UPDATE: “WandaVision” Easter Eggs have been found

Stephanie Ramirez, reporter

“WandaVision,” Disney+’s new television series, has become one of the world’s most in-demand shows across multiple platforms. The sitcom-style series premiered on Jan. 15. As audiences dive into the world of Westview, clues of what’s to come are hidden in each episode.

Here’s a fair warning: SPOLIERS AHEAD!

Episode 1: “Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience”

“My Husband and his indestructible head”

This is both a comedic and painful memory for audiences following the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2008. Wanda Maximoff says this line to Vision at the start of the episode but as many now know, Vision was killed by Thanos in the 2018 film, “Avengers: Infinity War.” How? Well, his head was indeed destructible since Thanos tore out an Infinity stone — the Mind Stone — from the hero’s forehead.

Calendar Date: Aug. 23
Wanda and Vision worry about the date when they notice that there’s a heart drawn onto the calendar, indicating a significant event. In the episode, it turns out it was a reminder for a dinner they planned for Vision’s boss, Mr. Hart. However, when you convert the date in the European style format, 23/8, it actually links to issue #238 in the Marvel comics, “The Avengers: Unlimited Vision.” This is where Vision is unconscious after he was deactivated in issue #233 by Annihilus, an interdimensional conqueror.

Directed by Abe Brown
Once the credits roll after the first episode, there’s a moment where the words “Directed by Abe Brown” crosses the screen. In the MCU, Brown was a student who went to “Midtown School of Science and Technology” with Peter Parker, better known as Spider-Man. “WandaVision” takes place after Thanos’ “Snap” and it looks like the Midtown alumnus was one of the few who didn’t disappear.

Episode 2: “Don’t Touch that Dial”

Little Red Helicopter
Wanda discovers a strange device hiding in the bushes as she hears a mysterious sound coming from outside her home. It’s a little helicopter that has the S.W.O.R.D symbol and colors similar to Iron Man’s suit. The show has featured a product that has the name “Stark” on it. Is there a possibility that Tony Stark’s daughter, Morgan, will make an appearance later in the series? Only time will tell.

Strücker Watch Infomercial
HYDRA is an authoritarian group whose goal is world domination. One of HYDRA’s top leaders is Wolfgang von Strücker and it looks like the villain is part of the Westview world.

Episode 3: “Now in Color”

House Number 2800
Marvel comics has an extensive history with different universes that transport readers to multiple timelines. Much like Earth-616, the world where Wanda and Vision live in the comics, Wanda and Vision’s world in MCU is 2800, according to the glimpse of the couple’s house number on their front porch.

Pregnant Wanda Maximoff
In the comics, Wanda ends up having twin boys named Tommy and Billy. During this episode, Wanda and Vision contemplate what to name their unborn child. One wanted to name the baby Tommy and the other Billy. At the end of the episode, Wanda gave birth to twins, who were named like their comic namesakes.

Wanda’s Recollection of Pietro Maximoff
It’s been years since Wanda has ever spoken about her twin brother, Pietro. He was killed by Ultron in the 2015 “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and it wasn’t easy for Wanda. This is the first time Wanda talks about a memory from her past. This is a big deal since viewers are shown that Wanda does still have memory of her past.

Episode 4: “We Interrupt This Program”

The Blip
“The Blip” is the event that happened after the Hulk used Tony Stark’s nano-tech clone of the infinity gauntlet in “Avengers: Endgame,” where those who were taken by the snap return. It is revealed to the audience that Monica Rambeua was one of the characters in the returning “blip” .

The Rambeau and S.W.O.R.D
S.W.O.R.D is an intelligent agency that takes care of everything that is a superhero phenomenon. Monica Rambeua is part of the agency and her mother, Maria Rambeua, who’s also a good friend of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, was the founder and leader. This is shown as a small glimpse as Monica passes by a picture of her mother.

Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR)
The CMBR is important in the Marvel comics and the same is true for the cinematic universel. According to the comics, the CMBR is responsible for two important events: the creation of the infinity stones and the Fantastic Four. Audiences have seen a glimpse of how the infinity stones were created throughout the MCU films but the Fantastic Four has yet to be shown in the same universe. Now that the CMBR has been spoken in WandaVision, the Fantastic Four entering the MCU could become a reality.

