Critic reviews for And Then the Devil Brought the Plague: The Book of Green Light
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.
You can tell a lot about a show from a mediocre episode. "And Then the Devil Brought the Plague" was a mediocre episode of Black Lightning. Still, if this is going to be what a medicore episode looks like, then this show is something special.
It's fresh, thrilling and brutal. It's everything you would expect from a superhero series and then some.
Anissa is really coming into her own as determined to be a superhero and Whale is finally a more complex villain. I'm here for what comes next.
It only takes this episode a few minutes to start dropping tantalizing hints about the characters' backstories...In an interesting parallel, both Tobias Whale and Anissa Pierce spend this episode investigating their own family histories.
