First off, if the title of the episode is any indication, we definitely won’t be getting a second season of WandaVision.
Marvel Boss Kevin Feige told the press at TCA last week “to never say never” when it comes to a season 2 of the Elizabeth Olsen-Paul Bettany Disney+ Marvel series, but it’s certainly clear now that the series will bridge to the movies Captain Marvel 2 (or upcoming Disney+ Secret Invasion series) as expected and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
In regards to how the finale directed by Matt Shakman and written by Jac Schaeffer extends to those big pics, read on. However, to clear up a few big things that some were expecting and did not occur: Big bad villain Mephisto never revealed himself, and as of this moment, Agnes’ husband Ralph doesn’t appear to be Mephisto. Later on in the episode as Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) learns while being holed up with Evan Peters’ Quicksilver, he turns out to be an actor by the name of Ralph Bohner. Logically, it’s the “Ralph” who Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) kept referring to as her husband. In another ‘duh’, Evan Peters’ character is really not Pietro Maximoff. Also, walking away from tonight’s episode, it’s not clear how “The Series Finale” connects to Sony/Marvel’s upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home movie. If that’s the case, we’ll learn more in December.
While we were all waiting at the edge of our seats for major revelations tonight, WandaVision‘s last episode wraps up in a favorable, although predictable way: Good triumphs over evil, i.e. Agnes doesn’t rule the day; and Wanda transforms into the Scarlet Witch as expected.
All of this said, there is a cliffhanger: Will Wanda ever see her family again, meaning hubby Vision and boys Billy and Tommy? And if so, when? Fast forward to the second of two end-credit sequences and we see Wanda, far away secluded in a cabin in a snowy mountain wilderness. As she enjoys a cup of tea on the porch, her alter ego, the Scarlet Witch is busy inside, going through Agnes’ Darkhold Book (aka the Book of the Damn) and in the distance, Scarlet hears the screams of Tommy and Billy calling for her help.
