🟢 Plot 🟢
Jen finds herself in trouble with the law and struggles to pick up the pieces of her life.
🟢 Quick Thoughts 🟢
I really did think this episode was pretty messy and it was all over the place. I have heard the they She-Hulk is in this show is the same way she is in the comics. So I will have to go check it out because to me in the show it does not flow. I would hope the comic has a more natural flow to it.
Even though I did not think this show hit all its marks correctly, I did appreciate that Marvel tried something different. They thought different creatively and I like that they were trying and the this was a lighter show than the other Marvel shows we have seen.
If they do another season I hope they do it Law and Order style and that Jen actually goes out and helps people.
🔴 Summary Spoiler Spew 🔴
We see Jen has been put in jail. She is in the same facility that Emil Blonsky was in. Pug and Nikki get her released when they agree that she will ear an ankle bracelet and not turn into She-Hulk anymore. She then gets fired from her job and moves back in with her parents. She is sad at the house, so she decides to go out and see Emil.
When Nikki was helping Jen move, Jen’s mom showed her a video of Jen in college drinking and dancing/twerking. Nikki posts that video on the Intelligencia page and she gets invited to a meet up. She realizes it is an all guys thing so she tells Pug to go to it.
While at Emil’s place, he is no where to be found. Jen asks someone there and they say he is in the barn. We see Pug is in a barn with everyone who is part of Intelligencia. Pug finds out who is running Intelligencia and it was a guy who went out on a date with Jen/She-Hulk.
I am sad that intelligencia is not what the comics portrays them as. In this show it is just internet trolls. In the comics they are a really thought out agency and they actually go out and do stuff.
Jen gets to the barn and sees abomination and that he is speaking at the Intelligencia get together. Josh admits he is Hulk King and then he says that he had Josh take her blood on their overnight date. He takes a syringe and sticks himself and then becomes big like the Hulk and fights start. Abomination starts to attack, Bruce shows up, and Titania was there too. Jen breaks the fourth wall and says this a ridiculous ending. We see the Disney+ home screen and She-Hulk breaks out of her show and goes into a making of Marvel show.
She makes her way to the writers room to ask them about why they are doing what they are doing. They tell her Kevin makes all the decisions so she makes her way to see Kevin. We find out KEVIN (Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus) is a robot. Jen tells KEVIN that she wants to take control and she wants a different ending to her show. KEVIN agrees. Jen gets put back into her own show and we see people are getting arrested and she is suing Hulk King (Todd).
I thought this robot thing was funny because where the eye is it looks like a baseball cap.
I am 100% not happy with this ending. I don’t mind Jen taking Todd to court. But the thing is that they were really amping up this whole Hulk King guy and then it all just fell flat. It just felt like this whole season was leading up to nothing. I get that it was about Jen coming to terms with who she is, but she did not even do anything. We also don’t see what happens to Josh and Intelligencia really was just online trolls? I was really hoping for something more.
At the end Jen invites Matt Murdock, Daredevil, to a family dinner and he agrees. During family dinner Bruce shows up and says that he was gone at Sakaar for a reason. He then introduces his son Skaar to the family.
I LOVE that we got Skaar. I wasn’t sure if they were going to give us this little present. What I did not like was bringing Daredevil into this. He has no place at this family dinner. Don’t get me wrong, I loved seeing Daredevil, but he just feels way too out of place.
