WandaVision Episode 3 may have been the most baffling yet and the ending left fans in complete shock.

WandaVision returned to Disney Plus for the third episode this week and it’s safe to say that it showed no signs of slowing down on the crazy. The Marvel Cinematic Universe series reinvented itself as a ’70s sitcom this time around as Wanda prepared to give birth to her baby.

However, the accelerated pregnancy (and Vision’s unexpected flying) wasn’t the strangest thing to happen in Episode 3. Far from it, in fact as an intervention from Geraldine made things that much more head-scratching.

What happened in WandaVision Episode 3?

Wanda’s pregnancy could no longer be hidden from Geraldine – who paid a visit to the Vision house – and the nice neighbor helped the Scarlet Witch give birth to not one but two babies. However, as Wanda thanked Geraldine for her kindness, she remarked how she too had a twin – making reference to Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver (who was portrayed by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron). This got a reaction from Geraldine – who reminded Wanda that Pietro was killed by Ultron.

In response to the pang of real-world pain that she felt upon being reminded of Pietro’s death, Wanda sent Geraldine flying out of WestView and into, uh, an alternate reality? An alternate reality that was swarming with government vehicles and a helicopter. So what does it all mean?

What does the ending of WandaVision Episode 3 mean?

Geraldine’s departure from WestView into this apparent alternate reality can mean a number of things but the most likely explanation is that it isn’t an alternate reality she was sent into, but the real one. Notice how the screen ratio changed, as the presentation turned modern, adopting a widescreen ratio instead, more like the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies? That’s because Geraldine was sent flying into the real world.

That suggests that WestView is indeed a creation by Wanda and that she’s desperate to hold onto the sitcom town with Vision in it because she can’t accept that her beloved Avenger was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. Geraldine threatened to take her happiness away from her in the same way that the beekeeper, the radio and Vision’s realizations about WestView did, so she simply deleted her from the program.

As for who the government officials running towards Geraldine in the real world are. Well, that could be none other than S.W.O.R.D. – the same ones that sent the beekeeper in and tried to contact her via the radio.

Who is Geraldine in WandaVision?

Geraldine created a lot of confusion and intrigue in this week’s episode as she seemed to have no idea what she was doing there. That’s a rather self-aware presentation for someone living in WestView, so it was clear that there was more to her than meets the eye. And this became incredibly clear when Agnes and Herb thought it strange that she didn’t actually live in the town.

Of course, Marvel fans know there’s more to Gerladine as she is actually the adult version of Monica Rambeau. Now portrayed by Teyonah Parris, we last saw the character in Captain Marvel when she was a little girl (portrayed by Akira Akbar) and we know that Parris will be reprising the role in Captain Marvel 2.

The SWORD necklace she was wearing certainly suggests that she was planted there by the organization – who could have been the ones running towards her when she was expelled from WestView.
