This episode open with a first when Jen says “previously on my show” as opposed to “previously on She-Hulk” like in prior episodes. If you remember last week, Jen had this to say when the Wrecker showed up. [clip]

So perhaps Jen is now taking a more hands on approach in the “previously on segment.” And the irritated tone in her voice could be due to her knowing this one doesn’t end well. [clip, Ruffalo interview “like most Marvel movies, this one doesn’t end well for the superheroes.”]

Cut to our first scene of the series with Vincent Patillo’s Leapfrog, kind of. We actually got a glimpse of him here in She-Hulk episode 5 picking up his costume from Luke Jacobson.

In that same episode we also got our first Daredevil tease. [clip, mask]

It’s fitting that Daredevil and Leapfrog be introduced in the same episode. Afterall, Leapfrog’s first appearance was in Daredevil #25 in 1966.

Leapfrog, also known as Frog Man, is a “villain” in the comics who has gone up against Daredevil, The Defenders, Iron Man, and Spider-Man. The MCU made a good choice in portraying him as a bit of a joke because, well, he is.

Now like I mentioned, Leapfrog got his suit from Luke Jacobson. And after his rocket launchers caught him on fire [clip]

And by the way, the sound of his failing boots [clip]. Is the sound of an old biplane engine failing, and this same sound effect was used by Sound designed ben burrt for the failing engines of the millennium falcon [clip].

He is now suing Jacobson. This of course is a conflict for Jennifer being that Luke also makes her suits. But, as Mr. Holliway points out, Leapfrog has signed a conflict of interest waiver, just like Emil Blonsky did so Jen could represent him. [clip]

Here we get another mention of Jen having won the Female Lawyer of the year award. [clip]

This award was first mentioned in the previous episode. [clip]

In court we see the return of Judge Price. He of course presided over the shapeshifting lightelf case from episode three. [clip]

We then see that Luke Jacobson’s lawyer is none other than Matt Murdock [clip]

Just like Matt is Luke’s client when it comes to superhero costumes, Luke is now Matt’s client when in legal trouble.

And actually, these two have faced off in the courtroom in the comics. Most memorably, in the recent brilliant run by Charles Soule and Javier Pulido. This series takes most of its characterization of Jen from that series, and the legendary run by the brilliant Dan Slott.

In that storyline, Captain America is being sued for the wrongful death of a friend of his form the 1940s. Long story short, this was before Steve got his powers, and he’s carried around the guilt of this detah for decades. So, hew anted to be tried in court for it. So he asked Jen to be his defense attorney, and encouraged Matt Murdock to take up the case against him. Essentially, he wanted to make sure that his friend’s family got the best representation available to them.

It turns out one of the family was a Nazi, his friend’s death was an accident, and the whole thing was being orchestrated by one of Cap’s villains to ruin his repuatian–but we still got to see Jen and Matt go head to head in a legal proceeding.

Doug: So what’s going on with Matt? Is that daredevil Netflix show in the MCU, or not? Like Kingpin seemed different and super strong, and now Matt Murdock is cracking jokes when he was all serious in the netflix show [clip, him hitting kingpin i final episode].

Let me explain. I think that the Netflix Daredevil shows actually occurred in another timeline–like the multiple timelines we saw in Loki. But, the events in that universe very closely mirrored what happened in the MCU.
