Warning: if you haven't seen the latest episode of WandaVision yet, this article contains SPOILERS so read at your own risk.

WandaVision's Episode 7 takes a little break from all the action and suspense as it gives fans a better look at the aftermath following Wanda's epic expansion of her pocket reality or as Darcy Lewis would call it — the "hex". The said incident is arguably the highlight of Episode 6 and it explores just how powerful Wanda Maximoff truly is.

Darcy's "accidental" arrival to Westview was a blessing in disguise not only for Vision but for the show's viewers as well as she's giving us a good dose of comic relief that quite frankly, we're all in desperate need of in the midst of all the chaos that is going on.

In "Breaking the Fourth Wall", we get a glimpse of what happens to Darcy and most of the S.W.O.R.D. agents who got trapped inside the hex and turned into circus performers. Vision happens to recognize Darcy from his brief escape in the previous episode but thanks to Wanda's mind-manipulating ways, the astrophysicist couldn't remember a thing.

This leaves Vision with no choice but to use his own powers to reverse the effects of Darcy being mind-controlled. Naturally, the synthezoid finds himself a trusty ally in her who can help him solve the anomaly. She later explains Vision's past and how they ended up in the position they're currently in.

And staying true to the episode's title of breaking the fourth wall, at one point during the episode, Darcy gushes over Wanda and Vision's love story and adorably references their pocket world as "WandaVision" which of course is the show's actual title and I don't think it can get any more meta than that.

By no means was that moment mind-blowing but Darcy being able to "fangirl" for a moment inside Wanda's reality was still a nice added touch. And I can't believe I'm saying this, but I've grown to appreciate the character that I never cared for in the Thor franchise.
