Like the crumbling apartment around her, Jessica can not face the actual process of healing.
MY SAY Jessica snapped the neck of Kilgrave (David Tennant) like a bean sprout in the season 1 finale, but by the second season launch that emphatic bit of justice has become just one more log tossed on her bonfire of guilt, rage, repression and regret.
"I love the way Melissa [Rosenberg] makes reference to the source material and then puts her own inventive twist on things".
Of all the shows in the Defenders-verse, Jessica Jones has the advantage of its eponymous protagonist. That question looms over "Jessica Jones" and its heroine, and the search for an answer is its most distinct pleasure. It opened on an abrasive alcoholic and her deeply ingrained trauma, on a double homicide of parents by their daughter, and Marvel's most fearsome small screen villain, if not an all-time contender.
It's been a long time since the first season of Jessica Jones. When Malcolm asks if it's illegal, Jeri says that's entirely up to them, so she obviously only cares about the end result, not the means.
Trish continues to show her resourcefulness, this time using her radio show to send up a signal flare to a former IGH employee, whose scull she and Jessica may or may not have found later on.
It also means she gets to enjoy things from time to time without the specter of denial hanging over her. Jessica's ability to help Trish deal with her mother is one example. As she recovers from her ordeal with Kilgrave, she endures new ones, and she's stymied at every turn as she tries to get back to something close to normalcy. She's got issues and a lot of anger, making her more human and relatable.
Ritter's Jones is the most fascinating character in Netflix's Marvel canon because she's not who we think she is, and certainly not who we want her to be.
Thanks to the events of The Defenders, Jessica's NY now understands the prevalence of super-powered individuals among them.
Taking another crack at The Defenders with a second season would give the producers a chance to get it right and make up for their missteps with the first season.
She's curious to find out why Jessica disappeared and how she acquired her super strength. 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. It's likely that not all of the experiments were successful, and I doubt any were as extensive as Alisa's given how he obsessed over her. However, the interactions among the heroes were fantastic, and made getting through The Defenders mostly (maybe) worthwhile. Trish will become more involved in Jessica's investigations so we will see the friendship between the pair strengthen even further as the season will have a particular focus on family and ties stronger than family.
