Extremely uneventful, but a very good final act
28 May 2016 | by Tarx309See all my reviews

Most of this episode was utterly unnecessary - there were barely any plot points and nothing was developed. It was as though the writers wanted to save everything for the finale, and subsequently had nothing to put in this episode. It was dull for the most part, although it was good to see Luke Cage again. Trish's subplot was the worst of it all - it subtracted from the main Kilgrave plot line and didn't interest at all.

However the final act was a large improvement - there was some great action, and great character moments from Jessica, Kilgrave and Luke. Albeit the twist that Luke was actually working for Kilgrave the whole time was laughably predictable, ergo that scene held no levity. The very last moment was very interesting, although slightly held back as the audience knows they wouldn't kill him off at this stage. Altogether an offensively dull episode, that was only slightly helped off the ground by a killer ending.
