She-Hulk Attorney at Law Episode 3 Review
Tatiana Maslany continues to wow in her appearance for Disney+’s series, She-Hulk. Here’s my She-Hulk episode 3 review and some spoilers.
There will be spoilers here so SPOILER ALERT
In terms of building the MCU, we barely get anywhere at the surface but a rewatch helped me understand what they plan to do and I’ll get to that in a bit.
The simplified plot here is that there’s going to be a deliberation to see whether Emil Blonsky aka Abomination (Tim Roth) should be paroled or not and after the leaked video of Wong fighting Abomination, which we all saw in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, he may not get his parole. So Jen plans her actions including contacting the current Sorcerer Supreme, Wong.
There’s a subplot about Jen Walters’ former colleague Dennis Bukowski suing his former girlfriend Runa who pretended to be Megan Thee Stallion and Jen’s other friend Augustus “Pug” Pugliese takes that case because she’s prioritizing the Blonsky case. Walters helps Pug win the case by testifying for Bukowski and in return she realizes a way to convince the parole board to give Blonsky’s freedom.
Blonsky wins and by the end of the episode Walters is attacked by the MCU version of the Wreckers who intend to steal some of Shulkie’s blood for a mysterious boss.
Now that’s over with time for some nitpicks.
- I’m OK with this episode’s pacing and how they broke down two cases with so much Ally McBeal vibes on it.
- Thank goodness they didn’t fully embrace the comic book source where its so much crazier. But a little more mania could be a good thing.
- I’m extremely disappointed with the depiction of the Wrecking Crew, but I will give it time. Maybe Marvel Studios has some trick up their sleeve for these characters.
- Megan Thee Stallion. Not sure whether that’s a good thing or bad thing. Storywise, its funny that’s actually attending Runa’s trial.
- The She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 3 post-credit scene was funny as hell for me. I don’t get why other viewers didn’t like it.
- Wong’s behavior is what made the Sokovia Accords popular some years back. Maybe this could be something they could track with down the line whenever they’ll be doing a third Doctor Strange movie.
- Comedy gold as usual for Benedict Wong. I also wasn’t expecting that he’d be a little bit of a dick while continuing being his snappy, quippy, sourpuss himself.
- We also get some half-decent explanation why Abomination was fighting Wong as seen in “Shang-Chi”.
- Are we seeing hints of a big bad for this season? Who is the Wrecking Crew’s boss? Could we be getting the return of “The Leader”?
I thought this was just an OK episode. Nothing super important but it does pave the way what happens next for other projects. I did like the way they continued developing Jennifer Walters and her world. We need a wee bit more action to be honest.
