What If Episode 4 Recap: What happened when Dr. Strange lost his heart instead of hand?

The first two episodes of the series showcased how small changes can bring about a huge impact in reality. However, the previous two episodes took a dark turn towards the characters’ events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. What If Episode 4 was titled “What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart Instead of His Hands?”

The events of the episode followed the events that happened in 2016 in the first movie of Dr. Strange. However, over here, instead of losing his hands, Stephen has lost the person whom he loves the most in the world in the car accident.

He was driving to an event to receive an award with his lover- Christine Palmer, beside him. Christine Palmer had agreed to be his date as long as she was going to get dessert out of her date. Their car gets hit by another vehicle on the road, and in this accident, Christine dies.

Stephen starts looking for the mystic arts and gets to know about the Eye of Agamotto because he was looking for answers. The events happen one after the other, as was showcased in the movie. The Ancient One meets the end of her life, and Dr. Strange finally has to fight Dormammu.

Strange was not able to accept the death of his lover, so he decides to go back in time and try to save her from the accident. He gives in the best of his efforts, but he notices that he is not able to save her anytime.

The Ancient One visits the accident spot and tells Dr. Strange that he should try to forget about it and try to move on. Dr. Strange cannot stand no as an answer in this case, and they start fighting. He is then transported to a jungle. He tries looking for the lost library of Cagliostro.

This library had the hidden secret that could give him the answer to how he could change an Absolute Point in time. If Stephen could get hold of this knowledge, then he could make proper use of it to reverse Christine Palmer’s death.

Stephen finally finds the library, and once he goes there, he finds O’Bengh. He has been the librarian over there guarding the books and secrets of the Cagliostro. O’Bengh directs him towards the books he wants, but then there was a short encounter with a cosmic being that left him injured. Stephen could not figure out what to do in such a situation, so he stole the power which could help him change time.

After Stephen had stolen all the energy, he again found his way back to O’Bengh. He found that O’Bengh was almost reaching the end of his life and had kept himself frozen for a long time. O’Bengh rejects Stephen’s offer of providing eternal life. The Sorcerer Supreme, however, informs him that there is another version of him in the universe.

We get to know that when the Ancient One had fought with Stephen, she had split reality into two parts, and this allowed two versions of Stephen to exist in the universe. One of the versions never looked at the past, and the other was always getting into the past.

The Ancient One tells Strange that he is the only person who can put an end to his other half. Strange goes on to cast his protection spell, but right towards the end of casting the spell, the other Dr. Strange Supreme gets hold of the counterpart.

He tries to bargain with his other half, the better one, to stay united to bring back Christine Palmer. But Dr. Strange sees through Strange Supreme. Both of them engage in a fight, and we find that Dr. Strange Supreme sucks in Dr. Strange.

Strange Supreme makes use of his newly acquired power to bring Christine back. He soon realizes that doing this would destroy reality, so he regrets doing it. He convinces The Watcher to stop this from happening as he does not want the world to suffer because of his mistakes.
