‘WandaVision’ Recap: The Key ‘Ultron’ Connection You May Have Missed & What It Could Mean

Published

‘WandaVision’ made its grand debut on Jan. 15. Wanda and Vision seem to be living the perfect sitcom life, but nothing is what it seems. There was one particular moment that hints at trouble ahead.

The first two episodes of WandaVision launched on its premiere day, and the second episode began to set the stage for the unraveling of what’s really going on. Wanda and Vision are still living out their black and white sitcom life without a care in the world. Wanda goes to a get-together in honor of the upcoming talent show with the other ladies of the neighborhood, including Agnes and Geraldine (a.k.a. Monica Rambeau). Wanda also meets the leader of the pack, Dottie. After everyone leaves, Dottie tells Wanda that she’s “heard things” about Wanda and Vision.

Wanda is caught off guard and assures Dottie that she doesn’t mean anyone “any harm.” Dottie replies, “I don’t believe you.” Suddenly the radio turns on and someone calls to Wanda. “Can you read me?” the mystery man asks. Dottie asks Wanda who is on the radio before turning to Wanda and saying, “Who are you?”

The voice continues to call out to Wanda. “Who’s doing this to you, Wanda?” the man asks. Wanda is in complete shock. A few moments later, the radio and the glass in Dottie’s hand explodes. When Dottie starts bleeding, it’s in color.

The next scene is a commercial for a Strucker watch. A close-up of the watch is shown, and there are some very telling clues about what’s at the heart of this story. The watch bears the HYDRA symbol and “HYDRA” is written in plain sight. The Strucker watch is a clear nod to Wolfgang von Strucker, one of the leaders of HYDRA. HYDRA has been one of the MCU’s biggest threats since Captain America, and it appears HYDRA may be far from extinct.

Strucker, Wanda, and Wanda’s brother Pietro were first introduced in a credits scene following Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Strucker showed List where the Scepter was and introduced him to Wanda and Pietro, who were being held prisoner in separate cells. This led right to Avengers: Age of Ultron. Strucker was eventually arrested by the Avengers and later killed by Ultron.

The reasons behind Wanda’s alternate reality are not explained in the first two episodes. If HYDRA is making a comeback, then it will be met with full force by S.W.O.R.D., the subdivision of S.H.I.E.L.D. that stands for Sentient World Observation and Response Department. The S.W.O.R.D. symbol is seen on the toy helicopter Wanda found in her yard and on the back of the Beekeeper’s suit at the end of the second episode.

Demi Lovato Reveals ‘Accidental’ Weight Loss After Ditching ‘Diet Culture’: ‘I Feel Full’ – Watch

After years of suffering with an eating disorder, Demi Lovato has found happiness — and it came when she decided to change her relationship with food and exercise.

Demi Lovato unexpectedly lost weight after letting go of her obsession with counting calories and exercising. The singer showed off her weight loss in a new Instagram video, where she revealed how her pants are now too big on her. She pulled the waistband away from her stomach to show how loosely it fit, and admitted, “I’m full of peace, serenity, joy and love today.”

Along with the weight loss video, Demi revealed how she dropped the pounds accidentally. “Accidentally lost weight,” she wrote. “I don’t count calories anymore. I don’t over exercise anymore. I don’t restrict or purge. And especially I don’t live my life according to the diet culture…and I’ve actually lost a lot of weight. This is a different experience but I still feel full. Not of food. But of divine wisdom and cosmic guidance. Peace. Serenity. Joy. And love.”

The past year was full of ups and downs for Demi. She kicked off 2020 with an incredible performance of the National Anthem at the Super Bowl, as well as an emotional performance at the Grammy Awards. It was meant to kick off her big comeback after she nearly died of a drug overdose during the summer of 2018. However, the coronavirus halted her career plans.

Instead, she focused on her personal life, and fell in love with actor Max Ehrich. They got engaged in July, after just a few months of dating, but split weeks later in September. Now that she’s single again, Demi’s priority has been herself, and she truly seems happier and healthier than ever.

Demi has been open about her struggles with an eating disorder and body image for years. However, in December 2020, she revealed that she was officially in recovery for her eating disorder for the first time. “I’m so grateful that I can honestly say for the first time in my life – my dietitian looked at me and said, ‘This is what eating disorder recovery looks like,’” Demi shared with fans, along with a photo of her stretch marks. She also urged fans who have had the same struggles as her not to “give up” on their own journeys.

So proud of my entire team.” She also referenced her production company, Norman Productions, which was named after her late dog.

As Matt James prepares to embark on fantasy suite dates with his final three women on ‘The Bachelor,’ take a look back at some of his other PDA moments this season!

There are just three women left on this season of The Bachelor, and during the March 8 episode, the ladies — Michelle Young, Rachael Kirkconnell and Bri Springs — will have the chance to go in the fantasy suite with Matt James. While this will be their first opportunity to really be intimate with the Bachelor, this season has had no shortage of PDA thus far. Matt has indulged in PG kissing, hand holding and more with various women on the show all season long!

From the moment Matt met Michelle, he was instantly connected to her. Michelle arrived late to the show along with four other women, but it didn’t stop Matt from keeping her around to the final three. The connection between Matt and Michelle was intensified on their hometown date, and they proved it by indulging in a steamy kiss before heading to meet her family. Michelle introduced Matt to the students she teaches via video chat, and he was so impressed to see her in her natural element, he just couldn’t help but plant a kiss on her mouth!

Rachael Kirkconnell

So far, Rachael is the only woman who Matt has admitted to “falling in love with.” While she became the subject of major controversy after filming ended, she was definitely one of Matt’s favorite ladies while taping the show. Matt chose Rachael to go on a shopping spree during a one-on-one date, and he was the ultimate proud boyfriend as he looked on. At one point, he even came up behind Rachael and wrapped his arms around her waist as she checked out one of her outfits in the mirror.

Bri Springs

Matt gave Bri the very first one-on-one date of the season, so he was clearly interested in her from the get-go. They connected over being raised by single mothers, and the relationship flourished from there. On Bri’s hometown date, she was so excited to see Matt, that she ran and jumped into his arms. Matt held Bri close when she wrapped her legs around his waist, and they both had huge smiles on their faces as they celebrated reuniting.

There are plenty of more PDA moments on this season of The Bachelor, though. Check out the gallery above to see Matt getting hot and heavy with his ladies.
