What I’m Watching: Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones: Season 2, Episode 8 “AKA Ain’t We Got Fun” (B+)

After a full flashback last week, we got to see how Jessica really feels about everything that she’s learned. She wasn’t happy at all to be chained to the chair and was pretty angry with Carl while he was calmly telling her that she shouldn’t have these feelings towards her mother. Alisa burst right in and told Carl to run as soon as she realized that she had texted the police, and then things got to slow down a bit as Alisa poured a drink and told her daughter to say whatever it was that she needed to while they still had some time. After Alisa opened up about her deteriorating marriage, Jessica figured out that she had a secret way out and made the very surprising decision to bring her mother back to her home. The way that she complimented the decorating and the painting before wandering down the hall to meet Oscar was very disarming, and then she sprung right into action when the bullets started coming in and they were in serious danger. I’m glad that Malcolm finally confronted Trish about her addiction of choice, and she was very open with him about exactly what the inhaler was. He reacted smartly, refusing to indulge her while she was taking it, but then she gave him a hit after he got into the fight, and it’s going to be very hard for him to come back from that since it obviously had an immediately detrimental effect on him.
