This is part five of our 'Jessica Jones' show where we review every episode currently streaming in Netflix, because the Purple Man says so. Click here  to check reviews of other episodes.

Kilgrave (David Tennant) is slowly turning into one of Marvel’s best villains yet since Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk. Episodes 7 to 9 gave us both the strongest and weakest of this character so far. Getting his parents stab themselves already creates a huge satisfaction to himself, but we know the chaos he can create after his escape from the noise-proof storage room. 

The showrunners managed to let the audience know of the villain without going for the flashbacks like the studios did for “Daredevil”. Despite focusing mostly on Jessica’s perspective, the whole “AKA WWJD” and “AKA Sin Bin” episodes are really about Kilgrave, or Kevin. This is someone who was wrecked psychologically, emotionally and physically by his parents. Someone who “mind-controlled” his way to hunger and abandonment. He saw something in Jessica no other people would give him: pleasure. Under Jessica’s command in “AKA WWJD”, we see Jessica dominating over Kilgrave and from this very bit she can change her, even if the chances are of the slightest.

Following a bomb attack, Sergeant Simpson is hospitalized repeatedly calling the name “Dr. Kozlov”. I don’t have an idea of this Kozlov but for sure he has a secret relation to Simpson in the past, but we don’t know yet. Simpson is getting a bigger character here, and I’m holding my back that there might be a future transformation with him. What are those pills for? Possibly it’s just plain meds but who knows it might’ve been for something.

No Luke Cage for this three past episodes, but extending the picture here is Riva. Riva turned out to have the USB of Kilgrave’s childhood lab documentation. But why did she have it in the first place. We all knew Luke was experimented in his past, so can this link to Riva possessing the sole evidence of Kilgrave, along with other children, being experimented? Hmmm…

At the end of “AKA Sin Bin”, the big reveal is that Jessica is no longer out of Kilgrave’s control. Is this intentional? We absolutely don’t know as of now. But I assume it connects to damaging Jessica even more, by controlling other people instead of her especially after the laboratory hostage. 

The geek rates Episode 7 an 8/10, Episode 8 an 8.5/10 and Episode 9 an 9/10!

  1. 365 movies - Most negative reviews about vulgarity etc. are most likely coming from the interracial coupling on the show, however, my grievance is one of acting, set design, dialogue and pacing of the script - nothing works. Strong female characters can be believable, if done right such as Beatrice Kiddo in Kill Bill. Krysten Ritter is simply not a good enough actor to carry the show. Her delivery seems like she JUST read the lines from a script and has something more interesting scheduled in her personal life, after the shoot. Also, dialogue such as the gem "Our marriage is over, we don't even do oral" makes you think how far removed the writers are from real life. This is no Daredevil and does not deserve its placement in the same universe. I just watched a few episodes and couldn't force myself anymore. A missed opportunity.
