WandaVision did not have a single post-credits scene in its first six episodes, and now it is gotten them back-to-back. WandaVision episode Eight includes a scene in the course of the credit, identical to the one we had on WandaVision episode 7 final week. And it is a way more necessary one because it introduces what appears to be WandaVision’s second main villain. The first, after all, is Agatha (All Along) Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) who revealed her true self on the finish of WandaVision episode 7. With two villains probably now within the combine, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) has her work reduce out as we head into the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequence’ finale, WandaVision episode 9, subsequent week.
Spoilers forward for WandaVision episode 8 “Previously On”.
WandaVision episode Eight mid-credits scene
While the post-credits scene in WandaVision episode 7 was tied to the occasions of that episode, the one on WandaVision episode Eight has no bearing on the episode in any respect. Instead, it flows immediately from a tiny forgettable second in WandaVision episode 7. Here’s the related part from the WandaVision episode 7 recap:
Outside the [Westview] Hex, S.W.O.R.D.’s appearing director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) is on the brink of launch one thing, although WandaVision episode 7 by no means will get again to him for the remainder of the episode. This is clearly a table-setting transfer for the remaining episodes.
That’s precisely the case, as this WandaVision episode 7 scene purely existed as a tease for a future second, which finally ends up being the post-credits scene in WandaVision 8. Marvel may have simply taken it out as properly, and actually, it would not have impacted the MCU sequence in any respect.
A few minutes into the credit, WandaVision episode Eight take us again to New Jersey, with Hayward looking on the strengthened red-pulsating border of the Hex. A SWORD officer walks as much as Hayward and informs him that they’re “ready for launch”. This is a direct reference to Hayward’s remarks about getting ready to launch one thing. Hayward replies: “It’s about time.”
Hayward turns round and heads right into a tent, the place he says to a different SWORD officer: “We took this thing apart and put it back together again a million times. Tried every type of power supply under the sun, when all we needed was a little energy directly from the source.”
WandaVision episode Eight post-credits scene cuts to indicate the 1980s Stark Industries drone that Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) had despatched into the Westview Hex again in WandaVision episode 5, unaware that Hayward and Co. had weaponised it. Wanda had made it malfunction utilizing her magic, earlier than strolling out of the Hex and throwing it in SWORD’s faces. That’s labored out properly for Hayward, because the latent magic has come to their help.
Hayward then nods his head, signalling to his deputy to energy the “thing” up. The factor, because it seems, is Vision (Paul Bettany). He’s blue, or is that simply the lighting? It appears to be the lighting, as which means now we have a white Vision on our arms, who has a little bit of historical past within the comics.
The brief model: Vision’s silver and purple colors are a alternative, he is an android made out of vibranium in any case. So when SWORD decides to take him “apart and put him back together again a million times”, part of Vision is of course going to be misplaced within the course of — leaving this reanimated corpse a colourless android that purely exists as a weapon.
The post-credits scene in WandaVision episode Eight additionally confirms what really occurred to Vision’s physique. In WandaVision episode 5, Hayward claimed that Wanda stole it from their headquarters — he cleverly edited the CCTV footage to make his case — and introduced him again to life. That would violate Vision’s will and Sokovia Accords, which Hayward makes use of to accuse Wanda and paint her because the enemy.
But because it seems, Hayward has been mendacity all alongside. Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings) was the primary to catch onto Hayward’s plans when she cracked into his programs and located that Hayward had been monitoring Vision contained in the Hex.
It’s not Wanda however SWORD that has been violating Vision’s will and the Sokovia Accords. They have been attempting to convey him again on-line. As Hayward notes throughout WandaVision episode 8, Vision is a $three billion asset and probably the most sentient weapon ever made. Hayward and Co. do not see Vision as an individual, only a “thing” they’ll use for his or her functions.
And now he is on-line and prepared. Is there any of the unique Vision left in him? I doubt it. Will Wanda must kill Vision for a second time? Well not less than this time, she has one other Vision on her aspect. Something tells me this will probably be a heart-wrenching tragic second. Maybe the Westview Vision will sacrifice himself to take down White Vision? Or may their fates be intertwined? We’ll little question get our solutions within the WandaVision sequence finale.
