WandaVision: All-New Halloween Spooktacular! Review
After a Bone-chilling new episode, WandaVison leaves us with more questions than answers AGAIN!
Another Friday has come, meaning my mind was once again blown after watching a new episode of WandaVision on Disney+. Week after week, Marvel Studios puts out a fantastic episode after a fantastic episode, expanding the already gigantic universe known as The MCU, which was no different this week. We are now getting into the meat of the show as we are nearing close to the finale, so these episodes are only going to get crazier and crazier since it is setting up the new phase the MCU is now entering.
This episode was an homage to Malcolm in the Middle, which made me super giddy because I loved that show. Billy takes Malcolm's place as he breaks the fourth wall giving his perspective at certain points in the show. Speaking of the twins, Billy and Tommy become much more crucial to the story as both gain their abilities, and Billy is the unsung hero as he saves his father from potentially dying again. Uncle Pete's presence continues to beg more questions and answers less as everyone is still confused over him, including himself. He does share that the reason for his arrival was that he heard Wanda and sensed she needed him. However, it seems now that Pete is around, Wanda got more than she bargained for as her brother is only making things in Westview more difficult and frustrating.
Another moment that probably had viewers scratching their heads comes from Agnes, everyone's prime suspect as the villainous mind behind all of this, as she seems to be just like the rest of the Westview victims. This could undoubtedly be a ploy by Agnes, who might have been trying to get rid of Vision. Remember, in the last episode, Vision opposed Agnes's involvement in the twins, so maybe she wanted him out of the equation or had another agenda, or she really is just another victim. Meanwhile, on the other side of The Hex, Hayward is up to something. Monica, Lee, and Darcy want to get to the bottom of it. Before they can, however, they are kicked out. Lee and Rambeau head out on a trip to the Raft, where Monica's friend can help get them back into Westview. Darcy unintentionally gets the one up on them as she hides out on the S.W.O.R.D site to continue her quest on figuring out Hayward's secret plan when she gets sucked into a growing Hex.
The Hex grows after Billy tells Wanda Vision is in trouble to where her response is just to expand The Hex get Vision back in Westview and put an end to most of the pestering of S.W.O.R.D agents as they are turned into clowns. The only ones who escaped are Monica and Lee, and Hayward, along with a few agents with him. Another thing to note before I end is that Monica's cells are changing due to The Hex hinting that perhaps she could be close to becoming her alter ego of Photon. Things are definitely heating up, and I, for one, am all for it. I give this episode a 9/10 star rating because there was so much to love in this episode, from the 90's nostalgia, the performance from Evan Peters and the twins, to the classic comic book costumes.
