SHE-HULK Writer Jessica Gao Says She "Really Struggled" With The Show's Divisive Season Finale

The season finale of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law took a few unexpected twists and turns - not all of which were entirely successful - and writer Jessica Gao has now admitted to struggling with the episode.

It's probably fair to say She-Hulk: Attorney at Law wasn't everyone's cup of tea, but even some viewers who were fully on board with the Disney+ show's particular brand of humor felt the recent season finale left a lot to be desired.

The episode built to an action-packed - if more than a little contrived - conclusion, with She-Hulk, Titania, Abomination, Smug Hulk (sorry, Bruce) and the villainous HulkKing all set to throw down. At this point, Jen decides that she doesn't want a predictable ending, and breaks the fourth wall by literally climbing through the Disney+ menu screen.

Walters makes her way to the Marvel Studios writer' room to demand an audience with Kevin Feige... only to discover that the mastermind behind the MCU is actually an artificial intelligence known as Knowledge Enhanced Visual Interconnectivity Nexus (or, K.E.V.I.N.)

After asking for an ending more in-keeping with the tone of the show, Jen was given a happier send-off with a family get-together involving Matt Murdock, her cousin, and his son, Skaar.

In the new episode of Marvel Studios: Assembled, She-Hulk head writer Jessica Gao admits that the team did struggle to come up with an appropriate ending for the finale.

"We really, really struggled with the finale. We started off doing a lot of versions of the finale that were much more just like straight and very, very Marvel movie, you know, and it just never felt right for us to just end in a big set piece fight, and take out the bad guy, and it just always felt like, ‘Oh, it’s a different show now.’"

Gao reveals that it was actually Feige (the man, not the robot) who pointed out that a typical Marvel "final battle" just wouldn't have worked for the series.

"Kevin [Feige] was the first to kind of pinpoint that. He was like, ‘This isn’t a Marvel movie. So why are you trying to make it end like a Marvel movie? That’s not what the show is.’ And it was just really, really wonderful and freeing for him to say that.”

Based on some of the criticism we've heard, it wasn't so much the idea fans had a problem with, but the execution. Then again, a lot of people seemed to love the finale and wouldn't change a thing about it.

Where do you guys stand on the episode and the season as a whole? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
