Critic reviews for And Then the Devil Brought the Plague: The Book of Green Light
Black Lightning digs into the past and brings to light several backstories of several different characters. While these storylines are interesting in isolation, it just starts to feel like too much all at once.
Though not as action-packed or emotional as the previous outings, this episode sets the table for the Black Lightning vs Tobias grudge match that's obviously coming.
The show has done a great job so far in keeping the show light in the midst of the heavy subjects it touches on.
All the table-setting this week is sure to make for some explosive moments in the coming episodes.
Given how many subplots and threads Black Lightning's already introduced, "The Book of Green Light" is a welcome change of pace, but at the same time, it still manages to introduce an important new depth to Black Lightning's mythos.
Black Lightning found our hero and villain pursuing each other more persistently than before, and the family secrets that loomed over their heads not only afforded insight into what founded their beef, but also informed each man's personality and values.
