Today, I want to highlight one of my fav relationships on TV right now, and that would be Anissa and Grace (a.k.a. ThunderGrace). Representation truly matters people, and Black Lightning has done an amazing job in doing so. We have a main female character who is Black, dating an Asian female, making a truly magical couple. From their ups, to their downs, Anissa and Grace have always stayed true to each other. Their connection is fire and unbreakable, which brought them back together (even after a breakup). Here’s hoping Anissa and Grace can continue being happy and that we get to see their relationship blossom even further!
Here are our top 3 moments of Anissa and Grace (so far):
#1 Grace agreeing to come back to Freeland to be with Anissa (Season 3, Episode 11)
It was a long awaited reunion, but FINALLY our wishes came true and Grace and Anissa got back together! While Anissa was with the Perdi, she reconnected with Grace, giving us some ThunderGrace screen-time. Grace explained to Anissa that she has got a grip on her powers and can control her shifting now. Since she was all good and well, Grace decided that she wanted to return to Freeland with Anissa. Yes to that!
#2 Jefferson discovering that Grace knows the family secret (Season 3, Episode 4)
Jefferson turned up at Anissa’s apartment and initially flips out when he discovered that Grace was there. Anissa was dressed up in her Blackbird gear, meaning that Grace of course knew all. Jefferson couldn’t get over why Anissa would tell Grace. After all, what will happen if they break up? Grace would then become a threat to them and cause further issues down the line. But no, oh no, Anissa was having none of it! Anissa fought back and was adamant that would never happen and that she trusts and loves Grace. Their love is so strong that Anissa trusted Grace with the biggest secret she has.
#3 Anissa and Grace hot and steamy reunion (Season 2, Episode 5)
Grace and Anissa rekindled their flame and got back together after a break. Anissa had some moves that I don’t think many could turn down, so I’m not shocked over them hooking up. Who wouldn’t? Although, it wasn’t all happiness, because the next morning Grace admitted that it was a mistake and they shouldn’t get back together again. This was during Anissa’s player days, before she wanted to settle down. Despite it not all going perfectly at this moment, it was still a super hot reunion and a memorable moment in ThunderGrace’s love story!
I know I’m not the only one who’s a major fan of Anissa and Grace being together. Here are some fans sharing some #ThunderGrace love (let’s keep up the appreciation of these two):
This is what a POWER COUPLE Looks like!! 😍😍😍😍
