Actually, you may even see that the font model is identical because the font from Malcolm within the Center.
The lyrics for the opening theme music are additionally fairly telling. They discuss not questioning what you’ve got carried out, asking what if that is “all phantasm,” however in the end the music says, “sit again and benefit from the present.”
When Pietro is proven within the opening sequence the lyrics are, “Although there could also be no approach of figuring out who’s coming by to play.” In fact, this can be a nod to Evan Peters’ shock look in Episode 5.
Identical to Malcolm on Malcolm within the Center, Billy and Tommy break the the fourth wall all through the episode and speak on to viewers.
Wanda and Imaginative and prescient’s home has as soon as once more modified to suit with the period they’re in, and elements of it resemble the within of the home on Malcolm within the Center.
In fact, Wanda and Imaginative and prescient’s Halloween costumes are an excellent and completely excellent nod to Scarlet Witch and Imaginative and prescient’s authentic superhero outfits within the Marvel comics.
Imaginative and prescient makes an off-handed remark that he needed to put on the Halloween costume as a result of it was the one factor in his closet. This implies Wanda in all probability removed every little thing else so Imaginative and prescient must proceed taking part in alongside.
Should you look intently, you may see that Pietro has a “Mother” tattoo, and Evan Peters really has this tattoo in actual life.
Talking of costumes, Pietro’s Halloween costume matches Quicksilver’s authentic costume from the Marvel comedian books.
And, Billy’s costume on this episode matches Billy’s Wiccan costume from the comedian books.

The business in Episode 6 is unquestionably essentially the most on the market one thus far, but when we’re nonetheless following the idea that every business represents a time in Wanda’s life, I am going with this represents Wanda being on their own after Endgame.
Additionally, whereas we have now but to determine how Wanda created Westview, the shark may characterize somebody (Mephisto?) who provided to assist Wanda overcome Imaginative and prescient’s demise or somebody is actually “snacking” on Wanda’s magic.
The Incredibles and The Father or mother Entice are each taking part in on the movie show Wanda, Pietro, and the twins stroll by. The Incredibles is a film a few superhero household, like Wanda, Imaginative and prescient, Billy, and Tommy. And, The Father or mother Entice is about two lengthy misplaced twins reuniting, like Wanda and this model of Pietro.
Wanda and Pietro discuss their accent at one level, and never solely is that this a playful nod to Wanda’s accent slowly disappearing within the MCU films, however in X-Males Evan Peters’ Pietro was raised within the US, so he does not have a Sokovian accent. So, that is simply one other nod that this is not the MCU’s Quicksilver.
Pietro remembers that he obtained shot “for no cause in any respect,” which may very well be a nod to how pointless Quicksilver’s demise was in Age of Ultron, and the way followers nonetheless discuss how common bullets should not have killed him.
In Episode 6, Billy and Tommy lastly showcase their powers and I really feel like a proud mother as a result of I used to be simply screaming, “My boys!” Within the comics, Tommy has tremendous velocity, whereas Billy’s powers are much like Wanda’s.
For Halloween, Agnes is dressed up like a witch, and this hyperlinks to the season-long concept that Agnes is definitely Agatha Harkness.
In fact, Wanda warns Billy and Tommy to not go previous Ellis Avenue, and that is precisely the place Imaginative and prescient goes to exit the Hex. Additionally, Imaginative and prescient is at a literal crossroads, and in folklore crossroads are sometimes used to summon the satan — I am actually simply operating full steam forward with this Mephisto concept.
Darcy scrolls previous a number of folders, considered one of which says, “Mission C4-113.” This is not the first time “113” has come up in WandaVision, and it may reference Avengers Subject #113, which options Scarlet Witch and Imaginative and prescient on the quilt, and Scarlet Witch saying she’s going to make the world pay for Imaginative and prescient’s demise.

Darcy informs Monica that her cells have been rewritten, twice, since getting into and exiting the Hex. That is but one other trace that Monica may very well be getting powers and can turn into Photon, similar to within the comedian books.
Identical to when Wanda noticed Imaginative and prescient’s lifeless physique in Episode 4, Wanda sees Pietro’s lifeless physique after speaking about feeling alone. That is what Pietro appeared just like the final time she noticed him after he was shot in Age of Ultron.
When Darcy emails Hayward’s Cataract plans, you may see the names “James Gadd” and “James Alexander” as e mail choices. James Gadd works in post-production at Marvel Studios and James Alexander is a visible results producer on WandaVision.
After Wanda blasts Pietro, you may see one of many pretend gravestones reads “Janell Sammelman.” Janell is a primary assistant director on WandaVision.
When Wanda strikes Westview with a view to save Imaginative and prescient, she turns S.W.O.R.D. headquarters right into a circus. Within the comedian books, there’s really a plot level the place Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Hawkeye be part of the circus.
Actually, earlier on this episode I noticed a “22,” and whereas this may very well be a stretch, Avengers Vol. 1, Subject #22 is definitely the comedian ebook the place Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, you guessed it, be part of the circus.
And eventually, simply because I like crying, we obtained official affirmation that Imaginative and prescient can’t survive exterior of the Hex. You’ll be able to see that as quickly as he was introduced again inside Westview, his physique healed.
