Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 4: "The Book of Consequences: Chapter Four: Translucent Freak" Quotes
Deputy Chief Henderson: You forgot something, you translucent freak. You are not going to get away with this.

Anissa: Khalil?! Have you lost your damn mind? He killed Dad!
Jennifer: Anissa, he killed Black Lightning.
Anissa: Oh, so now you’re sticking up for him? When did he start texting you?!
Jennifer: Awhile ago, but I never hit him back, I swear. Not once, I swear!
Anissa: Yo, you’ve got to shut this down.
