“I think we will see a grieving Wanda going into the universes where Vision is still alive. Once There, she removes the alternate version of herself. She then impersonates that “version” of herself to dwell her life with Vision. Each time she does, it goes properly for some time, therefore the sitcom half, however inevitably it goes sideways. Either her deception is found, or her mere existence damages that universe’s timeline too severely to remain.

So she begins once more, supplanting herself in the identical time in one other universe. Like the film groundhog day, she performs out the identical occasions hoping that that is the universe the place she and Vision will be collectively. Each episode, we’d see the identical sequence of occasions however set in a unique universe”
