Quick ‘WandaVision’ Review – ‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’


Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

We’re now on the seventh episode of ‘WandaVision’ in the ‘MCU’! I enjoyed the episode when watching it on Disney+ last weekend. I’ve still have no idea how this series is going to end as there are so many twists and revelations featured in this episode. Will the answers to all of our questions be answered?

In the episode, we move to a mid-to-late 2000s setting. The episode pays homage to sitcoms of that era including ‘Modern Family’. I’ve not seen ‘Modern Family’ at all, though I can imagine it involves a lot of fourth wall breaking, like Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda and Paul Bettany as Vision do in the tale. 😐

Incidentally, the fourth wall breaking did put me in mind a lot of ‘The Muppets’ 2015-16 series. 😀 Anyway, the episode has Wanda deciding to have a day to herself whilst Kathryn Hahn as Agnes babysits the two boys Tommy and Billy. Wanda doesn’t have any scenes with Vision at all in this tale.

Meanwhile, Vision wakes up to find many of the S.W.O.R.D. agents inside the boundary now members of a circus. He meets up with Kat Dennings as Darcy and frees her from the spell she’s under. They soon work together in order to find out what’s going on and why all this is happening. 😐

Darcy tells Vision about him dying twice over in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and the events that have led up to the current situation. Wanda meanwhile sees that various parts of her house are constantly changing. It appears that Wanda is not in control of the world she has created for herself and Vision.

Outside in the real world, Teyonah Parris as Monica and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo meet up with S.W.O.R.D. personnel who don’t work for Josh Stamberg as Hayward as they try to find a way to enter the barrier set up by Wanda. They try to use a big vehicle in order to cross through the barrier.

When that doesn’t work, Monica decides to enter the barrier herself and she manages to enter through the static wall with seemingly heightened ‘vision’. Hmm. Monica gets to confront Wanda. It is really tense when Monica tries to persuade Wanda to stop doing what she’s doing in Westview. 😐

Agnes then shows up and tells Monica to leave before taking Wanda to her house. Wanda tries to look for her boys in the basement and she discovers a strange lair down there. It’s then revealed that Agnes is the one behind all that is happening in ‘WandaVision’ and she’s actually…Agatha Harkness!

Who is Agatha Harkness? She’s clearly someone who is important to Wanda in the Marvel Comics and happens to be a witch. I’m intrigued about what’s going on and why Agnes/Agatha has been controlling things for Wanda and Vision lately. Evan Peters as ‘Pietro’ may not be as he seems either.

‘Breaking the Fourth Wall’ is a fascinating and intriguing episode of ‘WandaVision’! I’ve no idea how the series is going to conclude and whether it’ll mean heartbreak for our two main stars Wanda and Vision. I hope things will turn out alright in the end as I can’t deny things have become really exciting.

Incidentally, Kathryn Hahn voiced a female version of Doc Ock in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’, didn’t you know? 😀

Stay tuned for my review on the eighth episode of ‘WandaVision’ next week.

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now

Tim. 🙂
