Black Lightning S01E10 "Sins of the Father: The Book of Redemption" Recap


Thunder investigates Peter Gambi's lead about the gifted children going missing 30 years and discovers that they appear to still be alive in a suspended state in a warehouse. She wants to get them out but is worried that smashing up the machinery may do more harm than good so she brings what she has learned to Jefferson, asking him to help save them.

Lala begins having visions of Will, whom he previously killed but now appears as a tattoo on his chest. He intends to take over The 100 and orders the minions of the group to start selling regular drugs again. He intends to kill Tobias Whale if and when he ever comes back. Lala also violently assaults and kills some of the men that dare to defy him.

Black Lightning and Thunder return to the warehouse and discover that the kids have been moved and none of the equipment is left. They are attacked by some ASA agents but manage to fight them off. After they get away, they talk about the ASA and how Gambi was an agent of theirs until he forced them to stop. Anissa thinks they should start working together again but Jefferson insists that he can't trust him.

Two Bits visits Jefferson and tells him how he saw one of Jefferson's students kidnapped right after she displayed some sort of powered ability. She was also on Green Light so the police aren't investigating her disappearance, though her friend is looking for her and even brings fliers about her to Gambi, asking to put them up.

Anissa and Jennifer argue about powers once more because Anissa thinks she should learn about what she can do with her powers but Jennifer wants to pretend they don't exist. The argument escalates until Jennifer's entire body flares up in electricity. Anissa believes that Jennifer's powers are like Jefferson's.

Lynn also encourages Jefferson to start working with Gambi again since they need all the help they can get in this battle but Jefferson still refuses to do so. Lynn determines that Jennifer's ability differs from Jefferson's abilities in that while Jefferson can manipulate electricity, Jennifer can generate it.

Martin Proctor and the ASA kidnap and torture Gambi in the hopes of finding out who Black Lightning is, believing that Gambi was the one to tell Black Lightning about the warehouse of kids. When the initial torture tactics don't work, Martin orders two ASA agents to kidnap Jefferson since they know Gambi had helped to raise him after leaving the ASA even though Jefferson's father had been the one to investigate the ASA.

Jefferson is at the school mentoring a young boy inhale hopes of giving him a better future than a life of crime on the street. Two ASA agents arrive and take Jefferson away after he leaves the boy with an assignment to read some poems from a book by Langston Hughes, with the intent that they will discuss the poems next Saturday. They bring Jefferson to the warehouse where a badly wounded Gambi is lying on the floor. Gambi is able to kill the ASA agents once Jefferson causes an electrical surge that keeps them from being seen.

Jefferson brings Gambi back to his basement base where he can heal from his injuries while the Pierce family decides to hide out in Alvin's old house. Gambi tells Jefferson he needs to find the new ASA spotter in the community that identifies the kids that have gained powers from Green Lightning.

Martin is at the new base that holds the stasis pods holding the powered kids. He is able to deduce that Jefferson is Black Lightning and informs Vice-Principal Fowdy, who is revealed to be the new ASA spotter.

Shadowhunters S03E02 "The Powers That Be" Recap


Magnus brings Ale to a party and a ope of earthquake breaks out, indicating that the leylines have been disrupted since many of the supernatural people in attendance lose control of their magic. The following morning, a warlock leader named Lorenzo visiting Magnus to accuse him of corrupting the leyline underneath his home. Lorenzo suspects that Asmodeus, a user of dark magic that was banished to Edom, is the one whose magic was involved. Lorenzo believes that Magnus used Asmodeus' magic to do this. Alec overhears the conversation from the bathroom. When they talk about it after Lorenzo leaves, Alec is surprised to learn that Asmodeus is Magnus' father. They decide to work together to track Asmodeus down.

Jace asks Clary out for their first proper date but he feels nervous about trying to make it good for her. He even calls Simon for tips on what restaurant to take her to. But since Jace forgets to make a reservation, the only way they can be seated is to be seated at a communal table, coincidentally next to Simon and Maia who are out on a date of their own. Though the foursome try to make the best of an awkward situation, the good vibes are squashed when it's accidentally revealed that Jace and Maia once slept together.

Luke consults with Isabel about the cases that have popped up recently in which good people inexplicably turn bad. They all seem to be supernaturals connected but they have yet to figure out what is causing their violent tendencies to manifest. While Luke and Isabel work on their investigation, he advises her to find time for herself to fall in love.

Alec visits Lorenzo and sneaks Magnus in so he can secretly work to trace the magic that was used to corrupt the ley line beneath Lorenzo's home. Lorenzo rushes back downstairs when he hears a crash caused by Magnus getting thrown into a wall. Magnus is able to hide from Lorenzo catching him but he later tells Alec that the magic he traced was from Edom but it's not his father. It's something much worse and more evil than that.

