Jessica Jones is a freelance detective who has super human powers. She has super human strength and limited flight.
A couple comes to Jessica telling her that their daughter is missing and they need her help. Hope has quit the track team, and told her roommates to sell her stuff for rent. Apparently she went to live with her boyfriend.
Its ladies night at the bar, effective immediately as the mysterious man makes a case for Jessica to come inside. They get to talking and retire to the bedroom. Could this be Luke Cage?
Hope is “going overboard” for her boyfriend. Jessica knows who she is with, thanks to a messed up flashback of an anniversary dinner. She is with Kilgrave.
She needs to get out of New York, but has no money or friends. So she goes to Trish and they discuss his death and that Hope must be going through what Jessica went through. Trish ultimately decides to give Jessica money.
She revisits the hotel and pulls the fire alarm to coax them out of the room, when no one leaves the room, she goes in to find Hope alone. She refuses to leave so Jessica picks her up over her shoulders and carries her out.
Hope is reunited with her parents and all seems well. Until Hope pulls out a gun and kills her parents?! Hope is under Kilgrave’s spell and Jessica is uncharacteristically afraid. He is bad news.
This show is dark and twisted and creepy and I am sold! Krysten Ritter brings so much complexity to Jessica, she was made for this part. As a pilot, usually we find all kinds of things wrong with a show, but I honestly have nothing bad to say about it. I am ready to binge watch this for the next 11 hours!
