Black Lightning Season 4 Episode 1 Spoilers

The first episode of season 4 of ‘Black Lightning’ is titled ‘The Book of Reconstruction: Chapter 1.’ It will follow Jefferson Pierce’s life as he deals with his long-time friend Detective Henderson’s (Damon Gupton) death. Pierce is distraught and helpless because of his inability to save the world, which is why the new season will showcase a different side to him, a man who is not a hero but just a regular guy trying to protect his family.

However, he has other responsibilities, as he might soon be called for assistance in creating the boarding school for metahumans headed by Lynn (Christine Adams). Lynn and Jefferson will also face conflicts with the former still holding onto the secret that she still hasn’t gotten rid of the drug habit yet. The Pierce family has significantly gotten closer over the last few seasons, but Lynn’s secret might once again jeopardize the good thing going on.

Meanwhile, Gambi (James Remar) comes across an interesting opportunity. Lastly, Tobias Whale (Marvin “Krondon” Jones III) is still out there, mysteriously plotting his way inside Freeland while Gravedigger (Wayne Brady) is also around, waiting for the right moment to show up. The pair will surely come up with an unthinkable plan to defeat Pierce. Here is the trailer for the season 4 premiere!
