‘She/Hulk’ Episode 6 REVIEW
With the newest MCU entering its final stretch, this may be one of the series all-around best episodes yet; this is our She/Hulk episode 6 review.
When She/Hulk was announced, it was very different from the typical MCU show in two major ways; every episode was set to be markedly shorter than the usual 45 minutes, and it would have a longer initial season with 9 episodes.
We are well on our way to the end of the first season, with just three entries to go, and She/Hulk episode 6 may well be the most complete episode to date.
Although last week had teased the return of Matt Murdock’s Daredevil, this entry took a drastic turn, as saw Jen attend a wedding of an old high school friend.
The episode brought back the character of Titania, and engaged the two enemies, but explored what seems to be the key narrative foundation of the entire story; Jennifer Walters difficulty navigating life as two separate identities.
It has been developing since the very first episode, the dichotomy between the world’s adoration for She/Hulk, the world’s constant overlooking of Jennifer Walters, and the feelings that come with feeling like her actual identity is just isn’t good enough.
As always, the series is chalked full of hilarious moments, and brilliant side characters, but it is once again Tatiana Maslany who is utterly fantastic in the title role.
She continues to bring an earnest charm to Jen, and is relentlessly endearing to the audience; so much so that you just can’t help but root for her.
Her performance, however, is made the most of by what is a brilliant writer in Jessica Gao, who seems to be an expert at crafting characters in short bursts and making the most of the allotted time; with every episode filled to the brim with hilarious and entertaining content in every frame.
