WandaVision Episode 7 Title Card Breaking The Fourth Wall The Office Inspired Intro

This week's episode is a tribute to the many mockumentary-style sitcoms of the 2000s, most notably The Office, featuring interviews with the characters and a similar camera style to what is found on those shows.

We see Wanda and Vision separated in this episode and trying to deal with what happened in the last episode.

Wanda is tired and just wants to be left alone, leading to Agnes watching the twins while she rests alone in her house. She also keeps trying to control various elements of her world becoming unstable, and rapidly changing their time period.

Vision in the meantime is at the Circus on the edge of the town of Westview that used to be the SWORD camp. Still in his original form, he is mistaken for a clown and told to take part in the next show.

Outside the hex we see SWORD regrouping for a new attack after setting up a new base further from the barrier.

Monica Rambeau and Jimmy Woo reach their aerospace engineer, who despite much internet speculation on their identity ended up not being a significant preexisting Marvel character like Reed Richards. They grant Monica the use of a high-tech space rover to use to safely venture into the barrier with.

As she attempts to pass through in the rover, it faces resistants and begins to be transformed by its powers, forcing her to quickly escape before the rover is ejected from the barrier, having been half transformed into a normal truck.

Despite knowing the risks, she enters the barrier unprotected.

Monica finally reaches Wanda, who once again attacks her with her powers, but this time she is able to defend herself with her own newly gained powers, which allow her to escape Wanda's control.

She attempts to reason with Wanda and get her to understand that she needs to let this world, and potentially Vision, go.

This is interrupted when Agnes arrives and takes Wanda into her house to protect her.

Wanda is confused as her kids are nowhere to be found, leading Agnes to tell her that they are playing in the basement. When Wanda ventures in the basement though she does not find them, but instead a vine-covered mysterious room.

It is here where Agnes reveals herself as Agatha Harkness, a witch who has been controlling many of the events of the series so far to manipulate Wanda, including Pietro's arrival and faking her encounter with Vision freed from Wanda's influence, all revealed through a musical montage ranging different events through the series.

Agatha apparently appeared just prior to first entering Wanda's house, transforming herself from a witch into a normal person from the time period.

She then continued to control events each decade in a way that controlled the narrative of both Wanda and Vision.

The exact ramifications of this are left ambiguous as Agatha takes control of Wanda. How much has she controlled? Is she the reason Wanda made the Hex? And importantly, where are Billy and Tommy? These are all left unanswered for a future episode.

Monica Rambeau and Pietro WandaVision Post Credits Scene Episode 7

But for the first time, this is not the end, as we got a post-credits sequence. While admittedly short, it does hold something of a major reveal. In it Monica arrives at Agnes's house and begins to inspect it, eventually venturing to look down into the basement from an outside entrance. Just when she gets her first glimpse at the vines, she is suddenly interrupted by Pietro (or whatever his real name is) and the episode actually ends.

The show keeps building small reveals while leaving the main mysteries unsolved, which should hopefully make for an epic conclusion where we finally learn what has been happening this whole time, and how it will change what comes next for the MCU.
