Spoiler

I'm pretty convinced, and have been from day 1, that "Pietro" is a red herring / imposter. And I think Wanda knows, a lot of her lines with him were about "hey remember when" type of stuff, almost quizzing him. I think he'll be the "big bad" here, in the end. 

Agnes is in on it too, I'm convinced. Her scene in the car... I'm sure she was faking it. The others that were trapped away from Wanda were not talking, or moving... she was repeating stuff over and over... She wanted Vision to leave because she knew it would kill him. She also snapped back into her character really fast as if nothing happened... again, despite her being far from Wanda. So unlike everyone else in the town.

Wanda, I still don't think is totally in control of her powers, despite the fact they evidently grew today. There was the whole thing with the white spots in the scene were traced in a weird graphic line thing... and I think  it symbolizes her world was fragile and the illusion was coming undone quickly. She's struggling to maintain the illusion but she knows, and Vision knows and everyone seems to know that it's exactly that and she;s struggling to keep believing it herself. I think she made a "deal with the devil" to live in this world. She explicitly said she can't bring back the dead, which is why I'm sure there's something else more nefarious at work here that brought Vision back, at a cost to her. One cost, evidently, that he only stays alive as long as he is inside the Hex.

Just regarding Episode 6.

WandaVision Ep 6

  Hide contents

An unspectacular but still gripping episode. The lady putting up the decorations with a tear running down her cheek was chilling, and Vision's prime instinct to help the people trapped even at the cost of his existence was heart-breaking.

Meanwhile, next week is 2000s sitcoms right? I'm putting money on Darcy becoming a down-on-her-luck waitress now she's been brought into the hex.

 

Spoiler

Technically they actually skipped the '90s outright, as Malcolm in the Middle premiered in 2000. I have to assume that Modern Family/the wave of mockumentary sitcoms is going to be the 2010s rep, who knows what else will be there given there are two episodes left.

I think it's pretty clear Agnes was lying in wait for Vision to convince him to attempt to leave and triggering Wanda expanded the Hex even further. Maybe it's nefarious, but maybe she's trying to be protective of them from an even more evil force at play. Probably fake Pietro? Or is he just there to demonstrate how unstable and fragile the illusion is?

Also, yeah, they basically blew past the 90s era of sitcoms about nothing (which makes sense, there were plenty of sitcoms about family life in the 90s but they basically just carries over 80s stylings until Everybody Loves Raymond came along). I think the only sitcom zeitgeist left are the mockumentaries. Which probably leaves 2 episodes after which aren't parts of the show in the Hex but instead work to wrap things up.

Regarding sitcom decades covered in recent episodes

Spoiler

I'd assumed episode 5 started 80s and transitioned to 90s with the kids aging and the office getting internet. Then episode 6 covered late 90s to mid 2000 with the movies being shown at the cinema being The Parent Trap (1998) and The Incredibles(2004)

Once they tackle the mockumentary style in the next episode, clearly the only thing left is the TV show of today's era....the reboot!

Teyonah Parris is teasing that people will have their minds blown when the "aerospace engineer" is revealed on WandaVision. Paul Bettany's also saying that he got to work with someone on the show that he's been wanting to work with his whole career.

Spoilers/speculation:

Spoiler

Twitter seems to think this means Reed Richards and for whatever reason, John Krasinski as Reed. Hard pass. Also, I don't think Paul Bettany's been wanting to work with John Krasinski his "whole career", but what do I know?

Speculation on the aerospace engineer and the comment by Bettany doesn't have to go hand-in-hand in this case. Bettany made that comment weeks before the aerospace engineer thing was even mentioned on the show.

But, in the end, I think Teyonah is just trolling, especially if you've seen today's episode:

Spoiler

There is no reveal for the engineer, it's presented to Monica by a throwaway military officer who is loyal to Monica (and I guess her mother too?).

This week's commercial is interesting if you follow the comics:

Spoiler

"Nexus beings" are people who are the same in every multiverse. Who monitors these people? TVA (Time Variance Authority, as seen in the Loki trailer). Who else are Nexus beings? The Vision. Jean Grey... oh, and Kang the Conqueror.

Also, there's a post credits scene(!):

Spoiler

I'm almost positive Evan Peters isn't MCU or Fox Quicksilver, or any combination of the two. He's the villain who is working with Agatha (or one of them is working for the other). Wanda's line to the kids: "Don't believe anything that man says. He is NOT your Uncle." On the surface, it's just yet another nod to the audience that Wanda knows what's going on here, that's not the Pietro she knows. But I think that's some pretty heavy foreshadowing, personally. And combined with that post credits scene, you can kind of connect the dots as to why he's there all of a sudden. Of course I could be wrong, but it's fun waiting a week to see if I'm right or not.

