Krysten Ritter on what "Jessica Jones" means to women

Need something new to watch on Netflix? Shit was fucked up way before Kilgrave (David Tennant).

In the third episode of Jessica Jones Season 1, a fan of the former It's Patsy child star runs up to Trish holding a copy of Patsy Walker Vol. 1 #26. This time around, though, the show wrestles with the idea that demons aren't so easily exorcised: the season begins with Jessica Jones confronting the fact that killing Killgrave didn't necessarily solve her problems. That doesn't make a murderer, obviously, but the trauma of the accident and the loss of her family could have pushed her to the point where she just doesn't care anymore - and that's not the same as brain damage. We'll see more of that before the episode ends. Her Alias Investigations business is in high-demand due to her name ringing off in the press, but Jessica's not interested in the majority of the cases coming her way. "She's afraid that because she has killed someone, that she is a murderer". She also evolves this season.

Another difference is in the comic, he said, Jessica Jones' best friend is Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel), not Trish Walker, played by Rachael Taylor in the show. "I don't think there's anything accidental about [creator Melissa Rosenberg's] intention and the story she set out to tell", says Netflix head of original series Allie Goss. In honor of International Women's Day, Jessica Jones releases Thursday, March 8 at 3:01 a.m. EST instead of Friday at 3:01 a.m. EST.

In its second season, the contrast between the title character (Krysten Ritter) and her antagonist is the core of "Jessica Jones", the best of Netflix's Marvel Cinematic Universe series. Trish discovers in Season 1 that IGH actually paid for some of Jessica's medical bills. "How very rapey of you", she replies, drily.

Thankfully, the show finds its energy in episode three, with the arrival of Janet McTeer as an unknown and potentially malevolent force. For all the anxiety and distrust around her, Jessica is capable of channeling the call to heroics and present to the viewers that survival and recovery is possible. She doesn't abide by the usual superhero credo that people come first. "Every time you think it's going to go one way, it goes slightly another way".

Ritter is terrific here, even when the dialogue isn't, and there's a thrill to watching her play the sort of charismatic, suffering jerk role that is typically only offered to male stars. Jessica's journey of self-reflection is dramatic enough without excess turmoil, after all. As and when the action does arrive, it is always with a objective to show the inherent weakness of Jessica's resolve and emotions, juxtaposed with her strength, shown through a gaping hole in a wall, in a vehicle or in someone's face. Again, turn away now if you don't want to be spoiled, because this is a doozy! He was also a writer and producer on Viceland series What Would Diplo Do? More than two years long.

Alas, Robert Coleman won't get to truly join their ranks seeing as he lasted all of about 20 minutes of season 2.

Believe it or not, the hapless potential client in Jessica Jones season 2 is a Marvel Comics character who has been around nearly as long as Captain America.
