Loki Episode 3 Recap: Marvel Goes Mandalorian on Lamentis-1

Loki Episode 3 – now available on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar – felt a lot like an episode of The Mandalorian. Part of this was down to the graphics, with the sprawling empty (albeit purple tinted) Lamentis-1, the abandoned mining town, and acres of loose gravel, similar to the landscapes we regularly see in the Star Wars series that are nearby of the franchise’s western roots. There’s also the question of the guards we’re looking for tickets to the evacuation ships on Lamentis-1, which is essentially the Marvel version of Stormtroopers. And then there’s the design of Loki Episode 3 – Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) try to escape a desperate situation – which could also repeat itself outside Loki eventually to an ongoing series.

All of this was made possible by Loki‘s gimmick by Sylvie, who uses apocalyptic events to cover up her actions, which in the end also leads to some kind of cliffhanger Loki Episode 3 – It’s also quite short at 36 minutes, which you might not have noticed with all the cheering until it ends abruptly. Sure, by and large, Loki and Sylvie will be fine. But how do you get rid of Lamentis-1 now that the time and space device TempPad is broken and the spaceship Arche has been destroyed?

for all that Loki Episode 3 – titled “Lamentis”, directed by Kate Herron and written by Mrs. Marvel Lead author Bisha K. Ali – first tells us about Sylvie’s plans that Loki was so interested in to return to Loki Episode 2. We see Sylvie and Hunter C-20 (Sasha Lane) in comfortable Hawaiian clothes chatting in a bar somewhere as if they had been friends for years. The clever Sylvie, however, has questions for her – how many people are guarding the timekeepers and how do I find the elevators (they are gold) – which puts C-20 off and makes it clear to her that she doesn’t really know Sylvie. Loki Episode 3 then reveals that Sylvie “bewitched” C-20 and all of this is happening in her head, as on the astral plane, in Marvel terms.

Loki Episode 3 then jumps to the right where we left off Loki Cliffhanger in Episode 2 when Sylvie arrives at the Time Variance Authority to carry out her plan: kill the Time Keepers. That explains the great distraction it created Loki Episode 2 that took most of the TVA guards away from their home base. When Sylvie sets off, she jumps on a TVA Hunter before realizing her magic isn’t working here. She then vaporizes them or knocks them down at her own gun. Loki, who followed Sylvie through the time door Loki Episode 2 arrives in TVA too. He takes his knives from the nearby locker and confronts Sylvie. Their knife fight is interrupted by Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) before Loki saves them by teleporting away.

Sylvie is annoyed and immediately tries to jump back with the TempPad only to find that the juice has run out. She cannot use it again until it is charged. Loki takes it out of her hands and uses his magic to hide it, just for Sylvie to point out that she needs to know how to charge it. In the meantime, they are stuck on this new purple moon, the Loki Episode 3 turns out to be Lamentis-1 in 2077. A nearby planet is about to collide with it and will kill all life on Lamentis-1. That makes sense, because all the places Sylvie visited were apocalypse that allowed her to hide from the TVA. Sylvie wants to kill Loki for stranding her, but he calms her down and suggests a truce.

On the way to a nearby mining town on Lamentis-1, Loki wonders why she doesn’t like to be called Loki or Variant. Loki is no longer a name she identifies with – meaning it’s her first name anyway – and has since adopted the alias “Sylvie,” a name associated with Loki mythology in the Marvel Comics . But Sylvie was never a variant of Loki in the comics. It also seems to have a very different background Lokialthough to be honest Loki Episode 3 tells us very little. But since enchantment is her main power, it means that, after all, Sylvie could be called the sorceress, as in the comics.

Loki and Sylvie arrive at a kind of hut that could give them the energy to charge the TempPad. Sylvie opts for a more confrontational appearance that doesn’t work for her when the woman (Susan Gallagher) shoots her away with a sonic weapon. Loki tries to be smarter. He talks her down first and then turns into her dead husband – after seeing a picture of them through the window – but the wife blows him away too. Her husband has never been so cute, she calls out to Loki. She asks what the two devils want from her before directing her to a train station on the outskirts that will take her to the ark. But getting tickets won’t be easy, she notes. However, with a combination of each other’s magic, they sneak on the train.

Inside, they have the first heart to heart when they talk about their respective mothers, how they were adopted and loved. Loki, who is talking about his mother, catches up with Sylvie because she doesn’t remember hers. The conversation about Loki Episode 3 then goes to past lovers – which confirms that Loki is bisexual, even though this slantingly implies not being said. They then decide to rest as they have more to dress up and steal later. Sylvie wakes up to discover Loki without his guardian disguise and sings openly in Asgardian. He is drunk. She sees a strange man leave the compartment and sees that someone appears. Loki thinks Sylvie is paranoid and points out that it is because of the “omniscient fascists” – she means the TVA.

Sylvie’s concerns come true when a bunch of guards show up to request her tickets. The drunk Loki tries to conjure up tickets but fails, leaving the duo in a fight. It culminates in Loki being thrown off the train and Sylvie jumping after him because of the TempPad. She puts a knife to his throat, which Loki reveals the hidden TemPad – it’s broken. Sylvie scolds him because he’s drunk, Loki says he’s hedonistic. She’s also hedonistic, protests Sylvie, but never at the expense of the mission. What a mission, Loki taunted, you can’t beat the TVA. However, Sylvie is very angry with Loki, lets out a scream and then sits down on a nearby sand hill, dejected that they will die on Lamentis-1. Why don’t they try to get on the ark and make it disappear, Loki wonders.

With a new plan, Loki and Sylvie begin the long journey to the ark. Loki wants to know how her spell works. He’s told her so much, but he doesn’t know anything about her. Sylvie mentions the tactical advantage, but Loki protests that he wants to trust her. Finally, under pressure, Sylvie explains what enchantment is – it really comes down to how strong a person’s mind is – and leads to an accidental revelation. Before joining TVA, C-20 was an ordinary person on Earth. This is huge, more so for Loki and the public anyway, Sylvie just assumed he knew. Everyone in the TVA is a variant like her, which sheds new light on how we see Mobius (Owen Wilson), Ravonna, and the rest.

When Loki and Sylvie get to the ark – they Loki The production design of Episode 3 changes to a lot of neon here – the spaceship is about to take off and the destruction of Lamentis-1 is imminent. Loki and Sylvie attempt to penetrate the guards, but it is in vain when the ark is hit by planetary debris and destroyed before their very eyes. Loki just stands there stunned while Sylvie leaves. Loki Episode 3 leaves a cliffhanger (like the previous episode) as Bonnie Guitars’ Dark Moon overrides the credits.

Loki Episode 3 is now streamed on Disney + and Disney + Hotstar. New episodes will air every Wednesday at around 12:30 p.m. IST / 12 p.m. PT.
