Jessica Jones Binge-Watch & Blog-Along (Part Five: Ep 13 & Post-Mortem)

Well, it’s official.  I survived my Jessica Jones marathon.  I started at 4 am Friday, November 20th and finished around 1:30 am Saturday, November 21st.  Considering I took time to write a blog snippet after each episode and took breaks to run errands, eat meals, etc., I made pretty good time!  Still counts as a #OneDayJJ success 😉
