JJ (Krysten Ritter) has a ruthless new villain to contend with in the form of Gregory Salinger, played by Jeremy Bobb. In the comics, Gregory Salinger is the second iteration of the character Foolkiller, who was first put on the page in Marvel’s Man-Thing comics. The comics depict him as a mentally unstable man who goes after people, including those the public deems heroes, that he finds guilty of materialism and mediocrity.
“You can’t control yourself,” he tells Jessica here. “You have no discipline, just brute force.” He’s not shy about what his desire, either. “I want you to die.”
The new season also finds Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor) escalating her vigilante activities, Jeri Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) defending Salinger (much to JJ’s displeasure), and of course our lead character has her usual personal demons to contend with. One thing’s for sure, as further solidified by Netflix’s logline for the season: “Jessica Jones is not and never will be a hero. Learn the truth on June 14th. ”
Synopsis for Jessica Jones season 3:
When Jessica (Krysten Ritter) crosses paths with a highly intelligent psychopath, she and Trish (Rachael Taylor) must repair their fractured relationship and team up to take him down. But a devastating loss reveals their conflicting ideas of heroism and sets them on a collision course that will forever change them both.
