The fact that these characters are given the time to grow and come into view, is commendable and their development does not seem forced at all.

"The Book of Revelations" was another decent episode of this freshman CW drama. The show has lost some of its early spark, but it is still a decent show.

"The Book of Revelations" centered on of Black Lightning's strongest, most subversive aspects: it is about a superhero dad...Black Lightning has deeper ambitions. May that ever be so.

Mar 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

In essence, "The Book Of Revelations" feels like a necessary, welcome shift in identity for Black Lightning without losing what's made the show so successful thus far.
