WandaVision Director Addresses Fans Who Believe That Scarlet Witch Was Let Off The Hook For Westview

WandaVision Director Addresses  Fans Who Believe That Scarlet Witch Was Let Off The Hook For Westview

WandaVision Episode 9, titled "The Series Finale," concludes the show's storylines while opening others for the MCU's Phase Four. A significant part of the finale was Wanda Maximoff (aka Scarlet Witch), finally seeing her magic's effects on Westview's residents. But the ending left many fans wondering whether the Scarlet Witch got away with her actions. However, series director Matt Shakman recently responded to these questions.

He said, "I don't think we're letting Wanda off the hook. She realizes in that final episode what she's done. She's brought to that moment by Agatha — 'Are you a hero? Are you a villain? Heroes don't torture people.' — and she tries to let them go in that moment but realizes that she's not fully able to say goodbye to her family yet. So, the crisis in the middle of the episode is important to her story, that she is ultimately moving towards accepting the loss of Vision and her family. The show was always about grief and how we come back from a loss, so it always had to end with her accepting that loss and accepting this new mantle of the Scarlet Witch and what that means. But that final scene, she comes into town; it's her walk of shame as she walks through town and feels the daggers being stared at her, meant to be this indictment of her. She is a pariah, and they do not forgive her. Monica's conversation is about two people who have bonded over grief and loss, understanding the motives behind it. That doesn't mean it excuses it, and Wanda acknowledges that. She flies away from this town knowing that it wouldn't welcome her back."
