She-Hulk Episode 2 Recap: Namaste In Your Cell

The second episode of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" picks up exactly where we expected it to — not giving us any details on what Titania's (Jameela Jamil) problem is. The episode doesn't provide us with anything on the mystery villain except for a brief mention on a local news broadcast. Titania is referred to as a super-powered influencer, and it's revealed she's currently in custody — and that's it. Hopefully, we'll find out more on that later, or Jamil really overplayed how integral she is to the series.

Episode 2 revolves around Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) accepting a job at GLK&H, where she works in the superhuman law division. Her first case? The parole hearing of Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), aka Abomination. You know, the guy who tried to kill her cousin, Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). There are more fourth-wall breaks, shaky CGI, and jokes that may or may not land, depending on how many drinks you had before watching. Episode 2 is certainly a set-up episode for the next (we think), and there's not too much to digest here, but there is definitely something hinted at that is foreshadowing a major MCU project.

The seven mistresses of Emil Blonsky

The catch about Jen being offered the job at GLK&H is that if she doesn't agree to represent Emil, said job no longer exists. She is adamant about not taking it because of that whole 'being loyal to your family thing,' but she goes to meet him in prison to feel out the situation. Emil is very zen-like these days, greeting Jen by saying "Namaste" and revealing he's taken up haiku-writing. The former soldier also notes that he has seven mistresses he's met through the pen pal system who he plans on living with on a farm if he's granted parole.

Jenn seems intrigued after Emil reveals he was shot up with super soldier serum and could not control the Abomination because of it. She decides to take the case but needs Bruce's approval. Jen calls up her cousin, who tells her he and Blonsky made amends years ago. He wrote a haiku for Bruce, and it's all water under the bridge now. It's glossed over in a matter of seconds, and the audience is supposed to buy that Hulk and Abomination have let bygones be bygones because of a haiku. And, of course, we couldn't get through this scene without a nod to Edward Norton's Hulk as Bruce says, "That fight was so many years ago, I'm a completely different person now, literally."

It seems we can trust the new Blomsky, who proves in "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" that Abomination can be tamed and follow directions. At the end of Episode 2, Jen finds out via a news report that Abomination is broken out of his cell just after she accepts the case. For Jen, this is a worst-case scenario, but the audience knows it's not a big deal, as Abomination is likely off to fight in the "Shang-Chi" cage match we've already seen, or perhaps a different one with Wong (Benedict Wong).

Bon Voyage, Hulk

After giving Jen his blessing that she really didn't need, Smart Hulk says he's got some things to take care of. The camera zooms out, and we see he's on the same Sakaarian ship that caused Jen to swerve her car in Episode 1, causing the crash. Is this ship taking off for a planet we've yet to see in the MCU? The odds are very slight, and it's almost a certainty that Hulk is on his way back to Sakaar.

At the time of this publication, Hulk is not confirmed to appear in another MCU project, and no "Hulk" movie has been announced. But, many suspect Hulk heading back to Sakaar suggests a "World War Hulk" movie is coming. In the comics, Hulk is shipped off Earth with his pregnant wife after being banished by the Illuminati. His wife dies after the ship crashes on Sakaar, leaving Hulk devastated. But the planet's radiation levels only make him stronger, and he heads back to Earth for revenge.

There would have to be some clever writing here as Hulk's already been to Sakaar in the MCU and not because of banishment. But this circle's back to why the Sakaarian ship was looking for Hulk (because at that point, they'd have no interest in Jennifer). Maybe it wasn't a threat or something to be concerned about. Perhaps a truth bomb is about to be dropped on Bruce, like, you have a son. And his name is Skaar. Hulk possibly conceived a child while on Sakaar, but Bruce doesn't know about it because he was so far removed from the green guy's conscience.

A lot can be inferred from Hulk taking off on the Sakaarian ship, and we'll have to wait for the Hat Man, aka Kevin Feige, to confirm a "World War Hulk" film.

When does She-Hulk Season 1, Episode 3 air?

Episode 3 of "She-Hulk: Attorney at Law" will drop on September 1 at 3 a.m. EST on Disney+. 

It seemed like a certainty that we'd dive into Titania's story in Episode 2, and since we didn't, there's a good chance this is being saved for Episode 3 or 4. Hulk's story in "She-Hulk" seems to be over for now, and we're not expecting to see him again since he's well on his way to another planet, which won't work within Jennifer's story. We should witness the fallout of Blonsky escaping prison, with Episode 3 likely featuring Wong. The character has long been confirmed for the series, and the next episode seems like his best shot at appearing. If Blonksy escaped prison in Episode 2 to compete in the underground fighting ring from "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," Wong will be on our screens shortly.

Since Jennifer has also accepted the Blonsky case, we might see some of those proceedings start, given that Abomination gets back to his cell in time.
