Realm Review: Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10

Every Action Has A Reaction In Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10

Jessica’s determination has kept this case going, even when others would have walked away. In Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10, she’s about to start making confrontations, all for the sake of getting answers.

Last we saw, Jessica Jones had formed a plan, and while it took some sneaking, she was well on her way to moving forward with it. While it’s a plan that came with high risks, it also promised heavy rewards; in the form of evidence.

Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire is an ongoing series on Serial Box. It’s one of three Marvel series available, with the other two boasting complete and binge-worthy seasons. Next up on the list will be Black Panther.

Newton’s Third Law

Sam Beckbessinger is still at the helm for Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10. This is an intense episode, from start to finish. It starts like any of Jessica’s missions for evidence but very quickly ends up being something over her head.

This series has done a lot to showcase Jessica’s continuing battle for mental health while facing off against the worst that humanity has to offer. All of that seems to hit a peak in this episode as she comes across a brick wall in her investigation.

There are still six episodes left to this season, yet the pieces are already starting to fall into place. The how and why have yet to be explained, but give Jessica some time, and she’ll get there. That’s kind of what she does, after all.

Everything has been leading up to this point, and the action that followed. If you’ve put two and two together about the antagonists, then the thought of another fight here might induce a cringe (for Jessica’s sake). Still, that only served to add to the tension of it all.

I’m going to be honest with you here: the cliffhanger at the end of this episode is brutal. Like, I keep checking the calendar to see how far off the next episode is, sort of brutal. It was brilliant but also anxiety-inducing. Consider yourself warned.


The narration never fails to impress, which goes doubly so in Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10. Fryda Wolff has not only nailed Jessica’s voice but many of the other characters as well. It’s wonderfully done.

She flawlessly carried on a conversation between two characters, and never once did it feel like she was talking to herself. No, it was two distinct characters parrying words back and forth, full of sass, snap, and so much more.

Then there’s the action sequence in this episode, which is raw and tense – and made all the more so courtesy of the sound effects included in the background. It was brutal to hear, but for all the right reasons, if that makes sense.


 Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 10 is arguably one of the most dramatic additions to the series. Though arguably, I’m partially saying that because the ending has left me utterly anxious for the next part of the story.

This entire series has quickly become my favorite of the bunch, which is saying something (I adored the Black Widow series). Everything about this is perfect for fans of Jessica Jones, especially those that loved Alias.
