‘She-Hulk’ Episode Two Recap: “Superhuman Law”

*Warning: This piece contains spoilers for episode two of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law*

Episode two She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, though brief, continues that lighter and more comedic edge established by the premiere, and introduces more conflict to continue throughout the run of this season.

Picking up right where episode one left off, this episode begins with Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) and her best friend (and paralegal) Nikki Ramos (Ginger Gonzaga). As they go to enter a bar with their coworkers, Nikki implores Jennifer to turn into She-Hulk–the new moniker Jen has reluctantly been saddled with–to give the people what they want. In the bar, She-Hulk is approached by her boss, who, sternly, asks her to return to her normal form. Due to the very public snafu and the case being declared a mistrial, Jen is fired from the district attorney’s office.

After a jubilant montage of Jen getting rejected by multiple firms, she returns to her family home to have dinner with her relatives. During this dinner, they all seem to have very little interest in how her life is going and/or only see She-Hulk as a means to help them out.

Jen returns to the bar where she is approached by the head of an opposing firm and is offered a position. She swiftly accepts the offer. On her first day of work, she discovers that she will be doing superhuman law and other court cases pertaining to super-affairs, and that she is expected to work as She-Hulk full time. Her fast case is the parole of Emil Blonsky/Abomination (Tim Roth).

Jen meets with Blonsky, who appears to have reformed his ways and seems remorseful. Jen has reservations about defending him due to his previous attack as Abomination on her cousin Bruce Banner. Jen calls Bruce (Mark Ruffalo) to get his approval to defend Blonsky, to which he agrees. Jen receives a phone call from her boss telling her to turn on the TV. Jen turns on the news to find that Blonsky has escaped prison and performed in an underground fight club as Abomination.

During a mid-credits scene, we see Jen do a plethora of chores for her family as She-Hulk.

Episode two of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law furthers the charm brought upon by the first one. Though a shorter episode, there is plenty of groundwork laid out in episode two, providing a more clear basis for where the show is expected to lead. There seems to be no shortage of thrills lying ahead in the wonderful world of She-Hulk.
