WandaVision episode 7 recap: Disney Plus Marvel show takes dark Modern Family turn

Wanda doesn’t even know what to think any more, but she’s about to get some answers.

WandaVision took a suitably modern turn on Friday, with episode 7 — Breaking the Fourth Wall — of the Marvel Cinematic Universe show hitting Disney Plus. Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) expanded Westview’s boundaries to save Vision (Paul Bettany) from certain death after he stepped outside the sitcom town.

In doing so, she dragged astrophysicist Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) and dozens of government agents into her false world. However, SWORD agent Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and FBI guy Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) escaped the expansion, since they’d left to meet Monica’s mysterious aerospace engineer friend.

It’s SPOILER time.

She’s earned a wicked cackle.

It’s been Agatha all along

In a deeply unsurprising (but beautifully executed) twist, it turns out the ludicrously suspicious Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) was a baddy the whole time. Wanda enters her creepy basement looking for her missing twins, and Agnes reveals herself to be the witch Agatha Harkness. Turns out she was responsible for everything that’s gone wrong or weird in Westview, including the arrival of Pietro Maximoff from the Fox X-Men universe (Evan Peters).

“And I killed Sparky too,” she says, cackling. 

That’s the step too far Agatha. Killer theme song though.

The book in Agatha’s basement could be the Darkhold, previously seen in Agents of SHIELD.

A bigger bad?

There are a few hints that there’s another force at work — including super prominent cicada on the curtain in Agatha’s living room. It’s not a million miles from a fly, a form taken by the demon Mephisto in his first chronological comics appearance. I’m sure glad MCU Spider-Man isn’t married.

“Ralph says I supercoat things,” Agatha says during one of her interviews, referring to her unseen husband (and suggesting he’s worse than she is).

Also, where the heck are Tommy and Billy? This whole facade is probably a scheme to get hold of Wanda and Vision’s superpowered children, so… success?

Snoopers and creepers.
