* TheUnReveal:
** Jimmy Woo was introduced to the series looking for a [[WitnessProtection federal witness]] that had been placed in Westview. The witness isn't mentioned once the Hex is down as Jimmy is dealing with Hayward, leaving the identity of this person a mystery.
** After mentioning an "aerospace engineer" in multiple episodes whose name was very carefully never given, setting up all manner of fan theories about a cameo by various canon characters showing up, we never do find out the engineer's identity.

* WhatTheHellHero: The residents of Westview give Wanda a version of this by ''begging'' her to let them go and telling her that she has been causing them pain this whole time. Despite being the villain, Agatha sums it up rather nicely, which sinks in to Wanda:

* WizardDuel: "Witch," but this is essentially the battle between Agatha and Wanda. There is lots of flying, {{Energy Bolt}}s are tossed around, and Agatha really should have paid attention to the RunicMagic on the supernatural boundary's interior surface.

* VillainBall: Hayward drops one bigtime by getting out of his car to shoot Billy and Tommy. There was no tactical reason for him to do this, and his hasty retreat gave Darcy an opening to pin him with a truck. One can only assume that he was irrational from Wanda's kids pulling the same trick on him that she did earlier.

* AmbiguousSituation:
** Tommy and Billy's existence is seemingly tied to the Hex, and they are assumed to have vanished along with Vision when Wanda removes it... but in the post-credits scene, Wanda hears their voices crying out to her while studying the Darkhold, implying that their situation might be a bit more complicated.
*** It could also be the Darkhold attempting to corrupt her by preying on her desires to have a family by placing her sons terrified voices in her mind.

Added DiffLines:

* AdultFear: It's revealed that parents are very aware that Wanda keeps their children locked in some sort of stasis in their rooms when not needed for crowd scenes. Sarah Proctor, whom Wanda "cast" as Dottie, once free of Wanda's thrall starts begging for her daughter to join the show in any sort of role if only so she can have the chance to hug her again.

It sounds like two scholars debating, so it is useful to make sure they're on the same page before moving on to the debate itself.



* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Wanda's reaction when the people of Westview make it clear how it's felt being her puppets all the time and her "protection" has been driving them insane. She holds it back at first, denying having hurt them... until she realizes she is strangling them and outright called out on torturing them by Agatha.

* RunicMagic: Wanda creates a space where only she can use magic by etching several runes into the Hex, which Agatha accidentally taught her.
* SadisticChoice: Wanda is forced to choose between keeping her family and breaking the Hex to free the people of Westview. Initially she can't let go of Vision and the boys, but eventually realizes she has to.

* StupidSacrifice: Subverted. Monica takes several bullets from Hayward to protect Tommy and Billy, even though Tommy has SuperSpeed and Billy has telekinesis, meaning they could have easily evaded it themselves. Fortunately, she discovers in the process that absorbing bullets is one of her own new powers, and survives.

* WeakButSkilled: In contrast to UnskilledButStrong Wanda, Agatha definitely has an "Age and Treachery" angle going for her. Wanda supposedly had her dead-to-rights by trapping her in a hallucination of her attempted execution, but Agatha flips it around to trap Wanda with little visible effort due to her greater knowledge of magic.

* WorldHealingWave: As the Hex disappears, due to the extreme negative emotion that powered it being no more, everything that was altered to fit the sitcom reality reverts to its original contemporary version. NoOntologicalInertia also occurs, as the damage caused by the final battle (like the torn-up streets) are also repaired as if it was never destroyed in the first place.

Hayward is stopped and arrested for his crimes, Monica is on her way to becoming a superhero, and Agatha is turned into Agnes by Wanda so that she can never hurt anyone ever again.

* DeathGlare: After Wanda walks back into the main area of Westview after dispersing the Hex, ''every single citizen'' can be seen coldly staring at her as she walks by. Monica notes that the town doesn't remember what she did to save them, and justifiably aren't in the forgiving mood.

* HeroWithBadPublicity: Wanda and Monica acknowledge that this trend is probably going to continue for Wanda, at least in Westview, as the residents there will likely never forgive her for what she put them through or understand her reasoning and what she sacrificed for them.
