In Marvel's What If..? Episode 7, What If... Thor Was An Only Child?, Thor's problem was a lot different than what he faced before when Odin sent him to Earth, in here, Thor seems to have an addiction that a lot of people can't stop – excessive partying – except for one, he could only be stopped by one person and that is none other than his mother, Frigga.

Not only Thor was afraid of a party-angry Frigga, but almost all of his guests and friends were also scared of her as well that all of them had to help Thor clean up the Earth of their party tracks and convince her that they are on a cultural immersion or something like that. Even Captain Marvel helped Thor get out of the mess he made. However, Mjolnir gave it away.

But what is most intriguing is what happened after Thor asked Jane on a date to a planet full of unicorns, it was the arrival of Ultron and it seems like he has taken over the body of Vision, to everyone's surprise, and more than that, he carries all the Infinity stones.

There is no comic book counterpart of this version of Vision and he was supposed to be the synthetic son of Ultron and in Avengers: Age of Ultron, he was supposed to be the host of Ultron. In this version, it seems like Marvel is making one of the most powerful big bad in the MCU with Vision, being a synthezoid, carrying all the six Infinity stones, five on his suit and one on his forehead.

What makes it uncanny is that, how would Vision use the stones if it is on his chest, on his suit? Surely, he can make a snap and still summon the power of all stones but who got the idea of doing so? Another is that how Vision got the soul stone. We all know that to get it, one has to sacrifice what he loved most. Did he sacrifice Wanda or something else?

All these questions seem to pile up but in all the episodes of What If..?, we're left with so many of them that it seems like we cannot have a conclusion as to what really happened next.

Marvel's What If..? Episode 7 is now streaming on Disney Plus.
