Episode eight of WandaVision, titled “Previously On,” takes us all the way back to the beginning; not just of the show, but to Wanda’s first interaction with the Stark Industries bomb that would change her life. Up until now, we’ve been under the assumption that Wanda’s powers, at least in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, are a direct result of the HYDRA experiments she took part in along with her brother prior to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Through the memories that Agatha Harkness makes Wanda relive during the episode, however, we realize not everything has been as it seems.
Agatha wants to know what makes Wanda tick and how Westview came to be, so she makes the latter relive some of the most traumatic moments in her life to get answers. First up is the death of her parents, courtesy of a mortar shell through their apartment during TV time. It’s when the second Stark Industries bomb arrives that Agatha poses the question of, “Did you stop that bomb?,” to which Wanda doesn’t have an answer, assuming it didn’t go off because it was defective. “You used a probability hex,” Agatha says. “What I see here is a baby witch obsessed with sitcoms and years of therapy ahead of her,” she continues after Wanda responds they were safe for two days.
