I’ll cut the mushy feelings for now and save the rest for next week — when we will come back together for the BLACK LIGHTNING SEASON FINALE!!!!
In the middle of superhero spy conspiracy theories, Thunder punches and Lightning bolts, Black Lightning puts forth an important episode about police corruption in black communities.
We are three episodes away from the finale. Everything’s getting bleak for Anissa Pierce.
Thunder’s theme song isn’t about her. It’s about us. It’s about a community of black women, about our magic. It’s about the lives we have lost. Our pain.
Our favorite lesbian superhero goes on an adventure with her dear old dad.
“Anissa has real game! She lowers her voice an octave, bites her lip even though no one can see it, and tells Grace how much she misses her. It’s sexy. So sexy. If Grace doesn’t call back by morning I am going to jump in my television ask Anissa out myself levels of sexy.”
Of all the ways that the Pierce’s mutual secret-identity reveal was going to come about, I definitely never expected a raw knuckle superhero fight.
Anissa learns about her family history and finally suits up as Thunder for the first time! Jennifer learns to never cross lesbian moms. And I made you all a homemade Valentine! You don’t want to miss it.
The black lesbian superhero saved her bisexual Asian-American girlfriend. It’s the fantastical fairy tale I would have never felt brave enough to dream for myself. Not as a child, and as much as I hate to admit it out loud, not even now, as an adult. Still, here it is.
Meet Grace Choi. She loves comic books, one day she will love Anissa Pierce, and she’s ready to light our hearts afire.
This is brave and historic. But it’s played intimate and vulnerable and small and more than anything, normal. Just two people sharing together. Like we have seen straight people do a thousand times.
She’s ready to win over my heart, and I am very ready to let her.
We’ve got Lena Waithe’s “The Chi,” a lesbian assassin in a parallel universe in “Counterpart,” budding superhero Anissa Pierce and her girlfriend badass bisexual bartender Grace Choi, Anna Paquin on a virtual reality holiday gifted by her wife and so many other lesbian and bisexual characters on now or coming soon to a teevee or otherwise-identified device near you.
