Did You Know?


When Jessica and Luke are talking on the balcony, staking out Zalk Labs, the skyline of New York behind them features Avengers Tower; this is a rare direct reference to the MCU films. See more »


Albert Thompson: The changes are incremental, not exponential...
Kilgrave: I haven't got time for incremental, Dad. Jessica is trying to kill me now!
Albert Thompson: Well, we won't know if you can control Jessica without Jessica. All we can test for is time and distance.
Kilgrave: Well, my distance is piss-all. You hear the hecklers in the back row?
Albert Thompson: "Get off the stage, asshole."
Kilgrave: I didn't ask you to recount it.

"I WROTE it... Surprise!"
20 October 2018 | by michaelschrute1See all my reviews

You might as well skip to the last 15 minutes of this one. The fireworks at the end redeem an otherwise weak entry. Kilgrave is at his most cunning, and the final sequence is blood-pumping fun. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.

That said, it's difficult to overlook the issues that have begun to plague the show, seemingly ever since Kilgrave got locked up. For starters, the characters are getting both more boring and less likable. Malcolm in particular is starting to border on insufferable. Both his story and Trish's are total snoozefests this week.

Still, the payoff at the end was enough for me to forgive this one.
