So, Wandavision?

So, this seems consistent with what we see:
The closer you are to Wanda, the more active you are - the farther folks are from Wanda (or perhaps more accurately, the less involved people are in the action of the "sitcom"), the more they become like lawn ornaments.
The more active you are in the Hex, the more aware you are. Vision and Peitro are very close to Wanda, so they have more awareness and free will. Agnes became less aware the farther she was from the center of the action.
Just to build on what you were saying, there also seems to be the "ethical" points that Pietro brought up - there's been no outside children until this episode, so she must have been keeping them asleep until now regardless of how close/fare they were. (He also mentioned for the most part couples staying together.)

Yes, which puts a new spin on episode 2's creepy "for the children" refrain.
 

I think it's interesting how they're still going for the "evil government people want to stop superheroes!" plot point from Captain America: Civil War. I'm not sure if there is a true "villain" in this show, but I've got a feeling that Hayward is going to be the closest thing we get to a villain. I could see them making Pietro be Mephisto, as Wanda seems to not know why Pietro is there, but I'm not sure on that.

I wonder when we’ll find out what Darcy found out about Hayward; she probably won’t remember/be able to communicate it while inside the hex. Unless Vision wakes her.

I am going to call this right now: There will be no Mephisto. Disney was never goint to put the "Devil" into this show. They theoretically could do a villain with powers, but they'd more likely use Grim Reaper, Master Pandemonium, or even Blackheart, before they'd do Mephisto. They might use Mephisto, Blackheart, or some other "Devil" character in Helstrom, but not here. It would have to be a horror-style show for that. Mark my words.

Yeah. I'm really excited for the next few episodes. The stakes are getting higher. I love how this show is able to keep us engaged and guessing like this. It's a nice feeling.

There was just The Stand, which was quite good.
I only get past the first couple of episodes. It was okay, but . . . . not scary. Does it get better further in? I suppose so, if you felt it was "quite good".

Can't be worse then the previous TV adaptation . . . .

She managed to send the files to Woo before she left the room, didn’t she?

Yup. I missed it because she didn’t say anything about it, but we are briefly shown her typing his email adress (or whatever) just after she found out whatever she found. Real easy to miss, though (at least for me on my phone). Good catch!
 

ART!

Hero
So far, what he's shown is an extreme dislike and intolerance of Wanda herself, and I'm not yet sure whether that's entirely a genuine dislike, or if he's deliberately painting her as a terrorist threat who must be destroyed, because she knows too much about whatever he had SWORD doing with Vision's remains.
It's possible he knows about the existence of mutants (however recent), fears/hates them, and knows Wanda is one.
Agnes was just as unresponsive as the others . . . until Vision gave her a "jolt" of his yellow energy. She was then able to talk to him "out of character". When he jolted her again, she returned to being "Agnes" and drove back into the center of town.
...which is weird if he doesn't have a Mind Stone in him. Interesting weird!

Yeah I dont think Mephisto will show up in WandaVision either nor do I think Blackheart will be used, but note that a stained glass window depicting a devil is shown in the Loki trailer (which besides the comic storyline, is another reason why people and jumping at Mephisto).
I’m ready to see Nightmare if they do in fact bring in an currently unknow supernatural villain, but don’t think they will.

Any guesses which show they'll be riffing off next episode? I'm not really familiar with any family-based sitcoms from the 2000s, though I'm sure there were plenty.

I did have one brief horrified vision of Hannah Montana, but hopefully they have better candidates to choose from.

The Office and Modern Family I believe
 





It is odd that Vision finds Agnes in her car at the edge of town. It seems to me like Agnes made an attempt to escape, but was stopped just before she reached the edge of the anomaly. Considering Agnes is a main cast member of Wanda's sitcom world, I'm surprised she even got that far. It seems Wanda's hold over the town is slowly slipping. Herb also seemed more aware of his state. And then there's what Agnes said:

"No one leaves. Wanda won't even let any of us think about it. All is lost."

It felt to me like whoever was previously controlling Agnes is now controlling Quicksilver, given that he’s now the one hanging around keeping an eye on the family in much the same way she was previously.

Perhaps that gave Agnes a chance to try and escape?

One thing’s for sure, this show is setting a high bar for the shows that will follow.

Between episode 4 and 6 we binge watched 5 seasons of The Wire so took a break.

I'm not sure if Wanda is evil or has gone dark or she's doing it because she has to or is the least bad option.

Sure there's something tragic going on. Next week on Wandavision.
