The CW's Black Lightning returns this week with a mission: rescue Lynn (Christine Adams)… and as Jefferson (Cress Williams) so matter-of-factly puts in the promo below, by any means necessary. Unfortunately, one of the people standing in his way in "The Book of Markovia: Chapter Four" is actor/comedian Wayne Brady (Let's Make a Deal, The Masked Singer) joining the Arrowverse in the role of Tyson Spikes aka Gravedigger.
Brady's Spikes/Gravedigger is a World War II-era member of the U.S. military who became a "super soldier" after a secret experiment resulted in enhanced strength, agility, tactical brilliance, and hand-to-hand combat expertise. After the war, Spikes defected to the country of Markovia rather than return to a segregated America. His goal: to create a sovereign land for metahumans within Markovia – a goal that sets him on a collision course with the ASA and Team Lightning.
As for Jefferson's very direct threat – the one we mentioned earlier? You can check that out for yourselves in the promo below – followed by additional preview images from the episode.
