Jessica Jones Season 2
The only major plot thread left hanging was the mysterious organization IGH, which not only supplied Will Simpson with his Combat Enhancers (more on that later), but also paid Jessica’s medical bills following the car crash that killed her mother, father and brother. It’s still unclear whether they were the ones who caused the crash or if they even somehow gave her those special abilities, but there’s definitely a connection, and now that Trish has those files she received from her mother, she and Jessica should be able to dig up some information. These folks are too important not to follow up on. Maybe IGH was also connected to the experiments that Kilgrave’s parents were running on him and other children.
Season 2 will also continue to explore her struggling with her inner demons. While it’s doubtful she’ll ever fully embrace being a superhero, maybe she can at least move closer to feeling more at peace with the world.
Daredevil Season 3:
Ideologically, he conflicted with Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher, and Elektra Natchios. Both pushed him to kill in the line of duty, with the former saying it was the only way to make a true difference against crime and the latter saying that he needed to welcome the darkness inside of him.
He’ll try to restore the balance between his nighttime activities and his personal relationships. He also now fully understands the value of working with others, which will definitely play into his future crime fighting endeavors, as we’ll talk about later.
Game Of Thrones Season 7
In the North, Lyanna Mormont spoke out about Jon Snow’s bastard status and rallied the other bannermen in the North to support Snow. Meanwhile, Bran found another weirdwood tree and was able to see the next vision–which explained much more about Jon Snow’s parentage, including that he is the son of Lyanna Stark and not Ned’s. Meanwhile, Littlefinger declared his love for Sansa, which she coolly brushed off, but I’m not so sure she’s happy about everyone rallying behind Jon Snow. Also in the North, Sansa revealed that winter has finally come.
This leads us to Daenerys Targaryen, who finally headed toward Westeros, with Theon and Yara Greyjoy in tow. She left Daario behind, but took her ships and her Dothraki and Unsullied armies with her on the ships the Greyjoys and Meereenese had brought. All in all, “The Winds Of Winter” was an eventful episode, and it sets Game of Thrones up for more exciting stuff to come
