WARNING: The following contains spoilers for WandaVision Episode 5., “In a very special episode …”, now broadcast on Disney +.
At the end of WandaVisionIn the fifth episode, everyone from SWORD director Hayward (Josh Stamberg) to Vision (Paul Bettany) seems convinced that Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) is the one who controls Westview, especially after SWORD agent Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) claimed that this is what is happening. Even though things are looking bad for Wanda, however, there is evidence in WandaVision to suggest that she’s not the one in control of Westview.

Tommy and Billy grow old against Wanda’s wishes
After finding out that she is pregnant, Wanda and Vision are amazed at the speed at which her pregnancy is progressing, and she doesn’t seem to know that she is having twins. From there, while they have trouble getting their newborn children to sleep, Wanda and Vision try everything: read to them, rock their cribs, and give them pacifiers. But nothing helps. Wanda even tries to use her powers to put them to sleep, expressing confusion when this doesn’t work. Only when Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) arrives, having heard the babies cry from outside, and tries to rock them herself, do they calm down. Out of nowhere, the twins age to five, which surprises Wanda and Vision, but not Agnes. Later, despite Wanda’s wishes, they grow old again to ten years old.
In addition to this lack of control over her twins, there is also evidence that Wanda really wants her children to age naturally. WandaVisionThe opening credits, for example, feature photos of the twins. Between the ages they are on the show, indicating that Wanda wanted the opportunity to experience them growing normally.
Agnes ‘breaks character’ by WandaVision
When trying to convince Wanda and Vision to let her help with the twins, Agnes “breaks character”, stopping the conversation in her tracks to ask Wanda if she should start the scene over, as if she were the director. Other folks at Westview have wavered before, but never in such a direct way. This also confuses Wanda and arouses Vision’s suspicions. If Wanda was really directing or controlling the scene, there is no reason for Agnes to risk exposing her and her plan.
The twins’ dog appears and disappears without Wanda’s knowledge
Wanda is also surprised by the appearance of the dog Sparky. Is might They have been fabricated to create a sitcom tension, but it seems more likely that someone, or something, will put the dog in the way of the twins. Wanda doesn’t seem to have any control over Sparky either. She can’t stop him from running out of the house or keep him from dying. It also seems strange that Wanda gave a dog to her beloved children and then immediately took it away.
However, Agnes appears to have a relationship with Sparky. When the dog appears, Agnes appears with a doghouse, unfazed by what happened. Later, Agnes finds Sparky, his azalea bushes have killed him. Agnes then expresses curiosity and interest that Wanda can potentially bring things to life.
Vision can detect inconsistencies in Wanda’s reality
Agnes’ character also contradicts what happens when Vision enters Norm’s (Asif Ali) mind for answers. Norm doesn’t just casually break character. He panics and immediately starts asking frantic questions about his real life and the real world. She also makes reference to “she” being on her mind, which matches Monica’s earlier description of being at Westview and feeling Wanda on her mind. However, Norm never uses a proper name. If Wanda were in control of Westview, it seems unlikely that she would allow Vision to start questioning things or give her the ability to get into people’s real minds.
After questioning Norm, Vision confronts Wanda about how she controls everything, hurts people; expresses genuine existential angst over the fact that he doesn’t remember anything before Westview. They fight over their doubts, but once Wanda softens and expresses her love, they move on to a quiet and disappointed conversation on the couch. However, there is no reason why Wanda wants to fight Vision, as that greatly complicates things.
Wanda does not anticipate the return of Pietro
Finally, there is Pietro’s (Evan Peters) surprise appearance at the end of “In a Very Special Episode …” After the argument between Wanda and Vision, Pietro appears at the door, but Wanda insists that he did not interrupt their discussion. with Vision making someone appear. While he doubts this, Wanda looks genuinely surprised to see Pietro, especially since he’s not his Pietro. Instead, it’s been recast and acts like no die at the hands of Ultron. His death was deeply traumatic for Wanda as well, and even remembering Pietro caused the Avenger to drive Monica out of Westview, so it seems unlikely that she actually chose to bring him back this way.
While there are many potential explanations for these various cases, there are a number of good indications that there is something plus in Westview. Although it is unclear what or who that being could be at this time, Wanda may further Be under your control as you frame yourself as Westview’s mastermind.
