Wanda is ready to magically punch Agatha.

WandaVision came to its reality warping end Friday, with episode 9 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe show hitting Disney Plus. We’ve come to the season finale, in the wake of Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) realizing Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) is the Chaos magic-wielding Scarlet Witch and it sure looks like they’re gonna fight on the streets of Westview.

Wanda’s husband Vision (Paul Bettany) is also on his way home, having been filled in on his past by astrophysicist Darcy Lewis (Kat Dennings). However, we’ve learned that this Vision is a magical construct created by Wanda — shifty SWORD director Tyler Hayward (Josh Stamberg) brought his original synthezoid body back online outside the town and it sure looks like a soulless husk.

Also in play is the newly superpowered SWORD agent Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), whom we last saw being confronted by Pietro Maximoff (Evan Peters) — Agatha’s mysterious minion and an apparent refugee from the X-Men universe.

There, you’re caught up. Let’s do the SPOILER dance.

Meeting their destinies

The series ends with Wanda releasing Westview and letting her family go — Vision, Tommy and Billy all vanish with the illusion. She also forces Agatha to resume her role as nosy neighbor Agnes, before leaving for a life of apparent solitude.

An old friend of your mother’s

In a midcredits scene, after Wanda leaves and the FBI starts cleaning up the town, Monica meets an agent in the theater. She reveals herself to be a Skrull sent by a buddy of Monica’s late mom — presumably referring to postcredits superstar Nick Fury).

“He heard you’d been grounded. He’d like to meet with you,” the agent says, before pointing and looking up furtively.

The Skrull “unmasking” mirrors one of the postcredits scenes in Spider-Man: Far From Home, which also revealed that Fury was in space. Monica’s smile hints that she’s absolutely up for a space adventure, yes please. This is likely a reference to Captain Marvel 2.

Life in the wilderness

The postcredits scene jumps to Wanda living in an isolated cabin, with her physical self boiling a kettle for tea and her separate, magical self reading from the Darkhold — an ancient book of power spells previously seen in Agents of SHIELD and Agatha’s mad-creepy basement

Agatha mentioned that there’s a whole chapter on the Scarlet Witch, so Wanda is presumably reading it to try to get a better handle on her powers. But we also hear her seemingly vanished sons Billy and Tommy.

“Help! Mom, please!” they cry out from somewhere.

It seems they still exist in some form, so Wanda will obviously be wanting them back.
