It really WAS all Wanda, then? Interesting that they're finally confirming that her powers really are magical, and that it's chaos magic (as I understand it this is different to the sort of magic that Doctor Strange uses, which can be learned). Also that she had powers before Hydra did anything to her! Agatha knew what the Scarlet Witch was, her tone seemed to imply it's something very massive and dangerous - wondering if Agatha's trying to stop Wanda for the greater good, or she just wants her power.

That Vision in the mid-credits scene is probably going to be destroyed, right? :(

Well that’s the real vision, she never stole his body. I like how they made her magical and moved away from science experiment. Can’t wait for them to retcon her father.

Didn't he say it was someone he's always wanted to work with? Surely not, but amazing if he actually WAS talking about himself :D

THE SCARLET WITCH :disco:

I’m really not prepared for this to be over. I did scream at withered goth Hydra Wanda looking the double of her haunted sisters :D

It is! I can't believe we won't hear anything about Wanda again for a whole year until the next Dr. Strange movie :(

I hope we get a big fat episode lasting at least 60 minutes :evil: so:

Wanda can defeat Agnes and rescue her boys
We need to know who the fuck Ralph is
Where is Dottie and why is she the only person in town Agnes sort of fears?
Monica using her powers properly, maybe to help Wanda defeat Agatha
Bring closure to this FIETRO guy.

That was a pretty satisfying ending! LOL at Westview apparently completely going back to normal EXCEPT that Agnes will be there acting like a sitcom neighbour :D The reveal of the true Scarlet Witch was obviously an amazing moment, and the costume was everything I wanted and more :disco: Presumably that post-credits scene tells us quite a bit about her motivations next time she's due to show up. White Vision getting his memories back makes me wonder whether we'll see him slowly develop into who he was before, or will he stay as a more robotic character without the mind stone?

They really do need to have an overhaul of the Universal Backlot, aka Hill Valley. It’s far too recognisable in so many things.

That was heartbreaking. Poor Wanda, she needs to bring back her gay & bisexual sons ASAP!

The costume was everything, I kinda love her headpiece was like Psylocke’s psychic butterfly :disco:

Scream that Monica is heading into SECRET INVASION :disco:

I’m already waiting for Agatha’s HI HUN! memes tomorrow and I’ll live for them ALL!

oh glad not just me who got a bit emotional (doesn’t take much these days)
Had a lump in my throat the whole last bit.
This really was a brilliantly written series just proves how much you can achieve in a tv series than a film

I thought things got kinda PANTO towards the end there with Agatha. I enjoyed the last couple of episodes but it was all just a bit corny for me.

I've seen it now @COB if you want to reinstate the avi :side-eye:

It was alright. Didn’t think it was groundbreaking. I feel like I watch these shows/movies to see what will come next.

Do I have to have seen any Marvel movies to watch it? Because I definitely haven't. :D
Not absolutely essential, but a bit of previous knowledge would definitely help...

If you don't mind being spoiled for what's come before (and what you clearly have little interest in :side-eye:), maybe give this a watch:

Some things probably won't make a lot of sense if you haven't seen the movies, but Disney+ do have a thing called Marvel Legends which are basically extended 'previously on' compilations about the main characters of their new shows, so you could give those a try (currently they have one for Wanda and one for Vision, I believe).

OK I watched this finally, the first few episodes were intriguing but I didn't get into bingeing until the Geraldine reveal, then I just shotgunned the whole lot yesterday, apart from the final episode today.
I wish I had been watching it as it came out though, because the antagonist had already been spoiled quite thoroughly by the internet (IN SONG FORM!).

It did sort of put me in mind of latter-day Buffy - the small town, a sort of Dark Willow storyline. So I loved that. And of course there was Anya!

Basically I am an MCU lover, and this was interesting (even if it sort of felt like the lead-in to more movies), I guess it's sort of a reboot origin story isn't it?

A few loose ends dangled that I felt were just sort of left. The non-event of Fietro was basically OMG IS THIS HAPPENING at the first reveal, to ... oh, so nothing? Even though it's Evan whatsit? I read on Wikipedia that it was "a nod" to his role in X-Men, but I thought that was a bit of a mislead (for no gain) in a show about a reality warper post-XMen acquisition...

Also what happened to the beekeeper man, he wasn't thrown out? Considering Wanda didn't want to hurt or kill anyone, it felt a bit odd that he was just vanished.

Love Monica and the hodgepodge of minor characters from other movies (thing from Thor, whatshisname from Ant Man)

Anyway good stuff
