Okay, some of those are nothing, and half of that is reaching.

BUT some of those are really fun and I love them. Especially the toaster thing. That's pretty cool.

Maybe I'm reaching now, but I definitely think TV and movies are incentivizing rewatches. Which is cool, I guess.

Wasn't the beeping Stark Industries bomb a callback to the first Iron Man?

I gave up on it during the first episode but gave it another shot and it's pretty good, if confusing, especially if you're not an expert on The Avengers.

I've seen a few reviewers rag on the episode for essentially recapping the first seven, but I thought it did a fantastic job of putting everything in context and focusing on the emotions of the characters and town. Olsen, Hahn, and Bettany crushed it.

Westview looks exactly like what a depressed, early white flight city in Jersey would today.

As they once again miss the point of the show. Recap episodes are also a common TV trope that was (apparently a bit too subtlety) incorporated in Wandavision.

I am firmly convinced that all reviewers need to STFU until the series is complete. It's like critiquing a movie after 15 minutes. And then again after another 15 minutes. And so on. Wandavision has obviously been, from the very first episode, a series that can only be judged in its entirety.

Shout-out to the writer of this week's episode, too. Knowing that the entire show was built around dealing with grief and that it came from real experiences with therapy helps ground it as much as a show about a witch in love with a dead robot can be.
 
2021-02-27 11:18:29 AM  
....oh. it's on every week. I just binge watched (I hate that expression but it's here to stay) the first seven. I thought they dropped whole seasons at a time like most streaming shows and seven was the season finale. I thought seven was an odd number, I mean it is an odd number but I meant for number of shows in a season. Cool.

So fake Pietro is a fake controlled by Agatha?  That's disappointing, I was hoping it was that version of Quicksilver because he's great.

I take it that both kids had magical powers or something and the mind stone just enhanced them?  Pietro was inexplicably kinda left out of that part.

I thought Wanda had stolen Vision's corpse but I guess not.

We've been rewatching the full MCU canon over the last few weeks (introducing our 10 year old to it), and we happened to hit Age of Ultron on Thursday night.  Getting Wanda's story from AoS and then seeing this episode the next day was an interesting experience.

She's the only person in Westview who wasn't either there to start with or a SWORD agent sucked into the Hex. She came on her own to figure out what was happening, because Wanda was exhibiting a ridiculous amount of power, and was only ever playing along with the Westview illusion.

Her theory, after pulling Wanda into a whole theater of the mind deal, is that Wanda was a minor magical talent that would've gone nowhere with it, but then she got tweaked by the Mind Stone. Now she's a chaos magician who can create entire people out of nowhere and warp a sizable chunk of local reality around her little finger.

I couldn't help but notice that every single time Wanda uses her powers, the magical energy is red...except when she (re)creates Vision.  Then it's yellow.  That got me thinking...maybe when Wanda killed Vision, she absorbed (or copied) his mind/personality/essence/call it what you will.  Then later regurgitated it in Westview into a fake Vision constructed out of chaos magic.  So now we have fake magic Vision, who has Vision's personality, but who cannot exist outside the hex.  And we have White Vision, which is essentially Vision's original body, but whose mind is simply that of a cold emotionless automaton

So, if you put the mind and body back together...Vision is alive again in the MCU.

And, if you go by the comics.... It's not just local reality she can alter. I mean, the way Agatha said The Scarlet Witch felt like an incantation. Kinda the same way you would refer to The Phoenix.

I am firmly convinced that all reviewers need to STFU until the series is complete. It's like critiquing a movie after 15 minutes. And then again after another 15 minutes. And so on. Wandavision has obviously been, from the very first episode, a series that can only be judged in its entirety.


Why, it's almost as if it was planned out and shot years in advance, leading into a greater network of continuity betwixt TV shows and movies based on decades of comics stories that have been condensed and streamlined for maximum emotional effect.

Yeah, I went there. I said "betwixt".

It's a story about moving through the 5 stages of grief.  The writers just use a superhero setting to tell that story.

I think we all agree with that, but the insane overexagerration by the author of "violently weeping" for 30 minutes while watching the show is eye-rolling and something a high schooler would write.

If you don't end every episode with a gun in your mouth, you're a monster.

