The mid-credits scene in the last episode of WandaVision signals a devastating finale for Wanda Maximoff and Vision.
Warning – spoilers ahead for episode eight of WandaVision, Previously On.
After weeks of Bewitched and Malcolm In The Middle hijinks and plenty of viewer confusion, how the Westview Hex came to be was finally explained, as Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) forced Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) to relive the memories that led her to this moment.
Wanda was so consumed with grief after seeing Vision’s body dismantled at SWORD (Sentient World Observation and Response Department) that she created a world inside television shows that brought her love back to life.
But in a mid-credits scene, Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) has a devilish plan for Vision in the form of Operation Cataract.
The SWORD director used a sample of the Westview Anomaly to rebuild Vision’s physical body and bring him back online – but in a new form.
Marvel comic book readers will recognise this Vision version as White Vision, who was introduced in John Byrne’s West Coast Avengers.
White Vision is essentially a sentient weapon – while the Vision we know and love (played by Paul Bettany) has displayed emotions since Avengers: Age of Ultron and fell in love with Wanda, White Vision is devoid of all emotion and memory.
In the comics, White Vision clashes with Wanda after her full transformation into Scarlet Witch – so the final episode of WandaVision may see Wanda having to go up against the form of the person she wanted brought back to life the most, but who doesn’t even remember her.
Yep, prepare for more devastation.
This theory also suggests that the Vision in the Hex may go up against White Vision as well.
All we know is, it doesn’t sound like things will end happily ever after.
The introduction of White Vision seems to tie WandaVision to the upcoming film Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, which Wanda will appear in.
In the comics, the big villain behind the creation of White Vision is Immortus, a character also known as Kang the Conqueror – who will be the villain in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.
Kang’s plot involves using Scarlet Witch to become the ‘absolute master of time’, which ties into her inclusion in the new Doctor Strange film.
Some fans reckon that Doctor Stephen Strange himself (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) will pop up in the season finale of WandaVision, as a lead in to the next movie.
