The banner shows Jessica (played by Krysten Ritter) standing at the sink of a public bathroom, appearing to wash blood from her hands. An injured man (whose injuries were most likely caused by Jessica) lays in the background, while a woman with red high heels sits in a stall. On the doors of the stalls are an array of graffiti, including the tagline "Fight Like a Woman."
While the banner itself raises a few questions (Is the bathroom gender neutral? Are those red shoes in the corner belonging to Trish Walker (Rachael Taylor)? Does the other graffiti reveal some sort of hidden Easter eggs?), it also hammers home the sort of focus of season two. The newest installment will focus on Jessica's previous traumas throughout her life, both in the experiments that gave her her superpowers, and in the ongoing PTSD she has from Kilgrave (David Tennant).
"I think that hit me in such a profound way, that Jessica Jones was so much more than a great acting part." Ritter said of the show's impact on survivors of abuse during a recent interview. "I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is the first character like this we’ve seen, especially in the form of a superhero, especially in the form of a leading lady, who looks like this, who acts like this, who doesn’t really give a shit about how she looks.'”
