Wong is back, She-Hulk is dating, and we may have met a relative of Ghost Rider?
The episode begins with a magic show featuring struggling magician, Donny Blaze. “Clip, Wong saying “Donny Blaze” using air quotes.]
Donny’s audience seems very uninterested in his magic act. Reason being that they live in a fantastical world with real magic. [clip, magicians offended by She-Hulk saying “real magic.”]
In a world with sorcerers, space gods, aliens, hulks, mad titans, time travel–I could go on. Fantastical events have become just another Monday for the citizens of the MCU.
So your run-of-the-mill, sleight of hand magician just doesn’t interest anyone anymore. Well unless you’re Jimmy Woo. [clip, impressed by Lang’s card trick.]
When we hear Donny reference [“The Great Billy Shakes”] he is actually referring to Willaim Shakespeare.
When Donny becomes desperate to wow his audicince, we see him pull out a sling ring. The same type of ring that Doctor Strange and Wong use to open portals to other locations and even different dimensions. [clip, Madisynn falling into Wong’s room and saying she was sent to a “dif demench”]
We see that Wong is watching the Sopranos Season 5 Episode 12 Long Term Parking. And he is 40 minutes and 32 seconds into the episode. Spoilers for a 12 year old episode that this show already spoiled. This is the final scene between Christopher and Adriana. [clip, Madisynn “this is the one where they kill Adrianna, it was so sad.” Wong “you just ruined it.”] It is easily the harshest breakup episode of TV of all time–which is approrptiate in an episode all about dating.
And going back real quick to before Madisynn with two N’s dropped into Wong’s room. We get a location title reading “Kathmandu, Nepal” which is where the Karma-Taj is located–and it’s also half the name of the worst bib seg ar song.
I think this means Wong is spending most of his time now as Sorcerer Supreme at the Karma Taj. Instead of at the Sanctum Sanctorum back in New York City with Doctor Strange. Assuming Doctor Strange is even there. [clip, Strange leaving with Clea.]
When we see Jen for the first time this episode, it’s almost as if we snuck up on her. [clip, “mmm, you look happy, I guess you saw Wong is back, it’s like giving the show Twitter armor for a week.]
That Twitter line being a reference to the relentless trolls who hate this show because they’re scared of women. Just like the haters we saw in the last episode who hate She-Hulk because she’s a woman. [clip, social media post scene from last week.]
On Jen’s to-do list we see tasks such as,
“Finalize Blonsky’s Injunction” – “Prepare guidance language for Blonsky inhibitor” –
“Call Emil’s parole officer”
All of these of course are in reference to last week’s episode where Jen successfully secured Emil Blonksy’s release on the condition he wear an inhibitor preventing him from turning into the Abomination. [clip]
Other tasks include, “order purple and green highlighters.” Purple and green being Hulk and She-Hulk’s signature colors.
“Finish Runa paperwork with Pug.” Runa being the shapeshifting light elf from last week’s episode. The paperwork is likely referring to either Runa owing Dennis Buwkowski monetary damages following the court ruling.
Or it could be referring to the post-credit scene that showed She-Hulk signing Megan the Stallion on as a new client. We theorized last week that Megan is probably suing Runa for impersonating her.
Next we have “buy and read ‘How to Make Friends and Influence People.” This is likely a reference to the book “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie.
