Wanda Maximoff is going to make me cry every week, huh?
First, the colorful WandaVision opening credits are a nod to the opening credits from The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
And the final title card in the opening credits is inspired by The Brady Bunch and the iconic tiles.
In Episode 3, Wanda and Vision’s house now looks just like the house from The Brady Bunch, complete with the staircase.
Also, in the opening credits, Vision builds a swing set in the backyard, which is similar to the one the Brady kids had on The Brady Bunch.
The department store that Wanda and Vision go to in the opening credits could be named after Deidre Wentworth from the Marvel comics.
Now, if we’re going with the theory that Wanda has created this reality to cope with Vision’s death (and even Pietro’s death), Vision suddenly having super speed is likely a nod to Pietro and his powers.
The “Simser” paint cans are a nod 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 even relates to WandaVision because Wanda has likely created this reality and Vision is merely a “player” in it.
The doll Vision uses to practice changing diapers looks like Cindy’s beloved Kitty Karry-All doll from The Brady Bunch.
If you look closely, you can spot “Coy” soap behind Wanda while she’s in the kitchen. In Episode 1, Coy soap was advertised on the back of the magazine Agnes was reading to Wanda.
Also, this is just a great continuity detail, but Wanda is cutting up the pineapple that Agnes hilariously brought over during Episode 1.
One of the best details that continues to highlight Wanda creating and manipulating this reality is when time skips backward/rewinds after Vision begins to question everything.
When Vision says that he hopes Billy is like his mother, this is a nod to Wanda and Vision’s son Billy in the comic books having magical abilities like Wanda.
The commercial in Episode 3 is very obvious with its mention of Hydra, but the Hydra Soak bath powder could be a callback to an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode, when in an alternate timeline, Coulson mentions Hydra’s mind-controlling soap.
Also, the narration in the commercial says, “Escape to a world all your own, where your problems float away,” which is another nod to Wanda creating this reality.
When Wanda is trying to hide her pregnancy from Geraldine, it’s a nod to all of the classic TV tricks used to hide an actor’s real-life pregnancy — a large coat, a bowl of fruit, and a large vase of flowers.
Similar to in Episode 1 and Episode 2, the color red plays an important role and continues to symbolize Wanda’s magic.
Of course, Wanda eventually gives birth to twin boys Billy and Tommy, who are so very important to Wanda’s story in the comic books. I literally started crying when I heard their names, it’s fine, I’M FINE.
When Vision walks the doctor out and asks if he’s still going on his trip, the doctor says that small towns are “hard to escape,” which is yet another nod to Vision and Wanda being trapped in this reality.
When Wanda mentions Pietro to Geraldine, this is the first time Wanda has even mentioned her brother since his death in Avengers: Age of Ultron — yes, I am WEEPING.
And then, Wanda sings a Sokovian lullaby to Billy and Tommy, and Wanda has barely spoken in Sokovian since Pietro’s death.
The necklace Wanda spots around Geraldine’s neck features the S.W.O.R.D. logo, which was seen in Episodes 1 and 2.
The broach Agnes wears as a necklace, which we get a better glimpse of in Episode 3, is very similar to the broach Agatha Harkness wears in the comics.
Also, on Agnes’s broach, one of the people appears to be carrying a scythe, which could be a nod to Grim Reaper, whose helmet was shown quickly in Episode 2.
And finally, when Geraldine gets literally thrown from WestView by Wanda, she is instantly surrounded by cars that have the S.W.O.R.D. logo.
