resolve and emotions, juxtaposed with her strength, shown through a gaping hole in a wall, in a vehicle or in someone's face. She's not afraid to call out misogyny when she sees it, nor is she hesitant to use the word rape when describing what Kilgrave did to her. "As this season finds her, we're starting to learn more about her and initially the biggest factor seems to be that she's dealing with this inner monster", says star Krysten Ritter.
RITTER: (As Jessica Jones) And I always deal with threats head-on, meaning I punch them in the head until they're unconscious. Whether it's a blended scotch or bourbon, former superhero turned private eye Jessica Jones is never far from a bottle. And yet, when it comes to comic book screen adaptations, I don't think any damaged superhero is as affecting as Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter). And in this scene, Jessica and her assistant Malcolm are visited by a man named Pryce Cheng played by Terry Chen.

Marvel's Jessica Jones is about to return for its second season on Thursday, and a lot has changed since its first season and Jessica's (Krysten Ritter) struggle against Kilgrave (David Tennant).
Griffin is friendly, even to Jessica, and appears to deeply care about Trish. The first seasons of Daredevil and Jessica Jones suffered from this problem the least - and they remain the high watermark entries in this franchise - but even they stretched things a tad; Daredevil had to spin its wheels before getting to the endgame, and Jessica had to be stuck in the house for a few episodes. One already has in season 2 - Whizzer - and now that Jessica seems to be trying to form connections with other people, could she go looking for them in season 3?
Jessica Jones Season 2 has dropped on Netflix and, while it's a successful follow-up to the first season in a lot of ways, there are some issues with it. She drinks too much. Unfortunately, Jessica Jones tends to fall into those same traps during season two. We'll see more of that before the episode ends.
Rachel Taylor in Jessica Jones. She's still acting out, and being a dick to the people who support her. Her angry ball-throwing speech about what she's been through was one of the best bits from the trailer and it didn't disappoint in the show either. She retreated back to IGH and the open arms of Dr. Malus-who would also turn into her new longterm boyfriend, adding even more layers of ethical ickiness to everything. She tracked Jessica down and spent a day spying on her, watching her super-powered college-aged daughter from afar. It's made them feel better about what they've been through in their own lives.
Nine times out of ten, a gumshoe blessed with super strength, the power of flight, a hair trigger temper and a stare icy enough to make glaciers look hospitable probably doesn't need protection. Will denied it, and said someone more powerful was the cause - the "monster" that was after Trish, who he stalked to protect.
As the sixth episode, "AKA Facetime", reveals, the woman who seemingly set Jess up for murder and is knocking off anyone and everyone associated with IGH, the shadowy organization whose illegal experiments gave Jessica her powers, is Jessica's own mother, Alisa Jones (Janet McTeer).
