It’s Wednesday and as promised, the third episode of Loki is here to collectively blow our minds. To give you a little context, the series follows Loki, the other one, after the events of Avengers: Endgame where the God of Mischief is captured by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) for disrupting the Sacred Timeline that is overseen by the Time Keepers. Exhausting, right? Wrong! It is actually by all means more interesting than any other Phase 4 plot thanks to a lot of things including multiverses, time travel and a whole new Loki variant.

The TVA is a strange place where even Infinity Stones are worthless and are used as paperweights. Tom Hiddleston’s Loki, even with crimes on his record, is rescued by Owen Wilson’s Mobius who wants its help to catch the other Loki who has been wreaking havoc and killing minutemen. The last two episodes even introduced us to the hooded mysterious characters and interestingly, it wasn’t Hiddleston’s face. It was Sophia Di Martino’s, proving that there is a female Loki in the picture, as a nod to Loki’s gender fluidity in the comics. Albeit, we didn’t have a name!

Recently, director Kate Heron had said that this week’s episode will dig into the backstory of our apparent Lady Loki. And while the installment doesn’t confirm if she is, in fact, Lady Loki or not at least we have a name. And it is–no point for guessing–Sylvie. There is of course a wild theory that she is the Enchantress, Sylvie Lushton from the comics, but that’s another article (see below).

Now, in the third episode the story progresses into the future and another apocalyptic event. Beware because SPOILERS!

In the first scene itself we see Di Martino trying to strike a conversation with a friend, sipping margaritas. Yeah, it’s all a mind game where the woman in the Loki costume and headgear is trying to manipulate the minute(wo)man, Hunter C-20 she abducted last time. What does she want to know? How many Time Keepers are there? Their location? Etcetera. It is obvious that she is on a crusade against the mysterious Time Keepers but the reason is still in wraps. Well, she bombarded the entire Timeline and says that it’s been in motion for years, so I’m sure she has her reasons. In fact, toward the end of it, their discoveries might even plant a doubt TVA’s intention in your mind.

Sorry, by they I mean Loki and the supposed ‘superior Loki’; that’s Hiddleston joins her after they have a deadly face-off at the TVA after they escape the dilapidated mall from episode 2. They are also interrupted by Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayer but thanks to Loki they slip into another realm. But only to be faced with the end of the world. And therein starts another crusade, against another apocalyptic event on the planet Lamentis-1 that is on its way of complete annihilation. No, they don’t try to save it, they are not your regular Marvel superheroes. Instead, they try to escape the planet but not before they can charge the TempPad, a device that makes travel along the timeline possible. So, will they be able to escape? Maybe but it is obviously not shown in the episodes which, with its shortest durations, ends even before you can realize.

While that was all that the characters did, it is their character arcs that did most of the talking. Both Loki and Sylvie bond and learn to trust each other by sharing their stories while they try to not get killed. There is a segment where they board a train and talk about their past, their childhood in particular and it’s a stark contrast from the rest of the stylised and sarcastic exchange. It is also where Loki talks about his mother Frigga, the Queen of Asgard, who taught him magic. You can truly feel the chink in his armour when he talks about her, filled with the pain of her death that he recently witnessed at the TVA. This also makes Sylvie open up but unlike Loki, she has only herself to thank for her powers. That and she knew, she was adopted.

But the narrative comes into form when Loki asks Sylvie about her ‘enchantment’ and she reveals her process. Of how she has to make physical contact with the person she is trying to control and why some cases are more difficult than others, just like Hunter C-20’s whose memories she altered by taking her back in years on earth. And that strikes a chord with Loki who is surprised to know that the Hunter C-20 is just another variant like them. Wait a sec, that means even Mobius is a variant who doesn’t remember any of it? If that doesn’t change things, I don’t know what will. It doesn’t end but at a failed attempt of them trying to escape the doomed planet. Another cliffhanger, if you may!

Loki episode 3 is now streaming on Disney+ Hotstar with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.
