‘Breaking The Fourth Wall’- WandaVision Episode 7 Recap and Review

We’ve made it to the 2010s on WandaVision. This time around, they pay tribute to shows like Modern Family and The Office. The theme tune is extremely similar to The Office theme, and the characters often break the fourth wall.

Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) doesn’t have the energy to get out of bed after the traumatic events of Halloween Night. She didn’t even make it out of her costume before falling into bed. I can relate to lack of energy and motivation to do anything. Who doesn’t?

She decides to punish herself with a staycation which includes forfeiting parental responsibility of Billy (Julian Hilliard) and Tommy (Jett Klyne). The boys try to get her out of bed, but Wanda refuses to budge. Billy tells her his head is “noisy, ” and he doesn’t like it. But even this isn’t a cause for motherly concern.

The boys are in the living room trying to play video games, but something strange is happening: the controllers are glitching. They change from modern to old-school before turning into UNO cards.

Wanda finally manages to stumble down the stairs to break up her fighting twins before going to the kitchen to fix breakfast. The milk container glitches and changes from glass bottle to cardboard carton to back again. She has no idea why this is happening.

Back in reality Director Hayward (Josh Stamberg) and Agent Goodner (Rachael Thompson) are standing outside the Hex, thankful that they weren’t captured inside. He asks her what’s happening on the broadcast. She tells him that there is none. They can’t see what’s going on inside of WestView. This won’t stop Hayward from carry out his plans, and tells Agent Goodner to keep preparing for today’s launch. Launch of what? We’re not given an answer.

Meanwhile, Vision (Paul Bettany) and Darcy (Kat Dennings) are mistaken for circus performers, thanks to Wanda’s WestView Circus expansion.

Vision tries to remind Darcy what happened the night before outside the hex. Now that Darcy’s inside, she has no memory, and believes that Vision is coming onto her. I think it’s the most amusing part of the episode.

Back at the house, The boys ask where Vision is. Wanda doesn’t know. Billy asks her about what Pietro said about Vision dying twice. Wanda tells him not to listen to him and says Pietro’s not their uncle. If he’s not Pietro, then who is he?

Wanda then proceeds to have a mental breakdown in front of the twins telling them that life’s meaningless. Not her best parenting move!

Agnes drops by unexpectedly and offers to take the twins off Wanda’s hands for a while. The boys are hesitant to leave their mom, but Wanda insists they leave, and Agnes herds them out the door.

When Wanda’s alone, the entire house starts to glitch and revert back to the 70s era in episode three.

While Agent Woo (Randall Park) and Monica (Teyoyah Parris) drive back to the Hex they discuss what Hayward could be up to. An eagle-eyed viewer noticed that the text Jimmy was reading from revealed that Hayward was the one to send the email to Vision in episode five.

In episode six it’s revealed that Hayward is keeping tabs on Vision. Monica and Jimmy speculate what this could mean.

~

“Hayward wasn’t trying to decommission Vision. He was trying to bring him back online.” – Jimmy Woo

~

Monica concludes that “Hayward wants his sentinet weapon back.” For what? Another Ultron level genocide event?

They arrive at S.W.O.R.D.’s temporary base where Monica tries to enter back into the Hex by way of space rover. Monica suits up and tries driving through the hex but it refuses to let her through. It forces the rover backwards. The hex tries rewriting the rover so it fits into Westview. Monica manages to escape.  The hex rejects the rover and ejects it. The rover has been changed to a truck.

Meanwhile, back at the circus, Vision continues trying to break through to Darcy with little success. He finally distracts her long enough to undo Wanda’s spell and snap her back to reality. They manage to escape the circus via funnel cake truck. Paul Bettany and Kat Dennings are comedy gold when paired together!

Back at the house, Wanda’s world continues to glitch through several previous eras of the show. The stork from the nursery in episode three even makes a cameo!

The boys are at Agne’s house. Billy tells her he likes it there because it’s quiet. The noise inside his head has stopped. He tells her, “You’re quiet, Agnes. On the inside.” She looks at him strangely.

