*Warning: This piece contains spoilers for episode five of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law*
Episode five of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law begins with Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) discovering while watching television that Titania has used her newly trademarked moniker She-Hulk to launch a line of snake oil beauty products. Finally admitting to herself that she wants the name She-Hulk back, Jen hires colleague and rival Mallory Book (Renee Elise Goldsberry) to represent her in her countersuit against Titania. In this countersuit, Jen must prove that the name She-Hulk was a part of her identity prior to Titania’s trademark.
Meanwhile, Jen’s friends and coworkers Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) and Pug (Josh Segarra) enter a mysterious boba shop that is secretly a front for a famed tailor, Luke Jacobson (Griffin Matthews), who makes superhero suits. After being rejected a handful of times, Luke finally agrees to give them a fifteen minute consultation. The consultation with Jen goes well and he agrees to make her outfits.
After remembering creating a dating profile as She-Hulk, Jen finally realizes she has enough evidence to win the suit against Titania. In court, Book embarrassingly reveals She-Hulk’s dating app bio and calls all her former dates as witnesses. All the men testify to the court that Jen had identified as She-Hulk, and Jen and Book win the case against Titania. In celebration, Jen confesses to Book that she thinks they’ll be good friends. At the end of the episode, Jen goes into a changing room at the boba shop to try on the new suits that Luke has made for her.
Episode five of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law may be the shortest episode yet, if not in duration, than in substance. While the show still certainly has its same charm and humor, the world building of the show and action have taken a backseat. Having now crossed the halfway point of this show, and now that our main characters have been more than established, hopefully the remaining episodes can bring some of these plot points together in a new and more invigorating way.
