WandaVision: Episode 6


6. All-New Halloween Spooktacular!
With Pietro now in the mix, the Maximoffs dress up for Halloween. Vision dons his own costume but uses the Neighborhood Watch as an excuse to further investigate. SWORD acting director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) wants to attack Westview to take out Wanda. Monica disagrees and is booted out of the operation. She and Jimmy disarm some SWORD agents and go on diguise while Darcy hacks SWORD's server and finds Monica's lab results, warning her that the hex is altering her cell composition. Darcy is left behind as Monica and Jimmy rendezvous with her engineer friend. Vision finds a catatonic Agnes in her car at Ellis Avenue, the border of Wanda's hex. She exclaims that he's an Avenger and that he's dead, but he doesn't remember. He heads to the force field and tries to get out as Hayward waits on the other side. As Vision starts to disintegrate, Billy senses his father's dilemma and prompts Wanda to extend the border of her hex to save him, integrating Darcy and majority of the SWORD agents into it along the way.


The sitcom world now jumps to modern times with the kids often breaking the fourth wall. We finally see that clip on the trailer where Agnes tells Vision he's dead. The twins' powers manifest with Tommy being a speedster like his uncle and Billy taking after his mother. It's also made clear that Vision cannot exist outside Westview and all clues point to him being used as an experiment, perhaps as a weapon, by SWORD. If Wanda's hex causes cells to mutate and will serve as Monica's origin story as Photon, does that mean that everyone in Westview along with the SWORD agents sucked into it will become mutants now? Reverse House of M theory confirmed, then? Seeing the border of Wanda's hex expand is very telling as to the direction this narrative seems to be taking. Pietro is also asking a lot of probing questions. Just like Agnes, he looks so damn interested in the extent of Wanda's powers. Oh well, with three episodes left, it won't be long before we find out who he really is anyway. Excited for the next episode!
