Black Lightning Season 4 Episode 7 Spoilers

The seventh episode of ‘Black Lightning’ season 4, titled ‘Painkiller,’ will serve as a backdoor pilot for a proposed spin-off show featuring the character of Khalil Payne/ Painkiller, who fans were first introduced to as Jennifer’s ex-boyfriend way back in season 2. The character’s transformation into Painkiller saw him act as a villain. Still, the next episode will likely set up a redemption path for the young meta-human and redefine the character as an anti-hero, if not an outright hero.
