When approaching the house with the hostage taker, Kilgrave says, "We can go about our business. Move along, move along," to the cops guarding the house. This is what Obi Wan Kenobi says to the Stormtroopers that stop them from entering Mos Eisley in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). Jessica even makes this comparison moments later.

The thumb drive with footage of Kevin/Kilgrave when he was still a child would not have been available till 2000+ (not certain exactly when retractable units like the one shown first came out but the earliest would have been in 2000) while the footage was from 1985. It's never stated when or even why it was buried. See more »


Kilgrave: We used to do a lot more than just touch hands.
Jessica Jones: Yeah. It's called rape.
Kilgrave: What? Which part of staying in five star hotels, eating in all the best places, doing whatever the hell YOU wanted is rape?
Jessica Jones: The part where I didn't want to do any of it! Not only did you physically rape me but you violated every cell in my body and every thought in my goddamn head.
Kilgrave: That was not what I was trying to do.
Jessica Jones: It doesn't matter what you were trying to do. You raped me again and again!

Sharp writing and good character development make this episode particularly memorable
23 May 2016 | by Tarx309See all my reviews

It's great to finally see that Kilgrave is directly at the centre of this series. The main reason why episodes #4 and #6 didn't work so well for me was because they were too self-contained and felt like just filler episodes, but thankfully there was none of that here. This episode advanced the plot a great deal (more than any other episode has done so far), and was genuinely gripping from start to finish.

The writing was particularly good here - thankfully any misguided attempts at humour were dropped and instead we got realistic, grounded drama from Jessica and Kilgrave, in particular. Kilgrave especially was well written; all the reveals and emotion surrounding him were taken very seriously and also realistically, and the sharp writing made them especially convincing.

Also very notably there was genuine character development here. For the past seven episodes Jessica has been irritatingly one-tone and hasn't really shown much range or development, but thankfully that changed here. Kilgrave's character also was built on a lot, and there were some very intriguing seems surrounding him.

Overall I enjoyed this episode more than any of the previous seven, and, for once, it wasn't just Kilgrave that made this episode so good.
