So far CW's Black Lightning has remained separate from the rest of the network's DCTV Universe, but in this week's episode, two major characters from other DC shows got a shoutout - namely Supergirl and Vixen.

In the episode, entitled "The Book of Little Black Lies," Jefferson Pierce's daughter Anissa and wife Lynn shared a conversation about secret identities, in which Lynn namedrops both Vixen and Supergirl - characters that exist in other CW shows, albeit in separate universes, with Supergirl anchoring her own show and Vixen appearing as a regular cast member of DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

While this doesn't necessarily confirm that Black Lightning is part of the CW-DC multiverse we know, it does seem like a good indicator that the next DCTV crossover might be a five-parter.

Black Lightning airs Tuesday nights on CW.
