Ending sequence

  • Another solid directing job by Colvin; the episode is quick and exciting
  • Hulk-out 1: Being fed poisoned sushi
  • Hulk-out 2: Tied up by the Chinese mob in San Francisco and thrown in his bathtub with the shower blasting scalding hot water on him


  • This episode was originally scripted under the title "The Golden Fleece"
  • This is the second (of two) Hulk episodes directed by Jack Colvin (The other was "Goodbye, Eddie Cain")
  • The start of the first "Hulk out" bears striking similarities to a scene from Bixby's 1973 film Steambath, in which his character dies after being poisoned at a Chinese restaurant
