Tobias Finds A New Target In Next Week’s Black Lightning

by Erik Amaya


The war for Freeland’s soul continues as Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) identifies a new target: Reverend Jeremiah Holt (Clifton Powell). But as this preview of next week’s Black Lightning reveals, he will not be so easily intimidated by the mob boss. Meanwhile, Anissa (Nafessa Williams) faces a home delivery with a decidedly metahuman twist.

Tobias’s new plan to redevelop parts of Freeland has a real world equivalent; as do most of his schemes not involving the murder of Black Lightning (Cress Williams). It will be interesting to see how this project develops and what it means for people in town as the show’s take on the Tuskegee Experiments and the 1980s crack epidemic have both been devastating for Freeland and Jefferson.

Black Lightning airs Tuesdays on The CW.
