jessica jones spoilers under cut

just need to jot down some thoughts - episode 8 - same tws as the show



there is something deeply, deeply, viscerally sickening about how kilgrave has coerced jessica into place by killing and hurting people, strnagers and people she cares about, while saying 'i want this to be your choice' and 'i won't touch you without your genuine *consent*'

after, you know, previously controlling her into a lot of fucked up things including raping her and making her murder someone, and with the reality that he's caused her ptsd and being around him will never not be harmful to her no matter what

and then the words 'choice' and 'consent' come out of his mouth like. this sounds a lot like how real abusers can be, all the while making big talk about how they're not in control and ultimately good and not responsible etc etc // it's a kind of gaslighting definitely

it also reminds me of how abusers/rapists will use language about consent to shroud themselves and the harm they do

oh my god hogarth is a foil to kilgrave

'because you were kind to me. you were a bastard to everyone else and you were kind to me. i was special.'

and then he touched her anyway
