Will Lynn Stewart’s Green Light addiction continue to get worse?

In season 3 episode 4, it was revealed that Agent Odell had put a plan in place to get Lynn to take Green Light. The plan worked and Lynn ended up saving her patients, but at a cost. She is now addicted to Green Light. Of course, Lynn herself hasn’t realized this.

In Black Lightning season 3 episode 6, she continues to take the drug and seems to not see a problem with it at all. However, her behavior is very unpredictable. Her flaws are exaggerated and her good points are harder to see. Which leads us to the question: will her addiction get worse?

Things could go either way. She might be able to beat this addiction and return to the version of Lynn that her family knows and loves, or she might continue to be addicted and continue to act strangely and push away those she loves. In the latest episode, she moves out of the house and tells Jefferson she’s done, which shows her pushing away the people she cares about.

Hopefully, Lynn will be able to beat this addiction and come out on the other side stronger. With Agent Odell out of the picture, she probably has a good chance of returning to her old self.

With Agent Odell gone, who will lead the A.S.A. after ‘Black Lightning’ season 3 episode 6?

Agent Odell is dead, but that doesn’t mean the A.S.A. will necessarily pack up and leave Freeland. Perhaps the A.S.A. will send someone else to lead their operation. Or perhaps one of the A.S.A. soldiers already there will lead. And then the Pierce family and the resistance to the A.S.A. occupation will be in the same position they’re in now.

Who will lead the A.S.A. in Freeland? Will whoever takes over be worse than Agent Odell ever was? And what does this all mean for the war against Markovia? The answers to these questions are anybody’s guess, but finding them just might lead to answers about where Black Lightning is going after season 3 episode 6.

Will Peter Gambi tell the Pierce family about Khalil Payne?

In Black Lightning season 3 episode 6, Gambi makes an important discovery. One that could change everything for the Pierce family, especially Jennifer. He finds out that Khalil’s grave is empty. Though Gambi doesn’t know the whole story of what Agent Odell did to Khalil, he knows enough to know that he could be alive and fighting Anissa.

Will he tell the Pierce family what he discovered? It could go either way. He might at least mention it to Anissa. Or perhaps he’ll tell Jefferson.

If he does tell either of them, Jennifer might then find out and if she does it would be interesting to see her reaction. She would probably want to know where Khalil was and if he was okay. Unfortunately, Gambi would not know the answer to either of those questions, but Jennifer might eventually find out on her own.

It will be interesting to see if these questions are answered in upcoming episodes. It would be nice to know what will happen with Lynn’s Green Light addiction, who will lead the A.S.A. now that Agent Odell is gone, and if Gambi will tell the Pierce family what he found out about Khalil.
