Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 16 Quotes

Agent Odell: I know exactly who ... and what ... you all are.
Lynn: You need to leave.
Agent Odell: There’s something you need to know. The Markovians have a stockpile of metahumans in pods; the largest on Earth.
Jefferson: You’ve been asked to leave ... nicely.
Agent Odell: Not yet, Mr. Pierce. Thanks to you, the Markovians have Dr. Jace. And here’s the best part, the concentration of metahumans in Freeland from the vaccines and the Green Light experiments make it the greatest threat to Markovia. It’s only a matter of time before they launch a lethal first strike. I’m swearing in Black Lightning, Thunder, and whatever you’re calling yourself, young lady.
[Jennifer inches closer behind Anissa]
Agent Odell: The Markovian war is coming. And Freeland ... *Free*land ... is ground zero.

Anissa: I kinda like Blackbird. She cool, right?
Jennifer: You’re such an overachiever. It’s not enough you’re in medical school, you gotta be two superheroes. Well, maybe just one now because of Dad’s code?
Anissa: Nah, Blackbird is needed. But I will start planning better and stop lone wolfing it.
Jennifer: You know, I could start coming with you?
