Added DiffLines:

* ProducePelting: Two-Bits throws a tomato at Henderson after the latter publically announces Blackbird is now wanted by the police. Henderson later uses this as a reason to arrest Two-Bits, even presenting him the tomato as evidence.

Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Downplayed. Lynn appears to have a very minor moment of this when it dawns on her that she basically just told Odell she wanted him to kill Tobias. Maybe mixed with FaceHeelTurn, depending on how this plot line plays out.


* HeroWithBadPublicity: Henderson has to give out a bounty on Blackbird, much to the dismay of Freeland's population. However, he later reveals himself to be planning the resistance.

Added DiffLines:

* HesBack: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] with Tobias. He ''does'' get restored to his appearance from the first two seasons and presumably gets his other abilities like SuperStrength back as well, but he's still in ASA custody and Lynn has indicated to Odell that she wants him killed.

Added DiffLines:

* FailedASpotCheck: Anissa apparently fails to notice that her assailant is a mysteriously resurrected Khalil. Then again, it is dark out and he is [[ClarkKenting wearing sunglasses at the time]].

Added DiffLines:

* SpoilerTitle: The episode is called "Requiem for Tavon". Guess what happens by the end?


* BaitAndSwitch: Henderson appears to be falling back into his old ways, arresting Two-Bits and Reverend Holt for resisting the ASA......then it turns out that he himself is part of a resistance and he wants them all to join forces.
* CurbStompBattle: Khalil easily dispatched the two ASA operatives sparring with him at the beginning. He even would've killed one of them via a poisonous PressurePoint attack, had Odell not stepped in.

* DroppedABridgeOnHim: Poor Tavon gets poisoned trying to defend Anissa from Khalil and dies shortly afterwards.
* EurekaMoment: Lynn has one in her dreams, coming to the conclusion that a certain protein is the key to stabilze the meta gene. Said protein can only be extracted from Tobias Whale, as he is the only one who survived taking the serum creating it, the same serum giving him his abilities.
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Henderson has to give out a bounty on Blackbird, much to the dismay of Freeland's population. However, he later reveals himself to be planning the resistance.
* HannibalLecture: Tobias gives Lynn one, while [[AbhorrentAdmirer admiring her work and making inappropriate remarks towards her]], as well as deducing [[SpottingTheThread that her husband is Black Lightning]]. While she is initially unnerved by it, she later [[ShutUpHannibal tells him to shut up and painfully injects him]].
* InternalReveal: Odell finds out that Anissa is Blackbird. Or at least he does and then gets later (seemingly) fooled by Grace posing as Anissa while Blackbird is in the field.
* KickTheDog: After a display of civil disobedience from the students and Jefferson, a bunch of ASA operatives [[NoHoldsBarredbeatdown beat the latter senseless]].
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Odell allows Jennifer to confront the abusive ASA operatives who brutalized her dad. While we [[OffScreenMomentOfAwesome don't see it]], one can only imagine what she did to them.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Jefferson insisting that Anissa brings Tavon back to his parents from the safezone gets the boy killed.
* PowerIncontinence: Jennifer has a huge one after the sleepless night, frying every computer in her classroom.
* TheReveal: Brandon turns out to be a meta too.
* RippedFromTheHeadlines: Tavon was apparently "swatted" (the term is directly used by his dad), as he has no metagene.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Lynn demands that Odell deals with Tobias (who got restored to full strength) after they no longer need him for the protein extraction.
