Synopsis: In Ribbit and Rip it She-Hulk represents Leap-Frog who was injured due to a malfunction in his custom-made super suit.
When She-Hulk is told to represent Leap-Frog who was injured because of a malfunction in his custom-made suit. It leads to a conflict of interest due to the fact that Leap-Frog uses the services of fashion designer Luke Jacobson who also designs costumes for She-Hulk and many other heroes.
When Jen/She-Hulk takes this case on it she comes up against Matt Murdock aka Daredevil who is representing Jacobson. When Murdock points out that it would be impossible for Jacobson to give out a copy of his client list. The case is pretty much thrown out. Added to that Leap-Frog hurts his case when he reveals that he didn’t follow the exact instructions that Luke gave him about the suit.
After the case is somewhat settled. Jen and Matt meet for some drinks and seem to get on quite well with each other. However, their date is interrupted when Leap-Frog kidnaps Luke Jacobson and tries to force him into making a new suit for him. Murdock changes into his Daredevil costume, which Luke designed for him, and goes after him, but gets some help from She-Hulk. The two Lawyer/Superheroes bring down Leap-Frogs entire operation and successfully rescue Luke who agrees to take She-Hulk back as one of his clients.
There was definite chemistry between Tatiana Maslany and Charlie Cox as Jen and Matt, as well as their superhero, alter egos. The banter between them was fun while the villain Leap-Frog was a bit of a lightweight, which kind of made this episode more fun.
All actors put in solid performances. But this was mostly a showcase for She-Hulk and her new relationship with Daredevil. I hope we get to see more crossover between these two heroes as it made for fun energy for the episode.
Ribbit and Rip it was a fun episode with some nice action beats. The fight between She-Hulk and Daredevil was fun as were the sequences where the two heroes take down Leap-Frogs lair. I also like the twist at the end of the episode when Jen goes to collect her award and has her She-Hulk identity slandered, which leads to an epic meltdown. I look forward to seeing how the consequences of that last five minutes shake out in next week’s episode.
