Episode Title: AKA Shark in the Bathtub, Monster in the Bed
Originally Aired: March 8th, 2018
Superpowered private investigator down! When we left off last week, a sniper had shot Jessica, and her mom was in a murderous rage hell-bent on finding the shooter. This week we get a couple of cases of kidnapping, a career change, a possible cure and a missing Malcolm.
Trish’s arc this season is impressive and will continue to ramp up as she enters the full meltdown phase, but I also find her incredibly annoying. Her obsession and arrogance make me hope Jessica slaps some sense into to her. Unfortunately, Jess is too busy trying to wrangle a mass-murdering mother that she won’t be there to catch Trish when she falls. When Trish gets good news, she attributes it to the inhaler, but now that her supply has run out, I am afraid for her and anyone who cares about her over the lengths she will go to find more.
Jessica has the most roller coaster like experiences this episode. She is nurtured and injured by her mother; she makes plans for her mom’s freedom and incarceration, she commits a felony and stops someone from doing the same thing. As sweet and damaged as Jess is it’s hard to say how this new situation will changer her. She feels less guilty about some issues and more about others so it could be a wash but I imagine she has many dark days ahead.
Alisa Jones was an angry woman long before the experiments that gave her powers. Her trauma loosened her control over her emotions and provided her with the tools to murder almost anyone she wants. I don’t know what conclusion the show will come to, but I have already decided that she can never be trusted. Whether she goes to jail and can continue a relationship with Jess or if she has to die something must end, her freedom or her life.
I hope we get more Jeri next week. Now that Jeri is on the precipice of a cure or knowing that she is a lost cause and it is just a matter of time, Jeri will be fun to watch. Where is Malcolm? Did he go home to visit his parents or is he in rehab or out on a bender after Trish got him to use the inhaler? There are so many questions and possibilities I can’t wait to see what happens next week.