After the awkward double-date, both Jace and Clary and Simon and Maia reaffirm their feelings for one another. Maia assures Simon that she doesn't want to be with anyone but him and he doesn't resent her for sleeping with Jace before they were together. Jace tells Clary that the only reason why he gets nervous in his approach to dating her is because of the depth of his feelings for her and not wanting to ruin what they have.

Alec brings the issue of the leylines to the Institute and declares that they must solve this problem or else everyone in the city is artist. The first step is to evacuate all the Institute so they can use the angelic core to flood the leylines with angelic energy. Since the Institute isn't built on any leylines, Magnus will need to use his magic to divert it the energy from the core to the leylines. But if something goes wrong, there is a risk of the Institute being blown up.

When Alec and Magnus try to put their plan into action, they struggle to complete it because one of the other Shadowhunters Raj has locked Magnus out of the system. This forces Alec to release the valve manually. The angelic energy is released and the ritual that Jonathan's mother was trying to perform is disrupted though her altar is unharmed. Alec and Magnus know that the threat that disrupted the leylines is still out there and needs to be stopped. Magnus says he hopes that Alec doesn't judge him for who his father is and Alec assures him that he still loves him.

Jace has another nightmare of killing Clary. He goes to meet with Isabel who asks for his help identifying a demon from footage of it possessing an innocent on the streets.

Some werewolves that disapprove of Simon dating Maia try to force him out of the boathouse where he's been living and are intent on killing him if he puts up a fight. When one of the wolves tries to attack him with a bat, a blast of energy shoots out of Simon and sends the wolf flying back. The mark the Seelie Queen gave Simon is shown to start glowing blue when this happens before returning to normal. Maia walks up in time to witness the entire incident.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S05E14 "The Devil Complex" Recap


Simmons is attacked by the manifestation of an astronaut, which forces Fitz to push even harder on his work to seal the rift. However, the biggest challenge for him is that he needs to find a way to compress the gravitonium. The next manifestation to emerge from the rift is Fitz's Framework alter ego, also known as The Doctor.

Back on the Zephyr, Coulson, May, and Agent Piper are able to orchestrate a plan in which they capture General Hale. She is interrogated and apologises for Yo-Yo losing her arms, admitting that this wasn't part of the plan.

When Fitz encounters his alter ego, The Doctor taunts him by nitpicking at his insecurities regarding being able to close the rift.

Through further questioning, it's revealed that General Hale was always prepared to be captured if it were ever to happen. She has explosives strapped to Creel that she is prepared to detonate if SHIELD doesn't follow her demands. Anton Ivanov arrives at the Zephyr and Coulson agrees to accompany them, though May doesn't trust the situation.

Simmons, Mack, and Yo-Yo must fight off an attack from one of the robots that Mack brought back from Principia.

Daisy is working on some maintenance due to the many technical malfunctions happening because of the rift. But she is knocked out by another robot and wakes to find The Doctor trying to operate on her, having restrained her too. He wants to remove the inhibitor that keeps her powers under control. Fitz bursts in and asks what The Doctor is doing. The Doctor replies that he is doing what needs to be done. Fitz argues with The Doctor and it's then that Simmons bursts in and finds Fitz trying to operate on Daisy. She realises that The Doctor was a projection of Fitz's inner turmoil about trying to close the rift. He had reprogrammed the robots in order to isolate Daisy so that her powers could be used to compress the gravitonium and seal the rift once and for all. Simmons is forced to stay out of the way by the reprogrammed robots while Fitz works, saying The Doctor knew that there were always risks. Daisy swears that she will never forgive Fitz for what he has done. Once the rift is closed, he surrenders himself to be disciplined for the measures he took.

Fitz and Simmons speak in private, with him admitting that the traces of The Doctor were always there after they left the Framework but it was only more recently that he began to see him. Simmons tries to claim that The Doctor wasn't him but Fitz is insistent that it was him doing all the evil of the Framework. He doesn't believe he deserves forgiveness for what he has done. It's unclear if Fitz and Simmons' relationship will survive, and Simmons is emotionally shaken by the recent events. Deke comforts her and takes the opportunity to reveal that he is her grandson.

Hale speaks to her mysterious benefactor, Qovas, who gifts her a vial of odium and reminds her that she has sworn allegiance to Hydra..

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs on Fridays on ABC at 9/8c.

