For those wondering if Black Lightning would directly reference the events of Crisis On Infinite Earths, we have an answer for you… yes! The promo for next week’s episode of The CW series teases an ominous red sky over the city of Freeland.
The episode itself deals with Jefferson (Cress Williams) facing off against an alternate universe version of his daughter Jennifer (China Anne McClain). The episode looks set to give some major context to the idea of the Multiverse for the series, before bringing Black Lightning into the fray in Crisis part three on Tuesday.
