The level of detail in every single WandaVision episode is just incredible.
First, WandaVision brilliantly and beautifully showcases Wanda going through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
The last four digits of the phone number on the for sale sign outside of Wanda and Vision’s home are “0125,” which could correspond to Avengers #125, which is actually when the Avengers come together to fight Thanos.
When Vision carries Wanda into their house in “Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience,” he almost trips over a chair, which is a nod to The Dick Van Dyke Show and how Rob always tripped over the ottoman in the opening credits.
When Wanda accidentally hits Vision in the head with a plate, she remarks that he has an “indestructible” head. This is a reference to how Vision’s head wasn’t indestructible when Thanos ripped the Mind Stone from his skull in Infinity War.
The wine bottle that Wanda magically pours reads “Maison Du Mépris,” which in French means “House of Contempt,” and it has a large “M” logo. This is a nod to the iconic House of M comic books.
Before we even know that S.W.O.R.D. is on the outside of Westview watching Wanda, you can see the S.W.O.R.D. logo at the very end of Episode 1, and you can spot it on the helicopter Wanda finds in the bushes in Episode 2.
The opening credits of “Don’t Touch That Dial” are a direct nod to the iconic credits from Bewitched.
When Vision phases through the floor during these opening credits, if you pause super fast, you can see what looks like Grim Reaper’s helmet — in Tom King’s Vision, Vision fights Grim Reaper.
You can spot ads for “Bova milk” and “Auntie A’s kitty litter” here. The milk ad is a nod to Bova, an evolved cow who was with Wanda and Pietro’s mom when she gave birth to them in the comics. And Auntie A is a perfect nod to Agatha Harkness.
The only color seen in both black-and-white episodes is red, which is a reference to the color associated with Wanda’s powers and Chaos Magic.
Actually, throughout WandaVision, red is a very important color because of it’s association with Scarlet Witch. During the flashbacks to Wanda’s childhood in Episode 8, you can see that the TV is red, the couch has shades of red in the pattern, and Wanda is wearing a red hoodie.
In the advertisement in Episode 2, the watch’s name is a reference to Wolfgang von Strucker, who used Loki’s scepter and experimented on Wanda and Pietro. You can also see that the watch is made by Hydra.
The colorful WandaVision opening credits in “Now In Color” are a nod to the opening credits from The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
The “Simser” paint cans are a reference to Jeremy Simser, who is a storyboard artist on WandaVision, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and She-Hulk.
When Vision tells Wanda he wants to name their child Billy, he quotes William Shakespeare’s play As You Like It, and the quote relates to WandaVision because Wanda created this reality and Vision is merely a “player” in it.
The doll Vision uses to practice changing diapers looks just like Cindy’s beloved Kitty Karry-All doll from The Brady Bunch.
This is just a great continuity detail, but in Episode 3, Wanda is seen cutting up the pineapple that Agnes/Agatha hilariously brought over during Episode 1.
In “Now In Color,” Vision says that he hopes Billy is like his mother, which foreshadows that Wanda and Vision’s son Billy has magical abilities like Wanda.
When Monica re-materializes in the beginning of Episode 4, you can hear moments from Captain Marvel. Namely, Maria saying that she can’t leave Monica and go to space, Carol saying that Maria has one of the best kids, and Carol calling Monica by her nickname.
When Monica walks into S.W.O.R.D., you can see that one of the news channels talking about “The Blip” is WHiH World News, which is a news network that has been used throughout the MCU movies and TV shows.
You can spot a plaque inside S.W.O.R.D. honoring Maria Rambeau, and you can see that she still went by her nickname “Photon.”
While at S.W.O.R.D. with Monica, Hayward mentions that they are focusing on “nanotech,” which is the technology that Tony Stark uses for his new Iron Man suit in Infinity War.
Probably my favorite detail/Easter egg is when Monica meets Jimmy Woo, and Jimmy uses the card trick that he wanted Scott to teach him in Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Monica’s S.W.O.R.D. vehicle has the numbers “8512” on it, which could be a reference to the Vision and the Scarlet Witch 12-issue limited series comic books that started in 1985. In fact, WandaVision pulled some similar plot points from these comics, namely the twins.
The drone Monica uses to try and see into Westview has the number “57” on it, and Vision makes his first ever appearance in the Marvel comics during Avengers Issue #57. Also, the drone’s colors match Captain Marvel’s suit.
