Warning: spoilers ahead for last week’s episode of WandaVision.
One of the many WandaVision theories flying around suggests that Monica Rambeau’s (Teyonah Parris) friend Major Goodner (Rachael Thompson) is linked to the 2019 film Captain Marvel… and we’re super intrigued.
In episode seven of Marvel’s WandaVision on Disney Plus, Monica finally manages to make her way back into the Hex created by Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who is veered away by witch Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn).
Beforehand, Monica makes contact with an aerospace engineer – who fans are still hoping will turn out to be John Krasinski as Reed Richards from the Fantastic Four – who can supposedly help her re-enter Wanda’s fake reality safely.
Monica is seen carrying out a rendezvous with a military unit, introducing FBI agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) to a woman named Major Goodner, who shows the pair the vehicle that they believe can help Monica break back into the neighbourhood of Westview.
Several fans felt underwhelmed by Major Goodner’s introduction, under the impression that they would meet another more well-known character from the Marvel universe.
However, there is a possibility we have seen Major Goodner before, if a certain WandaVision theory is to be believed.
When Monica and Major Goodner greet each other, Monica says: ‘Thank you so much for coming. My mother would appreciate your loyalty,’ to which Major Goodner responds: ‘She’s not the only one we’re loyal to Captain.’
The pair clearly have a strong connection, which was also shared with Monica’s mother, S.W.O.R.D. founder Maria Rambeau, who was played by Lashana Lynch in Captain Marvel.
In Captain Marvel – which is set in the 1990s when Monica is a child – Maria, Monica and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) befriend the Skrulls, an extraterrestrial race with the ability to shapeshift.
It is discovered that Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), the leader of the Skrulls, is trying to find a safe home for his family and kin, which includes his young daughter, who becomes friendly with the similarly-aged Monica.
Some WandaVision fans have therefore drawn the conclusion that Major Goodner could be Talos’ now grown-up daughter in disguise as a human.
‘We’re all convinced 100% that Major Goodner is Talos’ daughter, right? The score when they introduce her sounds like Fury’s theme from Captain Marvel. Maybe she’s working with Fury in space, and he’s heading what was Maria’s true vision for SWORD,’ one person tweeted.
‘I’m pretty sure the aerospace engineer is the Skrull girl Monica was playing with in Captain Marvel. Goodner even said “We are always loyal to your mother”,’ another speculated.
With only two episodes left to be released of WandaVision, will all of our burning questions be answered?
WandaVision is available to watch on Disney Plus with new episodes released on Fridays.
