Jessica Jones Season Three - Review

June 23, 2019

     


         Jessica Jones’ final season delivered the perfect finale to Netflix’s Marvel universe. While it was heartbreaking watching this universe come to an end, the finale was also rewarding. The third  season goes back to the one main villain approach they did in back in the first season, at least it appeard to be. Jeremy Bobb’s villain ‘Sallinger’ was not on par with Kilgrave, but he was miles ahead of Jessica’s mother. The real surprise of the season was the true main villain. The villain wasn’t surprising in terms of reveal since they’ve been building it up for a while now, it was surprising in terms of Jessica’s action against them. There isn’t much to say about the plot without revealing more of it, but here’s something I can say. Nothing will top the first season in terms of writing, but season three came very close. We’ve seen a lot of character developments and lots of arcs closed, unlike Daredevil’s finale which left us still wondering. Krysten Ritter remains one of the most talented actresses working today, and Rachael Taylor’s ‘Trish’ is her perfect companion. However, the stand out performance was the formidable Carrie-Ann Moss as ‘Jeri Hogarth’. Moss plays her character so well that she had me yelling at the screen a few times, and her closure was nothing short of deserving. It is quite sad that we won’t see Jessica Jones on screen again, especially since Marvel doesn’t plan on bringing the Defenders' to the big screen or Disney’s new streaming service. There’s no way to find out how that change in the platform would have affected Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and The Punisher. But we know that a change of tone would be guaranteed to keep up with Disney’s lighter interpretations of their Marvel heroes. Perhaps it was the best for these shows to die on Netflix, after all, “You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain”.
