This Daredevil/Jessica Jones Crossover
Did you catch the name of the officer that uncuffs Jessica Jones and lets her go before turning a gun on Detective Clemons? The officer was Sargent Mahoney, a character that was originally introduced in Daredevil. He was the guy who was not-so-easily bribed by Foggy, who knew that his mother had a taste for expensive cigars.
"Trish" Is Actually a Lot More Than Meets the Eye
Jessica's adopted sister, Patricia Walker, goes by the nickname "Trish" in TV series. Trish is a former child star trying to escape the baggage of her past, and covers up her identity with this nickname. If you've read the comics, however, you know that "Trish" also goes by Patsy Walker, and is the alter-ego of the feline-esque superhero, Hellcat.
Those Two Heart Monitors Are There for a Reason
The slow drip of evidence that Simpson is "Nuke" continues with this scene in the hospital, where we see that he is hooked up to two separate heart monitors. The character Nuke actually has two functioning hearts, allowing him to achieve - and maintain - superhuman levels of physicality.
The Opening Scene is Ripped Straight from the Comic
Our introduction to Jessica Jones and her life as a detective/alcoholic/superhero is ripped straight from the pages of the comic book. An almost shot-for-shot, word-for-word scene shows Jessica throwing a disgruntled customer through her door. This sets the tone perfectly for both the comic and the show, and the director and producers did a great job of capturing those feelings onscreen.
