Episode 9 of WandaVision was packed with plenty of bombshells, the biggest being the theory-debunking reveal that Pietro is actually Ralph Bohner.
WandaVision has been packed with puzzling mysteries and jaw-dropping reveals from its very first episode, the biggest of which being the arrival of Evan Peters as Pietro Maximoff in episode 5.
However, in episode 9, that storyline took an even bigger twist as Evan Peters’ character was actually revealed to be a man named Ralph Bohner.
But just who is Ralph Bohner and why does this reveal debunk one of the biggest theories surrounding WandaVision?
WandaVision on Disney+
WandaVision premiered on Disney+ on January 15th, 2021.
Thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, it is the first release in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Spider-Man: Far From Home in July 2019.
The series centres on Wanda Maximoff and Vision, placing the two Avengers characters in a period sitcom setting, with each new episode taking place in a new decade.
However, while Wanda and Vision’s lives seem perfectly happy to begin with, not everything is as it seems.
Ralph Bohner in WandaVision episode 9
In episode 9, it’s revealed that the character we thought was a recast Pietro Maximoff was actually just another Westview resident who had been put under a spell.
In the case of Pietro, his real identity is revealed to be Ralph Bohner after Monica Rambeau frees him from the enchantment.
Ralph – who is not a character from the Marvel comics – has been mentioned throughout WandaVision by Agnes/Agatha as she claimed that he was her husband but in reality, Ralph was simply a Westview resident who was being controlled by Agatha.
X-Men multiverse theory debunked
When Pietro, played by Evan Peters, arrived in WandaVision episode 5, it sent Marvel fans crazy.
Evan Peters is famed for playing the character Quicksilver in the recent X-Men films and fans hoped his reveal in WandaVision was a sign that the X-Men could be on their way to the MCU.
Theories immediately started being formed about how the two universes could collide, especially with Doctor Strange 2 being titled The Multiverse of Madness.
However, in the case of Ralph Bohner, he appears to be little more than a Westview resident who was placed under Agatha’s control, that is unless there’s another twist to this tale we’ve yet to uncover.
WandaVision concluded on Disney+ on March 5th, 2021 after nine episodes.
