Following on from WandaVision’s episode 8 Easter eggs and call-backs, we take a deeper look into those we found during Episode 9. The Easter eggs were aplenty this week and while some were subtle, some were so obvious that they pretty much reached out of the screen and slapped you in the face.
Besides the scenes where we saw Westview transforming back and forward between the various decades, this episode (like episode 8) moved completely away from the sitcom format. We picked up where we left off last week with Wanda facing off against Agatha Harkness who held the twins on magic leashes.
As stated earlier the Easter eggs were present here but this episode was here to close out some of those plot threads that had been left exposed.
Many fans will be disappointed that the theories that have been floating around (Mephisto) have not turned out to be accurate, but there is no denying the fact this was an epic finale to an outstanding debut season for the MCU’s first Disney+ series. So without further ado, let’s get into the Easter Eggs we found here.
The Wizard of Oz
During the fight between Wanda and Agatha, Wanda uses her magic to launch a car at Agatha. The scene is reminiscent of Wanda’s fight with Iron-Man in Captain America: Civil War and finishes with the car slamming Agatha into the side of a nearby house. When Wanda heads over to investigate there is nothing but Agatha’s boots left under the car. A funny little nod to the classic movie, The Wizard of Oz.
Monica’s Powers Developing
While Wanda and Agatha are battling in the sky, Monica Rambeau intervenes down on the ground to prevent Wanda’s children being shot by S.W.O.R.D. Director, Tyler Hayward. As revealed in previous episodes, Monica gained her powers due to passing through the hex several times. This scene shows how she now has the ability to absorb energy as she absorbs the kinetic energy of the bullets.
We still do not know what superhero name Monica will take but we are assuming it will most likely be Spectrum.
Wanda Mind Controlling Agatha
During the fight between Wanda and Agatha, Wanda uses a technique we haven’t seen since her debut appearance on Age of Ultron. Her hand gestures during this scene are exactly the same as previously seen, but the effects this time are far less successful.
White Vision Receives His Memories
While the two Visions fight, there is a lapse in the battle that allows the hex Vision to explain the flaw in the command given to White Vision.
White Vision allows the Hex vision to tap into his circuitry and reveal his memories. He is instantly filled with the memories of the real Vision from his creation in Age of Ultron right through to his death on Infinity War.
In the mid-credits scene, Monica Rambeau is approached by a Skrull who is working for a friend of her mother’s, and seeks her help on a mission in space. After the post-credit scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which would have taken place at a similar time, we can assume she is referring to Nick Fury.
Since his appearance earlier in the season, fans have been wondering exactly who this new Pietro really is. It was revealed that he had been controlled by Agatha up to this point but we still had no idea who exactly he was. Fans theorised that he was the X-Men version of Quicksilver pulled from the multiverse. The reality though was a little less exciting, but also answered another question that fans have been desperate to be answered.
This Pietro turned out to be none other than Ralph Bohner. Yes the same Ralph that Agatha has been referring to all season as her husband.
Scarlet Witch Studies the Darkhold
The final episode not only gave us a mid-credit scene but also a post credit scene. This showed Wanda sat on a porch of a cabin waiting for a kettle of water to boil. As the camera zooms in and moves into the house, we are shown Scarlet Witch studying the Darkhold in a similar way to how Doctor Strange studies the books in the library at Kamar-Taj.
Well that certainly won’t be all the Easter eggs in the show, but the ones that stood out the most to us. If you enjoyed this season then stay tuned to Disney+ next week where they will go behind the scenes with The Making of WandaVision.
