Jen’s first superhuman law case hits a snag as she realises that her client, Emil Blonsky/Abomination, snuck out of his cell to attend an underground fight club (as seen in Shang-Chi!). Who snuck him out of the high security prison though? And can Jen find a way to defend the supposedly reformed Blonsky’s actions?
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s third episode opens up the whole superhuman law angle quite a bit, with the Blonsky parole hearing taking place alongside a second case. The second case features an Asgardian shapeshifter and an unlikely but really funny celebrity; despite this being – for all intents and purposes – the B-plot, it’s just as well done as the main storyline. It’s another great way to showcase the very funny writing too.
Though slightly heavy handed, there’s some great digs at online misogyny and the endlessly repeated justifications that trolls and hate-click YouTubers rely on to plead the case that they aren’t really sexist.
Tatiana Maslany shines once again in a role she was clearly born to play (though some of the She-Hulk specific CGI is still not quite right at times) and Tim Roth stands out in another great appearance as Blonsky and the Abomination. This may be a spoiler, though if you’ve seen Shang-Chi it’ll come as no surprise, but Benedict Wong turns in another excellent and amusing turn as Sorcerer Supreme Wong.
Another excellent episode then – and it even has little built in moments to annoy the haters. Well played, She-Hulk. Well played.
