Wandavision: Now In Colour – Disney+ Talk (SPOILERS!)
Another week brings us another episode of the Marvel show ‘Wandavision’. However, Disney+ only released one episode this week, called ‘Now In Colour’.
In episode 3, Wanda and Vision deal with preparations of their unborn child and Wanda’s powers as they seem out of control.
Overall, this may be my favourite episode. The show is now in bright, vibrant colour and the acting, characters and even setting of the house now resemble that of a 1960’s sitcom. The show also gives us an unfamiliar scenario: what would happen if a superhero with special powers became pregnant? Would that change anything? It’s an interesting and unique situation to place Wanda and Vision in, and one that is played mostly for laughs, which it succeeds at.
However, if you were expecting the show to slow down with its creepiness factor, then you would be very wrong. And it’s going to be difficult to discuss this episode without spoiling anything. So, this is a spoiler warning for episode 3 of ‘Wandavision’.
As I previously mentioned, the show doesn’t stop with its eeriness: In the first 10 minutes, Wanda is worried about people finding out about their powers and, when Vision suspects something’s wrong, the show literally glitches and shows the start of that scene again but with new dialogue. The idea of escape is also spoken about a few times in this episode: Wanda’s doctor, Dr Nielsen, is planning on going on vacation but his car suddenly breaks down. He even tells Vision that ‘a small town makes it so hard to escape’. Then, near the end of the episode, their neighbour, Herb, and friend, Agnes, are talking and Herb tries to talk to Vision, to tell him that they’re stuck in this town. However, Agnes keeps interrupting him, telling him to be quiet. It’s clear that the townspeople want to leave this town but can’t; something’s stopping them from leaving and that they’re trapped.
Herb also tells Vision about the new resident, Geraldine (played by Teyonah Parris), and that she just seemed to have popped into existence and doesn’t have any family or home. Geraldine helps Wanda deliver her babies, but when Wanda remembers her brother, Pedro aka Quiksilver, Geraldine reveals that she knows about it. Wanda then questions her plus questions the sword necklace she’s wearing and, when Geraldine avoids the questions, she disappears. Wanda tells Vision that she left when, in actual fact, she’s been transported to modern day.
The necklace is the logo of S.W.O.R.D, meaning that Geraldine may have been placed in this town to rescue Wanda. However, I still think Wanda is in control of the town and doesn’t want to leave, which is why she gets rid of Geraldine. She also doesn’t tell Vision what’s going on, meaning that Vision is unaware of what’s happening. So, this begs the question: is Wanda using this town as a place to grieve, either for her brother or for Vision?
All I can say for certain is that ‘Wandavision’ is getting very interesting, and this is the most excited I’ve been for a Marvel show ever!
