very suspenseful and almost without the hulk
2 May 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

For me this is so far the best Hulk episode and maybe for some it's strange because the hulk isn't that much to see here in this airplane disaster. Finally David has found a doctor who can help him with his problems but once he wants to make an appointment the doctor has left to Chicago. Up to David to take a plane to Chicago. But on the plane the pilot and a stewardess wants to steel artifacts from ages ago. David sits against an old couple and when the man wants a coffee he takes one himself not knowing that the coffee has been drugged to take out the crew. Of course as being a doctor David notice that somethings wrong on board.

Very quickly he has a fight as the hulk but once the plane doesn't has a crew anymore it's David who's becoming the hero. You have to wait until almost the end before he changes again. His last change is something special and not seen before. He changes in half hulk half David and it takes a while he stays that way. That's something we haven't seen before. But not having the hulk that much in this episode you will keep watching it with full suspense until the end. I've said it before but Bill is playing his role in an excellent way.
