TV Review: Black Lightning (Season 1, Episode 12)
Share This Article:
Resurfacing for the first time in a few weeks, Tobias Whale is back in Freeland - as is Khalil, now walking but brainwashed. The ASA has never been more dangerous for Jefferson Pierce than they are now: they’ve run him and his family out of their home, they have a spy at the school, the police department essentially in their pocket, and Tobias Whale, Khalil and Lala out there doing their bidding. Tobias and Khalil were both being held in an ASA facility, where they were being treated for their respective injuries at the hands (directly or indirectly) of Black Lightning. More details are revealed about the Freeland Experiment: the vaccine that was intended to keep the city’s citizens docile didn’t work, but rather gave young children metahuman abilities. So far, nothing new. But there’s a reason the ASA has been so focused on bringing in Black Lightning. The children who displayed abilities as a result of the vaccine would die before they fully matured. The ASA then created Green Light to prevent these children from becoming sick, but this too failed.
