Did You Know?


While Kilgrave is talking with Jessica about when he was 10 years old, Jessica replies "You're not 10 anymore". David Tennant, who plays Kilgrave, was also the 10th Doctor (of Doctor Who), but he isn't "10 anymore" since he's no longer in that role. See more »


When Kilgrave is waiting on Jessica Jones to return in the latter part of the episode he makes the two elderly people he's been controlling hold their eyes open until she returns. They're begging him to let them blink, but he insists "You can blink when Jones returns and not a moment before." You can see the male actor blink for a moment when he begins speaking in french.

Wendy Ross-Hogarth: Even when we were dating, everyone wanted to know what I saw in you.
Jeri Hogarth: Then why did you marry me?
Wendy Ross-Hogarth: Because you were kind to me. You were a bastard to everyone else, and you were kind to *me*. I was special.
Jeri Hogarth: Well, I liked you.

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.
