WARNING: SPOILERS for WandaVision episode 7, 'Breaking The Fourth Wall'.

We're heading into the home stretch of WandaVision, with the series seventh episode, and final sitcom homage, 'Breaking The Fourth Wall', airing this week.

After the big events of episode six, this episode has Wanda starting to lose control of her Hex, Vision teaming up with Darcy as he continues his search for answers, and concludes with a massive reveal that changes everything we know about the show so far.

Here are all the Easter eggs and important moments in 'Breaking The Fourth Wall'

WandaVision is now a Mockumentary.

For it's final sitcom homage, WandaVision tackles mockumentary style sitcoms, such as Modern Family and The Office. Wanda, Darcy, Agnes, and Vision all give Modern Family style on-camera interviews, while Vision looks directly into the camera, breaking the fourth wall in a reference to The Office's Jim Halpert.

The episode's intro also reflects the current state of Wanda and Vision's relationship, with Vision's name mostly absent from the opening credits.

Throughout the episode, strange glitches appear in Wanda's home. Starting with Tommy and Billy's video game, and later the milk, the situation culminates in the whole house going haywire. Everything shifts back through the various sitcom decades, entirely out of Wanda's control.

Wanda believes that this may be a symptom of her losing control. However, as it turns out, it is more likely a sign that she was never fully in control in the first place.

To the relief of many fans, the show wasted no time revealing the fate of Darcy Lewis. While she was transformed into a member of the circus of S.W.O.R.D agents, she is quickly restored to her original personality by Vision, who recognised her as having tried to help him. The pair then embark on a quest to get Vision home.

While they face a few delays on the way, this gives Darcy time to tell Vision the story of his past, including his two previous deaths. The conversation helps Vision to be more understanding of Wanda's actions, and hopefully, could go some way to repairing their relationship when they reunite.

Nexus Capsules

'Breaking The Fourth Wall's commercial was for Nexus capsules, pills apparently used to treat Depression. On the surface, the ad and the pills' side effects are most obviously referencing Wanda's current mental state, and the likelihood that she will have to give up the illusion of Westview, and possibly Vision with it.

However, it may also reference the fact that in the comics, Wanda is the Nexus being of Earth-616, the main Marvel comics universe. Nexus beings can affect reality and probability, and are vital to the stability of the Multiverse. For this reason, Nexus beings are often monitored by the Time Variance Authority, a group set to play a major role in the upcoming Loki series.

After her attempt to re-enter Westview in a S.W.O.R.D rover fails, Monica, going against all advice, charges the barrier in a last ditch attempt to get through. The sequence is packed with Easter eggs, mostly voice clips from Captain Marvel, culminating in this memorable Carol Danvers quote:

"Your Mom is lucky. When they were handing out kids, they gave her the toughest one."

Monica emerges into Westview with glowing blue eyes, obviously having gained some form of abilities from passing through the barrier a third time. While the full extent of Monica's new powers are unseen as of yet, she does use them to protect herself when confronting Wanda, appearing to almost get through to her before Agnes intervenes.

Agatha All Along!

When WandaVision began, Agnes was Wanda and Vision's helpful neighbour, but now we know that is far from the case. Agnes invites Wanda over on the pretence of lending a friendly ear after her confrontration with Monica, however, Wanda notices something amiss when she realises that Tommy and Billy, whom Agnes was supposed to be babysitting, are missing. Wanda heads into the basement in search of the boys, but is soon intercepted by Agnes, who reveals her true identity as Agatha Harkness.

As it turns out, Agatha has been manipulating Wanda and the events of the show right from the beginning. Among other things, she orchestrated the death of Sparky, the arrival of the false Pietro, and was even at least partially responsible for Wanda expanding the hex to save Vision. The scene leading up to the reveal also provided some hints towards the even bigger baddies Agatha could be working for, such as a book that could be the Necronomicon, or a fly in the window that fans believe could be a reference to Mephisto.

The return of the Post-Credits scene

After six episodes without one, Marvel's beloved post credits scenes returned in 'Breaking The Fourth Wall'. While searching for a way into Agnes/Agatha's house inthe hope of continuing her talk with Wanda, Monica is suddenly confronted by the false Pietro before the screen goes black once more.

As WandaVision heads into it's own endgame, fans are taking the return of the post credits scene as a sign that the sitcom is over, and we are now back in the true MCU.

We can't wait to see how it all wraps up in the final two episodes.
