And despite being then with blasting powers, Jefferson continues to take fire on all sides.

Though things are a little better with Anissa.

Lynn makes a stupid choice that will probably come back to bite us all.

Very intrigued to see where they are going with Khalil.

As for the ASA, honestly, at this point, kill them all. I'm past any kind of sympathy for even the lowest level mooks. The show goes out of its way to portray them as fascists to the bone. Hell, I think Freeland would be better off with the Markovians at this point.

And Grace....sorry, but I just can't get into her character. She just doesn't contribute anything meaningfull at ALL.

If there's something this show has made clear is that what is worse than local racists are military racists.

Also Odell is confirmed not dead but out commission, this new major though could lead to worse attacks in Freeland due to her ignorance of diplomacy to anyone. If she followed through on that threat to have an air strike on Freeland than that would certainly escalate the situation to where the state or national government would have to get involved due to a whole town being wiped off the map by American armed forces. Odell knew that even if the people of Freeland would get hurt they would live and how to keep the Markovian attacks inside a specific area to avoid a national war.

[up][up] Yeah, the ASA has been far more dangerous than the Markovians at this point. I was expecting there to be an uneasy alliance between them and the Pierce family from the season 2 finale, but they've been outright villains since the premiere.

Also, yeah, Grace has not been doing anything for me. She barely resembles her comic book self. She feels like an OC with a comic book name, much like their take on Looker.

I don't like anyone in this fight anymore, everyone except Gambi's an asshole who tries to justify doing asshole things. I guess it's okay that the Anti-Monitor is going to eat them in a couple of weeks.

Helping murderous cops while chewing out the resistance isn't exactly saintly.

He wasn't helping the cops, he was trying to de-escalate conflict before it got worse. The only reason he even defused the bomb Henderson and Holt planted was because he didn't know they were the ones who planted it. At worst, Jefferson is just making understandable mistakes while dealing with a crappy situation.

Also, I love how Henderson gets all huffy about it and tried to recruit Jefferson when he didn't even tell him about the bomb.

Thanks to the ASA's attempt at making Markovians bad despite doing more harm than good in the community, everyone who was a hero has to do bad things and break moral codes. Freeland never had pure goody-twoshoes heroes, just Black Lightning and the police who all struggled with issues then and now. Black Lightning the show always shows the moral grey of it's characters but luckily we are not at the point of Gray and Gray Morality.

Speaking of which, the promo indiccates it has come for Freeland at last!