Back at S.W.O.R.D. Headquarters, Monica suits up and tries driving through the hex but it refuses to let her through. It forces the rover backwards. The hex tries rewriting the rover so it fits into Westview. Monica manages to escape.  The hex rejects the rover and ejects it. The rover has been changed to a truck.

To Jimmy’s dismay, Monica decides to run through the Hex on her own. This is the first time we see the inside of the Hex. It’s all static, wavy lines, and flashing lights and is one of the most aesthetically pleasing scenes of the episode. This is also a superhero origin story for Monica; this is where we see get her powers. As she pushes her way through, she’s surrounded by the voices of her mom, Nick Fury, and her Aunt Carol. This was a beautiful scene to watch and an empowering moment for Monica. One of the best scene of the episode!

On the drive back to the house, Darcy tries to jog Vision’s memory of past events that occurred during Infinity War. How does Darcy know about his death and that Wanda had to watch?! She wasn’t even there! Maybe she was given a crash course in history over the last five years? They keep getting stuck in traffic on the way back to the house.

Vision thinks Wanda’s to blame for the traffic. He doesn’t think she wants him to come home and using her magic to create obstacles.

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Monica bursts into Wanda’s house unannounced to warn her about Hayward and his plans for Vision. But Wanda won’t listen. She uses her powers to remove Monica from her house. When Monica lands, a lightning bolt appears and her eyes glow signifying she has powers of some kind.


Wanda accuses Monica of being the reason for all the bad things happening including the drones, missiles, and the fake Pietro.

♥️♥️♥️♥️

MONICA: No, wait, Pietro, no, no, no, that wasn’t us.

WANDA: All you do is lie!

MONICA: The only lies I’ve told are the ones you put in my mouth

♥️♥️♥️♥️
Monica tells Wanda not to let Hayward turn her into a villain. Wanda believes she already is one. Agnes watches the entire exchange from her window and goes out intervene. She acts very protective of Wanda but why?

Agnes takes Wanda back to her place. Wanda wants to know where the boys are. Agnes thinks they’re in the basement. Wanda heads down into the creepiest basement ever but the boys are missing.

Agnes confronts Wanda and reveals she’s Agatha Harkness, a witch.


It was a reveal that comics fans saw coming. (🙋) It wasn’t a huge surprise, but the reveal was fun! Especially when accompanied by a catchy theme song that pays tribute to The Munsters.

It’s revealed that Agatha has been behind all the strange goings-on in Westview. Including Pietro dropping by unexpectedly and killing Sparky.

This episode has the first mid-credits scene of the show: Monica investigates around Agatha’s house and opens the doors to the basement, “Pietro” sneaks up behind her saying, “Snoopers gonna snoop.”


I wonder what will happen next on WandaVision

Rumors

***********

According to Deadline, rumors going around at CinemaCon are saying that Dr Strange could be released in November 2020. This is highly doubtful considering that previous reports from The Hollywood Reporter said that Dr. Strange has a May 2021 release date. Another wrench thrown into this particular rumor is that The Eternals, which seems to be further along in development, is rumored to be released in November 2020. No one will know for sure until Marvel makes the official announcement.

The Canberra Times reported the rumor that Shang-Chi, Marvel’s first film with an Asian protagonist could be coming to Sydney, Australia for filming.

********

A rumor has been shared by Deadline that Deathlok, a character seen in Agents of Shield, could be introduced in the MCU. This is just a rumor at this point. Nothing has been confirmed.

I liked the character in Agents of Shield and think it’d be cool to him in a movie. I wonder if J. August Richards would return or if Marvel would recast him.

MCU Cosmic has reported the rumor that the male lead in The Eternals will be an LGBT superhero named Hercules. Marvel is currently looking for an openly gay actor for the role. This news hasn’t been confirmed, but an announcement on who will be playing this character will be happening in the near future.
