WandaVision Showrunner Comments on Accuracy of Fan Theories

To those who are frantically conjuring up their own theorie about WandaVision, there is a good chance that Jac Schaeffer, and the other series creatives, could see it. In addition to being appreciative of the support for WandaVision thus far, it appears that Schaeffer is keeping close tabs on how fans expect the show to play out.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, WandaVision showrunner Jac Schaeffer talked about fan feedback and the many theories online centered on the Disney+ show.
The WandaVision creator was asked how much she paid attention to fan reactions, and “confusion,” after the show’s release, to which she responded by saying that it has been “so fun” to see fans engage with the series:

“It’s been so fun, mostly just because it’s all — everything is just indicative of fan engagement and that’s all you really want, ever, is for people to care and be interested.

Schaeffer also commented on how “amazing” the fan theories have been, even teasing that many of the ideas created by fans are “accurate:”

The theorizing is amazing. The fans are so smart and so dedicated and they come up with such, y’know, amazing notions. A lot of it is accurate, a lot of it is not, there’s a lot that’s very amusing…there are a few things here and there that I’m like ‘Oh, I didn’t mean that but that’s really smart.’ I’m just gonna go ahead and be like ‘I meant that.’ And with the writers…we do a lot of sending of the memes and the tweets to each other for our own internal enjoyment and that’s been a lot of fun.

While the theories likely had no impact on prodution, it is interesting to hear that Schaeffer has seen instances of fans already cracking the code of the show. The question is, which theories are correct?
