Please note this is not an exhaustive list but some of those that we found of particular interest or potential importance. Also if you have not seen this episode then there will be spoilers ahead.
Episode 5 gave us another look at the world outside of Westview and split the episode up between the sitcom-style that the series started with and S.W.O.R.D. We got a few more insights into what is really going inside Wanda’s pocket reality. So, let’s have a look at the key WandaVision Episode 5 Easter Eggs and major incidents in this episode.
This week saw the sitcom jump another decade into the future and land in the 80s. The style this week was taken from Family Ties. Wanda and Vision’s house had changed again and now looked very much like the Keaton’s house from Family Ties. The opening images also pay homage to other sitcoms like Growing Pains and Full House.
The twins, Tommy and Billy, had a fair amount of screen time during this episode and aged from babies in their cribs to ten-year-olds by the end of the episode.
There is a scene where Vision is holding one of the twins and states that he tried reading to him but even Charles Darwin’s “The Descent of Man” only made him cry more. This book is all about human evolution and is a nod to the way the twins grow and evolve during this episode.
When the couple is struggling to get the twins off to sleep they are joined by the familiar face of their neighbour, Agnes. She introduces herself in this scene as “Aunty Agnes“. This could be a nod to the comic character we are pretty sure she is based on because, in the comics, Wanda refers to Agatha Harkness as Aunty Agatha. Agnes also claims to have a few tricks up her sleeve which seems to again point to her witchcraft.
One of the biggest aspects from this scene was a little less subtle and is when Agnes asks Wanda if she wants her to take her scene again after she forgot her line. This reiterates the whole “actors in Wanda’s sitcom” theme but is a little different in that Agnes is aware of it, whereas the other actors don’t appear to be.
During a scene between Darcy and Monica, Monica mentions she knows an aerospace engineer who may help. This one line may be nothing but it could potentially be huge.
The first character that springs to mind with this is the leader of the Fantastic Four, Reed Richards. It could also be Sue Storm or even Victor Von Doom. There could be a multitude of smaller characters this could be, but another major character would be Hank McCoy, aka Beast from X-Men. This would make sense as Hank is a member or S.W.O.R.D. for a while in the comics.
If it turned out to be any of the above then it will be a major plot point. Fans have been clamouring for the X-Men and Fantastic Four to join the MCU for a long time.
Up until this episode, the only person we have seen leave Westview is Monica. The agent who entered the sewers and emerged in Westview dressed as a beekeeper might be another, but as yet we do not know his fate. This episode saw the barrier on the town part while Wanda exited dressed in her usual MCU garb and speaking her more familiar Sokovian accent.
The Big Reveal
The biggest reveal of the episode came at the end. As Wanda and Vision are arguing over the reality that has been created and Vision is starting to realise something is wrong, the doorbell rings. After a moment’s hesitation, Wanda goes and answers it. Who is stood there… OLD Captain America… Just kidding. It’s Pietro. But not the MCU Pietro we are used to, the Fox Quicksilver from X-Men Days of Future Past played by Evan Peters.
There could be many reasons why he was, as Darcy says, recast. The main theory though is that the multiverse is being opened up by Wanda and she pulled the wrong Pietro though to her reality.
While we know this is not all of the WandaVision Episode 5’s Easter eggs, callbacks and reveals on the show, these are the ones we thought were the biggest. If there are any you think we missed let us know in the comments below. And don’t forget to tune into Disney+ this Friday to watch episode six.
