Instead, the end of Episode 7 revealed that WandaVision's main antagonist had been hiding in plain sight the entire time. Agatha Harkness, the neighbor we've known as Agnes, played by Kathryn Hahn, has her own magical powers, and has pulled Wanda's strings throughout the series, generally tormenting our titular hero over the course of the series. The last seven episodes of the series. .
As the musical number at the end of episode 7 says, “Who pulled each string? It has been Agatha from the beginning. More worrying for Wanda Maximoff, the song also says that "it's too late to fix something now that everything has gone wrong."
Also, we learn that Agatha Harkness killed the dog Sparky, the WandaVision family pet. It is unforgivable.

Who is Agatha Harkness in the comics?
In Marvel Comics, Agatha Harkness appeared in number 94 of the Fantastic Four, in 1970. Initially considered an expert in the art of raising children, it is revealed that she is a witch; It would later be revealed that she has been alive for hundreds of years and was present during the Salem Witch Trials.
In the comics, Agatha Harkness was Wanda's mentor and eventual enemy: she revealed that Wanda's children were made up of parts of the Marvel villain Mephisto, and Wanda later murdered her during a particularly difficult time for his character in the decade of the decade. 2000. As always with Marvel comic book characters, Agatha would not remain completely dead forever.
That's pretty much all the background you need to get into the series.
Is Agatha Harkness the real WandaVision villain?

WandaVision's biggest unanswered question to date has been who the show's villain is. Finally, the Episode 7 reveal, where Wanda enters Agnes's basement in search of her children, Billy and Tommy, reveals that her neighbor is actually Agatha Harkness, and that she has her. -Even magical powers, as well as many items related to black magic scattered around. around your basement.
The next musical number, which Agatha plays on Wanda's head, clearly shows that Agnes is the antagonist of the series, and always has been.
With only two episodes to go, it seems unlikely that Mephisto, or any other entity speculated by Marvel, will step in and prove himself the "real" villain.
But Mephisto's theory can't be completely ruled out yet, and here's why. Mephisto's origins were recently detailed in an Avengers comic, Avengers number 38, in the last volume of the series; this particular number was published late last year. It represents the Earth formed four billion years ago in the Marvel Universe, and Mephisto appears as… a fly. We rechecked the issue on Marvel Unlimited after the episode was released.
You probably noticed the fly in Agnes's house at the end of Episode 7. Could Mephisto still be a part of WandaVision's history, yet to be revealed? Could this be Agnes's invisible husband, "Ralph"?
The main problem with this theory is that this particular comic was released in late 2020, while WandaVision started filming much earlier. It could be a mere coincidence.
Some have speculated that the Marvel comics son in Agatha's universe, Nicholas Scratch, was also hiding in plain sight from the series. Agatha's bunny is called Mr. Scratchy. Did you use your magical powers to turn your own son into a pet? It is a theory that we have seen shared many times. If that's true, it's a great detail.
The book seen in Agatha's basement at the end of Episode 7 is believed to be Darkhold, a book of powerful black magic that has appeared repeatedly in Marvel comics.
What WandaVision events is Agatha Harkness responsible for?

Almost everything that happened to Wanda or Vision in this set of episodes is due to the actions of Agatha Harkness (or SWORD, in several other cases). Here's what the Episode 7 ending revealed that Agatha is responsible for during the last seven episodes of the series:
- Wanda and Vision's chaotic magic show that took place in Episode 2.
- Herb, Wanda and Vision's neighbor, acts strange with Agnes in episode 3.
- Pietro's entire existence in Westview, apparently the fact that Wanda saw his corpse briefly suggests that his Walking Corpse is the real deal, however. Some have speculated that "Pietro" could also be Agatha's son Nicholas, but the rabbit theory makes more sense on this front. Clearly, we need to learn more about this "imposter."
- During last week's Halloween-themed episode, in which Agnes appeared to be on the outskirts of town, she faked it, likely to get Wanda and Vision off the trail.
- The death of the dog Sparky. REST IN PEACE.
- Whispering, "Do you think maybe this is what you deserve?" behind the camera during Wanda's mock documentary-style monologue in episode 7.
- Oh, and although it's not related to the events of the show, it did once bit a child.
However, what we didn't see in these flashbacks is exactly how Westview and Hex were born. Did Wanda create the city? Is it Agatha Harkness? Or was it a combination of the two? It is a subject of much debate. The exact origins of the city have yet to be revealed, but we hope to find out how it all turned out in the next two episodes.
Has Agatha Harkness brought Vision back to life?
This part was not explored in the end, but we would hope that Agatha's magic probably helped bring Vision back to life in the world of Westview sitcoms. That's because, like Pietro when his corpse briefly appeared to Wanda in Episode 6, Vision's Walking Corpse without the Mind Stone was seen in its "real" form in Episode 4 of the series.
Similarly, we can assume that Agatha is partly responsible for the existence of Wanda's children Billy and Tommy, but that is another element of the program that needs to be explained.
Agatha's magic, therefore, is almost certainly part of the reason our synthetic Avenger still lives. But we'll have to wait and see the truth behind the Avenger's rebirth.
