How it all begins | WandaVision Review

Many of the questions we have asked ourselves in recent weeks will finally be answered. In fact, the bet is practically a whole flashback how it all began. Or rather, how it all began but from the point of view of S.W.O.R.D.

The sit-com cut is pushed aside, leading the viewer to come to terms with a story being told. slightly differently. The bright colors, the comic sketches, the jokes with the applause and the laughter in the background, are replaced by the reality.

The flashback that makes up the entire episode answers many questions, but creates just as many. While it lends a kind of background to the series, enriching the story with interesting answers, it also lays the foundation for far more important questions: who is the real villain?

Monica Rambeau

In this episode we enter right into the heart of the season. Monica Rambeau, played by Teyonah Parris, is clearly a member of the SWORD team, joined by Jimmy Woo e Darcy Lewis, respectively interpreted by Randall Park e Kat Dennings. The three carry out careful investigations into the fictional world of Wanda and Vision, slowly discovering how much greater than their expectations is what lies behind the “wall” of the town of Westview.

The story of Monica Rambeau is also in-depth. Having met as a child Carol Danvers, discovering how the universe is much larger and more complex than she could think, little Monica Rambeau decides to follow in her mother’s footsteps: she enlists and manages to set foot in the SWORD team

We focus on her for almost half the episode, finding her in the exact moment in which the snap of Tony Stark gives her life again. Yet another very successful connection with the facts of Endgame, definitively sanctioning the opening of the 4th phase of the MCU.

Is Wanda the real Villain? | WandaVision Review

As the episode progresses, the viewer realizes that they take the same point of view as the SWORD and the FBI agent. We are unaware of everything, and all that remains is to connect the dots to understand the thread of the discussion.

Thanks to the intervention of Darcy Lewis (astrophysicist and assistant to Jane Foster in Thor e Thor: The Dark World), we find that the area is surrounded by a energy field that keeps the outside world out. Only with the recognition of a broadcast frequency that Dr. Lewis channels into an old television do we finally get to see them: Wanda and Vision.

The amazement to discover that what they are seeing is a real sitcom makes us laugh at them, even though we are aware that we, like Darcy, Jimmy Woo and SWORD, still have no idea what this really means. whole staging.

The cooperation between Monica, Jimmy and Darcy brings with it many discoveries, but also what seems to be the only certain truth: the real villain of the story seems to be Wanda.

But be careful, it is true that Wanda gives the feeling of commanding the fictional reality in which she imprisoned all the inhabitants of Westview, but another aspect also emerges: what if behind all this there was another entity of the Marvel universe to manipulate it ?

To support the thesis, there are all those “Cuts” scenes that are not shown, as if to mean that someone who has not yet been mentioned to hold the reins of the story in hand.

The fourth episode certainly staged a clear change of perspective on the series and on the idea made up to now of the two protagonists: Wanda and Visione.

Almost halfway through the season, it was unthinkable to believe that the sit-com theater was going to last a long time, without letting anything out definitely. darker and more enigmatic.

The few certainties acquired with this episode, however, do not yet serve to precisely outline the trend of a series that is reserving us one twist after another.
