In WandaVision Ep 4:
In WandaVision Ep 4, we see what’s been happening outside of the Westview bubble. After returning from “the blip,” Captain Monica Rambeau returns to work at S.W.O.R.D. Along with FBI Agent Jimmy Woo, Monica heads to Westview, NJ to investigate the mystery. However, a force immediately sucks Monica into the portal. Within hours, SWORD sets up a military base outside of Westview & recruits experts to try & figure out what is happening. Astrophysicist Darcy Lewis quickly determines that someone is broadcasting life in Westview in the style of classic sitcoms.
Agent Woo & Dr. Lewis work together to try & identify residents, make contact with Wanda, & understand who or what is behind this broadcast. After the portal sucks in another S.W.O.R.D. agent, Monica Rambeau reappears outside the portal after Wanda expels her from Westview in a rage. Wanda’s mental state appears to be deteriorating, especially when she sees a zombified Vision. The episode ends ominously with Wanda & Vision having a tense night with their new twins and Monica relaying that Wanda is controlling the people of Westview.
WandaVision kicks off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Disney+ series stars Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Kathryn Hahn, Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings, & Randall Park.
