Okay so Jennifer is as good as an ASA lapdog now, Lynn is addicted to Green Light, Anissa is doing crazy stuff still, and Jefferson is playing catch-up and dealing with a job change at the school. I miss the school because it gave the show a good reality grounding for Jefferson and Jennifer. I am also quite surprised to see Mike Lowery back in the show and more surprised when I saw him defending the student being taken. I know Mike Lowery is irrelevant but that is a nice touch that shows he has some capacity for "good". I am unsure if that video that Odell gave Jennifer was real or fake as Odell has crossed many lines and told many lies to do his job. Odell's character page gave him the title of an an Amanda Waller Expy but I think Odell is a far worse man because I am unsure of if Waller lied to people often or not.

Pretty much any version of Waller that wasn't written by Ostrander, the DCAU version or the JL:Gods and Monsters version, was as scummy as Odell.

Jennifer should have called Odell out on saying the American prison camps are keeping people alive unlike the Markovian ones.

Jesus Christ, Odell, you sick son-of-a......and that Major really needs a major punch in the face too.

That scene with Jefferson and the ASA goons was hard to watch.

So is Anissa immune to Khalil's poison?

Also how did she not recognize him?

That's certainly an interesting way of reprimanding your men Odell.

Well they've had decades of superhero comics doing just that to use as a basis.

Seriously Jefferson, why did you think bringing Tavon back into a police state was a good idea? Because it obviously wasn't.

Because he needed a way to get Anissa even angrier at him.

Cause I'm pretty sure she is now. She warned him and he didn't listen and it got Tavon killed.

In his defense, he only wanted to help Tavon's parents who were worried about their son.

Did Odell actually die?

How did Odell's men lose that fight?

Edit: Yikes. Anissa doesn't want to talk to him, Lynne is leaving him, and even Henderson seems to be turning on him if next week is anything to go on. And then, the Crisis.

Things are getting nutty.

[up] They certainly are. Freeland is certainly a different place than it was in season 1.

By the way, considering Brandon appeared when the Markovian invasion was starting, his meta power of geokinesis, and because his name starts with B and Brandon may be an alias, I suspect Brandon might be Black Lightning's take on the hero Geoforce. I could be wrong but the pieces are in place.

So does he have two powers? Because I'm not sure how he absorbed Jen's electricity.

I'm a little confused about that myself actually.

Maybe because he's grounding her or something?

I hope Odell didn't die, I wanted him to go out far more pathetically.

I guess nicknaming him "Brian" would've been too on the nose. Still, assuming that's him, Geo-Force has been seeing a bigger TV spotlight between this and Young Justice.

I wonder when we'll meet Wayne Brady's character.

[up][up] Yeah that was.....highly anti-climactic.

Also, never thought I'd say it after he annoyed me for so long in Season 2, but I actually love Tobias in his new role.

This show has already reversed four deaths. It wouldn't surprise me if Odell is a fifth but I hope that isn't the case.

Nov 20th 2019 at 10:06:54 PM

I'm surprised Odell went out quickly (for now) but I guess maybe he was always meant to be an Disc-One Final Boss?

I am not fully convinced Odell died. He is leading the ASA occupation and manipulating Jennifer so he has work he still needs to do.

Nov 21st 2019 at 1:24:39 PM

I'm going to blame the green light addiction for Lynn chewing out Jefferson for doing the right thing even if it puts the family in danger then immediately helping Tobias, instead of rampant stupidity.

[up] Good Idea. Lynn probably needs therapy just as much as Jennifer does because she married a superhero, she knows she married a superhero, and she gets mad at him being that superhero. Granted Lynn does have valid points against Jefferson and how he handles his ego, but that sense of self is why Black Lightning and Jefferson Pierce were beloved by the community and why both are needed. Lynn needs to learn that she has share Jefferson with the Freeland area. Failure at acknowledging this could potentially lead to Jefferson who walks out the next time.
