    The only Marvel show that was exclusive to a streaming platform before WandaVision was Runaways, which aired on Hulu.

    And glowing blue when she finally made it through the hex wall/border, while she was seeing energy signatures or whatever. Definitely fitting in with her powers in the comics.

    I'm assuming since one of her several comic book monikers is "Spectrum", that at least part of her powers is that she can perceive the *entire* EM spectrum. So everything from radio & microwave all the way up to x-ray & gamma.
    Indeed, aside from the obvious EM fields around the powerlines, the sky certainly looked a lot like some deep space x-ray maps I've seen.

    Did Holland let another secret out of the bag? Is his praise a not so subtle hint he will show up on the show!

    Fassbender isn’t playing the dad? Madness!
    The big reveal at the end made me laugh. We’ve known that since the start. :)

    Looks like they’ve made a evil Vision. Giving me some Logan vibes this.

    I think it's still inconclusive on the Magneto front. For all we know the Maximoffs could have adopted the twins as infants. Or not. Even the comics have gone back and forth on this point over the decades.

    At the very least they've established that Wanda had some kind of innate enhanced ability--a mutation, if you will--before the mind stone amplified it. That it also game Pietro powers, and that they weren't magical like Wanda's would seem to established that their "mutation" is 1) genetic, and 2) not necessarily a magical inclination; that's just how it happened to manifest in Wanda.

    One aspect of this I found interesting: prior to this it was established that the objects being transformed were doing so in accordance with the law of physics (matter and energy not being created or destroyed, only changed from one state to another) but here we see Wanda manifesting not just a house out of literal nothingness, but a whole new Vision complete with an infinity stone. If the latter is the real deal and not a cosmetic facsimile, that's truly some horrifyingly powerful chaos magic. Suddenly the image of an unexploded bomb is seeming more and more relevant...

    On the positive side, the early episodes are retroactively a lot less creepy now we know she wasn't in matter of fact puppeteering her ex's corpse.

    The only piece of the puzzle left that doesn't seem to fit is the WITSEC witness.

    Fascinating revelations. I was at peace at the idea that Wanda and Pietro gained their powers wholesale from the Mind Stone thanks to vague Hydra experimentation, but the show has retroactively (or maybe this was the plan all along?) stated that they maybe had those innate yet dormant powers all along and the Mind Stone helped them become alive. Like terrigenesis with Inhumans as seen in Agents of SHIELD.

    Now I wonder if this is how they'll introduce mutants into the MCU. However, there's one major problem with that: Mind Stone no longer exists. In this universe. Will the creation of mutants ultimately occur as a direct result of multiverse shenanigans of Phase 4 via the same process that happened to Wanda and Pietro?

    Interesting to note that Wanda, in fact, did not break in and steal Vision's body and apparently the footage that Hayward showed was doctored. However, that leaves the question of why Hayward would have that fake footage handy to show Monica, Darcy, and Jimmy? Did he suspect ahead of time that he would need such footage to justify his against Wanda? Wouldn't taking over Westview be enough? And how was some tech able to doctor such footage so quickly (remember, the real world timeline is pretty short here)? Or am I overthinking things yet again?

    Speaking of creating something fast, SWORD seemingly created white Vision (!!!!) awfully fast in the period of time between Wanda's visit and SWORD's arrival at Westview. How were they able to do that and managed to reanimate him with a new power source? And what's the nature of the new gem on his forehead? What kind of AI mind will he have? How did they manage all of that in such a short time? Or was the disembodied corpse all a show for Wanda's visit? However, that would lead to even more questions, such as how did they know ahead of time to have such a display handy and have it displayed next to the director's office? It's pretty likely that Wanda went straight there after Tony's snap and SWORD had no way of knowing such an event would occur.

    And there's one last major revelation: Agatha is a centuries old witch dating back to at least the 17th century. I loved how the prologue played with our expectations that she was going to be burned to the stake as part of the "normal" Salem witch trials, only to quickly reveal that it was her own coven that had turned against her. I wonder what truly ghastly thing Agatha did that caused them, including her own mother, to attempt to destroy her, but it's clear that Agatha was much more powerful than all of them. Or maybe they accidentally caused her to become more powerful when she absorbed their energies and life forces?

    Sadly, no Darcy, Monica, Jimmy, or Pietro in this one. There's going to be a lot of stuff happening in this final episode with lots of unanswered questions still lingering (including the true nature of Vision, Billy, and Tommy). Hopefully it's an extra long one!
