From 'Full House' Easter Eggs to Evan Peter's surprising return, 'WandaVision' Episode 5 dropped our jaws a couple of times. Here's what you might've missed.
'WandaVision' has been giving us plenty of serious Easter Eggs since it was released, and one of the latest in it is the 'Full House' reference.
In case you missed it, Episode 5 was full of surprising 'Full House' hints. The credits to season 5 had visual references to the 1980's television series (as well as the painted motif from 'Family Ties').
In case you are among the younger generation of 'WandaVision' viewers and did not see the clues immediately, allow us to explain. 'Full House' aired on ABC from September 22, 1987, to May 23, 1995, and starred Elizabeth "Lizzie" Olsen's twin sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. Yup, she is the younger sister of the famous Olsen twins, and we are amazed at how many people didn't even know this when we wrote an article about her.
In Episode 5 credits, we saw Vision and Wanda sitting on a wide expanse of lawn with their twins for a picnic. Vision pretends he’s about to eat and then throws the food behind him when the kids aren’t watching, because well, you know, his system rejects human food.
We also get to see a montage of baby Vision's pictures. It was honestly a heartwarming and intensely cute moment, and, amazingly, older fans were quick to spot the easter eggs.
Here is a fan-made video of the credits with the 'Full House' theme song added to it.
We kinda had a hint that this is going to happen, thanks to Lizzie herself.
Back in January, Lizzie already teased that WandaVision will be giving a "wink" at 'Full House'.
When asked if WandaVision will pay homage to 'Full House' in some ways, Lizzie said:
"We have a wink, but it's mostly a 'Family Ties' reference. That episode... was mostly inspiration for that show for that specific episode, but we do wink a bit. You can't not it was a very big show."
She was then asked a follow-up question if the rumors are right about her twin sisters appearing in a cameo.
Lizzie immediately shut down the talks and answered in between laughs:
"No, they're not in it. Get rid of that."
Another big surprise that caught some of us off guard was the return of Evan Peters as Pietro, aka Quicksilver.
Episode 5 concluded with Wanda opening her door and seeing Pietro Maximoff (Evan Peters), aka Quicksilver, her brother who died in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
His presence has opened a lot of questions and theories about the future of MCU. Could this be a sign that MCU might be bringing in our favorite mutants? Were her and Pietro’s powers augmented by the Infinity stone, making the surprising appearance possible?
Evan's return is making some of us psyched at the possibility to see X-Men and any other potential mutants in the MCU. While we have to wait for more episodes to confirm our assumptions, we are pretty sure that Evan is bringing some significant things to the series.
With Wanda losing a little bit of control in the world she's created and Vision slowly realizing something is off, it's exciting to see what's going to happen in the next episodes.
