'Jessica Jones' Season 2 is a bit of an uphill climb

"Jessica Jones

Jessica was forced to become Kilgrave's girlfriend and sidekick - and he didn't order her to use her powers for good.

"You couldn't see it (the tongue injury), there was no damage to my face, so I kept working", she laughs.

This show is also a shout-out to the women in the film industry. When Malcolm asks if it's illegal, Jeri says that's entirely up to them, so she obviously only cares about the end result, not the means. Whether it's a blended scotch or bourbon, former superhero turned private eye Jessica Jones is never far from a bottle.

There's something about Jessica Jones, played expertly on Netflix by Krysten Ritter, that makes me want to get up and shout, "Hell yes!" every time I see her grab a misogynistic stranger by the collar and shake him.

Just a day ahead of Jessica Jones season 2 dropping, Krysten Ritter says The Defenders are likely one and done... With a story that is heavy on unraveling the dealings of a shadow organization, there are a fair number of players onboard, including Jessica's best friend, Trish Walker, who dives deeper into the case, as well as the Hellcat persona that is lifted from the world of Marvel Comics. But if Kysten Ritter's recent remarks on the show's future are accurate, it looks as though one season of The Defenders is all we'll be getting. She's recognizable on the street and the phrase "superhero vigilante" is bandied about like this is Daredevil Season 1 establishing Hell's Kitchen. However, Dr. Karl explains that Alisa would pose a threat to her daughter unless she learns how to get her dissociative disorder and abilities under control. But she added that there are no plans to keep things going with an order for a second season - even though she's game, if Netflix were to green light more episodes.

Army bomb disposal experts were rushed to the scene of the explosion on the Ballyrobert Road. Police sources had earlier confirmed the woman was not a serving police officer.

It's been a long time since the first season of Jessica Jones.

Her superhero persona was Jewel, a super-strength character who hasn't been talked about much outside of the pages of Alias and the Netflix series. And regardless of who Trish is destined to become and what that means (Jessica doesn't tend to play well with other heroes), the relationship between the two women will always be unconditional. Trish discovers in Season 1 that IGH actually paid for some of Jessica's medical bills. Plus, while she does have these wonderful abilities, Jessica's best strength is her sleuth skills, which appear to get her further than being able to punch a hole in someone's chest.

"Jessica and Trish's friendship is on a roller coaster", Taylor says.

Now whether or not she is willing to make a choice to defend people like that again anytime soon will be a question for the new season as a serial killer stalks the superpowered community.

Five years passed, with Alisa in a medically-induced coma while she underwent extensive DNA restructuring and totally illegal medical tests (that's why Dr. Malus faked her death and shipped some generic ashes to Jessica to "help her move on"). 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 loses interest quickly when the guy insists on talking during their bar-stall sex, at which he point he realizes she's one of those superpowered people on the news and gives off a slightly racist vibe. Between helping him get clean and facing what Kilgrave did to him, the two have more in common than she will admit out loud.
