What Happened in Marvel's What If..? Episode 5?
In Marvel's What If..? Episode 5, What If.. Zombies?!, Hulk was sent to Earth by Heimdall to warn Earth about the arrival of Thanos, the world already went mad as it has been run over by zombies that even the Avengers succumbed to the virus transforming them into flesh-eating monsters and that made the world a ghost town.
New York was deserted and when he came face to face with Cull Obsidian and Ebony Maw, he was saved by the zombies, only to be prey to them. He had to face zombies Stark, Wong, and Doctor Strange. With the help of the cape of Doctor Strange, Banner survived the zombie heroes just in time for Hope and the rest to save him.
They were hiding in the middle of buildings, a series of hallways put together and webbed by Spider-Man, suspended in mid-air, a genius idea that makes them unreachable by any zombie unless they're flying like Falcon.
Hope explained that it was her research that started everything. Like that in Ant-Man and The Wasp, she did everything she could to bring back her mother and Hank Pym went to the quantum realm to get her. However, in this reality, Janet Van Dyne contracted a virus there, one that turns people into zombies. Hope said that she wanted to bring her mother so much, she did not think of the repercussions.
They intercepted a message from New Jersey that a cure has been found. They had to take the train and, in the station, they were attacked by Hawkeye and Falcon, costing them Happy. In their journey, they came across Captain America who Bucky killed. However, Sharon was killed in the process and when Hope had to take her down, she was exposed.
When they arrived, it was Vision who got a way to both keep the zombies at bay, not even bothering that the fence got destroyed, and a cure, a way to reverse the process and have the zombies become human once more. He found out that the mind stone can emit a sub-frequency keeping the zombies at bay as encephalopathy affects the brain, and Vision reversed the process by targeted exposure.
To do this, they need the frequency to be broadcasted through a satellite strong enough to reach the corners of the Earth, something Wakanda has. However, Vision's agenda is not lodged on saving the whole world, he intended it for Wanda, who got infected. T'Challa was there and warned them. To get out, Vision had a change of heart and tore off the mind stone off of his forehead.
Wanda got mad and they all had difficulties getting out. Okoye, Kurt, Bucky, and Hulk were left behind. Hulk had to hold off Wanda. Only Peter, Scott, and T'Challa got through. On their way to Wakanda, it was shown that Thanos was there, a zombified version of him, wearing the gauntlet with five infinity stones, waiting for the mind stone to complete all six. Since he is already a zombie, what he would do for the snap remains unknown.
Marvel's What If..? Episode 6 Theories, Spoilers, and Leaks
Now that was some episode, right? A few questions remain as the ending is open-ended. They could have been successful or not but that will surely be a tough one as only three of them remained, possibly two and a half, sorry, Scott. Since he is just ahead flown by the cape of Doctor Strange, and T'Challa lost a leg, only Peter Parker would be able to face Thanos with all his might.
Still, the Mad Titan holds five Infinity Stones. He is also a zombie so that would be more difficult, unless, they devise a plan, maybe distract him with something to eat to get the gauntlet. If there was a way to get Wanda there, someone could destroy Thanos even when being a zombie. Hopefully, there would be another episode dedicated to this arc.
Marvel's What If..? Episode 6 is expected to be about Killmonger saving Tony Stark from the bomb and they became the best of friends. He becomes a hero so what will happen to that? Will he be honored by Wakanda or will he attack the place using Stark's weapons?
