Monica plots her return, Wanda navigates unsettling complications, and Vision forms a new alliance.

Just watched it. All I'll say for now is that there IS a brief mid-credits scene at the end this time.

This was a slower episode, and the Big Reveal wasn't particularly Big (or surprising). Darcy seemed a little too knowledgeable (why would anyone besides Thanos know about time being turned back during Infinity War?) but otherwise a solid, dare I say "breather", episode. The final sequence featuring
Spoiler:
Agatha's revelatory theme song
was a hoot

AAARRRRGGGHHHH.

Still 30 minutes, and still too short.
Been a long time since I watched a serial in real time and not been able to just binge on it on disc.

So whether
Spoiler:
Mephisto



shows up or not by the end of this run, it sure looks like that's where everything is pointing.

Also I wonder if the general plot point of DS: MoM is
Spoiler:
retrieving Wiccan and Speed (who will probably age up ala Iliyana/Majik) from Mephisto's realm?



On second thought, that's all so obvious, it's probably going to go nothing like that.

So... one obvious theory proved correct. Let’s see where else it goes.

It seems more now like things are pointing to
Spoiler:
Nightmare instead of Mephisto. Also, a while back when Scott Derrickson was going to direct DS2, he said Marvel was planning on using him as the villain.

So, was that the engineer that was hinted at for a few weeks? If so, that might be the biggest (only?) misstep of the series imo. Is that supposed to even be someone we know?

Loved The Office intro! (called it!)

No, I don't think so. Still to be introduced.

I think the Major was just the delivery person.

Awesome. Loved the Office intro. Olsen really had the Julie Bowen Modern Family vibe. So Rambeau obviously has powers now as a result of the radiation. I see this being the very easy way for Marvel to introduce mutants now. Blast the world with it and there you go.

Ahh, ok. That makes more sense saving any reveal for the final episode.

Office intro? I love The Office and nothing about these opening credits said The Office to me.

It reminded me of The Office too while the episode was more Modern Family.

The song intro was very The Office inspired.

It was absolutely a homage to the US Office theme and credits.

It also was a bit of Happy Endings with the multiple different version of the word Wanda. Then the title font was Modern Family’s.

The purple shots inside the Hex make it look like The Shimmer from Annihilation.

Anyway, slower than the last few episodes but the plot definitely thickened. And good to see Yo Gabba Gabba exists in her universe.

It seems that the events of Infinity War/End Game are public knowledge. Darcy could have a connection to Thor so could have gotten her knowledge somehow there but Woo doesn’t have any kind of a connection. Makes sense too especially since they failed and because of the Sokovia accords that they would be detailed in their forthcoming debrief to the world.

I too loved the Agatha’s theme song reveal. Also I guess this confirms that Wanda created the Hex all on her own initially.

One friend had an interesting thought on who we all think the big bad reveal could be. Could they even do that with the Chinese market? Don’t they have strict rules about media with spiritual undertones? And we all know how the MCU, and Disney in general, likes to bend over for the Chinese market.

But then again maybe they’ll make an exception since it’s highly stylized/fantasy. And wouldn’t witch character be included in that?

You can't make that idea work for Wolverine, Magneto or Apocalypse. Since this is supposedly a prequel to DS: Multiverse of Madness, I think they are setting this show up for a major shock reveal.

​​​​​​You can make anything work. Does it fit with comic book history? No. But you can easily make it work.

My grasp of modern (late 80's- present ) print Marvel is shaky, so
Spoiler:
why specifically Nightmare more so than Mephisto? Anything apart from Dickerson's earlier comment?

Guess on the reveal:

Spoiler:
Maybe the reveal is ... Wong? Mordo? Buzz Lightyear?

Spoiler:
The word nightmare has been referenced a few times over the last couple of episodes.
Also, as tanman’s post a few up notes, China has an issue with and bans things demonic/satanic in films. Marvel may not want to use the character.

I thought it would be Mephisto from the start, but am leaning more toward Nightmare now. One the two is very likely.

This was the movie I wanted after Infinity War, where Captain America gives the press conference of what exactly went down and why people disappeared. I mean, the Avengers had to have given an account of what happened. There was probably a UN report.