Gotham S04E15 "The Sinking Ship, The Grand" Recap


As Riddler is working with Oswald again, he sets up a calculated plan to rescue Martin and bring him back to Oswald, who is working on his own part of the plan which will allow him to escape.

Sampson begins terrorizing the citizens of the Narrows in order to assure his power as the new leader.

Selina breaks into Bruce's home and asks for his help to steal back what she stole from the scientist with Ivy. She feels bad that he died since she didn't know Ivy was going to kill him. Bruce agrees to help her by getting some cash together so she can buy it back since stealing it back is proving too difficult.

When Sofia finds out Martin has ben taken she orders her men to hunt Oswald down and kill him. When her men show up to Arkham, Oswald is in the infirmary due to being punched by a guard but Harvey was visiting at the same time to ask him some questions. In the commotion, Oswald is able to escape from Arkham as Riddler drives the getaway vehicle.

Selina and Bruce go to buy back the stolen goods and are forced to fight off the buyers who want to rob them of the money instead of selling it back.

Riddler brings Oswald to Lee, who is taken aback to be interacting with Riddler instead of Ed. They want Lee to help them but instead, Riddler gets captures by Grundy who brings him back to the Sirens who in turn bring him to Sofia. Oswald runs into Jim and Harvey on the streets. They want to bring Oswald back in but he pushes them to let him go and take Sofia out. Jim also wants Sofia out of the way but he wants to do it in a lawful way. Oswald and Jim reluctantly agree to an impasse so they can each carry on their way once they exchange information but Harvey insists on taking him into custody. Sofia's men emerge, still intent on killing Oswald and having overheard Oswald telling them about an important associate. A shoot-out commences during which Oswald is able to escape once more, this time with the help of Lee.

Lee brings Oswald to Mr. Freeze so he can be frozen and brought to Sofia as a sort of ice version of a Trojan horse, a plan that Riddler had put together. Riddler was being tortured but when Freeze brings Oswald to her she pays him off and orders that Riddler be brought to the pier to be killed. Oswald heads to the pier to save Riddler. Riddler is shocked that Oswald gave up his opportunity for revenge and Oswald explains that he is the only one he can trust.

Sofia and her men arrive at the psychiatric hospital where they end up in a shoot-out with Jim and Harvey. Jim tells Harvey to get Penn, the man they were looking for, and take him to safety while he will fight off the shooters. Sofia corners Jim, who ends up shot repeatedly. She tells him to beg for his life and then they can start over. Lee arrives in time to save Jim and shoots Sofia in the head, which results in Sofia being in a coma. After this, Lee returns to the Narrows and regains her power which she punctuates by smashing Sampson's hand with a hammer similar to what was done to her.

Jim wakes in the hospital wanting to confess to his collusion with Sofia to the GCPD but Harvey forces him to live with the guilt instead. Meanwhile, Bruce and Selina have reconciled due to their recent misadventures, and Barbara's intense headaches are revealed to her being affected by Ra's al Ghul's powers.

Krypton S01E01 "Pilot" Recap


Superman, or Kal-El as he's known to Kryptonians, is yet to be born. It's 200 years before he's been born and the story of how the house of El almost ended is told. Seg-El is Superman's grandfather but at this story's beginning he is a mere child witnesses his grandfather, Val-El, being executed for treason. The ones to execute him are the corrupt regime leading the city of Kandor that don't approve of Val-El warning that they aren't alone in the universe and that their people are in danger. See and his parents are stripped of their privileges and banished to the lower class slums.

Fourteen years later, Seg is a misfit prone to getting into fights. He'll use it as a way to make money but possibly also as a means of lashing out over the discontent he feels about his life. His life is modest as he still lives with his parents, all bearing the weight of the shame that was inflicted on their family name.

Chief magistrate Daron-Vex, the same man who ordered the execution and exile of the Els, summons Seg to inform him that he is arranged for a marriage between Seg and his youngest daughter Nyssa. This will reinstate Seg to the upper classes. Secretly, Seg is involved in a relationship with a woman in the military, Lyta-Zod.

Adam Strange, a man from Earth in the future, tracks Seg down and gives him a Sunstone bearing the El symbol and warns him that someone else is coming from the future to try to destroy Krypton and prevent Seg's grandson from ever being born because he will be the greatest hero in the universe. He tells Seg to find the "fortress". Seg brings it to his parents and tells them what he was told. Meg's father takes the stone, saying it's too dangerous to carry it around in the public. Seg is upset when he finds out that his parents won't be able to come with him to the upper class but they insist that he must go and live a better life. Seg takes the stone back in secret. Secretly, Seg's parents discuss whether or not to tell him about a family secret and whether he is ready for it.

