Dr Strange 3 is heavily "cinematic universe oriented" because if viewers do not follow Marvel's recent movies and TV series, it will be difficult for them to grasp what happens on the film. The film is set in our main universe – Earth 616; and many other variant universes, most importantly Earth 838, based on the Marvel Comics.

The Earth Prime's Wanda becomes the Dark Scarlet Witch version

The TV series WandaVision basically created another tragedy for Wanda 616 after she lost her loved one, Vision in Avengers: Endgame. Wanda's new tragedy is the feeling of a losing mother, even though her children did not really exist but were created by her magic instead.

Possessing the Darkhold helps Wanda develop telepathic abilities to know what are taking place in other Universes and learns of the existence of the twins Billy and Tommy (names of her two fictional children), although they are children of other Wanda versions, but Wanda 616 is obsessed that they are her own.

Being mad for the sake of finding her children and further corrupted by the Darkhold, Wanda throughout the film emerges as an evil Witch with boundless strength, ready to do anything, any kill to hunt. and deprive the young girl of America Chavez's powers - a character with no variants throughout the universes, who are capable of opening transverse portals linking the multiverse just witch a punch.

Scarlet Witch does truly shocking events and breakes all the rules of the wizard world: ravaging the Kamar-Taj temple despite the fact that the entire world of magic gather here to fend off; becoming the ruler at the Tower of the Elder God Chthon on Mount Wundagore; killing most of the Illuminati of Earth 838 (including Mordo, Captain Carter, King Black Bolt, Captain Maria Rambeau, Dr. Reed Richards, and Professor Charles Xavier)...

Wanda only comes to her senses when she actually confronts Billy and Tommy on Earth 838 and the two scared children call her a witch, while they try to protect their real mother. Wanda 838, after being badly possessed by Wanda 616 for a while, still sympathizes with her version and tells Scarlet that "We will be loved".

Desperate-For-Love Dr Strange Variants in the Multiverse

Throughout the film is the journey of Dr Strange of the prime universe (Earth 616) trying to protect America Chavez from the Scarlet Witch's hunt. This leads to many interstellar travels and he comes to learn about the fate of other Dr Strange variants there.

The common point of the Dr Strange across the universes is that the relationship between Dr Strange and Christine never work to a happy ending, no matter how he loves her. If Strange on Earth 616 accepts his separation from Christine, even attending her remarriage with joy; other Strangers proved to be very submissive.

In order to find the Darkhold Book to sleepwalk back to the main Earth, Dr Strange 616 confronts and has a tough musical fight with a sinister Strange - presumably the version that appeared in the What If ... ? series. In this universe, the desperation-for-love led the dark Strange to use the Darkhold to sleepwalk across the universes, to find out the realities where "Dr Strange and Christine are happy together", even to break the "absolute point" working in this universe causes it to be destroyed forever. But no realities with such happy ending could be found.

Meanwhile on Earth Earth-838, Dr Strange abused the Darkhold and created an incursion of the universes, so the Illuminati decided to kill him after winning the battle with Thanos, although later a monument of Dr Strange was erected there.

In the credits of the movie, Dr Strange in the main universe pops up  a third eye on his forehead - the Eye of Agamotto. Usually, this is the telltale sign of an evil Strange using the Book of Darkhold to sleepwalk. But fortunately the Darkholds across the entire multiverse have been destroyed by Wanda; we hope Dr Strange 616 remains the brightest version of the Supreme Sorcerer  in the galaxy.

And as an inherent limitation of the Cinematic Universes, viewers wonder "Where were all the Avengers, Eternals when not only Earth but the Multiverse was in great danger?".
