The following article contains spoilers for the final season of Marvel's Jessica Jones through to Episode 7.
Marvel's Jessica Jones has never been one of them after a fight , But in the third and final season of the drama, there was a confrontation that Jessica should have left, according to the woman she portrays.
In Episode 7 titled "AKA The Double Half-Wappinger," Jessica and the estranged sister Trish Walker take a trip to Wappinger Falls, the small town where serial killer Gregory Salinger, the big evil of the season, was raised. After Jessica and Trish reached a cul-de-sac in Hell's Kitchen and had no substantial evidence that Salinger was being arrested for murder, they went to his hometown, hoping to find some breadcrumbs that would turn them into one of Salinger's first killings.
Halfway, Jessica finds something, and it's great: She reveals the body of Nathan Silva, a teenager who was with Salinger in the wrestling team when they were both in high school. Nathan had been declared missing for decades, but Jessica finally found the boy's body buried under a gazebo in his parents' backyard. (Murder investigations are so easy if you can only lift a pavilion with your bare hands, right?)
Jessica and Trish are sick of her discovery and return to New York City back and Jessica tracks down Salinger at a local middle school where he practices wrestling. When Salinger sees her waiting in the hall, he invites her into his wrestling training and challenges her to a match in front of all of his students. Meanwhile, he mocks her that she can only win a fight if she uses her powers. During the fight, Salinger hits Jessica pretty quickly – but when she whispers, "Is that the stop you used to kill Nathan?" Much to the joy of the students Jessica gets a few hits and finally presses him with his foot.
"You'll see who you are, you'll see all ," warns Salinger Jessica, who only replies, "Let her lay off class."
When she was drafted after Jessica's victory at the Asked at the end of the episode, Star Krysten Ritter said she had "struggled with this scene" because she did not agree with her character's behavior at the time.
"Did not I really think Jessica would do that" Knight admits. "And then, when you're there, say," OK, I understand what she's doing. "[But] She's going too far. Jessica is doing it right.
In fact, Jessica's win in the wrestling match has a negative impact, causing Salinger to become even more unscrupulous. But Ritter says she understood Jessica's decision, because the character in Season 3 still learns a lot, just like a real hero.
"She should not have done that. That was not the right step, "she says. "And that's part of her superhero journey when she makes mistakes and does not know what to do."
The series' creator, Melissa Rosenberg, agrees with Ritter's view and declares it is "classic Jessica" when the heroine humiliates an enemy impulsively without thinking about the long-term consequences.
"It's part of the fun to watch them. She'll probably do the wrong thing, but it has something really satisfying, "Rosenberg says. "[Salinger] controls everything, and he does not have [control] in that situation, and that triggers it out.It makes it a lot worse, but in that moment she had this thing."
