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 5 finally answered arguably the biggest question on every Marvel fan's mind since its debut: how exactly is Vision still alive? Of course, we all saw him die at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, and it's crystal clear that the synthezoid has fallen to his tragic demise.

It's safe to assume that Wanda created an illusion of Vision that would fit her new pocket reality from scratch but the thing is, it's already been revealed in Episode 4 that "almost" every person residing in Westview are actual people that have undergone Wanda's mind control. That means that Vision's body, even though he's already lifeless, is also in Westview.

Let us break it down for you. Episode 5 leads to the shocking revelation that Wanda actually stole Vision's corpse in S.W.O.R.D.'s facility just nine days before she created her trippy pocket reality. Evidence of Wanda breaking into the organization's facility was presented by Tyler Hayward himself through a surveillance video.

Now, as to how exactly Wanda brought him back to life, it's still quite unclear but it's safe to assume that Wanda created a new consciousness for Vision which explains why the synthezoid appears to have no recollection of his past and is clueless all the time.

This raises a lot of questions but arguably the biggest of them all is, why was Vision's body with S.W.O.R.D.? One would think that after his death, the synthezoid's corpse would've been disposed of by the Avengers following Thanos' snap or even turned over to Stark Industries but apparently, that's not the case.

Obviously, it wasn't explained in Avengers: Endgame and it has now become a huge mystery. Was S.W.O.R.D. trying to revive him without the use of the mind stone? Man, things are getting extremely intriguing as WandaVision approaches its finale and I just can't understand how this show keeps getting better one episode after the other. If you're still not invested, I don't know anymore.


WandaVision's Episode 5 is now streaming on Disney+.
