Marvel's Jessica Jones returns to Netflix for its sophomore season tomorrow but the high expectations that come along with it were met with an unfortunate whimper. Netflix provided the first five episodes of season two as a preview, and while Jessica (Krysten Ritter) is back to business at Alias Investigations after the events of season one, she's not back to form.

Jessica Jones' first season told the story of a rape survivor grappling with PTSD and confronting the source of her psychological and physical trauma. Then, Jessica (Krysten Ritter) ultimately triumphed over her demons, but as the first half of the second season unfolds, Jessica Jones explores the idea that her journey of recovery did not and could never really have ended with Kilgrave's death - it wouldn't have been honest, and wouldn't have laid the groundwork for the compelling, difficult story Jessica Jones' second season tells.
Jessica and Trish's relationship in Jessica Jones was without a doubt one of the highlights of its first season. We saw it grow from estrangement to affection, culminating in Jessica telling Trish she loved her as she snapped Kilgrave's neck. They're the Daria and Jane of superheroes, and it looks like we're going to see a hell of a lot more of them.
