Full spoilers follow for Episode 9 of WandaVision!The mid-credits scene centres on Monica Rambeau, who showed off more of her newly-gained powers in the main bulk of the show. After talking to Jimmy Woo and asking after Darcy, Monica’s told to head to the Westview theater by an unknown agent. After arriving and seeing no one else, the agent reveals herself to be a Skrull, and explains that “an old friend of [Monica’s mother]” would like to meet with Monica – asked where, she points upwards.
This clearly references Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, who we last saw in Spider-Man: Far From Home’s post-credits scene (where he also used Skrull agents to keep in contact with Peter Parker), aboard what seemed to be a space station. It seems Monica will be joining Fury in some capacity, most likely as part of the Secret Invasion series, in which Fury and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) are investigating a sect of Skrulls who’ve infiltrated the highest levels of authority in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.The post-credits scene is slightly less easy to interpret. We see that Wanda has moved to a remote cabin in the mountains, seemingly living a simple life alone. However, a final reveal shows what appears to be an astral projection of Scarlet Witch researching the Darkhold (the book of magic Agnes referred to in the finale). As the scene ends, we hear Billy and Tommy begging for help.
With Billy and Tommy seemingly vanished, along with Wanda’s memory-created version of Vision, at the end of the series, this seems to point to the idea that parts of her sons remain alive somewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Or should that be Multiverse? We know that Scarlet Witch will be a part of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and the projection of her reading is a callback to scenes in the original Doctor Strange film, in which Stephen Strange learned magic while his body slept.
Perhaps Wanda’s interest in Strange will be in learning how pass through between realities in search of her children. This could also be a link to the widely-held theory that Mephisto will become a part of the MCU in its latest phase. While the demon lord wasn’t revealed to be WandaVision’s Big Bad, we have seen what could be a reference to him in the trailer for the Loki series. Given Mephisto has a penchant for collecting souls, perhaps Billy and Tommy have become part of his collection – which would explain why they’re begging for help, too.
But before we get to any of the above, we still have the good old-fashioned action of The Falcon and Winter Soldier to come, with the series starting on Disney+ on March 19.
