Agent Odell: Mr. Pierce, you don’t want to make an enemy out of me.
Jefferson: That’s funny, Agent Odell. I was about to tell you the same thing.

Grace: Anissa, if we’re really trying to do this and we’re really trying to make this work, you have to trust me to let me in. I’m not a porcelain doll; I’m not going to break if you lean on me.
Anissa: Hey, hey, babe, I know that. And when I need to lean on you, I will. I’m just … I’m just still recovering from my run-in with Bruce Lee’s brother. That’s all.

Lynn: You look tired, Jeff. Long night?
Jefferson: Okay, so you heard?
Lynn: That Black Lightning nearly killed two ASAs commandos and then Zorro’d a lightning bolt onto the side of a building? Yeah Jeff, I heard. The whole downtown heard.

If you’re seeing this, it means I didn’t make it. And I’m okay with that. Really, I am. Because I know my sacrifice … it meant something.

Grace: Stay. I have a bad feeling.
Anissa: Hey, I am meta-fabulous! I’ll be fine. Okay? Come here.
[They kiss]
Anissa: Alright, you two have fun.
[Anissa leaves to get dressed]
Gambi: Say, do you wanna see some of Anissa’s baby pictures?
Grace: Yeah!

Lynn: This is the MB4 serum that made you the monster you are. Augmented strength, eternal youth, all here in this syringe that I’m about to plant into your body.
Tobias: Then why give it to me then?
Lynn: Because now you work for me, you miserable bastard!
[Lynn plunges the syringe into his arm]

They say that, “In every revolution, there is one man with a vision.” I thought that was Black Lightning. But after being here, I think the only way to save Freeland is if humans and Metas work together side-by-side to stop the ASA.

Painkiller: “Five-point Exploding Heart” technique. Take five steps and boom!
Officer: Are you serious?
Painkiller: [Laughs] No. No, I’m not serious. Downloaded Blackbelt Theater last night. I mean, what’s knowledge without a little culture. Am I right?
[The officer falls to his knees and chokes on the venom]
Painkiller: Oh? That’s right. My venom coursing through your veins right now must make it difficult for you to think.

I only saw to it that she got a taste of the most addictive substance on Earth.

Agent Odell

Sinzell: What you gonna do? Arrest me?
Painkiller: They don’t call me when they want someone arrested. They call me when they want someone gone.
[Painkiller poisons and kills Sinzell]

Anissa: Okay look, me, Reverend Holt, and a handful of other people, we started up our Underground Railroad. We’ve been sneaking Metas and suspected Metas outside the perimeter.
Jefferson: But, how did you get them…?
Anissa: With assistance from Uncle Gambi.
Jefferson: All these years of calling you “Harriet Tubman” were prophetic.
Anissa: Okay, Dad, stop, please.
Jefferson: No, I’m proud of you.
Anissa: Thank you.

Grace: Anissa, this would be a lot for anybody.
Anissa: Grace, I told you we’re in. Me, you, the leopard, that old guy … all of us. It’s one big party up in here. It is not your beautiful face or this fine-a** body that I’m in love with. Well, don’t get me wrong, if we’re taking votes, this one is by far my favorite. It’s not even about that. It’s you, Grace. Your heart, your soul, your essence. That is what I’m in love with. Just you.

Black Lightning Quotes

Lynn: You've been on the streets fighting The 100 for years. Let someone else do it. The girls need a father.
Jefferson: Baby, I promise. No more.

Black Lightning was the savior who kept our streets and our schools safe. He was hope personified. But he was also Jefferson Pierce, my father.
