I’m so sorry this article is late. I got frustrated, walked away, and didn’t come back. I trashed everything I wrote for episode five, and decided to start over completely. This time around, I’ll give my brief thoughts on the final two episodes of Loki, and my thoughts on the show as a whole. I hope to keep things short and sweet.
Episode 5 Thoughts and Highlights: Journey into Mystery felt like an episode ripped right out of the pages of a comic, and a short film for the small screen! I loved how everything looked! All those lights and smoke effects for the battle scene were AMAZING!
I loved all the Loki Variants! President Loki and Alligator Loki were my favorites!
We’re one step closer to getting the Young Avengers with the introduction of Jack Veal as Kid Loki, and I can’t wait to see more of him!
Wunmi Mosaku got her time to shine as Hunter B-15.
Richard E Grant as Classic Loki stole the show with his excellent performance and his ridiculous costume! It’s too bad we only got one episode with Classic Loki in it. Maybe he didn’t actually get killed by Alioth? Maybe it was a trick? Hopefully?
The fantastic character development we get for Loki! From not even shaking Mobius’s hand in the beginning to grabbing him for a hug! That’s the kind of growth I love to see!
Episode 6 Thoughts and Highlights: Jonathan Majors as He Who Remains was amazing, and so entertaining to watch. Usually, I’d complain that there was too much exposition; too much telling and not enough showing. Normally, watching three people have a conversation for nearly an entire episode would be boring, but it wasn’t this time. Jonathan’s performance was SO good! I can’t wait to see what he does as Kang the Conqueror!
Overall Series Thoughts: Loki was a good entry into the MCU. Aside from a boring episode three, this show was solid. It also blew the doors open to the Multiverse.
It was great to see Loki get the time in the spotlight and the character development he deserved. And it was great to see Tom Hiddleston getting a show of his own after being the scene stealer in the Thor trilogy.
Owen Wilson was someone I didn’t know I needed in the MCU, but now that he’s involved, I hope we see Mobius again. Hopefully, we’ll see him again in season 2.
Sophia Di Martino was wonderful as Sylvie. I want her to be the next Doctor!
I got everything from this show that I wanted for Loki’s character. I wanted him to have a friend of his own, not necessarily a boyfriend or girlfriend. I also wanted him to learn to love himself, though falling in love with a Variant of himself wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. I enjoyed the show, and my overall rating is 4.5/5 stars. I can’t wait for season two!
Over and out,
