jessica jones season 2 spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Netflix’s Jessica Jones season 2.)

Jessica Jones season 2 has a monumental task ahead of it. Not only does it have to follow the riveting, near-perfect first season, it has to do it from scratch.

The first season of Jessica Jones neatly wrapped up the main storyline adapted from Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos‘ critically acclaimed Alias comic book series after Jessica sent Kilgrave to his — well — grave. Now, the sophomore outing of Jessica Jones is left without Jessica’s main, nay, only supervillain. Where does it go from there?

The seeds of season 2 were planted throughout the first season: an shadowy corporation, illegal child experimentation, new sidekicks. But Jessica Jones doesn’t exactly follow up on those plot threads — and that’s for both better and worse. Instead, Jessica Jones season 2 introduces one of the most fascinating and layered dynamics between complex women we’ve ever seen in a Marvel series. Too bad it’s buried underneath clunky subplots and incoherent narratives.

Jessica Jones is back. After defeating Kilgrave by outsmarting his mind control and teaming up with The Defenders, Jessica (Krysten Ritter) is back in the city and taking P.I. cases. The notoriety of her previous exploits brings in new customers, but also customers who expect her to use her super strength for petty revenge.

Meanwhile, Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) tries to investigate Jessica’s medical history and Jeri Hogarth (Carrie Anne Moss) needs Jessica’s help to fight for her law firm. Pretty soon, Jessica encounters Alisa Jones (Janet McTeer), whose strength surpasses her own.

Jessica Jones season 2 review

Jessica Jones returns for an entertaining, if slightly muddled, second season. Krysten Ritter‘s droll, damaged private eye remains the best character Netflix has in their Marvel line-up, and while Ritter’s work is enough to make season 2 worthwhile, things get off to a shaky start.

Read our spoiler-free Jessica Jones season 2 review below (and look for our spoiler-review a little down the road).

jessica jones season 2

Although I mostly like Daredevil and I was quite fond of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones remains the crown jewel of the Marvel Netflix shows. The series is a real “Best of Both Worlds” situation, combining Daredevil‘s knack for stylish action with Luke Cage‘s keen attention to location and character. And it does while also being very much its own thing with its own unique perspective that also fits snugly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I loved it.

Of course, one of the reasons Jessica Jones feels so fresh is that it’s the rare Marvel story built entirely around a female lead and showrunner Melissa Rosenberg and her team leaned heavily on this fact, offering a first proper look at the MCU through the eyes of a woman. And now, the upcoming second season of the show is looking to double down on this angle as every single episode will be helmed by a female director.

Marvel's Jessica Jones

When Netflix dropped the first season of their latest Marvel series, Jessica Jones, on November 20, many viewers finished it before Thanksgiving. To comic books fans, the rest of us were just catching up. The show pulled a lot from Brian Michael Bendis’s Alias series, including Jessica (Krysten Ritter)’s relationship with Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and the villain Kilgrave (David Tennant) who could control people by simply uttering commands.

Jessica Jones came to television via showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, a longtime writer on Dexter and shows like The O.C., Birds of Prey and Party of Five. She also created the short-lived drama Red Widow and perhaps most famously wrote the screenplays for all five Twilight movies. We would have wanted to speak with Rosenberg about Jessica Jones anyway, but the fact that it became such an instant phenomenon only gave us more questions in a post-holiday phone interview.  Read More »
