Loki Season 1 Episode 2 Review
Loki Season 1 Episode 2 Review

As a huge fan of the Thor movies, I was excited to see Loki’s backstory. I’ve always been fascinated by Loki. He’s such a complex character.

What was the episode about?

After a shocking opening scene, the story jumps back to the far past. Odin is in the process of banishing Loki and his mother to the underworld. However, Thor stops him and pleads for them to be allowed to stay.

Odin allows them to remain on Earth, but under the condition that they never show their faces.

It’s a really interesting story and it was nice to see Loki’s backstory. I’m not sure if I liked the episode or not.

Loki Season 1 Episode 2 Review

The first season of Netflix/Marvel's newest tv series, “Marvel’s The Defenders” is proving to be a great success for Marvel as they keep smashing their superheroes together into one package. Despite the hit power by the Defenders, the number of fans of each character is still very different. 

The main audience is the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” fans that are out there and expecting something big. This is where Marvel has some big shoes to fill since the Loki TV series came out so far before the Marvel TV show. 

The initial show has failed to meet the expectation of its own fans. The Characters are not Very Smart The only things I can praise the Loki TV show about so far is it's phenomenal filming and good storyline.

The Story So Far

Loki and the Asgardians have been on the run since the Battle of Asgard. They took shelter with Odin in a remote valley in northern Scandinavia. But Loki has plans for them. Odin agrees to let his son lead an expedition to kill the goddess Heimdall and the war party marches north. 

Their travel will be short-lived as the Asgardians are ambushed by Heimdall and Sif. This is where the plot takes a dramatic turn. Loki lets loose his immense Asgardian magic and Sif is turned to stone. Now they are on the run again and must find a way to break the enchantment. 

Their escape attempt is thwarted and they crash land in the middle of the kingdom of Eckington.

While the first episode didn't quite hit the highs of that series, Episode 2 finally delivers the full two-hour version of what made "Loki" so great in the first place. 

All is not what it seems Episode 2 opens with Agni (Eric Bana) and his assistant, Heat Vision (Adam Godley), now running the Empire, and lorded over by the Grim Reaper (Tom Hiddleston) and Whiplash (Jared Harris). Loki, on the other hand, has been sent into the land of the dead.

Who is Lady Loki?

Loki is in trouble, but he's sure it's just a misunderstanding. The God of Mischief just returned to Asgard from the dystopian planet Sakaar and is convinced the Asgardian King has sent the army of the alien realm he rules to round him up and imprison him. 

This time, his life might really be in danger. Or he might just be lying again. Is Thanos going to do to him what he did to Thor? At the end of The Avengers, Thanos faced a furious Thor in battle and placed a bracelet on the unsuspecting god that was supposed to turn him into dust, which is basically the end of his life. 

It might have happened too easily, considering Thanos was super pissed after Thor killed his daughter Gamora, but it was hard to imagine the villain was capable of it.

Is Loki really a Lady?

These are the questions the first episode of the first season of Marvel's "Loki" really asks, and the answer is more complicated than you might think. With Asgard and Midgard at war, the former heir to the throne is sent on a journey of self-discovery, the answers to which are teased at only slightly in the episode. 

"Loki: The God Butcher" turns out to be an episodic adventure unlike any other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite its grim conclusion, the story's first half leaves you wanting to know more. Through exploration of Loki's reluctant relationship with the throne, this second episode builds upon the superhero drama we all fell in love with in "Thor" and "Thor: The Dark World," while also redefining what a Norse God can and cannot do.

Lady Loki in The Last of Their Kind

Spoilers ahead for 'Marvel's The Inhumans,' 'Marvel's Loki: Season 1, Episode 2' The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding this year with the release of the first season of Marvel's new Loki tv show Episode 2 on Wednesday. 

This follow-up to The Avengers sequel, first premiered in March and is called "The Last of Their Kind." "Marvel's The Inhumans' ' has focused mostly on Black Bolt and his family, the Inhumans. In this case, that means the lives of his brother, Loki, the god of mischief, and brother, Victor Von Doom, better known as The Incredible Hulk. 

Despite the fact that Marvel's primary multimedia property is the MCU, the line between the two continues to blur. On Loki's second appearance, he is once again working for Thanos. He is here to steal the Amulet of Anubis.

The Beginning of the End

Loki, the God of Mischief, has been with the Avengers team as long as they have. When Loki discovered his birth parents were Odin and Odin's first wife, one of the most popular theories amongst comic book fans has always been that Loki would eventually step out of Odin's shadow and assume power over Asgard. 

The latest trailer for the tv series seems to support this theory. The trailer features Loki and Odin working together to capture Thor's hammer Mjolnir. Advertisement Suffice to say, the story of the God of Mischief has only just begun. This is the story of a man who discovered the truth of his origins and wants to restore power to his people.

Conclusion

The way we can best explain what happens in the second episode of Marvel's Loki is to say that they took the best parts of this TV series and turned them into a movie. I don't have much of an answer as to why the writing was poor in this episode. 

While the episode did get much better in terms of storytelling, I think that it was much better than what it was initially. The first episode of this series was on par with a movie, but this second episode of this series was one of the best TV episodes in years. 

I don't know how else to describe it, except that it was a complete turn around from the last episode. From being an incoherent mess of different flashbacks in the last episode to a quick intro of the main cast, it really gives this series an edge.
