Marvel’s latest small-screen streaming effort, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, is a deviation from the norm in several respects. Following Jennifer Walters, an ace attorney and cousin to Bruce Banner, the new series is a fourth-wall-breaking Ally McBeal-style workplace sitcom with a procedural format. It almost seems deliberately calibrated to annoy the kind of “fans” who would review-bomb the show’s IMDb page and call the heroine a Mary Sue.
The second episode got the ball rolling a little better and found the show really laying a foundation for what’s to come. Here’s what happened and everything we know about what’s coming:
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 1, episode 2 recap:
- Jen’s identity as the She-Hulk spreads like wildfire, resulting in her losing her job. She’s forced to take one with Holden Holliday for GLK&H, and her first client is Emil Blonsky.
- Blonsky claims to be reformed and has turned to haiku and the prison pen pal system. He thinks he was manipulated and abandoned by the U.S. government — and he has a point.
- After squaring the conflict of interest away with Bruce, he jets off into space.
- Jen also has to grapple with the idea of suddenly being wanted for her powers after a lifetime spent developing expertise in a male-dominated field.
- At the end of the episode, footage of Abomination fighting Wong in Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings makes the news, complicating the case.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 1, episode 3 release date:
The third episode is slated for release on Thursday, September 1, at 12 am PT, 3 am ET, and 8 am GMT, exclusively on Disney+. While most Disney+ shows have aired on either a Friday or, recently, a Wednesday, She-Hulk will be sticking with Thursdays.
Where to watch She-Hulk: Attorney at Law online
As mentioned above, She-Hulk is exclusive to Disney+, which is available with a subscription.
How many episodes will She-Hulk: Attorney at Law have?
In an unusual move the show is slated for a nine-episode run, however the episode runtimes are lower to account for this, with most seeming to clock in at around the half-hour mark.

Preview and predictions for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 1, episode 3:
While there’s no official synopsis available — you know how Disney are with these things — we can at least make some educated guesses.
- Bruce is likely gone for the long term now.
- I don’t see She-Hulk becoming a straight-up procedural, so I’m going to assume that Blonsky’s case won’t result in a courtroom battle. Or will it?
- Titania wasn’t seen in the second episode but was mentioned, so she’s going to reappear at some point, surely.
