When Sallinger posts a video teasing his next crime, Jessica responds with her own media play. Jeri demands that Malcolm identify the masked woman.

Original air date: 6/14/19

Is there a reason why Jessica didn't play Sallinger's message about killing someone by 7:00 during the live TV interview (I thought she was going to when she recorded it on the other phone)? NYPD has tape of his voice and could easily match it to the recording.

Trish is a real pain in the ass.   I used to like her in Season 1.   Now I want to see her own foolishness get her killed.

And that's exactly how I feel. I could not care less about what happened in this episode and actually feel a little bit gleeful about it. It's not exactly poetic justice but I kept thinking how would she feel if someone did to her what she did to Jess. Ha ha ha.

Figured Dorothy was a goner as soon as she started actually helping the duo, and even had Jessica warming up to her (briefly!)  While the character was always obnoxious, I will miss Rebecca De Mornay camping it up here.

Really though, I know it was suppose to be a big moment, but I honestly felt like both Jessica and Trish were just made to look like idiots.  There were just so many moments where I felt like there were obvious, smarter paths they could have taken, but Jessica just had to bulldoze her a way in like a bull in a China shop, while Trish tagged along all "I'm a superhero now!"  It's not like I even find Sallinger intelligent at this point, but they're just being daft.  Good thing they never faced the likes of Fisk.

Jeri's gone full-blown against Jessica now, after finding out Trish/the vigilante broke in.  Sure, why not?  Considering how it feels like they don't know how to use her this season, just go ahead and maker a full-fledge bad guy now.

I should have figured that Dorothy was going to get killed too with how much time they spent on her and as pointed out, even Jessica warming to her.  Rebecca De Mornay was great fun in this role.

It's not exactly Jessica's finest moment but Trish just seems to be getting dumber by the moment and more obnoxious.  I'm sorry to lose the Dorothy character but Trish needs the arrogance, selfishness and stupidity slapped out of her.

The NYPD is also looking stupid on this show by allowing Sallinger to slip out which I can't see happening.

I really have more blame on them than Trish. Jessica basically did their entire job. 

Well I was surprised!

I should have known that Dorothy was doomed the second she started actually being helpful and supportive, and even she and Jessica had some nice moments. That death she had looked brutal, I cant really blame Trish for freaking out. I mean, I can blame Trish for being an awful superhero who is making everything a million times harder for Jessica because of her need for attention to be told how special she is, but thats at least understandable.

How is Salinger considered some kind of leading citizen in his hometown, or any kind of respectable person anywhere? He either comes off as an obvious creeper serial killer with a murder basement or a smug self important asshole who brags about doing the crossword puzzles with a pen in every single scene.

I don't think that he is considered a leading citizen, but if you didn't know about his secret life as we do, all you would see is a kind of nerdy guy with several college degrees (though I have my doubts about whether they are real) who volunteers as a wrestling coach for kids in the community. Plus, his hometown may have had sympathy for him and his family because of this brother's accident.

Maybe it is just because I watched Foxcatcher a few week ago but wrestling coach is something that I now instantly associate with creepy.

Also I had to laugh about how much media coverage The Masked Vigilante was getting as if any media outlet in the MCU would care. I doubt there is some newspaper editor saying how they are tired of writing stories about the Avengers and Spider-Man and Ant-Man and SHIELD and Daredevil. And when reporters are asked what else they have someone says they have a story about a woman who can jump off a bridge, and they decide to put that on the front page.

I was thinking the same thing, but then remembered Dorothy (maybe Trish) explaining the social media videos only have a certain amount of views and then poof... deleted.

And Trish... your heart is in the right place, but who the hell knows where your brain is?
