Kilgrave is still haunting Jessica and affecting her everyday actions. While it was completely reasonable of him to dislike Jessica calling Trish in the middle of the night, the way he expressed it smacks of manipulation, and a desire to make the pair a little less codependent. How can Jessica have those three lives on her conscience and still insist she's not a killer?

When it comes to shows that changed the game in the overstuffed superhero genre, few come to mind, and one stands head and shoulders above the rest: Marvel's Jessica Jones. Iron Fist didn't even get off the ground, really, but with a shorter runtime it might've fared better.

This episode makes particularly great use of Malcolm, as he helps both Jessica and Trish in a way that no other character could.

The second season of Jessica Jones sees the return of Krysten Ritter as the hard-drinking super-powered private eye, along with Rachael Taylor (Trish Walker), Carrie-Anne Moss (Jeri Hogarth), Eka Darville (Malcolm Ducasse), David Tennant (Kilgrave) and new cast members Janet McTeer and J.R. Ramirez. But then again, maybe these particular heroes work better with their own solo shows. "I never take no for an answer", a new male protagonist tells her. Jessica finds her purse on the movie lot, along with a trail of blood that leads to a nearby sound stage.

As disappointing as it is to know a second season isn't now in the works, it doesn't mean it would never happen. "The beauty of the Marvel world is never say die", she says. She gets lunch with her mother and sits through her drooling over Griffin, because she needs current contact info for "Max", a director she worked with in her youth. She's recognizable on the street and the phrase "superhero vigilante" is bandied about like this is Daredevil Season 1 establishing Hell's Kitchen.

But Trish is not the only person who matters to Jessica. Between helping him get clean and facing what Kilgrave did to him, the two have more in common than she will admit out loud. His career is still going strong while Trish was chewed up and spat out by the industry, and when she confronts him, he isn't even scared.

And like many facing a long recovery, Jessica still defaults to old patterns and tries to push these two away despite their stated commitment to her.

According to Comicbook, the mysterious organization has someone who can match Jessica's strength and powers. The two don't hit it off immediately and Jessica begins to gather dirt on him, but before she can, he sends her all of his information, letting her know he's an open book.

Jessica Jones Season 2 is now streaming. Understandably, Jessica suffers from PTSD and depression after an event like this. That only leaves one vital question: With all of these pieces firmly in place behind the scenes, where the hell does that leave Jessica for the second season? "How far is she prepared to go to matter in a meaningful way?" Sure, she has the powers, but the mental bandwidth required to face the pressures of being a superhero does not come as easy.

As episode 7, "AKA I Want Your Cray Cray" reveals, Alisa Jones survived the tragic vehicle crash that killed Jessica's father and brother, only she was injured much, much, worse than Jessica, requiring five whole years of IGH treatments to fix the significant burns to her body.

Are you disappointed in the news that The Defenders might not re-team?
