TV Show Review: WandaVision (Season 1: Episode 5)

WandaVision (Season 1: Episode 5)
Jan 15, 2021
Executive Producers: Jac Schaeffer, Kevin Feige
Starring: Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Teyonah Parris
Episodes: 8
Genre: Action & Adventure
Based on: Scarlet Witch; by Stan Lee; Jack Kirby;
TV Network: Disney+
 “On a Very Special Episode...
” is the fifth episode of the American television miniseries WandaVision, based on the Marvel Comics characters Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Vision. 
Vision becomes increasingly agitated over their neighbors' unusual antics, forcing Wanda to confront her husband.

The pace is picking up on Wandavision, and viewers got quite the surprise and the end of the most recent episode.

After the dust settled in Avengers: Endgame, no one really knew what happened to Wanda. Until now. The episode showed brief glimpses of cracks in Wanda's fa├žade, and in those moments, her grief, anger, and denial are plain to see. In a handful of years, she’s lost her brother, her second family with The Avengers, and the love of her life. She has a tremendous amount of power who wouldn't be tempted to create a world of their own where they can block out the pain? At this point, the Wandavision has begun to show that while Wanda is very powerful, those powers are rooted in her emotions.

The show, for all its quirks, is finding its footing. Hopefully, the last few episodes will serve to establish a true connection to the next set of Marvel films. I know that Wanda and Vision are the main attraction here, but I would love to know more about grown-up Monica Rambeau and why she seems to have a problem with Captain Marvel. I hope they don’t use all of Monica's backstory for a film, as it might slow said film down. Right?

Out of all the puzzle pieces in this episode, though, none was more shocking, satisfying, exciting, or confusing as what happened—or should I say who happened—in the last 2 minutes. Does this mean what I think it does? That we're getting some major additions to the MCU????

Rating: 4 1/2 “You didn’t see that coming?” sheep
