Billy and Tommy’s ability to resist Wanda’s magic in WandaVision may mean that their version of Westview is especially horrible.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for WandaVision Episode 5, “In a very special episode …”, now broadcast on Disney +.
While WandaVision It has generally focused on its titular power partner, now there are another couple on the scene and they are changing the dynamics of the show in major ways. In their first full episode, “In a Very Special Episode …”, twins Billy and Tommy prove that there is more to them than meets the eye, as they are capable of resisting Wanda’s magic and seem incredibly aware of what is happening. It is unsettling to see children with this kind of consciousness, but the reality of Westview could be worse for them than it seems.

The twins begin the episode crying, which Wanda’s magic cannot stop. Soon, they seemingly age in response to what is happening and to their own goals. However, they can do it even though Wanda doesn’t. to wish suddenly grow old From there, things get weirder, as they show some awareness of their reality and situation after the death of their dog, Sparky. Standing in Agnes’s yard, the twins plead with Wanda to “fix the dead,” which on the surface is supposed to refer to Sparky. Yet the way they speak makes it seem like they mean Plus than just Sparky.
If the twins can see beyond Wanda’s magic, then Billy and Tommy may have seen some horrifying things in Westview. An earlier episode of WandaVision, for example, indicated that Westview’s version of Vision actually uses the dead and destroyed body of the synth. As such, Billy and Tommy may experience the gray, mutilated version of their father, or at least have seen it at some point. The implications of this, then, are that they could have been crying as children because they were able to see this horrible version of Vision and thus were aware of Wanda’s ability to hide her father’s horrible appearance when they spoke to her more. late.
Billy and Tommy have also seen some of the ugliest things the outside world has to offer. If Wanda’s magic doesn’t work on them, it’s unlikely that she’ll be able to control her memories, like everything else in Westview does. That means they can remember the attack launched against them by Director Hayward, which would be absolutely a traumatic experience for the children, as well as the deadly appearance of their father.
In just their first 48 hours of existence, these children have had to face some of the most important questions in mortal life. It is a scary situation for anyone, especially innocent children with no experience in life. If Billy and Tommy are real, by the time they are teenagers, they will be on their way to being traumatized for life. In many ways, this resembles the trauma that Wanda herself has endured. And if she’s not the one behind Westview, Wanda may not be in control to prevent that cycle from continuing.
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.
