Anyone here tried to watch this yet? The trailers looked excretable. I genuinely think the writer put two words together and tried to form a concept from it. I gave it 10 minutes but just gave up. Who thought this was a good idea? I can't believe Fiege thinks this is the TV connector that'll bridge to the next cinematic phase. It's an absolute stinker. Who is their intended audience? Olsen and Bettany deserve far, far better than this.

I really enjoyed the two episodes. It was a slow burn, to be sure, but enough to hook me.

Obviously Wanda has some control over her environment, and it's equally obvious that the two of them don't remember what happened before Westview.

I like the commercials. I read a theory online that each commercial will correspond with a traumatic event in Wanda's life. First the Stark toaster that corresponds with the Stark bomb that killed her parents, then the Strucker watch that represents Strucker giving her powers.

The nod to the second Vision & Scarlet Witch limited series, with Glamour & Illusion, was appreciated.

I wonder if Ultron is behind all this. If a copy of him did make it onto the internet, he could be making another play to inhabit Vision's body. Since Vision lost the mind stone, Ultron could be manipulating Wanda into using her Infinity Stone-based powers to bridge the gap.

OR, the second episode made me wonder whether this is a Hydra/Strucker plot. The talent show for the elementary school and the creepy, unison, "For the children" chants were odd when you consider we never see any actual children. And then Wanda is pregnant by the end of the episode. So, children are on their way. The first episode also hinted towards kids a little also, with Mrs. Hart asking why they didn't have kids yet & Agnes (Agatha) helping Wanda arrange a romantic night. Maybe Hydra is pushing to get Wanda's kids, as compensation for their lost investment in Wanda & Pietro.

What is up with Agnes? We know she is Agatha Harkness, Wanda's witch mentor in the 616. If this is all technologically driven (which it seems to be, with SWORD involvement), then what is Agnes' involvement? Maybe she's an evil psychologist a la Moonstone?

I don't know what to make of SWORD. Are they responsible for the illusion/pocket reality, or trying to figure out what is going on? Are they being manipulated by Ultron or HYDRA/Strucker?

What was up with the bee keeper? AIM? If this is HYDRA or Strucker, it could be Swarm...
