A Big Name Drop On 'WandaVision' Changes Everything

Bill Bradley
·2-min read

No one likes a name-dropper, Geraldine.

The third episode of “WandaVision” — a “Brady Bunch”-inspired installment — has Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) go through an entire pregnancy in just hours, which, due to her powers, resulted in power outages and rainstorms (is this a pregnancy or Jumanji?). There were also suspicious neighbors whispering behind Vision’s (Paul Bettany) back and a curious skin HYDRA-tion commercial.

However, the biggest, series-changing moment came when Geraldine (Teyonah Parris) brought up a name from Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) past. And, honestly, she probably really regrets it.

While looking at her twin boys with Geraldine (yeah, Wanda has twins basically overnight), Wanda mentions how she was also a twin. She had a brother named Pietro, she says in her former Sokovian accent.

Of course, Pietro/Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) was killed by Ultron, and Geraldine makes the mistake of mentioning his evil super-robot murderer.

Let this be a lesson. Never bring up 2015′s highly criticized “Avengers: Age of Ultron” to Elizabeth Olsen.

The moment seemingly shattered Wanda’s sitcom fantasy, and she pressed Geraldine for more info.

It also didn’t help that Geraldine was wearing a symbol for Marvel intelligence agency S.W.O.R.D., which Wanda had been seeing in various places throughout “WandaVision.” As much as Geraldine tried to play it off, the damage was done.

In a moment that changes the show, Wanda ejects “Geraldine” (who we know is actually named Monica Rambeau, a possible agent for S.W.O.R.D.) back into the real world.
