After four seasons, fifty-eight episodes, and far too much Tobias Whale, Black Lightning finally comes to an end. I’m going to miss this show, although not some of the recurring situations the characters kept trapping themselves in.
The end of the road is about here for Black Lightning. I’m still sorry the show is being cancelled, even with vague hints of Black Lightning himself at least possibly appearing again in the Arrowverse in the future.
The end is in sight as progress is being made on several different subplots on the final season of Black Lightning. Tobias Whale seems to hold all the cards, but there’s an impressive array of characters opposing him, and Whale just may have underestimated all of them.
I have to say, I’m going to miss the show. It’s been great seeing an important character from comic book history finally appearing in live action, and even getting his own show.
…every show has ups and downs, and “The Book of Ruin: Chapter Four: Lyding” was definitely on the down side. There were a lot of flaws in the episode, and I have to admit I was generally disappointed.
After a side trip for a backdoor pilot for a potential spin-off series, Black Lightning continues with what is unfortunately the final season. Tobias Whale is pulling out all the stops in his bid for power in Freeland and his war against Jefferson Pierce.
episode seven of the season was a “back door pilot” for the potential series, which they called “Painkiller.” It has a good bit of potential.
What do you do when one of the lead actors in your show decides to leave? There have been a lot of ways to approach it in the past, from killing the character, to recasting and pretending nothing’s different, among others. Well, you have a lot more options on a show where comic book logic and science play a part.
…most things got better this episode, as well as one major surprise. There’s a lot going on as we start the next subsection of the season in “The Book of Ruin: Chapter One: Picking Up the Pieces.”
The last season of Black Lightning hasn’t exactly been an uplifting one. Despite them ending the third season with a big win, there were losses along the way and those shadows are looming large over the characters. This isn’t helped by many of them spending most of this season making one bad decision after another.
