WandaVision is a Marvel in Predictable Programming
The final episode of WandaVision, appropriately titled ‘Series Finale’ has aired and fans seem to be split on their reactions. Up until this point the series by Matt Shakman, starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany received near-universal praise. But the final episode was the lowest rated of the 9 episode season according to Rotten Tomatoes.
Despite, that it still sits at 88% and according to social media the response looks just as positive. Fans didn’t get the big payoffs they were hoping for in Wanda and Visions’ small part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was no multiverse reveal, no mutant conspiracy, and no Doctor Strange or Reed Richards.
What fans got, was exactly what they were going to get all along. A predictable, yet moving story about a woman suffering from grief. Who also happens to be a chaos magic-wielding superhero.
