At the end of season two, the stakes for CW’s Black Lightning were higher than ever. Pierce and his daughter, Jennifer, aka Lightning, have been recruited by the American Security Agency for a coming war with the Eastern European country of Markovia, who has been developing a metahuman army to rival America’s. As old friends return from beyond to aid in the struggle to come, what crazy twists should fans expect from season three?!
