WandaVision episode nine bought the Westview fantasy to a glitchy, gut-wrenching end – with an end credits scene teasing the fate of Billy and Tommy, aka Wiccan and Speed.
After nine weeks, two kids and one inescapable jingle, WandaVision is over. Fake (depending on how you see it) Vision is no more, the Scarlet Witch has truly arrived, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe kinda has its first gay superhero – who’s out there, somewhere.
The WandaVision finale wrapped up the story in a fairly neat bow, showing Wanda reaching the acceptance stage of her grief and truly coming into her powers. Part of this meant relinquishing the spell she had cast over Westview – and with it, the family she had created for herself.
Only the truly soulless wouldn’t have been moved by Wanda and Vision putting their twins Billy and Tommy to bed, in the knowledge that the Hex unravelling in the horizon would make them (and Fake Vision) cease to exist. Unless, of course, you’re the type who raged against last week’s “what is grief if not live persevering” line, in which case – this episode probably wasn’t for you.
