Hello everyone! 🙂
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!
It’s time for the sixth episode of ‘WandaVision’, which I’m currently enjoying watching on Disney+. I’m very intrigued about what’s going on as things seem to take a serious turn for the worst. It’s quite a contrast to how ‘WandaVision’ started in having a quite happy, cheerful TV sitcom atmosphere.
We now move into the late 1990s and early 2000s with this particular episode. I don’t know about the sitcom atmosphere the episode’s trying to go for, considering I’ve not seen many American sitcoms from the late 1990s/early 2000s. Though I’ve heard it’s based upon ‘Malcolm in the Middle’.
In the episode, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda wants to spend the first Halloween with her two sons Tommy and Billy. But Paul Bettany as Vision says he’s going to patrol the streets with the neighbourhood watch whilst Wanda, Tommy, Billy and Evan Peters as Pietro are out ‘trick or treating’.
And yes, Evan Peters is back as Quicksilver following his cameo at the end of the previous episode. It’s not clearly explained how Evan Peters’ Quicksilver is in the ‘MCU’ and in ‘WandaVision’ itself. It was intriguing to see Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda and Evan Peters’ Quicksilver interact with each other.
It’s very different from the interaction between Wanda and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s Pietro in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. In fact, is Evan Peters’ Pietro/Quicksilver the same one from ‘Age of Ultron’? I don’t remember Evan Peters’ Pietro/Quicksilver being killed off in ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’.
I’ll have to be sure on that one when it comes to revisiting the ‘X-Men’ film series sometime soon. Anyway, Pietro offers to be a father-figure for Tommy and Billy and he gets to cause mischief using his super-speed. Evan Peters’ Quicksilver is more popular than Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s apparently. 😐
Meanwhile, Vision finds many members of Westview frozen in their positions, including Kathyrn Hahn as Agnes. When talking to the real Agnes in her car, Vision finds out from her that he’s dead. He soon tries to push through the static wall, but he begins to disintegrate when he’s on the outside.
Also outside are Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, Randall Park as Jimmy Woo and Kat Dennings as Darcy who find themselves in trouble when disagreeing with Josh Stamberg as S.W.O.R.D. acting director Tyler Hayward for attacking Wanda in the previous episode. They find a way to fight back. 😐
The episode ends with Wanda expanding the hexagonal static wall to keep Vision inside. Darcy and several S.W.O.R.D. agents are also enveloped by this new boundary by Wanda. It seems that Wanda is made out to be more villainous with trapping many people inside her sitcom fantasy environment.
The sixth episode of ‘WandaVision’ has been thoroughly gripping. I’ve no idea how the series is going to end and how long Wanda can keep up with this madness she has to try and give herself and Vision a happy life together, even when it endangers many people as well as having changing sitcom shows.
And yes, I did notice Wanda in the original Scarlet Witch costume and Vision in the original Vision costume from the comics in this episode! 😀
Stay tuned for my review on the seventh episode of ‘WandaVision’ next week.
Thanks for reading!
Bye for now
