WandaVision Episode 6 is about the 1990s, but there are two details that do not belong to that decade and thus break the rule of the show’s timeline.
WandaVision Episode 6 continued the show’s rule of being done in the style of a sitcom from a specific decade, but there were two details that ended up breaking said timeline rule: Here’s what they are and why they break it. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has become the largest connected universe of superheroes on the big screen, and now that the Infinity Saga has come to a close, it’s ready to move on to Phase 4. What’s special about this new era is that won ‘It will not focus only on the big screen, and will also extend to TV / streaming, and starting this new phase is WandaVision.

WandaVision is set after the events of Avengers Endgame and centers on Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany), who now live idyllic suburban life in the town of Westview. However, things are not what they seem in Westview, and Vision is not only alive but the neighbors act strange and time passes differently. As the story progresses, viewers learn that something dark is going on with Westview and Wanda, and the truth could be much more complex than it appears. What have you done WandaVision Stand out from the rest of the MCU is that each episode is done in the style of sitcoms from different decades, with its setting, clothes, and more to match the decade, except for episode 6.
Titled “New Halloween Spooktacular!” WandaVision Episode 6 took viewers back to the 1990s, with Wanda and Vision’s twins Tommy and Billy taking the lead during the intro sequence and the first part of the episode. The intro of this episode was done in the style of Malcolm in the middle, and although this attracted fans, it also broke WandaVisiontimeline ruler. Created by Linwood Boomer, Malcolm in the middle it premiered on Fox in 2000 and ended in 2006 after seven seasons. The series was a great success and has a very special place in the hearts of those who followed it when it was on television, which is why I introduce it on WandaVision Episode 6 was very well received, but the series didn’t release in the 1990s, so it doesn’t fit the timeline rule.
The other “bug” that broke the timeline rule in WandaVision can be seen in the background when Quicksilver (Evan Peters) and Wanda are walking down the street with the twins. Behind Pietro and Wanda is a cinema, and the billboard lists the two films shown there: The parent trap Y The Incredibles. The parent trap was released in 1998 so it still fits the decade, but The Incredibles It didn’t come until 2004, and there is a significant gap between the two films. For a show that, until now, has been paying close attention to the smallest detail (and where nothing seems to be a coincidence), it seems strange that they included two references to pop culture products of the following decade. This could be somewhat justified by saying that the episode is not only about the 1990s, but also about the early 2000s, although the cinema it shows The parent trap Y The Incredibles it is still disabled; thematically, however, they fit WandaVision, as The parent trap it’s about changing identities (and accents, like Pietro and Wanda) and The Incredibles it’s about superheroes.
These details could also find an explanation in which Wanda begins to break down and therefore does not pay attention to the details, as she has already shown signs of recklessness like when she did not mind showing her powers in front of Agnes in episode 5. While you are here references and easter eggs from Malcolm in the middle Y The Incredibles they do not ruin the episode or affect the story, they inevitably stand out, and as WandaVision it’s packed with clues and more, it wouldn’t be surprising if these “mistakes” end up leading to something bigger.
