THE NEW NORMAL - Black Lightning's (Cress Williams) pursuit for Tobias (Marvin Jones III) continues. Anissa (Nafessa Williams) continues to find herself in the new normal.[src]


Lynn Stewart examines Anissa Pierce to better understand her metahuman powers. Peter Gambi admits to Jefferson Pierce that he concealed Tobias Whale's presence in Freeland from him because he doesn't want Jefferson to be a killer.

Inspector Bill Henderson blames The 100 for the break-in at the hospital. Gambi visits Lady Eve, and at her direction he kills Joey Toledo in order to make Tobias fall in line. Lynn asks Gambi to make a suit for Anissa to keep her safe.

Black Lightning confronts Tobias at a club. During the fight, Tobias is wounded and Tori is killed by a stray bullet. Lady Eve is also killed by Tobias' henchmen using electrical guns designed to pin the blame for her death on Black Lightning. It works, since Henderson now believes that Black Lightning is responsible for her death.

In a hotel room, Lawanda White talks to a resurrected Lala before she transforms into tattoo etched on his chest.
