Black Lightning’s second episode of the season starts with an intense game of Chess as Whale is blaming Painkiller for not protecting Syonide from her attack last week. Whale is in no mood for excuses and after every poor move, Painkiller is beaten. Needless to say whatever “moral compass” Syonide provided Whale, is now officially gone.
Meanwhile the victims of the Freeland experiments are beginning to wake up from the pods and are using their powers in attempts to free themselves from government control. Lynn attempts to calm the escaped victim but to no avail as the unknown female victim knocks down a brick wall and escapes to the streets. After reviewing the security footage, Gambi identifies the escaped victim as Wendy, a former nursing student enabled with the power of telekinesis.
