Another week where I cry over Wanda Maximoff, so nothing has changed.
First, like in other episodes of WandaVision, Wanda and Vision’s house has changed, and now the inside looks exactly like the Keatons’ house from Family Ties.
In fact, Wanda and Vision’s living room includes a lot of the stained glass that was featured in the Keatons’ living room on Family Ties.
Vision is also wearing 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.”
Also, Agnes says she has a few “tricks” up her sleeve, which is another nod to Agnes probably being Agatha Harkness, who is a powerful witch.
Of course, we see that Wanda’s reality is beginning to crack when Agnes asks if Wanda wants her to “take that again” and redo the scene. And this hints at the fact that Agnes is aware that this is all an illusion created by Wanda.
Once again, Agnes mentions her husband Ralph, who we have never seen. Now that we know Jimmy was called to Westview on a missing person case, could Ralph be the missing person?
The opening credits of WandaVision Episode 5 include a nod to the iconic opening credits from Family Ties, right down to the color red being the first color used to paint the family portrait.
And WandaVision also uses a similar font to the one from the Family Ties opening credits. They also zoom in on the family portrait for each cast member.
The opening credits also pay homage to the Growing Pains title sequence, which includes photos of the cast growing up.
And while there are sure to be more nods to Full House in the ’90s-themed episode, the opening credits for Episode 5 feature a picnic, which is similar to the one from the Full House opening credits.
Monica undergoes a bunch of tests upon returning to S.W.O.R.D., but none of her scans develop properly. This could be a hint that Monica will be getting powers because she was blasted with Wanda’s magic.
When Jimmy is running through Wanda’s history, you can see the “113” when they pull up news footage of the Sokovia attacks. “113” could be a reference 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.
And, if you look closely, you can spot “A113” on one of the files about Wanda. A113 is a classic Pixar/Disney Easter egg, and it’s hidden in every Pixar movie.
Tyler Hayward asks Jimmy if Wanda has an “alias” that she goes by, and Jimmy says she doesn’t. This is a nod to the fact that “Scarlet Witch” has never been used in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Tyler Hayward shows Jimmy, Darcy, and Monica footage from when Wanda broke into S.W.O.R.D. and stole Vision’s dead body. This was actually supposed to be a post-credit scene in Avengers: Endgame, but it was ultimately cut.
Jimmy also 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 a dog and they name him Sparky. In the comic books, Sparky is actually a green dog that Vision creates for his family.
On the back of the newspaper Vision is reading, you can see that there’s an ad for a TV and VHS player. This is just another brilliant nod to Wanda and Vision being trapped in this sitcom world.
Throughout the episode, Billy and Tommy are seen wearing red and green respectively, which is a nod to their signature colors from the comic books.
Monica tells Darcy that she knows an “aerospace engineer” who could help them out, and I’m freaking out because Reed Richards from Fantastic Four is an aerospace engineer.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that Agnes is the only Westview resident who doesn’t have a license attached to her information sheet. This likely links to the fact that Agnes is actually Agatha Harkness and not a Westview resident.
When Wanda leaves Westview to confront S.W.O.R.D., you’ll notice that you can hear her slight Sokovian accent once again because she’s not in her fictional reality.
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 innocent people in Captain America: Civil War.
Also in the commercial, the mom cleans up red juice and it turns her hands red, which could be a nod to Wanda feeling like she has “blood on her hands” after the Lagos disaster.
Sparky, Billy and Tommy’s dog, dies later in the episode and they ask Wanda if she can bring him back. In the comics, Wanda is able to bring back Sparky with the help of Tony Stark.
The end credits that Wanda makes appear when she wants to run from her conversation with Vision look like the end credits from Growing Pains.
And finally, the biggest detail/Easter egg on WandaVision so far is when Evan Peters arrives as Pietro. Evan notably played Quicksilver/Peter Maximoff in the X-Men movies.
Basically, this means that the multiverse does exist and Wanda brought the wrong Pietro/Quicksilver into her reality. This could mean that the multiverse is breaking down because Wanda is heavily manipulating reality. Yes, I am YELLING.
