Last episode ended badly for Jessica, but then, a lot of them do. On the heels of Dorothy Walker’s brutal death, Jessica was confronted by some different NYPD Detectives than the ones she’s been dealing with
The occupation of Freeland seems like it’s been going on forever, and now the various other forces are getting together to do something about it. An alliance is being formed, even as a death is mourned, someone fights for their life, and a relationship takes a nose dive.
