"You wanted to know how many of us there are? The last time I counted, I had 99 gifted friends in this borough alone. And now every single one of them is gonna know about this shit that you tried to pull."

While researching who could be the photo-taking spy for Kilgrave, Jessica Jones receives a case from Audrey Eastman, a jewelry designer who became rich after her mother died; Eastman wants to know if her husband, Carlo, is having an affair when he leaves work on Friday nights. Jones takes the case but wonders if Eastman is enthralled. She follows Eastman around for a while and learns her backstory, but the only thing of some slight importance is that Eastman goes into a warehouse and has target practice with her gun.

Meanwhile, Trish Walker is frightened after her near death experience; she becomes more so when Police Sergeant Will Simpson returns and attempts to knock down the door of her apartment. Jones arrives and realizes that Simpson is concerned about her and wants to make amends for his attack. Though Jones explains to him that he was not responsible, Simpson insists on helping to find Kilgrave.

Jones has Walker go on the air at WNEX Station and publicly apologize to Kilgrave for insulting him, in hopes that that will keep him from having her attacked again.


Jeri Hogarth, after having an awkward confrontation with her wife when Hogarth attempted to take Pam out to lunch, calls Jones with an emergency; Jones arrives to discover that the office of Hogarth, Chao & Benowitz is flooded with people who want to prove that Kilgrave used his power on them. Jones says that she is too busy to deal with this, but Hogarth reminds her that she is in her debt. Hogarth, Jones, and a cameraman interview each person to determine who was used and who was just seeking an excuse for their own inappropriate behaviors. Ultimately, this creates the Kilgrave Victim Support Group.

Jones asks Simpson for police surveillance footage of certain places to find commonality, but the process is long. While taking a break, a child calls to Jones and tells her that Kilgrave has forgiven Walker. Before regaining her senses, the child tells Jones to do her job since it is Friday.

Jones bluffs that she is bulletproof but Audrey sees through it and shoots her in the arm. Audrey explains to a very confused Jones that "gifted people" caused the death of her mother by allowing "the incident" to happen. Getting angry, Jones states that she had nothing to do with "the incident" and she should go after the "big green guy" or the "flag waver" instead. Audrey merely replies that she should consider it a "preventative measure for next time". With those words, Jones is pushed over the edge and loses herself in a fit of rage, calling the Eastmans out for thinking they're the only ones with pain. She reveals that she's the same as Audrey; she lost her own parents in an accident, but she does not blame anyone else for what happened. After calming down, she lies to the Eastmans that she has 99 friends who are gifted and will hurt her if they do not leave New York City. The Eastmans flee.

Meanwhile, Simpson brings Walker an illegal gun to protect herself. The two talk and a friendship develops.

Jones begins to ask him questions and learns that Kilgrave would always meet a man in a blue scarf at ten o'clock sharp. Comparing the footage and the testimony, Jones finds the photographer, Malcolm Ducasse.
