Maybe if Loki was a 10 episode show I’d be a little less annoyed with Lamentis. Maybe by the time it ends it won’t have mattered but right now I’m a little disappointed in episode 3.
Not only was it shorter than the first two but the end left me less, “Oh my God! It’s over! I can’t… Why? I can’t process!” Instead I was like, “That’s it? Really? I feel a cheated.”
Don’t get me wrong that they canonized Loki being Bi is a big deal and a step in the right direction for Disney. But this is Disney so I’m going with it only being a step and having little to no impact on the show.
Plus Loki and Sylvie just confused me. I didn’t know whether I was supposed to get brother/sisters vibes or rom com feelings.
The acting was great and the banter fun for a while but it went on too long. I felt like what we did learn about Sylvie only gives me more questions and Loki just wasn’t asking too many or the right ones in my opinion. Nice that he was having fun. And I always love him talking about Frigga but seriously this is supposed to be Loki a couple of days after trying to take over Midgard, being soundly beaten and now off his guard and in the TVA.
So yeah the drunk Loki felt a bit out of character.
I’ve seen some people say well she did enchant him or he enchanted her while she slept or he’s playing her. Which okay fine but frankly if that was the case that would have been the revelation to end the episode on instead of a cliffhanger that we know will be resolved because there is still three episodes left.
Also that kind of well it’s going to be this does give me Game of Thrones flashbacks where everything was, “It will all make sense in the end! They know what they’re doing!”
Maybe I’m just salty because I missed Mobius. Never thought I’d say that about an Owen Wilson character. But here we are.
We did get confirmation that the TVA agents are variants just like Loki and Sylvie. Nice delivery from Tom Hiddleston who seemed truly upset that they didn’t know that. I just wonder if that and the bi-canonization couldn’t come in a meatier episode.
But on the plus side the planet was a nice soothing purple. My favorite color 🙂
It looks like next week we’re getting some Sylvie flashbacks per the previews. And I have some questions:
Is she a variant or a multi-verse because it seemed like her timeline diverged very early? She barely remembers her mother and always knew she was adopted. Very different from Loki.
Interesting that she knows so much about the TVA but not that her powers wouldn’t work inside…
Where does she come from? What does she want? How did she teach herself magic and how to evade the TVA but drunk Loki brings her down?
This and other questions will hopefully be answered!
Hopefully along with a Mobius reunion? And hints of what Ravonna might know… Just three episodes left!

I’m loving this show, and 6 episodes are not enough to satisfy my Loki love. But it will have to do, lol. I agree about the relationship with Loki and Sylvie–I keep shipping them, kind of, but then I’m like, wait, she’s him, that would be weird. I kind of wish she wasn’t a “Loki” and was just another variant with an agenda. Oh well, it’s interesting and keeps me guessing.
But is she a Loki? I mean even if that’s technically true there paths seem like they diverged so much and so early does it still count?
Good questions. She claims she’s not a “Loki” anymore. They’re two separate entities. So maybe not so weird? Lol. This is show is great for making your mind go down some interesting rabbit holes.
Don’t get me wrong it still had some weird vibes. I don’t know if you watch The Boys but when he was singing to her I couldn’t help but think dude even Homelander didn’t go there 🙂
I haven’t watched The Boys, but yeah, that serenade would have made me weak in the knees, lol.
I still don’t get it why she doesn’t call herself Loki
Honestly it’s probably just ease so there’s not two Loki’s.
I’ll be the first to admit I’m really struggling to get into the series. Everyone is giving Loki such glowing reviews that I just don’t fully understand. I’m at least glad to know most people were underwhelmed by episode 3. I really hope things start to pick up.
I was loving it 🙂
I think this show especially is really going to depend on the ending. If they can bring it all together but I got to say wasting time on episode 3 I’m a little less hopeful!
These are all my thoughts exactly; I think that because of the way that “WandaVision” kind of brought everything together at the end, I was kind of hoping that a lot of the things I had an issue with would be resolved by the end of “Loki” as well, but I’m not sure (still hopeful though!). Also, I just can’t reconcile the fact that he seemed so significantly out of character.
Right? I have a hard time putting out of mind this is the Loki who killed 80 people (as Nat said) and lead the invasion of New York which likely would have killed thousands or more a few days ago.
