Jessica has been through a lot this season. Well, she’s been through a lot in general, but this one has been really rough. Trish is losing it, Jessica is having legal issues, and Erik is a complication for her, no matter how enjoyable.
The season, and series, are almost over, and there have been a lot of surprises and twists along the way. Trish got her wish, and it’s done pretty much nothing good for her (or for Jessica, for that matter). Now Dorothy’s dead, Salinger is still causing problems, the sisters are getting pushed further apart by Trish’s poor judgement.
Last episode ended with the shocking death of Dorothy Walker, and Trish going to get her revenge on Salinger. Jessica, guided by both her own moral code and her love for Trish, stopped her sister from doing something she couldn’t come back from and got her out of there. Now, there will be repercussions, heightened tension, and a lot of trying to manage fallout.
After two seasons of various superpowered foes, Jessica’s being put through the wringer by Gregory Salinger, a man with no powers, no conscience, but lots of smarts and cunning. Based loosely on the comic book villain Foolkiller, Salinger is matching wits with our hero and her allies, and at the very least coming to a draw so far.
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.
