Jennifer Begins To Exhibit A New Strength In A Preview Of Next Week’s Black Lightning

by Erik Amaya


While Anissa (Nafessa Williams) has already discovered her air-bending ability, it seems Jennifer (China Anne McClain) may also have some superhuman strength as well. At least, that seems to be the case in this clip from next week’s Black Lightning.

Hopefully her powers are meta-gene related and not because she’s been trying Greenlight; the show’s designer drug which gives people enhanced strength. Introduced this week, the appeal of Greenlight is instant, even if it didn’t seem to work correctly on the boy who brought it to Garfield High. He had a bad reaction immediately, but tried to score some more later in the episode because, according to Gambi (James Remar), the drug creates an almost instantaneous chemical dependency.

So you can see why it would be bad for Jennifer to give it a try.

Meanwhile, Tobias (Marvin “Krondon” James III) and his crew continue to set up their trap for Black Lightning (Cress Williams) as assassinating his character is the only way he can put Black Lighting in the ground for good. But will his attempt to tarnish the hero’s rep work?

Black Lightning airs Tuesdays on The CW.
