Marvel Studios has never got anything wrong with Loki and they seem to be continuing that legacy with S2. This is my Loki Season 2 Episode 1 review post.
Loki Season 2 Episode 1 is the perfect way to start a show and its tone matches the vibe of Phase5 of MCU. It maintains the hype, there’s incredible chemistry among the characters, there’s some explanation of technical terms, and it ends on a cliffhanger.
Loki Season 2 Episode 1 Review
Loki Season 2 starts right where episode 6 of Loki Season 1 ends. I love the way how the first shot is of Kang the Conqueror and then you see Loki running. Sylvie accidentally sends back Loki to the TVA in past. It takes him some time to realize that he’s in the past.
He is timeslipping so he is in the past and future in the same place at the same time. If you have watched it you have to agree that there are some absolutely bone chilling moments which set the tone of Loki Season 2.
I absolutely love that Hunter-B15 is now against pruning timelines as she knows that everyone had lives before the TVA. But this scene here where Loki comes across Kang’s statue in a TVA room is best scene.
But soon after this moment, Loki gets back in the TVA in the present and finds Mobius. He tries explaining about timeslipping to Mobius who doesn’t think that it is possible. But when he sees the proof, they rush to Oroborous or OB played by Ke Huy Quan.
The entire sequence with OB, Loki and Mobius is also brilliantly filmed as you get to see the past and present simultaneously. Overall, Loki Season 2 Episode 1 does an amazing work of keeping you engulfed about what’s happening.
Loki Season 2 Episode 1 starts slowly, gets you in the rhythm by referencing Kang, and then ends with a cliffhanger keeping you guessing about what’s next to come, especially with the mid-credit scene.
Loki Season 2 starts off with great chemistry among the characters
Even in the previous season, the chemistry between Loki and Mobius was great. Then came Sylvie, who was equally great with Loki. Season 2 continues this legacy.
Loki and Mobius are great as usual but Ke Huy Quan’s OB stole the entire episode with his charm and innocence. His humor is on point and even when he’s trying to be serious there’s some sort of fun involved.
The next character that looks great is Hunter-B15. Although, only time will tell if she’ll prove to be helpful or not as she’s against killing anyone now.
There’s also some new highlights as the credits roll and I’ll surely do a separate post for that.
I have high hopes with Loki Season 2 and hoping that Marvel Studios does not ruin it.
