WandaVision: Episode 2

Episode 2
Wanda and Vision prepare a magic skit for the town’s Talent Show to better fit in at Westview. She befriends neighbor Geraldine (Teyonah Parris) and tries to win the approval of queen bee of suburbia, Dottie Jones (Emma Caulfield Ford), but a freak accident with a radio calling out her name and asking who is doing “this” to her ends up with bloody hands. Earlier that day, Wanda finds a toy helicopter in the front yard, its red/yellow motif sticking out like a sore thumb in the predominantly black and white environment. Vision tries some chewing gum at the boys’ neighborhood watch meeting, causing his inner mechanism to malfunction. Seemingly drunk, he unwittingly reveals his abilities at the talent show, but is deflected and hidden by Wanda’s own powers. As they get home, Wanda grows a baby bump out of nowhere. The two hear a noise outside and find a beekeeper in white emerging from a manhole. Wanda says NO and rewinds to the baby bump moment, as they start to transition from black and white to full color.

WandaVision: Episode 1

Episode 1
Newlyweds Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) move to a nice suburban home. He now works for a computational company, touted by his colleagues as responsible for 300% increase in productivity. They liken him to a machine that gets the job done quickly. He vehemently disagrees instead of taking it as a compliment. The two prepare for an event marked with a heart on their calendar, not really knowing what it is. She thinks it’s their anniversary, but he later discovers that it’s a dinner date at their home with his boss and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Hart. With the help of nosy neighbor Agnes (Kathryn Hahn), Wanda prepares a dinner in vain but manages to pull through. As the dinner small talk begins, the couple is grilled with probing questions about their marriage, to which neither of them has any answers. As the duo celebrate the success of their first house party, the screen zooms out, revealing that the two are literally starring in a television sitcom being watched by an unknown individual holding a remote in a control room.

Enter Eva (Molly Parker), another midwife they barely know yet have no choice but to trust.
