Marvel's What If..?Episode 7 is full of surprises as it lightened the tone of the canon series with Thor throwing a global party on Earth. There were no extreme drama nor deaths in this run of the show and fans and viewers are to be delighted with laughter throughout. Still, it is not an episode to be discarded as it has tons of easter eggs and here is all of it.
All the Easter Eggs in Marvel's What If..? Episode 7
Jane Foster, Darcy Lewis, and their Van in the Middle of a Desert
It is the same van, and the same people, well, sans Selvig, from Thor in 2011, and they were also looking out for some anomaly from outer space. However, this time, they didn't run over Thor, instead, they followed the bifrost surge to Las Vegas where Thor threw a huge party.
The Man on the Pineapple Shirt
It is a callback, a nod to the director of Thor: Ragnarok and Love & Thunder, Taika Waititi, as the classic pineapple shirt was seen on him twice: one during a Comic-Con, and one when Korg, his character, was wearing during while playing with Thor in Endgame.
The Original Asgardian Team Minus Loki
Thor, along with the Warriors Three and Lady Sif, went to Las Vegas to party. In Thor (2011), they used to visit realms together, however, not to party, but to fight off baddies. Also, they have Loki with them but since in this one, Thor grew up without him, there are only five of them instead of six.
Thor and Loki's Relationship and the "Fate of a Universe"
As Uatu puts it, the relationship of Thor and Loki as brothers has "changed the fate of a universe" like that in the original timeline where both of them could go beyond any bound to be there for each other despite bickering or quarreling at times. Thor became more motivated to kill Thanos who took the life of Loki before his very eyes.
In Thor (2011), the Odinsleep was what allowed Loki to get control of Asgard. However, here, it was used by Frigga as vacation time and letting Odin rest while nothing is really happening in the realms, except maybe Thor throwing a party on Midgard.
Infinity Gauntlet in Odin's Vault
As they passed the vault of Odin, the infinity gauntlet was shown and it is not like the fake one that Hela spotted. It is the same left-handed one that Thanos used in Infinity War.
Kraglin and a Ravager Drinking with Sif and Pineapple Shirt Guy
Attending the party is Kraglin with the classic mohawk he wears and along with his was another Ravager wearing what seems to be a uniform.
Skurge, not The Executioner, but The Party-Goer
Skurge arrived and he was immediately welcomed by Thor with a hug and while he seems to be uncomfortable, he went along with it. It could be remembered that he was in Thor: Ragnarok where he sacrificed his life for the safety of the Asgardians. Thor also quoted his never-ending drinking of beer like the one Doctor Strange did to him. "Like magic."
Ships from Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor
There were various ships in the sky like an Asgardian skiff, a Ravager ship, a ship from Sakaar, even some from the Sovereign as well.
Skrulls Looking Like Thor
Skrulls also attended the party and they had some fun while being with Thor, shapeshifting into his likeness. Skrulls were last seen in WandaVision where one of them went to Monica Rambeau.
Grandmaster and Topaz Eating Cake
They were invited in the party as well and they were digging into the cake. Topaz still holds the melting stick, something not to bring to a party, maybe? Anyway, the Grandmaster loves to party!
Gary the Goat
Fandral got so drunk, he named a goat Gary when he woke up next to him and this was a reference to the 1988 Marvel comic, Fandral Follies, oh, and there was a goat there as well.
DJ Grandmaster and Let There Be Foam
The Grandmaster really loves parties and it could be seen when he played the DJ at the party and stopped the music calling foam to fall on the partygoers.
Korg and Nebula Gambling
Would it be called Vegas without gambling? Nebula and Korg experiences it firsthand and Nebula was in it to win it!
Valkyrie, Drax, and Sif on the Bar
Sharing a common love for beer, Drax and Valkyrie are on the side of the bar with Sif dancing on the side. We all know how much Valkyrie loves her liquors as shown in Ragnarok.
