In Episode 7, titled "A.K.A The Double Half Wappinger", Jessica and her sister Trish Walker, who is a stranger, travel to Wappinger Falls, the small town where Big Bad this season was raised. Having reached a dead end at Hell's Kitchen, without any substantial evidence of being able to arrest Salinger for murder, Jessica and Trish head to her hometown, hoping to find some breadcrumbs that will lead to one of the first murders of Salinger.

Sick of their discovery, Jessica and Trish return to New York. Jessica tracks down Salinger in an intermediate school where he trains the fight.

"She should not have done that. It was not the right decision to make, "she says. "And that's part of his superhero career: making mistakes, not knowing what to do."
The creator of the series, Melissa Rosenberg, shares the opinion of Ritter, explaining that it is the "classic Jessica" that allows the heroine to impulsively humiliate an enemy, regardless of the long-term consequences.
"It's part of the pleasure of watching her. She'll probably do the wrong thing, but there's something really satisfying about it, "shares Rosenberg. "[Salinger] control everything, and he did not [control] in this situation, and this triggers it. It makes things worse. But at that moment, she had this thing. "(With the stories of Scott Huver)
