Thought today's episode was excellent, one of the best so far IMHO.

Yeah it was very good. Wanda and Vision's conversation sitting on the bed one of the best moments.

Much like I would have liked them to spend more time with Monica at Sword after she un-snapped...



....this further backs up that dedicating entire episodes to the sitcom conceit at the start of the season wasn't entirely necessarily. There was very little plot progression between episodes 1, 2 and 3. They could have been 2 episodes and then they could have spent those minutes for expanding the much more interesting and illuminating flashbacks.

This one was treading water, even people who don’t know all the Scarlet witch backstory like I don’t will have picked up enough from the episodes without the need for a flash back episode.

Yes! Remember the conversation in Infinity War between Vision and Bruce?
He seems to think the best of Vision is much more than just the mind stone, and that the mind stone only augmented the programming of Jarvis, Ultron, Tony and Bruce.

I spent far too long trying to remember if that scene had actually happened in a previous Avengers film

Wasn’t so keen on this episode, just because personally I’m not fond of the MCU retconning of the comic versions of Wanda, Pietro and Vision I remember. I’ve been able to more or less ignore it so far but it was a bit in your face this ep

Still very good TV though

Director said the series is 6 hours long and we've only had 5 hours so far. So last episode should be 60 mins... not counting the 7 minutes of credits.

Actually, there have been entire hour of credits in the nine episodes! So, if he actually meant six hours, the last episode would be two hours long... doubtful!

There has been a rumour of a 10th episode knocking about. There is a lot to tie up in the next one.

Maybe... 10th episode would be nice. Falcon and the Winter Soldier starts on the 19th of March.. so if episode 9 of WandaVision is on the 5th... that means a 10th episode could fit in on the 12th.

In the Avengers film Vision walks through the wall when she's talking with Steve.. and she says to Vision "we talked about this"... the "talking about this" was the scene in episode 8..

I interpreted that as "we've talked about ... you just walking into my room announced" ??

Just to say, despite a very weird start to this series, to the point of by episode 2 or 3 I was thinking why am I watching this, it so very very gradually picked up pace, to the point of me loving this last episode which for me was packed with stuff solidly all the way thru the entire show.
My only feeling now is, based upon where we are now, with it all kicking off, it feels like there could/should be another good solid 4 or 5 episodes worth.

Worried it's going to feel like so much time was wasted? on the first 3 or 4 shows that it's now got to race thru stuff at the end, when more could have been made of the good bits.

As an aside note: I'm not into the whole Avengers back story stuff, so I'm not bothered about things not sticking to historical events.
No idea who vision is/was either really.

This is probably due to me having zero interest in American superhero comic books as a child.
All the Marvel, Batman, Spiderman, Hulk, etc etc, not my thing
I was just into Beano, Wizzer and Chips, Cor, Monster Fun etc
