Loki: Review

Loki: Review

Picking up from a scene in Avengers: Endgame, Loki follows the consequences of the God of Mischief’s mistake of picking up the tesseract but brings him on the adventure to learn what it means to be Loki.

To be honest, I watched the show because I am a fan of the character Loki. But that does not make me biased to the content. Right off bat, I will admit there were a few plot holes in my opinion.

For example, how Loki came to be an alligator is a huge plot hole. Even though the alligator provided comic relief in the penultimate episode, and is my favorite thing about the series, I feel like it could’ve been expanded upon.

Sylvie

Sylvie ended the season as my least favorite character. By now, I’m hoping you Marvel fans are able to handle this fact: in the end, Sylvie betrays Loki and kills He Who Remains. Now, I would’ve been fine with this happening had she not kissed Loki. Loki had a spectacular arc and almost found love, yet she didn’t trust his word and damaged the multiverse.

Sylvie is just as evil as He Who Remains. She’s bent on revenge against the Time Variance Authority (TVA). In the season finale, she finds He Who Remains, who is a lawful evil (at best).

Sure, Sylvie’s backstory was justified, but I kept rooting for her to have a change of heart. Thus, when she kissed Loki and pushed him into a portal, she became my least favorite character.

Ahh. We’ve come to one of my favorite characters. Mobius. Loyal to the TVA, but also rebelling and doing things his own way. If there’s a good/slightly morally-gray character I love, it’s him.

Not a lot is known about him other than the fact that he works for the TVA and is friends with the judge of the TVA. But this is justified because he doesn’t know his backstory, or how he came into the hands of the TVA. As shown with other characters, his memories of his prior life are so deeply hidden.

If there is a character that I can’t determine whether I like or not, it has to be her. She’s unpredictable. I can never tell if she’s good or bad. But I do like that in the end, she abandons the TVA for freedom.

Only one person gets free will. The one in charge.

Loki, “For All Time, Always”

Well, this has taken me months to concoct. I hope you enjoyed this review.
