The CW has released a new synopsis for "Three Sevens: The Book of Thunder", the upcoming sixth episode of Black Lightning.
Judging by the synopsis, the episode will juggle a handful of different plotlines, including the newfound superpowers of both Anissa Pierce (Nafessa Williams) and Jennifer Pierce (China Anne McClain). With the pair appearing to use their powers in new ways in next week's episode, it appears that that could continue, with the sisters processing their new abilities in different ways.
Meanwhile, Jefferson Pierce/Black Lightning (Cress Williams) will be continue to investigate his father's murder, which could be taking a pretty interesting turn. In the series' pilot, Jefferson said that he originally suited up as Black Lightning in order to punish Tobias Whale (Marvin "Krondon" Jones III) after he literally stuffed newspaper articles down his father's throat until Jefferson's father choked to death on them.
But judging by this synopsis, it appears that another culprit could have caused the murder of Jefferson's father - and fans will just have to wait to find out who.
