Spoilers for Episode 6 “Candy Zombie” Abbott Elementary Spoilers ahead, as well Avengers: Infinity War.
Its last episode 2022 TV Schedule Hit comedy Abbott Elementary We are shown how hard the teachers work for Halloween, especially Mrs. Melissa Schementi (Lisa Ann Walter). She was dressed as Wanda Maximoff, a la her comic book outfit Wandavision, and it was a spot-on replica of the costume from the Marvel show. While that’s the big obvious MCU shoutout from the episode, there was another subtle yet humorous reference Avengers: Infinity War Towards the end of the Halloween-themed episode.
To get to the point of the episode I’m referring to, allow me to give you some background. The porter Mr. Johnson doesn’t actually have any clothes, but he has a yellow dot on his forehead. Jacob points out at the beginning that he is the Vision. Then one of the kids is seen dressed as Thanos, which means we now have a Wanda, Vision, and Thanos. The episode follows the teachers as they try to catch Baby Thanos who has stolen all the Halloween candy. At the end of the episode the kid is caught and when he leaves the gym, he removes Mr. Johnson’s dot from his forehead and Melissa gasps, much like Wanda. Avengers: Infinity War. An astute fan pointed this out TwitterPosting:

There are a number of fun subtle nods to the characters the teachers dress up throughout the episode, however, this little Avenger Callback is my favorite. It’s a super meaningful moment in the Marvel universe and it’s a A difficult scene for Elizabeth Olson to film Because of how heavy it was. It was a big turning point for Wonder’s character when Thanos removed the vision stone from her head, and it influenced her in all the rest of the Marvel projects she’s appeared in, and I imagine it will continue. Marvel’s upcoming projects.
On top of this moment, the little guy playing Thanos absolutely kills it. The bit of fear I felt when he removed the dot from Mr. Johnson’s forehead was hysterical. These kids are so talented and it’s fun to watch them shine on the show.
The episode really pulled out all the stops when it came to other costumes as well. Jacob was wage theft, Janine was 76’s basketball star James Harden, Barbara was a spelling bee (it was a bee costume with the letters A, B and C), Ava was the superhero Storm, and Gregory was Captain Sully.
