The latest episode of WandaVision surpassed Undead Vision when an explosion from the past gave fans the scariest version of the robot.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for WandaVision Episode 5, “In a very special episode …”, now broadcast on Disney +.
In WandaVision, fans thought they had already caught a glimpse of the most horrifying version of Vision when he appeared as the dead shell that Thanos left in Wakanda in Avengers: Infinity War after Wanda lost control of the Westview bubble she created.
However, in the opening credits of Episode 5, “In a Very Special Episode …”, the Disney + series shakes things up even more by showing viewers an even scarier version of the hero.

Episode 5 centers on Wanda and Vision living a suburban life in the ’80s, as Monica, Jimmy, Darcy, and the sinister SWORD director Hayward try to discern if Wanda is a real threat. But as the show goes into another sitcom, this time in the style of Growing pains Y Full house, things get really weird. As the show provides photos of Wanda and Vision’s family throughout the years in this false reality, there are some jarring images of Vision in his fabricated “youth”.
For starters, there’s Baby Vision, which is as cute as can be. But while surrounded by teddy bears and donning a cute sweater, the baby seems trapped and really uncomfortable, which seems to affect Vision’s overall feelings about Westview. There is another image showing Vision in what appears to be a high school, dressed in black and working on a blackboard. His outfit and hat are odd to say the least, but this version of the character has a somewhat human face that seems reminiscent of Paul Bettany.
However, it is the child’s Vision that leaves an indelible mark. This version of the hero looks slightly older than a toddler, and his robotic facial expression, teeth, and eyes paint something truly haunting. While he looks quaint in his clothes, he appears to have an inorganic smile that is as fake as Westview. This image outperforms the others because while some fans were hoping to see Undead Vision and could cope with what they witnessed in Infinity war, no one was prepared to process a fabricated backstory for the synth that has terrifying implications.
Written by Jac Schaeffer and directed by Matt Shakman, WandaVision stars Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Paul Bettany as Vision, Randall Park as Agent Jimmy Woo, Kat Dennings as Darcy Lewis, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau and Kathryn Hahn like Agnes. New episodes air Fridays on Disney +.
