Jessica Jones Review: Season 1 Episode 6 "AKA You're a Winner"

Jessica Jones Season 1 Episode 6
“AKA You’re a Winner”

Luke hires Jessica to help him find someone who may have skipped town, but she fears he’ll learn too much about her history in the process.

Episode 6 starts with another flashback of sorts. We are shown more of the powers of Kilgrave as he is playing in an underground highstakes poker game. Ultimately the money he won at the poker game is used to buy the house which Jessica grew up in. we also learn in this episode that Holly while under the control of Kilgrave became pregnant and she is paying the other prisoners money in order to beat her so she looses the baby

The main story in episode 6 starts when Luke decides to hire Jessica to help find the brother of a sister he knows. We learn that this sister has some details on death of his wife, this information creates a panic for Jessica as she is worried Luke will find out that Jessica was the cause of the death. Once the brother is found Luke learns that the cause was due to the fact that the bus driver was drunk while driving. Luke looses control and goes after the driver resulting in Jessica finally telling him the truth of what really happened.  

Final Thoughts:
So Luke knows the truth and wants nothing to do with Jessica now, This was the biggest twist of the season which isn’t surprising at all.  I really want to see how the story with Luke Cage plays out. It will be interesting to see how he comes back and in what way does he help. We know this will happen as Luke learned in this episode that Kilgrave is involved.  

Kilgrave buying Jessica’s childhood home is another interesting development in the story between he two. The more we get of Kilgrave the more I like him as the villain. He may be the best villain in the MCU has outside of Kingpin. Who doesn’t love the fact that Kilgrave is making Jessica sending him Selfies in order for him to still get photos of her. This episode shows that he doesn’t need to use Mind control in order to control Jessica and ultimately this will have consequences which should play out in future episodes.

I give this episode another Two Thumbs Up. Not much to complain about as the show keeps deliver great content. Leave your comments below and let us know what your thoughts were on Episode 6.
