Originally Jessica Jones was offered to ABC, and I can’t imagine why they passed on it. Sure, they would have to tone down on the cursing and the sexual situations, but other than that?
Anyways, Jones (Krysten Ritter) is working with Malcolm (Eka Danville, who’s also Australian, I think) who’s detoxed to try to figure out how Kilgrave does what he does, before Luke Cage (Mike Colter, who’s perfectly cast) hires her to find someone.
She also has to deal with Hope (Erin Moriarty) being hurt in prison.
This episode is particularly hard-hitting, and while I don’t know how you stand on the abortion issue, this episode might give you a little food for thought.
And Luke Cage rides a Harley Davidson. This is a good thing because if he got on a Kawasaki or whatever I’d be a bit miffed (though I’d be a bit more tolerant of a Ducati or a Buell).
This episode we also learn that Jeryn Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) isn’t made entirely of ice (maybe only 70-80%).
The title, AKA You’re A Winner! refers to a trick Jones uses to track down a person she’s helping Cage to find.
And speaking of Cage, we get another “Sweet Christmas” this episode, and it too well-earned.
