Warning! Full SPOILERS follow for Jessica Jones Season 2. Check out our reactions to every Season 2 episode right here.
Now that you’ve finished your Jessica Jones Season 2 binge, let’s discuss what might be in store for our heroes down the road after that thrilling finale.
Starting with Jessica (Krysten Ritter), who surprisingly appears to be in a good place after witnessing her mother’s death at the hands of her best friend, Trish. Even after losing her mom, it’s nice to see that Jessica is still open to becoming a part of a new family. It will be interesting to see if Season 3 begins with Jessica, Oscar, and Vido still together. While it’s difficult to imagine Jessica settling down, now that she knows more about her past, perhaps she can truly start over?
Trish (Rachael Taylor) went through the biggest transformation of any character this season and as a result of her near-fatal surgery with Dr. Malus, Trish has acquired new cat-like reflexes that could make her a valuable crime-fighting ally to Jessica. In the comic books, Trish becomes Hellcat, a heroine with the abilities of mystical detection and telekinesis. Since Netflix’s version of Trish is grounded in the real-world, she probably won’t have those supernatural abilities, but Trish proved she can kick butt when she needs to. If she can find a way to make peace with Jessica, they would make a great team. Trish also showcased her talent for making costumes and using wigs to alter her appearance, so who knows what kind of crazy costume designs she’ll come up with next season?
Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) made some moves of her own by teaming up with Jessica’s ex-assistant, Malcolm Ducasse (Eka Darville). By successfully blackmailing her old partners, Jeri now has the resources to start her own law firm, and she’s taking on a pretty notable client: Rand Industries, which tees her up to play a role in Season 2 of Iron Fist. Speaking of Iron Fist, in the comics, Jeri eventually takes charge of Heroes for Hire, Luke Cage, and Danny Rand’s vigilante duo. There’s also the possibility of her breaking bad, especially considering the scene where she manipulates Inez into killing her boyfriend. Sure, they probably had it coming after stealing all of her stuff and making her believe that her ALS was cured, but even so, Jeri can be a terrifying adversary when you betray her.
As for Malcolm, it’s difficult to say what’s going on with him. While it’s great to see him off the drugs and wearing spiffy suits to work, Jessica’s competitor Pryce Cheng (Terry Chen) doesn’t quite fit the bill of a quality role model. Hopefully, Malcolm and Jessica will work together again since they have great chemistry.
It’s worth noting that Jessica Jones’ ending, and the entire season for that matter, is devoid of any mentions of The Defenders, almost acting as if it never happened. Jessica’s interactions with Matt Murdock and Luke Cage during that show were great, so it was disappointing not to have at least one cameo. For season 3, let’s hope the writers make some time for some more Netflix MCU appearances.
