WandaVision: Episode 9

9. The Series Finale
The showdown between Wanda and Agnes turns into a royal rumble with the arrival of both Vision and White Vision. As Agnes summons the Darkhold and frees the people of Westview from Wanda’s grip, she reasons with her to let them go. Vision talks White Vision out of their fight and restores his memories via back-up data. Hayward’s agents storm the town but are held back by the twins. Monica breaks out of fake Pietro’s house as she frees him from Agnes’ magic. As the hex starts to recede, Wanda fully transforms into the Scarlet Witch to subdue Agatha who still wants all her powers. Agatha is then hexed to play the role of the nosy neighbor for life. The family returns home, and the kids are “put to bed” as Wanda bids Vision farewell. As reality is restored, Wanda says goodbye to Monica, who is led to an empty theater by a Skrull disguised as an FBI agent. Wanda leaves Westview and settles alone in an alpine cabin somewhere. As she magically flips through the pages of the Darkhold, she hears the voice of her twins crying out for help.

Stay put for the mid and end credits. Kudos to Paul Bettany for the alpha level trolling. No Mephisto. No Nightmare. No Quicksilver. No Magneto. No Dr. Strange. No Arcanna Jones. I guess the downside of having a super-hyped once a week TV show in the age of social media is that people are thinking way too far ahead. From the way the end credits scene turned out, it looks like that Mephisto subplot is still in the running. The question is when? The title of this episode makes it clear that there will be no Season 2. Or perhaps that is going to be the main plot of Dr. Strange 2? In an effort to bring her twins to life for good via the Darkhold, Wanda ends up unleashing whatever it is that she would need the help of the Sorcerer Supreme for. Exciting. We obviously want more. In the end, WandaVision is an extended origin story that could have been a movie, but this format is good enough as it is. And nominate Olsen for an Emmy at least. Monica, we will probably see next in Secret Invasion. Agnes, well, at least she’s not dead.

“The Scarlet Witch is not born, she is forged. She has no coven, no need for incantation. Your power exceeds that of the Sorcerer Supreme. It's your destiny to destroy the world.” –Agatha Harkness
