Wanda wakes up without Vision by her side, still in her Halloween costume, feeling guilty for the fit of rage she displayed that night. As a result, she decides to go on a "quarantine-style staycation" for herself. Billy and Tommy approach her in bed, complaining about how their game controllers constantly shifts between a Wii, GameCube, and Atari, before turning into Uno cards. As Wanda prepares breakfast for herself, the milk carton begins to cycle through different time periods. When Billy and Tommy ask their mother what "Pietro" meant mentioning Vision's death, she disowns him as not their relative. Agnes arrives to the home, and Wanda convinces the twins to go along with their neighbor.
Waking up in a field after being re-absorbed into the Hex by Wanda, Vision finds himself in the middle of a traveling circus. He immediately recognizes Darcy Lewis from his attempted escape from the anomaly, who now "plays" an escape artist. Vision is dumbfounded when Darcy doesn't recognize him, and with the help of a mime distraction, proceeds to awaken her true personality. When an entertainer for the circus calls Darcy up for her routine, the two hijack a nearby vehicle and escape.
Eight miles outside of Westview, Director Tyler Hayward assembles a S.W.O.R.D. retreat with his remaining units. Elsewhere, Monica Rambeau and Jimmy Woo retrieve the email Darcy sent them about "Cataract", learning that Hayward was unsuccessfully trying to bring Vision back online. They meet up with their contact, Major Aly Goodner, who had delivered S.W.O.R.D.'s most heavily-armored Space Rover, theorized to be able to safely penetrate through the barrier encapsulating Westview.
All by herself, Wanda begins to notice objects and furniture in her house alternating between differing time periods, confessing that she has no idea how to fix her predicament. At Agnes' house, Billy points out how unusually quiet Agnes is on the inside. When Tommy asks if their mother back home is alright, Agnes attempts to comfort the twins.
Boarding the rover, Monica prepares to re-enter Westview. As the vehicle collides with the barrier, Monica and Goodner discover that the barrier's density is matching the vehicle, leaving it unable to penetrate. Monica is prompted to escape once the reality overwrite begins to affect the rover, turning it into a truck. Taking one more look at Jimmy, Monica assures him that she is able to breach the barrier herself, using her body to push herself through. Confronting the agonizing resistance, along with voices from her past, she eventually emerges back into Westview with heightened vision, the radiation having drastically altered her DNA.
Darcy explains Vision's past life to him, from his days as Tony Stark's AI assistant J.A.R.V.I.S., to his birth as Ultron's creation, ending with his death at the hands of Thanos. Vision begins to ponder the reason for why he exists now but Darcy, having observed the WandaVision program for the past week, assures the synthezoid that he and Wanda belong together. As Vision prepares to return home, they come across an intersection obstructed by a traffic light repair crew. In a confessional, Vision suggests that the sudden appearance of the crew was Wanda's way of preventing him from returning. As the traffic crew began to clear up, Darcy and Vision are obstructed again-- this time, by a caravan of children. His patience expiring, Vision phases through the car and flies down the road.
Meanwhile, Monica barges into the Vision Residence unannounced, attempting to warn Wanda about Hayward's agenda. At the mention of Hayward's name, Wanda angrily pushes Monica out of the house, their confrontation spilling into the street, garnering the attention of all of Wanda's neighbors. Wanda accuses her of lying about the armed drones and "Pietro". Monica informs Wanda that Hayward will destroy Westview just for the sole purpose of eliminating her, and unsuccessfully attempts to get her to let go of her past, referencing how she lost her mother Maria. Agnes intervenes and carries Wanda away to her house, claiming Monica had overstayed her welcome.
Wanda notices the odd nature of Agnes' home, with a kids' television program still running with unfinished sandwiches at the table, Agnes' pet bunny munching on paper bedding, and the presence of a bug on a curtain. When she inquires Agnes about the twin's whereabouts, Wanda is referred to the basement, where she discovers a gothic lair with dark vines that glow faint purple. As she is exploring the lair for her children, "Agnes" walks in and reveals to Wanda her true identity-- as the witch Agatha Harkness. Agatha uses her magic to enthrall Wanda and produce to her visions in the form of a theme song, showcasing her meddling throughout their time in Westview: her manipulation of the Talent Show, enthralling "Herb" before their conversation to Vision about "Geraldine", sending "Pietro" to Wanda's house, her encounter with Vision on Halloween night, and how she also killed Sparky.
An advertisement during the WandaVision program advertises Nexus antidepressants. In a mid-credits scene, Monica snoops around the outside of Agatha's home and finds an entrance into the basement lair, only to be interrupted by "Pietro".

- The episode pays homage to American mockumentary sitcoms of the late 2000s and early 2010s, most notably Modern Family and The Office.
- The intro for Agatha Harkness at the end of the episode pays homage to the intro of the 1960s sitcom The Munsters.
- The title of this episode is a reference to a term in media when a character turns towards where the fourth wall of a set should be in order to talk to the audience.
- This is the first WandaVision episode to have a mid-credits scene.
- Text on the door of one of the circus vehicles reveals that, inside the Hex, S.W.O.R.D. now stands for "Spectacular World of Rapturous Diversions."
- While Stan Lee passed away in 2018, WandaVision had a subtle reference to Lee in the opening credits of Wanda's sitcom of the week. The credits were just shots of various items, including a license plate with the numbers "122822", which can be broken down to "12/28/22," or December 28, 1922. Those numbers reference back to Stan Lee's birthday.
- This is the last episode to feature an era-appropriate intro and commercial.
- There was an idea for Doctor Strange to appear in this episode, replacing Ithamar Enriquez's Commercial Man for a split second as part of the plot point that the commercials were Strange's attempt to communicate with Wanda.
