109 Jessica Jones Final
Written by Frank Shaw on July 5, 2019
Jessica Jones Final Season. To start with we give a shout out to the See You Next Tuesday podcast, who are doing a men’s health episode soon, John gives us an update on his health, and it’s good news! We then toss the idea of having Haydn from See You Next Tuesday on as a guest near the end of summer.
As we go through the plot we talk about Jessica, and where she starts this season, as opposed to the beginning of last season. We also touch on Malcolm and Trish characters as well. We have some opposing perspectives on the characters this episode as we discuss the old and new characters introduced this season: Eric Gelden and Gregory Salinger, and give our thoughts on the villain this episode, and how he compares to the previous two seasons.
After our discussion on plot and character we dive into the themes of the season: Starting with “the ends justify the means”, which is most apparent in Trish’s story arc as well as Jeri’s. Then it’s “You’re never a villain in your own story”, which is also the crux of Trish’s story arc this season. But the serial killer Salinger also doesn’t consider himself a bad individual, despite the murders he’s committed in the pursuit of “truth”. Then we talk a little about how Jessica seems to perceive herself through out the season, and the series. Which brings us to the last thought on themes: “That you can’t give yourself the label of hero, it’s given to you by others, and then you have to live up to it”.
John then elucidates his issues thoroughly about this season. Frank throws out some observations on the seasons treatment of LGBQT characters. Then Frank throws out some vain hope for the future on Disney+. Finally we wrap up with our final thoughts.
“This season, as much as I thought it was great, it’s really, it’s really shitty that this is where, where we end it.” -John
“I’m kinda ok with her dying alone and unloved.” -John
“In a lot of ways they are the most products of their time” -John
[Frank uses the reality ball to recreate SuperHero City, where all the residents constantly fight each other. They hide beneath the Big Bad Baddie Building where they discover, after a phone call with John’s brothers dog, Wagner, that there’s a tunnel that goes all the way to calculator city.]
