It’s coming up to one week since WandaVision‘s final episode premiered on Disney+. The finale gave fans answers to a lot of their questions but also left us with a few new ones to ponder on. One of the biggest mysteries is what happened to White Vision?
During the post-credit scene of episode 8, S.W.O.R.D. director, Tyler Hayward, finally revealed his hand, when he brought Vision’s body back to life using some of Wanda’s chaos magic.
While fans may have anticipated that the two versions of Vision would spend most of the final episode fighting to the death, the outcome was quite different. After spending some time fighting a battle that neither Vision seemed to be winning, they settled their duel with a logic-based riddle using the “Ship of Theseus” philosophical thought experiment.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, WandaVision executive producer and head writer, Jac Schaeffer, discussed the thought process behind ending the battle the way that they chose.
Schaeffer also revealed that the idea of using the “Ship of Theseus” as a way to end the fight was thought up by Captain Marvel 2 writer Megan McDonnell.
The writer also touched on White Vision’s future in the MCU. By the end of episode 9 of WandaVision fans were left wondering where he went after he flew out of the Hex and wasn’t seen again.
While it’s unclear if we will see White Vision again in the MCU, his disappearance is obviously a loose end that Marvel Studios will have to tie up at some point in the future. What is clear, however, is that the memories that the Hex’s version of Vision managed to restore in White Vision’s memory banks won’t change the fact that this isn’t the Vision we have known previously in the MCU.
You can watch all nine episodes of WandaVision on Disney+. If you’re going to miss your regular MCU fix this week before The Falcon and the Winter Soldier releases next Friday, you can watch Assembled: The Making of WandaVision on Disney+ tomorrow.
