She-Hulk episode 5 fans react to Titania and Jen Walters court battle, Daredevil’s yellow helmet, X-Men & Fantastic Four easter egg & more

She-Hulk episode 5 may have been a bit of a letdown for Daredevil fans who tuned in expecting to see Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox). But it wasn’t a complete disappointment since the ending offered some breadcrumbs for viewers with a teasing glimpse of the yellow helmet worn by the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. Although the fifth episode did not include a post-credits gag – the animated closing credit has a surprising easter egg referencing X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool. Here’s a recap of the standout moments from the fifth chapter.

In She-Hulk episode 5 titled “Mean, Green and Poured Straight into These Jeans” Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany) is forced to fight a lawsuit for identifying as She-Hulk, the name trademarked by Titania. While Jen tries to ignore the case, Holden Holliway (Steve Coulter) fears it could jeopardize GLK&H’s brand image, specifically the superhuman law division, and tasks She-Hulk’s case to Mallory Book (Renée Elise Goldsberry), as revealed in the preview clip. Meanwhile, Titania (Jameela Jamil) has already launched a luxurious new line of skincare, beauty and wellness products using the name.

Nikki (Ginger Gonzaga) once again comes in clutch for She-Hulk by finding a costume designer for her super-human-sized physique, with a bit of help from Pug’s (Josh Segarra) drip broker. Pug and Nikki’s humorous dynamic was undoubtedly the highlight of She-Hulk episode 5.

After bribing their way (buying a pair of Avongers T-shirts and matching hat) into finding the “exclusive” superhero costume designer, Luke – Nikki convinces him to produce a suit that fits both as Jennifer and as She-Hulk for the potential Avenger. Over at GLK&H, She-Hulk faces an awkward run-in with one of her Matcher’s app dates, Todd (Jon Bass). His creepy prying personality may be due to deeper motives at play. Readers can check out fan reactions below.

According to the credits, Bass’s character was also described as “Hulk-Todd”. Perhaps his interest in She-Hulk as a “specimen” may be linked to the gang of criminals that attempted to get Jen’s gamma-radiated DNA in episode 3. In addition, there’s also speculation that this could be the first hint at Marvel setting up the Intelligencia, a villain ensemble that is up to no good in Marvel Comics.

On the plus side, meeting Todd helps She-Hulk realize she identified as her pseudonym on the dating app and calls upon her dates to testify. Aside from dealing with the courtroom embarrassment,  the case turns in her favor, leading to Jen finding a new friend in Mallory.

Over at Luke’s superhero fashion store, She-Hulk finally dons her business suit and superhero costume though viewers will have to wait for episode 6 to see her in the new attire. Nonetheless, the fifth episode ends with a tease to Daredevil, revealing his yellow armored headgear. Unfortunately, this seems to confirm MCU’s version of Daredevil won’t feature Melvin Potter as Matt Murdock’s suit designer, as established in the Netflix series.

She-Hulk episode 5 excludes the post-credits scene but has a nod for Marvel’s yet-to-be-introduced heroes like Cyclops from the X-Men, Ben Grimm/The Thing from Fantastic Four and Deadpool as easter eggs, in the form of Pug’s sneaker collection. This is the second time the Disney Plus series has addressed Mutants after episode 2’s Wolverine hint. It remains to be seen what more She-Hulk: Attorney at Law has to offer before season 1’s conclusion but stay tuned to learn about the expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.
