WandaVision episode 7 recap: Disney Plus Marvel show takes dark Modern Family turnFebruary 19, 2021
took a suitably modern turn on Friday, with — Breaking the Fourth Wall — of the show hitting . Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) expanded Westview’s boundaries to save Vision (Paul Bettany) from certain death after he 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.
It’s been Agatha all along
In a deeply unsurprising (but beautifully executed) twist, it turns out theAgnes (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 of Pietro Maximoff from the (Evan Peters).
“And Itoo,” she says, cackling.
That’s the step too far Agatha. Killer theme song though.
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?
