Episode 8 gave us flashbacks of the past of Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), who as in the comics was one of Salem’s witches in 1693 – historically the time of the town’s infamous trials, but in this case more of an all-out Witch World War. We then learn that her presence in Westview is far from a coincidence, but that sensing fellow-witch Wanda’s powers at work, she wanted to see what the heck was going on.
Ultimately, this leads us to the revelation that the town’s picture perfect illusion was created by a grief-stricken Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) unleashing her powers after Vision’s death and the result being an alternative universe based on the sit-coms that had comforted her in the past – as a child in war torn Sokovia, and then as a patient in HYDRA’s Infinity Stone experiments. While a minor detail compared to some, this also explains the evolving timeline of shows WandaVision pays homage to.
It also means that Vision (Paul Bettany) is still very much dead, and that despite Wanda’s best efforts, his body is being held at S.W.O.R.D. headquarters – where they’re busy trying to resurrect him with who-knows-what in mind. What this means for the WandaVision finale is unclear, but it could be WandaVision comes to a head with Wanda vs Vision, some corners of the internet are speculating!