Episode 5: “On a Very Special Episode…”

The Aerospace Engineer
When Monica Rambeau tells Darcy Lewis and Jimmy Woo about knowing an aerospace engineer that could help them, fans instantly think of Reed Richards, aka Fantastic Four’s Mr. Fantastic. With the CMBR easter egg from the last episode, it would make sense for Marvel Studios to introduce the Fantastic Four after fans have been waiting for their arrival since it was announced they would be included in the films.

A Familiar Pietro Maximoff
In the 2015 “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Pietro Maximoff was played by Aaron-Taylor Johnson. His character has also been played by Evan Peters in the X-Men movies, but not in the MCU films. Seeing Peters play his version of Pietro is interesting since this can be seen as an introduction for the X-Men to enter the MCU.

Episode 6: “All-New Halloween Spooktacular”

Wanda, Vision, Billy & Tommy’s Halloween Costume
Comic book fans can instantly spot the spontaneous costumes the main characters wear during this Halloween special. Both Wanda and Vision dress up as their iconic comic book outfits as “Scarlett & The Vision,” while Billy and Tommy are dressed as their alter ego, Wiccan and Speed. The introduction of the boys may hint at a possible “Young Avengers” appearance in the future.

Vision’s Death (Again!)
What would happen if Vision ends up leaving Westview? Episode 6 has the answer: Vision can’t leave the town without being torn apart. The character is alive and conscious in Wanda’s world but once he steps a foot outside, he becomes nothing more than a destroyed synthetic android. This is a gamechanger. If Wanda is stopped and everything goes back to normal, Vision won’t be making his return with the rest of the town.

Episode 7: “Breaking the Fourth Wall”

A commercial for a fictional anti-depressant pill called “Nexus” is shown during the episode, telling viewers that the “world doesn’t revolve around you.” In the comics, there are “Nexus Beings” who can change the future. Vision and Wanda are Nexus Beings and they are watched by the Time Variance Authority. The upcoming show “Loki” will feature the TVA which will lead the Nexus of All Realities to soon be featured in the MCU.

Monica Rambeau’s powers are officially in this episode that leaves viewers astonished and wanting to know more. Her superhero name in the comics is “Spectrum” and her powers consist of forming an electromagnetic energy that can duplicate various powers like flight, speed, invisibility, etc. The powers that she has is an ultimate threat to Wanda and everything she has created.

Agatha Harkness
Wanda isn’t alone in creating her own world and she had some help from her nosey neighbor Agnes, better known as Agatha Harkness, a powerful witch who eventually becomes a mentor to Scarlet Witch in the Marvel comics. Harkness will become a big deal in the series and this could only lead to something much darker.

Post-Credit Scene
Marvel is famous for their highly anticipated post-credit scenes and this episode is the first in the series that included one. They offer a short scene where Monica finds Agatha’s basement. Pietro stops Monica before she enters, who turns around to reveal a tint of purple flashing across her eyes. This could indicate the possibility that Agatha has gotten her control on Monica. The series takes place in different sitcom eras, but this scene hints that we may be leaving it behind and entering the reality of the Marvel Universe.

Episode 8: “Previously On”

Salem Witch Trials

Audiences are given a glimpse of who Harkness is. She’s a witch that was in the Salem Witch Trials in 1693 and in the comics, Harkness met Scarlet Witch before she was burned at the stake. Eventually, Harkness resurfaces once Wanda had her twins.

The Mind Stone

Wanda and her brother, Pietro, were a part of an experiment by HYDRA. Viewers learn that Wanda has had her abilities before the experiments, but HYDRA just enhanced them and made her stronger. When Wanda sees the Mind Stone, she sees the outline of Scarlet Witch in the iconic outfit featured in the comics.

“To Grow Old In”

Wanda is given a property deed that has a map of a lot and a heart is drawn over it with the words, “To grow old in, V.” Vision purchased the lot for them and the heart also explains the heart drawn on the calendar in the first episode.

House of M Connection

In this episode, we learn how Wanda’s reality began. She first started by building her own home and it eventually branched out to creating her own world that includes the town of Westview. In the “House of M” comics, Scarlet Witch goes through a breakdown when she loses her twins, trying to alter reality so she can save them. The way Wanda’s powers are shown in this episode also connects with what happened in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

Chaos Magic & The Scarlet Witch

Agatha tells Wanda that what she possesses is “Chaos Magic.” In the comics, Harkness trains Scarlet Witch to control this strong magic, which is what Wanda uses to manipulate and alter realities. This is also the first time where Agatha calls Wanda “the Scarlet Witch.” Wanda’s hero name has never been said in the MCU films, so this is an important moment for the character.

