WARNING: The following contains spoilers for WandaVision Episode 7, “Breaking the Fourth Wall”, now airing on Disney +.

A lot happened in WandaVision this past week, including the twins assuming their powers, Vision’s attempt to escape the Westview anomaly, and Wanda expanding said anomaly to protect her family. And while the reality of The Hex’s sitcom continues to advance in time, having reached the mockumentary period of the 2000s, reality is beginning to unravel around the Scarlet Witch in many different ways.

At the beginning of “Breaking the Fourth Wall”, a light song awakens us next to Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), who does not find Vision next to her in bed. True to the episode title, we talk about her as she reflects on the ending of the previous episode, where she expanded the Westview anomaly to save her husband. As “punishment” for her actions, she is taking a self-inflicted home vacation, a full 24 hours just for herself.

When Wanda walks downstairs, ignoring the fights of her sons, Billy and Tommy (Julian Hilliard and Jett Klyne), she discovers that the elements around her appear to travel back in time. All the product placement food around you morphs, like a carton of milk warping into an old-fashioned milk bottle. Then they take us to the opening credits straight from The office, with several images of Wanda’s name. A few noteworthy visuals are highlighted, including a series of letters that spell out “I know what you did, Wanda” and a calendar with a heart around the date of Friday the 10th, which evokes WandaVisionIt is the first episode.

From there, the episode boils down to eight miles outside of Westview, when SWORD and Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) established a new base of operations to continue their mission. The director is more committed than ever to launching as soon as possible. Meanwhile, Vision (Paul Bettany) wakes up in front of a circus, the results of SWORD and his agents are transformed by the expansion of the anomaly. The synth is mistaken for a clown and teamed up with escape artist Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings). Although Vision remembers seeing her during his escape attempt the night before, she knows nothing of it and rejects him, thinking that he is flirting with her.

Surprisingly, Wanda is casual about Vision’s disappearance, reflecting, “If he doesn’t want to be here, there’s nothing he can do about it.” The twins mention what Pietro said in the previous episode about Vision’s previous death. Wanda responds that he is not her uncle, admitting that she has no answers and that “everything doesn’t make sense”. His upset is interrupted by Agnes (Kathryn Hahn), who drags the boys over to help “save” Wanda. Although Wanda is now alone, her vacation at home is far from relaxing as things continue to transform around her. Despite how much you can say to the camera, it’s far from okay.

Back on the outskirts of Westview, Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) and Agent Woo (Randall Park) head to meet Monica’s contact. Woo receives the information that Darcy found in the last episode about a SWORD project called “Cataract” that was not intended to dismantle Vision, but to bring it back online. The organization’s mission is clear now: they want their sensitive weapon back. The two meet up with the Army, bringing in a giant rover that can hopefully penetrate “The Hex.”

At the circus, Darcy continues to deny Vision’s pleas for help, until he is forced to use his powers to regain his old self. The two escape the sideshow, hijacking a food truck. Meanwhile, Wanda’s house begins to vibrate, as it is redecorated. Wanda laments on camera for not being able to fix things, when an off-screen interviewer surprisingly replies, “Do you think maybe this is what you deserve?” It has become very clear: Wanda is losing control of her reality.

WandaVisionThis week’s commercial takes us to a boring commercial for antidepressants for Nexus, a red and yellow pill that “anchors you back to your reality, or the reality of your choice.” At Agnes’s house, Billy celebrates the fact that things are quiet, including Agnes. Although the neighbor is disturbed by this observation, she assures the children that their mother is fine.

Monica dresses in all the astronaut finery, ready to go inside and get Darcy back. She charges the rover at the anomaly with full force, only for the hex to hit her back. Monica is able to get out just before the vehicle is partially rewritten into a van and spits again. Despite the setback, Monica is confident that she will be able to get ahead.

We then get a mind-blowing sequence of her walking through the hex, while many appropriate versions of her time period walk alongside her. With the words of his mother, Nick Fury, and Captain Marvel echoing in his head, his eyes suddenly glow blue and he passes to the other side. His new eyes give him a different view of the world as he sees the energy emanating from nearby power lines.

At the food truck, Darcy catches up with Vision at the birth of Avengers: Age of Ultron and his death of Avengers: Infinity War. The two run into a series of obstacles on the way home, which Vision feels are his wife’s doing. Despite not having many answers, Darcy tells the synth that the love he and Wanda have is real and undeniable.

Monica finds Wanda at home, trying to tell her what she just found out about SWORD, but a furious Wanda interrupts her, holding her in the air. Monica surprisingly recovers from the fall, begging Wanda not to let Hayward make her the villain. He slowly approaches Wanda, sympathizing with losing the person closest to her. But unlike the Scarlet Witch, she doesn’t want to change or undo the pain, “because it’s my truth.” Just when it looks like Monica is making a breakthrough, Agnes interrupts the conversation and makes Wanda leave.

As Darcy and Vision continue to wait for the passing workers and schoolchildren, the latter interrupts the process and realizes that he can simply fly back to his family. Agnes sits Wanda in her house, where she watches some unpleasant images, including a fly in the curtain and I gabba gabba! on television. He heads to the dark basement to search for the boys, instead of finding a creeper-covered passageway. It leads to a chamber containing cabinets filled with bones, as well as a book covered in gold.

Agnes then walks in, petting her rabbit malevolently and touting her powers. Then she finally reveals her real name: Agatha Harkness. Then we get a sequence, complete with the main theme, called “Agatha All Along.” It turns out that she was behind various events in the series, including the events of Episode 2’s magic show, Neighbor Herb’s weirdness in Episode 3, the death of the dog Sparky, and Pietro’s appearance in the world. She is even the director behind the camera for this episode.

For the first time in WandaVision, we go to the full Marvel Cinematic Universe and end the episode with a post-credits scene. Monica investigates Agatha’s house, only to open the basement doors and find vines pulsing with purple magic. Suddenly, he meets a Pietro (Evan Peters) promoting a beanie and says, “Snooper is going to snoop.” And with a Vision trapped, newly empowered Monica, magical puppet master Agnes, and SWORD invading the anomaly, things seem to be pretty explosive for the final two episodes.

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 airing Fridays on Disney +.
