The Two WandaVision Lines That Have Huge Implications For The Series' Future

Contains spoilers for WandaVision

Marvel Studios' WandaVision is making waves everywhere as its inaugural season begins to unravel. With the first two installments in the books, fans have a pretty good idea of what they're in for — meaning they have no clue what will happen next, and will just have to get used to that feeling. The program prides itself on its unpredictability, wrapped in a familiar and even comforting aesthetic, creating a constant sensation of unease in viewers. It may look like Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) are living a happy, sitcom-like life together, somehow traveling through time with each episode, but the truth is that something is very, very wrong with this entire scenario.

As a result, fans have begun to ask questions in hope of figuring out where WandaVision will go in the coming weeks. Theories surrounding the details of Vision's survival following his death in Avengers: Infinity War and the Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Division's (better known as S.W.O.R.D.) motives have dominated the discussion amongst fans, but other, more abstract topics have popped up as well. Chief among them is who exactly is creating this classic television-inspired world, and are they friend or foe? If two seemingly innocuous lines from WandaVision's second episode are any indication, the show may be in for a very sinister twist.

Marvel's Devil may be on his way

The lines in question come during the neighborhood planning committee meeting, hosted by the queen of the cul-de-sac, Dottie (Emma Caulfield). In preparation for the community talent show ("for the children," of course), the wives of Westview give status reports on how each of their assigned jobs are coming along. Representing the rotary club, Beverly (Jolene Purdy) announces that they're completing the stage setup and decorating the town square. Unimpressed, Dottie calls her out for forgetting to grab the chairs, telling her, "The Devil's in the details, Bev." Under her breath, Wanda and Vision's nosy neighbor Agnes (Katheryn Hahn) vaguely replies, "That's not the only place he is."

It might seem like a long shot, but this brief exchange could hint toward a long-rumored villain arriving in the Marvel Cinematic Universe via WandaVision: Mephisto. Based on the folklore demon Mephistopheles, Mephisto is more or less Marvel Comics' equivalent to the Devil and is a frequent adversary to both Wanda and Vision in the comics. Fragments of Mephisto's soul even helped create the couple's twin sons, Billy and Tommy, which could also be a central plot point of the show going forward. Not to mention, he has ties to the treacherous witch Agatha Harkness, whom many fans believe is who Agnes truly is. This makes her line all the more compelling and, potentially, foreshadowing. 

To find out if there's any truth to this devilish theory, we'll simply have to keep a close eye on the next seven WandaVision episodes.
