The recently released episode of WandaVision has no doubt accelerated the story by unraveling many mysteries, such as how Monica got into Westview’s pseudo-reality, who was the beekeeper at the end of Episode 2, and many more. But in the process, it has raised some pretty mind-boggling puzzles that have left viewers looking for some urgent answers again. With the series now finally making its way into the MCU world well, the tension is excruciating. The following article contains SPOILERS from WandaVision Episode 4, proceed only after viewing it.
People outside of Westview have forgotten that it exists in WandaVision
Wanda created this pseudo-reality out of her grief, and it’s hard to believe she would do her best to erase Westview’s existence. Someone has gone to great lengths to ensure that Wanda’s bogus reality continues to function without a hitch, leaving all the relatives, friends and associates of the people trapped in Westview forgetting that they ever existed, so no one knocks or raises suspicion. In fact, people have forgotten that there is a town called Westview. Who did this?
The ancient radiation around Westview
Darcy discovers CBMR, i.e. cosmic microwave background radiation, in the energy field around the city. It is debris radiation produced during the big bang that created the universe. If Wanda is really the one behind it, how on earth could she project an energy that is millions of years older to her?
Who is Agnes?
Like S.W.O.R.D. now linking the real identities of the characters in Wanda’s sitcom land to their IDs, we only see the photo of Agnes without an ID. This means she is not a resident of the city and an outsider. By now it’s clear she’s the witch, Agatha Harkness (look at her brooch, folks!), So the real question is why is she in Westview?
We may have yet to see SWORD discover its real identity, but it is indeed suspicious that they have the real names of all the characters we see after Dottie is introduced, but neither her photo nor her ID card has yet to land on the board.
Why the hexagonal shapes?
This is also one of the questions that has stunned Officer Jimmy Woo. Why is there an abundance of hexagons on the show, from the opening titles to even the earring that Monica wore in episode 3? Is it an indication that AIM is the one behind everything or that it is someone sinister?
Why did the helicopter show up in color, but the SWORD agent didn’t?
Even the SWORD agent went black and white when he entered Wanda, but for some mysterious reason, the former-drone-now-toy helicopter retained its red-yellow color. Why?
Why does the fake reality continuously change time periods?
Darcy expresses what we are already baffled about: why is it a sitcom, why is there a wavelength of the broadcast (is anyone else watching it too?), And most importantly: why does fake reality jump from one decade to another? There is only one good reason for this strange anomaly.
Someone is censoring the broadcast
While keeping an eye on what’s going on in the fake world behind the breach, Darcy and Jimmy find that every time reality invades Westview, the broadcast is censored and the scenes deleted. Like Jimmy who contacts Wanda over the radio and what happened between Wanda and Monica has been strangely removed. Since this is all happening in real time and Wanda is clearly shaken after each meeting, the logical conclusion would be that someone is censoring the broadcast. But who is this “someone”?
And of course the biggest question that remains, as Jimmy aptly puts it, is “who” made “a sitcom starring two Avengers?” It could be Wanda, it could be a second party, or both. We can only wait for Episode 5 to arrive with more answers. Meanwhile, you can get the latest installment of WandaVision only stream on the official Disney + app.
