She-Hulk: Attorney at Law Episode 7 Review
What’s one of the worst things about dating in the modern day? Getting ghosted by someone, that’s what. You go on a nice date, think you hit it off, and then, bam! You get ghosted. They don’t even have the decency to break up via text or phone call. Then you spend the rest of the day glued to your phone, hoping they text back. It’s the worst. And when Jen gets ghosted, she’s forced to confront some very uncomfortable things about herself. Or rather, the relationship between her and She-Hulk.
You Got Ghosted, Jen Walters!
After going to the wedding last week, Jen started dating the one guy that seemed to like her for Jen. And it goes really well, even getting to third base. However, after that happens, she gets ghosted, causing her to stress about it all day. Then she gets a call from Blonsky’s parole office. The next thing she knows, Jen’s at his retreat for superhumans, only to get stranded without any wifi with a bunch of random super-powered beings.
I pride myself on usually knowing who’s who in Marvel. However, this is one case where I was clueless about who these people were and had to look them up. It was actually a refreshing change of pace, even if I didn’t know who any of these people were.
Regardless of who they were, though, the one thing they end up doing is helping Jen sort out some issues she’s been having ever since she became She-Hulk. Issues that I’ve pointed out in my previous reviews.
Jen Finally Opens Up About Her Issues
Before she became She-Hulk, Jennifer Walters was just Jen, Bruce Banner’s cousin, and a pretty awesome person. She ate Cheetos with chopsticks, had a great sense of humor, and obsessed over whether Steve Rogers was a virgin. As cool as she was, though, no one gave her the time of day. Then she became She-Hulk, and now when she steps into the room, people notice; they pay attention to her. She commands their attention, even when she doesn’t want to.
Add in the fact that most guys she’s dated only liked She-Hulk, which just makes things worse. Then when she thinks she’s met someone who likes her for Jen…she gets ghosted. Not even a goodbye. It’s frustrating, and some people would probably snap from it.
Thankfully, rather than play it off for laughs, or wait for it to add up until she snaps in the worst way possible, Marvel does the right thing and has Jen talk her feelings out. It works, too. By the time she leaves Blonsky’s retreat, she’s mentally in a much better place, deleting Josh’s contact info in the process.
She’s going to wish that she hadn’t.
Intelligencia is Out for Jen’s Blood…Literally!!
So, when they hear about how Josh ghosted her, Blonsky’s therapy group wants to kill him for it. While I wouldn’t go that far, they were right to be concerned. Josh is a total sleazeball, and we see he didn’t just ghost Jen. He copied her phone information, stole a blood vial, and took a photo of her sleeping form.
That last part is really messed up!
So, it appears that Josh was working for Intelligencia, AKA the people who are literally out for She-Hulk’s blood. But, of course, now that they have it, who knows what kind of damage they could end up doing? The last thing that the world needs is a bunch of evil Hulks running around causing trouble. In other words, things are about to get real.
This was a different kind of episode for me. It wasn’t as funny as I’m used to, but it started addressing Jen’s insecurities, which I knew would need addressing. However, there are only two episodes left in the season, and we still haven’t seen any sign of Daredevil. Disney kept putting him into their ads for the show, and fans are getting frustrated. I’m getting frustrated, and I’m not that into Daredevil. Can we please add him already?
The moral of the episode, though, is that ghosting people isn’t right. If you get ghosted, though, don’t let it get to you too much. As a side note, I’m hoping Blonsky doesn’t go back to being a villain. I like this new, chill version of him.
