WandaVision’s latest episode had its most shocking conclusion yet. But what does it really mean?
WandaVision has been a revelation for Marvel Cinematic Universe fans. The Disney Plus show has kicked off the MCU’s fourth phase, reintroducing audiences to some of the characters we just didn’t see enough of in the films.
Wanda Maximoff found herself attempting to move on from the horrors of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The result of that was Westview – a small fictional town that belonged in a sitcom more than any of the MCU properties we’ve seen so far. And, along with Westview, came Vision – who was miraculously revived after being killed by Thanos.
After expanding the Hex in last week’s installment, Episode 7 saw Wanda contemplate her actions. However, she soon came face-to-face with the show’s real villain.
What happened in WandaVision Episode 7?
“Breaking the Fourth Wall” saw Wanda address her actions as of late. In doing so, he acknowledged that she didn’t seem to have control over everything and couldn’t quite figure out why.
Meanwhile, Monica attempted to break through the Hex’s new boundaries. Her first attempt with a huge space rover failed. However, upon realizing that her own DNA had been rewritten, she forced her way through – becoming Spectrum in the process. She managed to get to Wanda and proved herself capable of standing against her – if it came to that – but when she finally got through to her, Agnes took Wanda away and told Monica to “run along now, dear”.
While at Agnes’ house, Wanda realized that her children, Billy and Tommy, weren’t around. Upon entering the basement, Agnes would then reveal herself to be Agatha Harkness.
What does the ending of WandaVision Episode 7 mean?
Agnes’ true identity has been revealed. Yes, the nosy neighbor of Westview was really Agatha Harkness is disguise and she has been behind everything going wrong in Westview.
Like Wanda, this witch has a lot of power and she’s capable of bending things to her will – something that was clear when she manipulated Vision by telling him a version of the truth right when he was growing suspicious.
We don’t yet know what she’s done to Wanda and Vision’s children, but we do know that she’s a villain. If anyone can find them, it’s the Scarlet Witch. The question is: Is Mephisto lurking in the background?
As for Monica, she has officially become the hero known as Spectrum. And she has crossed paths with Pietro in a post-credit scene. The two will undoubtedly face off, but it seems as if Agnes has put Pietro up to sorting out Monica before she upends her plans.
Can the Scarlet Witch and Spectrum stop the madness before it’s too late?
WandaVision adds a new episode on Disney+ every Friday from 12:00 a.m. PT and 3:00 a.m. ET.
