We are already halfway through and the Loki series has not yet revealed all its secrets. This new episode was full of easter eggs and clues about the plot that should not be missed. We take stock.
Already three weeks that Loki has delighted enthusiasts of time travel and mischievous gods with his ambitious plot and which we must admit does not feel too warm for the moment. This new episode is in the same line and brings its share of revelations on the plot and the universe. We take stock.
Lady Loki, is not Lady Loki
The MCU does not hesitate to take some liberties with its founding writings and this new episode is no exception. It serves to introduce us in more detail to the main antagonist, which we had associated with Lady Loki. But make no mistake, despite his horns and oddly similar look to Thor’s brother, this isn’t Loki’s female alter ego (well not quite). In this new episode, we learn that the character introduced into the universe is none other than that of a certain Sylvie.
So if her name doesn’t ring a bell, it’s normal since she is much more famous among comic book fans under the name of Enchantress. In the comics, she first appeared in 2009 with Dark Reign : Young Avengers. Her character is a completely unremarkable human who lived in a small town in Oklahoma until the Asgardians settled there. Loki will then offer her powers just for the sake of changing the life of a human. She will then become the Enchantress and use her powers in the service of evil, even if she will try to join the Avengers.
In the series, the subject seems a little more nuanced even if the motivations of the character are still kept secret. We just know that like Loki she wishes to reach the place where the Keepers of Time are hiding. Note, however, that she seems to be an alternative version of Loki and to have lived more or less the same ordeals as the character that we know.
Loki is the MCU’s first officially bisexual character
In the first episode, we understood that Loki was “gender fluid” thanks to a VAT file. A finding that is not surprising when you know that it can take any shape or appearance thanks to its powers. But now, the god also becomes the first openly bisexual character of the MCU, evidenced by a replica of this third chapter. “A bit of both”, That is clear. In the comics, his sexuality is particularly mentioned in Loki : Agents of Asgard. It remains to be seen how this new information will advance the plot.
VAT lies to its employees
Is Miss Minute in the pay of the real villains? As one could imagine, Lady Loki (Sylvie) is undoubtedly not the announced antagonist. Despite its air of temporal ANPE, the VAT may not be so well intentioned. In his adventures, Loki discovers that the Guardians are hiding a heavy secret from his various employees, they were not created to bring about temporal peace.
Indeed, by diving into the mind of one of the agents of the TVA, Sylvie discovered that she had lived another life on Earth. It would therefore be a Variant whose memory has been erased. They appear to have been enslaved to protect the sacred timeline. Thus, one can imagine that Mobius’ passion for jet-skis is reminiscent of a life spent crisscrossing the Californian coast aboard a jet ski.
At Asgaard, we break glasses
This new episode, which is full of references to pop culture like the one made in Kill Bill Volume 2, did not fail to give a little nod to the saga from which it is inspired. On board the train, Loki orders another drink, smashing it to the ground and screaming “another”. This scene is obviously a reference to a sequence from the first installment, when Thor asks for another coffee by throwing the mug across the room.
