Disney+’s WandaVision raises a lot of questions about what’s really going on, but there may be some clues in the show’s end credits sequence.
There’s something strange going on in Disney+’s WandaVision, and even after the show’s two-episode premiere, viewers are left with more questions than answers. However, the show’s detailed end credits –which are uniform, unlike the the opening credits that vary to pay homage to different sitcoms — may be hiding a few clues.
Set to eerie music, the sequence begins with several close-ups on a television screen showing scenes of the couple from the corresponding episode. Then, the camera zooms into the screen through Vision’s eye, revealing the television’s inner workings as a seemingly infinite number of light panels. These panels are actually pixels in a liquid-crystal display, or LCD.

The pixels start rearranging to form a series of mostly red images, like a rose, glasses, a gazebo, the stairs inside Wanda and Vision’s house, the full exterior of the house, Wanda’s headdress and Vision’s likeness from the comics. After this, a single pixel falls, turning completely red, and it hits the house, causing a ripple effect that disintegrates the image. Finally, the pixels reform into a pair of rings, and the camera zooms out to reveal the show’s title on screen.
Just like the end credits demonstrate, there’s a lot going on underneath the surface of WandaVision, and neither Wanda nor Vision appear to be fully aware of what’s going on. However, given the way she reacted to the mysterious beekeeper and her ability to influence the world around them, Wanda might know something Vision doesn’t. The fact that the end credits dive into the television screen through Vision’s eye could be a hint that he will be actively seeking out the truth. In other words, Vision may be the one to uncover what’s going on, even though Wanda seems to be the one finding the clues so far.
Furthermore, it’s unclear if there’s a deeper connection between the pixel images, but since they’re predominantly red, this likely calls back to Wanda’s powers, which often take the form of glowing, red lights. These images also seem to connect directly to the episodes, with the rose possibly being from Wanda’s rose bushes, where she discovers the helicopter toy in Episode 2. The glasses are also the ones Vision wears when he’s disguised as a human, and they could hint at Vision’s quest to “see clearly” and uncover the truth about his new life. Furthermore, the gazebo is where the couple performed their magic act in Episode 2, when Wanda had to use her powers to conceal the truth about Vision from their neighbors.
Furthermore, Wanda and Vision’s picturesque house is already becoming a character in and of itself, with its interior design changing over the course of two episodes. As the traditional symbol of home, it’s interesting that their pixilated house appears to be destroyed by a pixel turning completely red, again reminiscent of Wanda’s color scheme. Even though things seem sunny now, Wanda is worried about fitting into their neighborhood and keeping the home that she and Vision have, so perhaps in trying to preserve that home, Wanda will destroy it.
Finally, the last pixel creation is a pair of rings, like the ones Wanda created for herself and Vision at the end of the first episode. This could be another clue that, like she did with the rings, Wanda actually used her powers to bring Vision back, creating this perfect life for themselves. Whether or not this theory proves to be true, the one thing Wanda and Vision are both sure of is that they love each other; however, depending on what happens next, these events might test how far they’re willing to go to be together.
