In Review: Jessica Jones: Playing with Fire Episode 8 – My Door is Always Open (Now)

Jessica embarks on a Brooklyn adventure to figure out the passcode for Jamie’s phone.

Synopsis: Jessica embarks on a Brooklyn adventure to figure out the passcode for Jamie’s phone. But she isn’t the only one interested in him.

 

The Story

In an effort to learn the password to Jamie’s phone in the hopes that it will provide her with a lead to whether or not he actually overdosed or was murdered. Jessica heads to Brooklyn, but upon arrival finds that she is running into a dead end. But things take a turn for the worse when a hulking figure turns up on the scene to make life difficult for her.

 

The Narration

Fryda Wolff continues to provide brilliant narration as Jessica heads off to Brooklyn to continue her investigation. This is yet another holding episode that finishes with a second meeting between Jessica and Shaw. But the build-up to that confrontation is full of atmosphere as Jessica asks various people if they had encountered Jamie or Brandon. The final 2 minutes are where the action is really at in terms of the story. I look forward to hearing next week’s chapter, which am hoping will provide a few answers.

 

Overall

Zoe Quinn writers another get chapters worth of exposition, which sees Jessica having to try and avoid Shaw and his club in order to try and get a lead via Jamie’s mobile phone, which unfortunately leads her to more roadblocks Fryda Wolf continues to provide brilliant narration for the action and has the voice of Jessica Jones down to an absolute T. Most of this episode does pretty much see Jessica going from one person to the next to ask questions and doesn’t really offer up any brilliant leads.

It is only the last two minutes of the episode, which gives us a pretty big clue as to who has something to hide. The person that Jessica has been ordered to stay away from.

Overall. A solid episode in spite of the fact that it is mostly made up of exposition.
