I know I'm late talking about the final, but honestly I didn't love it.  Breaking the fourth wall was part of She-Hulk comics, so I'm cool with that, I just thought it was overdone in the last episode.  I also didn't like the K.E.V.I.N. robot, we all know it represented Kevin Feige, so if you're going to go there, have She-Hulk go talk to Feige.  An AI robot running the company seems a little too silly, for my taste anyway.

It took me some time to decide if I liked it or not, but after thinking about it I am kind of feeling the same way. If they wanted to do an ending with no big fight, I think I would rather they just do that rather than the whole breaking the fourth wall and talking to the writers/Kevin thing. Especially since they have basically called out how that kind of ending sucks and the next time a Marvel show has a big finale episode battle, even if it works within the story, it's going to look bad.

But while Tony was shown getting his fun it was portrayed as a character flaw. Especially in comparison to Steve Rogers, as the entire Infinity Saga did, where many made the argument that he probably died a virgin because he didn't marry Agent Carter during WWII 

People's mileage will vary, but in the original Iron Man, Tony's playboy ways were not portrayed as a character flaw at all. It was  definitely portrayed that he was cool for being so studly that he could seduce a reporter who was critical of him, that he had slept with most of the Maxim cover models in a given year, that he had flight attendants who would dance around a stripper pole for him and Rhodey. The only pushback he got for his playboy ways was from Pepper, and it was portrayed as at least partial jealousy.

Nice 4th-wall breaking, but if you really want to see a show take itself apart, watch Supernatural's "The French Mistake". I wouldn't dream of spoiling the dozens of ways it does so..:)

I heard someone say that the She-Hulk series was trying to be Fleabag.  Having recently binge watched Fleabag, I do see a lot of similarities between the two series.  I would be very surprised if I learned that She-Hulk was not influenced by it.