Seg is nearly caught by some guards while carrying the Sunstone but manages to run away with it. They continue to search for him until his mother rescues him using a mysterious spaceship she is flying. She brings him to the hidden Fortress of Solitude and shows him Val-El's research hidden within. Val had found an alien threat to Krypton but was killed to keep this secret. Seg's parents weren't able to get back into the Fortress but with this Sunstone being gifted to Seg, this is the first time they've been able to get back in. Charys, Seg's mother, warns him that they will be coming for them and to keep the Sunstone safe to be able to finish Val's work since it's all that matters now. She gives him a way to escape but closes off the way so that she will be arrested without Seg being able to stop her.

Charts is brought before the council and shouts out to the people that her father was right and they aren't alone in the universe. She refuses to acknowledge the existence of the Fortress or to say who was in the ship with her since the scanners picked up two bodies. Seg wants to turn himself in but his father, Ter, turns himself in instead. When Charys draws the weapons Ter had on his body, Jayna-Zod (Lyta's mother) shoots her dead.

Seg is devastated and breaks up with Lyta. He seeks refuge and solitude in the Fortress. Adam assures him that there is a brighter future for him and his offspring to come, but it is fading due to an threat known as Brainiac that moves from world to world devouring them whole and now it is meddling with the timeline in an effort to erase Superman. Adam shows him a cape belonging to Superman that has a strange glowing effect on it that gradually eats away at it. When the cape is gone, time will be up to save Superman and the universe itself.

Krypton airs on Wednesdays on Syfy at 10/9c.

Critically acclaimed Tobias Persson "MAN PÅ PROV" on Sweden tour this fall!




Comedian Tobias Persson and "Man på prov" was received with standing ovations and rave reviews during the spring tour.

Humor show "Man på pro" is a deeply personal story about the longing for children. "Man på prov" is anything but heavy and serious - after 17 years in country's humor scenes, with the prize "this year's male comedians' luggage, screenwriting, countless television and radio appearances Tobias has the ability to put a twist on the gravity without trivializing . Audiences are treated to liberating and at times black humor - everything from a father's perspective. 
"One of the samples are of the highest class. Persson delivers with such a natural that I ask myself what is rehearsed script and what is new for the evening. There is never anything unnatural in either tone or movement." - TeaterStockholm.se

Black Lightning S01E09 "The Book of Little Black Lies" Recap


Jefferson calls Inspector Henderson (as Black Lightning) to remind him that he was set up for the murder of Lady Eve and that there are corrupt officers in his department that are looking the other way on important matters. Henderson says he will use some vacation days to do some private investigations into which officers are corrupt. Henderson implores him to make sure his mother and family know that he isn't corrupt if he ends up dead and framed to appear as such. Black Lightning promises to not let that happen.

Anissa tells Jennifer that she isn't going crazy and reveals her own powers to her, saying that Jennifer has likely developed powers of her own. Jennifer doesn't believe what she is saying until Anissa uses her powers to lift Jennifer's entire bed off the floor. She goes on to say that their father is Black Lightning and Jennifer becomes terrified and upset that she has been lied to by her family for her whole life. Jefferson and Lynn are upset at Anissa for not consulting with them before telling Jennifer but what's done is done and they must find a way to move forward.

Jefferson and Anissa decide to start their own investigation into Green Light by following leads from Alvin's research. Anissa also learns during this time that she has her own fan page with people praising her for fighting back against corruption and the patriarchy. Meanwhile, Gambi is doing his own investigation into the electrical weapons created to frame Black Lightning for Lady Eve's death. Anissa secretly visits Gambi to make up her own mind about whether to sever ties with him the way Jefferson has. Gambi admits his wrongdoings and gifts her with a new superset he designed for her to be safer when engaging in super heroism. Now she can be Thunder. He apologises for keeping secrets and says he was only trying to keep his loved ones safe.

Jennifer is finally able to make peace with this revelation about herself and her family. After speaking with her mother she is better able to understand why they didn't tell her right away about the powers in her family and potentially in herself. However, she doesn't want to become a superhero herself, and is saddened by the loss of the relatively normal life she might've once had.

Jefferson and Anissa's investigation leads them to the drug lab where Green Light is being manufactured. They attack the lab as Black Lightning and Thunder, with Inspector Henderson helping since his investigation into corrupt cops had also lead him to lab. Henderson is able to make a few arrests before they blow up the lab. A.S.A. agents attack with weapons designed to disable Black Lightning's powers but Thunder saves him from their attacks.

When Jefferson returns home, Jennifer makes amends with him and they decide to watch a film together. Jefferson promises her that from now on, he will be honest with her.

