Warning — This article contains spoilers for WandaVision.

Marvel Studios is kicking off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a big way with its first exclusive Disney+ show, WandaVision . The first two episodes available to enjoy now on Disney's streaming platform, and fans are currently watching through every frame , dissecting both the action and the teases that Marvel is laying out early on.

While the story of Wanda and Vision's first solo adventure together is exciting in and of itself, the best part of the series is being able to re-watch it countless times to catch every small detail hidden through the plot. Some of these are easy to spot like the Stark and Hydra commercials , directly referencing the MCU's past, while others are sneakier like the helicopter with the issue of the comics in which Vision made his debut .

Two more of these Easter Eggs have just been discovered from Episode 2.


During the opening theme song in Episode 2 of WandaVision , two distinct Easter Eggs can be seen in the shot of Wanda and Monica Rambeau in the grocery store.

The banner directly in the top middle has an ad for Bova Milk, which is likely a reference to Bova Ayrshire from Marvel Comics. Bova is a cow in the comics that evolved to walk and talk like a human, and she served as a midwife at the birth of Wanda and Pietro Maximoff.

The Emmys trailer for WandaVision also included a picture of a cow hanging in Wanda's living room during one of the eras closer to present day as she's magically changing the furniture.

The banner to the right reads "Auntie A's," which could be a reference to Agatha Harkness, who is sometimes known as Auntie A in the comics. The ad also includes a cat on the far right, which appears to reference Agatha's cat from the comics named Ebony.

Kathryn Hahn's Agnes has been rumored to eventually turn into Agatha Harkness since the first teaser trailer released last summer, but this could be further indication of that reveal being on the way. Ebony the cat hasn't been seen yet in this show, but could be on the way considering Agnes already has the pet bunny names Señor Scratchy which she lent to Wanda for the community magic show

Furthermore, in the WandaVision ad released on Christmas Day , Agnes refers to herself as "Auntie Agnes" halfway through the footage. It is seeming more and more likely that the MCU will bring Agatha Harkness to life in this series, and the only mystery remaining is how long it will take to come around.

As for Bova Ayrshie, it will be interesting to find out if she actually appears as a physical entity or something more like an emotional support figure. Since Wanda is already grown, Bova could end up being a memento like a stuffed animal that gives Wanda comfort, especially if her lost brother, Pietro, comes into play later in the series.

No matter how significantly these Easter Eggs play into the plot of WandaVision , Marvel Studios is clearly holding nothing back as the team lays out teases for fans to salivate over. The first two episodes of WandaVision are now available to stream on Disney+ .
