Wanda taking antidepressants in episode seven of Wandavision means so much to mean to me. Having a character with such power dealing with a mental illnesses, that so many can relate to on a daily basis. The representation just means so much to me.
I’m writing (and close to posting the first chapter!) a new X-Men fic that’s based off WandaVision but it’s Dadneto and his kids (Peter, Wanda, Lorna, and Nina). And, of course, I’m calling it House of M!
(I also made different ‘title cards’ for each of the decades, and I can’t edit to save my life, so I’m lowkey proud of myself!!)
hmm okay we know Agatha was trying to convince Wanda to bring Sparky back to life….and then Agatha brought Pietro in to further mess with Wanda, but she didn’t bring this dimensions Pietro back to life? Maybe that’s one power she doesn’t like, Have, but needs to bring someone back for whatever her plan is. Wanda brought Vision back to life but she doesn’t seem to remember how she did it/understands it wasn’t like, morally the best move which is why she let Sparky stay dead….maybe Agatha realized she’d need a little more motivation to convince Wanda to use that power again. so she killed Billy and Tommy knowing that’ll definitely break Wanda down to her lowest again and she’d definitely resurrect them
Episode 7: Breaking the Fourth Wall left a lot to be digested and honestly too much for a single post so I’ll be doing a few topical breakdowns.
Wrong: So before the series premiere contrary to popular opinion I predicted that Agnes wasn’t Agatha Harkness and while I still have reason to hold out that she’s hasn’t been manipulating everything let’s just run with it. Not afraid to say I’m wrong and again I don’t go against the grain to be edgy I’m honestly glad to see she is a comic book character in Agatha but I just like to predict and fancast outside of the box so no need for I told you so’s.
Agnes: Was Agatha all along… I saw someone say that they don’t remember Agatha Harkness being a straight up villain to which I agree. So I’m gonna go with the many who believe she’s just a pond for a greater threat which would explain the scary mystical book. We saw another example of this with Kaecilius working on behalf of Dormammu in Doctor Strange where seemingly his dark dimension is where Kaecilius drew his magic from and used a page in a similar book to summon him to Earth. However we have reason to believe that she is not working for Dormammu because when anyone did use his magic their eye line would be burned or some type of physical indication would show on their face. Before jumping into guesses of who she’s serving there’s also the why Agatha would want to partake in any of this? Many would assume its “for the children” but she really doesn’t seem all that interested in them for herself but perhaps her magic backer does.
Prediction: I imagine it has something to do with Wanda’s ability to as Tommy said “fix the dead” to which she seemed *gasp* “You can do that?!” In MCU fashion I believe she’s a Wanda parallel where she lost her husband “Ralph” which explains why we haven’t seen him yet and is doing whatever it takes to get him back including serving a greater more evil master and meddling with the likes of Wanda aka Strongest Avenger.
Not Pietro: I would say not to hold your breath that Evan Peters still might be the Fox X-Men Quicksilver Peter Maximoff just brainwashed by Agatha. I also don’t believe he’s Agnes’s husband Ralph either but of course I’ve been “wrong” before. So naturally I don’t believe he’s the bigger bad of Dormammu or Nightmare or Mephisto. For the sake of being boring a wanting a more self contained Wanda and Vision storyline I believe he was just there for a mid season finale type thriller and he’s just a small time pond of Agatha’s.
Prediction: If you recognize the sweaty face above that would be Robert Coleman aka The Whizzer from Marvel Netflix Jessica Jones. Who dat? The “other” lesser known Marvel speedster who actually debuted in the comics in a Scarlet Witch title - the Whizzer Robert Frank that is. That would explain his super speed ability and would be a nice nod to the forgotten man PLUS apparently there was an Easter Egg for him in the Ep2 intro - blink and you might miss it. To be clear I believe Evan Peters is the actual Whizzer Robert Frank. Why he is doing any of this is beyond me but if anyone knows that comic reference of him or how it ended for poor Robby Coleman up there… Well it doesn’t end pretty.
Magic: I love just bringing this up because I’m sure it’ll come up later. Ant-Man established that energy can be pulled from another dimension (come to think of it the way Vision awakens people in the Hex is exactly the same way Janet Van Dyne manipulates Quantum Energy). Doctor Strange established that magic too is pulled from another dimension and manifested in our world. Then Thor way back when said that where he comes from science and magic are on in the same. We know that Wanda isn’t actually a witch doing magic and that her powers derive from the Mind Stone but for Agatha that book and wherever it came from is the source of her powers. For those wondering both Agents of SHIELD and Hulu’s The Runaways depicted the Darkhold to literally have it spelled out on the cover. So the book in the basement is not it unless Kevin Feige was just like “pfft Marvel tv” like he does. Others have predicted that it could be the Book of (insert villain). The library at Kamar Taj showed many books not explaining that any one of them were Books of Somebody. So take it that Agatha really is an old school witch with a book of spells and a cauldron but however she came to have that book means she seemingly could be messing with the multiverse more than she knows.
