The newest episode of WandaVision answered the largest query the MCU Part IV had begun with- who’s helming the ever-spreading pseudo-reality within the small city of Westview. There have been different main reveals as effectively, reminiscent of how the pretend Pietro landed in Westview however there’s nonetheless the lingering query of who he actually is.
Ever because the X-Males‘s model of Quicksilver a.okay.a. Peter Maximoff landed at Wanda’s doorstep in Westview, the Web has been rife with theories making an attempt to reply all of the whys and hows his presence triggered. However the newest episode of WandaVision, “Breaking the Fourth Wall,” has not solely solved the thriller of who introduced this model of Pietro in Westview but in addition subtle the main theories floating round of him being the true villain in disguise who had arrived within the city to spy on Wanda.
As Wanda had been the prime candidate for creating the sitcom-world in Westview, it appeared apt to assert that similar to she introduced Imaginative and prescient to life, her grief over shedding her brother prompted her to pluck his different model from the X-Males’s universe as not like Imaginative and prescient’s physique, she did not have entry to Pietro’s physique to deliver him again to life. However given her palpable confusion at discovering him at her door, we had been positive that it was not Wanda’s doing and Episode 7 confirms the identical.
Agnes a.okay.a. Agatha Harkness introduced him to Westview
It has now been revealed that Wanda shouldn’t be the “only magical girl” on the town as Agnes is admittedly the highly effective witch, Agatha Harkness, somethings followers had predicted lengthy earlier than the sequence had even launched on Disney+. She was the one who introduced this pretend Pietro into Wanda’s dream life and is the “she” Norm talked about was in his head, suppressing his actual identification. By some means, she is utilizing Wanda and her powers to maintain issues working in Westview and can also be controlling every part.
Agatha has been making an attempt to weaken Wanda
It seems that the principle agenda of Agatha was to get her hands-on Wanda’s twins and thus she has been plotting to make Wanda spend a considerable amount of her powers to weaken her. First, she killed Sparky, the twins’ canine, in hopes that Wanda would give in to her youngsters’s unhappiness and convey the canine to life, one thing which might have wanted her to overexert herself.
When this failed, she lured Imaginative and prescient to the boundaries of the vitality subject overlaying Westview and faked that she was beneath Wanda’s management, unable to depart Westview. That is what prompted Imaginative and prescient to step outdoors the barrier to know what’s outdoors after which, nearly dying in consequence which apparently means he will not keep alive with out the Hex. This made Wanda exceed the restrict of her powers as she expanded the boundaries of her fake-reality to incorporate not solely Imaginative and prescient however nearly the whole S.W.O.R.D. base with its brokers.
Episode 7 begins with the side-effects of Wanda utilizing a lot power- she is torpid and issues round her are unable to be as decade-appropriate as they was once. They’re zapping backwards and ahead in time, constantly altering fashions. It then turns into straightforward for Agatha to trick Wanda in her present weakened and confused state the place she manages to kidnap her youngsters from beneath her nostril and at last confronts her with the reality.
However the identification of pretend Pietro remains to be a query
He might be Peter Maximoff, the Quicksilver within the X-Males’s universe, whom Agatha dropped at distract Wanda and to allay any guilt she has about creating the sitcom-reality in case she was having second ideas. She overwrote his reminiscences similar to she has with the townspeople and gave him a special persona however was solely in a position to give the small print about Pietro she knew. Apparently, the struggle in Sokovia is public data and everybody is aware of Pietro was shot down on the streets whereas saving Hawkeye. This is able to clarify why he solely remembers his demise precisely whereas all his different reminiscences differ from how Wanda remembers it. Does this imply that we are able to nonetheless count on Professor Charles Xavier to drop in any day to save lots of him?
Or possibly, similar to the outline of Agnes being simply Wanda’s “nosy neighbour” now means squat, most likely the audio description in Episode 5 specifying that it was X-Males’s model of Quicksilver was solely meant to make us consider that that is how the multiverse has been triggered. It might be that this “Pietro” is simply somebody Agatha (and Marvel Studios) created to play with Wanda’s (and our) thoughts.
However the greater query is whether or not he’s nonetheless beneath Agatha’s management as a result of, after being absent all through the newest episode, the mid-credit scene exhibits him catching Monica snooping round Agatha’s home. If he’s Agatha’s creation or nonetheless beneath her management, it will not bode effectively for Monica. Although she has now embraced her comedian guide roots, she is but to understand the extent of her powers. So, until she by chance hits him with one in all her vitality blasts, she is certainly in a pickle. But when it is certainly Peter, possibly Imaginative and prescient can wake him up like similar to Darcy.
