Maybe its just me, but I really liked this episode.  Being a Agents of SHIELD fan, I will also love Phil being involved in the MCU.

SLJ and Clark Gregg were on point, Lake Bell was great as a ScarJo replacement, to the point I didn't realize it wasn't ScarJo until the credits.

I really didn't like E2.  It seems like, since Chadwick Boseman was in ill health, they wanted to make T'Challa perfect.  He can do no wrong, and everyone is better by meeting him.  It just came off as hollow to me

Edit: How long until The Watchers "I cannot, I should not, I must not interfere" gets thrown out and he interferes?

I think the only reason I really liked what they did with Episode 2 was because of the last scene of the episode was that all his good actually doomed the galaxy because there was nobody to deal with Ego.

Episode 3 was fantastic.  Mostly it was fun to see the Avengers get killed off like that and I honestly did not guess who it was until it was obvious.

I...don't think it was that bleak?

It was basically an episode of Doctor Who, where The Doctor tries to change a fixed point in time and learns he can't.  Except this time he could, and the result was a disaster.

And also, we're getting closer to The Watcher inferring

It was pretty bleak, but predictably so. I agree that it was very Doctor Who, and called the "he can't prevent it from happening no matter what he does" story almost immediately.

The Trevor Slattery one-shot has been added to Disney+ recently, and it annoyed me that it's set up as a documentary, and then not filmed or presented as one at all.

fucking Hank Pym, dude. Jesus! He's the true multiverse threat, apparently.

Spoiler

I didn't expect the zombie virus to come from the Quantum Realm. Wasp doing the Ant-Man/Thanos meme to Sharon Carter is fucking hilarious, Okoye slicing Falcon clean in half was something ("That was your friend, I'm sorry." / "I should feel bad, but I don't."), Vision being a monster and feeding parts of T'Challa and other humans to a zombie Wanda, and then Vision just straight up just kills himself... and to top it all off, ZOMBIE THANOS, with the Infinity Gauntlet nearly completed, ends the episode.

They kept some story beats from the original comic (Vision feeding Wanda T'Challa's body parts is Hank & T'Challa in the comics, Scott Lang being just a head is actually Janet in the source material, etc)

This one might be my favorite, honestly.

I really liked this episode, but it does seem to be stretching...
 

Spoiler

 

Why was zombie Thanos even in Wakanda?  In Infinity War, he was there because thats where the Mind Stone was.  In this, for a long period of time the Mind Stone was in New Jersey.  He would've been one of the many zombies outside of Camp Lehigh who couldn't enter it.. 

And why did Hope not shrink down to human size so she wouldn't become a giant fucking zombie?  It just made no sense

Tiny zombie is more dangerous. That's how Cap was taken down.

It was shown through the episode how each zombie retained use of their powers/skills so there no reason to suggest that she couldn't simply decide to turn giant after she turned anyway.

Besides, I'd imagine zombies eating your eyeballs and face would be an overwhelming experience, enough to make you not think "hey, maybe I should shrink back down to normal size!"

As for the ending: nothing really changed from Infinity War Thanos' conquest to this version's conquest, apparently. Ebony Maw & Cull Obsidian still appeared in New York shortly after Bruce Banner crash landed at the Sanctum Santorum, and Thanos still appears in Wakanda when he completes his quest for the other five Infinity Stones.

The sequence of events might have changed for the Infinity War, like Iron Man and Dr. Strange fighting Thanos on Titan earlier than expected), but it still happened presumably. They both appeared together through a portal, and Strange already lost the Time stone to Thanos, so...

What If;

Spoiler

It's an interesting one, because this time around Thanos is kind of right. By wiping out 50% of the population, chances are you're taking out the majority of the zombies, and there's even a possibility that you get the bulk of the zombies and save some survivors, who knows? 

I was disappointed that it was mostly a bit of a generic zombie story, though. Before the Marvel Zombies comics went completely insane, I liked that their approach was that the infection only affected people with superpowers. You had interesting dynamics like The Punisher trying to fight alongside Deadpool and Wolverine, who were able to hold off the infection through their regenerative powers.

 

A fun thing I read over the weekend about Thanos, that's not really an MCU thing but still funny. There's a hero called Gorilla-Man. He's ageless, but stuck in the body of a gorilla. He became Gorilla-Man by killing the previous Gorilla-Man. Presumably, that curse carries over, and anyone who kills the current Gorilla-Man becomes the new Gorilla-Man.

Which means that when Thanos wipes out 50% of the population, there's a 50/50 chance that doing so would have transformed him into a gorilla.

I did not like this episode all that much. And it ended very abruptly. But, jesus - the body count wasn't super high or anything, but it packs a punch.

Wasn't crazy about it, but I liked this version of Killmonger.  Calculating, many steps ahead of everyone else.  Was a good portrayal I thought

Speaking of Killmonger, i'm kinda sad that they killed him off in Black Panther because I feel he could've easily came back ala Daniel Bruhl/Zemo and be a recurring character whose got a loose code that can see them bend themselves into working for the heroes at some points whilst also furthering his own agenda.

I've been reading stuff, and I don't remember Black Panther enough to recall if its true, but we never see him die.  He asks to be left alone on the coast of Wakanda.  So there might be a chance he's still alive
