Black Lightning Promo: A Different Set of Rules

at .

Anissa is fighting for her independence on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 4.

The empowered metahuman wants to use her gifts to take from criminals and give back to the poor. Plus, she wants to enjoy the recognition that comes from being a superhero. This is a complete contrast to Jefferson's mentality.

The father/daughter duo have bickered over the appropriate way to handle the new responsibility and fame. Jefferson thinks Anissa is being reckless with her actions.

Unfortunately, arguments are far from over between these two family members.

Following rules is the topic of debate between Anissa and Jefferson Pierce.

Based on the promo below, both Black Lightning and Thunder have their own sets of rules when it comes to being a superhero. Both of them want to help people, but they're not following the same standards.

Anissa wants to make her own decisions and help out people in more meaningful ways. For instance, she took down a real estate criminal and gave the money to the church on Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 3.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg for how she wants to live life as Thunder.

Will these two ever see eye-to-eye?

Jennifer's therapy sessions seem to have improved! In the short time working with Perenna, she has come a long way.

There are a few quick clips of her harnessing her powers into a full solar ball. The energy only lasts a few seconds, but the spark is there. However, the real powers come much later on.

Who is she blasting out of the window? Is that Khalil after he darted Lynn?

Regardless of the target, the attack looked very effective! Jennifer is taking charge of her abilities and putting it to good use.

We could be seeing the birth of Lightning before our eyes.

Elsewhere in the promo, Tobias makes his grand declaration: he's going to burn down Freeland and everyone in it to find "him." Is the "him" he's referring to Black Lightning?

Sparks are going to fly.

Black Lightning Season 2 Episode 4 Quotes

Deputy Chief Henderson: You forgot something, you translucent freak. You are not going to get away with this.
Tobias: Deputy Chief Henderson. “Translucent.” It’s a very interesting choice of words. It means you can see right through me. And if you can see right through me, then you know what I’m thinking.
[Henderson leaves the room frustratingly]
Deputy Chief Henderson: He orchestrated this whole thing. He killed his former lieutenant, he got rid of our DNA evidence, and he got himself arrested knowing that we would have to let him go. All while rehabilitating his reputation with one stroke.
Montez: Well, the judge would call that a theory. I need hard evidence of something ... murder, obstruction, conspiracy to commit obstruction. Without that, we’re going to have to let him walk. You have about 48 hours if that.
[She walks away from him]
Deputy Chief Henderson: As always, Ms. Montez, you’re a regular ray of sunshine.

Anissa: Aren’t we supposed to be helping people?
Jefferson: We are helping people! But unlike criminals, we have rules that we need to follow.
Anissa: Rules made by whom?
Jefferson: Rules made by me.
Anissa: Guess what, I have a different set of rules because I’m not going to watch my people get taken advantage of.
Jefferson: They are not your people, Anissa! And as long as you are under my roof, you will follow my rules!
