She-Hulk Episode 5 Breaks a Series Tradition
Today marks the release of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s fifth episode, and it takes a slight departure from its previous entries. Some of the highlights of the Disney+ series have been Jennifer Walters and her She-Hulk alter-self image breaking the fourth wall to speak to the audience, along with the teasers that run as mid-credits scenes. We’ve witnessed She-Hulk uproariously remark on Captain America’s virginity, do household chores for her father, and twerk with Megan Thee Stallion. With just two additional episodes to go, viewers were anxiously tuning in to see what might close out Episode 5, named “Mean, Green, and Straight Filled These Jeans.”

After winning her countersuit against Titania for trademarking the “She-Hulk” name, Jennifer Walters and her attorney, Mallory Book (Elise Goldsberry) grab some drinks. The ladies bond over Jennifer’s unfortunate selection of dates, and come to the agreement that she needs to upgrade her wardrobe. This leads to Jennifer paying a visit to a superhero tailor, who is creating outfits made specifically for Jennifer/She-Hulk. Before the credits begin rolling, we get a brief glance at one of the tailor’s creations that is scheduled for a get: Daredevil’s yellow mask.
The magnificently illustrated She-Hulk credits roll, however instead of a mid-credits scene continuing the Marvel hero’s story, the credits continue until they end. Unfortunately, fans are left with just a single additional episode to witness the meeting between She-Hulk and Daredevil.
While at D23 Expo this month, Daredevil star Charlie Cox was asked if his upcoming appearance in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law sets up his upcoming Disney+ series, Daredevil: Brought back to life, in any way, shape, or structure. As the fan-favorite star recalled, there’s not really an association between the two.
“I have to take a hard pass,” Cox told Deadline. “I think it’s in its own second.”
Despite the fact that there’s no preparation laid for Brought back to life in She-Hulk, series head author Jessica Gao previously applauded Cox’s performance as the Man Unafraid.
“He has such worship and love for that character. Obviously the character meant so a lot to him, however he also came exceptionally game to play around,” She-Hulk essayist Jessica Gao said in a chat with Collider earlier this summer. “He was totally up for more interesting banter and having this pleasant dynamic with Jen and She-Hulk.”
“It really feels like the character from the comics. It was so fun because he really does squeeze into the show so impeccably,” she added. “They’re the two lawyers, and they’re both superheroes. Who else can say that they have that in like manner? It was just extremely fun thinking about what their dynamics would be, based on the personalities of these two characters.”
