It's always been Agatha
In a deeply unsurprising (but beautifully executed) twist, it s 'turns out that the ridiculously suspicious Agnes ( Kathryn Hahn ) was a villain all the time. Wanda enters her creepy basement in search of her missing twins, and Agnes is revealed to be the witch Agatha Harkness. It turns out that she was responsible for everything that gone bad or weird in Westview, including the arrival of Pietro Maximoff from the Fox X-Men Universe ( Evan Peters ).
"And me killed Sparky too, "she said with a sneer.
This is the step too far Agatha. Killer theme song though.

A bigger ba ?
There are somes clues that there is another force at work - including the super prominent cicada on the curtain in Agatha's living room. It 's not a million miles from a fly, a form taken by the demon Mephisto in his prime chronological appearance of comics . I'm really happy with the Spider-Man MCU is not married .
"Ralph says I layer things up, " Agatha said in one of her interviews, referring to her invisible husband (and suggesting that he is worse than she is). ballast).
Also, where are Tommy and Billy? This whole facade is probably a scheme to get hold of the overpowered children ofe Wanda and Vision, so… success?

The post-credits scene
Monica arrives at Agatha ' s and prepares to enter the basement , but is surprised by a creepy Pietro (who is probably under Agatha 's control).
"Snooper will snoop, " he says.
It is likely that Agatha and Pietro are surprised, because they do not know that Monica agold superpowers. It seems possible that Agatha removed him from the X-Men universe to manipulate Wanda.

The Mighty Monica
After Monica crosses the Hex barrier and returns to Westview, her DNA has been rewritten and she has acquired some abilities. She can perceive the electromagnetic spectrum, comme electricity in the pylons, and apparently absorbs kinetic energy when Wanda slams her onto the sidewalk.

In the comics, she was given the power to transform into any form of energy in the electromagnetic spectrum after being bombarded by extra-dimensional energies. And the SWORD outfit she wore for her dsecond trip to Westview looks like his modern comic book costume.
Voices in the barrier
As she crosses the barrier, Monica hears a bunch of familiar voices - mostly a throwback to data Captain Marvel . Speakers include her late mother Maria, Monica's younger self, Nick Fu ry (!) And Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel).
Maria: "No, no, I can't. I can't leave Monica.
Young Monica: " Mom, it's okay. I can stay with Grandma and Pop-Pop.
Maria: "There's no way I'm going, baby. It's too dangerous.
Young Monica: " Mom, maybe I could fly and meet you halfway. "
Fury: " Only if you learn to shine like your Aunt Carol. "
Maria: " And you were the onemore powerful than I know.
Dr. Harley : " Your mom, she's dead honey.
Jimmy: "She was truly an inspiration. Sorry.
Carol: "Your mother is lucky. When they handed out children, they gave her the hardest part.
Join the circus
Darcy finds herself in the role of Westview of an escape artist in the circus, but Vision wakes her up and she tells him her whole story. Now he is aware of the complete trauma Wanda experienced in Avengers: Infinity War , having killed him to prevent Thanos from getting the Spirit Stone, only to see him die again after Thanos reverses the time. The movie is so fast-paced that I hadn't thought how horrible it would be.
It's been five years in the universe since these events, but Wanda was among those Blipped Away and n 'returned that a few weeks ago . So that the trauma was damn fresh.
THE SWORD was sharpening
We only have a moment with SWORD director Tyler Hayward ( Josh Stamberg ), but he's determined to strike against Wanda today. mentions that the sitcom WandaVision is no longer streaming - probably because Wanda is taking her a day or Agatha has started blocking her as she prepares to move her.
Jimmy doesn't get much to do much either, but he confirms in Darcy's email that Hayward wanted to bring Vision back online. It ultimately took the power of Wanda to achieve this.
"Hayward wants his sentient weapon back, " Monica said.

The Aerospace Engineer
Fan theories suggested that the Aerospace Engineer friend of Monica would be Reed Richards or energy -absorbent hero Blue Marvel - no, man. Major Goodner and his team are apparently loyal to Monica, but don't mention working for anyone else.
This again hints at a faction of SWORD that will stay with Monica, who will likely end up replacing Hayward as director once the plot thread ends.

L ' announcement
This the episode is for Nexus antidepressant - in Avengers: Age of Ultron , Tony Stark hacks into the NEXUS Internet Hub to discover that JARVIS (the AI that would become Vision) has dispersed his artificial consciousness across the web to stop Ultron.
In the comics, the Nexus is a multidimensional gateway that provides a path to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness .
"A unique antidepressant that works to anchor you back to your reality . Or whatever reality you want, "the ad says. " Side effects include feeling your feelings, facing your truth, grasping your destiny, and possibly even more depression.
Right before Monica confronted Wanda,we see her taking pills in a bottle with a similar- looking label.
Also in the comics, Wanda is a Nexus Being - something whose power can affect odds and change the flow of time. These people are monitored by the Time Variance Authority, a group that will appear in the next Loki show .
WTF observations and questions
- The introductory riffs on The desktop and Modern Family .
- "I know what you are doing Wanda " flashes on the screen during the intro, in the style of a ransom note. It could be a salvation that Tommy and Billy were kidnapped.
- Kathryn Hahn is one of the singers on "It Was ______ All Along " which sounds a lot like The Munsters theme (and a bit like The Addams family too).
- "I actually bit a kid once. " Looks like Agatha needs her own Disney Plus series.
- Items evolve between periods, suggesting that Wanda is losing control. Or does Agatha take control away from him?
- "Don't believe anything that man said. It 's notyour uncle. "After Wanda seemed to agree Pietro, she suddenly warns Tommy and Billy against him. Does his occasional cruelty about Does Vision's death shake her from her delusion?
- The voices Billy hears are the true personalities of Westview 's residents. Agnes / Agatha is "calm" because her personality doesn 'is not deleted.
- An empathetic Monica seems to have access to Wanda before Agatha interrupts her, which hopefully is set for Wanda to come back from the edge.
- "Do you think this may be what you deserve? "Agatha said as an interviewer, suggesting that she punish Wanda.
- You can hear purring as Wanda passes Senor Scratchy the Rabbit in Agatha's living room. The bunny could really be Agatha's familiar cat, Ebony.
- Tommy and Billy's controllers briefly transform into Nintendo GameCube stamps - certainly the best. They also use the target Wii Remotes , but I don't think this console needs my public support so much.
- Why didn't Darcy and Vision come out and walk?
Join us for more Easter eggs and sightings next Friday, when Episode 8 of WandaVision is coming to Disney Plus.