When explaining how she found Wanda’s TV signal, Darcy says she picked up radiation that dates back to the Big Bang. If you recall, Wanda got her powers from the Mind Stone, which was created during the Big Bang.
Long before we got the official Agatha Harkness reveal, you can see that “Agnes” was the only Westview resident who wasn’t identified by S.W.O.R.D. She also doesn’t have a drivers license attached to her file like everyone else.
The names we see at the end of this episode are actually names of people who work on WandaVision in real life.
In “On a Very Special Episode…” Vision wears a green plaid shirt, which is an homage to The Vision comics by Tom King where Vision wears the same thing.
Vision tries to calm Billy down by reading Charles Darwin’s The Descent of Man, which is about evolution, and throughout the episode, Billy and Tommy are constantly evolving and growing up.
When Agnes arrives at Wanda and Vision’s to help with Billy and Tommy, she refers to herself as “Aunty Agnes.” In the comic books, Agatha Harkness is often referred to as “Aunt Agatha.”
The opening credits for Episode 5 feature a picnic, which is similar to the one from the Full House opening credits, and of course, Elizabeth Olsen basically grew up on the set of Full House.
The number “113” appears several times in WandaVision. First, you can spot it when Jimmy is going through Wanda’s history. Then, you can see it on one of Hayward’s files. This could be a nod to Avengers Issue #113, which features Wanda and Vision on the cover, and Wanda saying she’s going to make the world pay for Vision’s death.
If you look closely, you can spot “A113” on one of the files about Wanda. A113 is a classic Pixar Easter egg, and it’s hidden in every Pixar movie.
In Episode 5, Jimmy mentions that Wanda resurrecting Vision’s body is a direct violation of the Sokovia Accords. Of course, the Sokovia Accords were a massive part of Captain America: Civil War and were a direct reaction to Wanda using her powers in Lagos.
If you look closely, the “B” on the fridge looks like a bear, and in the comics, Wanda’s nickname for Billy is “Billy Bear.”
Billy and Tommy beg Wanda and Vision to let them keep Sparky, and in the comic books, Sparky is actually a green dog that Vision creates for his family. Also, just like in the show, Sparky dies in the comics, however Wanda is able to bring him back with the help of Tony Stark.
The commercial in Episode 5 is for Lagos paper towels, which is a reference to Lagos, Nigeria, where Wanda accidentally destroyed an entire building filled with people in Captain America: Civil War.
Just like Malcolm on Malcolm in the Middle, Billy and Tommy break the fourth wall throughout Episode 6 and talk directly to viewers.
Of course, Wanda, Vision, Fake Pietro, Tommy, and Billy’s Halloween costumes are a brilliant and utterly perfect nod to all of their original superhero outfits in the Marvel comics.
While trick-or-treating, “Pietro” tells Billy and Tommy to “unleash hell, demon spawn.” In the comics, Billy and Tommy were created using parts of Mephisto’s soul, and Mephisto is Marvel’s version of the devil.
Tommy refers to “Pietro” using his speed as “kick-ass,” and then Wanda repeats the phrase. This is a nod to the movie Kick-Ass, which starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Evan Peters, aka both versions of Pietro.
The Incredibles and The Parent Trap are both playing at the movie theater during the Halloween episode. The Incredibles is a movie about a superhero family, like Wanda, Vision, Billy, and Tommy. And The Parent Trap is about two long-lost twins reuniting, like Wanda and this version of Pietro.
When Darcy emails Hayward’s Cataract plans, you can see the names “James Gadd” and “James Alexander” as email options. James Gadd works in post-production at Marvel Studios, and James Alexander is a visual effects producer on WandaVision.
After Wanda blasts Fake Pietro, you can see one of the gravestone decorations reads “Janell Sammelman.” Janell is a first assistant director on WandaVision.
When Wanda moves the borders of The Hex in order to save Vision, she turns S.W.O.R.D. headquarters into a circus. In the comic books, there’s actually a plot point where Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Hawkeye join the circus.
In “Breaking the Fourth Wall,” while Wanda is lying in bed, you can see that the shapes on her comforter are hexagons, which is a nod to the shape of Westview’s town limits, aka The Hex.
