WandaVision has been promising since the show's inception and it has no plans on stopping as it brings the latest episode on our screen with a jam-packed half-hour of weirdness, questions, answers, then more questions.
The weeklycanon series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe getting more Marvel than it used to be as it continues to unravel what is happening inside of Westview and how to connect the trail of dots each episode has been giving. What used to be trails of dots are now lines leading to the final half of the series.
Starring Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda and Paul Bettany's Vision, as their pilot episode song says, "a newlywed couple just moved into town, a regular husband and wife," except they are not just a regular couple, they're an extraordinary couple just wanting to have a quiet and happy life, except the circumstances are not that simple as Vision's life was taken a few years back.
The series has already confirmed when exactly in the timeline is WandaVision and it is just three weeks after the events of the Avengers: Endgame. This could perfectly explain why it is Halloween in town for the most recent episode as Endgame is somewhere from September to October of 2023.
The sixth episode of WandaVision follows the family with their new addition as they go out on one of the most exciting nights for a child (and adults as well), Halloween, and contrary to what Vision kept asking the last episode, there are more kids in Westview than he expected.
It is indeed a treat but most would say that everything was just a trick.
More clues point to whoever is in charge of Westview and no, it's not all Wanda (sorry about that Monica, you seem to have gotten that part wrong) as it was explained in the most recent episode that Wanda seems to have no recollection as to what could have possibly happened to her before entering Westview.

WandaVision Episode 6 Recap Westview Perspective
The series kicks off with a very 90s vibe with the opening credits with a Malcolm In The Middle style and while it is entirely funny to see that the kids are growing up to the point of annoying their parents, just the credits scene show more than what meets the eye of how the twins are just about to be supers as their parents and their cool uncle.
We get to see Wanda in her classic comic-accurate costume where she says that she is a Sokovian Fortune Teller and boy, she looks stunning. And Vision, he dons the suit of his comic-book counterpart and claims he is a Mexican wrestler. (Nice one on the chili con carne!)
Pietro stands up and mans up taking on the mantle of the father figure for the night as Vision says he's on neighborhood watch (except he isn't) and the kids are really loving their cool uncle. Billy says that Wanda and Vision are at the point where they are not always in agreement lately.
Vision took off on his own where he gets to that real spooky part of the town where the people seem to be glitching on their own.
There goes the woman who cannot put up the sheets and he reached that point where everyone was just on pause. When Vision realized that they would not be able to recognize him, he transforms into Vision we all know and flew up in the sky to get a bird's eye view.
Vision sees the car of Agnes heading to nowhere and it was clearly a surprise seeing Agnes like that. When Vision puts Agnes to her consciousness, Agnes clearly recognized him as one of the Avengers and asked him if he is there to help them, Vision has no recollection of the past making Agnes assume that she is dead because Vision is dead.
Still, in confusion, Vision brings Agnes back to her usual self and proceeded to his own quest for truth.
On the other hand, Wanda and the kids with their uncle Pietro goes on trick or treating in the neighborhood. Wanda confirmed with Herb that Vision is not on duty and still opted to stay with her kids for the night leaving Vision in whatever quest he is on.
Wanda keeps asking Pietro questions to confirm his identity and when he mentioned that he remembers dying on the streets and the next thing he knew, Wanda was calling him, the answer seems enough for Wanda to fully accept that he is Pietro.
It seems that the kids have finally gotten their powers with Tommy inheriting the powers of his uncle Pietro and Billy getting Vision's senses and Wanda's telepathy and telekinesis, even mimicking a scene of Wanda stopping the runners in the family.
Billy heard Vision asking for help and immediately calls his mom's attention. Upon learning what happened to Vision, Wanda went berserk with red eyes and expanded Westview to recover Vision and suck in the whole base of SWORD just outside the borders turning it into a circus.
WandaVision Episode 6 Recap SWORD Perspective
Director Hayward is not happy, not at all. Hayward seems to want to eliminate Wanda at all costs and he seems to be willing to do whatever it takes to get that done. Now with Monica not agreeing with him, and Jimmy and Darcy supporting Monica, he banishes them into the base. (Not a cool way to say thanks to those who gave you the basic info you need, director.)
Monica claims that if Wanda is the problem, she has to be the solution. So, upon being banished, they plot a plan to re-enter Westview. The three found out that Hayward has been tracking Vision all this time and he has not shared it with the team.
Darcy claims that Monica cannot re-enter as going through the Hex altered her molecules. Still, Monica was firm so Darcy just went on to stay on the base. Monia and Jimmy proceed and Darcy was just at the right moment to see Vision going through the barrier.
