Wanda Maximoff, let me offer you a hug.
First, this episode’s opening title sequence is a nod to the title sequence from Malcolm within the Center.
In actual fact, you possibly can even see that the font fashion is similar because the font from Malcolm within the Center.
The lyrics for the opening theme tune are additionally fairly telling. They speak about not questioning what you have accomplished, asking what if that is “all phantasm,” however finally the tune 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 means of realizing who’s coming by to play.” In fact, this can be a nod to Evan Peters’ shock look in Episode 5.
Similar 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 a superb 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 most likely removed every thing else so Imaginative and prescient must proceed enjoying alongside.
For those who look carefully, you possibly can see that Pietro has a “Mother” tattoo, and Evan Peters truly 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.
Whereas trick or treating, Pietro tells Billy and Tommy to “unleash hell, demon spawn.” Now, within the comics, Billy and Tommy had been created utilizing elements of Mephisto’s soul, and Mephisto is the satan.
Imaginative and prescient mentions to Wanda that if he had discovered “Shangri-La,” he would not wish to depart both. Within the Marvel comics, Shangri-La was based by a model of Imaginative and prescient.
Tommy refers to Pietro utilizing his velocity as “kick-ass,” after which Wanda repeats the phrase. That is most likely a nod to the film Kick-Ass, which starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters aka each variations of Pietro.
The industrial in Episode 6 is certainly essentially the most on the market one up to now, but when we’re nonetheless following the idea that every industrial represents a time in Wanda’s life, I am going with this represents Wanda being on their own after Endgame.
Additionally, whereas we now have but to determine how Wanda created Westview, the shark may characterize somebody (Mephisto?) who supplied to assist Wanda overcome Imaginative and prescient’s dying or somebody is actually “snacking” on Wanda’s magic.
The Incredibles and The Guardian Entice are each enjoying 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 Guardian Entice is about two lengthy misplaced twins reuniting, like Wanda and this model of Pietro.
Wanda and Pietro speak about 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 recollects that he obtained shot “for no motive in any respect,” which might be a nod to how pointless Quicksilver’s dying was in Age of Ultron, and the way followers nonetheless speak about 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 just like Wanda’s.
For Halloween, Agnes is dressed up like a witch, and this hyperlinks to the season-long idea 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 working full steam forward with this Mephisto idea.
Darcy scrolls previous a number of folders, one in all which says, “Undertaking C4-113.” This is not the primary time “113” has come up in WandaVision, and it may reference Avengers Difficulty #113, which options Scarlet Witch and Imaginative and prescient on the duvet, and Scarlet Witch saying she’s going to make the world pay for Imaginative and prescient’s dying.
And, one other file reads “Undertaking M5-247,” and “247” might be a reference to Avengers Difficulty #247, which options The Eternals revealing their origin, and Scarlet Witch and Imaginative and prescient making an attempt to assist Captain Marvel.
Darcy informs Monica that her cells have been rewritten, twice, since coming into and exiting the Hex. That is one more trace that Monica might be getting powers and can grow to be Photon, identical to within the comedian books.
Similar 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 possibly can 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 possibly can see one of many pretend gravestones reads “Janell Sammelman.” Janell is a primary assistant director on WandaVision.
When Wanda strikes Westview to be able to save Imaginative and prescient, she turns S.W.O.R.D. headquarters right into a circus. Within the comedian books, there’s truly a plot level the place Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Hawkeye be a part of the circus.
In actual fact, earlier on this episode I noticed a “22,” and whereas this might be a stretch, Avengers Vol. 1, Difficulty #22 is definitely the comedian e-book the place Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, you guessed it, be a part of the circus.
And at last, simply because I really like crying, we obtained official affirmation that Imaginative and prescient can not survive outdoors of the Hex. You’ll be able to see that as quickly as he was introduced again inside Westview, his physique healed.
