We cheer when our heroes give an evil bad guy their much deserved fate. But what happens when our hero has to fight someone who isn’t evil, they are just in our hero’s way? Should more heroes be like Jessica Jones? Should it matter to our hero if the person they are fighting is being mind controlled, or lied to or it is otherwise not their fault? Should it matter to the audience?
Also, this episode is a few days late, because your ethicist faced internet problems, and then has spend this weekend researching the complicated issues that surround spending a weekend playing board games with a bunch of friends at a cabin by a frozen lake. These are the ways I suffer for you, dear fans!
