Trivia

Whilst waiting for Jessica to return from her walk, Kilgrave has Bouchard and Rivera on look out, having also forced them to keep their eyes open. His instruction could almost certainly have been "don't blink". Blink was an episode from his tenure of Doctor Who where the instruction to the characters was "don't blink". See more »

Goofs

The thumb drive with footage of Kevin/Kilgrave when he was still a child would not have been available till 2000+ (not certain exactly when retractable units like the one shown first came out but the earliest would have been in 2000) while the footage was from 1985. It's never stated when or even why it was buried. See more »

Quotes

Kilgrave: We can go about our business. Move along. Move along.

Sharp writing and good character development make this episode particularly memorable
23 May 2016 | by Tarx309See all my reviews

It's great to finally see that Kilgrave is directly at the centre of this series. The main reason why episodes #4 and #6 didn't work so well for me was because they were too self-contained and felt like just filler episodes, but thankfully there was none of that here. This episode advanced the plot a great deal (more than any other episode has done so far), and was genuinely gripping from start to finish.

The writing was particularly good here - thankfully any misguided attempts at humour were dropped and instead we got realistic, grounded drama from Jessica and Kilgrave, in particular. Kilgrave especially was well written; all the reveals and emotion surrounding him were taken very seriously and also realistically, and the sharp writing made them especially convincing.

Also very notably there was genuine character development here. For the past seven episodes Jessica has been irritatingly one-tone and hasn't really shown much range or development, but thankfully that changed here. Kilgrave's character also was built on a lot, and there were some very intriguing seems surrounding him.

Overall I enjoyed this episode more than any of the previous seven, and, for once, it wasn't just Kilgrave that made this episode so good.
