Gambi's (James Remar) got a secret on Black Lightning, and it's going to be a game changer.

When Gambi spotted Tobias Whale (Marvin "Krondon" Jones III) at the protest that turned violent, he mysteriously decided to hide that information from Jefferson (Cress Williams). Tonight's episode won't explain the full scope of their connection, but it definitely gives the audience a substantial enough peek at it to make us side-eye Gambi pretty hard.

"As the story develops, [Gambi's] character is the most complex," Jones told TV Guide when asked about the connection between Gambi and Whale. "His backstory is deep and it has a lot of layers to it. Very unpredictable."

If you're hoping for all the answers though, you'll be waiting a while. Remar teased that Gambi wouldn't reveal his "long-hidden secret" that would put all the cards on the table until Episode 8.

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

(Full Disclosure: TV Guide is owned by CBS, The CW's parent company.)