Darcy and Howard the Duck Gets Married Before an Elvis Impersonator
Love Me Tender, like the song, is what is written on the book held by the fake Elvis and Darcy and Howard the Duck got married. Would their marriage last? Both of them are always talking and bickering.
Thor and Jane's Couple Tattoos
What a cute couple, right? They put on each other's expertise, inked on their arms, with Jane having the Mjolnir with the word Magic and Thor having the microscope and the word science. Their respective specialties on each other, how sweet!
Drunk Rocket in the Sink
This one is a nod to The Hangover, a 2009 comedy film, and the movie of the voice of rocket, Bradley Cooper, after a mad night and waking up in a room in Vegas. When Rumlow as also talking to Jane, it could be heard in the background that Thor was laughing because there was a "rabbit in the sink."
SHIELD Helicarrier Fetching Jane and Darcy
The SHIELD Helicarrier remains to be the base of the organization wherever they go. This time, it is in Nevada in their efforts to stop Thor from throwing a party anywhere he goes on Earth.
The Beeper and Captain Marvel's Insignia
Same as the one with Fury, the one they had in Captain Marvel and the one he used to call her in Avengers: Infinity War before being blipped, Maria Hill and Rumlow calls the beeper their "last resort" in order to stop Thor from partying.
The Sovereign, Ayesha, and Thor in a Selfie
The Golden High Priestess of the Sovereign from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is back and they opt to take a selfie with Thor with the "peace" pose. Surprisingly, they are not new to technology as they know how to use a phone. Do the have those in their planet?
Loki Frost Giant Variant
When Loki arrived at the party along with other frost giants, we all saw the variant teased in Loki where he fully embraced being a frost giant and the prince of Jotunheim in a timeline where he grew up with his father, Laufey.
Thor and Loki, "Brothers from different mothers"
It is not lost, not at all, despite growing up apart, Loki and Thor still has that sense of brotherhood between them that they seem to be destined to be brothers whatever happens.
Is that Tahiti?
In one of the scenes where Thor and Captain Marvel were travelling the world and punching each other, a scenery looks like Tahiti, the name of the protocol which revived Coulson after his "almost death" in the first Avengers movie.
Thor Putting Down Captain Marvel with the Mjolnir
A classic trick of Thor, he puts the Mjolnir on the chest of Captain Marvel so she could not move given that only those who are worthy could lift the hammer. He did this to Loki once already. Sorry, Danvers, Thor got a point here. Not to mention partygoers calling her a party pooper.
Surtur Flirts with the Statue of Liberty
Even villains know how to party! Surtur was caught one too many times flirting with the Statue of Liberty and in this timeline, they seem to be almost the same size. Did Surtur shrink or can he adjust himself to the height he prefers?
The Casket of Ancient Winters
Used by Loki in Thor (2011) when he found out he was a frost giant, in this alternate reality, it still belongs to Jotunheim and it was even used by the frost giants to put ice on the faces on Mount Rushmore.
Frigga and Dark Magic
As a witch, Frigga can summon Dark Magic and she could manifest herself to someone anywhere in the universe but it will consume or use a lot of it though. If she could see into the future, like what they said in Endgame, why didn't she see the party of Thor on Earth coming?
Mantis Attends the Party
Among the partygoers is Mantis who dances with the others but interrupted when Thor announced that Frigga is coming.
Tower of Pisa is Not Leaning Anymore
A homage to what Superman did when he straightened the leaning Tower of Pisa, Thor did the same when doing a cleanup of his mess and removing any trace of partying on Earth as Frigga is about to arrive.
The Famous Captain Marvel
She is known to roam across different galaxies to help, even Frigga knows who she is. Wonder how popularity in the galaxy happens? Thanos didn't recognize her, is it just Frigga knowing because she is a witch or is Captain Marvel really that famous?
Vision Ultron, an evil program putting himself on a synthezoid, that is already much of a threat but this one has all the six infinity stones! How powerful of a threat could this be? Vision Ultron has no comic book counterpart of this version of Vision. Had Ulton became successful in Avengers: Age of Ultron, this might be the result.
