Regrouping in Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 14

The tale of one missing persons case is almost to a close, and thus, so is the first season of Jessica’s latest series. Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 14 brings this sassy heroine that much closer to finding the resolution she so desperately craves.

Last we saw, Jessica finally hit the point where she’s willing to bring in a little extra help to get the job done. The stakes are simply too high to do anything else. The question is, what are her allies going to do about it?

Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire is the product of a joint effort between Marvel Comics and Serial Box. The end result is a series provided in both writing and audio. It updates on a weekly basis, with only two episodes left for this particular adventure.

Iron Will

Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 14 was written by Vita Ayala, and they really ran away with it. This is an issue that balances information with action, in all the best ways. While it’s clear that our heroine is still recovering, there’s no doubt that she’s still fully capable. Especially when she has backup.

It’s so satisfying to see everything come together in these final episodes. Hints that were dropped earlier in the season are suddenly important now, as everything is properly tied together. Almost every major plot point has been covered, leaving the resolution free to focus on taking down the bad guys. That is so Jessica’s style, and I personally can’t wait to see how it all goes down. The inclusion of other Marvel characters (both good and bad) has really made the series feel rooted in history, especially for comic book fans.

As for the action provided in this episode? It feels like the tip of the iceberg. After all, there are still two episodes left to wrap things up. And that means there’s still at least one bad guy out there deserving a beating from the one and only Jessica Jones.


Fryda Wolff is still in charge of narration in Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 14, and thank goodness for it. She has done a brilliant job of bringing Jessica’s character to life, including portraying all of the people around her.

There are many audible elements to be found in this episode—everything from the emotion leaking out of the characters, to the stress and impact of a fight. It’s all there, alongside some supporting sound effects. You know, to make the fight feel even more real.

It’s created this perfect storm. If you close your eyes and just listen, it really does feel like the adventure is playing out right in front of you. Pulling mental imagery from both the comics and the Netflix series doesn’t hurt either, naturally.


Jessica Jones: Playing With Fire Episode 14 was a whirlwind of an episode, one that provided moments of extreme tension —alongside some supremely satisfying moments. It’s everything the fans have been waiting for, all while setting the scene for the final few episodes.

It’s hard to believe that this season is almost complete. If we’re lucky, there will be more adventures for Jessica Jones on the horizon. On the bright side, there is at least one more Marvel series set to hit Serial Box. Black Panther: Sins of the King is next up on that list!
