    23 "Loki" Details From Episode 3 That You Might've Missed The First Time

    Loki and Sylvie are my new favorite chaotic duo.

    🚨Warning: There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead for Episode 3 of Loki on Disney+!🚨

    Hi, hello, I hope you recovered from Loki Episode 2 and are ready to dive into the next episode. So, here are all the details I noticed in Loki Episode 3:

    If you're new to these posts, welcome, and I apologize for all of my nerdy yelling! If you're returning after WandaVision AND The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, thanks so much for coming back!

    1. First, the song that kicks off Loki Episode 3 is "Demons" by Hayley Kiyoko.

    The lyrics heard are "Searching for nirvana. Something that'll take it all away from me/ Don't bother me, my misery. It's holding me, won't let me speak"

    I also love this, especially because later on in the episode Loki's sexuality is addressed. 

    2. In fact, when the show cuts to Hunter C-20, the "Demons" lyrics talk about having demons in your head, which is exactly what's going on. Hunter C-20 has Sylvie inside her mind.

    This show's use of music is already a 10/10.

    3. Sylvie wears a horn headpiece, like Loki, except hers is missing one of the horns. In the Loki: Agent of Asgard comic series, Loki — and Lady Loki — wears a similar headpiece with a missing horn.

    4. This actually happened in Episode 2, but since the scene shows up again I've got to point it out. When Loki lands in the storm, you can see that he looks to the sky hoping to see Thor, which is different from Loki being scared in The Avengers.

    In The Avengers when Steve Rogers asks if he's afraid of lightning, Loki replies "I'm not overly fond of what follows"

    Yes, I am weeping. Thanks for asking.

    5. When Sylvie enters the TVA, she quickly realizes her powers don't work there, which is something Ravonna told Loki in Episode 1.

    6. Not only is Loki reunited with his daggers, but he also does a little flip with them, which was featured in the Thor: Ragnarok trailers.

    7. The first magic Loki uses after leaving the TVA is his good ol' "teleporting behind the back of your enemy" trick, which he notably used in The Avengers when he stabbed Coulson.

    8. Loki transports himself and Sylvie to Lamentis-1, which is mentioned in the comics. Lamentis is located on the edge of Kree space in Annihilation: Conquest Prologue Issue #1.

    9. In this comic, Lamentis is where a lot of Quasar and Moondragon's story happens. Phyla-Vell takes up the Quasar mantle — Phyla's the daughter of Mar-Vell (yes, from Captain Marvel) — and Moondragon is Drax's daughter.

    Phyla-Vell and Moondragon are also a great queer Marvel couple in the comics.

    10. In Episode 2, I pointed out that Sophia Di Martino's character might not be Lady Loki, but actually Sylvie/Enchantress, and it looks like that's who she is. She tells Loki her name, and Loki calls her magic "enchantments" throughout the episode.

    Marvel / Disney+

    In the comics, Sylvie gets her powers from Loki, and she becomes one of the biggest villains in the Thor comics. Loki could also be combining Enchantress and Lady Loki into one character. 

    11. While on Lamentis-1, Loki uses his shapeshifting abilities, which we notably saw him showcase in Thor: The Dark World when he turned into Steve Rogers.

    12. Loki tells Sylvie that he got his tricks from his mother, and she's the one who taught him. This was previously mentioned in Thor: The Dark World by Thor, who claims Loki had Frigga's tricks, but Thor had her trust.

    Marvel / Disney+

    13. Loki and Sylvie talk about Sylvie's mind-control powers, and in the comics Sylvie/Enchantress uses mental manipulation, most notably in Dark Reign: Young Avengers.

    Yes, Sylvie is linked to the Young Avengers, who include Billy and Tommy Maximoff, and yes, I do love a good Loki and WandaVision possible connection.

    14. My new favorite mischievous duo also have a conversation about love, and whether it's a coincidence or not, I love that it kind of pokes fun at Vision's line from WandaVision.

    Marvel / Disney+

    Later on, Loki also compares love to a dagger.

    15. Sylvie asks Loki if he's ever been in a relationship with "would-be-princesses or perhaps, another prince." This is the first time Loki's bisexuality has been address in the MCU.

    Loki director Kate Herron talked about the moment on Twitter, saying, "It was very important to me, and my goal, to acknowledge Loki was bisexual. It is a part of who he is and who I am, too. I know this is a small step, but I'm happy, and heart is so full, to say that this is now canon in [the] MCU."

    16. In several comics, Loki's sexuality is bi. Writer Al Ewing, who wrote Loki: Agent of Asgard, said, "Yes, Loki is bi. He'll shift between genders occasionally as well."

    Marvel / Disney+

    17. Loki sings in Asgardian while on the train, which is similar to when we heard Wanda sing in Sokovian in WandaVision. In both cases, this is one if the few times we've heard them speak in their first language.

    18. Loki smashes his glass and demands "another" drink, which is of course a brilliant callback to Thor smashing his coffee mug in Thor.

    19. Sylvie takes off her horn headpiece and uses it as a weapon during a fight, which is something Loki also did in Thor: Ragnarok.

    Marvel / Disney+

    20. When Loki is thrown from the train, he lands (and flips his hair) the same way he does after falling in Thor: Ragnarok.

    Marvel / Disney+

    He also landed this way in Episode 2.

    21. Loki realizes that the only way to survive Lamentis's destruction is to board the ark. This is similar to what future Loki realizes in Thor: Ragnarok when Asgard is being destroyed.

    Marvel / Disney+

    22. Not to be the resident "Wanda Maximoff is the most powerful Avenger" nerd, but the fact that Sylvie can only create illusions based on memories and had to be touching a person, but Wanda created a whole world with Westview is huge.

    Marvel / Disney+

    23. And finally, the credits reveal that the two guards who take tickets before boarding the ark are named "PVT Hudson" and "Corporal Hicks," which are nods to Hudson and Hicks from Aliens.

    In Aliens, Hicks was played by Michael Biehn, and Hudson was played by Bill Paxton.
