WandaVision Episode 3 Review: Now in Color

The extent of Wanda’s powers — and how much control or lack thereof she has over this world in which she and Viz are living — become even clearer as her pregnancy suddenly jumps to the six month mark and a series of early Braxton-Hicks contractions cause the power to fluctuate in their town of Westview. She’s also more blatant about rewinding the “show” to avoid having Vision learn too much, as when he spies Agnes (Kathryn Hahn) and Herb whispering conspiratorially by the property wall.

Who are they whispering about? “Geraldine,” a.k.a. Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), who has stopped by to visit super-pregnant Wanda and, as it turns out, ends up helping her give birth as the timeline shoots forward once again and Wanda’s big moment arrives. And boy, does it — as her water breaks, rain falls inside the Maximoff/Vision residence, and as her contractions come hard and fast, reality starts to break around them — more power outages, earthquakes, fire and even a manifestation of an actual stork.

Wanda delivers — and as Marvel comics fans might well have expected, she gives birth to not one baby but two. The second twin surprises everyone (except, again, diehard fans) and the debate over whether to use the name Tommy or Billy is quickly settled. Meanwhile, delivery over, the world of Westview stabilizes…at least for a minute.

But not all is well as episode 3 reaches its momentous conclusion: looking down at the twins with Geraldine, Wanda murmurs that she had a twin brother herself. To which Geraldine replies nonchalantly, “Your brother was killed by Ultron, wasn’t he?” (Quick refresher: yes, Wanda’s twin brother Pietro, a.k.a. Quicksilver, was killed by the title villain in Avengers: Age of Ultron.)

And with that — and finally noticing that the pendant around Geraldine’s neck is the same S.W.O.R.D. logo she saw on the toy helicopter she discovered outside their house last week — Wanda has had enough of her new friend. She flings Geraldine/Monica out of the house and out of Westview itself, with the agent landing on a grassy field outside the town and immediately surrounded by helicopters and cars. This is where we are also afforded our first look at how Westview appears from the outside, and all we can really see is a massive energy field surrounding whatever Wanda has constructed in there.
