Jessica Jones. It's been a great run for this series, but unfortunately, we all know that there's only going to be one more season (for now). There's still so much that this series could cover, and very little time to do it with. We can only hope that the show got more warning than Luke Cage did, so that it didn't leave us on a cliffhanger.There are definitely things we're hoping to see in the third season.
Some of these things are basically musts, while others would be nice – for the sake of the fans – to see. Here are just a few of the things we're hoping will be resolved in the last (for now) season.
10 Her Love Life
The end of season two of Jessica Jones left out conflicted heroine having a nice supper with Oscar and his son. It has been really wonderful to see Jess open up to somebody. Especially considering her friendship with Trish is on the rocks.
The question is, how long is this relationship going to last? And if it doesn't last, what exactly is the cause for it ending? There's a classic plot they could pull from the comics here, but we don't exactly know if they'll do that. And we would really like to know for sure!
9 Her Family Life
Okay, so that one is a bit of a misnomer. Season two's main plot ended alongside the death of Jess' mom. Even though Jess had been fighting her mother for the better part of this season, it was still surely an extremely traumatic moment for our heroine.
One has to wonder, how much will her mother's last words affect her? “Hero isn’t a bad word, Jessica. It’s just someone who gives a shit and does something about it.” Now that there's been time for them to sink in, will we be seeing any changes? Perhaps Jess will try and do more, be better. Or maybe she'll come to terms with it and finally find a semblance of peace.
8 Jess & Trish Reunite
One can only hope that these two will find a way to become friends again. That is obviously going to be easier said than done. Season two did nothing but dig a deep chasm between these two. And it certainly didn't help that Trish took it upon herself to kill Jess' mother. Regardless of it if it was the right thing to do, that's got to put a damper on any friendship.
The question is, can Jess see past that? She's gone through a lot in her life. But that pain could make her just as likely to turn away from Trish, as to forgive her. No matter what the choice is, we're hoping for some closure between these two before the season is over with.
7 Hellcat Evolution
Speaking of Trish, with any luck we'll see her actually doing something with her powers. We know she has them, and at this point, she knows it too. The question is, what exactly is she going to do about it?
In the comics, Trish becomes Hellcat – an agile hero with some psychic boosts. Will we see Trish take on the Hellcat mantle? Or at least take a few steps towards it? Trish has always been a little bit jealous of Jess – even if she never wanted to admit it – and has always wanted Jess to do more with her abilities. Now's her chance to put her money where her mouth is.
6 Malcolm and Betrayal
Even our secondary characters have been facing a lot of changes, thanks to season two. Last we saw of Malcolm, he had left Jess' firm joining Pryce Cheng's investigative firm. You might remember him as the guy that went up against Jessica Jones in the last season.
Admittedly, Malcolm has a lot of room to grow with his investigative abilities, and switching firms to one that'll help him cultivate those skills isn't a bad call. Though there will likely be personal fallout for this – granted said personal fallout is more or less the reason he left in the first place. We would like to see what happens with Malcolm during this switch. How Cheng treats him, if he sends Malcolm after Jess, etc. There are so many different ways this could play out.
5 Hogarth's Health
Hogarth had a rough season two. She was diagnosed with ALS and did not cope with the news well. Not that anybody really blames her for that. However, the end of the season brought us a renewed Hogarth – one who was willing to fight for what was hers and take down anybody in her path.
Will Hogarth still be fighting the good fight? And if so, will she continue to employ Jessica from time to time? Jess sort of needs a lawyer to help her out, so their continued relationship is somewhat important. Especially since if Hogarth isn't part of Jess' life anymore, it leaves from for another lawyer to step in.
4 Luke Cage
Oh, Luke Cage. How we wish his series didn't end on a cliffhanger. We have so many questions left about his character, and there's a chance we can get some of them through Jessica Jones.
For example, these two are famously a couple in the comics. So if that was ever going to happen in the Netflix series, it has to happen now or forever hold its peace. Then there's the question of Luke's character changes and his new...er...job. It'd be nice to hear something conclusive about all of that.
3 The Defenders
The Defenders only got one season, and that was for a couple of different reasons. However, all of these characters have officially met. Will we be seeing all or any of the other Defenders in Jessica Jones season three? It would be nice to see the time have one last hurrah, so to speak.
There are reasons and excuses for both Luke Cage and Matt Murdock to get involved in Jessica's series and life. They're not even that much of a stretch, either. Iron Fist may be a bit more difficult, but it's doable. Some closure for the team, and for Jessica's involvement in the team, would be fantastic. Especially since the last Jessica heard, Matt had died at the end of their epic battle.
2 Taking On IGH
The whole series has shown Jessica slowly learning about what really happened to her. All of what she's learned has directly pointed back to IGH. Yet we have yet to see Jessica directly go after this monster of a corporation. Not yet.
If Jessica truly took on IGH – and won – it would give the series the send-off it deserves. And it would give the fans answers to many of the questions we've been asking all these years.
1 The Snap?
One thing we're looking forward to seeing is how Jessica Jones will handle the Snap. It was the biggest moment in MCU history, yet we have no idea how the series will handle it. There are a few ways they could do this. They could set the season in a point in time before the Snap actually occurred. It wouldn't be that hard.Or they could just ignore it completely. Including that moment would make for the most interesting content, of course, but it would also take a lot of extra work for the series.
No matter the choice, it'll be interesting to see how they handle it. Especially seeing as this will most likely be the final Netflix/Marvel production we will ever see.
