The Biggest Questions We Hope The ‘WandaVision’ Finale Will Answer
We have so many questions that need to be answered tonight, and I cannot wait.
Happy WandaVision finale! We have one last chance to speculate and deep dive before the series crashes to a conclusion at 7pm AEDT tonight.
Since I’ve done a lot of speculating over the last month in Junkee’s WandaVision Easter Eggs Explained piece, I thought I’d take a breath and ask what I really want from the show’s finale. What questions have been raised that WandaVision should answer in its final moments?
Will Vision Actually Return?
This has been a question at the forefront of my mind since I saw the first trailers for WandaVision. As we know, Vision was killed definitively in Avengers: Endgame in a way that suggested his return was not really possible without effecting the reversal and return from Thanos’ snap.
As it stands we now have a second Vision created by Wanda who is seemingly unable to leave the Hex without dying. We also have Vision’s corporal form devoid of his, for lack of a better word, soul. If the finale sees the two Visions combined, which would make sense, how is this resurrection reconciled with the established Infinity Stone timeline?

I’d hate for Wanda to end the series alone as much as the next person, but I’m also a stickler for stories sticking to their established lore. If Vision is resurrected completely, WandaVision better have a decent explanation as to how it won’t mess up the established timeline. Not to mention, it would undercut the series main message about grief.
Will Billy And Tommy Get To Stay?
There are so many questions surrounding how Billy and Tommy even exist, let alone if they will be able to maintain this existence. It was established in the Halloween episode that Vision can’t leave the Hex because, as we now know, Wanda created him inside it. By that same logic, and I really hate to say this, Tommy and Billy probably can’t survive outside the Hex either. This is probably why Wanda consistently warned them to not go past Ellis Avenue, which marked the boundary.

The million-dollar question, then, is will the boys get to keep their lives if the Hex is destroyed? My heart says yes, but my mind says no. In one of the handful of comics that WandaVision is based on, it’s revealed Wanda isn’t powerful enough for her boys to exist when she isn’t with them, and they only exist when she’s looking at them. The grief from this reveal is so great Wanda asks Agatha Harkness to wipe her memories of them entirely.
I don’t think WandaVision will do something as dark, but I am not confident of the boys’ survival either.
How Will Wanda Connect With Doctor Strange?
The next marvel project Wanda is due to be involved in is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness where she is top-billed with the titular Doctor Strange. It stands to reason that WandaVision should connect the two characters, considering they’ve yet to have any interactions.
So far there’s been some easter eggs hinting at a Strange connection. The use of chaos magic is one, and Agatha’s creepy glowing book in the basement is another, but neither really lays the foundation for a feature-length team-up. Hopefully, a connection will be made in the finale.
Want to know my theory? I think Wanda is going to be punished for breaking the Sokovia Accords. Rather than put her under house arrest like they did with Scott Lang in Ant-Man and the Wasp, however, they’ll put her under the supervision of an Avenger that will keep her powers in check. Enter: Doctor Strange.
What Will Happen To Monica?
We haven’t seen Monica since the creepy post-credit scene in episode 7 where fake Pietro caught her sneaking into Agatha’s house. Obviously, I want to know she’s okay, but the bigger question is what will she do now she’s a superpowered person? Monica goes by many super aliases in the comics. Spectrum, Photon and Captain Marvel, to name a few.
As we approach the final episode of Wandavision I’d just like everyone to remember:

So, who will she be? Where will she go? What will she do? But most importantly, did she hand fake Pietro’s scrawny ass right to him?
What Will Become Of Westview And The Missing Persons?
SWORD’s investigation into the Hex began with a missing person case. As did Agent Jimmy Woo and the FBI’s investigation. It might seem a silly question to ask at this point, but will all these people who’ve been trapped and missing under Wanda’s influence be okay?
Will the rundown town of Westview get to keep its Wanda-esque makeover, or cease to exist? Will it be destroyed by whatever Hayward has been planning with White Vision? Hopefully, we will see.
Will People In The MCU Realise The Value Of Therapy?
If this series has proved one thing it is that characters in the MCU need regular therapy. Especially, at this point, Miss Wanda Maximoff. So, I hope that the lesson we all take away from whatever happens in the finale is that the best investment when it comes to the prevention of haywire superheroes isn’t some accords. It’s a licensed therapist.
