In last week’s episode of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law,” we saw Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) going on a trip with her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). They encountered a Sakaarian ship, which caused Jennifer to crash the car. That’s when Bruce’s irradiated blood dripped into Jennifer’s open wound and turned her into a Hulk. The majority of the episode was dedicated to proving why Jennifer is so good at being a Hulk and Bruce coming to terms with that fact. And although Jennifer never wanted to reveal her Hulk persona to the world, the appearance of Titania (Jameela Jamil) forced her to. In the closing moments of the episode, we learn that Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) didn’t die a virgin.
Jennifer Walters Gets Hired By GLK & H
As evident from the news reporting, Jennifer’s altercation with Titania has gone viral. An eye-witness identifies Jennifer as the She-Hulk. Later that night, at a bar for lawyers (I guess), she’s requested to make an appearance as the She-Hulk. And she obliges. Dennis (Drew Matthews), like the sexist prick he is, criticizes her for “debuting her superpowers” just to show off and probably get a promotion. Thankfully, Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) shoos him away, and they have a brief conversation about being a superhero. But that’s cut short by Jennifer’s boss, who arrives there to fire her because she’s a liability to the DA’s office now that she’s a superhero. The title cheekily addresses it by changing the subtitle from “Attorney at Law” to “Attorney for Hire” to make a note of Jennifer’s jobless status.
We see a montage of Jennifer going from one firm to another, only to be rejected by them because she’s a superhero. That’s why she even considers taking on “offbeat jobs” like being a Swiss Village Mascot. To make matters worse, she’s called for a family dinner, and family dinners after getting fired is never a good sign. That’s proven to be right within seconds as every single member of Jennifer’s family, including her other cousin Ched, begins to dunk on her. She’s saved by her dad, though, who takes her to the workshop to check in on her and see if she’s actually okay. This little gesture allows Jennifer to open up and express how she’s feeling about this whole situation. After finishing dinner, Jennifer goes for a drink. That’s when she’s approached by Holden Holliway (Steve Coulter), who hires her to represent GLK & H.
Jennifer Walters Meets Emil Blonsky
After arriving at GLK and H, Jennifer learns that Holliway wants her to head their Superhuman Law Division. Not as Jennifer Walters. But as for She-Hulk, Which means that she has to stay in her superhuman persona all the time. That also means Jennifer is going to be treated differently. To be precise, as a superhero and not a competent lawyer. She even thinks that is the main reason she has been hired at all. When she tells Nikki the same, she tells her to look at the bright side of it, i.e., a swanky office equipped with a fully stocked mini fridge and an increased salary. They meet with Augustus “Pug” Pugliese (Josh Segarra), who is also in the same division. By the way, if you notice GLK&H’s logo on the monitor in Jennifer’s office, it looks very similar to the logo that was going to be used for “She-Hulk”.
When she proceeds to take her first case as the She-Hulk, Holliway lets her know that it involves Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth). Jennifer cites conflict-of-interest because Blonsky had a fight with Bruce that destroyed Harlem. But Holliway says that if she doesn’t take the case, then she has to leave the company. He also tells her that she should at least meet Blonsky before making a decision. So, that’s what she does. Blonsky reveals that he isn’t the Abomination anymore and that he has full control over his transformations. He also reveals that he has seven soulmates that he has formed relationships with through the prison’s pen pal program, and he intends to start a new life with them. He admits that he tried to kill Bruce, but only because the Government wanted him to and since he was pumped with the Super Soldier serum. He even seems remorseful about his actions and honest about his reformation.
‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Episode 2: Ending Explained – Jennifer’s Case Has A Magical Twist
Jennifer calls Bruce to essentially tell him that she’s taking Emil Blonsky’s case. Bruce says that he’s okay with that because he’s buried the hatchet after reading Blonksy’s letter and haiku. When Jennifer asks him if he’s coming to LA anytime soon, we see that Bruce is actually in that Sakaarian ship from the first episode and blasting off into space because he apparently has to take care of some things. That’s a nice way to ensure that Bruce won’t be a constant presence in the show. Next, Jennifer calls Holliway to tell him that she’s taking the case. Holliway tells her to switch on the TV, which is airing the fight between the Abomination and Wong (Benedict Wong) from “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings“, thereby complicating the whole case a lot. In a mid-credit scene, we see Jennifer helping out her father with all kinds of household chores.
