A quarantine might prevent people from getting in or out, but it wouldn't justify no communication at all. There is no logical reason that people in Freeland can't make a phone call, or people outside of Freeland can't call in. Such a mess would create a major outcry from relatives and certainly get the attention of the media. And they are talking about SARS, which is like 99 percent curable. The more the security would be, the more pushback. So basically, it was a lucky shot or Anissa's hubris which caused the vulnerability. Anissa's powers are really weird with that hold the breath and make a goofy noise trigger. That is a different issue, but a very good contrast as to the writers. I don't think Black Lightning goes far enough to establish Jefferson as a hero in this show -- a weakness we seem to see in Supergirl, but this week, Jefferson stepped up, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens in the COIE. We might see Jefferson's finest hour. I wouldn't necessarily kill anyone important. I might not even kill anyone. But what I would do is take a long look at the universe, and see any criticisms to address and changes to make. I would take the opportunity to allow for changes in continuity, and maybe combine a few Earths. I'd use it to do even subtle things like give Superman his red shorts back. That's a minor change I really want to see in Superman and Lois, and it's not hard to do. The COIE is the chance to redeem Lena because it's a chance to rewrite history. Let's get Superman and Kara on Earth 1. But KEEP the multiverse. They are messing with some classic TV shows, and they all should survive. Plus, the multiverse allows for sick crossovers that don't even involve Arrowverse shows. Imagine a legit Smallville crossover with Superman and Lois, free from the COIE--smaller, with enough to do for Welling to be an equal. Arrow is ending. Have Diggle come out of the COIE with the John Stewart name and give him his power ring. He could even reprise the role on the new series. Do enough to keep the shows going, but make some changes that are felt.
