WandaVision Scene Detail Suggests Wanda's In Full Control of Agnes

WandaVision is still filled to the brim with mysteries, and with only three (or potentially four) episodes left in its inaugural run, the space to solve all of them is shrinking.

What isn't shrinking, however, is Wanda's dominance over Westview. In "Episode 6," Wanda expanded her hex to encompass an undisclosed amount of additional land in order to keep Vision inside and S.W.O.R.D. out — or, in all actuality, in — for good. This only speaks to the Scarlet Witch's seemingly complete control over everyone inside the New Jersey town, including her own neighbor.

"Nosy neighbor" Agnes , played by Kathryn Hahn, has had an ongoing presence in WandaVision since "Episode 1," showing up at just the right time with just the right solution in hand for the Maximoff-Vision household. Many fans and viewers alike have speculated that Hahn's Agnes could eventually turn out to be Agatha Harkness, a comic book mentor to Wanda.

However, another ongoing theory is that Agnes may be working with overarching villain Mephisto to keep Wanda in check inside her sitcom-inspired reality.

A closer look at a brief reality-breaking moment a few episodes ago, though, might debunk that latter thought...


Twitter user @mirxclewanda shared a clip from "Episode 5" of WandaVision in which Vision begins to suspect that something is awry when Kathryn Hahn's Agnes pays him and Wanda's home a visit.

When Agnes looks perplexed as to what to say when Vision starts questioning her, Wanda can be seen tapping Agnes' arm, seemingly prompting her to laugh along with the witch as to avoid any suspicion from the synthezoid.

The tweet and clip can be seen below:


It's safe to say that at this point, it's unclear who the true villain of WandaVision is. Whether it's Mephisto , Nightmare (another comic book villain), Agnes, or even Wanda herself , the show's twisted way of storytelling has kept viewers guessing from the start.

Still, one overarching ideology has been that Agnes is up to something . When "Episode 4" premiered and S.W.O.R.D. began its case on Wanda's Hex, Agnes was one of the few Westview residents that didn't have an actual identity tied to her on-screen persona .

Furthermore, nearly every outfit Agnes has donned has been topped off with a brooch showcasing three figures with one holding a scythe, hinting at her possible connection to the devilish Mephisto.

Still, if Wanda's having to literally nudge Agnes along when things get shaky, then maybe Agnes isn't the evil mistress many have already made her out to be. It's possible that Agnes is, in fact, also being helplessly controlled by Wanda.

It's also worth noting that before this instance, when matters have gone awry in Westview (i.e. the unexpected S.W.O.R.D. "beekeeper" and Vision's questioning in "Episode 3") Wanda's world, simply put, reversed itself, almost like a VHS tape rewinding. Why wouldn't Wanda, or whoever is in control, do this again rather than physically urging Agnes along and keep the scene going as per usual?

Either way, something still isn't right with either Agnes or Wanda. Wanda has said a few times that she doesn't know how the events of WandaVision happened in the first place, and as the show nears its end, this is a mystery that certainly won't go cold.

WandaVision is now streaming on Disney+, and "Episode 7" will release on February 19, 2021.
