'Jessica Jones' Season 2 Premiere: When And How To Watch On Netflix

Netflix Netflix

We start, as you no doubt guessed, with a pizza delivery guy, as Jessica's voiceover notes that you can get anything delivered in New York City - or anyone. As and when the action does arrive, it is always with a goal to show the inherent weakness of Jessica's resolve and emotions, juxtaposed with her strength, shown through a gaping hole in a wall, in a auto or in someone's face.

The star portrays the titular action hero in Marvel's Netflix series and the brawls she was involved in were so intense, she picked up a collection of bumps, bruises and wounds, and at one point risked becoming mute. "She has an affinity for [her assistant] Malcolm (Eka Darkville)". That does not add up, along with the hints at "IGH" and a Dr. Kozlov. She realizes her rage pushes people away and you do see her working on it, with great unease. Obviously, that failed, so Pryce wants to sue Jessica and put her out of business. We see a side of Jones we rarely see as Jessica talks about how hard she's been trying to forget waking up alone after her family died, though she does ask to keep the box. She literally brings her a Bankers Box with the Jones family's ashes in them, which she'd been keeping in a storage unit for the past 17 years. So, if she and "Whizzer" were both worked on there, where's the other person that was teased?

The new season of Jessica Jones moves things along further, even giving reasons for Malcolm and Trish to interact without Jessica in the picture.

What are the episode titles for Jessica Jones season two?

Like the crumbling apartment around her, Jessica can not face the actual process of healing. "On one hand, she's gotten rid of a bad guy, but on the other hand she's become what he wanted her to become so she's very deep in doubt about who she is".

But that doesn't seem to be the end of the story. Jessica's ability to help Trish deal with her mother is one example. I have had only two little peeks at the character and while he/she maybe nothing like David Tennant's Kilgrave, one of the two scenes made me feel the same nervousness as Wilson Fisk once got out of me.

Hey, whoever had "Jessica gets arrested in episode 1" in your pool, you win! Oscar is a talented artist and a doting father to a young son called Vido. It seemed devastating, given her reaction. It also means she falls back on her favorite tactics to avoid those issues. Hellcat not only kicks some serious butt in the comics, but she also has psychic powers - something the syringe wielding figure in episode six's cover might allude to.

Just being in the IGH building gives Jessica flashbacks to her hospitalization: strapped to a gurney, screaming in pain, fighting off some inhuman-looking beast. "Me, Whizzer ... and something else". Of course this 20-day period is when Jessica got her superpowers, and of course some nefarious shit was going down then (and presumably still is), and of course Jessica is going to try to find out who did this to her and what they're after now.

David Tennant's Kilgrave was the main villain in season oneIs David Tennant's Kilgrave returning?

Believe it or not, "Whizzer" is actually a comic book character. It's also an unapologetically feminist series, in front of the cameras and behind them: every director this season is a woman, its creator and showrunner is a woman, as are most of the writers and lead characters.

It's pretty obvious that season 2 is going to delve more deeply into Jessica's origin, which is fine because it fills in the blanks left by season 1, which didn't need to tell that story. But, when she leaves Jessica's apartment, there's a man with a hoodie on that's watching, presumably Will Simpson, the psychotic man that nearly killed Jessica and Trish in season 1.
