    Not the best season or the worst season this show had. My few issues with this season are the following, the police chief, tobias whale as last vilain and the fact that this season didn't felt like the last season of the show. Police chief was lame, boring, atrocious. Shes one dimensionnal and we already had police members with the same kind of grudge against meta. Chief also did many bad leadership decisions. She forced one of her detective to be part of the anti meta human squad when the said detective didn't wanted to be part of the squad. She mixed up her feeling and the job. Tobias Whale felt over used, he had nothing new to give us. Did the city forgot Tobias was a crime lord during season 1 and 2? also keep in mind he was considered as a dangerous meta human treat in season 3, leading him to be behind bars in season 3. Him becoming as powerful as he was during a few mounths time made no sense, we also had a similar story in arrow when Diaz controlled star city to have a seat at a big criminal group. I believe at first they planned on ending the show at season 5 but in between season 3 and 4, the actress playing Jennifer and the actor playing jefferson probably had behind the scenes conflict-drama, driving the actress toward leaving the show. Since Jennifer actress and jefferson actor were no more able to work together, they ended the show with season 4. Grave digger was still around by the end of the show. Lala was still around by the end of the show. Bigger criminal groups are still around. Now, enough negative being said, here are the reasons why it deserved an 8 out of 10. Jefferson being broken after Henderson death was amazing, giving us great acting scenes. I didnt enjoyed him being off character that often, using his powers for revenge despite Gambi warning. JJ having social media felt dumb but teenage-like thing to do. Having a different Jennifer was interresting. Lala and the war gang was great. The new meta human killer was interresting. The season as a whole was very entertaining. Gambi was good as always. Painkiller being a good part of this season was amazing. Painkiller episodes were among the best the show aired. Despite Lynn story about drug being back and not as good as season 3 did, it was still well done and realistic, very grounded. Drug addict do lie to their families and therapists. Jennifer drug almost killed her, here again its fine since the message is well delivered, however the first time drug was a thing in the show, it was better since it was new. shakuur, henderson friend was amazing, he was a great remplacement for henderson. Tobias dying was great ending. The writting was great as any other seasons. Most of the characters all got proper closure. This was a flawed but very strong season. Sadly, we won't see Odel dying since Painkiller spin off was canceled before being aired. If you liked black lightning, you will enjoy that season as well.

    Terminou com honrar, é uma das poucas séries do Arrowverse que começou bem coesa, pé no chão e precisa e terminou assim, a 3 temporada foi meio Meh.... Mais essa 4 temporada limpou tudo, só acho que os efeitos a partir da 3 temporada deu uma caidinha mais é bem pouco, cenas de lutas melhoraram, só acho que foi erro ter escolhido o Peankiller para uma spin off, ele evolui muito mais muito bem só que ainda soa secundário não traria público, talvez uma série da Anissa com Grace séria uma lavagem do desastre que é Batwoman com a Ryan, mais mesmo assim a série teve um fim excelente só acho que faltou crossover com The Flash, Superman e Supergirl, o Jefferson deixou suas filhas no comando, The flash têm Nora e Bart, Superman e Lois têm Jonathan e Jordan e Arrow deixou a Mia, realmente olha a organização do Arrowverse, já temos desde 2018 já temos referência de liga da justiça jovem e multiverso desde 2014, a Warner perde muito em não investir melhor nesse universo e fazer um upgrade a Marvel recebe os créditos pela qualidade. Foi um prazer acompanhar até aqui esse show marcante.

    I really like this series. The storyline on this season started of ropey but has improved as it's gone on. What's really started to really irritate me is the constant derogatory black comments. They use to be here and there in the previous 3 seasons but in this season it's getting a bit much and ruining the watch. Wish they would just concentrate on making a good script without the ‘black' slurs.

    The final season, for the me the let down of Jennifer character towards the end of the series, the replacement didn't even come close to how the previous actor played.

    This season was much better. My applause go out to the new Jenn aka Lightning, she is a much better actress and fits the character and family better. Great job.

    It seemed rushed. Stuff isn't making sense.
  • Jun 15, 2021
    A series that came from more to less, with an ending that allows it to be expanded.

    It's the 4th and final run for the CW's first black solo superhero 1 year after the Markovians were defeated; Detective Henderson lost his life, Jefferson feels responsible for it, Lynn relied too much on using Greenlight and has struggled to be sober, Jennifer didn't want to give up on bringing Khalil back to his senses, and Anissa's girlfriend fell into a coma Season 4 starts with Jefferson and his family having to make this final stand to defend Freeland, the metahumans and defeat Tobias Whale once and for all What's his grand master plan even though he's claiming to the public he wants to do philanthropic work for the city? The new police captain, Chief Lopez is determined to tag and document all existing metas to bring stability back to Freeland, she feels it's up to the people in blue uniforms to take back the city and not the drug gangs Jennifer is thinking about going to college, Anissa now works in the genetics lab, Lynn is starting to feel helpless being she is no meta and doesn't have the proper training Tobias Whale has developed a new serum boosting his invulnerabilty which might make it impossible for Jefferson to take him down Khalil aka Painkiller has chosen exile to redefine himself leaving the assassin part of his mind behind But perhaps the biggest shift for everyone is Jennifer; her powers become unstable and she disappears then comes back with a completely different look This season also marks the last time China Anne McClain is playing this character Is murder still justified if it's for survival?, maybe we don't need powers to be helpful, being reckless doesn't make us brave or smart Black Lightning may be gone but he is forever the hope of Freeland The constant lies and betrayals among Jefferson and his family is just as much of a challenge Jefferson and the Pierces almost look like they'll lose everything with Tobias having so much at his disposal The series finale leads to Jefferson at his most low with the rest of his family making their one big final stand against Tobias Whale's reign to free Freeland and all the metas As far as the other seasons go this is the weakest of the four; it should've been able to stretch its legs more and developed on a grander scale This is the biggest stakes I'll admit for the characters but so many other plot threads feel unresolved or left hanging Shame this was so short lived but it felt refreshing to have an Afro centric superhero on network tv More future comic book heroes should be this diverse and inclusive while tackling heavy social issues

    Had potential in the first season, but like the other DC shows on the CW, got boring real quick.

    Needed at least one more season
