WandaVision Boss on the key of who broadcasts Wanda’s sitcom
WandaVision’s final foray finally answered some of our burning questions … and then quickly introduced another important question.
In episode 4 that revealed Darcy Lewis and Jimmy Woo noticed an odd censorship of the Wanda and Vision sitcom: For example, when Jimmy tried to contact Wanda on a swim club radio on the glamorous episode – what we know resulted in Dottie getting her hand on broken glass cut – the episode Darcy was watching jumped a few seconds ahead and skipped the radio incident entirely.
In discussing this strange twist with TVLine, showrunner Jac Schaeffer admits that in the Westview bubble, “so much is not understood what is going on”. While Schaeffer can’t pinpoint exactly what or who is behind the sitcom’s censored moments, she confirms that we’ll get more responses as the season progresses.
“The next few episodes will clarify a little more about this situation as the process progresses,” she suggests.
Among Schaeffer’s other teasers …
* Though episode 4 almost completely overridden the sitcom existence of Wanda and Vision, Schaeffer says the series will “absolutely return” to the Westview we saw and “put what together” [Wanda and Vision’s] The trip is for the rest of the show. “
* Based on a threatening teaser by star Paul Bettany, who hinted at TVLine in more modern sitcoms that “couples don’t necessarily love each other that much”, Schaeffer warns of “complicated times” for the title couple in a similar way. “[Viewers have] invested so much in Wanda and Vision and their love story and marriage in this city, ”she explains. “And as with all marriages … there is disagreement, and that was always something that really interested me about this show – the domestic image of the two of them and the authenticity of this room.”
* After Schaeffer saw a predominantly positive response to Darcy and Jimmy’s report, he points to an “organic” development of their working relationship over the course of the show. “[In the script] We don’t really emphasize the fact that they click and become buddies right away … but people really seem to jump over it and I love them together, ”she says.
Although Schaeffer admits that the astrophysicist and FBI agent are “consistently underestimated” in the workplace, “they see themselves primarily as good at their jobs and as professional, talented and good people. We always had the hope that they would align very quickly. “(With reporting by Keisha Hatchett)
