A new clip from She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 7 reveals the surprise return of Tim Roth’s Emil Blonsky. The latest MCU show to hit Disney+, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law introduces audiences to Jennifer Walters (Tatiana Maslany), a California lawyer who struggles to balance her career with her newfound ability to transform into the superhero She-Hulk. The series has been a big hit with critics but slightly more divisive with audiences, with many praising Maslany’s performance as She-Hulk, the show’s humor, the self-contained nature of its episodes, and the surprising guest stars.
First introduced in 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, Blonsky, aka Abomination, made a surprise return in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 2. With Blonsky serving time in a maximum security prison, Walters takes him on as a client, eventually helping him get released on parole. Since being released from prison, Blonsky has been absent from the series, with more recent episodes of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law focusing on Walters butting heads with Titania (Jameela Jamil). Although fans are anxiously awaiting an appearance from Charlie Cox’s Daredevil, Roth’s more laid-back portrayal of Blonsky has also been a major highlight of the show for many viewers.
Now, courtesy of TVLine, a new clip from She-Hulk: Attorney at Law episode 7 teases Emil Blonsky’s return. The short clip sees Blonsky, enjoying his newfound freedom, introduce Walters to two new characters: Man Bull (Nate Hurd) and El Aguila (Joseph Castillo-Midyett). The short clip suggests that Blonsky has been a mediator of sorts for the two new heroes as they work through some differences. Check out the clip from episode 7 by clicking the link below:
From his first scene in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Roth’s Blonsky has attempted to prove to Walters (and audiences) that he is a changed man. Before his appearance in the show, however, the character was laying waste to city blocks and attempting to kill Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) in The Incredible Hulk. So far, it’s not clear whether Blonsky is being truthful about his newfound inner peace or if he remains just as devious and destructive as audiences last saw him, but the latest clip suggests he might actually be a changed man.
The latest clip established Blonsky as something of a mentor to Man Bull and El Aguila, which is further proof that he really has attempted to turn his life around. It remains to be seen, however, whether the Abomination within him still represents any type of threat. With She-Hulk: Attorney at Law setting up a villainous force known as the Intelligencia, who seem to want to secure a vial of Walters’ blood in order to weaponize it, it’s unclear what side Blonsky will fall on in the episodes ahead and how big a role he will play.
