This last episode of Loki was my favorite so far! In the void, four Lokis (Classic Loki, Kid Loki, Boastful Loki, and Alligator Loki) rescue Loki from Alioth and give him an explanation of what the wasteland is all about. Back at the TVA Sylvie tried to get Ravonna to help her find out who is running the show, but Ravonna lied to her and stalled for time until the Minutemen showed up. Rather than be arrested again Sylvie decided to delete herself and go to the wasteland. There, Loki had hatched a plan to destroy Alioth but President Loki showed up with his “army”, slowing down the process and showing the downside of being a Loki: the constant betrayals. In the middle of the fight Loki, Kid Loki, Classic Loki, and Alligator Loki escaped in hopes to get to Alioth. As they made their way through the void they ran into Sylvie, who was saved from Alioth by Mobius. Sylvie had her own plan to enchant the guard dog and Loki agreed to do this plan. Classic Loki sacrificed himself so Sylvie and Loki could get to the citadel.
During the period of time Loki was with the other Lokis, he was able to see the pros and cons of being a Loki. Classic Loki’s story hit the hardest as he explained how he came to understand while drifting in space after escaping Thanos, that pain followed him wherever he went, something Prime Loki wouldn’t be able to admit yet. Classic Loki also played a big part in helping Loki see how strong he actually is. When he created Asgard to distract Alioth, I remembered that Asgard was said to be the source of power for Hela and Thor in Ragnarok and after seeing Asgard again, Loki and Sylvie were able to enchant the guard dog. It was great to see Lokis working together, even though Classic Loki said they were just the God of Outcasts.
When they get to the castle I think they will find that one version or another of Kang is behind the TVA. Sylvie’s whole plan is to kill the man behind the curtain, but is it Loki’s? I don’t want Loki to betray Sylvie, but knowing Loki, who betrayed his own family, it’s hard to believe he won’t. However, if the plan goes smoothly and the man in the castle dies at the hand of Sylvie, there will be no one to keep the Sacred Timeline safe, turning the MCU into a Multiverse of Madness.
The finale of Season 1 of Loki streams tomorrow morning on Disney Plus!
