Jessica Jones-A-Thon: AKA Sin Bin

“I wish that I had a Mother of the Year award, so I could bludgeon you with it.”

-Jessica Jones

Now that’s some snappy writing!

Welcome to what is likely the culminating day of the Screenphiles Jessica Jones-A-Thon!  We’re currently on the ninth episode of a thirteen episode 1st season.

Jessica has Kilgrave trapped, and tries to get a confession from him, while Trish tries to get Will to the hospital.  And speaking of Will, there’s more to this guy than meets the eye.  I don’t know if he has an analogue in the Marvel Universe, but I get the feeling that he’s someone I ought to know.

They’re also implying that something other than Kilgrave’s voice is the source of his abilities, mainly because he can’t influence anyone over a microphone–so he can’t call you and compel you to do something–which implies that they are very much sticking to the comics (which make pheromones the source of his abilities).

Whether or not Kilgrave was born bad or learned, he is what he is, a monster without remorse or regret:  a sociopath with the ability to make whatever he wasn’t reality just by saying it.

The title AKA Sin Bin refers a childhood hero of Kilgrave’s.