Black Lightning airs on Tuesdays on the CW at 9/8c.

Shadowhunters S03E01 "On Infernal Ground" Recap


Clary goes through the ceremony to receive the rune of the Angel and become a fully fledged Shadowhunter. She is commended for stopping Valentine from using a wish from the Angel. What everyone except her and Jace don't know is that she used the Angel's wish to resurrect Jace after he was killed in battle. Alec is suspicious of what happened at Lake Lyn because he felt Jace die and his parabatai had disappeared when that happened. He is grateful that Jace is alive but still confronts Clary about the matter after her Shadowhunter ceremony. Jace warns Clary that no one can know what she has done to save him.

Luke's colleague Ollie has been pestering him to give her answers about the strange happenings she has encountered in the city. She has scratches on her arm that are scarred from an attack she experienced over four years ago. It was a wolf but the paramedics claimed it was a dog attack. She began researching and became convinced that was a werewolf. Luke is dismissive of her claims but she won't be swayed from her suspicions of the existence of werewolves.

Jonathan's newly resurrected mother goes to the hospital to look at the newborn babies. She meets a kind doctor whom she later attacks on the street in her demonic form and blows a toxic, supernatural substance into his mouth. When the doctor returns home he viciously slits the throat of his wife when she returns home from a business trip.

Alec is offered a promotion in the Shadowhunters ranking and tells Magnus about this. Alec is torn about whether to accept the job because it would mean moving to Idris where Magnus would be unable to visit him.

Clary gets to choose her signature weapon and decides on a pair of dual kindjals. Jace later has a nightmare of being intimate with Clary before Jonathan appears and tells Jace to stab Clary in the heart. Jace and Clary try to fight Jonathan off but she is stabbed in the struggle. He drops the knife by her body before walking off in the rain.

Simon visits the Seelie Queen at her request and orders her soldiers to hold him still so he can be branded with a make that fades a few seconds after it is placed on his forehead. The Seelie Queen tells him that only a Daylighter would be able to survive the ceremony.

Luke and Ollie are called in to investigate the murder of the doctor's wife. Luke immediately determines that there is something supernatural at play. He heads to meet with the Shadowhunters to get their help in investigating the case.

Raphael visits Magnus and asks for a powerful vampire tranquilizer to help him sleep. He has been struggling to do so ever since he found out his last living relative is dying.

Isabelle meets and flirts with a good-looking doctor named Charlie while she and Chase are at the hospital to investigate the recent murder. Clary is with Luke and tells her that the new weapons she has picked out belonged to her mother and father. Their conversation is interrupted by Ollie calling Luke to say that she's found the doctor wandering the streets. Luke warns her to not approach him but she goes after him anyway right before he's set to meet with his grandfather. The doctor whooshes away using a supernatural speed ability that has manifested since Jonathan's mother started performing a ritual on him. Ollie follows after him but when he starts to move towards her, the bullets she shoots do nothing to stop him.

Luke appears in his werewolf form to try to fight the doctor but he gets thrown away and knocked out before Ollie suffers the same fate. Clary attacks the doctor next but when she tries to use a rune on him, a winged creature bursts out of him and flies off. Clary tries to catch the creature and taunts it into attacking her. When it gets close enough she uses her angelic rune to kill the creature, causing Jonathan's mother to cry out in agony at feeling the loss of her creature.

Simon demands to know what the Seelie Queen has done to him and to be released to go home. She says he's free to leave and gives him an ominous warning that where he goes, darkness will follow even if he is in daylight.

Ollie is brought to the hospital to be tended to. She tells Luke that he was the wolf that saved her and he relents, admitting that everything she saw was real. He apologises for lying, saying that all the legends are true.

Simon meets with Maia and explains that he was missing because he was with the Seelie Queen. He says he had to do it because it was the only way that Maia would be able to leave the realm. He says he did what she wanted because he couldn't live knowing that Maia was in danger. Maia chastises him but is nonetheless grateful.

Alec confronts Magnus for not being forthcoming with his feelings, more specifically that he is upset about the idea of Alec leaving for Idris. Magnus apologises for not being better at communicating his feelings. Magnus admits that he doesn't want Alec to move to Idris. He doesn't want to control Alec's life but wants to be honest about how he feels. Alec assures him that he's not going anywhere.

Jace enjoys an inmate moment with Clary that is eerily similar to his earlier nightmare. He is shaken and asks Clary if he can just hold her.

Jonathan's mother sends one of her creatures to bring forth her other disciples.

Shadowhunters airs on Tuesdays on Freeform at 8/7c.
