With little under three weeks to go until her anticipated debut, Netflix has published the synopses for each and every episode of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, giving us some indication of the kind of journey that awaits Krysten Ritter’s title heroine come November 20.
Much like the logline for the show itself, these teasing snippets are really rather vague, skating around plot specifics as they offer a chapter-by-chapter breakdown of the company’s all-new original series. But be warned, there are a few details lurking within each description that could be treated as spoilers, so tread carefully after the jump.

Paying homage to her turbulent past, each installment of Marvel’s 13-episode run is prefaced with AKA, referencing the character’s all-too-brief stint operating as a superhero within the dark underbelly of Hell’s Kitchen. As a matter of fact, there’s a direct nod to Charlie Cox’s appearance as Daredevil, with the season finale hinting that both Jessica Jones and Luke Cage will be forced out of their way to “help from someone else in the neighborhood.” Is that someone Cox’s Man Without Fear?
Beyond that, though, it’s clear that the main arc of the series will revolve around Jessica’s encounter with David Tennant’s gleefully dark and sinister baddie, Kilgrave. Much like the Daredevil/Kingpin dynamic of that series, we expect mind games aplenty when our heroine makes her debut on the platform later this month.
