The series finale of WandaVision entitled ‘The Series Finale’ brought the story of Wanda Maximoff’s grief to a close with an action-packed big bad fight with Wanda taking on Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) and Vision fighting SWORD’s White Vision. However, the episode ended on an emotional note of heartfelt acceptance and love. Wanda says goodbye to her constructed family as the illusion of Westview collapses around them. Fans of the MCU have seen moments of emotional depth from the movies and the conclusion to this series is up there with the deepest.
It’s worth pointing out that the finale did not introduce any major new characters (like some actors have teased), or have a massive cameo, or establish a new big bad after Agatha Harkness. There were no multiverse antics and the X-Men remain outside the MCU for now (even Evan Peters Quicksilver was a red herring). Doctor Strange was name-dropped, but Benedict Cumberbatch did not show up. Every big moment and cameo that fans have been theorizing over for weeks was subverted in this episode. Which seems appropriate because upon watching the finale, we see that the series was never about any of that, but about Wanda dealing with her grief and moving on. It shows a lot of restraint on Marvel’s part and it’s definitely a fitting end to a weird, wonderful and cathartic show.
