Jessica Jones Re-Watch: AKA Sin Bin

The Netflix series The Defenders premieres August 18.  As preparation, I’m re-watching all the Netflix shows set in the MCU. Right now I’m on Jessica Jones. Below are 10 thoughts I had while watching episode nine, “AKA Sin Bin.” Spoilers for the entire MCU, but for this episode in particular.

Trish Walker in AKA Sin Bin

  1. I’m glad Melissa Rosenberg made it so that Kevin is Kilgrave’s real name. I wouldn’t have been able to take the name Zebediah Killgrave seriously. Especially not for an Englishman.
  2. 20 years probably would feel like life for Hope, considering how much older she’d be when she finally got out of prison.
  3. “No, but it’ll hurt.” – This is why divorces get so ugly. It’s no longer about dividing up assets equally, it’s about making the other person hurt more than you do.
  4. It must have been so hard for Trish to electrocute her best friend.
  5. If Wendy is using her brains to try and get her way, Pam is going to use her body.
  6. I like how Kilgrave’s mother turned out the be a member of the support group who was shown (but had no lines) way back in episode four.
  7. “We tried to save him.” – I know it’s a parent’s instinct to do everything they can to save their child’s life, but there becomes a certain point where it’s kinder to let them die than to keep letting them suffer. This is an extreme example of that.
  8. Kilgrave’s mother stabbing herself to death is one of the hardest moments to watch on this show.
  9. My heart basically jumped out of my chest when Kilgrave told Trish to “put a bullet in [her] head” the first time I watched this.
  10. I was so happy when it was confirmed Jessica couldn’t be controlled by Kilgrave anymore. I’d had my suspicions ever since she was shown walking away from him the night she killed Reva, but I was 100 percent sure.
