Throughout the SeriesEdit

Season 1Edit

In Black Jesus, she visited Tobias's loft. When she arrived, saw his piranhas eating a rat and said it was disgusting. Tobias greeted her with a hug. After they hugged, she asked him how are they going to kill Black Lightning.

Later on, Tori was watching the news report on Khalil's condition. She suggested to Tobias that they can manipulate the people in Freeland into killing Black Lightning by making the vigilante out to be the bad guy. Tori told Tobias that he could start by convincing Khalil that his paralysis was Black Lightning's fault.[1]

In And Then the Devil Brought the Plague: The Book of Green Light, Tori walked into the room where Tobias is and asked what was wrong. He told her about his visit with [[Peter Gambi|Gambi]. Angered, Tori said [[Lady Eve] would not be happy with Tobias actions. Tobias told her he's not scared of Lady Eve. However, Tori informed him that it's not about fear but strategy. She went on and explained how Tobias was being reckless. Tobias explained how he deserves a seat at the table with the higher ups, but he believed that they're using Black Lightning's return to stop the process. After he started to rant about his past, Tori calmed him down. She told him the reason he's making bad decisions lately is due to not dealing with his first problem-their father. She explained how Tobias hasn't forgiven himself for their father. Tori smiled and informed him on how she found where Eldridge lives. Tori comforted Tobias after he remembered a child hood memory of Eldridge. She told him that once they deal with Eldridge, Tobias will be a new man.

Later on, at Eldridge's place, she and Tobias confronted their father. She watched silently as Tobias and Eldridge argued with each other.[2]
