Post-credit scenes are already an ingrained custom in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Almost all his films have them, and they serve for viewers to get a glimpse of what the future of this superhero saga will bring us. In WandaVision (Jac Schaeffer, 2021), the Disney Plus series, have taken a while to offer us some. It has not been until the episode “Breaking the Fourth Wall” (1×07). After Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) has a second confrontation with Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), neighbor Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) takes the latter into her own home.
The setup of this scene, with Monica Rambeau’s final alarmed expression, cannot lead us to assume that Quicksilver is back simply to help.
There, the Sokovian witch discovers that she is not the only woman with a beaked hat in Westview. Because in her caring friend Agatha Harkness had been hiding all this time. And, after the long string of accreditations from WandaVision, they give us the first post-credit scene of the series. In it, Monica Rambeau is snooping to access the house that Agnes still believes, but without much dissimulation. When opening the outer doors of the basement, he finds that kind of roots or climbing plants on its walls, and his brown eyes light up with that blue light that reveals his new powers.
The reappearance of suspect Quicksilver
Y, suddenly Pietro Maximoff (Evan Peters), missing since his sister blew him up after an unfortunate comment about Vision (Paul Bettany) in “All-New Halloween Spooktacular!” (1×06), looks behind her and tells her not to be gossipy. The setup of this scene, with Monica Rambeau’s final alarmed expression, cannot lead us to suppose that Quicksilver has simply returned to help. Not even that it’s Wanda Maximoff’s late relative. In fact, the witch had already made it clear to Billy (Julian Hilliard) and Tommy (Jett Klyne) that he was not their uncle in an earlier sequence.
That Agatha Harkness is involved in the unexpected return of the alleged Quicksilver cannot but make her that much more suspicious.
Your obvious knowledge about the two Avengers’ baleful past and about what’s going on in Westview, namely Wanda Maximoff’s magical engineering to transform it into her idyllic home, her strange conformity to it, and her praise for the witch’s new abilities support this assumption. It is obvious, then, that this Quicksilver It is not like the other unconscious neighbors of the town And, with the introduction of Agatha Harkness and the fact that she is involved in the unexpected return of the speedy Sokovian, presumably by all means, it may not seem much more suspicious to us.
Agatha Harkness, main villain or tool?
These circumstances, together, would indicate that Agatha Harkness has recovered Pietro Maximoff, killed during what happened in Avengers: Age of Ultron (Joss Whedon, 2015), with some obscene charm and that she is using him to manipulate her sister with a dark purpose. There is no doubt that this would be the direct and simple explanation for what we have seen so far in WandaVision. But what if there is something else that Jac Schaeffer and Kevin Feige are still hiding from us that would put a big twist on the reality of these events? What if it is not Agatha Harkness who uses this supposed Quicksilver but another villain camouflaged with her identity? And what does he paint next to his house?
The perverse and sly little dot here is not typical of Quicksilver, but of the chatter of a villain like the extradimensional devil Mephisto
The character of Wanda Maximoff’s elusive brother, with the face of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, in Joss Whedon’s film was one of greater circumspection. WandaVision’s is much more unpredictable and talkative. Precisely like Evan Peters in the X-Men saga. But the wicked, sly little dot he has here does not come from his Quicksilver, and we would consider it typical of the chatter of a villain like the extradimensional devil Mephisto. Someone who would tell Billy and Tommy to “unleash hell” on Halloween as “spawn of the devil,” and that would tempt Wanda Maximoff with the power to modify the world at will to flee the suffering after Vision’s death.
