Jessica Jones - AKA The Sandwich Saved Me

With the help of Trish (Rachael Taylor) and Simpson (Wil Traval), Jessica (Krysten Ritter) puts her plan to capture Kilgrave (David Tennant) into action after discovering Malcolm (Eka Darville) is the spy keeping tabs on her for his master. As we've come to expect from seeing the dysfunction of Jessica's life, things don't quite go according to plan.

Very much a middle episode of the show's season-long arc, "AKA The Sandwich Saved Me" features Jessica tilting at windmills and failing to stop the villain. The episode also gives us a glimpse of Jessica pre-Kilgrave as well as the first encounter between the two which would forever changes her life. Continuing the show's dark nature Jessica's failure isn't complete without Kilgrave gloating and coercing the object of his obsession into performing a small, but intrusive, act every day to keep her friends safe from his influence.
