Loki was quite a ride wasn’t it? It transitioned from a hilarious buddy-detective plot to an epic love story drama that ended with one of the best and biggest cliffhangers in the MCU so far.
Honestly, I’m still reeling a bit after that finale but, of course, my mind is always looking to the future. A future that seems to have been brilliantly set up to be something truly special next season. But to understand where these characters’ stories can go we have to look at what the show and the finale revealed to us about Loki and Sylvie.
(This will be a longread.)
To understand Loki’s incredible six-episode transformation in the series we have to think about his roles in Thor and The Avengers.
In Thor, we get to see Loki go through an emotional rollercoaster of a storyline. He starts off as the jealous brother who tries to keep Thor from being king by secretly inviting the Frost Giants into Asgard to crash the party. His plan veers out-of-control when Thor decides to take revenge on the Frost Giants, resulting in his banishment. Meanwhile, Loki on Jotunheim discovers when touched by a Frost Giant that his skin turns blue like them. It suddenly clicks why he’s always been treated so differently than Thor, why he was never groomed for the throne even though he was the smartest of the two brothers.
He learns that he’s adopted and it shatters Loki, driving him on a villainous path that he hopes will conclude with him being King of Asgard. His plan fails but he turns to Thanos, becoming his pawn and in return he would become King of Midgard a.k.a Earth.

Well I’ve seen it, the glorious finale, and wow was it enthralling!
When I first noticed that the episode would only be 47 minutes long I was, truthfully, a little bummed. But then the finale began and I instantly knew we were in for a treat. From that opening intro to the last second, Loki‘s finale literally never disappoints.
The villain reveal is legitimately shocking in all of the best ways. Loki and Sylvie… *scream* And yes, the show leaves on a cliffhanger so massive I’m literally sitting here writing this at 5am in the morning wide-eyed, elated, and just downright SHOCKED!
I, of course, will delve into the episode’s spoilers tomorrow but for now…Loki is the series that I thought it would be, it makes WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier look like Ant-Man compared to Captain America: Civil War, and finally, we got a finale that was, in fact, the best episode of the series.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
I can’t believe it but yes, the time has arrived. Tomorrow is the finale of Loki and for the first time with these Marvel Disney+ series, I have no idea how it’s going to end.
The only thing I can latch onto is the idea that this series will open up the possibilities of the Multiverse. But how? How will that happen? And who the heck is at the top of the Haunted Mansion? I’m really hoping it’s something goofy like a giant CGI Miss Minutes but honestly, it may be something far more sinister. And that’s what worries me.
You know what else worries me? The prospect of Sylvie dying. Sylvie has become a character that I really like but we don’t know if this will be her last rodeo or not. Loki has always had such a tragic story that it seems almost fitting that the first person he genuinely loves would be taken from him in the end, because that’s just his bad luck. I don’t want this to happen, I need tomorrow’s episode to conclude on a high note with Loki and Sylvie being the rightful King and Queen that they are, but I just don’t know what to expect and I’m honestly a little terrified.
How are you feeling about tomorrow’s episode? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
It’s happening. We are just one day away from the conclusion to Season 2 of The Mandalorian and my feelings, as of right now, are mixed. Very, very mixed.
I’m super excited but the level of anxiety and bittersweetness I’m also experiencing is astronomical. One side is me is bursting at the seams with the exhilaration of whatever tomorrow’s episode may bring but then to know that we won’t be getting Season 3 until Christmas Day 2021! is so saddening.
We will have to wait a little over a year until the next piece of the story and even though I will gladly wait a year for content whose quality is top-notch it’s still like a stab in the heart.
And will we see the Jedi? And if we do, who is it going to be? Oh my gosh! I can’t handle the suspense!
I can’t wait to see what happens next.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
It took me two years to finally understand Star Wars: Resistance. Literally, I didn’t get what the series was fully about until Sunday evening when I watched the finale. And finally, it clicked.
This wasn’t a show designed to have a tragic ending or a bittersweet conclusion like Star Wars: Rebels. This was a story about a family of rebels who came together and survived a small but important conflict with the First Order in a small section of the galaxy. There were adventures, some perilous and some humorous. There were some interesting character developments, new allies, frenemies, and villains that were met along the way, and by the series’ conclusion, we get a sense of joy very reminiscent of the joyous ending delivered in A New Hope.
The fight, of course, isn’t over but we understand that these characters, this family brought together on the Colossus will always be there for one another. And that is a beautiful story that I’m actually delighted was told.
No, both seasons weren’t perfect, but that finale was. I’m giving it 100 out 100 and 5 out 5 stars. It was a great ending to a fun story.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force be with you.
It’s very difficult to make a good television show, specifically a memorable cartoon. The best cartoon I had ever watched prior to Star Wars: Rebels was Avatar: The Last Airbender. The Last Airbender is storytelling perfection, slowly but surely delivering an impactful story that brings about one of the most epic final seasons (and series finales) of any television series.
The Clone Wars was the second-best cartoon I had ever watched but now, after seeing Star Wars: Rebels, The Clone Wars has clearly no contest.
Star Wars: Rebels had one of the best finales I’ve ever seen to anything, television show or movie. It delivered a gripping final few episodes that have left me still reeling by its incredible storytelling. And yeah, I cried like a baby and I’m not ashamed to admit it either.
