    Jefferson continuing to do his Batman thing while talking to the detective- even down to disappearing off of a roof during a conversation. Liked his scene with Lynn when they discussed Anissa...and glad that he actually brought up the fact that hey, for so long she's wanted him to stop doing the hero thing, but now she's asking him to be a mentor to Anissa, potentially putting her on the same path as him.

    [blackout]LaLa[/blackout] is clearly a meta now right? Metahumans was name dropped in the last episode.

    I'm thinking it could be tied to mysticism, but either way, it's a pretty cool twist!

    Lot has happened in this episode.

    If Black Lightning acts like Batman toward the detective, you could get away that he has worked with Batman in the past provided if Batman exists in his universe.

    It was interesting seeing the dichotomy between them going back and fourt on the kid..

    BUT with the whole sub-plot of the reporter dying, the raid on mom's work and the linkage to 'grand-dad's info', i am really starting to think its all interlinked..

    I am thinking more mysticism. Maybe something tied to voodoo?

    And here I thought "Do you believe in the Resurrection?" was just something Whale said to mess with people.

    I'm just trying to figure out whether [blackout]Lawanda[/blackout] was [blackout]Lady Eve or Tobias' sister[/blackout]

    Who was the woman who brought that guy back to life and then turned into a tattoo?

    They killed off a few characters this week.

    Glad that BL and Thunder are going to be working together.

    Are they trying to frame BL for those murders?

    Tobias Whale has decent taste in music. He was listening to Coleman Hawkins.

    What the #### is going on?? I thought Lala was dead. I thought Lawanda was dead!

    This episode just upped the ante. Lady Eve is murdered. Gambi killed Joey after Lady Eve helped him out ... I can't keep up!

    Meanwhile Anissa is just.... wow!!

    Oh yeah, Tobias's sister dies too... its gonna get red hot in Freeland now!

    This show is getting better and better, and then I go to imdb and RT and the user/audience scores there are so low lol go figure.

    Really want Season 2 announced already. Hard to believe we're down to just 6 episodes.

    Catching up with this show now, really liking it.

    I recognized the twins that were with Lady Eve in the funeral parlor shootout. I don't know where I know them from though. I wish I could find their names.
