The past two weeks the Marvel fandom has gotten quite agitating as some fans have become impatient waiting for the arrival of Daredevil in She-Hulk. This almost makes me wish that we had not known ahead of time that he would show up. This week we did finally get him and thank goodness we also got the best writing and directing so far in the show. The episode is a perfect storm of television making and is MCU television at its best.
I will of course begin by noting how happy I am to have Charlie Cox back in earnest as Daredevil. I have missed this character so much. I was also so happy to see that Matt was able to show his comedic side in this episode. It felt like the Matt we know, but he also adjusted just enough to fit the tone of She-Hulk. And wow, was the flirtation steamy between Jen and Matt.
Tatiana Maslany’s acting is as always great in this episode, but everything is really elevated by a great script. I thought all of the fourth-wall breaks we very purposeful and perfectly delivered. And this rump of an episode is all to show us that after last week’s Abomination Bottle Episode, Jennifer has truly started to grow in how she sees herself. She is beginning to have more confidence as Jen and reconcile her two halves.
The finale of the episode is the true test of Jen’s new confidence, and it shows that thought she has grown since she turned into She-Hulk, she is still not vulnerable to her inner rage, which she rightfully uses to destroy her humiliation. I will really be interested to see how it all wraps up next week in the series finale.