Dr. Horrible: I couldn't help but notice that every single time Wanda uses her powers, the magical energy is red...except when she (re)creates Vision.  Then it's yellow.  That got me thinking...maybe when Wanda killed Vision, she absorbed (or copied) his mind/personality/essence/call it what you will.  Then later regurgitated it in Westview into a fake Vision constructed out of chaos magic.  So now we have fake magic Vision, who has Vision's personality, but who cannot exist outside the hex.  And we have White Vision, which is essentially Vision's original body, but whose mind is simply that of a cold emotionless automaton

So, if you put the mind and body back together...Vision is alive again in the MCU.


No one ever dies in superhero comics except Batman's parents and uncle Ben.

scalpod: As a (if not *the* most) powerful witch, she was attracted like a moth to the 'hex' that Wanda created, which she wants to understand and control - for her own ends. What's not to grok?

Even (and especially) if you're not familiar with the comics, this isn't rocket surgery or rocket magic, baby Wanda.


The only thing I did get about it was the previous episode they told us it was Agatha all along!
Then this episode it wasn't!

They made it appear Agatha was responsible and making Wanda feel responsible.

Now they show minute by minute, detail by detail (it was like the phantom menace of episodes) how every single thing happened and how Wanda was responsible for everything.

Agatha All Along was just saying she was responsible for the things Wanda tried to do or change, but failed. Like the magic act or Fake Pietro (Fietro).

Then you have "white Vision" (post credit scene) who is probably Ultron.


There's no personality in it at all.  Ultron wasn't just an inherent part of the material, and never fully inhabited that body anyway.

taintbaggins: Wanda drives a Buick


It's either promotional or something rather innocuous.  Occam's razor tells me that she drives a Buick because she doesn't want to 'stand out', that she'd rather have what seems like a normal life. Also growing up in a very poor, war riddled country like Sokovia taught her the value of money.  Buick (nee GM) makes mostly decent to good vehicles for a reasonable price. Plus they don't stand out. Wanda seems to want that. Basically 'retiring' to a middle to lower class city like Westview also fits her personality.  Stark drives (drove...) an R8 V10 because it fits his personality, and Audi (nee Volkswagen) were important contributors to the bottom line for those earlier movies. He coulda drove a run-of-the-mill A5 but that's not Stark.

While I do sort of agree with you regarding the hyperbole (30 minutes, really?), it it was a very emotional episode for me personally. I just lost my spouse a few months ago, unexpectedly and at far too young an age, and this series has had so many "rings true" moments regarding grief and loss of that kind.  So many times in television shows and movies the traumatic nature of grief doesn't quite come across as real, like the writers have heard about it but only experienced it in some minor form.  But not in this show, not for me, not for people who have experienced that sort of pain and loss.  If the writer of that article has experienced it in their own lives, then I totally understand how this episode could leave them in tears.  It's all about your personal experience and how you relate to the material you're watching.  The part when Wanda visits the home that Vision had bought for them smacked me real hard and did leave me in quite a state - my wife died not 10 minutes after we had put an offer on our "forever" home (and now here I am crying, leaving a comment about a comment about a superhero show about grief).  Myths and legends have always been away for humans two more fully understand and come to grips with the world around them in the world inside them.  Superheroes are just the latest iteration, but this sort of storytelling has literally been going on since we have been human beings.  In a way, it is these kinds of stories that make us human. Those kind of stories can be deep and profound, no matter what ridiculous costumes the characters are wearing.

Show sucks, the premise was tired after 2 episodes, but the writing fails to persuade me to invest in... anything. Wanda and Vision just fail to click as a couple, because I simply don't believe that they love each other, I don't see the basis for their relationship even after seven episodes, the writing/directing sucks that much.  The writers know this so they rely on laugh tracks and hammy TV tropes to sell it, and ultimately just give up and have Kat Denning (More like FAT Denning, jesus girl) stand in for the audience and just tell us they belong together.

Well I'm sold. It worked for Spock, so by the transitive property of television logic... White vision vs Hex vision Superman 3 junkyard fight.

Agnes and Wanda have to use their powers to merge them maybe?

Somehow end up merging because can half a vision live without true love? We get a happy ending for Vision and Wanda and begin Phase 4 knowing Hayward is evil, but still running SWORD.

Then post credits sequence with Dr Strange and Spidey stinger!

