    The preview for next week's episode makes it clear that, while it is not officially a part of the crossover, it is heavily tied into the events of "Crisis on Infinite Earths":

    Yes, that preview as seen on Monday night show direct impact of Crisis on Black Lightning. It may show why/how he appears in some of the crossover episodes.

    I am. It tends to be the last show I watch on Mondays, though, so afterward I don't have any oomph left to discuss it.

    It seems like "Crisis" will have a pretty big impact on the back half of the season. Is the ASA even going to exist on whatever Earth comes out the other side?

    I think the main impact of Crisis on it will be the insights into the ASA that Jennifer had from seeing her Earth-1 and Earth-2 counterparts.

    I've no idea how things will come back together when Crisis is resolved. The Black Lightning show may still be on its (currently) unidentified Earth. As opposed to the comics which had announced that everything would resolve into one Earth, we don't have such a mandate here.

    Unless there is a reset,
    Jefferson has no earth to return to. Jennifer is stuck between worlds I think.

    The midseason premiere confirmed that Jefferson and Jennifer are the only two who remember the original Earth-1 chronology.

    However, other than Freeland being on the same Earth as the Vancouver-shot shows now, there weren't any major changes revealed yet like there were on "Batwoman" and "Supergirl".

    At least not yet. I wonder if there will be some subtle changes reflecting that other heroes exist.

    The rescue mission in Markovia definitely delivered the goods in last Monday's episode.

    It would be fun to see some more connections between "Black Lightning" and the other Arrowverse shows now that they take place on the same Earth. Given that this show shoots in Atlanta and the other shows shoot in Vancouver, crossing over series regulars feels tricky. But you could have some of the recurring characters make the leap: Have Agent O'Dell pop up on "Batwoman" since he lives in Gotham, for instance. Or have Erika help out Team Flash.
