Jessica Jones Re-Watch: AKA Take a Bloody Number

The Netflix series The Defenders premieres August 18.  In 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 twelve, “AKA Take a Bloody Number.” Spoilers for the entire MCU, but for this episode in particular.

Luke Cage and Jessica Jones in AKA Take a Bloody Number

  1. It’s not something I thought about when I first watched it, but Luke’s fear of the cops foreshadows his origins in Luke Cage.
  2. It always frustrated me that Albert had decades to create a vaccine, but failed, yet was able to increase Kilgrave’s powers in no time at all.
  3. The best thing Dorothy could do for Trish is stay away from her. That woman is toxic.
  4. I hope we learn more about IGH and how they’re responsible for Jessica’s superpowers in season two.
  5. Poor Trish. Just when she thought Dorothy was finally coming around to being a good person, she learns the woman wants something from her.
  6. This suicide scene is beyond disturbing. Kilgrave has such a depraved mind.
  7. Trish is so protective of Jessica, keeping the information about IGH from her. Those two really are just like sisters.
  8. I’m happy Malcolm decided not to leave New York after all. Jessica needs as many good people in her life as she can get and I’m looking forward to seeing him in The Defenders.
  9. Robyn may be crazy and annoying, but I’m glad she forgave Malcolm. It showed character growth.
  10. This fight scene between Luke and Jessica is so beautifully choreographed and shot.
