I am confused on why suddenly Black's formula comes into picture, and why S_T^2 can be write in as that.

Would you please explain or point to some reference related?

the Black formula always applies when you have a call option on a lognormal quantity.

A square of a log-normal is also log-normal. So all we have to do is rewrite it as its mean

times a log-normal with mean 1 in order to fit it into the Black formula.
