The finale of What If was today, and though I’ve had some pretty big quibbles with this show I liked it overall. But I was so confused when Gamora showed up! Pleased but confused, because despite her being on the posters we’d seen absolutely nothing regarding her so far?
Turns out her episode was cancelled due to COVID restrictions and it’ll be on next year! That’s something to look forward to I guess, but as soon I saw her on the poster I was really looking forward to that episode, couldn’t they have cut the Party Thor one instead?
Anyway! Some thoughts on that finale:
-Black Widow and Captain Carter were giving each other some very significant looks in that episode but of course Disney wouldn’t go there.
-Frankly the last five or so minutes of this episode felt like a better tribute to Natasha than the actual Black Widow movie did.
-How can you all not guess Killmonger would betray you? He has “kill” in his name!
-Blink and you’ll miss this, but T’Challa went back to get Peter Quill and now they’re bros! Oh that’s nice. Wonder if we’ll get any of that in season two.
-The revelation of a living Steve at the end of the credits was expected, but I really wish Peggy would get at least one ending that doesn’t involve Steve.
