What If…? Episode 2 Recap: What Happened in “What If…? Episode 2”?
What If Episode 2 was titled ‘What If… T’Challa Became a Star-Lord’. In the second episode, we saw T’Challa wanted to explore the world outside Wakanda and hence goes beyond the borders of Wakanda. And then Yondu and Ravagers mistakenly abduct T’Challa instead of Peter Quill.
Years later, we saw T’Challa becoming an intergalactic outlaw named Star-lord. The Yondu, T’Challa, and the Ravagers save dying planets from collapsing. We saw Thanos as well.
Thanos now has given up on his plans to destroy half of the universe and joined the Ravagers on their mission of saving dying planets.
Thanos’s daughter Nebula and T’Challa plans a heist to steal Embers of Genesis, a cosmic nutrient that can transform a planet to sustain life.
T’Challa, Ravagers, and Nebula plan to steal the Embers of Genesis from Taneleer Tivan, the Collector.
However, Nebula here backstabs T’Challa and hands him over to the Collector. As Tivan was about to T’Challa, the Ravagers saved T’Challa, and using that time as an advantage; Nebula had stolen the Embers of Genesis.
It was all part of the plan that Nebula would double-cross T’Challa and then Ravagers will save him from The Collector, and using that time as an advantage; Nebula could steal the Embers of Genesis.
Later on, Nebula, T’Challa, Yondu, Thanos, and the Ravagers fights The Collector and his forces, and they managed to defeat the Collector and escaped successfully.
T’Challa, at the ending moments of the episodes, returns to Earth and meets his parents, tells them about where he was all this time and what has happened to him.
Then we see Ego, the biological father of Peter Quill returns to Earth in search of his son Peter Quill. The episode ends here. We couldn’t see what happened to Peter Quill and Ego from here on. Maybe it will be covered in some future seasons or episodes of the show.
