Krysten Ritter returns as Jessica Jones in Season 2 of the Netlfix original series based on the Marvel comic of the same name.

After defeating Kilgrave last time around, Season 2 continues the allegory of Jessica as a survivor of sexual assault by exploring how she unwillingly received her powers. At the same time, supporting characters get welcome development, reducing the problem of filler episodes that plagued sister show “Iron Fist”.

All told, Ritter is excellent as ever, and while the villain isn’t as strong this time out, Jessica Jones is still the best at what she does, even if what she does isn’t very nice.