In Episode 7, Wanda starts talking to a cameraperson and breaking the fourth wall, which is a nod to Modern Family. Also, Wanda and Vision’s living room resembles Phil and Claire’s from Modern Family.
The colors of Tommy and Billy’s clothes throughout the series are a nod to the colors of their superhero costumes in the comic books. Tommy always wears green, while Billy’s outfit is red.
The only way to really notice this detail is if you watch with the subtitles on, but the radio station Wanda is listening to is W.N.D.A., a nod to her own name.
At one point, Wanda eats Sugar Snaps cereal, which is a reference to Thanos’s snap from Avengers: Infinity War.
During the opening credits, Wanda’s license plate features the numbers “122822,” which actually stands for Dec. 28, 1922, which was Stan Lee’s birthday.
When Wanda’s reality inside the house begins to crack, you can see that the stairs briefly revert back to The Brady Bunch–style stairs from Episode 3, and you can spot the plant that Agnes gave to Wanda during Episode 1.
And, you can also see a glimpse of the real Westview when the reality is glitching, and the reason the walls disappear is because we later learn that Wanda and Vision’s house doesn’t exist, it’s just an empty lot.
The commercial for Nexus in Episode 7 is actually super important. In the comics, there is the idea of the Nexus of All Realities, which is a gateway that you can use to get to any and all possible realities.
Also in the Marvel comics, there is the idea of “Nexus Beings,” who are individuals who can affect probability and the future. Vision and Wanda are both considered Nexus Beings. Nexus Beings are also watched closely by the Time Variance Authority, who will be appearing in Loki.
And, Nexus could refer to the NEXUS Internet Hub, which was seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron when Tony searched the internet to find J.A.R.V.I.S. after his run in with Ultron.
If you look closely, you can see that Wanda appears to take one of the Nexus pills.
After Monica enters Westview, she’s now able to see different forms of energy. In the comic books, Monica’s main power is that she is able to control and transform herself into energy.
The super-catchy opening credits for “Agatha All Along” are a nod to The Munsters.
In Episode 8, we learn that Agatha was a witch during the Salem Witch Trials, and in the comics, Agatha settles in Salem and tries to start her own coven where witches can practice magic freely.
Of course, the brooch Agatha takes from her mother is the one she was wearing in every episode of WandaVision. The brooch is a direct nod to Agatha’s comic book outfit.
When Agatha tells Wanda that her thoughts “aren’t available to her,” this connects to why Billy said Agatha was “quiet” in Episode 7. This is also a nod to Billy having the same powers as Wanda.
You can see that Agatha’s runes are inside a hexagon, which is a nod to the shape of Westview’s town limits, aka The Hex.
The blinking red light on the Stark Industries bomb connects back to the commercial in Episode 1, when the only thing in color was the blinking red light on the Stark Industries toaster.
The Dick Van Dyke episode that Wanda chooses to watch in the flashback is “It May Look Like a Walnut.” The entire episode is basically a dream Rob has after watching a scary sci-fi movie.
You can see that Wanda is wearing the exact outfit she was wearing in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier post-credit scene, which is when we first met her.
In the flashback to Wanda and Vision at the Avengers compound, Vision phasing through the wall is a nod to a moment in Captain America: Civil War where Vision does the same thing.
When Wanda describes her grief to Vision in a flashback, it’s almost exactly how Monica describes what she was feeling inside The Hex during Episode 5. Then, in the finale, we learn that all of the Westview residents have been feeling Wanda’s grief, which explains why Monica felt that way too.
Wanda’s heartbreaking line about not being able to feel Vision anymore is a direct nod to their first and final conversations in Avengers: Infinity War.
When Wanda drives through the real Westview you can spot several residents we’ve come to know, and you can see that Wanda let them live their dreams in her version of Westview.
If you look closely, Wanda’s license plate says “Excelsior,” which is a nod to Stan Lee’s iconic motto.
The heart on the property deed for Wanda and Vision’s house explains why the heart on the calendar in Episode 1 was so important. In the episode, the heart on the calendar ultimately marked Wanda and Vision’s anniversary too.
When Wanda falls to the ground while standing in what would’ve been her home with Vision, we previously saw a flash of this moment in Episode 5 when Monica was explaining her time in The Hex.
Wanda’s magic exploding while she grieves Vision is reminiscent of what happened to her in Avengers: Age of Ultron after Pietro’s death.
