Jessica Jones Review: Season 1 Episode 3 "AKA It's Called Whiskey"

Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 3
“AKA It’s Called Whiskey”

It won’t be easy to acquire or deploy. but Jessica thinks she’s found a weapon to use against Kilgrave. Luke and Jessica bond over their similarities

Episode 3 starts where Episode 2 left off, Marvel really is pushing the envelope with Jessica Jones. I guess Disney really does know what sex is. Best part of the first 5 min of the show was when Luke Cage asks if there are anymore people like them and the big green guy. Another little nod to the Avengers. Finally we find out that its Luke’s wife which died and is the person Jessica has been having visions of. In this episode Jessica also thinks that she has found a way to fight against Kilgrave by using a surgical anesthetic.  Like most awesome plans which are brought up this early, what are the real chance this will have any effect on kilgrave?

Due to the backlash Hope is receiving from the public due to her murdering her own parents, Jessica convinces Trish to do an on the air interview with Hope. This plan backfires when Trish goes off on Kilgrave and emasculating him on the air. The consequences from this puts Trish in the crosshairs of Kilgrave who sends a cop to try and kill Trish, fortunately Jessica was there. For the first time this season Jessica actually finds Kilgrave when she followed the cop back to the apartment he is currently occupying. 

Final thoughts, the third episode of Jessica Jones really ramps up the action. We finally get the chance to see the full control of Kilgraves mind control. I personally am enjoying the slow reveal of the relationship between Kilgrave and Jessica, just great writing for this show. This episode presented many different possibilities for plot twist in upcoming episodes. While we finally learn Jessica killed Luke’s wife, the ultimate question will be why Kilgrave decided to have this done. How will this effect the relationship between Jessica and Luke, what does Kilgrave ultimately have in store for Luke. Also during the same flashback, one thing stood out, Jessica stopped listening to Kilgrave, does this mean she has the power to push him out?

How creepy was the room with all of the photo’s of Jessica? Plus David Tennant’s voice provide a creepiness second to non, has Marvel found its best Villain? 

This so far is the best episode, which isn’t surprising as most Netflix Series have great build ups. I give this episode Two Thumbs Up. Leave your Comments Below and let us know what your opinion of this episode was.
