Lala begins to see Will, and ends up with his face tattooed on his chest next to Lawanda White. Lala begins taking control of The 100 and wants to sell traditional drugs on the streets while planning to get his revenge on Tobias Whale.
While investigating Jennifer Pierce's powers, Lynn Stewart discovers that her electrical powers are different to Jefferson's. While Jefferson is a battery that can manipulate surrounding energy, Jennifer can actually create it.
Martin Proctor kidnaps Peter Gambi and proceeds to torture him, demanding the identity of Black Lightning. Knowing of Peter's relationship with Jefferson, they kidnap him as well to force Gambi to talk, unaware that he is Black Lightning. Jefferson causes a momentarily power failure, allowing Gambi to surprise and kill the A.S.A. agents.
The Pierce family head to Alvin Pierce's old house to hide out. While recovering from his ordeal, Gambi tells Jefferson that he needs to find the new A.S.A. spotter in the neighborhood who is on the lookout for metahuman children.
Proctor oversees the relocation of the stasis pods and has deduced that Jefferson is Black Lightning since the coincidence of his arrival and the power failure is too good to be true.
