The CW has released photos for "The Book of Rebellion: Chapter One: Exodus," the upcoming eighth episode of Black Lightning's second season.
Based on the preview for the episode, Jennifer (China Anne McClain) and Khalil's running away together in "The Sange" will factor heavily into "Exodus," with Jennifer's absence in particular serving to be the proverbial last straw in the parent-child tensions that have been building after the events of The CW series' first season finale. You can check out the gallery below.
The episode will also see the introduction of Cutter (Kearran Giovanni). Announced back in September, Cutter is described as a "smart, proud, tough, and beautiful woman more than able to best a man in combat" who just so happens to be a mercenary that was trained by British Intelligence.
It's unclear exactly how Cutter will factor into Black Lightning -- though from the preview she doesn't exactly look like a friend to the Pierce family --but it's possible that the character could be yet another way executive producer and showrunner Salim Akil is making good on his promise of more metahumans during the series' second season.
"You know, one of the things I was saying about the upcoming season is that we're doing is I want to give a nod to comic books in a stronger way," Akil told reporters at Comic Con. "The first four episodes are called 'The Book of Consequences: The Rise of the Greenlight Babies.'"
It's also possible that Cutter is somehow linked to the recent attempt on Peter Gambi (James Remar's) life. While Gambi was able to escape his would-be assassins and later made sure they never came after anyone else again, it's still a mystery who was behind order to kill him. With Gambi's ASA past, the best guess is something government-related -- and with Cutter being trained by British Intelligence, she might have some answers.
Black Lightning airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW. "The Book of Rebellion: Chapter One: Exodus" airs December 4th.
