WandaVision's Post-Credits Scene That You Can't Miss

WandaVision episode 7 finally gives us a post-credits scene. Yes, the tried and true MCU tradition has finally made its way to one of the Marvel Studios Disney+ shows. Sure, you could probably argue that the fact that the first few episodes had “sitcom credits” before the actual credits rolled was kind of a meta-joke about the credits themselves being the post-credits scenes on this show (and I’m not entirely sure that wasn’t intentional), but in terms of an actual stinger or tease for future episodes? Nothing until now.
But the thing is, this isn’t a “big reveal” so much as it is a shocking tease of more mysteries that await. Here’s what we think that WandaVision episode 7 mid-credits scene means.
WandaVision's post-credits scene: Preview
After Wanda descends into Agnes’s basement in search for her missing boys, she discovers that her neighbor’s basement is probably not up to code and is definitely more like a witch’s den. That’s because her friendly neighbor is actually the witch Agatha Harkness, the self-proclaimed “other magic girl” living in Westview, as reported by Polygon.
The episode ends with Agatha using some of her purple magic on Wanda as she takes over “the show” we’ve been watching. We are then treated to a catchy intro to another show, Agatha All Along. In the musical opening, we see that Agatha has been pulling the strings behind most of the events in Westview, including controlling Pietro.
The show we’ve been watching then cuts to its usual credits. However, unlike every other episode of WandaVision, there’s a cut to a post-credits scene. In it, Monica Rambeau is sneaking around Agnes’s house trying to reconnect with Wanda after Agnes takes her away in an earlier encounter. Monica’s snooping leads her to the entrance to the villain’s witchy basement. Before she can make sense of her discovery, she is interrupted by Pietro.
As he sneaks up behind Monica, he surprises her by telling, “snooper’s gonna snoop.” It’s unclear if Pietro is still under Agatha’s control or not. Either way, Monica reacts with shock and the scene ends on a cliffhanger.
The rest of episode 7 has plenty of other payoffs that fans have been curious about, such as exploring what happens if Monica Rambeau enters the hex a third time, more hexagons, and plenty of Billy and Tommy.
Each new episode of WandaVision brings unexpected changes. Most of the ideas are ripped from what we’ve come to expect from each era of television the show pulls inspiration from. The show’s seventh episode is the first time the series has pulled from the modern cinematic tradition, often credited to Marvel, of the post-credits scene. Where the show gathers its ideas from next is anyone’s guess.
What’s in the Basement?
After her confrontation with Wanda Maximoff, Monica Rambeau (and how cool is it that we basically just had a Spectrum/Scarlet Witch showdown in the MCU?) is poking around Agatha’s house (that’s number 2804, two doors down from Wanda and Vision who live at 2800). She opens the door to the basement and spots some apparently magical vegetation, according to Den Of Geek.
We’re not entirely sure what that vegetation is. Could it be an offshoot of the mystical Wundergore Everbloom from the comics? Is it something that’s feeding off both Wanda and Agatha’s magical energy? Could it be a representation of the true villain of the show (assuming, of course, that the big “it was Agatha all along” reveal is misdirection…which we think it is)? We’re currently trying to think of any other Marvel villains with a fondness for both purple and horticulture.
“Snoopers gonna snoop…”
Monica is interrupted by “Pietro Maximoff,” played by Evan Peters. Here, Uncle Peter looks like he’s on his way to a Phish concert or something, and speaks in a menacing drawl “snoopers gonna snoop.”
It’s so menacing that it lends credence to what Wanda told Billy and Tommy earlier in the episode: that this isn’t actually their uncle. So we’re once again back to asking if Peters isn’t playing a “recast Pietro,” then just who the hell is he supposed to be, anyway?
Who is Evan Peters Really Playing?

Is he just a magical minion of Agatha’s? A bystander being manipulated by her magic just as surely as Wanda is manipulating the other citizens of Westview? He does give off “actual horror movie villain’s creepy groundskeeper” vibes here.
Since he was first introduced, fans have wondered if Peters’ mysterious “Pietro” was in fact a much more powerful force masquerading as Wanda’s dead brother. In particular, Mephisto comes to mind. Although we have some other ideas about who the big bad might actually be, as well.
Perhaps there’s an outside chance that if he’s just being manipulated, maybe there really is nothing sinister about this Pietro, and whatever creepy action he seems like he’s about to take here is just an unfortunate misunderstanding. Maybe he really IS the Pietro from another corner of the multiverse (we still can’t entirely rule that out) and this is just yet one more piece of expert misdirection on the part of the show. For that matter, maybe that air of menace present here is just one more expert piece of Marvel misdirection.
After all, if he wasn’t important, it seems unlikely that they wouldn’t have made him such an important part of the first post-credits scene the show has done.
It makes sense that we haven’t gotten a credits scene until now. WandaVision has taken its time in submerging its audience into the sitcom homages within, not even revealing its major antagonist until the end of Episode 7. A credits scene earlier would have tipped their hand, and half the fun of watching WandaVision each week is not knowing what to expect, says Collider.
But we’ve reached a major plot twist in the show, and it looks like the final two episodes will be heavy on action as the antagonist is now in full view. Look for much more WandaVision Episode 7 coverage all weekend on KnowInsiders.
