MARVEL FANS have been trying to figure out who the bad guy of WandaVision is for months, and the Disney+ series hasn’t made it easy. But the few hints that the show has made, have all pointed to Wanda herself being the show’s unexpected villain.
Warning! Spoilers below for WandaVision Episode 4.
The conclusion of WandaVision Episode 4 did a lot to further those theories, with Wanda bitterly calling Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau an “outsider” and accusing her of “trespassing,” before throwing her out of Westview. The moment seemed to confirm that Wanda is not only aware her current reality is a false one, she’s also actively working to maintain it.
And yet, we’re still not totally convinced Wanda is responsible for what’s going on in WandaVision. At least, not all of it. There are a few reasons for that — starting with two of Westview’s most prominent citizens.
AGNES & DOTTIE — Rumors have been swirling about Kathryn Hahn’s Agnes ever since she showed up in the first WandaVision trailer. Most fans believe that Agnes is actually a character named Agatha Harkness from the Marvel comics, a powerful witch who has been both a mentor and rival to Scarlet Witch.
Similarly, there’s been speculation about who Emma Caulfield’s Dottie could be — the woman who Agnes herself told Wanda is the “key to everything in this town.” Many believe she’s playing a notable character from the comics as well, though it’s still unclear which character she could be. Neither Dottie nor Agnes has acted very “normal” in the show so far either — although that’s a pretty low bar in Westview.
What’s interesting though, is that in WandaVision Episode 4, we see Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis and Randall Park’s Jimmy Woo figure out the real-life identities of almost every major Westview citizen we’ve met so far — except Agnes and Dottie. Agnes’s photo is on the board, but no New Jersey ID is pinned on top of it like the others, while Dottie’s picture is nowhere to be seen. (It’s possible the board is still a work-in-progress at that point, but this feels like a pretty big clue.)
