The answers lie on returning MCU character Darcy Lewis (played by Kat Dennings) who was last seen in Thor: The Dark World. Apparently, S.W.O.R.D. got the services of the now-astrophysicist to find out what exactly is happening in Westview.

Episode 4 pretty much confirms that Westview is an actual town populated by 3,000-something people but for some strange reason, it went "missing" all of a sudden. According to Darcy, there's a colossal amount of CMBR or Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation inside the energy field Wanda has created.

She later brings out her physio-scope and asks for a retro bubble-screen television. Darcy then explains: "My equipment registered an extremely high level of CMBR. Entwined was a broadcast frequency. So I had your goons pick me up a sweet vintage TV, and when I plug this bad boy in, voilá, sound, and picture."

Quite frankly, the episode is all science mumbo jumbo from start to finish but to put it simply, Wanda could somehow be extracting power from the Infinity stones, specifically the mind stone which may have awakened her "hidden" powers. As for the broadcast frequency, it's safe to assume that it has something to do with Vision considering he's basically a machine.

New episodes of WandaVision air weekly on Disney+.
