Could Ralph be Not-Piedro?
It was an annoying point last episode that they never followed up on the ep before's after credit scene.

I thought Not-Piedro was Agatha.
I want you to panic

"Woke" is now almost exclusively used by those who seek to deride it, those who chafe at the activism from which it sprang. Opponents to the idea are seeking to render it toxic. They use it to stand in for change itself, for evolution, for an accurate assessment of history and society that makes them uncomfortable and deflates their hagiographic view of American history.

I also don't know how Not-Pietro furthered Agatha's plans. But I also don't know Agatha's plans  :lol:

Hopefully it will all make sense in the end, but I have this nagging fear it won't.

Josquius

The whole series is pretty clearly setting up Dr Strange 2.
The next round of Marvel looks to be going big on magic as well as the multiverse.

Her lackey/creation for sure, but not her. I'm sure they've appeared on-screen together then there was the after credit scene.

Agatha told Wanda she posed as her dead brother to try to get her to confide her secrets. That didn't work and so she used the direct approach.

Yeah - I've been quite enjoying this, but I do feel like once we get to the end it won't be nearly as clever as We thought it was.

Yeah, she says it was not literally her, "just my eyes and ears".

Representing the Crown in Languish too?

I guess it had to be expected but slightly disappointed this ended with the usual bloated Marvel SFX extravaganza.

Habbaku

The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

NOOOOO, I was looking forward to watching it.  :weep:

But maybe with lowered expectations, I will enjoy it more now  :D

GF won't stop shouting about White Vision.
Which is worrying. Sounds rather nazi.
Wonder why he flew away.

Scarlet witch costume looks very 90s superhero.

Nice fight conclusion with the runes.

PSA: There are two scenes during the ending credits this time.
Person. Woman. Man. Camera. TV.

Barrister

I agree - for such a weird show it was kind of disappointing it had such a conventional Marvel ending, but probably to be expected.

Mrs B was frustrated with "Well what happened to White Vision"?

I have to admit that Wanda saying goodbye to her family caught me in the feels.

Isn't that a dark magic book Wanda is reading at the end?  Josh was going "is she a bad guy now"?  I don't know Josh...

Habbaku

Yes, that was the Darkhold she was going through at the end. Very much not a good book to be combing through.
