    If the corpse was still there she could have gone zombie-alternate Wanda like Doctor Strange did.

    Wanda never even got around to picking a universe to go to anyway. Getting America's power was always step one, no matter which universe she chose to go to. The only reason this specific version of Wanda and the kids drew the short stick is because they lived in the universe where America and Strange were hiding.

    That only worked because Strange very specifically knew about that corpse. Wanda wouldn't know what was going on with any corpse versions of hers she found.

    And that started her path. Unacknowledged grief can be devastating.

    Yes, because it varies for everyone.

    Yeah, I figure what they did was like grooming a bonsai tree.
    Not just a single stem or line, but make sure the different branches and leafs didn’t grow out of control and maintained a desired shape.
    They were fine with splitting off timelines, as long as they didn’t redline.
    We always had multiple timelines, they just stayed very similar and close to each other in a lab orderly torus shape.

    notice how the visuals from the series finale didn’t show a single strand, it was a big stem, or a tight but thick bundle of lines.

    So I just watched a fun little short on YouTube where the creator of the clip has an interesting theory.

    The Darkhold still exists.
    Basically, the book was a copy of the original spells and runes and everything on the walls in that temple. Wanda destroyed all the books throught out the multiverse and the temple.
    Interesting tidbit from Dr Strange 1, where Mordo asks him how he learned all the spells from the book of Cagliostro so quickly. He responds that he has a photographic memory and that's how he got through medschool.
    We see our Strange going through the Darkhold looking for the right spell, probably remembering everything he saw. Meaning the Darkhold exists in Stephen.

    I know, silly little thing. But I always love how some enthousiasts can really get into little details like that.

    Actually, that makes a lot of sense and correlates with his third eye. The question is did Stephen go through the whole book or does he retain only partial knowledge of the Darkhold.

    I'm guessing we'll either find out in the sequel when Disney sees that video and realizes they missed a huuuuuuuge plot point and work with a fan theory.

    Yeah that actually does sound extremely plausible.

    Writer Michael Waldron revealed that his first draft of the film included a post-credits scene with Mr. Fantastic:

    “In my very first draft, I wrote a tag just for the hell of it, of the events of the movie being recorded and reviewed by somebody in the Baxter Building, and a stretchy hand coming into frame to run it back.”​
