WandaVision: Episode 3


3. Now in Color
A pregnancy that should have taken months lasts barely a day. As Vision rushes to fetch the doctor for the childbirth, Geraldine drops by unannounced for a chitchat. Wanda attempts to hide her baby bump but is forced to reveal it as she prematurely goes into labor. With Geraldine’s help she gives birth to a baby boy she names Tommy, just as Vision and the doctor arrive. A few minutes later she goes into labor again and welcomes a second child, Billy. As she adores her newborn sons, she remembers her own twin Pietro, whom Geraldine tells her was killed by Ultron. As Wanda confronts her about what she just said, she notices her sword pendant. Outside the house, the neighbors try in vain to tell Vision something, but simply can’t. Just outside Westview, a breach in the sky opens through which a flying Geraldine is expelled. As she lands on a field, helicopters and patrol vans rush to the scene, revealing a perimeter set by the entrance of a small town seemingly confined in a magical bubble they are trying to penetrate.


Now in full color, as alluded to in the title, the episode revolves around Wanda’s odd pregnancy. The first half is your typical WandaVision carryover from episodes 1 and 2. The second half is where the plot gets to advance a bit as Wanda exposes Geraldine as an outsider, leading to that scene in the trailers where she ends up crash landing outside Westview. If we are to take more hints from the teasers, then she is defo part of SWORD, and those guys coming to her rescue are probably her teammates. The vibe is similar to that of SHIELD when Thor’s hammer first landed on Earth. What isn’t clear is whether she already has her powers or if this sitcom will serve as her origin story. I think we all know by now that she is Monica Rambeau, right? Another thing that’s clear is how Wanda IS manipulating this world of her own making. What’s not yet clear is whether she is under someone’s influence or going solo. The other characters also seem to be partly aware that they are just trapped in there.


“Well, yes, with all the close calls we've been having, it seems the people of Westview are always on the verge of discovering our secret.” –Wanda
