Did She-Hulk Episode 7's Ending Give Us The Biggest Red Hulk Tease?

"She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" has been an interesting experiment for the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far. The show is essentially the MCU's first comedy series, utilizing half-hour episode lengths and employing a somewhat less serialized storytelling approach. The latest episode, "The Retreat," showed Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) being eventually ghosted by her latest romantic interest Josh (Trevor Salter), and later attending Emil Blonsky's (Tim Roth) meditation retreat. While still keeping the show's comedic elements, it actually serves as a big character development moment for Jennifer, as her time at the retreat allows her to become more comfortable with both her human side and her She-Hulk side.

Beyond that, however, the episode ends with a big revelation: Josh was only pretending to be interested in Jennifer in order to get a sample of her blood. Fans may remember that a group of villains attacked her in Episode 3, "The People vs. Emil Blonsky," with similar goals. However, the actual ending of "The Retreat" may give viewers their biggest hint yet at the introduction of the Red Hulk in the MCU.

The key to Red Hulk's introduction could be in Jennifer's blood

"She-Hulk," while mainly utilizing case-of-the-week storytelling, has been laying all the pieces to make most of their narratives come together by the time the finale rolls around. Obviously, any fan who has been paying attention knows that at the end of "The Retreat," Josh retrieved a blood sample from Jennifer for a mysterious person named HulkKing. In addition to this, in Episode 6, "Just Jen," the show introduces the website Intelligencia, a website designed to target those with powerful abilities and run by, you guessed it, HulkKing.

According to a Marvel entry on Intelligencia, the organization was founded by an individual known as the Leader, and eventually, he teamed with M.O.D.O.K. in an effort to create a Red Hulk that they could use to enact their plan of revenge against various super-powered people in the world. Could "She-Hulk" be heading in this direction now that HulkKing has Jennifer's blood? It's entirely possible, but it's also extremely hard to say with any certainty. Marvel loves to subvert expectations in ways that fans and comic readers least suspect, and this could easily be an example of that. Either way, HulkKing and his minions have some sort of plan, and it'll likely all be revealed before the show wraps up.
