‘Black Lightning’ 3×02 recap: The stakes get higher for the Pierce family

Black Lightning | Season 3 Episode 2 | The Book of Occupation: Chapter Two Scene | The CW

Monday’s episode of Black Lightning saw the stakes raised even higher for the Pierce family and for all of Freeland.

In case you missed it, here’s a recap of what went down in Monday’s show.

Jefferson knows Odell’s game

Still locked in the facility, Jefferson and Lynne talk as she goes through some data on the remaining pod kids. Jefferson points out that Odell is playing her and using her to get what he wants. Lynne disagrees and of course, right on cue, Odell sends Commander Williams to pop in the room. He says they cannot hear anything going on in the room and wanted to know why.

All of this leads Jefferson to question if the Markovian threat is real, saying Odell might be playing them all.

Oh, he is, Jefferson. He is.

However, the Markovians are real and they arrived in Freeland as the next scene shows several men getting out of trucks at Wolfsbane Mountain reporting for “duty”.

Odell makes his first weapon

As we found out last week, Odell wants to turn all the metas into weapons and use them. He created his first weapon on Monday’s episode as it was revealed that Khalil is alive. While Khalil may look the same, Odell is literally programming him to become a killer by testing a new memory wipe chip. Khalil is now known as Painkiller and is given a target to take out. The target? His own mother.

Just before the episode ends, Painkiller arrives at his old home and is greeted by his mother. She hugs him but realizes her son has been brainwashed. She pleads with him but Painkiller murders her without a thought and leaves her lifeless body on the floor.
