Last week’s episode of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” revolved around Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) proving that Emil Blonsky/Abomination (Tim Roth) has indeed become a better person. And, hence, he should be allowed to go back into society with his seven soul-mates who are willing to fund his retreat. When Wong (Benedict Wong) arrived to admit that he was the one who broke Blonsky out of prison and when Blonsky exhibited positive signs of change, his parole was granted. Due to Dennis Bukowski’s (Drew Matthews) bizarre case of fraud, which involved an Asgardian shape-shifting Light Elf, we got a grating cameo from Megan Thee Stallion as well. Anyway, let’s talk about today’s episode.
Wong Hires Jennifer Walters To Help With A Case
There was a lot of speculation that Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider was going to show up in “She-Hulk.” The first scene of this episode puts those speculations to rest, as the man turns out to be an amateur magician called Donny Blaze. He is seen conducting, you guessed it, a very bad magic show. But he doesn’t give up and pulls out a sling ring, something that only students of the Mystic Arts should have, and summons a very drunk girl (Madisynn, with two N’s and one Y, but it’s not where you think) to the stage. He opens a portal to some decrepit realm and apparently sends Madisynn through it. She lands in the Kamar-Taj, interrupting and spoiling Wong’s “The Sopranos” viewing session, and reveals that she had to make a blood pact with a talking goat to get out of the dimension Donny sent her into.
After Wong vows to make Donny pay for his sins, the episode cuts to Jennifer talking to us about how happy we are about the extended Wong cameo. Jennifer’s father arrives, armed with all kinds of self-defense weapons after learning about her attack in the alley. At the office, Jennifer sets up her dating profile as herself and not She-Hulk. Wong arrives inside her room to talk about Donny Blaze. He says that he’s a former student of the Mystic Arts and was kicked out after a week when he summoned three kegs and his former fraternity brother, Ky-Dog, to Kamar-Taj. And since he is using the sacred teachings to send volunteers into other realms, thereby risking the untethering of the material and astral planes, Wong wants Jennifer to make an example of Donny. He wants a precedent to be set so that no amateur magician tampers with the Mystic Arts again.
Jennifer Fails To Stop Donny Blaze From Performing The Mystic Arts
Since Wong never got it in writing that former students of the Mystic Arts can’t practice magic, Jennifer realizes that it’s going to be complicated to pursue Donny Blaze with a cease-and-desist order. But she persists. In the meantime, Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) helps her out with her love life. The biggest piece of advice that she gives her is to stop dating as Jennifer and start dating as She-Hulk. The following day, we find Jennifer and Wong in Cornelius P. Willow’s (owner and “curiosity curator” of the Mystic Castle) office. She gives Donny Blaze (and his hype man) a warning to stop practicing the Mystic Arts, or else he’ll have to see her and Wong in court. Blaze doesn’t take her seriously at all, thereby ensuring his ticket to the court. On their way, Jennifer gets a match on her dating app, and it goes horrendously.
The following day, the Donny Blaze versus Wong court hearing begins. Wong summons Madisynn to prove that Blaze has been illegally sending volunteers to different realms. While talking about the demon that allowed her to get out of the “fire land” and back into Earth, she says that the demon’s name was Jake. Since the internet seems to be a fan of theorizing when Mephisto is going to turn up, well, there you go. That demon can potentially be Mephisto. The judge tilts in Donny’s favor when Madisynn describes her whole interdimensional traveling experience as a fun but spooky one, thereby allowing him to continue practicing magic until the judge declares the final decision. Jennifer starts to go on dates as the She-Hulk, and after skipping a bunch of unlikable candidates, she zeroes in on Arthur (Michel Curiel). The court’s decision backfires as Donny mistakenly summons a horde of demons during one of his magic shows.

A side note: one of the guys that She-Hulk meets is supposed to be a director whose movie has premiered at Sundance, which is about a lawyer. And since he’s clubbed with the rest of the losers, it just feels like Marvel’s way of looking down on Sundance films, as they won’t be as popular as Marvel’s films and shows. It can be looked at as a harmless joke. But when you take the discourse around indie films and festival darlings versus Marvel’s theme-park rides, that joke feels contemptuous. So, to make things clear, no matter how popular Marvel films and shows get and no matter how high their production value becomes, they won’t be half as good (in terms of quality) as indie films and festival darlings. On that note, the big CGI-fest of the episode begins with Wong going to Donny’s aid and helping him round up the demon spawns.
When the going gets tough, Wong pulls Jennifer out of her romantic evening with Arthur, and the two team up to take on the demonic creatures. Jennifer forces Donny and his partner to agree to the terms of the cease-and-desist. Then Wong drops her off with Arthur, who is reading “Bad Feminist” by Roxane Gay. The following day, though, after seeing Jennifer in her human form, Arthur practically runs out of the house. In addition to that, Jennifer gets sued by Titania (Jameela Jamil) for using the name She-Hulk because, apparently, it has been trademarked by her. In the credit artwork, we see Madisynn making a pact with a goat named Jake and Wong, who is trapping Donny in the mirror dimension. In the mid-credits, we see Wong and Madisynn watching “This Is Us” and discussing the types of drinks Wong has tried and hasn’t tried yet.