I mistakenly thought there would eventually be a WandaVision discussion without someone bragging about giving up on the show early because of laugh tracks.
there's always next week.

I read a prediction earlier that when Paul Bettany teased that finale had a cameo of an actor "he'd always wanted to work with", he wasn't talking about Dr.Strange or either Magnito or Loki or whomever; he was talking about himself playing the White Vision.
Right now, my guess is there isn't a huge cameo in the finale, but I'll be bummed if Dr.Strange doesn't show up.

Could have just been a rental. Wanda didn't have a permanent address to register a car after Civil War because she and Vision were on the run, and then she was Snapped for five years, so it would be odd if she actually owned a car in the US.

Well sure, they can do anything they want with animation but I don't think Robert Downy Jr is coming back as Iron Man for example. They can't even do the 1990s think with him like with Black Widow, since we already saw his origin.

While probably not... There are canon Life Model Decoys in Agents of Shield which is on again off again canon for MCU. They also could get alternate universe Tony Starks, or have other folks put on the suit... Iron Man coming back doesn't strictly have to mean RDJ, but there's not strictly a reason they couldn't.

Personally, I think the TV show stuff hits if you are a certain age. I know my son (13) got lost on it a bit, and I had to do some 'splaining (ha ha), but for me as soon as I saw the transitions from decade to decade happen I was totally hooked. Then add in the MCU layers on top and this show is phenomenal.

I mean there's a dozen cockadoodie ways to bring back any character from "the dead" that will have most of the audience cheering, except for one sad sack on Quora


I'm not saying that the MCU couldn't reintroduce LMDs. I just means that I wouldn't take anything in AoS to mean it already exists in the MCU.

swankywanky: Personally, I think the TV show stuff hits if you are a certain age. I know my son (13) got lost on it a bit, and I had to do some 'splaining (ha ha), but for me as soon as I saw the transitions from decade to decade happen I was totally hooked. Then add in the MCU layers on top and this show is phenomenal.


I liked how it showed how farking awful 1980s and 1990s sitcoms were, as well as the worst thing to happen to humanity, the reality show.

/there were some sitcoms that didn't suck back then but they had to not involve a family and kids

swankywanky: dywed88: Mugato: I gave up on it during the first episode but gave it another shot and it's pretty good, if confusing, especially if you're not an expert on The Avengers.

The sitcom stuff was tedious. But the larger stuff is great.

I absolutely encourage anyone who tuned out after the first couple episodes to watch episode four because that is where the show get VERY different.

I like old sitcoms (I stand by All in the Family being the greatest TV series of all time).

I just don't thought those episodes sucked.

Guys. I figured it out.

Wanda drives a Buick

The episode name: Agatha All Along

I think we know who the REAL mastermind in the MCU is now. And look at what color the logo is? Red.

I rest my case. Your witness.


Red and blue make purple, which is Agatha's magic color.

They didn't do reality shows. The character testimonials were spoofing The Office and Modern Family type sitcoms.

The Office and Modern Family shows in turn spoofed reality shows.

Well either way, they did the whole "breaking the fourth wall" thing, whether it was the reality shows or shows like Parks and Rec.

taintbaggins: Wanda drives a Buick


If you've spotted their car through the years on the show, Wanda and Vision have *always* driven Buicks.

Mad_Radhu: Aezetyr: taintbaggins: Wanda drives a Buick

It's either promotional or something rather innocuous.  Occam's razor tells me that she drives a Buick because she doesn't want to 'stand out', that she'd rather have what seems like a normal life. Also growing up in a very poor, war riddled country like Sokovia taught her the value of money.  Buick (nee GM) makes mostly decent to good vehicles for a reasonable price. Plus they don't stand out. Wanda seems to want that. Basically 'retiring' to a middle to lower class city like Westview also fits her personality.  Stark drives (drove...) an R8 V10 because it fits his personality, and Audi (nee Volkswagen) were important contributors to the bottom line for those earlier movies. He coulda drove a run-of-the-mill A5 but that's not Stark.

Could have just been a rental. Wanda didn't have a permanent address to register a car after Civil War because she and Vision were on the run, and then she was Snapped for five years, so it would be odd if she actually owned a car in the US.


Technically Vision wasn't on the run when we catch up with everyone in the Sanctum sanctorum, Vision had only turned his transponder 2 weeks earlier while he was with Wanda.
