The first official full trailer for Jessica Jones Season 2 was released earlier this week and wow was it good. There is lots to talk about, however if you have not seen Season 1 of Jessica Jones or Daredevil Season 2 please do not read any further unless you don't mind being spoiled. Also beware that there will be explicit language in this post due to Jessica's tendency to curse!
So to start things off we have the big car crash. One of the pivotal moments in her life this is where her parents died when she was younger. This shows that this season will dive deeper into her origin as we also see her tied to a stretcher as someone is about to do "horrific experiments" on her as she mentions in the trailer, and of cause it wouldn't be Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) if we didn't see her drinking.
We then get a wider MCU reference in a little boy saying "Do you know Captain America?" She didn't look happy afterwards and its not surprising as she doesnt like having super powers as she mentions in the scene before "Superhero shit". Also this could be confusing as to when this series is set within the MCU as at the current moment Captain America is classed as a war criminal after the events of Civil War so why would a little kid be mentioning his name?
Next up we see Pryce Cheng (Terry Chen) who wants "absorb" Alias Investigations due to them being "the competition" as Jessica refers to it. Since we see her stalking him just before this scene and due to the events later on in the trailer we think this absorption does go down very well.
We see her investigating her family's accident and the origin of her powers. If you look close enough you can see the names of two of the death certificates one being her mother Alisa Jones and the other her brother Philip Jones, who you can see her with in a picture with a ferris wheel. She mentions that she has "17 years of questions" and we're hoping some of them are answered in this upcoming season.
Trish walker (Rachael Taylor) is a big part of the next few scenes as we see her and Jessica exploring a facility. Jessica reveals that she was one of many people experimented on so that could mean that there are others like her out there. She then gets tackled by someone, but it looks like Janet McTeer's unnamed character.
We then see Jessica exploring the hallway from the flashback of her in a stretcher. This season is clearly all about her past and Jessica finally finding out once and for all how everything fits together.
Janet McTeer's character gives us a huge reveal, that Jessica Jones died and came back to life. Her powers were only a side effect to her coming back to life. This has only happened to two other peoples in the MCU Elektra in Daredevil who was revived by The Hand, and Phil Coulson who was revived by shield. This leaves us with many questions. Why was she revived? How many people have been revived? Jessica poses the latter question and just before she does we see her jumping off the ferris wheel from the picture before. Could this be an indication as to who else is out there?
Two gruesome murders are shown next. These are made out to be done by someone who has a lot of power. Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) mentions that "there is a killer you cannot control." This could have been done the big villain of the series which is still unknown at this point.
Could this season transform Trish into her comic book alter ego Hellcat? We see Trish get into a fight just after she mentions that Jessica needs a side kick. She already has had self defense lessons and can hold her own so we're hoping for a further transformation into the character. In the comics Hellcat is a street level vigilante so will be perfect for the Netflix Marvel series'.
We see some quick scenes. One where Jessica pushes Janet McTeer's character into a wall so that didn't end well. Another where she is angry at Pryce Cheng so this also didn't end well as she ends up punching him through a window and another scene where she punches a cell wall. This shows that she has probably been set up for the murders that were shown previously in the trailer.
We see a shot of ash falling from above which is strange as we haven't seen any other footage which lines up with this. We also see how she gets in that cell from before as she is arrested by the NYPD. Also a charred skull is shown which could be anybodies. Maybe it's from a similar experiment to Jessica's however this one went horribly wrong.
Something terrible must have happened to let Jeri show these extreme emotions. She is normally the last person to show emotion so something bad has happened
This next scene could be another flashback which could be linked to the ash falling. We see a charred figure breaking out of the facility from before. Could this be the skull that she finds?
We are shown a lot of quick scenes which haven't really got much to say about them as most of it is making out or jessica hurting someone. However we are shown jessica getting hit by an explosion. The final moments of the trailer is the section that hypes us the most here at ASO. The final moments bathe Jessica in a purple light and show a pair of hands clapping. This symbolises Kilgrave's (David Tennant) return, the purple light being a reference to the fact that in the comics he is called the purple man due to his skin being purple. Since Kilgrave died in the finale of last season we're curious as too how he returns. Is it a vision from Jessica? Did he really survive? Or has he been revived? We are really excited to see his return as one of the best MCU villains to date.
There we have it. Everything the trailer had to offer. We cannot wait for season 2 too air on March 8th. Thank you very much for reading this post. These are our next two posts, which we'd love you to return for:
