WandaVision Explained: 5 Questions That Still Need Answering After That Finale

Dept. of Easter Eggs and Wild Speculations


We don’t know about you, but we really enjoyed that WandaVision finale. No, Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t show up as Doctor Strange, and we didn’t get a backdoor origin story to The X-Men, but the conclusion to Marvel Studios’ nine episode origin of The Scarlet Witch provided just the right amount of emotional closure and catharsis to be satisfying.

And while the series did well to tie up nearly all of its narrative threads, there are still quite a few pressing questions that we still need answers to. Here are five of them, in no particular order.

1. Who Was the Informant in Westview That Agent Woo Was Looking For?


In Episode 4 of WandaVision, “We Interrupt This Program,” we learn that the reason Monica Rambeau was sent to New Jersey was to assist FBI Special Agent Jimmy Woo in locating an informant who had gone missing. After that episode, there was no further mention of who that individual in witness protection might be. His identity is never revealed to us.

This seems like a pretty big detail for a red herring.

Which brings us to…

2. Did Marvel Just Cast Evan Peters to Troll Fans?

In the final episode of WandaVision, we are lead to believe that the mysterious, never seen husband that Agnes was constantly referring to is, in fact, Ralph Bohner, the Westview resident whose body she used to pose as Wanda’s dead brother Pietro. If this is true, then Evan Peters’ casting was nothing more than a phenomenal troll on the part of Marvel. (Not to mention a really long – and unnecessary – set-up for a boner joke.)


But what if… just hear us out… what if Ralph was actually Peter from the Fox X-Men movies, who travelled the multiverse (somehow), ended up on this Earth, and was now in FBI witness protection?

3. What Happens to White Vision?

After their physical and philosophical showdown, White Vision, overwhelmed by his newfound memories, simply exclaims “I am Vision,” and flies up into the sky.

Now, as far as we are aware, there have been no casting announcements with regards to Paul Bettany being in any of the upcoming MCU movies. It stands to reason, however, that if Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda is a key player in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, Vision will most likely have a part to play as well.

The resolution of the White Vision storyline in the comics is a little more complex. When we first meet White Vision in The West Coast Avengers #45, he is a blank shell of the man/synthezoid he once was. Insisting that he isn’t the “Vision” that Wanda fell in love with, their marriage is annulled, and the both of them end up like those awkward co-workers who once dated but still have to work together.

Over time, White Vision too begins to feel like a real boy and wants to transition back into his old self. With the help of a scientist, Miles Lipton, and by using a holographic projector, White Vision disguises himself as a human, Victor Shade, in order to mingle with humanity to learn more about their ways. When it is later discovered that White Vision still needs human brain patterns to function, Dr. Lipton endows him with the brain engrams of his late son, Alex, giving him the ability for emotional growth.

He fights another Vision (the Anti-Vision) from a parallel Earth.


He dates Carol Danvers for a bit (they go jet-skiing!).


But in the end, despite being restored to his previous self, both Vision and Wanda move on with their respective lives, their love story over for good.

This is not the happy ending we’d like to see in the MCU. Just saying.

4. Who Was the Skrull Agent Referring to When She Pointed up to the Sky?

Monica’s story ends in WandaVision with her being told by a Skrull agent:

I was sent by an old friend of your mother’s. He heard you’ve been grounded. He’d like to meet with you.

When Monica asks “where?” The Skrull agent points up towards the sky.


We think that this might be a reference to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury. We know that he is indeed an old friend of her mother’s (see: Captain Marvel). And when we last saw him (in Spider-Man: Far From Home) he was “vacationing” aboard what looked like a Skrull space station.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is set eight months after the events of Avengers: Endgame. WandaVision takes place mere days after “The Blip.” By that measure, Monica (Photon? Spectrum?) could already be on some super cool space mission by the time Spider-Man is taking place.

5. What Was Wanda up to in That Post-Credits Tag?

During the post-credits tag of WandaVision, we see The Scarlet Witch indulging in some astral projection. We’ve seen Stephen Strange do this previously in order to up his multitasking skills. Here one part of Wanda is making herself a cup of tea, while another part of her is studying the Darkhold, ostensibly looking for her children.


As she’s reading the Darkhold, we hear Billy and Tommy’s voices:

Billy: Mom, help! Mom, please!
Tommy: Help! Mom, please!

Where are the children? What happened to them when “the hex” disappeared? If they are trapped in some “Dark Dimension,” is Vision there as well? Is this where we’ll finally meet Mephisto?
