A while ago, Kilgrave attended a poker game and enthralled the other participants to allow him to win; the resultant pot made him a millionaire. Kilgrave researches the price of a new residence to conquer, having a whole restaurant be quiet so he could read, and comes upon one worth $600,000. Arriving there with a duffle bag filled with money, he convinces, without using his power, the residents of the house to leave within 36 hours by paying them twice the house's worth and having them sign legitimate paperwork.
As Jessica Jones and Malcolm Ducasse contemplate a new plan to capture Kilgrave, Luke Cage knocks and wants to hire Jones to find Antoine Grier, a young man who disappeared when he was given money by his sister Serena to pay his debt to the loan shark Len Sirkes; Cage attempted to find Grier on his own but was unsuccessful. Though the tension between the two was high, to the point of her recommending another detective, Jones took the case nonetheless.
After searching Antoine Grier's Apartment for clues, the two are approached by Sirkes; Sirkes agrees to keep his distance so that he can get his money upon the discovery of the young man.
Jones receives a phone call from Jeri Hogarth that Hope Shlottman has been hospitalized. Visiting Shlottman, Jones learns that she hired another inmate to assault her in hopes that it would cause a miscarriage. Jones tells Shlottman to allow her to handle her unwanted pregnancy.
Cage visits Jones at the Alias Investigations Office, after learning from Ducasse her past and struggles with Kilgrave, and asks her if he can make amends for whatever caused their breakup; Jones admits that he did nothing wrong. The two consummate their renewed relationship. Afterwards, Cage reveals that he is hunting for Antoine because Serena promised that she would reveal Reva Connors' killer upon his return. Jones decides she must get to the Griers first.
A man with a Puerto Rican accent calls Jones, pretending to Antoine, because Jones left a message on Antoine's phone saying that he was the winner of a contest; Cage knows that he is not Antoine, but the two ask him to retrieve the package at a certain time and place. They follow Victor to an abandoned warehouse to see that it is being used as a marijuana greenhouse. Jones confronts Victor while Cage deals with his Dogs and finds Antoine; he planned to grow enough weed to become financially independent and able to repay his sister and Sirkes. Sirkes suddenly enters with thugs and a fight ensues. Jones escapes with Antoine while Cage deals with the men.
At Serena Grier's Apartment, Jones tries to convince Serena to give her the file with Connors' killer's name but Cage arrives and gets it first. He reads that Charles Wallace was the bus driver that January night and goes to kill him.
Meanwhile, Shlottman gets an abortion-inducing pill ultimately from Jeri Hogarth, who asked Pam to marry her, but was refused because she is still married, and Hogarth signs paperwork to keep the aborted fetus for herself.
Ducasse joins the Kilgrave Victim Support Group and tells them his testimony.
Jones catches Cage after he throws Wallace, who is sincerely sorry for being drunk that night, through the bus' windshield. Jones allows Wallace to flee as she reveals to Cage that she killed Connors. She tells Cage that his wife had information on Kilgrave and Jones was ordered to get it and kill Connors; the bus driver swerved to avoid the already dead woman. Cage is perplexed; he then insults Jones and leaves her in tears.
Kilgrave inspects his new house. He finds on a wall Jessica Jones' growth chart. He now owns her biological parents' home.
