Loki Episode 3 recap: A toast to the end of the world

In the latest episode of Loki, the two Loki variants crew up to save themselves from an apocalyptic event.

Chaos continues to reign supreme on Marvel’s Loki. In Episode 2, we saw Loki escaping TVA’s custody with Woman Loki (although she wouldn’t like to be called that). Pandemonium begins as many different timelines start to branch out from the sacred timeline. In Episode 3, the 2 Loki variants team up in the face of one other looming apocalypse, and along the way, they learn one thing new about each other. A little champagne does the trick.

Here’s what happens in Episode 3:

The episode begins with some peppy music, and we see Woman Loki unwinding with Hunter over some frozen margaritas. It seems like a normal woman’s night out as they’re discussing mind freezes. Woman Loki says, “So we’ve been greatest mates for a long time, right? So you can inform me everything proper”. Hunter is having a mind freeze, and Woman Loki asks, “So inform me how many people are guarding the timekeepers?” Turns out that that is an illusion and a flashback, as that is how she had interrogated Hunter.

We then see Lady Loki bursting into TVA. While her magic doesn’t work, her martial arts abilities do the trick. Loki has adopted her, and after many tussles, they end up on Lementis-1, a planet that’s on the verge of being destroyed by a falling moon. So the 2 variants decide to crew up, and Woman Loki would love the God of Mischief to know that she doesn’t want to be called Loki. She’s Sylvie, and she’s miffed that the template has run out of cost.

Throughout the course of the dialog, Loki brings up his mom, Frigga. It’s an emotional moment as he recollects his mom being “good, and purely decent”. Woman Loki mocks, “Are you sure that she was your mom?” Loki smiles wistfully and admits that he was adopted. “Little bit of a spoiler for you,” he says. Woman Loki answers, “No, I knew.” She barely remembers her mother and says it’s “just a blip of a dream”.
Loki continues to be nostalgic and remembers the magic his mom used to show him as a baby. “She was the form of individual you’d wish to believe in you,” he says. Woman Loki reveals that she taught herself magic, one thing which impresses Loki past words.

They’ve extra champagne, and so they raise a toast to the end of the world. They have a dialog about love, and Lady Loki says that “love is hate”. Loki asks her whether she has a beau. She asks him whether there are ‘princes or princesses’ ready for Loki. And then there’s the revelation that’s breaking the internet: Loki says a bit of each. They ponder more on love.

Loki unwinds and shakes a leg to some Asguardian songs, as Lady Loki relaxes. Loki leaves his disguise apart, which worries Woman Loki. In fact, this doesn’t end well, and after a lot of fighting, they are thrown out of the train. Lady Loki isn’t pleased and is staring daggers at Loki, actually. The next step is to catch the Space Ark. As apocalyptic doom looms closer, the two have a conversation about belief, and she reveals how she is able to trick TVA using fantasy and phantasm. And then there’s a twist: They discover everyone from TVA is a variant. Wow, that’s not going to finish well.

The episode ends with Loki watching the end of the world….or is it? And still no post-credits scenes.
