'WandaVision' Episode 6 Review: A Halloween-themed doozy affair with a major throwback to the comic costumes
'WandaVision' is more than just a quirky series. It's Wanda's world and she's ruling it
Spoilers for 'WandaVision' Episode 6
It was yet another scintillating episode of the hit Marvel series and as it inches to a close, the Disney+ show manages to toss up quite a few surprises. This time in the form of a Halloween episode, except, what is supposed to be trick and treat, was all mind-numbing tricks, some major scares and a massive cliffhanger to end things. Bordering between a major throwback comic costumes to some startling reveals, 'WandaVision' is more than just a quirky series. It's Wanda's world and she's ruling it.
For starters, all's not well in the WandaVision residence. Especially not after a seemingly dead Pietro (Evan Peters) is alive, zoomin' and kickin'. Paul Bettany's Vision knows things aren't right in Westview. And on a supposedly-fun Halloween day, he explores the town and comes to the edge to the town only to find himself dying the minute he steps out of Wanda's (Elizabeth Olsen) forcefield. Logically, it does make sense as he's already dead. Pity the Avenger has no idea he was a hero and clearly, he doesn't know he's dead.
Now he knows. And Wanda just goes on warpath as she sucks everyone into the expanded Westview. They're all a part of Wanda's world now and there's no escaping it. Things are still a bit confusing from the show. For starters, Wanda still sees visions of her dead brother who says all he did was respond to her call. He knows a lot more too. He knew Vision was dead and by the end of the episode, Wanda has all but hinted she didn't resurrect her long-lost brother.
And, since nothing about the show is surprising anymore, the two twin children—Billy and Tommy are in their early teenage period and they have superpowers. One's fast (No surprises there again) and the other has telekinesis, the same abilities Pietro and Wanda have. Episode 6 is a doozy. It's fast, scratch that. It's whirlwind and leaves a lot unanswered. There is clearly a divison in SWORD and Josh Stamberg's Tyler Hayward is afar cry from Nick Fury.
Quite simply, SWORD isn't what it is. Wanda is "apparently" in troube as per Monica Rambeau's (Teyonah Parris) prognosis, and Vision, well, we might have to get used to the fact he's dead.
'WandaVision' Episode 6 is available for streaming on Disney+.
