Before we go into the latest episode of WandaVision, I must let you know that there are spoilers ahead!!! This particular episode starts off with a flashback in Salem, Massachusetts during the late 1600's. A slightly young Agatha Harkness is on trail, facing judgement and execution by the witches of her coven, including her own mother. She's found guilty of using dark magic, and while she begs for help, Agatha gives a less than convincing defense. The coven says a spell and blasts her with magic. It hurts Agatha, but she somehow absorbs their blasts, draining them of their energy. Her mother joins the fight, but eventually gets drained too! Some cold-blooded actions, right there! Cut to modern day, and Wanda is in Agatha's basement demanding to know where her children are. She attempts to mind-blast her, but due to some runes being placed, Wanda's powers aren't working! Agatha blasts Wanda, restraining her. She goes through the usual "evil villain monologue", saying that she's behind resurrecting Pietro, faking being controlled. As Agatha is curious as to how Wanda's powers were born, she forced her to relive her most stressful memories.
The first memory is of a young Wanda and Pietro with their parents in Sokovia. Wanda's dad asks what she wants to watch, and Wanda chooses The Dick Van Dyke Show. This also explains why each episode of WandaVision has a distinct feel of a particular sitcom. Because of her dad's dvd collection, to distract from the civil war. As the family watches, a mortar round blasts their home, killing their parents instantly. As young Wanda and Pietro hide underneath their bed, Wanda reaches for the missile in their living room, (nice Age of Ultron reference there!) Just then, Agatha magically yanks Wanda from underneath the bed, explaining that she used a "probability hex" on the missile from Stark Industries, whereas Wanda always thought it was a dud. While this interests Agatha, she needs more as she creates another door to a new memory.
This memory involves Wanda volunteering for HYDRA. Love that Agatha calls out Wanda wanting to help a terrorist organization. As we watch the memory play out, Wanda is asked by scientists to walk up to Loki's scepter! (A callback to Captain America: The Winter Soldier). As she approaches the scepter, the Mind Stone breaks out, and we see Wanda having a vision of what looks like a future version of herself. Wanda passes out, and while the scientists saw what Wanda saw, their video recording didn't show any of it! Agatha is impressed with the power increase that Wanda received, due to the Infinity Stone. Needing more for her "theory" Agatha opens a new memory.
We see a depressed Wanda in her room at the Avengers compound. This occurs after Age of Ultron and before Civil War. While Wanda is watching TV, Vision phases into her room. He tries to console her, well, as best he can for an android new to emotions. Wanda says that she is tired, and she feels alone. Vision gives some profound advice, saying "What is grief, if not love persevering?" As she's comforted, Vision laughs at Malcolm and The Middle, Wanda enjoys his company and laughs with him. While Agatha wipes a tear away from her, she wants Wanda to tell her what pushed her over the edge. Wanda lost her parents, her brother, and now Vision. She eggs Wanda on, saying that she wanted Vision back. Wanda silently agrees, and yet another door arrives.
This time, Wanda eagerly walks through, and we see her in S.W.O.R.D. Headquarters. This happens sometime after the events of Avengers Endgame, according to news reports of people coming back from The Snap. She's allowed access to the inner levels and is greeted by Director Hayward. Wanda asks for Vision's remains, so she can properly bury him. Hayward explains that he is a weapon, not a person, and that he's more than hesitant to release the remains to Wanda. As he shows Wanda Vision's remains, Wanda blasts the windows out of his office, and glides down to Vision's dismembered body. She tries to use her powers to read his mind, but nothing happens. Defeated, Wanda walks out to her car, and we see an envelope in her car. Wanda drives to New Jersey, and we see all the people that were in different "episodes" of the "sitcom". Wanda eventually arrives at an unfinished home, and she opens the letter. It's the blueprint to a house that Vision intended for them both to grow old together. This sends her over the edge, as Wanda explodes with Hex Power, not only creating the house, but putting the entire town in a Hex Field! And, we also see Wanda recreate Vision from scratch! No Infinity Stone needed! (Most powerful Avenger?!) As Vision is reconstructed, he acknowledges Wanda and asks her to stay home. The setting is reminiscent of the first episode.
Agatha gives the evil "slow-clap", snapping Wanda out of her memory. She says that she now knows what Wanda really is. Just then, we hear cries of Tommy and Billy outside the "house". Wanda runs outside, and we see Agatha chiming the twins with magic. In her full costume, Agatha reveals that she knows where Wanda's powers come from. That not only is it called "chaos magic", but that she thought Wanda was a myth. She acknowledges that Wanda is the Scarlet Witch!!
Cut to a mid-credit scene, where we see Director Hayward being alerted that due to capturing some of the Hex Magic, they have finally succeeded. S.W.O.R.D has built their own version of Vision, in all white. Their "Vision" awakens in a chamber, moving his hands.
Well, first things first. Hayward is a goddamn liar! He claimed that Wanda stole Vision's body, but in reality, they had him the whole time! And, can we agree that the Avengers are not a damn family?! I don't care what Natasha says, they are trash for letting Wanda go through her depression alone! Where was Hawkeye, or Cap? Second, now that Vision knows what really happened, will he fight the fake Vision? And what's going on with Monica and "Pietro"? And how about that long deserved code name for Wanda! Finally, this show gives us what die-hard Marvel fans wanted from Wanda. Her costume, her powers being called "hex magic", and her code name!! Things are definitely going to heat up in the next episode! Till next time, my fellow Blerds!
