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.
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 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.
