JESSICA JONES Season 2 Trailer Teases the Purple Man's Return
Everyone, please give a slow clap for the return of the Purple Man.
Netflix has released a new trailer for the second season of Jessica Jones, the Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series based on the Marvel Comics character and starring Krysten Ritter.
The two-minute, five-second trailer opens with a flashback to the auto accident that killed Jessica's parents and brother while she was a teenager. We see the modern-day Jessica drinking in Josie's Bar, the dive bar featured in the series Daredevil, and smashing another glass on the bar after emptying it.
"Third glass tonight," remarks Josie.
"Put it on my tab," replies Jessica.
"You drinking to remember or forget?" asks Josie as she pours Jessica another glass.
"Giving a shit won't get you a better tip."
We start to hear the song "Runaway" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs as Jessica begins speaking to her foster sister Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor). "My whole family was killed in a car acccident, someone did horrific experiments on me, and now this super vigilante shit keeps coming at me."
A kid asks Jessica, "Do you know Captain America?", then we see an Asian man with arm tattoos telling Jessica and her assistant Malcolm Ducasse (Eka Darville), "I wanna absorb Alias Investigations."
"You don't want me," Jessica says to the man. "You just want to eliminate the competition."
"I never take 'No' for an answer."
"How rapey of you," replies Jessica.
The scene cuts to Jessica researching a personal case, tacking up photos and death certificates on a wall to study them. "Something happened behind these doors," Jessica remarks in a voiceover. "I have seventeen years of questions and they are deep."
"Just knowing what was done to you might help you," says Trish.
We see Jessica pushing open a set of chained cell doors, with Trish by her side. "We were made here," Jessica says in a voiceover. "Me...and something else. The only way to find it is to open the door wider."
An unknown older woman tells Jessica, "You were brought back from the dead. The powers were a side-effect."
"How many others are there?" asks Jessica. "Like me?"
"There is a killer you can't control," remarks Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) in a separate scene.
"I didn't ask for any of this," says Jessica in a voiceover.
"Jessica might not want a sidekick," remarks Trish in a voiceover, "but she needs one."
"You're not super," says the Asian man from earlier to Jessica. "You're a ticking time bomb."
Jessica steps forward to confront him. "Keep telling me who I am, how dare you?"
We see Jessica trying to punch a door to a police holding room as she says in a voiceover, "What if facing it makes me worse?"
In a different scene, Malcolm watches Jessica leave her apartment building. "What are you gonna do?" he asks.
"I don't know," replies Jessica. "Depends if I can get through the night without losing my shit."
We see fleeting images of Jessica kicking open a door, looking a small fragments of rubble covering her arms, and being arrested by the police. As Jessica finds a decaying human skull while Trish looks on in horror, Jessica remarks in a voiceover, "It takes a monster to stop a monster."
"What did they do to us?" asks Jessica in a voiceover as we see purple lighting fall over her.
A familiar slow clap follows, presumably from Kilgrave the Purple Man (David Tennant) who is somehow alive after being killed off toward the end of Season 1.
