Season 1 spoiler warning
Kilgrave was a fan favorite villain of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he outsmarted, manipulated, and tormented anyone that got in his path during season one of Jessica Jones. At the end of the season, Jones snapped Kilgrave’s neck and it seemed as though he was dead for good, so this image has fans asking a few questions. Throughout the show, Jessica would have hallucinations of Kilgrave whispering in her ear triggered by PTSD. Could she still be struggling with this in season 2? Could he be appearing in flashbacks? This is a universe that has shown that people can be brought back from the dead, so it is important to keep an open mind to all possibilities.
There is no specific release date given for season 2 of Jessica Jones, but everyone’s favorite super powered PI will star in The Defenders along with Daredevil, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist on August 18th on Netflix.
