What If Season 2 Episode 4 Review: Gamora Attempts to Kill Tony Stark

We had our first “Previously On” after four episodes! If What If Season 2 Episode 4 is going to present stories with universe-altering repercussions, so it’s understandable that they won’t be able to wrap up all of them satisfactorily in a 30-minute block. One of my major annoyances with this season of What If…? Season 2 has been the ongoing tales, but Episode 4, “What If…Iron Man Crashed Into the Grandmaster?” has the unique distinction of being both a continuation of Season 1 and something entirely new.

What Is the Story of What If Season 2 Episode 4?

The Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) begins by recalling the “Guardians of the Multiverse,” a group of heroes who banded together to combat Ultron (Ross Marquand) after he took control of all of the Infinity Stones. This story he wants to portray today, he explains, is about Gamora (Cynthia McWilliams) rising to greatness to become one of the aforementioned Guardians — but it all starts with someone else’s, specifically Tony Stark’s (Mick Wingert).

Tony is able to send the nuclear bomb aimed at New York through the wormhole on time in this version, but the portal closes behind him, preventing him from coming home and having shawarma with the crew. Fortunately, instead of dying alone in the frigid, airless void of space, Tony hurtles through another wormhole and crashes lands in the Grandmaster’s (Jeff Goldblum) palace on Sakaar. Tony has seen his fair share of strange things recently, but this one takes the cake. The Grandmaster is overjoyed to see Tony, as “Mr. Metal Mojo Man,” who destroyed the Chitauri. What was a few seconds for Tony has become a few days for everyone on Sakaar, much as in Thor: Ragnarok.

In What If season 2 Episode 4, Tony is eager to return home, especially now that they have triumphed and Pepper Potts is alive, but The Grandmaster insists on him staying for a party, even enlisting the support of Topaz (Rachel House) through not-so-subtle threats. The event in question comprises a visit to the combat arena, which has been converted into a racecourse.

Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) is a driver who utterly crushes the competition—until her car tips over and she’s bombarded with tin cans and beautiful chinchillas. The Grandmaster unleashes a massive elephant-like beast on the surviving racers, including Korg (Taika Waititi), and Tony can no longer stand by and watch, suiting up and joining everyone down in the arena. He tries to repel the thing with his repulsors, but they fail. Regardless, the beast explodes.

In What If Season 2 Episode 4: Gamora Attempts to Kill Tony Stark

What’s the reason? Gamora, who has come to exact vengeance on Tony Stark in What If season 2 Episode 4. They are both detained and placed in a spacious room with only one bed. However, this is not a romance fiction trope for two reasons: 1. Korg is with them, and 2. Gamora is still attempting to assassinate Tony. I’ve read enough romance novels to know that neither of these things are deterrents, but I digress.

Tony eventually demands that Gamora reveal who she is and why she wants him dead. She reveals herself as Thanos’ daughter, which seems sufficient explanation and justification for Tony to open the door and depart. Korg joins him, but they close the door before Gamora can follow.

Tony’s attempts to sneak off are foiled by Korg, and their ensuing argument gives Gamora enough time to catch up after all. She blows up their ride out as well as the wall behind it, which alerts the Grandmaster, who orders the Sakaar people to find Tony. Tony doesn’t understand why Thanos wants him dead until Gamora explains it to him: Thanos sent the Chitauri as part of his plan. Tony is taken aback, but he didn’t have access to The Avengers’ mid-credits scene to provide some light on the situation.
