Babies, magic, and Ultron? Marvel has proved why they are amazing once again! Following the release of the first two episodes, WandaVision has left us even more confused, but what’s new? The new episodes left us with a lot, including the return of a few familiar faces and a new military base?
In episodes three and four, we move to the ’70s, and even the present, making some discoveries. As we’ve done before, we need to discuss it because we can’t keep it in and have so many theories and questions!
*Warning: This article contains spoilers.*
As we enter the Brady Bunch inspired episode, we see a very pregnant Wanda! Throughout the episode, Wanda rapidly progresses into her pregnancy, which causes her powers to go on the fritz, following contractions. Geraldine makes a surprise appearance at the Vision residence, just in time to help Wanda’s delivery of twin boys. Following the delivery, the two have an interesting conversation that pushes the show in another direction. The topic of discussion? Wanda’s brother Pietro and Ultron. Two names we haven’t heard about in a very long time. Meanwhile, Vision is thanking the doctor and sending him on his way, then has a conversation with Agnes and Herb. The two are talking about Geraldine, and Vision starts to realize everything might not be as it seems. Vision returns inside and asks Wanda about Geraldine leaving.
For those who have been saying WandaVision is progressing too slow, this is where the show begins to develop in true Marvel fashion! The opening is pure chaos as we see Geraldine, or should I say, Monica Rambeau, return after disappearing from “the blip.” Amid chaos, we see Monica in search of her mother, Maria, who learns that she has passed years before everyone’s return. We learn that Maria started an agency, S.W.O.R.D., where Monica works. She is sent to Westview to assist the FBI with a missing person case.
Arriving in Westview, Monica meets FBI agent Jimmy Woo (Ant-Man and the Wasp), investigating the missing person case, and Eastview police officers. According to the officers, the town of Westview doesn’t exist. Monica sends a drone into Westview to further investigate, which then disappears, leaving Woo and Rambeau confused. Monica goes to the border and is sucked into the town. Once Rambeau disappears, a base is set up outside of the town line. We see another familiar face, Dr. Darcy Lewis (Thor). Darcy discovers that a radiation form is mixing with radio frequency, and they can see what appears to be Wanda and Vision in a show. Throughout the remainder of the episode, the FBI, S.W.O.R.D., and Lewis try to figure out what is going on.
Connections Made From Episodes One & Two
- Ads — We still got an ad in the middle of episode three, which is for Hydra Soak Luxury Bath Powder. There is no further explanation regarding the ads, so we’ll just have to continue to keep an eye out for those.
- S.W.O.R.D. — As we previously pointed out, we can see Wanda and Vision being watched and saw the logo in the back, and in other circumstances. It turns out, S.W.O.R.D. isn’t bad and is trying to figure everything out like we are.
- Geraldine — It turns out we get somewhat of a backstory on Geraldine, as she turns out to be Monica Rambeau, who actually works for S.W.O.R.D.
- Beekeeper — We learn that the ‘beekeeper’ coming out the storm drain is actually FBI agent Franklin.
- Color — The bursts of color that we would see are red and could be connected to Wanda. We suspect that every time she sees color, it is bringing her to the real world.
- The Radio — When Dottie and Wanda were cleaning up after the committee meeting, we hear someone trying to get in contact with Wanda- turns out it was Agent Woo.
Things To Keep An Eye On In Future Episodes Of WandaVision & Important Points
There are a few things that we still need to keep an eye on in the remainder of the season. Some of them are the ads still, bursts of color and their meaning, the meaning of the time periods, and the hexagon shape, which Woo has the same questions as us!
- Wanda saying “I have everything under control.” — It seems like she does, but it also seems like she doesn’t. Guess we’ll just have to continue to watch for this answer.
- Vision’s look at the end of episode four, when sitting on the couch — After his conversation with Agnes and Herb, Vision is realizing some things aren’t what they seem to be and has his suspensions.
- This could be nothing, but Geraldine breaks the fourth wall — When Wanda uses magic to get rid of Geraldine, she breaks a fourth wall (room, house, fence, Westview’s border), breaking the reality of both the present and in Westview.
- Monica entering into Westview — When Woo and Monica meet, he says that nothing can enter into the town. Monica is supposed to have powers in the comics. Was she able to enter because of her powers, and if so, are they somehow connected to Wanda?
- Video format changes — If you didn’t notice, the video format changed in Wanda and Geraldine’s conversation. As there is a transition from everyone on the base watching the two and then leaving because of alarms going off outside, there is a format change when Wanda uses her powers. There is a 4:3 video format, which was used in older television shows and then to widescreen, which is the format for all MCU movies.
Well, that’s it for the recap of episodes three and four! Did you notice any of the points like we did, or did we miss anything? Do you want to tell us any of your WandaVision theories? We would love to hear them! You can let us know in the comments below or head over to Twitter and tweet us your thoughts @TheHoneyPOP! You can also reach out to us on Instagram and Facebook!
