Episode 8 gave us flashbacks of the past of Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), who as in the comics was one of Salem's witches in 1693 - historically the time of the town's infamous trials, but in this case more of an all-out Witch World War. We then learn that her presence in Westview is far from a coincidence, but that sensing fellow-witch Wanda's powers at work, she wanted to see what the heck was going on.
Ultimately, this leads us to the revelation that the town's picture perfect illusion was created by a grief-stricken Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) unleashing her powers after Vision's death and the result being an alternative universe based on the sit-coms that had comforted her in the past - as a child in war torn Sokovia, and then as a patient in HYDRA's Infinity Stone experiments. While a minor detail compared to some, this also explains the evolving timeline of shows WandaVision pays homage to.
It also means that Vision (Paul Bettany) is still very much dead, and that despite Wanda's best efforts, his body is being held at S.W.O.R.D. headquarters - where they're busy trying to resurrect him with who-knows-what in mind. What this means for the WandaVision finale is unclear, but it could be WandaVision comes to a head with Wanda vs Vision, some corners of the internet are speculating!

How to save money on Disney+
Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck in to we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You're looking at a mere $69.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year (opens in new tab).
Or if your interests are farther reaching (and you're in the US), then we'd seriously suggest looking at the fantastic value bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN+ to your subscription price.
The Hulu element opens up a world of Hulu Originals such as The Great, Upload, Helstrom and Normal People - as well as being the only place to watch Britney Spears documentary right now. Bringing further great value ESPN+ offers loads of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $12.99 a month (opens in new tab).
What else should I know about Disney+?
Disney Plus is showing no signs of slowing down since the service first launched last November. WandaVision is just the latest in a string of recent blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Soul, The Mandalorian, Mulan, Hamilton, and much more.
The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.
Also, now that Disney has set the precedent of releasing its live-action Mulan remake on the service instead of in theaters through its Premiere Access program, expect the company to keep bring more blockbuster films that were originally intended to be shown on the big screen to Disney Plus in 2021 - it's the place to watch Raya and the Last Dragon right now, for instance.
And finally, there's the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy and sees the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy. It costs a tiny bit more, but is worth it based on our initial impressions - and you can still save big by going with an annual subscription.
