Wandavision: Every Episode Ranked

7. We Interrupt This Program

While episode four is titled "We Interrupt This Program," a more appropriate title might be "Answers, Finally!" This episode starts to unravel the mystery of Wanda and Vision by focusing on everyone but Wanda and Vision. Our leading characters are "Geraldine," revealed to be an adult Monica Rambeau from Captain Marvel, Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp, Darcy from the Thor films, and SWORD Director Tyler Hayward, an eventual antagonist of Wandavision.

This episode establishes that Westview is boarded off from the rest of the world, and that Wanda is broadcasting her wacky misadventures the audiences has been watching for the past three episodes as an actual sitcom, which SWORD is monitoring. For the remainder of the series, Wandavision follows both the Westview storyline and the SWORD storyline, so in many ways this episode acts as a second pilot.

The little bit of Wanda and Vision we do see is utterly creepy. Their brief scene picks up exactly where the previous episode has ended, except when Wanda turns to speak with Vision, she sees him as a corpse with the Mind Stone ripped from his forehead, as he appeared in Infinity War.

Despite how effective Wanda and Vision's brief screen time is, as well as how the episode sets up SWORD, this episode ranks towards the bottom because of how little time we get in Westview. Still, it's immensely satisfying to finally find some answers.
