Thoughts on Loki Episode 2. In no particular order.
-Apparently some people and other language dubs are saying that Lady Loki is really Sylvie Lushton. Guess we’ll find out. Pretty disturbing if Loki can’t tell. Why would Sylvie want to destroy the TVA? Is she working for/with another Loki who doesn’t want to get his hands dirty? And how did she manage to fool everyone into thinking she’s a Loki? She also said it’s not about him at all-so if it is Sylvie-maybe he recognized her when she revealed herself?
-Loki brawl? Maybe?
-Pompeii! Loki speaking Latin! “Be free my horned friends (horned individuals stick together)!” 😁 That’s one of the things I love about him-that fun chaos quality. You can tell Tom’s having a ball.
-The whole apocalypse lapse in the TVA’s security is a major thing they easily missed. It didn’t take much for Loki to find it.
-The trick of enchanting/possessing people-how come our Loki has never done that before?? Cause the space lizards didn’t want him too? Or because she’s not really Lady Loki?
-How come no one but Renslayer has seen the time keepers? Are they real? Who is her other agent? Gugu Mbatha-Raw said there’s a major betrayal coming from Judge Renslayer.
-Damn-the possible Lady Loki variant really hates other Lokis. Though she did leave the time door open for him so I’m guessing she wanted him to follow. My guess is that they’re going to the ruins of Asgard. And she just created a shit load of new timelines.
-Loki is experiencing true free will for the first time in his life. If he seems a bit OOC sometimes, that’s a pretty good reason why.
-Quite ironic how they keep holding Loki responsible for everything but Renslayer literally says that he’s been “made evil” because the time keepers willed it so and he can’t change within the timeline unless they want him to. His decisions were made because some sadistic lizards decided to use him as a plot device to create so called heroes.
-Do you understand this peeps? He has NO free will in the original timeline. No one does. Outside the TVA people don’t have free will. It kind of makes the MCU universe seem pretty bland. There doesn’t really seem to be much of a point to decisions people make if it’s all preplanned.
-It’s extremely hypocritical how they keep holding him responsible for decisions he had no free will in making.
-Seems that that’s not the natural state of the universe- because otherwise we wouldn’t get so many variants. The time keepers are trying to force a false constant order on the universe and the universe is constantly fighting back because its natural state is chaos.
-What makes a variant able to somehow develop free will and slide off the predestined timeline?
-Does the original timeline keep running-the branch that Loki created was pruned, so does that mean that there’s another Loki there right now that is experiencing the original timeline? It’s confusing. Also, if the branch was pruned, where did Steve return the scepter to?
-Honestly, the first truly free decision that this Loki ever made was picking up the Tesseract. You can only really hold him responsible for everything he’s done since then.
-Seems Renslayer and Mobius have more freedom and agency than we thought. I think the higher up in the TVA you go, the more free will you have.
-The conversations between Loki and Mobius are fascinating and Tom and Owen do a great job of playing off of each other. Someone get Mobius a jet ski!
-So the time keepers are literally planning the end. Endless order. No wonder several Loki variants keep getting in there and messing it up. Endless order is boring.
-THE TVA IS NOT GOOD. At best, it is amorally neutral. At worst, it’s evil (though there are innocent people in it). How anyone can miss that when it’s so obvious is beyond me. See the kind of fascist dystopian posters they have (below) and the director of the show pretty much admitted they were based on a dystopian bureaucracy. Several people who have survived Soviet communism have mentioned that it reminds them of that time. Makes me think of a facist dystopia too. Basically strict authoritarianism-big brother is always watching. 1984 vibes
-Loki is not the villain. The Time Keepers are.
-So Earth really did itself in with the natural disasters and climate change. Wish I could say I’m surprised.
-Holding Out For A Hero was playing for possible Lady Loki beating up time cops and I am here for it. The implication is that she’s the hero-down with the TVA-burn it down Lokis!
-I’m still angry that any timeline where Loki and his family might’ve had a better life was pruned. Anywhere where people didn’t die for those stupid infinity stones was pruned. Anywhere where the snap didn’t happen was pruned.
-Loki calling the TVA out on literally vaporizing universes and people is great. They’re sick.
-The only cosmic mistake murderer people I see are the TVA. They are in no place to lecture anyone on anything.
