  • Banner emerges from one of his transformations to find a destroyed room and a dead model. He almost believes that the Hulk did it, but he starts looking for clues otherwise by posing as a valet for the modeling agency.moreless

    This episode has to be my favorite from the first season. It was one of the best written episodes in the series. I love that even though there is two Hulk-outs in this episode, we really only see the second Hulk-out. I loved the white eyes flashing on the first one when Banner is getting attacked by the dogs. Loni Anderson portrays evil pretty well. I liked how Banner managed to nearly give away his secret when he interrogates Loni in the garden. The ending was a nice twist, and the second Hulk-out was too cool. I liked when McGee took the credit for exposing the group responsible for the model's murder.moreless
  • Whodunnit?

    The first great "Hulk" mystery, "Of Guilt, Models, and Murder" is one of the best first season episodes, presenting the viewer and Banner with a true mystery revolving around a socialite's death and a gaggle of suspects.

    Of course, Banner fears the Hulk may be responsible, and the true murder(s) take advantage of the creature's convenient appearance to cover their tracks.

    Notable for beginning in medias res, with Banner transforming back from the creature and discoving the dead woman's body.moreless

      Sanderson: She's going to the police?
      David: Mmm-hmm. And the only way you can avoid blackmail charges is to go with her.
      Sanderson: Wait a minute. She told you that she was going to the police and you believed her?
      David: Yes.
      Sanderson: (laughs) You're out of you mind.
      Sheila: I'm afraid he's right, David. Because James didn't kill Terri, I did.

      TV Reporter: Well, what about the ah... creature?
      McGee: Well, the creature may be clear of this murder, but he's still a threat to society. I'll be here trying to track him down. I only hope the local police can say the same.
