Spoiler warning: If you’re trying to avoid spoilers for Jessica Jones, I’d suggest you stop reading now as the below descriptions are rather revealing.
A while back, thanks to a user on Reddit, possible episode titles for the first season of Jessica Jones made their way online. Interestingly enough, although the show had removed the “AKA” from its title, the episode titles kept the abbreviation. Now, with the show set to release later this month, it looks as though we have official episode titles along with episode descriptions, and it looks as though there are plenty of surprises in store this season.

AKA Smile: Jessica and Luke get help from someone else in the neighborhood (DAREDEVIL HYPE). Kilgrave gears up for a major test of powers against Jessica. http://www.netflix.com/title/80002324
What’s interesting is that most of the original leaked titles were actually accurate, although there have been some changes. (If you’ll notice, there’s no longer an episode titled “AKA Jewel & the Power Man”.) But I kind of love the episode titles, especially “AKA Sin Bin”. I love that they’ve kept the AKA in front of them, and that they do a good job at really capturing a sense of both the character and the tone the series will more than likely have.
Even still, while the titles are more than interesting, the descriptions should be enough to get fans even more excited for the series. Much like was the case with Wilson Fisk in Daredevil, it looks as though there will be enough focus on David Tennant‘s Kilgrave to allow him to serve as a truly menacing presence throughout the series. Not to mention it seems as though there will be plenty of Trish and Luke, along with a potential confirmation that Daredevil will be making his way to Jessica Jones with the season finale’s description teasing the help of “someone else from the neighborhood”. Although, it’s entirely possible that someone else could also be Trish suiting up as Hellcat. Either way, I can’t wait to see what Jessica Jones has to offer later this month!
The first season of Jessica Jones will hit Netflix on November 20th!
