Disney+, with the help of Marvel Studios, took over Fridays in 2021 with their hit series Wandavision. Taking cues and inspiration from influential sitcoms throughout different decades of television, each praiseworthy episode provides fans with excitement and mystery as well as a growing list of jokes, questions, theories and overall Marvel Cinematic Universe implications. The formerly deceased Avenger, Vision, is an integral part of the show’s storyline. Vision is stuck in Wanda’s reality-shifting playground set in Westview, New Jersey where every action exhibited is observed with great detail by outsiders. 

The technical work and production on this show have been quite spectacular. Attention to detail is obvious, from the theme songs to the set designs, and the ability to stay true to each decade of sitcoms is nothing short of remarkable. In this sense, Wandavision has accomplished a unique feat that separates it from any other TV show. It manages to be fun, action-packed, and most importantly, entertaining. Every episode ends just at the right time. Fans are constantly frustrated because they are dying to learn more and cannot wait for the next episode.

By far the most enjoyable part of Wandavision has been seeing everyone’s theories after each episode. Following episode six, however, it seems like many of the popular theories have been challenged in interesting ways. One of these regards this iteration of Quicksilver, and his true purpose. Upon first seeing his cameo in episode five, fans were shocked to see that he arrived via multiverse from the 20th Century Fox X-Men Universe. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Something is certainly up with Quicksilver, and many believe he has ulterior motives, perhaps in relation to Billy and Tommy’s powers. Quicksilver’s altered memory of events that he and Wanda should remember together is peculiar in its own right, as is his interesting obsession with themes of Hell. Could Quicksilver be the theorized villain Mephisto? The plot takes another interesting turn when Wanda and Vision’s neighbor, Agnes, is “awakened” by Vision and seems to be just like every other kidnapped resident of Westview. Is there a chance she actually isn’t the perceived comic book character, Agatha Harkness, a mentor of Wanda and a fellow witch? 

Luckily for fans, even though we are two-thirds of the way through the season episode-wise, we have only made it halfway through in terms of run time. The last three episodes are rumored to be an hour-long instead of 30 minutes, which means there is much more to learn. Overall, Wandavision is a blast and if you are a fan of the MCU, then this is a must-watch.
