Her Story Changes The Abuse Narrative
Because trauma is a central theme for the series, the show really puts Jessica's severe post-abuse PTSD into a strong visual context for us as viewers, so we're able to understand what she's going through. It gives viewers a window into what most victims of abuse go through. You know, since they don't have superpowers with which to fight back.

We're able to root for Jessica even more with this understanding, and to cheer from the sidelines as she turns the tables on her abuser. If only this could happen more often IRL.
