The show series centers on Avengers couple Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and the android/AI hybrid Vision (Paul Bettany). A grieving Wanda uses her powers to "resurrect" Vision, who died in Avengers: Infinity War, and create a shiny, happy suburban existence in Westview, New Jersey. Their life is depicted in the style of classic sitcoms, but as they move through the decades, the laugh track fades and reality intrudes.
On the outside of the Westview bubble, they're being monitored by S.W.O.R.D. and other law enforcement agencies. Monica Rambeau, FBI Agent Jimmy Woo and physicist Dr. Darcy Lewis are watching WandaVision just like we are!
Here's everything you need to know about how and when to watch WandaVision episode 7.
WandaVision episode 7 release date and start time
WandaVision episode 7 was released today (Friday, Feb. 19) at 3 a.m. ET.
Episode 7 is directed by Matt Shakman (who is helming the entire season). The writer is is Cameron Squires.
The run time, though, was (it turns out) not longer than normal. Coming in at 37 minutes, WandaVision episode 7 was not the hour long we expected when Director Matt Shakman told TVLine that the entire series is about six hours long. This could make the final two episodes slightly longer, or just an extra-long finale.
Disney Plus gives you access to the entire Disney vault of classics like Frozen, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast as well as newer hits like The Mandalorian, Hamilton and more. Get the most value with the $12.99 bundle that throws in Hulu and ESPN Plus.View Deal

WandaVision episode recaps
WandaVision episode 1: "Filmed Before a Live Studio Audience
Wanda and Vision move to the town of Westview in the '50s (the tone is very Dick Van Dyke Show). They meet a nosy neighbor (Kathryn Hahn) and deal with a last-minute, important dinner with the boss. But during that dinner, things go awry when the couple can't answer basic questions about their lives before moving to town. When the boss chokes on his food, Wanda commands Vision to save him. Then, everything returns to normal.
After the "credits" roll on the show-within-a-show, we see that it's been playing on a monitor with the logo for S.W.O.R.D. Comic readers will know that as the Sentient World Observation and Response Department, which monitors alien activity. However, in the MCU, it stands for Sentient Weapon Observation Response Division.
WandaVision episode 2: "Don't Touch That Dial
Wanda and Vision are now in the '60s (a la Bewitched) and performing in the neighborhood magic show. Vision gets "drunk" after swallowing a piece of gum that tangles up his inner mechanical parts. At the magic show, he accidentally reveals his abilities, but Wanda covers them up using her own powers. At home, they see a strange beekeeper appear out of a manhole on the street. Wanda says "no" and time rewinds. Wanda is suddenly pregnant and everything turns from black and white to color.
WandaVision episode 3: "Now in Color"
Wanda and Vision are extremely colorful and wearing very '70s outfits in a setting reminiscent of The Partridge Family or Brady Bunch. The doctor makes a home visit and officially declares Wanda pregnant, so the couple starts outfitting the nursery and considering baby names. Wanda's pregnancy develops rapidly and in just a few days, she is ready to give birth. Vision runs off to find the doctor, while Geraldine helps Wanda through delivery of two boys (Tommy and Billy). But afterward, when Wanda mentions her own twin, Pietro, and Geraldine makes a reference to Ultron, Wanda expels her from the sitcom Westview. (Read the full WandaVision episode 3 recap)
WandaVision episode 4: "We Interrupt This Program"
Monica Rambeau wakes up in a hospital room to discover that her mother died while she was blipped out of existence for five years by Thanos' snap. She returns to work at S.W.O.R.D. and assigned to work with FBI Agent Jimmy Woo on a strange missing persons case. She gets sucked into the anomaly around the town of Westview. To get Monica back, Jimmy brings in Dr. Darcy Lewis, an astrophysicist who figures out that Westview is broadcasting a TV signal. They watch the "WandaVision" show and identify several Westview residents as the "characters," but don't know why the phenomenon is happening. Later, Monica is ejected from Westview by Wanda.

WandaVision episode 5: "On a Very Special Episode ..."
Wanda and Vision are fully in the 1980s, with Wanda sporting big, poofy hair. Tommy and Billy grow up instantly from babies to age 5 and again to age 10. They also find a dog, Sparky. Vision goes to work, where he reads an email sent from S.W.O.R.D. That prompts him to "wake up" Norm, who panics about his real life before Vision puts him back into character. When S.W.O.R.D. sends a drone into Westview, a furious Wanda emerges and warns Acting Director Hayward to leave her alone. Upon her return, Vision confronts her over the truth about the town and its residents. Their argument is interrupted by the arrival of a surprise visitor: Pietro Maximoff, Wanda's dead twin brother. However, as Darcy Lewis notes while watching on TV, he has been "recast. (Read the full WandaVision episode 5 recap)
WandaVision episode 6: "All-New Halloween Spooktacular!"
Wanda, Vision and the twins move into the late 1990s and early 2000s, in a style reminiscent of Malcolm in the Middle. It's Halloween and Wanda and Vision are wearing costumes similar to the ones their comic book characters sported. Vision lies and says he can't join the family's outing because he has to patrol for neighborhood watch, when he's actually exploring the outer edges of Westview. Wanda and her brother, Pietro, take Billy and Tommy trick or treating. He asks her about the creation of Westview. Meanwhile, outside of town, Acting Director Tyler Hayward kicks out Monica, Jimmy and Darcy for questioning his tactics. They find a way to hack into S.W.O.R.D.'s system and Monica and Jimmy depart to meet with a contact of hers that can get her back into the Westview bubble. During a disturbing encounter with Agnes, Vision learns he's dead. He approaches the perimeter of Westview, but leaving the bubble proves deadly to him. Alerted to his predicament by her son, Wanda uses her powers to extend Westview's borders, bringing in the S.W.O.R.D. camp.