-Casey! Poor Casey! Stop tormenting him Loki! You’re giving him anxiety. Though you were trying to be nice. 😁I think workers like Casey have some free will but they’re purposely kept ignorant just so they can do what they’re told to do. I want them to be spared.
-Some workers there really do seem to be pre-programmed-like the librarian who doesn’t respond unless you ring the bell! Which is really creepy.
-I hope the Lokis (or Loki and Sylvie?) team up. It’s kinda weird seeing other actors possibly playing Loki.
-Asking her to be your lieutenant Loki? Do you not know yourself at all? She’s either going to want to be equal with you or be in charge!!!
-Loki fooling with Miss Minutes 😁
-The Time Cops really do come off as sadistic assholes. I’m still trying to figure out how much agency they have and how responsible they are for their own actions. I don’t like the character B15 but I like Wunmi Mosaku very much. She did one hell of a good job playing a Loki variant. She got the cocky grin down well.
-I want to see more variants! Especially ones who look like Tom!
-Yeah Mobius Loki is really going to go back with you and the Time Cops running after him with melt sticks after you basically threatened him and told him if this mission doesn’t work out he’s in big trouble.
-Speaking of which-for a while now some Mobius stans have been anoning and harassing people who write about not liking the character on their own blogs. To me he’s a frenemy, although as of this episode he’s trending more toward enemy; though I do think that will change later. Some of y’all act like he’s this big angel who loves and cares for Loki but he literally admitted he’s using him and even said that he’d delete him if things didn’t go right. He’s fascinated by him and he wants him to catch the other Variant. Now it is possible he was just saying all that to get on Renslayer‘s good side but still-until we know more, we can’t really trust him; he’s not some therapist, or guardian angel, or canonical love interest (the head writer said their friendship is going to be like that between the two main characters in the movie “Catch Me If You Can”. Though obviously, feel free to ship). And really-an ice runt? Nice. I think both of his claimed “reasons“ for wanting Loki around are true but the sentimental one isn’t enough if the useful one doesn’t work out.
-Mobius believes in order and the sanctity of the TVA. I like Owen Wilson so I’m still hoping his character will turn against them but it’s going to be a majorly difficult turn. Do I want him to turn out to be a friend? Yeah. Do I think on some level he wants sympathizes with something broken in Loki? Yes. But that is a secondary motive that he will not put above the motive of his loyalty to the TVA. His loyalty is to the time keepers who made Loki who he is. No matter how fascinated he is with this Loki variant, if this Loki doesn’t do what the TVA wants Mobius will follow the TVA rules. His primary motive, at least for now, is using Loki.￼￼ And now Loki has made him look bad. If you really like him, good for you. But stop telling those who don’t or those of us in the middle that we have to feel the same way. And that goes the other way too.
-Loki’s face when he saw that Asgard got destroyed. 🙁
-Is Lady Loki somehow the original Loki from the prime universe? Her basically implying to our Loki that really he’s an offshoot of her makes me wonder. Or could Loki prime’s soul somehow be in Sylvie’s body?
-She doesn’t want to rule the TVA-I think she wants to destroy it so that she can have free will and change her and everyone else’s fate. Also she’s resurrecting the multiverse-because I think that is the original natural state of the universe. I’m all for it.
-We saw at least 5 variations of Loki variants (Loki’s face seeing them was priceless). Seems Loki has a knack for stepping off the timeline. One of them was openly Jotun and another was a Hulk Loki! That’s the second time I’ve seen a Hulk Loki mentioned (AOA Loki mentioned him in the comics too). Can somebody please tell me where in the comics he came from?? I’ve looked but I can’t find any reference to a Hulk Loki in the past comics?
-I’d like to see a fight with Hulk Loki, Banner Loki, and B15.
-Loki is supposed to be a good tactician and I get that there’s supposed to be some humor; but why is it always being made to seem that he’s stupid and his schemes are obvious? Unless he’s doing that on purpose? I know he was just stalling at the Renaissance fair.
-Loki said he wouldn't treat himself like that. Physically, I think he’s right. Loki’s first impulse is usually to talk-not hit.
But that’s the thing Loki- you do treat yourself that way-figuratively. You act like you think you’re superior even to a possible other version of yourself; and you have no idea how to even talk to yourself. Of course he’s also experiencing free will for the first time in his life so things are complicated. But it’s pretty obvious that as much as they try to cover it up with arrogance, there’s a mutual loathing.