Oh, and a particular scene towards the end:

Spoiler

The fly and the rabbit. Is that Tommy & Billy, transformed by Agatha? Or... is the fly on the wall actually Mephisto?

I just started it and I'm not fully sure what show is being spoofed this episode.

Spoiler

When the milk changed to a carton and had a missing kid on it for some reason I thought it was Seven from Married with Children in the most obscure joke in the history of TV

Mockumentary shows like Modern Family and The Office.

So is Fake!Pietro Señor Scratchy/Nicholas Scratch? 

Also, it was Agatha all along doodoodoo

So it was definitely something I knew was coming but still ever so satisfying to see get revealed to the audience. Lot to still speculate about for next week, which is great.

I sadly got spoiled for a general sense of the two biggest developments because like a damn fool I was on Twitter past midnight and the trending topics got me, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut

Spoiler

the Agatha All Along opening credits is sure to go down as one of my favorite TV moments of the year. Fucking hilarious.

On the bigger picture, I wasn't that into the episode because I don't think they really had a good handle on the mockumentary style. To some extent that's to be expected, I guess, the whole sitcom side of the show has been gradually unraveling in the plot itself, but it does feel to me like the more they get into the meat of the plot the more the unique charm of the early going waned.

Still, that whole part of it feels like it's basically done and we're going to get into just plot/MCU stuff for the rest, that's probably for the best. Like, I don't bother with theorycrafting or even watching clips of what's to come, but there's nowhere left to go with sitcom history, particularly through the lens of the family sitcom which is what these all have been (with the asterisk that this week clearly has The Office in mind nearly as much as it has Modern Family). Unless there's something I'm blanking on the next big family sitcom that defines an era of that medium hasn't really been made yet.

Spoiler

I don't think it's the kids. I think the fly idea is interesting, but the bunny was in the episode a few times before the kids were at her place, and even being held by one of them so... 

 

Kind of a meh episode, but that's to be expected at some point. Didn't make it any less interesting overall, as it just sets up what's to come. But I didn't feel it was particularly well structured as a cohesive episode. 

Spoiler

I'm anticipating the kids to age up again sooner rather than later. Which will be much more interesting... I think now that the sitcom stuff is waning, there's less of a need to have these pre-teens here. 

Agatha was an expected reveal. I assume Evan Peters is Mephisto, but I'm curious to see where they go with is exactly.

I enjoy the Darcy character a lot, but the stuff with her and Vision was really useless overall in this episode and it really disrupted the flow of everything... Cohesion was a big problem this episode, which is not something I've been able to complain a lot about. They've managed to really blend the two clear themes of the show (with the inside the Hex v Outside of it stuff)... but it just did not work here at all. 

I assume Vision dies in the end... which is sad... but where can they go with him if he can't leave the hex?

I used to be a fan of the Netflix model of "Dump the whole season at once"...but now I kinda prefer the once-a-week model.  I binged both seasons of Titans last weekend and I can't even remember how S2 ended.  I can still remember details of E1 of WandaVision.  I do remember reading somewhere that a problem with the binge model is less retention.

Somehow I can still remember all of Tiger King though

I usually hate watching TV this way when I'm really invested in a show/franchise/whatever, but this is working for me for some reason. Maybe it's because I love Marvel, I don't know. I appreciate that not everything they release is a week-to-week format, though. The Legends recap and the 616 docuseries, for example.

It also benefits them as well, since 2021 is poised to have new Marvel content every week of the year if things continue like this, especially with the announcement of the Assembled documentary (pretty much the Disney Gallery version for the MCU shows). It appears that'll air a week after each show's finale, then the next week is the premiere of a new show.

Are Black Widow, Shang Chi and Eternals going to be one offs or are they dumping a whole season in a day?  Either way, I get the model, make people pay for Disney+ year round and I do kind of prefer the wait because it builds anticipation.  Some shows are better with the dump and binge method, some are better weekly, like I would hate something like Archer being released once per week.

Pretty sure those are movies, that aren't planning on going on Disney+ right away if I am not mistaken.

Yea, Black Widow, Shang Chi and The Eternals are movies still slated for theatrical release.  If that happens...who knows
