‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Episode 9 Ending, Explained: What Happened in She-Hulk Season Finale?

Welcome to the Ending Explained for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Episode 9, where it seems like Kevin has been malfunctioning for a while. The quality of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been in decline; the movies and the TV shows have become just a shadow of what they were in the past. Gone are the solid characters and the development that made them worth following. Now the brand has imploded into a bad parody of self-references and probable self-hatred at knowing they won’t be able to achieve something like Endgame ever again.

Episode 9 of She-Hulk: Attorney At Law brings the show to a close and, with it, certifies the suspicions that Marvel has overextended itself, and now they are, like Bilbo said, very little butter over too much bread. The episode tries to end the show in a clever, funny way but ends up being a sad sign of what we have all been feeling since Endgame culminated what was a very strong continuous storyline. Now, even the writers try to make fun of the fact that they are bad writers. How the mighty have fallen.

What Happened In She-Hulk Season Finale?

The episode begins by following the aftermath of the events in the previous episode, beginning with an opening sequence that is an homage to the opening of the Hulk show from the 70s. We see that Jennifer has been sent to prison, just like The Abomination before her. Nikki and Pug arrive to see how she is and help her to build a case against the trolls from Intelligencia. They stop Jen in her tracks and tell her that the court is giving her a way out. They won’t press any charges for her being angry in the previous episode if she uses one of the inhibitors and doesn’t transform anymore.

Jennifer accepts, and she goes out of jail. However, Jennifer quickly discovers that her entire life has been destroyed. She has been fired from the law firm, is now being humiliated and stalked by the press, and Daredevil is nowhere to be seen, so she is feeling lonely. Jen tries to make contact with Bruce, but he is still in space. So she decides to return to Emil’s retreat and spend a couple of days in peace, far from the press and the trolls.

Jennifer arrives at Emil’s retreat and is received by one of the guys from the wrecking crew that attacked her long ago. Jennifer still does make the connection that if there is one person who can tell who are the guys in Intelligencia it could be this person, right there, in front of her. Jennifer begins reading Emil’s self-help books, says it sucks and goes to the kitchen. There, she finds the wrecking crew guy again, who points her in Emil’s direction.

Meanwhile, Nikki is trying to take down the guys from Intelligencia by herself, and she manages to get an invitation to one of their meetings. However, she is a woman, so she can’t go. She recruits Pug’s help and sends him to the meeting. There, Pug has to be gross and complain about women. He also discovers what we already knew many episodes ago: that Todd is the leader of Intelligencia. Emil arrives at the meeting to do some motivational speaking, transformed into The Abomination. Jennifer also arrives and crashes the meeting. All plotlines collide in an instant.

Is Kevin Malfunctioning Again In The She-Hulk: Attorney At Law Season Finale?

So, Emil has been transforming into the Abomination without anyone knowing about it. Todd reveals he hired Jen’s love interest to steal his blood, and he now injects himself and becomes Todd Hulk. He sends the rest of the group to attack her, and Bruce arrives out of nowhere and starts fighting The Abomination. Titania also arrives from nowhere as well. At this moment, Jennifer stops the show and breaks the fourth wall, admitting that this finale doesn’t make any sense.

Jennifer then decides to break out of the show into the Disney Plus interface, and from there, she escapes into “real life” she moves through Marvel Studios and finds the writer’s room for She-Hulk: Attorney At Law. There she meets the writers that have forced her into this bad ending for some reason. They explain that this is the ending that K.E.V.I.N. wants, so Jen decides to talk to Kevin to see what the hell is happening. Why is her show so bad?

Jen goes through security, and there she meets K.E.V.I.N., an AI version of Kevin Feige, the real-life producer of all Marvel content. K.E.V.I.N.’s design even has a tiny hat, just like the one Kevin Feige uses in real life. K.E.V.I.N. explains that he has the most advanced algorithm ever created, which helps him create almost perfect products. It is ironic that many of the latest Marvel shows and movies have been attacked by their low quality. For example, the Blade film production has been halted because the script is so bad.

Jennifer makes many references to other Marvel properties and convinces K.E.V.I.N. to write another ending for the show. Not every ending needs to be a climax where everybody fights. K.E.V.I.N. deletes the ending he has worked out and gives Jen an ending where everything the show has put on her plate has been solved like magic. Daredevil even appears again and plays the boyfriend of the weekend for Jen. Bruce also comes back and introduces his son, Skaar, to his family.

In a post-credit sequence, Emil is shown in prison, and Wong appears to break him out.
