Gambi testing Jennifer and later seeing her showing her powers last night was awesome. People are enjoying Dr. Jace being connected with Markovia since that country is fresh on their minds from Young Justice S3

Hmm so after all that... Khalil actually isn't dead? He was shown in a pod in the season finale.

I think I'm totally in for The Agent Odell Justice League.

To me this show is just so all over the place. It feels like stories lines are developed and then dropped over and over again. Characters are introduced and then disappear for four or five episodes and then are back.

Example...the church needs money for the clinic b/c Tobias is doing something so Anissa steals it, but that story line just kind of stops when the Reverend gets killed or he doesn't get killed and Anissa doesn't seem to work at the clinic anymore or shes off chasing her GF that appears every fifth episode or so.

And Jefferson wants to be Principal again because the new Principal is bad, but then he doesn't because maybe the new Principal isn't so bad but we never really get confirmation of that because the guy hasn't been in an episode since.

And how many different villain plots did Tobias have this year...

Honestly, I'm disappointed because I think conceptually this show could work, but I'm not sure if I can keep up with it enough to keep watching.

I’m mainly sick of Tobias as the antagonist. I hope he stays on the backburner next year and they keep the focus on Markovia.

Thought the extended fight scene in the last episode was just terrible.

Supposedly Black Lightning will permanently get the slot after The Flash on Tuesdays next season.
