Jessica stops him by revealing the truth: she killed his wife. I’m slightly concerned by how much fun Kilgrave is, though.
The poker game he was playing in was hilarious, and I didn’t feel too bad about being on his side because he was communing with people who didn’t seem all that nice anyway.
was definitely improved by making its villain sympathetic, but then he wasn’t a raping, indiscriminate psychopath like Kilgrave is.
That’s where Jessica lived – she attended the same high school as Peter Parker) without using his powers makes it clear to that he’s past using them for the thrill of it, and looking for some kind of deeper connection with his prey.
That’s interesting in itself, and it’s sure to be his downfall in the end.
As far as expanding the MCU, when Luke tries to hire Jessica she points him in the direction of Angela Del Toro.
In the comics, Del Toro is a former Fed who inherited a mystical amulet that gave her the power of the White Tiger.
Marvel's Jessica Jones is available to view now on Netflix, and as with Daredevil we'll be providing (mostly) daily episode-by-episode coverage for those who want to follow it with us.
Each instalment of these viewing notes will look at how the show's plot, characters and story relate to the comic source material, providing background information and pointers for those who want to know more.
Please note that while we might occasionally reveal the way plots developed in the comics, we are trying to be sensitive to any surprises the TV show may have in store.
These notes are written immediately after the episode is watched, so any speculation about the way the story may go is purely that!
All we ask is that if you've seen future episodes that confirm, contradict or otherwise twist things we talk about in this piece, please respect people who don't have the luxury of binge-watching and please don't put spoilers for future episodes anywhere in the comments. Luke hires Jessica, resuming their on-again, off-again involvement.
