No whammy, no whammy, no whammy...

I really liked the news commentary peppered throughout the episode. "Why is it when they get someone in a costume, they're a superhero, yes when we get one, they're a vigilante?" was pretty good.

poo poo got pretty intense with both police encounters too, and I wasn't expecting someone to ever be used as a human shield on a CW show (well, outside of that middle east combat zone show).

I just love how physically imposing he is. When BL was walking down the hallway in Lala's penthouse, his shoulders were drat near touching both walls. Dude's built like a brick shithouse.

I love the actor they got to play the reverend. I recognized him right away as the dude who played Chauncy in Menace II Society, and for his more iconic role, Pinky from Next Friday.

Pretty sure the girl playing Tobias' sister is one of the girls in Omar's stick-up crew in the Wire, and the dude helping the daughter solve her grandpa's murder mystery is Huggy Bear.

The guy playing Lala is so loving good, I'm really glad they brought him back. The talent on this show is stacked like crazy.

Their music selection's on point too. Never thought I'd hear a Kevin Gates track on a DC CW show.

Seeing James Remar in fatherly roles is kinda weird for me because I've always only ever thought of him as Ajax from The Warriors.

An episode or two back, was it my imagination, or did Anissa/Thunder take a bullet to the head and it ricocheted off? That'd be a trip if Black Lightning's daughters are bullet proof, but he isn't.
