Episode 7 concludes with the unmasking of Wanda’s nosy neighbor ‘Agnes’ as Agatha Harkness, the powerful sorceress who in the Marvel comics mentors Scarlet Witch/Wanda as she develops her superhero powers.
While always depicted as having a slightly sinister side by creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby – she’s a survivor of the Salem Witch Trials with a magical black cat, after all – WandaVision’s Agatha (brilliantly played by Kathryn Hahn) is introduced to us in a truly chilling manner.
As a result, many now believe she’s the show’s true villain (not Mephisto as many expected), though with two episodes left there’s still plenty of time for a final twist or two.
In addition to learning her true identity, we also discover that it’s Agnes/Agatha who’s been pulling all the strings in the Westview world – which in episode 7 brings its decade-hopping TV homage theme forward to the 00s and shows like The Office and Modern Family.

How to save money on Disney+
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. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck in to we very much doubt you’ll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You’re looking at a mere $69.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year.
Or if your interests are farther reaching (and you’re in the US), then we’d seriously suggest looking at the fantastic value bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN+ to your subscription price.
The Hulu element opens up a world of Hulu Originals such as The Great, Upload, Helstrom and Normal People – as well as being the only place to watch Britney Spears documentary right now. Bringing further great value ESPN+ offers loads of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $12.99 a month.
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, there’s the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy and sees the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy. It costs a tiny bit more, but is worth it based on our initial impressions – and you can still save big by going with an annual subscription.
