WandaVision's second episode was home to several fun moments and overall, it was a pretty solid entry but a lot of buzz is coming from the episode's intriguing closing moments that left us with a huge cliffhanger, and an eerie one at that. Set in the 1960s, it features Wanda and Vision getting their first true taste of that suburban life and having to deal with the "normal" people in their neighborhood. Towards the end of the said episode, an enigmatic individual who was wearing a beekeeper costume suddenly surfaced seemingly from out of nowhere.

It's quite hard to tell whether it's a man or a woman but as the person emerged from the sewer, Wanda noticeably felt a sense of panic and by looks the looks of it. she has a good idea of what was going on and who exactly the person in the beekeeper costume was. Obviously threatened, Maximoff quickly rewound the "episode" and picked up where she and Vision left off and the said episode would get a more ideal ending with Wanda getting pregnant and the series' black and white aesthetic suddenly getting color.

Who exactly is the mysterious beekeeper in WandaVision?

You may not have noticed it due to the episode's black and white treatment but the S.W.O.R.D. symbol can be seen at the back of the unidentified beekeeper's uniform. Of course, it's safe to assume that the person who emerged from out of nowhere was an agent of the Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Department and for some reason, he or she was able to enter Wanda's pocket reality.

One interesting theory also suggests that the person is actually a member of the Advanced Idea Mechanics or A.I.M. To those who don't remember, it's the villainous organization led by Aldrich Killian, the main villain of Iron Man 3. In the comics, they're known for wearing suits similar to a beekeeper's, and the organization's official symbol also resembles a beehive.

However, as interesting as it may sound, that theory still begs the question: what does A.I.M. have to do with Maximoff, Vision, and their new reality? And why is the group only resurfacing now after the events of the third Iron Man film? For now, the best bet is to just stick to the S.W.O.R.D. theory as that one makes more sense.

It's also worth noting that the mysterious S.W.O.R.D. agent from the previous episode still has possession of the remote control, hinting that she has some sort of command in Wanda's altered reality. Honestly, everything is still a blur right now, and hopefully, the upcoming third episode answers a lot of our questions.

The official synopsis of WandaVision reads:

Marvel Studios' WandaVision blends the style of classic sitcoms with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany)—two super-powered beings living their ideal suburban lives—begin to suspect that everything is not as it seems.
