WandaVision boss Jac Schaeffer was anxious about one key scene from the finale potentially not making the final cut.
WandaVision recently concluded the enthralling debut season on Disney+, following a pretty wild ride, captivating mysteries, and crazy twists, providing a fresh take on the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In a new interview, showrunner Jac Schaeffer disclosed that because of its nature, she was concerned that one of the most moving scenes from the finale would not make it – the last time ever Wanda and Vision embrace, and bid farewell.

Talking to The Daily Princetonian, Schaeffer stated that due to this scene being written too early in the production phase, it may have failed to outlive all cuts and rewrites.
The thing that still moves me and I kind of can’t get over it is [Wanda and Vision’s] goodbye scene. It was written very early. The kernel of it was part of my original pitch. I wasn’t sure if it would survive the development of the series.
The creator added,
But Vision talking about all the things he’s been and the idea of ‘what will he be next?’ that was a really early idea. I really love Paul Bettany as a person, and he loved that piece, too, so it’s very beautiful to me. That scene is totally the heart of the show.
I think the actual moment of it has nothing to do with me and is just this moment in history. We’re coming off a full year of an MCU drought, so everybody has been craving this for so long.
Needless to say, everybody’s been stuck in their homes, and the creator believes the concepts of the piece relate to our actual collective acquaintance. It’s about grief, or “love persevering” as Vision would say.
Schaeffer adds it’s about the loss of your loved one.
It’s just about seeking solace in entertainment. That is 100 percent the moment we’re currently living through. So that is just all serendipity, I think.
