[up] I was actually thinking Baron Bedlam.

I wonder if Lynn actually bought Agent Odell's lie that Issa was killed by the Markovians.

I don't get Markovia. I'd think at this point what they've done would be considered an act of war several times over.

I would be okay with the green light babies all defecting to Markovia in the season finale because the ASA treated them so badly.

I wouldn't mind Geoforce or Baron Bedlam being the villain this season. Acting like it's a problem because a cartoon did it first is silly.

Agent Odell will be the ultimate villain of this season, I can feel it.

I'd take a bet with you on that, but we all know you're winning.

Odell can't be anything but the Big Bad of this season I'd say.

So does that mean that we should countdown to when Carson Williams dies?

Odell is 100% going to You Have Outlived Your Usefulness him sooner rather than later.

Is Freeland on the Markovian border? This is really stretching my willing suspension of disbelief.

Yeah.

They are certainly getting away with a lot. How is it the United States hasn't just declared war on Markovia completely?

Even if they are a rogue nation, unless they have their own nukes, they should have been bombed into oblivion.

Seems pretty probable that Odell is lying about Markovians. Something's going on, but it ain't "foreign military secretly invading the U.S."

I had a feeling that Odell might have been lying about the Markovian war thing, until I saw those people talking about getting American blood. Markovia does/did exist in the DC comics so I think that Agent Odell is telling the truth about the Markovians but Markovia wants to keep this war on the down-low as much as possible to avoid getting all of America involved.

I think its more like Odell actually profiting from the Markovians, as he has an excuse to further decrease peoples freedoms and increase his own power.

When did Khalil learn all those martial arts?

Jen chewing out Anissa for being out is a hilarious bit of irony.

I guess I got a bit confused because they were asking him what he knows but now I realize it was part of testing to see if it worked.

So, do you think only Jefferson will appear in Crisis ? I suspect so, though it would be a real shame. I would love to see Anissa and Jennifer meat the female Arrowverse bunch.

And I also think Gambi would get along pretty great with Cisco.

Depends on if they're using the Crisis to condense everything into one universe rather than the three we currently have or not.Like if they are I could see more than Jefferson getting a role but if they're trying to stick to the three universes without consolidating them into one I could see them getting cameos at best but no actual roles.

I can see Supergirl's Earth and Earth 1 being rolled into one, but Black Lightning's Earth?

Not much of a chance, since the show is shot in Atlanta, Georgia, unlike the rest of the Arrowverse (which is shot in Vancouver, Canada).

I'm of two minds on the subject. On the one hand, that wouldn't be much of a barrier. Flash/Arrow/Kara/Actually Superman/whoever stays out of Freeland. Odell is still a dick, Tobias is still dying. Business continues as usual.

On other hand, the existence of metas will throw a wrench into the cogs. In Black Lightning metas are a government experiment, and they're currently the focus of a Secret War over who can weaponize them first, whereas in Earth 1, they're just a thing that happens now. You can't throw a stick without hitting a new way to make a meta.
