After a few false leads and red herrings, it seems the season’s big bad has been revealed as Gregory Sallinger, a man with no powers but some very disturbing hobbies. In some ways, he may be one of the more dangerous foes Jessica has faced, especially with all the “help” she can stand from Trish.
Last episode ended with a grisly discovery and a narrow escape for Jessica. Psycho-killer that he is, you have to grant Salinger is clever, and that was actually a fairly simple but effective deathtrap.
After a few false starts, Jessica has a bead on who stabbed her at the end of episode one. While her foe isn’t someone with powers, which is a nice change for her, he’s incredibly smart and possibly her most dangerous foe yet.
We’ve seen a good bit about Jessica and Trish so far this season. The opening of “AKA Customer Service is Standing By” focuses on one of the new characters, Erik Gelden.
In the first episode of the season, we saw a shocking attack on Jessica. The second followed Trish through the changes she’s been going through since Malus’ treatments starting showing their effects. For episode three, we shift back to Jessica and her injuries, summed up decently by the title “AKA I Have No Spleen.”
instead of continuing from Jessica’s very bad end to her date, “AKA You’re Welcome,” shows us a lot of the events in and around the first episode, “AKA The Perfect Burger,” from Trish’s point of view.
Everyone’s favorite snarky, alcoholic, super-powered private investigator is back for her third and final season, as Netflix continues to finish off the partnership with Marvel. It’s a damn shame, considering the shows and the shared universe were fantastic, but nothing lasts forever. To quote a more famous Marvel hero, “Part of the journey is the end.”
