    Are you a time traveler from the 50s-80s era before people knew how to use pause and rewind? I always wanted to find the time travelers online, but I kind of assumed they'd be from the future...

    I was going to make a bad joke about mansplaining the show but I thought better of it.

    Sarah, Helena, Cosima, Alison and Rachel… those were the 5 primary clones, right?
    She played a few more versions, 14 or so apparently (including a gender swapped clone), but those amounted more to “guest stars”?

    Krystal and M.K. were more than just guest stars and let's not forget the importance of Beth, but you're right those five are the core characters she played.

    Mika, Beth, and Krystal are essential to the story as well, but they are of lesser importance than those five, more minor, appearing less frequently.

    Dennis is great. He could out do Flashman in a toad Olympics.

    Another fun and entertaining episode.

    And I enjoyed:

    Bruce:.."I'm a completely different person now...literally."

    Jen (sorta 4th wall): "ha ha!"


    Also like that yes they ARE following up on why the alien ship in the first episode showed up and Banner appears to be returning to Sakar for a reason. (Don't know if they will follow up in this series or its a tie in to something in the MCU future, project/film wise.)

    Also enjoyed the last scene of the actual episode where they tie into the Abomination appearance in Shang Chi and the Ten Rings.

    It's a nice simple and amusing tie in.

    I have a theory, Wong is taking Blonsky out of is cell to fight to let off steam, keep his rage down, it's to actually help him stay cool. To stop Abomination from coming out when he shouldn't.

    Yeah, but then that flies in the face of the "setting up Thunderbolts" theory... He'd have to be out of jail to be in the Thunderbolts I think...

    Does Bruce going off into space now contradict the post credits in Shang-Chi? Unless Bruce fucks his arm up again while out in lala land and has reverted back to human form for healing purposes.

    Not at all. The timeline goes like this:

    - Wong/Abomination have their fight in the pit 'a few months ago'
    - Banner meets Shang-Chi/Katy in human (hologram) form, still with a bad arm
    - The accident / Jen becomes She-Hulk / Bruce's arm is healed
    - A few months later, Jen's forced to Hulk out in public (thanks Titania), then gets hired for the Blonsky case. The Sakaarian ship shows up again, and this time Bruce gets on it.
    - Somebody's been holding on to that bootleg footage of the pit fight from months ago, saw the news story about Blonsky's coming parole hearing, and decided now was the perfect time to leak it to the press and derail Blonsky's bid for freedom.

    Maybe the cage fight wasn't a one time thing and Wong took Blonski out of prison on a regular basis without anyone noticing?

    A minor trivia note. The John Byrne and Dan Slott runs on She-Hulk may be the primary sources of inspiration for the show, but the original 25 issue run, written entirely by David Anthony Kraft following Stan Lee's first issue, is paid homage to as well. In Kraft's run, while Jen was deputy district attorney, the bane of her existence was an asshole lawyer by the name of Dennis Bukowski, played here in the first two episodes by Drew Matthews

    Tiny quibble, but I'd amend "perfect time to leak it to the press and derail Blonsky's bid for freedom." with "perfect time to cash in and sell it to some sensationalist media rag." ;)

    Another possibility is that The Contessa is the one that leaked it to maintain some control over Blonsky, because of course he's on her recruiting wishlist. I mean he's not liable to be interested in coming to work for her if he's happy on his private groupie commune. (That's assuming of course that the "seven soulmates" isn't code for the Thunderbolts, and he's been clandestinely corresponding with The Contessa through the prison pen-pal system since he got transferred out of the SHIELD cryo-cell.)
