Black Lightning 3×14 recap: Season 3, Episode 14, “The Book of War: Chapter One: Homecoming,” Aired Feb. 24, 2020
In Black Lightning 3×14, the war rages on (after Lynn and Tobias’ breakout), leaving no one to escape the wrath of the Markovian’s (even the Perdi got caught in the crossfire); Jen and Khalil take a break from their relationship; Lynn seeks help with her Green Light addiction; The Pierce family have a family dinner, and open up to each other; Lady Eve now owns Lala; and lastly, we discover that the American Government were the ones to fund the Markovian Metahuman research – and it all began with Gravedigger!
Lets breakdown the top 3 moments of Black Lightning 3×14 in more detail:
#1 Lynn opens up about being an addict
While cooking dinner at home, Lynn collapses, leaving her no choice but to open up about her issues. She admits that she is an addict and apologizes to Jefferson about her recent behavior. Lynn also tells him about a secret pill she has hidden, which she later destroys with Jen. The Pierce family dinner was an important moment for all really. Each one opened up about some stuff they weren’t proud of/ had been keeping secret. Lynn’s of course was about her drug addiction. The first step in anyone’s recovery, is admitting it out loud that there is a problem. So the fact that Lynn felt like she was able to tell everyone the truth finally, means she is on the way to getting back to her healthy self.
I’m so glad that the rest of the family have finally took Lynn’s addiction seriously, and are going to help her with her recovery. Having a supportive family means she has the best chance of getting better. Let’s hope she continues on her path of health and makes a full recovery.
#2 Lady Eve takes charge
Lady Eve plans to get out from Lala’s control, and it works out perfectly for her. Lady Eve owes Lala money, and Devonte comes to collect it. However, she sneakily drugs him and then learns about the briefcase situation with Lala. Lady Eve now knows this is her way to take charge again and be the one up top. She comes face-to-face with Lala, after calling him to say she wants to make a deal with him. Lala basically laughs in her face, and obviously doesn’t want to take her up on her offer. But then Lady Eve reveals she knows about the briefcase, and spoke the words required to control him. Lady Eve states she only needed the briefcase, and promises to help him get his revenge.
#3 Khalil and Jen call it quits
Anissa kept expressing her throughts about Jen should stay away from Khalil, as the firewall isn’t a definete solution to the Painkiller problem. It turns out, Anissa was right to be wary over the situation, After Jen and Khalil have a sweet moment together, the firewall breaks down and Painkiller arises. Internally, Khalil and Painkiller fight each other, however in real life, Khalil is strangling Jen. Khalil wins the battle eventually, but the damage has already been done. Jen can no longer trust Khalil, since he isn’t exactly stable right now. Khalil later apologizes before he leaves, and Jen makes it clear she doesn’t want to see him. The pair break it off, but I don’t think it will be the last we see of Khalil.
I can’t say I’m overly pleased about this, but due to what went down, I think it was definitely the best decision. Once Khalil has healed, maybe had some therapy, and had time to work on himself, I’d love to see Jen and Khalil back together.
