WandaVision review


Joe Draper

This picture is the cover of WandaVision. It shows the show title and Wanda and Vision, one in half black and white, and the other half in color.

By now, I’m pretty sure we’ve all heard about a show called WandaVision, which you can watch on Disney+. If you haven’t heard about it or seen it yet, then you’re probably living under a rock! This show is about Wanda Maximoff and ‘’The Vision.” If you’ve watched the Avengers movies, you know that Wanda and Vision are a couple but *spoilers ahead for anyone who hasn’t seen them* he died in Infinity War. After Endgame, Wanda felt so alone so she drove to Westview, went to a spot where it seems a house was going to be built, opened a blueprint and we can see there’s a heart drawn around the spot she’s at. It says ‘’To grow old in – V.’’ From this, we can tell that place was where Wanda and Vision wanted to grow old in and have a family. Something to know before we move on: Wanda loved old kinds of shows that were in black and white when she was a kid, so knowing Vision is dead, Wanda lets her emotions get the better of her and she creates this fantasy of her own. She takes over the whole town of Westview and controls them to make sure she and Vision get their perfect life and live happily. 

Wanda and Vision are having their happy life up to episode 3. Weird things start to happen and we’re just left wondering what’s going on. From that episode onwards, I was so confused and really didn’t understand the show. Then on episode 4, we start getting an explanation for what’s going on and I’m not sure about any other viewers but I really said ‘’Ohhhh that makes so much sense.’’ Little bit of a spoiler: the plot twist was so unexpected. Other viewers who pay more attention most likely knew by the time we found out, but I myself wouldn’t have imagined that person to be the villain in Wanda’s world. I won’t spoil the show for anyone (sorry if I already somewhat have) so let’s move on to the last episode.

I’m going to be honest, while WandaVision was trending, there was something about it that made me promise myself I wasn’t going to watch it, but once the last episode was released, I decided to watch it to see what all the hype was about. I got to the last episode and let me tell you, by the end of it, it was midnight and I was crying my eyes out. 

WandaVision was such a good show to watch because Wanda is one of my favorite characters and I love Wanda and Vision together. This show has made me happy, confused, shocked and most of all, sad. I’m a very emotional person and I cry at the littlest things so if you’re anything like me, you will cry at the finale. I definitely recommend this show to any Marvel fans, anyone who just wants to watch a quick show (WandaVision only has nine episodes and each are around 20 minutes) and anyone who misses Wanda and Vision.