Vision, clearly struggling, asks for help from the people of Westview but SWORD seems to do nothing at all, even stopping Darcy and tying her up on a car, who commands them to help Vision as he is deteriorating. Vision's fate outside of Westview seems ill as he is drawn to the town.
The borders of the Hex started to expand and sucked the base in making it a circus and the soldiers clowns. Hayward manages to escape, so did Monica and Jimmy. Darcy, however, gets sucked into the Hex and it wasn't shown what happened to her.
WandaVision Episode 7 Theories and What to Expect
Since most of what is on the trailers have been seen, on the third to the last episode of WandaVision, it seems that answers are now manifesting themselves, along with new questions yet to be answered along the way.
There is more to Wanda's powers and she is definitely not pulling all the strings. When Pietro asked her how did she create the town, Wanda said all she felt was being alone and nothingness.
It is a clear showing that there is someone else in control, either making use of Wanda's powers to create the town, or altered her memories so she would not remember.
Pietro seems odd throughout the show. In the Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pietro was more serious, more focused, while in WandaVision, he's what his nephews call him, a man-child. Though it is fun to see a whole new side of Pietro as he is recast as the Pietro from the X-Men, there's more to his character than what we all expected.
Wanda herself seems to be confused as to who he is to the point where she asks questions from their childhood to confirm that he really is Pietro, and yes, he was dodging all those questions ever since.
He only managed to get Wanda's trust when he told her that he remembers that he died on the streets and then nothing before Wanda called for him.
When Wanda's under stress, she seems to subconsciously call people she trusts. This was shown in previous episodes when she needed help in the kitchen when she needed help with the kids, she seems to have been calling Agnes even when she is not aware of it.
In their recent fight, when Vision was clearly doubting Wanda, she might have called for Pietro unknowingly which is why mid-fight, he arrived.
The people in Westview also seems to be aware of everything but is not asking for help since, as claimed by Agnes, Wanda would not let them even think of leaving town. Agnes was in a plea for Vision's help and she was really dropping the bombs as she revealed to Vision that he is already dead.
Moreover, the people in Westview seems to have been glitching on their own, pausing mid-action. Does this mean that they are not within the purview of Wanda's powers? Or were they put on a pause like in shows?
Tommy and Billy are now manifesting their powers and they are growing up to be the versions of their mother and uncle. Tommy got the speed of Quicksilver and Billy got Wanda's powers. This leads to fans speculating that the two are now being honed to be part of the Young Avengers as Speed and Wiccan.
Tommy as Speed and Billy as Wiccan dates back to the comics where their genes have not failed them and gave them the awesome powers from their lineage of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.
But could the devil be in the details? When Pietro called the twins, he addressed them as "demon spawns." Could this mean that they really are fragments of Mephisto's soul? Is the demon really coming into the series?
Wanda's powers have been greater ever since her introduction to the MCU and her powers clearly expand as she took over the base of SWORD and more outside of Westview. Could Wanda be doing all these or is someone else giving her the amplification that she needs?
Also, what is wrong with Hayward and what does he have against Wanda? Hayward seems kind of off from the beginning and fans are now starting to believe that he is not an ally. He clearly sees Wanda as a terrorist and he wants to banish her from existence. Does Hayward have something against Wanda?
Theories suggest that Hayward could be pulling the strings from the outside, some even suggest that he is Ralph, the husband of Agnes who has never appeared because if it was Hayward, he's outside of Westview.
Another theory suggests that Hayward could be tied to Hydra or some evil group in the MCU that plans to take down the heroes one by one. With Wanda being one of the strongest, if not the strongest, then they are taking her down first.
Also, Wanda seems to have known Hayward before Westview in their encounter in Episode 5, could it be that they have already met?
And Darcy, poor Darcy. She hasn't been treated well since she arrived at SWORD. With Darcy getting sucked into the Hex, it is possible that she would be having an interaction with Wanda. With her investment in the sitcoms, it would be interesting to see how Darcy would play out in the sitcom.
Then, could Monica be super? In her blood sample, it was shown that because she went through the border of the Hex twice, her body becomes altered at the molecular level. Could this be the origin of her powers? And if so, what would be the complete aftereffect of her exposure? If she gets back in the Hex, would her powers grow as well?
Lastly, what will happen to Vision? Is he facing death the second time around? Could he really be able to get out of Westview? It seems that his body and consciousness is drawn from inside the town, possibly with Wanda's. We saw Vision fall to his knees and onto the ground? How will he be able to come back to life?
