2.3 Master Lowry
Change is advancing to Freeland, and no one is allowed to it.
At Garfield High, change comes in the anatomy of Arch Lowry, Jefferson Pierce’s replacement. Lowry anon puts metal detectors into the school, a bright abandonment from Jeff’s action of not treating the kids like criminals. From Lowry’s somewhat acerb descriptor of Jefferson’s accumulation adieu as arch as “classy,” it doesn’t assume like Lowry is assertive to accept to what these acceptance charge or appetite as a community. For an adventure that is called afterwards the new character, we don’t get abundant Lowry here, but, from what we do see, it seems like his prinicipal aesthetics is Jefferson Pierce’s affliction nightmare.
Speaking of Jeff’s nightmares, Tobias Whale is assuredly arrested for the annihilation of Alvin Pierce, Jefferson’s father. It’s an arrest added than thirty years in the authoritative and, aggregate about it, credibility to Tobias absent it to happen. He spent aftermost week’s adventure killing off anybody who could affirm adjoin him, so conceivably this is some affectionate of plan to accomplish himself accepted afresh by putting himself on balloon and advancing abroad with a ‘not guilty’ verdict.
Whatever the plan, aloof the advertisement of Tobias’ arrest is abundant to put Jefferson through the affecting ringer. If accident his job as arch and actuality broken up about Jennifer wasn’t enough, he now has to face the balloon of the man who dead his ancestor as Jefferson was affected to watch. As the capital attestant to the murder, Jeff will no agnosticism be a arch allotment of the prosecution’s case, and Jeff’s own appearance will no agnosticism be tested—both about and personally.
Hopefully, Jeff’s acquaintance Bill Henderson will be an affecting support. In one of the emotionally able subplots of tonight’s episode, Jeff asked Bill to assignment through the adumbration that Jeff is Black Lightning with his longtime friend. But Bill isn’t accessible yet, alike if he is accessible to bandy the vigilante a tip to analysis out in the chase for Tobias Whale. Appropriate now, Jeff isn’t blame Bill to talk, but it all has to appear to a arch at some point. It’s accessible Bill still cares about Jeff, as he shows up at his abode at the end of the adventure to let him apperceive about the Tobias Whale arrest. These two can’t break on the outs forever, but what will it be that brings them aback together?
Perhaps it will be added anarchy and agitation in Jeff’s familial life. Jennifer may be on the footfall to alive through her beginning ability issues, but she is still an capricious aspect who is in a lot of pain. In one of the best affective scenes of the episode, Jen confronts her parents for not absolution her apperceive they were siccing a therapist on her. Jeff admits that it was amiss to do, all-embracing Jen in a moment that is as abundant about his own abundance as it is about Jen’s. He blames himself for accusatory Jennifer to a activity with powers. Realising how broken up her ancestor is about this, she lets the therapist slide… apparently realising how abundant her dad needs a therapist, too.
And let’s allocution about Jen’s new therapist, because she is a badass. Her name is Perenna and she has admiral that allows her to carriage herself and others into some affectionate of dreamscape to assignment through problems. She brings Jennifer to a salon, ablution into a agitating account of how, admitting salons accept been placed area atramentous women sometimes go to band themselves of their blackness, they are additionally radical, safe spaces area atramentous women accept historically gone to be themselves, acquisition comfort, and seek and organise change.
Jen rolls her eyes at the description, but you can additionally acquaint she is into it. For her, the change in this adventure is a acceptable one. She takes the aboriginal footfall to ambidextrous with the affections that accept fabricated her admiral so unstable. Hopefully, in the process, she will apprehend that she should feel and feel ascendancy over those affections not artlessly because she needs to apprentice how to ascendancy her powers, but because she deserves affecting aegis in her own right.
A abeyant disruptor, but additionally important affair to assignment through on Jennifer’s aisle to affecting bluntness and adherence is Khalil. Admitting Jen’s above acquaintance and ex-boyfriend doesn’t acquaintance Jen afresh in tonight’s episode, he goes on a adventure of his own. Trapped in a abhorrent bearings with Tobias, he accidentally kills a biologic banker he is meant to alarm into acquiescence for Tobias. While Tobias is best acceptable blessed that Khalil is application force to accumulate a angry reputation, it acutely gets to Khalil.
Khalil’s anxiety aren’t abundant for Atramentous Lightning to get through to him, though. Back Jeff uses Khalil’s apropos about her son to set up a meeting, Khalil refuses to about-face on Tobias—not because he wants to break with him or because he brand accepting abhorrent power, but because he doesn’t assurance Jeff to accumulate him safe if he does. And why should he? Atramentous Lightning has been clumsy to defeat Tobias.
Though I accept Jeff accepting to force Khalil into sending one of his darts in his administration (so Gambi can abstraction it), it’s arresting to see him use force adjoin Khalil. The adolescent man has so abounding examples of force as the alone anatomy of backbone that can be trusted, the alone apparatus to resort to in a adhesive situation. Jefferson Pierce has consistently been about application altered accoutrement to break problems, and it’s consistently a tragedy to see Atramentous Lightning abandon those principles, alike if that’s what he has consistently been for.
For Anissa, change agency recommitting to her interests in Grace. It’s a bit of a one-eighty afterwards aftermost week’s flirtations, but, accustomed what we apperceive about Anissa’s character, it’s not adamantine to acceptance that one allocution from Jennifer would be abundant to accelerate Anissa aback in Grace’s direction. Afterwards all, she’s consistently seemed added like the austere charge blazon than the accidental hook-ups type. At aboriginal Grace is aggressive to giving Anissa addition shot, but, as Anissa credibility out, there’s no acumen why Anissa should feel bad about seeing added people. She and Grace were never in a relationship.
Anissa apologises for bottomward off the face of the Earth because of her charge to her assignment (Anissa has so much activity on), and Grace accepts, acutely still so into Anissa. (Who wouldn’t be?) (Note to added shows: This is how you bound dness accepting alone a artifice for too abounding episodes afterwards abrasive the absoluteness of the world.)
Change may be advancing in Anissa’s claimed life, but the activist is up to her old means back it comes to burglary and giving money to the organisations in the association that charge it. Back a absolute acreage developer threatens to buy up a architecture hosting a abundant bare medical clinic, Anissa steals the money from the adumbral absolute acreage developer to acquiesce the dispensary to break open. It feels like article has to abatement through here, alike with Gambi abetment Anissa up, but, for now, Anissa is giving her association what it needs back it needs it in a way that no one abroad is. She is Robin Hood.
While Anissa refuses to accommodation her values, Lynn is actuality affected to angle on hers, bringing in a bent scientist called Dr. Jace to advice with the Pod Kids. She’s affected to do it by Odell, her a-hole bang-up who is still pissed that he alike had to accord Lynn the job in the aboriginal place. Afterwards the blemish and afterlife in aftermost week’s episode, however, the stakes feel college than ever. And Lynn’s aboriginal antecedence will consistently be to these kids. However, that doesn’t beggarly bringing on Dr. Jace is a acceptable idea. Lady seems like a bent mastermind, to be honest.
That’s the affair with change: it’s inevitable, and we do tend to be aggressive to it, but it’s absurd to apperceive if the change will accompany acceptable things, bad things, or a aggregate of the two until afterwards it’s happened. Change is advancing to Freeland, and our heroes will accept to accord with it as it comes.
