Black Lightning: We ain’t leaving.
Commander Williams: Fine. Then just die!
[They shoot electricity at each other]
Commander: Williams: You don’t want to dance with me. I have your powers and the finest tactical training on earth.
Black Lightning: Yeah, right. The thing is you have a lot of electricity coursing through your nervous system right now. I’ve got this suit to protect me. You don’t, Meta!
Commander Williams: I see your point.
[Commander Williams collapses]

I think Thunder would go better with Black Lightning. Don’t you?

Gambi

Brandon: I’ve been looking for Dr. Jace ever since.
Jennifer: And now you’ve come to Freeland to kill her?
Brandon: Probably sound like a terrible person, huh?
Jennifer: No, actually, I get it.
Brandon: You do?
Jennifer: Yeah, look, when Khalil was murdered, all I could think about was revenge. I wanted to kill the person who did that to him; make them suffer the way he suffered. And to be honest, I still do.

Tobias: Don’t be naïve, Dr. Stewart. You know exactly what the ASA is gonna do with those Metas once you’ve stabilized them. Just look at the roster you gave me: super strength, accelerated healing, and my favorite, camouflage. Seem like weapons to me.
Lynn: I’ve heard it all before.
Tobias: Oh, really? From whom? Wait … you don’t mean Black Lightning? How interesting. Guess he is smarter than I thought.

Gambi: That thing killed Khalil’s mother. You need to shut this monster down before the ASA uses it to slaughter anyone else.
Lynn: He’s not a monster! Don’t him a “Monster” or an “It” or a “Thing” or any other word that isn’t Khalil. I lost 14 kids, Gambi. Fourteen people died because of me. And I won’t lose another person ever again. I’ll save Khalil if it’s the last thing I do.

Jefferson: I cannot get down with your methods.
Deputy Chief Henderson: Duly noted for the record. I’m only trying to do what I can to protect this city.
Jefferson: Yeah? By living a double life? Chief of police and Big Brother resistance. Now, you remember how pissed off you were when I didn’t tell you I was Black Lightning. Who’s got the secret now?
Henderson: Are you seriously trying to compare me keeping a secret for 30 days to you keeping a secret for 30 years?!
Jefferson: No! Look, the point is we gotta get on the same page!
Henderson: And by “same page,” you mean doing them the way you would do them?

Jennifer: Is he dead?
Major Grey: Far from it. He’s in the hospital and expected to make a full recovery.
Jennifer: Getting shot at his age, he needs to go ahead and retire. Start that rideshare business like I told him.

Why is my life always so messed up? Medicine isn’t working anymore. So, I’m shapeshifting left and right. I thought getting my feelings out in this video would help me stabilize, but I’m so scared.

Grace

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.

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.
