Last night, the Season Premiere of season 2 of Black Lightning has finally been released on the CW. So this is the time to find out our verdict of “Rise of the Green Light Babies”.
You were expecting this date forward and it has finally arrived. Last night, the Season Premiere of season 2 of Black Lightning made its grand return on the CW and it was pretty fast-paced action. Jefferson and his family-they managed to surpass their problems ? A new death was to be deplored, but who is it ? The editorial’ of melty offers you to discover its verdict of the first episode of season 2 of Black Lightning. The bulk of “Rise of the Green Light Babies” is that nothing that happened in the Season Finale of season 1 has not been forgotten. Jefferson was absent after having been attacked by Tobias and is not returned after… of course, he was literally there all this time as a Black Lightning, but the school board didn’t see it that way and asked him to withdraw and close the high school of Garfield High. The world of Lynn has also been changed by what she saw and she must navigate this new world with not only a husband and two girls super powerful but also a group affected by the Green Light.
The end of the headmaster…
In addition, the Season Premiere of season 2 of Black Lightning has given us many surprises and the excitement was at an appointment. Bill Henderson, a long-time friend of our hero, has finally discovered the secret of Jefferson Pierce and confronted him about his identity. It was a heartbreaking, when one could see the trust between the two men breaking apart after decades of friendship. Their link can he be restored ? The road will be long to regain their friendship of the past… In any case, this great revelation has worried Jefferson because as he said “all the people who know the identity of the Black Lightning find themselves hurt”. Will he be able to protect his friend ? So for the moment, the existence of the inspector is not in danger, another character has died and this could have many consequences on the rest of the series. Syonide, the daughter of substitution of Tobias, was killed by Fowdy and the big bad is determined to get revenge. For him, Syonide was “the only thing that remains for me in this world for me”, but now that she is dead, the big bad could be even more formidable than it already is… It was a wise choice not to kill Tobias last season, now as a pillar of the criminal Freeland and main enemy of Jefferson.
Tobias more formidable than ever !
The girls of Jefferson have also had their share of upheavals. Anissa has shown, once again, reckless and has decided to become the Robin hood of modern times. She has used her powers to steal from rich criminals in order to help the poor, and especially the church. His father should not be excited to learn that even if his cause is just. However, it is Jennifer who has encountered the most difficulties in this first episode of season 2 of Black Lightning. His powers have manifested themselves in ways new and unusual, found floating and shining above his bed or curled up in the bathtub surrounded by a bubble of power that only his father was able to turn it off. If these special effects were a pure beauty, the young woman has made it increasingly difficult to manage his powers and the risk of isolating itself from the outside world. In any case, it is in the most quiet times of the series in which the Pierce to meet and discuss what Black Lightning really shines.
A family before everything !
The dialogues of the series and how the main characters interact has always been extremely relaxed, real, and often punctuated with humour. This maintains the balance of melodrama and gives it to Pierce the sense of an ordinary family who is not always focused on a big bad and on the way to defeat him, but rather on those moments of regular life. Moreover, this new season tries clearly to de-stigmatize mental health issues, as do many shows this season. Lynn encourages Jefferson consulted with a therapist just like her daughter Jennifer who was out of control. It is one of the themes of the more nuanced of the season, but it is particularly important. The Season Premiere of season 2 of Black Lightning was very convincing to me and especially promising. The dynamics of the family Pierce, fighting together, is a unique series and we can’t wait to see the rest. Waiting for the airing of the episode 2 of season 2 of Black Lightning, check out all the series that you can mater on Netflix in October !
