Jessica Jones Review: Season 1 Episode 2 "AKA Crush Syndrome"

Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 2
“AKA Crush Syndrome”

Jessica vows to prove Hope's innocence, even though it means tracking down a terrifying figure from her own past.

Episode 2 Start with Jessica in an interrogation room being questioned on the events from the shooting in the Elevator. During the Investigation cops found photo’s taken of Luke Cage and end up questioning him as well.  Its seems there is some tie to a woman who died and Cage. I am guessing she must have died due to Jessica and this is the reason she has been following Luke. Jessica try’s to explain the photo’s telling a story about being hired by the woman’s husband which he is currently sleeping with. The woman’s Husband decides to get a few buddies to go and rough up Luke, while this is happening Jessica goes to help and finds out that he has his own “Powers/abilities”

We also get Jessica going to visit the girl in prison, we learn from this visit that Kilgrave is trying to search for someone like Jessica, making the girl Jump and jump in order to see if she may have the same abilities. It seems from the bits and pieces we keep getting that as much as Jessica is afraid of Kilgrave, He might have the same fear of her. We also know Kilgrave blames Jessica for leaving him to die after getting hit by a bus. 

To save the girl and prove that she is innocent Jessica must find proof that Kilgrave is real in order to convince Jaryn to take the case. This leads her in search where she finds that not only did Kilgrave get a surgeon to perform an operation to get two new kidneys but also had the paramedic at the scene give his Kidneys. 

Final Thoughts, We finally get our first glimpse of David Tennant as Kilgrave. I just wish we got a chance to see him wearing Chucks. (yes, I am guessing you will have to put of with a lot of Doctor Who References as Tennant was my favorite Doctor). We see a scene where Trish Walker is training. What role can we expect from her character going forward. Overall the show is great at the slow burn, and for being such a Dark Comicbook show it has grabbed my attention fast. A little side note, the composer of Jessica Jones, Sean Callery also did all the music for 24.

Overall I give this episode One Thumbs up. Leave comments below on your thoughts of the show
