    Stan Lee cameo in ep ten as a bus sign

    References to kilgrave at times with Tennant cameoing in ep 11 as the evil voice in her head urging her to kill again

    Major development for Trish

Does Trish annoy anyone else or is it just me.

    Major developments for Jeri Hogarth

The ALS development was interesting.

    Cameo by Foggy in one episode

    Simpson returns briefly and is dealt with

    Jessica's backstory and origins of her powers are explored​. It seems that she is the successful experiment and of course we get the other person who is the flawed and overamped prototype that Jessica wants to stop but also cannot stop for reasons other than different power levels.

    Jessica appears to get a new boyfriend

    Jessica's reputation with the cops takes some damage and so does her relationship with Trish

    Jeri Hogarth subplot was interesting to an extent but they SERIOUSLY need to ramp the SJW/gay character lifestyle down a few notches. We really do not need to see her having a foursome or trying to hook up with every woman that catches her eye. We get it already, that lifestyle exists and that is fine but stop ramming it into the script so much.

Well I don't mind her or her law partner being gay...I was pretty skeeved out that she slept with that homeless street urchin. That's just gross and risky.

She has the money to get her someone more...top shelf. (one of those hookers in the pre-orgy was pretty homely too IMO)

    Or the fact that one of her law partners is has a wife and kids but is secretly in the closet......enough already.

    Ritter still does well as Jessica and plays the bitter and broken persona quite well.

    No mention of the Defenders, Cage or Daredevil. Some references to the Rand company

Trish is annoying at times and a bit bratty from her Patsy days. IT also doesn't help that her mother wants to keep cashing in on the Patsy legacy and practically selling her daughter to the next hollywood gig.

Clearly her heart isn't in that anymore, and she has a lot of bad memories from the Patsy days which I frankly wouldn't blame her for.

But about 3 episodes into the season 2 was all it took to become convinced that she wants powers. Remember in Season 1 she did take one of Simpsons red pills and was briefly boosted by it. Now she gets her hands on the inhaler which was a milder version of it. Since she can't convince Jessica to stop being so bitter and hero up more, now she wants to be the hero.

She's got the motivation and the combat training but she doesn't have super powers without the inhaler.....until we see that scene at the end of the last episode that shows she did get something from Malus' experiment.

As to Hogarth, again the gay thing isn't the problem in and of itself. It just felt at times like too much "gay pride" was being shoved into the series. I'm all for equal rights, but do we need to see her going off the rails into a gay orgy? Do we really need to see her having a tryst with the homeless girl (love how she set her up for murder). Then in the final episode she is starting to enjoy the company of her yoga instructor. The gay bar scene was brief and was an organic part of the story to set up the fact that the law partner had a secret to be used against him, that is no big deal. But Hogarth was practically all over any woman she met. Tone it down a few notches is all I'm saying. She's a gay and empowered woman. We get, we got it, loud and clear.
