The Weekly Bugle Vol 17
WandaVision Episode 7 kept us on the edge of our seats the entire time. Monica coming into her own, the twins, Agnes, and Vision’s Jim Halpert camera look? Breaking the Fourth Wall had it all and we cannot wait to discuss our latest theories.
Spoiler warning if you have not watched WandaVision Episode 7.
WandaVision Episode 7 Breakdown
Episode 7 of WandaVision had a lot of I told you so moments for us which didn’t make them any less satisfying to witness. Jana called it way back on Episode 5 that Agnes was behind poor old Sparky’s death. And all along we have said, the entire fandom has said, that Agnes=Agatha.
In a not-so-shocking reveal, WandaVision finally lets that black cat out of the bad with one of the best reveals and a theme song that is a total bop.
We also learned that Pietro is a FAKE (told you so) and Hayward was officially attempting to bring Vision back online as a sentient weapon (told you so). Monica came into her powers or rather began to show them off as she bravely entered the hex to save Darcy, Wanda, and the townspeople from Hayward’s schemes.
Whether she will be Photon or Spectrum remains to be seen but she is definitely rocking those blue eyes of power. Puppet Pietro better watch his back, snoopers gonna snoop.
The commercial this week has many meanings but at least none of them are a child starving to death. We discuss Nexus and what relevance it could have to Doctor Strange 2 and the upcoming Loki series.
During the Agatha reveal, we entered her creepy basement complete with an ominous glowing book. We have some theories as to what that book is and who has still yet to reveal themselves as the ultimate orchestrator of evil.

Brilliant. Bad. A little bit mad. The new trailer for Disney’s live-action Cruella dropped last week and it gave off some Harley Quinn/Joker vibes but in a good way. We love how incredibly evil and deranged she appears in the trailer. After all, villains should be villains.
Cruella is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution and follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly Haute.
But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable, and revenge-bent Cruella.
Cruella is in theaters May 28, 2021.
One of Ashley’s favorite games, Mortal Kombat, is returning to the big screen in a definite upgrade from 1995. It promises to be filled with all the violence of the game with all types of graphic details.
