How Did It End?

Wanda has a full-on breakdown. America opens a multi-verse portal that allows Wanda to see her children and have to face another version of herself in the multi-verse. In pursuit of defeating the mother whose life she is trying to take, Wanda scares her kids, and they become afraid of her. With seeing them in fear, and then going to the mother they know, Wanda is reminded she can’t just take over the life of someone who looks like her. This realization ultimately breaks Wanda. It leads her to not only destroy the Darkhold across all universes but seemingly either kill herself or create a kind of tomb that will leave her isolated and unable to be reached.

With that, America is now safe and training under Wong and Dr. Strange? Well, after using the Darkhold in an attempt to fight Wanda, there are some side effects. One of the main ones we see is having a third eye, but with the appearance of Clea in a mid-credits scene, maybe the enhancements to Dr. Strange’s powers might come of use.

Is There Sequel/ Prequel Potential?

Of course! From it being established Professor X exists within the multi-verse, as well as Reed Richards and Clea coming for Dr. Strange, there is a lot setup for not only a third doctor strange movie but other films in the MCU.
