WandaVision Teases Scarlet Witch Is The Real Villain

Scarlet Witch Real Villain: 

As we said earlier, WandaVision has left its viewers wondering throughout its episodes. Why wouldn’t it? The show did not have a single tease before its premiere except the ambiguous posters indicating their costumes, and so little about the plot. Marvel Studios had to be discreet about it as they legit released a project after over a year and kicked off its Phase 4 with WandaVision. We did not see Vision ever since the unfortunate events in Avengers: Infinity War, where he was killed by Wanda first to stop Thanos from using the full power of the Infinity Gauntlet. But then Thanos used the Time Stone to reverse the events and eventually killed Vision anyway to take the Mind Stone. In WandaVision, he is seen living with his love, Wanda, in a reality that is entirely weird. But now, we can see WandaVision giving us hints towards the real villain.

Towards the end of the second episode, we see that Wanda and Vision discover the strange beekeeper crawling out of the sewer, and we still don’t get an answer to that misery. But yet again, we see Wanda altering the instance around her, and Vision too. Toward the end of Episode 3 amid the chaos of Wanda going into labor and delivering their babies, Vision notices multiple strange instances with the doctor who assists in the births as well as with their neighbors. When he attempts to speak about his concerns with Wanda, she appears to be taken aback before the episode quickly jumps back in time a few moments. The scene then plays out once again, but Vision is much more like the cliché sitcom dad that he’s been portrayed as through much of the series thus far. Instead of expressing concerns about the town of Westview like he did previously, Vision consoles Wanda and tells her that they will get through this experience together. Wanda appears to be much happier with this reaction, and Vision doesn’t appear concerned that Geraldine mysteriously disappeared from their home.

Earlier, we also saw Monica Rambeau trying to enter the bubble of reality that Wanda has created for herself, but then Wanda supposedly blasts her out of their home and their bubble reality. of course, no one can doubt the true power of Wanda, as we have seen in Avengers: Endgame, where she forced Thanos to hill her own troops just to save his own life as Wanda was empowering her. After assisting in the birth of the kids, Wanda confides to Monica that she had a brother named Pietro. But then Monica strikes again. This revelation kind of pinched Monica’s memories and she asks Wanda if he was killed by Ultron, as seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Monica seems to immediately realize she screwed up and shook Wanda from this paradise, as Wanda then interrogates her about how she knows about Ultron and who “Geraldine” really is. When Wanda recognizes the SWORD logo on a pendant around Monica’s next, a sinister look comes across her face as the scene cuts. The episode then closes with Geraldine, blasted out of the bubble and landing on the military perimeter surrounding the town of Westview. As helicopters and black SUVs swarm her position, the credits hit Monica Rambeau now on the outskirts of Westview.

WandaVision episode 2 took its cues more from such 1960s offerings like Bewitched. Evermore eager to blend in with the community, Wanda and Vision signed up for a charity talent show. Those efforts served to introduce more of Westview’s residents, including Dottie (Emma Caulfield) and Beverly (Jolene Purdy). Though the usual sitcom hijinks ensued, things again concluded in a customarily successful fashion as Scarlet Witch and Vision earned the adoration of their neighbors. Firstly, in WandaVision episode 1, Mrs. Hart was somewhat able to break through whatever brainwashing or psychic hold had taken hold of the town. Such moments occurred repeatedly, often preceded by a seeming signal interruption coming through radio transmissions and the like. In Mrs. Hart’s case, however, it seemed to be through sheer force of mental will.

Though her expression maintained the sitcom facade, her words and tone of panic were clear. As her husband choked, Mrs. Hart implored Wanda to “stop it”. Now the theory suggests that Westview, where Wanda and Vision are currently living, was a utopian society of witches that has been corrupted. If Agnes is indeed Agatha Harkness, there would actually be some precedent in the comics for Westview to be a magically-hidden sanctuary. Despite her youthful appearance on the show, Agatha Harkness was actually many centuries old on the page. As a result, she has witnessed and endured some of the world’s greatest atrocities.