Post-Credit Scene #2

Another post-credit scene was featured in this episode. It featured S.W.O.R.D’s director Tyler Hayward talking about how his team has tried to put Vision’s body back together but have failed. He realizes that the only way they were able to rebuild him was to use Wanda’s energy. Hayward’s team is able to turn on Vision but this Vision looks different. He has no color and looks more like a white ghost than the colorful characters fans are used to seeing. According to the comics, White Vision is a character who is emotionless and has no memory of the original Vision’s mind. The next episode will be the season finale and White Vision could play a big part.

Episode 9: “The Series Finale”


“The Wizard of Oz” reference

When Wanda and Agatha are fighting, Wanda uses her power to throw a car at her. Audiences can see Agatha’s boots under the car and this reference gives a nod to Dorothy’s house crushing the Wicked Witch of the East in the 1939 classic film, “The Wizard of Oz.

Ralph Bohner

“WandaVision’s” Pietro Maximoff turns out to be a regular citizen of Westview and his real name is Ralph Bohner. In the earlier episodes of the show, when Agatha was only known as Agnes, she always spoke about her “husband,” Ralph. It turns out Agatha has been staying at Bohner’s house and she has been hiding there since the beginning.

Sorcerer Supreme

“Sorcerer Supreme” was last said in the 2016 film, “Doctor Strange.” According to Harkness, Wanda’s “powers exceed that of the Sorcerer Supreme.” This indicates that holding the title of the Scarlet Witch is more powerful than Doctor Strange. This connection will most likely occur in the upcoming film, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

The Ship of Theseus & the Visions

The Ship of Theseus is a real thought experiment that has been talked about for a very long time. Theseus, from Greek mythology, owned a ship that was entirely made from wood. Every time the ship needed fixing, the parts would be replaced with metal. This would continue for years until the ship was entirely made out of metal. The question is: Is the metal ship of Theseus the same ship as the wooden ship of Theseus?

The question that confuses the White Vision when he tells the original Vision that he was sent to “eliminate The Vision.” OG Vision asks him, “If those removed planks are restored and reassembled, free of the rot, is that the Ship of Theseus?” White Vision comes to the conclusion that “The Vision” really doesn’t exist and if it does, White Vision is the definition of who S.W.O.R.D is trying to destroy. The mechanics of who the White Vision is doesn’t make him different because the parts he possesses is who the original Vision is. Will it become a deeper meaning in the MCU? It’s a possibility and it will be interesting how they will incorporate this in the future.

The Darkhold

According to the comics, the Darkhold is an ancient book that contains evil spells that can’t be destroyed due to the nature of the indestructible parchment it was written on. The author of this book is an evil elder god named Chthon. In this episode, Harkness tells Wanda that her powers will soon unleash Chthon, who will destroy the world. In the comics, Chthon is also known to use Chaos Magic — the same magic that was talked about in Episode 8. 

“Even an Android Can Cry”

Before Vision disappears as the hex comes to a close at the end of the episode, he sheds a single tear. This is a reference to the comics — specifically “Avengers: Vol. 1, #58” where Vision wants to be a part of the Avengers and he is tested to see if he attains heroism and humanity. Once he passes the test and becomes a part of the team, he sheds a tear, proving that he has a humanistic trait.

Series Finale Post-Credit Scene #1

In this first post-credit scene, Wanda has left Westview as S.W.O.R.D’s agents are  looking for her in the town. Monica Rambeau is told by an agent that there is someone who wants to talk to her. It turns out that the agent is a Skrull in disguise and she tells Rambeau that an old friend wants her to join him in space — Nick Fury, the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. The last time audiences saw Fury was in the post-credits of “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” where it was revealed that he was stationed in space. This could connect with “Captain Marvel 2,” since the events that’s happening in “WandaVision” takes place six months before the film.

Series Finale Post-Credit Scene #2

In the second post-credit scene, Wanda’s location has been found. She’s living in a cabin surrounded by mountains. The name of the location hasn’t been said, but there’s a possibility it is at Wundagore Mountain. In the comics, this is the location where Chthon wrote the Darkhold while imprisoned. Also, Wanda is seen using the same astral projection that Doctor Strange uses, but unlike him, she’s awake while projecting. At the end of the scene, the voices of Wanda’s children, Billy and Tommy, call out her name for help. According to TheDirect.com,  the Billy and Tommy actors, Jullian Hilliard and Jett Klyne, have been seen on the set of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” This could indicate that fans will see the young heroes again in the near future.
