Netflix Releases Titles and Synopses Ahead Of ‘Jessica Jones’ Series Premiere

By November 2, 2015

Now that we’re into November, one of the things that I’m most excited for this month is the release of Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix. Daredevil was such an amazing television viewing experience that I cannot wait to see what the studio has in store for us this time around.

Now, I’m going to issue a bit of a spoiler warning here, because although nothing too big is revealed in the following information, there are some plot points that are hit upon. So, if your goal is to go in completely blind, I suggest that you stop reading now. If the little stuff doesn’t bother you, then by all means, carry on.

Netflix (with a hat tip to Heroic Hollywood) has released the titles and a brief synopsis for each of the 13 episodes of the upcoming season. They are as follows:

  • AKA Ladies Night : Jessica Jones is hired to find a pretty NYU student who’’s vanished, but it turns out to be more than a simple missing persons case.
  • AKA Crush Syndrome: Jessica vows to prove Hope’s innocence, even though it means tracking down a terrifying figure from her own past.
  • 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.
  • AKA: 99 Friends: A new case demands attention as Jessica tries to find out who’s spying on her for Kilgrave. Trish’s radio show yields unexpected consequences.
  • AKA The Sandwich Saved Me: Despite Jessica’s objections, Trish’s new friend Simpson gets involved in the hunt for Kilgrave. Jessica recalls a pivotal moment in her life.
  • 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.
  • AKA Top Shelf Perverts: Malcom, Simpson and Trish go rouge to prevent Jessica from carrying out an extreme plan to outwit Kilgrave.
  • AKA WWJD: Jessica experiences a strange homecoming courtesy of Kilgrave. Hograth’s conflict with her estranged wife reaches a tipping point.
  • AKA Sin Bin: Just when Jessica has Kilgrave right where she want’s him. Hogarth’s involvement complicates the situation. Details of Kilgrave’s past emerge.
  • AKA 1,000 Cuts: A discovery has the potential to change the entire game — if Jessica can refuse Kilgrave’s offer.
  • AKA I’ve Got The Blues: Jessica searches morgues for clues. Trish goes all out to keep Simpson from getting in Jessica’s way. Malcom has an epiphany.
  • AKA Take a Bloody Number: The hunt for Kilgrave reunites Jessica with Luke. Trish receives some unexpected information about Simpson and Jessica.
  • AKA Smile: Jessica and Luke get help from someone else in the neighborhood. Kilgrave gears up for a major test of powers against Jessica.

Okay, so first off, how awesome is it that each of the episodes begins with the ‘AKA’? That’s just a fantastic bit of marketing there. What I get from this is that Kilgrave is going to be playing a large part in the series, essentially from the beginning. That’s not really surprising, given that Kingpin played a huge part in Daredevil. The other thing that jumps out is Jessica and Luke’s relationship seems to play a bigger part than expected as well.

While we all knew that Cage would be making an appearance, especially given he and Jessica’s relationship in the comics, I am excited to see that it looks like their relationship will progress over the course of the season. And seriously, in that final episode, you can just say Daredevil because we all know who ‘someone else in the neighborhood’ means.

I think that I am at the stage where I am counting down the days until the series is released. I have already cleared my calendar (well, mostly, anyway) in expectation of a serious binge-watching weekend.

Jessica Jones is set premiere in its entirety on November 20, 2015 on Netflix.
