Episode 2 of “She-Hulk” opens with Jennifer being assigned to take charge of Blonsky’s case, and she’s hesitant to do so due to the Abomination’s past with Bruce. Since “The Incredible Hulk” was so largely forgotten in MCU history that fans were hesitant to consider it a normal occurrence until Abomination starred in “Shang-Chi”, it is interesting that “She -Hulk” is a direct reference to the events of Leterrier’s film. Blonsky tells Jennifer how the battle at Harlem establishes a direct connection between the character in the 2008 film and where he stands now. Surprisingly, no re-tuning is made here, and Blonsky/Abomination has a chance to atone. Plus, he actually seems remorseful.
Given the show’s comedic/sitcom-y tone, Abomination’s arc from obsessive super-criminal to semi-serious, repentant anti-hero is well-placed, and Bruce also reveals in the episode that he got it a sincere apology letter and a haiku from Blonsky. Furthermore, as seen in the trailers for “She-Hulk”, Wong’s participation in the events of “She-Hulk” makes Abomination’s presence all the more interesting. Since the two are already acquainted, (thanks to the fight in “Shang-Chi”), the characters may cross paths again in upcoming episodes. Since we don’t know what kind of relationship they share, it would be interesting if the show chooses to further explore their motivations.
Towards the end of episode 2, we see Jennifer taking on Blonsky’s case, but she’s greeted with the grim news of the green monster’s escape shortly after. Is the Abomination’s repentance real or is it a plot to go back to The Hulk, his arch-nemesis? The arc of the Abomination is still a work in progress, and it remains to be seen whether he is friend or foe of Jennifer Walters.
Episode 2 of “She-Hulk” airs on August 18, 2022 on Disney+.
