Welcome to the Ending Explained for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Episode 6. There are only 3 more episodes after this, and it is over for the first season of this Disney Plus show. How has it been so far? Well, it has been a bit all over the place and also a bit lacking when it comes to the things we expect from a Marvel show. It is fine to be different, but when you stray from the formula, you better substitute what you had with something of the same quality, if not better. We can say that maybe She-Hulk hasn’t been able to do that at all.
The feels very much trapped inside its own social commentary, and it doesn’t really open up to the fact that it is a superhero show first and a lawyer show later. In fact, the show hasn’t been able to do a good job on either front. The cases that are tackled in each of the episodes are so mundane and sloppy written that they seem almost a parody of lawyer shows, while the superhero side of things has been coming at a glacial pace. It could be that these last episodes will take things to the next level as we approach the climax. However, I wouldn’t hold my breath.
The following paragraphs contain spoilers for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Episode 6. Read at your own risk.
What Happens During The Wedding?
Like every other episode of the series, Episode 6 is divided into two plots. In this case, one concerns Jennifer going to the wedding of an old friend she barely talks to, and another one involves Nikki and Mallory as they navigate a legal case involving a client who can’t die. It is all very lighthearted, as is everything in the show. The first plot line is fundamentally concerned with the dichotomy that exists between Jennifer and She-Hulk. We know that Jennifer is a person with many insecurities, while She-Hulk seems to be the right person to be at all times.
The dichotomy is very interesting because while Jennifer and She-Hulk look completely different, they are the same persona. Bruce Banner had to deal with the fact that he and Hulk were separate entities. He never had to deal with the fact that he might like being Hulk because Hulk was a different person. His condition wasn’t better or worse than Jennifer’s, it was just different. Let’s remember that Bruce was basically being punished for things that another person was doing.
So, when Jennifer gets invited to a wedding, she decides to go as She-Hulk because she is finding out that this is the version of herself she wants to promote. In the previous episode, she was rejected multiple times as Jennifer because she wasn’t hot or pretty enough. This breaks the immersion a bit because Tatiana Maslany is quite pretty and so is Jennifer, but anyway, that is what the show is presenting and so Jennifer might soon be deciding to go She-Hulk all the time. The show doesn’t have the time to explore this dichotomy very much at all.
Jennifer appears at the wedding and spends the rehearsal depressed because she was asked to turn back into Jen to not draw attention from the bride. Fortunately, she meets a guy named Josh who seems to like Jennifer for who she is. However, she needs to be careful, as we know that there are men out there looking to steal her blood and do bad things with it. So far, Josh looks fine. She also ends up fighting with Titania again during the rehearsal, but the fight has basically no consequences. The rehearsal continued without problems.
What Happens In This Week’s Legal Case?
Every week the show seems to introduce a legal case involving a superpowered individual, and this week it is the turn of Mr. Immortal, a man who cannot die. However, for Mr. Immortal, his superpowered ability is more of an escape card from the problems of life. He arrives at the law firm with the intention of getting a divorce from his wife, but it becomes clear that Mr. Immortal is not even ready to take on her wife by himself. He wants the firm to inform his wife about the divorce. When Nikki and Mallory confront his cowardice, the man just jumps from a window.
It is later revealed that Mr. Immortal has many spouses, and all of them have been deceived by Mr. Immortal faking his death when things start becoming complicated. Mallory points out that marrying multiple people throughout the years and forging different identities should already have put him in jail, but that she will represent him the best she can. Mallory and Nikki come up with a plan to make the different spouses happy and avoid a legal suit they could not win. They divide Mr. Immortal’s fortune between the spouses and call it a day.
However, during the meetings for this case, Nikki’s attention is drawn to a website called Intelligencia. At the end of the day, after having dealt with Mr. Immortal’s case, she and Mallory sign into the site. Only to discover that it is a sign of trolls, hating on Jennifer for no other reason than being a woman. It is a very on-the-nose case of social commentary, taking the existence of online trolls to the next level, as these trolls are organized, and are planning to do something to Jennifer.
We see that the group is the one behind the wrecking crew attack a couple of episodes ago. This is the group trying to take Jennifer’s blood. We see them preparing another set of needles to extract the blood. They will probably be successful in the next episodes. This is great because the show really needs a villain and also needs more excuses for Jennifer to fight as She-Hulk. There is no post-credit scene in this episode either.
