Last week, fans of Marvel Studios’ brilliant but sometimes bizarre small screen debut WandaVision finally got some answers about the show’s place in the wider MCU – and even bigger reveals are promised this week as all-new episode 5 is released. Read on as we explain how to watch WandaVision online and stream the latest instalment of the Avengers spin-off on Disney Plus today.
How to watch WandaVision episode 5

Watch now: stream WandaVision on Disney Plus from just $6.99/£5.99/AU$8.99 a month
*Warning: minor spoilers for the Avengers movies, WandaVision episodes 1-4, and other Marvel content may exist below*
As before, episode 5 is released on the platform at midnight PT / 3am ET / 8am GMT / 7pm AEDT – in this case on Friday, February 5.
Last week, episode 4 re-introduced a couple of familiar faces in FBI agent Jimmy Woo (Randall Park) and Dr. Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings). Taking a breaking from the decade-hopping sitcom homages of episodes 1-3, we were told the Blip may have created a time-travelling sitcom starring our superheroes, Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and not-really-killed-by-Thanos Vision (Paul Bettany).
That explains the glorious homages to everything from Bewitched and I Love Lucy to That 70s Show, giving us some further insight into how WandaVision is set to kick-off phase four of the MCU this year. For a more detailed explanation you can check out our full WandaVision episode 4 recap, which includes full spoilers.
As always, the internet is awash with its own theories, one of the more intriguing being that the show’s theme song could invoke Mephisto as the show’s villain. Whatever happens, we now know there’s a lot more to our happily married couple living the picture perfect suburban life in Westview than first meets the eye.
Follow our guide as we explain how to watch WandaVision episode 5 online and stream the new Marvel show today. Actually, we do know something else for sure: all you need is a great value Disney Plus subscription!

Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price.

What else should I know about Disney+?
Disney Plus is showing no signs of slowing down since the service first launched last November. WandaVision is just the latest in a string of recent blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Soul, The Mandalorian, Mulan, Hamilton, and much more.
The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.
Also, now that Disney has set the precedent of releasing its live-action Mulan remake on the service instead of in theaters through its Premiere Access program, expect the company to keep bring more blockbuster films that were originally intended to be shown on the big screen to Disney Plus in 2021.
And finally, Disney Plus is getting a number of new additions to already vast library of content in 2021 by way of the new Star on Disney Plus add-on launching in global markets like the UK – in fact, it’s catalogue will nearly double for those who sign up for the channel in