I have a hard time understanding how anyone who really thinks critically can think that the TVA is “good” after seeing these:
LOKI S1E2 THOUGHTS
Ok this isn't really thoughts it’s just me shouting plot points in sheer excitement
you will have to forgive my... uhh... excitement... I nerded out after the classical latin usage
I lol'd at the renaissance/medieval fakeout

Loki Episode 2: "The Variant"
Spoilers under the cut
Every time I hear Miss Minutes, I hear Twilight Sparkle impersonating Apple Jack, and that's the most terrifying thing about this show.
Where are we? Ren faire? REN FAIRE!!!
I understand you, pretty lady. They don't, but I do.
Wait, if Casey didn't know what a fish was, what are the chances of the Minutemen knowing what a Ren faire is?
"Holding out for a hero" — hey, I got that reference—
YES PLAY THAT BOP
I love that song I love that sequence. Play it at my funeral.
NO HE'S TALKING TO THE TWILIGHT JACK CLOCK
SWAT THAT FLY BABY
Lesser kind. Oh dear, you have no idea.
Catch me throwing hands with B-15.
Listen to him lecture them about Magic is Science!
Ooo Mobius knows what's up
Loki is the companion, Moby is the Doctor, and we're doomed
He really is Professor Loki
Oh my gosh Loki, stop
No seriously, you're transparent
See Mobius called you out on it. Chill Loki
What happens if we do go past critical in a Nexus Event? 🤔
Mobius and Renslayer sound like the parents who are trying to pin their child's bad traits on the other but it's both their fault
Zoo Loki vs Wild Loki
OH YEAH NOT UNLESS THE TIME KEEPERS DECREE IT CAN LOKI CHANGE
If they want that variant caught, they should freefall out of their high tower and go catch him themselves!
"Eyes on the road" says Lightning McQueen
"I was almost gone" says me every time my mom calls me back
Have you, dear? Your hand is showing.
I knew it was gonna be paperwork.
This isn't a library, rando background character. Let him dramatically not read
Loki, go sit back down and stop trying to get classified information. You're not Tony. You can't hack the system.
Oooo what is it
Don't make me go through this AGAIN
He IS a good actor. Loki. We already knew Tom was.
I feel sorry for that salad monstrosity
We're not going back to Ragnarok.
We don't trust Loki but we can 1.) trust his rage, and 2.) trust his love of being right
Oh gosh, this really is like Doctor Who. We're going to Volcano Day. Hope the TVA don't notice the Doctor and Donna saving that one family
Actually. They wouldn't notice. Because we're in an apocalyptic event.
Loki is so excited about volcanic destruction and that recalls him RELIGHTING SURTR TO BURN DOWN ASGARD
You beautiful pyromaniac, you
I love the goats I want them as pets
Oh my Lord in Heaven
Awe, sleepy Loki sleeps
Jet skis. Gotta love 'em.
I don't know, Loki. I read about you. What's that say about me?
"Three magic lizards" — aka Argonians high on WAY TOO MUCH HIST SAP
Existence is chaos. Chaos magic. Spontaneous creation. It's real because I believe it's real.
Time Lords are writers with their own edit as you go underlings
We know he's clever but WHY is he clever?
We need to pump Loki up with high fructose corn syrup
THE SWALLOW GOES EXTINCT IN 2050?!
Our Monty Python references will mean NOTHING without the swallow!
Saying that, was it the European Swallow, African Swallow, or all swallows?
I love uncovering holes in people's security!
We're going grocery shopping in Sweet Home Alabama. Lit
Please make a distinction of which Loki gets pruned next time. Thanks
Look at these adorable people walking through a hurricane. Only Florida Men do that
I sure hope we can trust you, Loki. This time. At least.
Oh I always love being watched by ominous silhouettes with bombs!
Loki is me. B-15 is my brother.
"Hurricane Sale." Accurate
Body swap and possession. Sus.
This hurricane is so much worse than Pompeii
"Sheeve your smarm"
Well snap. Recharge. Recycle.
This doesn't look good for Loki
I miss Randy, too
Loki, God of Mischief, gets beat up by an Alabama redneck.
ROBO DOG THING TOY
SOSIDNDOFIFJ WE'RE DEAD WE'RE DEAD WE'RE ALIVE BUT WE'RE DEAD
