Each week WandaVision leaves us with more questions instead of answers, and this week was no different. Are we upset about it? Absolutely not. Vision’s questions and Wanda’s surprise guest! We didn’t see this coming. The title for the new episode was titled ‘We Interrupt This Program,’ and there were a lot of interruptions.
As we make our way to the ’80s, we possibly gain insight into what’s going on in Westview. We learn what happened to Vision’s body following his death. Not only this, but there is a major, unexpected appearance of someone from Wanda’s past. There are so many plot points that we need to discuss, so let’s get into it!
*Warning: This article contains spoilers.*
Tommy, Billy & Sparky
First off, the WandaVision opening credits for this episode was so cute! We loved seeing baby pictures of the whole Vision family! Who knew we needed pictures of baby Vision?
We first see the twins in this episode as babies, crying and stressing out Wanda and Vision. As a way to control the problem herself, Wanda tries to use magic to help the twins to sleep to no avail. Just in true fashion, Agnes pops in to help, which causes a weird moment between her, Wanda, and Vision. It appears that Agnes knows that something isn’t right regarding Wanda. The twins also grow to become five years old, which seems like Agnes doesn’t even notice or acknowledge the change at all.
The boys find a dog, and Wanda and Vision agree that the boys aren’t ready for that responsibility just yet. The boys again change to be older, which happens to be in front of Agnes. Further on in the episode, Agnes finds Sparky dead in her bushes, which causes the twins pain, and they try to escape by aging again- leading to Wanda giving the boys a lesson about death and grief.
While Vision is at work, the office receives an email from S.W.O.R.D., which is from Monica, Darcy, and Woo, who are trying to get in contact with the residents of Westview. Vision’s discovery that something is not right in the town seems to be correct, after a conversation with Norm, who says that whatever is happening hurts.
During a briefing about Wanda and Westview, Hayward shows a video of Wanda breaking into a S.W.O.R.D. facility to steal Vision’s body. We learn from Woo that Vision’s wish was not to be used for anyone’s weapon. Looking at the video, we see that Vision’s body is in pieces and is seemingly being worked on.
Later in the episode, Monica sends in a drone to contact Wanda, which backfires, and Wanda takes it. There is a security breach on the perimeter of the hex, which is Wanda bringing it back and sending a warning to leave her and everyone alone in Westview. Monica tries to reason with Wanda, which doesn’t work, as Wanda then turns the guns pointed at her to Hayward.
The commercial for this episode is provided by Lagos paper towels. The tagline for this: “For when you make a mess, you didn’t mean to.” The reference to this? The incident in Captain America: Civil War, where Wanda accidentally killed humanitarian workers from Wakanda.
Vision Confronts Wanda
While confronting Wanda, Vision talks about the residents of Westview and even himself. Vision says that he doesn’t remember anything before Westview and that he had a talk with Norm about how he was feeling. Wanda tries to end the conversation by rolling the credits to the show, which doesn’t work out the way she wants. Wanda confesses that she isn’t in control of everything.
The ending of the episode ends with the arrival of Wanda’s twin brother, Pietro. We have one question! Pietro, what are you doing in WandaVision? The last time we saw the twin was in Avengers: Age of Ultron (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson). The version of Pietro that shows up is the version of Quicksilver in the X-Men movies. We know that the X-Men will somehow appear in this phase for Marvel, so could this be the introduction to that?
Things To Keep An Eye Out On In WandaVision Episodes
- The twins ask Wanda to bring Sparky back from the dead. Wanda says she doesn’t have the power to bring back the dead. Is this why she told Vision to help Mr. Hart in the first episode?
- Vision asking Wanda about the “Maximoff Anomaly.” Vision asks Wanda about this, and she replies that she doesn’t know what is going on and that she isn’t fully in control.
- The tiger references. In the opening credits, Vision is seen holding the twins, as babies, in a chair that has tigers on the handles. Agnes also refers to herself as a tiger, and a toy tiger is sitting on the kitchen table. This could be nothing, but we ARE dealing with Marvel.
- Monica’s flashbacks. When thinking about being inside the hex, Monica has flashbacks that deal with her and Wanda. One of them seems to be Wanda crying, which we haven’t seen happen so far.
- Hayward and Wanda’s interaction. Is there a possibility that Hayward and Wanda met before? When Wanda comes out of the hex bringing the drone, Monica asked what it is that Wanda wanted. Wanda says that she has everything she wants. Hayward says that she has a town held hostage, but he has guns. We can see that Wanda has some form of trust in Monica. Wanda also says that what she has will never be taken away again, towards Hayward. There seems to be some realization of what she is talking about.
That’s all we have for this week’s episode recap. We obviously can’t wait until the next episode is released and continue to see what’s new in Westview. To know what’s happening with Pietro. Did Wanda bring him back, or was he sent there as a distraction? And what’s up with Hayward, because we obviously don’t trust him.
