Jessica Jones - AKA 99 Friends

While using Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) to find others who Kilgrave (David Tennant) has used in hopes of finding a lead to the villain's location Jessica (Krysten Ritter) takes on a new client (Jessica Hecht) who has ulterior motives for hiring the super-powered detective. It becomes official when her client tries to lure Jessica into a trap to kill her (and the crazy woman isn't even under Kilgrave's influence), Jessica Jones has the worst luck with clients. The speech a wounded Ms. Jones gives to her would-be killers is where the episode gets it's name, although it's unclear whether the number she comes up with is real or an exaggeration meant to frighten her client into leaving town.

Along with the creation of the survivor's support group "AKA 99 Friends" also marks the return of Officer Will Simpson (Wil Traval) who hopes to both help Jessica find Kilgrave and make amends to Trish (Rachael Taylor). The later creates an unexpected relationship between the pair which will last for several episodes. Thanks to the group, and surveillance footage Simpson is able to supply, Jessica is able to determine the person (Eka Darville) shadowing her for Kilgrave in a revelation that breaks her heart but will give her a new lead to track down the evil mastermind.
