Jessica Jones gets closer to Luke Cage, and thinks that she knows a way to nullify Kilgrave’s abilities, so she tries to enlist the aid of various people in her life.
Which, it goes without saying, doesn’t quite go as planned.
This episode is also the first time we hear Cage say “Sweet Christmas,” and it’s awesome (and warranted).
We also learn that Jessica Jones isn’t above sacrificing those that she cares about in the name of a greater good.
The title, AKA It’s Called Whiskey refers to Jessica Jones’ use of the stuff as a coping mechanism.
Jessica runs into Kilgrave, and we learn her heretofore unknown connection to Luke Cage (there’s some dialog that mimics that from Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I’m putting that down to coincidence).
There’s a curious Invasion of the Body Snatchers-quality to the people under Kilgrave’s influence, in that there’s no reasoning, no suasion or quarter given.
Instead there’s a mindlessness to them that’s very interesting.
