It’s been Agatha all alongsideIn a deeply unsurprising (however fantastically executed) twist, it seems the ludicrously suspicious Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) was a baddy the entire time. Wanda enters her creepy basement in search of her lacking twins, and Agnes reveals herself to be the witch Agatha Harkness. Turns out she was chargeable for all the pieces that is gone incorrect or bizarre in Westview, together with the arrival of Pietro Maximoff from the Fox X-Men universe (Evan Peters).”And I killed Sparky too,” she says, cackling. That’s the step too far Agatha. Killer theme tune although.The ebook in Agatha’s basement may very well be the Darkhold, beforehand seen in Agents of SHIELD.

An even bigger dangerous?There are just a few hints that there is one other power at work — together with tremendous outstanding cicada on the curtain in Agatha’s front room. It’s not one million miles from a fly, a type taken by the demon Mephisto in his first chronological comics look. I’m certain glad MCU Spider-Man is not married.”Ralph says I supercoat issues,” Agatha says throughout one in all her interviews, referring to her unseen husband (and suggesting he is worse than she is).Also, the place the heck are Tommy and Billy? This entire facade might be a scheme to pay money for Wanda and Vision’s superpowered kids, so… success?Snoopers and creepers.

The postcredits sceneMonica arrives at Agatha’s home and will get able to enter the basement, however is stunned by a creepy Pietro (who’s presumably beneath Agatha’s management).”Snooper’s gonna snoop,” he says.It’s probably Agatha and Pietro are in for a shock, since they do not know about Monica gaining superpowers. It appears doable that Agatha pulled him from the X-Men universe to govern Wanda.Those eyes recommend Monica is not to be messed with.

The mighty MonicaAfter Monica pushed via the Hex barrier and acquired again into Westview, her DNA has been rewritten and he or she’s gained just a few skills. She can understand the electromagnetic spectrum, like the electrical energy in pylons, and seemingly absorbs the kinetic vitality when Wanda slams her onto the pavement.Monica’s costume, as seen in fashionable comics.

Joining the circusDarcy finds herself in the Westview position of an escape artist in the circus, however Vision wakes her up and he or she fills him in on his full historical past. Now he is conscious of the full trauma Wanda skilled in Avengers: Infinity War, having killed him to cease Thanos from getting the Mind Stone, solely to observe him die once more after Thanos reversed time. The film is so fast-paced that I hadn’t thought of how horrible that’d be. 
It’s been 5 in-universe years since these occasions, however Wanda was amongst these Blipped away and solely returned just a few weeks in the past. So that trauma is fairly darn contemporary.The SWORD sharpensWe solely get a second with jerk-face appearing SWORD director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg), however he is decided to launch a strike in opposition to Wanda right now. His goon mentions that the WandaVision sitcom is now not broadcasting — most likely as a result of Wanda is taking her me day or Agatha began blocking it as she ready to make her transfer.Jimmy additionally does not get a lot to do a lot, however he confirms from Darcy’s e-mail that Hayward wished to carry Vision again on-line. It finally took Wanda’s energy to get it finished. “Hayward desires his sentient weapon again,” Monica says.

The aerospace engineerFan theories instructed that Monica’s aerospace engineer buddy can be Reed Richards or energy-absorbing hero Blue Marvel — nah, man. Major Goodner and her staff are apparently loyal to Monica, however do not point out working for anybody else. It nonetheless hints at a faction of SWORD that’ll stick to Monica, who’ll probably find yourself changing Hayward as director after that plot thread involves a head.”Nexus, as a result of the world does not revolve round you. Or does it?”

The advertThis episode’s industrial is for the antidepressant Nexus — in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Tony Stark hacks into the NEXUS Internet Hub to find that JARVIS (the AI that’d grow to be Vision) scattered his synthetic consciousness throughout the net to cease Ultron.In the comics, the Nexus is a cross-dimensional gateway that gives a pathway to varied realities — linking it to an antidepressant suits with Wanda’s try and create her personal actuality to flee her trauma. This might tie in with upcoming film Doctor Strange in the (*7*) of Madness.”A novel antidepressant that works to anchor you again to your actuality. Or the actuality of your alternative,” the advert says. “Side results embrace feeling your emotions, confronting your reality, seizing your future and presumably, extra despair.”Just earlier than Monica confronts Wanda, we see her taking some tablets from a bottle with a similar-looking label. Also in the comics, Wanda is a Nexus Being — one thing whose energy can have an effect on likelihood and alter the circulate of time. Such individuals are monitored by the Time Variance Authority, a bunch that’ll show up in the upcoming Loki show.

Observations and WTF questionsThe intro riffs on The Office and Modern Family.”I do know what u are doing Wanda” flashes on the display screen throughout the intro, in the type of a ransom word. It may very well be a touch that Tommy and Billy have been kidnapped. Kathryn Hahn is credited as one in all the singers in “It Was ______ All Along,” which sounds rather a lot like The Munsters theme tune (and somewhat like The Addams Family too).”I really did chunk a child as soon as.” Sounds like Agatha wants her personal Disney Plus collection.Objects are shifting between time durations, which means that Wanda is dropping management. Or is Agatha wresting management from her?”Don’t consider something that man mentioned. He shouldn’t be your uncle.” After Wanda appeared to just accept Pietro, she all of a sudden warns Tommy and Billy about him. Did his informal cruelty about Vision’s loss of life shake her out of her delusion?The voices Billy is listening to are the true personalities of Westview’s residents. Agnes/Agatha is “quiet” as a result of her character is not being suppressed.An empathetic Monica looks like she’s getting via to Wanda earlier than Agatha interrupts, which is hopefully setup for Wanda getting back from the brink. “Do you assume that is perhaps what you deserve?” Agatha says as the interviewer, suggesting she’s punishing Wanda.You can hear purring when Wanda walks by Senor Scratchy the rabbit in Agatha’s front room. The rabbit would possibly actually be Agatha’s cat acquainted, Ebony. Tommy and Billy’s controllers briefly morph into Nintendo GameCube pads — positively the greatest ones. They additionally use Wii Remotes, however I do not assume that console wants my public help practically as a lot.Why did not Darcy and Vision get out and stroll?Join us for extra Easter eggs and observations subsequent Friday, when episode 8 of WandaVision hits Disney Plus.CNET’s Caitlin Petrakovitz contributed to this recap.
