'Jessica Jones' Returns, Her Rage Especially Resonant In The #MeToo Era

I really can't imagine any other marvel show saying the word vagina, but I love that Jess did here, in a way that's completely natural to the characters and other women of a similar age. She lost her parents when she was young and was adopted into a family and becomes sisters with Trish Walker, a former child star, who now works as a radio host. When she beats him up for pushing her buttons, his need to establish his superiority becomes unpleasant. At the very least, it feels like the producers are trying to tease out about six hours worth of story over 13, counting on binge-happy viewers to stick with them.

Jessica won't think twice about a breakfast of Slim Jims and bourbon, and she's in and out of jail so often, she spends more time in handcuffs than Anastasia Steele. We learn that Jeri's diagnosis is ALS, and she comes up big with the emotional growth, ripping up the complaint she was going to file against Jessica. And in this scene, Jessica and her assistant Malcolm are visited by a man named Pryce Cheng played by Terry Chen.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Krysten Ritter spoke about the second season of Marvel's Jessica Jones and confirmed that David Tennant is back as Kilgrave. With a story that is heavy on unraveling the dealings of a shadow organization, there are a fair number of players onboard, including Jessica's best friend, Trish Walker, who dives deeper into the case, as well as the Hellcat persona that is lifted from the world of Marvel Comics. We see more of McTeer's unnamed character in action throughout the first five episodes, as she tears people and pianos limb from limb. She's recognizable on the street and the phrase "superhero vigilante" is bandied about like this is Daredevil Season 1 establishing Hell's Kitchen.

Basically, Jessica was having a hard time coping, and she wasn't hiding it. Meanwhile, Trish was traumatized by season one's events as well, and her dedication to investigative journalism is partly a response to feeling as if her life is out of control.

In Season 2 of Jessica Jones, IGH will be playing a bigger role it did in Season 1.

Of course, the Whizzer of the comics isn't the poor schmuck we see on the show, but he was definitely a speedster, and he did indeed have a fondness for yellow and blue, just like our fella here. Jessica Jones blows up that expectation. He has an offer, but she wants no part of it.

"Jessica and Trish's friendship is on a roller coaster", Taylor says. Her drinking has gotten worse, which is saying a lot, and she rejects any form of assistance or even empathy.

KRYSTEN RITTER: (As Jessica Jones) So what can I do for you that you can't already do for yourself? She tracked Jessica down and spent a day spying on her, watching her super-powered college-aged daughter from afar.

Jones' super strength sets her apart from the vast majority of comic book superwomen. You wouldn't want to get into a fist fight with her, but the more she reveals the cracks in Jessica's psyche, the more ballast she gives the series. And so Alisa agrees to stay at IGH, undergoing further treatments and experiments at the hands of Dr. Karl, who frequently drugs and restrains Alisa to deal with her violent mood swings.
