I screencapped it over the last week or so and I discovered lots of fun things I missed while watching it first time round.
The Stark toaster light is the only splash of colour in the whole of episode one (until the stinger anyway) but it’s subtle enough that I didn’t actually notice it at first. Red for Scarlet Witch, red for Iron Man, and of course red for danger.
Hayward is almost certainly perving on this woman I think, which is 100% in character for him.
Norm’s real name, Abilash Tandon, is given in one of the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it research scenes. And his driver’s licence is dated 2026, the year I’m pretty sure the MCU is at now taking the lost five years into account.
I love how both Wanda and Vision are looking at the camera at the end of episode four, especially since that’s the episode it’s revealed people in-universe are watching them.
Vision’s newspaper says, “More dramatic details about the lights in the sky.” That would’ve been the drones SHIELD were flying in, I think.
Wanda’s bedsheets are, of course, all hexagons…
I’ve pointed this one out before but I love this split-second message in the opening credits of episode 7. It’s a message from Agatha, perhaps, or from Wanda’s own subconcious.
The news screens at SWORD read “celebration for the returned” and “families reunited” i.e. the exact two things Wanda isn’t getting to do.
Vision’s body is being kept in room 101, appropriate seeing as his death and dissection was Wanda’s worst fear. (I put this one on Reddit, we’ll see how that works out.)
[EDIT: Not well. Despite how often it comes up in political discourse, turns out far fewer people than I thought have read 1984.]
I might have mentioned this before as well, but I love the little Wizard of Oz reference here.
“The power of mother earth” seems to sum up Agatha’s witchiness nicely. (Or what little we learned of it, I’m still not exactly sure how her magic works.)
Mr Hart’s choking foreshadows what’s to come, Wanda accidentally choking all the townspeople. Maybe she accidentally did it to Mr Hart too.
An interesting juxaposition here since essentially a “big red” thing “kidnapped” everyone in the town. And another Wizard of Oz reference… which doubles as a meta reference since Sam Raimi directed Oz the Great and Powerful and he’ll be directing the next movie Scarlet Witch appears in!
