WandaVision (Disney+)

Anyone watching WandaVision?

The first 2 episodes were practically perfect in combining period sitcom nostalgia appeal with that weird and foreboding sense of dread and displacement that Wanda and Vision clearly feel in trying to figure out what's exactly happening. That entire dinner scene in the first episode managed to combine cheesy humor with 4th wall mystery dread almost perfectly. This has probably been Marvel Studio's most creative look since Thor Ragnarok.

In fact I'm also starting to think that the most popular theory as to why all this is happening might be real.

Well caught up to episode 3. Yeah, this is getting a bit frightening. A lot of theories could be raised about this. But certainly Wanda has...gone a bit over the deep end. Whether she's being manipulated or being warped by some deal she made, I don't know. But the end result is that she's effectively captured this entire town and is holding them hostage to stage her fantasy.

The end of that third episode was downright creepy. A name gets dropped, Wanda gets pissed, and that woman gets flung out of there at mach speed. I don't thinks he's dead, but...she's definitely not ok.

Honestly not sure what can be done here though. The only person with any hope of resolving this is Vision and he's effectively another piece she's manipulating. Just a toy that she's playing make-believe with. Not going to be easy to deal with her when any time anyone raises a question about this she can just rewind reality. Although one bonus is that she might not be able to erase things that she can't know about. So the doubts and questions Vision has in episode 3 are still going to be there.

It is pretty tragic how things played out with Wanda. She lost her family, later her brother, the love of her life, etc. The real question I suppose is whether she's gone insane with grief and this is all her powers. Or if she was lost in grief and made a bargain. Either way she's definitely the main character, but also the present main threat of this story.

The scenes between Vis and Norm as well as the increase in the show rapidly switching between sitcom and sithorror in episode is some of the most unnerving things I've seen in recent years.

Spoiler for Episode 6?:

Episode 6 is one of the more horrifying things I've seen that's not in an actual horror movie.

After episode 6, many audience believe that this whole incident will create the mutants in the MCU.
