Wanda Maximoff’s journey of grief shows us that grief and sorrow mean the person, the relationship, mattered. Grief and sorrow are not unhealthy – it’s how we deal with them that can lead to healing and peace, or to unhealthy coping mechanisms… like taking over a small town and creating an entire fake reality.
Licensed therapist Jonathan Decker and filmmaker Alan Seawright are joined by guest, licensed therapist Kati Morton, to talk about Wanda’s magically-enhanced maladaptive daydreaming to cope with the loss of Vision. Wanda’s faced a lot of trauma in her life, and isn’t ready to cope with it in a healthy way, but over the course of her story, arrives in a healthier place. Of course, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s brilliant performances make the story all the more heart-wrenching. (Yes, many tears are shed in this episode.)
