Thin Air

It's Jessica Jones' first day at the Daily Bugle and she has a meeting with J. Jonah Jameson about her possible career in journalism. Jameson has finally realized that his hatred of costumed vigilantes has been hurting sales of the paper, so he's relenting for a special weekly section entitled "The Pulse" where the entire contents would be about superheroes. The deal is that she gives Ben Urich her stories and insight and they pay her. She agrees, despite Jonah's tacking on an exclusive about her childbirth. Later on, he talks it over with Urich and demands a huge story for the first installment.

Meanwhile, across town, a dead body has surfaced in the river. When the police fish it out, they find that she was dropped from a high altitude and that her identity is going to cause their lives to be hell.
