In the sentence

In this lecture and in the ones to come...

is the second "in" necessary? Or is the sentence

In this lecture and the ones to come...




it's not necessary. There's nothing different enough in the two objects to require a different or repeated preposition. The only effective difference is a minor issue of pacing and focus, taking the two objects as a group together or separately.
