Synopsis: She-Hulk represents Emil Blonsky, but his hearing doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Dennis Bukowski seeks representation from the GLK&H Superhuman Law Division.
Picking the story up from last week. Jen aka She-Hulk has been given Emil Blonsky aka Abomination as a client. Having done the initial interview she found that Blonsky seemed to have reformed his ways. However, a video of Abomination involved in a cage fight, which was facilitated by a prison break calls Blonsky’s case into question. The only person that can straighten this out is the Sorceror Supreme Wong who has a very erratic presence on social media and is rather difficult to get a hold of.
Adding to the fun is the fact that Jen’s ex-work colleague Dennis Bukowski is seeking damages against a shapeshifter from Asgard called Runa. Apparently, this Runa convinced Dennis that she was a famous music artist and conned him into buying her a very expensive car.
Tatiana Maslany continues to do a solid job of portraying the difficulties in having to live life as both Jen and She-Hulk. She gets solid backup from Ginger Gonzaga as her paralegal Nikki Ramos who is advising her to take advantage of the publicity that She-Hulk is getting.
Once again Tim Roth is fantastic fun as Emil Blonsky whose character has radically changed from his original portrayal of the role. We also get a fun guest appearance from Benedict Wong as Wong, who is called upon to help clear Blonsky in regard to the prison break.
Added to this is a fantastically fun performance for the show B-Story from both Drew Matthews and Peg O’Keef as Dennis Bukowski and Runa. Matthews does a brilliant job of portraying the self-absorbed Bukowski who thinks he is gods gift to all women. While Peg O’Keef brilliantly plays up the Mischief of the shapeshifting Runa. I particularly found the part where she impersonates the judge really funny.
This is perhaps the best episode we have had yet. Particularly when it comes to the comedic elements of the show. While the main story was rather fun. I found the B-Story to be a little funnier, which in large part is thanks to Peg O’Keef truly embracing a childlike mischievous streak. I’m hoping that we’ll get to see Runa again at some point in the future as she is definitely a character that can cause a whole heap of trouble and is comedy gold.
