Jessica‘s undercover assignment for Carol Danvers concludes in Jessica Jones #6 with a couple of quick twists, and some unexpected fallout for Jessica. Pretending to throw in with the enemy, Carol is captured and beaten – just what’s needed to get the villain to monologue and spill her super-secret plans. With the villains in custody and Jessica free from the mission that destroyed her life (well, destroyed it more), the heroine is left to pick up the pieces. This won’t be easy now that Luke has their daughter and doesn’t want anything to do with his wife.

Jessica Jones #5 leaves Jessica‘s secret undercover mission, and her drama with Luke Cage (although we do get an interlude with Luke and Ben Urich), to focus back on the case she involving a scared client who should couldn’t save from her homicidal husband. Sitting down with the man, who turned himself in and asked for Jessica specifically, our normally tough-as-nails private eye gets her world rocked by a kind of crazy that makes more and more sense the longer the man explains his actions and view of the world.

Relying a common comic book device, Jessica Jones #4 offers a twist to Jessica Jones‘ downward spiral (and explains why the circumstances which caused it haven’t been discussed until now). It seems that Jessica didn’t actually have some kind of breakdown, freak-out, or blow-up. Instead she’s spent the past few months undercover for Carol Danvers in hopes of uncovering a secret network of people who hate super-heroes to an extreme degree.

Life gets no less complicated for Jessica Jones. After being abducted by the Spot, Jessica awakes in a dingy basement, shackled to a chair. Following a little verbal sparring with the super-villain, Jessica is allowed to meet the woman in charge who doesn’t threaten her. Instead, “Alison” admits to working behind the scenes to procure her release from prison and then offers Jessica a job. For a mysterious figure working for questionable sources, she does make a fairly good argument.

After others had tried and failed to get answers out of her, Luke Cage confronts Jessica Jones for answers about their missing child.

Given the popularity of the Netflix series it’s no big surprise that Marvel Comics has chosen to re-ream writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Gaydos whose Alias comic series provided the foundation for Netflix’s Jessica Jones. I’ve lost track of the character in recent years, so I was a bit surprised by the comic’s opening in which Jessica is released from maximum security prison without much detail of what she was incarcerated for or what earned her an early release.

With the help of Trish (Rachael Taylor) and Simpson (Wil Traval), Jessica (Krysten Ritter) puts her plan to capture Kilgrave (David Tennant) into action after discovering Malcolm (Eka Darville) is the spy keeping tabs on her for his master. As we’ve come to expect from seeing the dysfunction of Jessica’s life, things don’t quite go according to plan.

While using Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) to find others who Kilgrave (David Tennant) has used in hopes of finding a lead to the villain’s location Jessica (Krysten Ritter) takes on a new client (Jessica Hecht) who has ulterior motives for hiring the super-powered detective. It becomes official when her client tries to lure Jessica into a trap to kill her (and the crazy woman isn’t even under Kilgrave’s influence), Jessica Jones has the worst luck with clients. The speech a wounded Ms. Jones gives to her would-be killers is where the episode gets it’s name, although it’s unclear whether the number she comes up with is real or an exaggeration meant to frighten her client into leaving town.
