    So between Agnes's husband, Pietro, and Dottie, we are up to three candidates for Mephisto or whatever power is controlling things, assuming that Hayward is just doing normal dickery. Marvel really seems to like playing find the lady with their established plot points, or we're going around in circles when they have no intention of bringing in literal Satan to the MCU yet. (Maybe Nightmare?)

    I'm having a hard time pegging Pietro as the voice that Wanda wants to hear about how it's totes fine to live your dream life, or the voice that she needs to hear, that subverting the will of thousands of people to avoid processing your grief is bad and you should feel bad. The irony and sarcasm is throwing my read.

    But the introduction and commerical bits are top notch, and again could be read a lot of ways, is the cool shark eating "YoMagic" implying that that Wanda's magic is being consumed, and if the "seal" isn't broken, she could get herself killed?

    This is getting out of hand holy shit.

    I honestly don't know where this will lead, but I think the current episode makes it very clear that WandaVision is a set up for the Dr. Strange sequel. Also Pietro is really weird. In one of his lines he said "Your brother" instead of "me" and he seems more in control of himself than anyone else. Also we didn't get to see if he stopped like everyone else did when Wanda blasted him, so we don't know if he's simulated or not.

    I have no clue what's going on, but I wish these episodes were longer. Apparently total runtime is 6 hours (from reddit, no clue how safe that info is), so the last episodes have to get longer, which is great.

    Another exciting episode. Loved the Malcolm in the Middle theme at the top.

    With the conversation about Captain Rambeau's cells changing from crossing the barrier plus the Fox X-men version of Quicksilver being brought in, it seems like they may be shifting full on into bringing in mutants into the MCU which is pretty cool.

      Yeah I've seen it suggested that the hex is the catalyst for X-men mutants. Makes me wonder what happens to cause mutations on a global scale though. Can't imagine the entirety of the MCU mutant population is going to have descended from the inhabitants of and soldiers around this small NJ town.

        "We were going to call ourselves the Hex-Men, but the printer messed up our business cards, and X-Men actually tested a whole lot better, so that's the new name."

        It’s a little too neat if you ask me, and (He)X-Men is just too cute. We know multiverse is going to be introduced in Dr. Strange so I’m sure this isn’t how they’re going to do it.

        So there’s 4 people Wanda has no control over: Vision, Fake Pietro, and her twins. Vision appears to be a total construct of the Hex so why doesn’t she have control of him, but I wonder what’s going on with her brother and sons.

          Because he's effectively powered by it, but is still the same Vision he was the day he died. I'm not sure about the amnesia, but it's just plot-convenient "I forgot I died" stuff something, likely Wanda, is doing to keep the sitcom going, I'd guess.

      I was a little annoyed that they skipped the 90s and went entirely into the next century. But then again, almost every 90s sitcom has been completely forgotten about. The only one I can think of that I know people remember is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and that wasn’t exactly a good match for this show.

          (Although to be honest I just don't really care for those shows).

          Actually, the more that I think about it, there were lots of great sitcoms during that era. I forgot how much I loved Spin City.

          But the thing is that none of them are family-focused. Almost all of them are about adults living in big cities. Now that I'm remembering a lot more of them, I can still only think of two of them that focus on suburban families: Roseanne and Home Improvement.

    I was wondering what was going to happen later, and lost it when they went with "Malcolms in the Middle." I honestly wasn't aware of the Pietro recast, so laughed my ass off after stumbling into it in Wikipedia, and am honestly more intrigued about where this is going to go, exactly.