When Agatha tells Wanda that she takes magic from people who are “undeserving.” This leads back to the Yo-Magic commercial in Episode 6 where the shark represented someone who is “snacking” on Wanda’s magic.
Wanda levitating a car and throwing it at Agatha is something she’s done before. In Civil War, she threw a bunch of cars at Iron Man.
Wanda looking under the car and just seeing Agatha’s boots is a direct nod to Dorothy’s house crushing the Wicked Witch of the East in The Wizard of Oz.
Wanda meeting White Vision is a moment that is directly taken from Avengers West Coast Issue #45. In the comics, Wanda meets White Vision and although he knows her name, she immediately learns that he doesn’t have an “emotional connection” to her anymore.
When White Vision and Vision are fighting, White Vision tries to get the Mind Stone out of Vision’s head just like Thanos did, only this time, Vision phases right through White Vision’s hand.
When Jimmy escapes from his handcuffs, he says, “Flourish,” which is exactly what Vision said during the magic show in Episode 2. Clearly, Jimmy also loves WandaVision like Darcy.
I feel like it’s important to point out that in the comics, the Darkhold was used by Chthon, an Elder God, who used Wanda as a pawn when he wanted to invade Earth.
Agatha mentions the “Sorcerer Supreme” when talking to Wanda about her powers. The Sorcerer Supreme was first mentioned in Doctor Strange by Wong when he’s explaining things.
Wanda creating a force field to protect Vision, Billy, and Tommy from Agatha’s powers is a direct nod to one of Scarlet Witch’s (many) powers in the comic books.
Wanda, Vision, Billy, and Tommy preparing to fight S.W.O.R.D. and Agatha is seemingly a nod to the moment in The Incredibles when the Parrs prepare to fight Syndrome and his robots.
When White Vision gets Vision’s memories, you can spot the moment when Wanda comes out of the building and uses her powers in Age of Ultron after Clint’s pep talk. Vision wasn’t there for that moment in the movie, which probably means Wanda told him about it.
After White Vision awakens with Vision’s memories, he says, “I am Vision,” which is a nod to Tony Stark’s iconic “I am Iron Man,” which essentially started the entire MCU journey we’ve been on.
Wanda manipulates Agatha’s mind and her memory, which is what Wanda did to The Avengers in Age of Ultron.
While in Agatha’s memory, the outline of Wanda’s magic on her head matches her Scarlet Witch costume from the comics.
Wanda thanks Agatha for the “lesson” about runes, and this is such a great nod to the fact that in the comics, Agatha trains Scarlet Witch and teaches her how to control her Chaos Magic.
The way Wanda got her Scarlet Witch costume for the first time is exactly like Wanda’s vision from Episode 8 when she came in contact with the Mind Stone.
You can see that Oz the Great and Powerful is playing at the movie theater in Westview.
When Wanda finally accepts that she has to say goodbye to Vision, Vision says, “It’s time.” This mirrors their final conversation in Infinity War when Vision realizes that Wanda has to destroy the Mind Stone.
As Wanda’s magic slowly leaves Westview, you can see that the marquee at the movie theater says “Tannhauser Gate,” which I’m hoping is a nod to Roy’s monologue from when he’s about to die in Blade Runner.
In “The Series Finale,” Wanda explains that this version of Vision is the part of the Mind Stone that lives in her, and this is HUGE for the MCU because even though the Infinity Stones were destroyed, this means part of its power will always be within Wanda.
WandaVision is the first time “witches” have been introduced in the MCU, but in Spider-Man: Far From Home witches are alluded to a lot when Mysterio arrives. Far From Home is set after WandaVision, so this is a brilliant detail now.
In the comics, Wanda has the ability to alter anything into something else and she’s used this ability to change her clothes instantly, which is what we see at the end when she’s suddenly wearing her Scarlet Witch outfit.
When a Skrull meets with Monica and says she was sent by an “old friend of your mother’s” and they need to meet him in space. Based on the Spider-Man: Far From Home post-credit scene, we know that Nick Fury is in space with some Skrulls.
And finally, we see Wanda doing the same astral projection reading technique that Doctor Strange uses in order to read the Darkhold. Also, the last voices we hear are Billy and Tommy’s, so I’m going with Wanda is going to figure out how to bring them back, which happens in the comics.
