Police Detective

Kilgrave's Control

"There's a few of us here who remember what Kilgrave did in this precinct. I had nightmares of holding my own gun to my head. The feeling of my finger on the trigger."
"I recommend hypnosis."
"I didn't need that, because, uh, the dreams stopped the day you took that asshole out."
―Eddy Costa and Jessica Jones[src]

Eddy Costa was working at the office when Kilgrave took control of everyone in it. He was forced to place his pistol next to his head, with his finger on the trigger. He sat this way until Kilgrave left, finally allowing him to put his pistol away. This encounter with Kilgrave gave him nightmares, which continued until the moment Jessica Jones murdered Kilgrave.[1]

Murder of Robert Coleman

"Victim's name was Robert Coleman. Ever heard of him?"
"He came to me. He wanted to hire me, but I was booked."
"How shitty must you feel? Guy comes to you for help and winds up dead around the corner from you."
―Eddy Costa and Jessica Jones[src]

"You want to go it alone, that's your call. But there's a lot of people on the force that wanna see you locked up."
"And you're the only white hat in a sea of black hats."
"Not the only one."
―Eddy Costa and Jessica Jones[src]

Eddy Costa was a wise and honorable man, as Jessica Jones considered the only "white hat in a sea of black hats." After being brainwashed by Kilgrave, he suffered from nightmares of losing his free will until Jones killed him. Afterward, Costa believed that Jessica was a good person, and believed that he owed a debt since she had ridden the world of Kilgrave. Despite this, Costa was still lawful, as he and the police went on a hunt for Alisa Jones due to her killing his partner Ruth Sunday. Losing Sunday had a great effect on him, as he refused to listen to Jessica on the police going to kill her mother, stating that she killed "one of their own".


"Maybe leave the heroics to, uh, trained professionals who are committed to the rule of law and subject to oversight."
―Eddy Costa to Jessica Jones[src]

  • Glock 19: Costa pulled his service gun to arrest Jessica Jones for the murder of Nick Spanos once she realized she had returned to the scene. Costa did not give her a chance to leave, and Jones surrendered in shock for the scene. Costa, his partner Ruth Sunday and the officers under his command also took their weapons to follow a lead on their wanted killer to the Malus Residence; and then both detectives took them to the hospital in order to stop Alisa Jones, with Sunday even shooting at her leg, but she was unable to prevent her from escaping, dying in the attempt. Once Costa was reinstated into the NYPD during the investigation of Gregory Sallinger, he and and a group of officers entered into the Alias Investigations Office with their guns ready to arrest Sallinger, finding him tied up on the floor, and with his a recording of his confession playing in a loop.
