WandaVision’s fifth episode just released and it is a pretty important episode. Spoiler Alert!!
The episode is big not only for the show itself but also for Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here’s a recap of what actually happened in this episode. Avert your eyes if you haven’t seen the episode yet.
WandaVision has not failed to create some weird and unanswered questions and it has been a pretty solid show. This episode featured an epic entry as well along with its structure and humor and performances. Fans thought the fourth episode was the best one so far, however, the fifth is the best episode now as it blows everything else.
Fans saw that Vision was getting quite suspicious about the town of Westview and the things that are happening. Now, this episode has clearly made him sure that it is Wanda who is doing all of this. At the beginning of this episode, Wanda and Vision are unable to make their twins stop crying.
Wanda keeps trying and even goes on to do a bit of magic to make them stop crying, however, her magic does not work. This can be a signal that Wanda’s powers do not work on her kids. Just when Wanda thinks about getting some help, Agnes arrives at the moment.
The episode has the kids growing up on the same day itself right before Agnes. There is one scene where Agnes asks Wanda if she should do it all over again which throws Vision off. The kids find an abandoned dog as they converse if their parents would allow them to have one. Meanwhile outside Westview, S.W.O.R.D.’s Monica Rambeau is awake and sort of fine.
Is S.W.O.R.D. Trying to Kill Wanda?
When the director suggests that Wanda is the villain, Monica interrupts and tells him she clearly disagrees. She is also heard giving her testimony as to how painful the experience was. Hayward then shows Monica a clip of Wanda breaking into the top-secret facility that was holding Vision’s corpse.
Wanda is seen breaking glasses in the CCTV footage as she gets nearer to Vision’s body. Hayward seems to think Wanda wants to harm people as she has people hostage while Monica argues that she could have had everybody in the world hostage but she did not.
This sheds light on the theory that Wanda brought Vision back from the dead. It is revealed that Scarlet Witch resurrected Vision nine days ago. It is also confirmed that she has been holding the people in the town hostage against their knowledge. Wanda uses her powers in front of Agnes as Vision asks her why did she do that. She brushes it off saying Agnes did not even notice it. Wanda also deems that they no longer have to hide who they are as she is tired.
While Vision is at his workplace, he receives an email from Darcy Lewis, who is currently working for S.W.O.R.D. As soon as his colleague starts reading the mail, everyone else in the office echoes the same mail. Vision grows suspicious and wipes Wanda’s mind control off of his colleague. His colleague screams in terror and asks Vision to help and tells him she is talking to me in my head.
Wanda Comes Out Of Her Reality
Meanwhile, back at Wanda and Vision’s house, S.W.O.R.D. sends in an airplane like the one Monica had sent in at the beginning. Only this one was more advanced than the previous one. They go into the town with the drone as they simultaneously check on the television.
Monica calls out to Wanda as the camera zooms in on her. The TV sitcom that Wanda has created does not really show the drone. However, Wanda’s eyes light up with her power as Hayward orders his team to take aim. This shocks Monica as she asks him what he did.
There is a breach in the bubble Wanda has created as the team of S.W.O.R.D runs out with their weapons. After some moments we can spot Wanda coming out of the bubble with the drone. She warns them for the last time as Monica asks her how she can help. Wanda asks them to leave her alone as she has what she wants.
Scarlet Witch seemingly makes the bubble around Westview even stronger as it beams in red light. She goes back inside and begins to search for their dog who ran away. The dog however dies and is found by Agnes. The twins ask Wanda to bring their dog back to which she explains how there is a way to handle grief and accept the events.
Vision confronts Wanda as she tells him she does not know how all of this started. However, they are interrupted by the doorbell and Vision suspects Wanda caused a distraction. She tries to tell him she did not do it and goes to open the door. And it is none other than Quicksilver, Wanda’s brother. However, it is not Aaron Taylor-Johnson who died in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It is Evan Peters who was Quicksilver in X-Men. Basically, X-Men are in the MCU now confirming the theory of the multiverse.
