IN REVIEW: JESSICA JONES: PLAYING WITH FIRE – EPISODE 6 – Fake it till You Make It

Jessica pays a visit to the Nova Naledi Building.

Synopsis: Jessica pays a visit to the Nova Naledi Building.

 

The Story

Having been banned from The Hellfire Club. Jessica has to take an alternative route in her investigation into the death of Jamie. So opts to pay a visit to Nova Naledi, which is the company and building that looks after the artistic and powered kids that work at the Hellfire. While there she talks to a few of the kids and finds that not all of them though good things about Jamie, but it isn’t until after she talks to Diane. The person in charge that she gets a true idea of what Nova Naledi is about. By the time she leaves, Jessica gets an unexpected hunch, which is triggered by a mural.

 

The Narration

Fryda Wolff continues her brilliant narration, which continues to channel a classic feeling of a film noir detective drama. The exchanges between Jessica and Diane are the stand out moment of this chapter as we get, the rough around the edges questioning from Jessica driven up against a very composed and in control Diane who is able to placate Jessica while answering her questions.

 

Overall

Another solid outing, which gives us a little more insight into the kind of life that young Jamie was trying to carve out for himself before his tragic end. We are still none the wiser as to if he intentionally took his own life or not. But we do know that some of the kids at Nova Naledi didn’t think as highly of him as we first suspected.

The exchanges between Jessica Jones and Diane the person in charge at Nova Naledi are easily the highlight of this chapter. But we are left with a few questions in regards to why Diane is helping these kids. We learn that she had a sister who died too soon, which is part of it. But we still do not have an idea of what the bigger picture is and whether it has any connection to the Hell Fire Club and Shaun.
