    Pretty good episode.

    I'm not sure if Wanda is trying to fool Vision with the whole you think I'm doing all this act, because if that's the truth then her meeting with SWORD didn't make a whole lot of sense. Also I'm pretty sure the red barrier now means that anyone who tries to cross it dies (probably).

    Also I'm pretty sure they recast MCU Quicksilver with the X-Men Quicksilver, which is pretty fucking hilarious.

    I wonder where it'll go. A lot of people on the internet familiar with the comics say that this is the adoption of the House of M run of X-Men comics, but the differences between the two set-ups are staggering, so I have no clue where it'll go in the end. My best guess is that Vision will be fully resurrected by the end and the kids will disappear, which will trigger a full mental breakdown of Wanda, ending in a grand battle in the finale. I don't know how the contract situation looks with Olsen and Bettany, but at least Olsen is set to star in the Dr. Strange sequel, so maybe Vision is actually dead for good. I think it would be a good idea to keep the MCU more grounded and leave dead people dead, or people will be screaming for Tony Stark to return forever.

        I think you are right and also the twins are not under her control at all. Not with her “powers” but I think it’s kinda cool she is forced to be more of a “mother” to control the situating instead...

        Also why does only Agnes show up at the right times? She obviously knows more than she is revealing.

      Yeah, Darcy actually called this out in the episode too which was great. I think it really shows that Disney is going to be bridging the Marvel universe with the Fox X-Men one which I am pumped...

      With the news about the cast of Spiderman 3 including actors from past iterations, plus the fact that Doctor Strange 2 is subtitled Multiverse of Madness, there is a lot of stuff potentially being set up here with Wandavision.

        I like that the MCU has been let off the hook to go wild with ideas. There was an era after the Avengers where the movies all were extremely similar to each other with some mediocre to bad hits...

        I like that the MCU has been let off the hook to go wild with ideas. There was an era after the Avengers where the movies all were extremely similar to each other with some mediocre to bad hits (Thor 1 & 2 especially), I think with Guardians of the Galaxy a director was actually allowed to make a movie a little more like his vision than the controlled cinematography a lot of the MCU has.

    Goddamn, that was a good episode. I really liked the Full House / 80s sitcom vibe this episode. All of the "characters" in WestView, particularly the neighbor lady are showing a lot more awareness...

    I wonder if there is something going on with Captain Rambeau since she seems to be unusually defensive about Scarlet Witch. The issue with her labs and reports coming back strange makes me suspect that maybe Wanda is still in control of her somehow.

    I loved that Wanda came out of the bubble and still had her Sokovian accent and just confronted the SWORD folks directly.

    and GODDDAMN HOLY SHIT the Quicksilver reveal with EVAN PETERS was nuts. It seems that they are really digging into the whole multiverse concept already and bringing in the Fox X-men folks is just so cool. I can't wait to see where this goes from here if it ends with a reverse House of M from the comics where Wanda just brings all mutants into reality or something.

      I honestly didn't even consider this. That'd be a really cool way to bring the universes together, by admitting that they are literally alternate universes and just merging them.

        Yeah this show and at least two of the next MCU movies clearly are moving us into the Marvel multiverse. I wonder how the Eternals will fit into this.

    I gotta give Paul Bettany best acting award in this series. His switch between fury and fear and love is pretty nuts.
