Black Lightning: The Book of Occupation: Chapter Three: Agent Odell's Pipe Dream

Love the new suit -- though it seems inevitable that Odell has some kind of failsafe built into it that will let him surveil/control Jefferson, considering all his other heinous ends-justify-the-means actions. Even if Gambi gets a crack at examining and reverse-engineering the watch, this seems like a real 'beware Greeks bearing gifts' moment. (But it looks so much better than the original suit, I'm hoping Thunder and Lightning get upgrades too.)

I wasn't really following the plot too well, as far as what Odell had Jennifer doing -- was that supposed to be Jefferson zooming past her, or a missile? Was it a data center that she blew up, or was it the same Markovian base that Jefferson broke the soldiers out of?

God, I did not care about the walking hairball that's an obvious new love interest for Jennifer. I freaking loved her "here's where bad things went down at this school" tour. Hahahahahah.

Even I felt bad for Tobias during suntan time.

Who programmed Khalil to be all Fun Facts About Murder? I expected the Vulcan mind pinch to be brought up while he was at it.

I still don't care about Grace but was mildly amused at "I don't care if you're a shapeshifter but ew, could you not be an Asian male right now?"

Hey, Mom and Dad, you're back! Now we're just gonna run off and leave!

I really liked the new costume for Jefferson. I hope it stays, but yeah it's definitely a Trojan horse.

I'm not entirely sure that was Jefferson flying past Jen. I'm sure he would've noticed her.

This was still a setup episode, with so much to be revealed. Like what was that house Painkiller attacked?
