New chapters of the nine-part Disney Plus present arrive each Friday. Beginning with episodes 1 and a couple of, we're recapping every episode and diving into the mysterious actuality by which witchy Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and awkward android Imaginative and prescient (Paul Bettany) discover themselves.


Listed below are the Easter eggs we have noticed in episode 3. However be warned: Spoilers for all episodes!

Welcome to Westview 

All indicators level to Wanda and Imaginative and prescient being trapped in some type of constructed actuality. Like, precise literal indicators: The billboard welcoming guests to the city of Westview hints at that synthetic nature with the tagline "House is the place you make it." 


For the youngsters

Imaginative and prescient needs to name the child Billy, after William Shakespeare, and presents one other reference to the unreal nature of the truth ("All of the world's a stage..."). Wanda prefers all-American title Tommy.


They're in luck, as a result of it seems they're having twins! Within the comics, Wanda's need for youngsters has led to a number of dramatic (and tragic) storylines. 


Her twin boys have been revealed to be fragments of the demon Mephisto, who could or could not make an look within the present. Extra not too long ago, Wanda's grown-up sons Billy and Tommy joined the Younger Avengers staff as heroes Wiccan and Pace.


In episode 3, the bizarre nature of Wanda's being pregnant is evident from its unnervingly accelerated progress, however there are additionally hints that the infants are indirectly synthetic. 


All through episode 3, Wanda unconsciously brings life to numerous inanimate issues, together with paper butterflies and a portray of a stork. She's additionally indirectly linked to the expertise and infrastructure of the Brady Bunch-style setting, her contractions affecting family devices and blowing out the ability.


The rewind

The second Imaginative and prescient truly voices suspicions concerning the unusual actuality by which they reside, the present glitches. 


Imaginative and prescient is skipped again a number of seconds, however this time his suspicions are gone. It is not clear how that occurred, however when the beekeeper emerged from the manhole in episode 2, we clearly noticed it was Wanda who did the rewinding. 


The query stays whether or not another person is answerable for actuality and blocked Imaginative and prescient seeing the reality, or whether or not Wanda herself is in cost -- and she or he'll even manipulate her beloved Imaginative and prescient to dam out harsh actuality

The advertisements

In episode 1 we noticed a Stark Industries toaster. 


In episode 2 it was a Hydra watch. And in episode Three the evil Hydra model returns with a industrial for Hydra Soak Luxurious Tub Cleaning soap. The primary two adverts appeared to be drawn from Wanda's recollections, whereas this one appears linked to the stress of impending parenthood.


The voice-over once more hints at a synthetic actuality ("Escape to a world all your individual..."). In the meantime the advert's tagline is "Discover the goddess inside." That would imply two issues: Wanda may free goddess-like energy inside herself, or it may imply {that a} goddess is indirectly trapped inside one thing -- maybe referring to the constructed actuality Wanda and Viz reside in.


As soon as once more the actors within the advertisements are Victoria Blade and Ithamar Enriquez. The recurring presence of the identical man and lady in Wanda's recollections suggests it may very well be her mother and father.


No house 

Geraldine is described as having "no house." We don't know the importance of her story about marshmallow moon-men and her hiccuping boss -- the title "Haddox" does not come up within the comics that we are able to consider. Geraldine is, nonetheless, the one individual within the present who remembers real-world occasions. 


Wanda remembers her twin brother Pietro (AKA Quicksilver) however it's Geraldine who reminds her he was killed in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Wanda coldly ejects Geraldine out of the sitcom actuality, yeeting her previous some type of forcefield to land in a area the place she's swarmed by armed brokers.


 It appears probably this official-looking set up is one thing to do with SWORD, the group that seems to be observing occasions and whose image Geraldine wears.

Performed by Teyonah Parris, Geraldine is reported to be a grown-up model of Monica Rambeau, final seen as a younger lady within the film Captain Marvel. If she's now in the true world, we could get some solutions in episode 4.


The songs

Every week a pop music from the period presents some type of deeper which means. Though the present appears to have skipped to the 1970s, this week it is 1967 hit Daydream Believer by The Monkees.


 Strains like "Cheer up, sleepy Jean" recommend some type of enforced sleep or that the setting is a few type of dream or imagined actuality. Although the road "Oh, what can it imply?" may confer with viewers attempting to determine what is going on on. 


The paint

Clearly, everytime you see any object or textual content on display screen it is price taking a better look -- that is how eagle-eyed followers noticed the pivotal comics reference on the wine bottle in episode 1. On this installment, the paint cans utilized by Wanda to brighten the nursery bear the title "Simser." 


One other reference to Marvel continuity? No, it is the title of the present's storyboard artist Jeremy Simser. Not all the things is a clue.
