Jessica Jones Recap: Trish Walker is a Superhero

‘Jessica Jones’ Recap: “AKA The Sandwich Saved Me” & “AKA You’re a Winner”

Jessica Jones‘ fifth episode, "AKA The Sandwich Saved Me," begins with Jessica in an office job, generally not working and being, rightfully, harassed by her boss. After revealing that she knows about his "extracurricular activities" with the company’s bank account, Jessica is let go with a six month severance package and a snide comment from her boss about how proud her parents must be of her, which of course sets her off and has her knocking a few cabinets over. While you can certainly notice the difference between Jessica pre- and post-Kilgrave, it’s great to be given a first-hand view of who she was prior to being damaged beyond repair. Granted, Jessica is still a sarcastic wanderer, attempting to find her way in the world, but she’s hardly broken in the way we see her in the present. In the past, after a lunch meeting with Trish, the seed is planted that perhaps the best route for Jessica may be to become a superhero, so as not to let her super strength go to waste. READ MORE...

‘Jessica Jones’ Recap: “AKA It’s Called Whiskey” & “AKA 99 Friends”

With the stunning revelation at the end of episode two of Jessica Jones that Luke Cage does in fact have his patented unbreakable skin, Jessica and Luke get down to business of…getting to know each other a little better. There’s a nice quality in this scene with the two superpowered protagonists sleeping together in that they’ve not only found someone who may connect with them emotionally, but also someone who has experienced the same trials and tribulations when it comes to having special abilities. One of the strongest aspects of their relationship is that Jessica usually appears to be the one in full control, splitting the scene when she becomes freaked out after seeing a picture of Luke’s deceased wife for example. The danger of having another big Marvel player as a supporting character is that Luke would overshadow Jessica whenever the two were on the screen, but regardless of his stature, Krysten Ritter holds her own and it’s a testament to her strengths as an actor in bringing Jessica to the screen that allow her to do so.

Jessica Jones Recap: Evil Is As Evil Does

  From the very first episode, Jessica Jones has made clear that Kilgrave is evil and must be stopped. (Even the quasi-sympathetic "child abandonment" card Kilgrave tried to play last episode was yanked away.) As "AKA 1,000 Cuts" shows, though, Kilgrave isn't the only one capable of terrible things.   Unable to find Kilgrave, Jessica heads back to the facility and finds Trish uselessly tapping a bullet against the side of her skull. She's trying to follow Kilgrave's command to put "a bullet" in her "head." Jessica, wise to Kilgrave's tricks, tells Trish to put the bullet in her mouth. She calmly explains that the bullet is now in her "head," which breaks Kilgrave's spell. Clemons reappears with a bloody hand, then Jessica tells them that Kilgrave couldn't control her. She's immune to his powers.   Read More... //www.vulture.com/2015/12/marvels-jessica-jones-recap-season-1-episode-10.html

Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 8 Review: “AKA WWJD?”

"AKA WWJD?" is like a mash-up of Homeland‘s "The Weekend" and the psychedelic trips shows like The Sopranos and BoJack Horseman have taken in the past, filling in the gaps of Jessica’s past, while giving voice to the motivations behind the monster that is Kilgrave. However, it’s neither as romantic or reflective as those aforementioned entries, an hour that pushes Jessica to finally confront her attacker in the Jessica Jones‘ best entry so far. Removed from the normal rhythms of New York, "AKA WWJD?" isolates Jessica and Kilgrave from the rest of the show’s major players in the suburbs, giving the series plenty of room to breathe and explore their characters. Going back to Jessica’s childhood home serves two distinct purposes: depicting just how insane Kilgrave is, and giving voice to Jessica’s biggest emotional scar, the car accident that killed her entire family (and in the comic books, gave her powers), the first time in her life she felt she did something horribly irredeemable. As she fights to forgive herself for what she did to her family, and what Kilgrave forced her to do to Reva, Jessica does exactly what a true hero would do: she tries to help Kilgrave, to turn his lame excuses of a terrible childhood (in his defense, those experiments did look pretty unpleasant) into the prologue of the story of a man who changed the world.

Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 7 Review: “AKA Top Shelf Perverts”

For six episodes, Jessica Jones has watched its titular character struggle to find her identity again, rebuilding her life in the aftermath of Kilgrave’s influence over her. "AKA You’re a Winner" finally brought to light what that inner turmoil really was: guilt over killing Luke’s wife, leading Jessica down a road of self-loathing and punishment that led to the explosive scene between her, Luke, and one very unfortunate city bus. That scene, where Luke voices the very thing Jessica fears the most about herself, finally felt like Jessica Jones digging into the heart of its story, and as a result, "AKA Top Shelf Perverts" is free from the constraints of previous episodes, able to push the overarching plot forward while finally digging its nails into the existential crisis Jessica is facing.
