WandaVision and the Stories We Tell Ourselves
WandaVision has had a lot to say about grief. "What is grief but love persisting?" has already become a meme, less than a week after Vision first used the phrase to attempt to comfort Wanda after her brother's death. It's a poignant sentiment, made more so by the fact that it was a true memory and not Wanda's recreation of Vision—but it was also the most blatant message on grief in the show. A little more subtle was the way Wanda's arc on was structured as a progression through the stages of grief. Her denial keeps her from realizing what it is she's done; her anger sends Monica flying back through the hex; she bargains with Vision as he begins to realize something is not right; she's depressed after Vision attempts to leave the hex; and finally she finds her acceptance as she lets the hex come down.
There was no reason for the black notebook to be in the Free Little Library. It was very obviously not a book—completely blank and rather unassuming, only the size of Jill’s palm. She grabbed it anyway, along with a dog-eared copy of Les Misérables, and put both of them in her grocery bag on top of the bananas.
