    I Am Once Again Screaming About "Loki," So Here Are 30 Details I Spotted In Episode 5

    We must protect Alligator Loki.

    🚨Warning: There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead for Episode 5 of Loki on Disney+!🚨

    Hi, hello, I hope you recovered from Loki Episode 4 and are ready to dive into the next episode. So, here are all the details I noticed in Episode 5.

    Also, sorry this is a day late, vacation really got in the way. 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 title of Episode 5 is a nod to the Journey Into Mystery comic books. This Marvel comic series is when Thor and Loki first appeared in 1952.

    Starting with Journey Into Mystery Issue #83, the series ran The Mighty Thor stories. Loki made his debut in Journey Into Mystery Issue #85.

    2. While inside the TVA, a monitor showing the sacred timeline reads, "Oak Island, Nova Scotia." In real life, it's believed that treasure is hidden there, like Captain Kidd's missing fortune, the Ark of the Covenant, and more.

    Since the 1700s, the island has been visited by treasure hunters, who are trying to prove that the various riches are buried there.

    3. If you quickly pause, you can see that the Avengers Tower inside The Void actually has a sign that says "Qeng" on it. In the comics, Tony sells the old Avengers Tower to Qeng Enterprises and Mr. Gryphon, who was working for Kang the Conqueror.

    I also feel like I don't have to mention this again, but here it goes: Kang the Conqueror is set to make his first appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

    4. While in The Void, the Lokis avoid Alioth, who is a villain pulled directly from the Marvel comic books. In the comics, Alioth is Kang the Conqueror's rival, who was accidentally set free by Ravonna Renslayer.

    First appearing in Avengers: The Terminatrix Objective Issue #1, Alioth basically broke free of the constraints of time and wreaked havoc on everything and everyone.

    5. In The Void, you can spot a giant version of Yellowjacket's helmet from Ant-Man. In the MCU, the last time we saw Yellowjacket was when he shrunk down and disappeared.

    In the comics, Yellowjacket also betrays the Avengers to Immortus, a version of Kang, and the Time-Keepers.

    6. The Lokis pass by the Thanos Copter, and this might be my favorite Easter egg of all time. In the comics, Thanos uses his helicopter to attack Hellcat and try to steal the Cosmic Cube, aka the Tesseract.

    7. We get our first glimpse at a Thor Variant in this episode, and it's actually Throg — yes, that would be a frog version of Thor.

    8. Also, Throg is trapped in a glass jar with "T365" written on it, which is a nod to Thor Issue #365 from 1966, and it featured Loki transforming Thor into a frog.

    In this comic, Thor aids the frogs with some help from alligators, and we of course see Alligator Loki in this episode.

    9. And this moment resembles when Thor was trapped in the glass cage by Loki in The Avengers — in fact, the yelling even sounds similar if you listen closely.

    10. Among the debris while traveling down to the Lokis' hideout, you can obviously spot a version of Mjolnir, but also a bunch of lunch trays from the TVA.

    11. The Lokis enjoy some boxed Roxxiwine, which is wine from Roxxcart, which we visited in Episode 2 when Sylvie was hiding out there.

    Roxxcart could be related to an evil corporation from the comic books called Roxxon, which was also seen in the Iron Man movies.

    12. Next to Alligator Loki's pool, you can spot a copy of The Mystery and Lore of Monsters by C.J.S. Thompson, a book which details several monsters and how some of their origins are grounded in real life.

    13. Behind Classic Loki, you can see a Polybius arcade game. In the 1980s, the Polybius arcade game mysteriously disappeared after it was reported that players were suffering from wild side effects like nightmares and hallucinations.

    The urban legend says that the Polybius machines were visited by "men in black," who collected data from the machines right before they disappeared.

    14. Also, you'll notice that the Lokis hideout is inside an old bowling alley, so I'd love to think that the entire bowling alley was pulled into The Void by the TVA because it housed a Polybius arcade game.

    15. When Classic Loki tells the story of how he survived after Thanos, he calls him the Mad Titan. Even though this is Thanos's nickname from the comics, this is only the second time he's been called this in the MCU.

    Classic Loki saying, "I cast a projection of myself so real, even the Mad Titan believed it" vs. Gamora being referred to as "the adopted daughter of the Mad Titan"

    16. You can see Kid Loki drinking a Hi-C Ecto Cooler, which was released after the success of Ghostbusters in 1984 and the animated series.

    The Hi-C Ecto Cooler is the third discontinued but beloved drink we've seen on Loki so far. Mobius often drinks Josta, and Casey drank BoKu in Episode 2.

    17. During Mobius and Sylvie's escape, you can spot a theater marquee for the Wrightsville Theatre. Wrightsville, PA was also seen on a TVA timeline monitor in Episode 4.

    If anyone has any theories about who or what is so important about Wrightsville, hit me up in the comments!

    18. One of the Loki Variants we meet is President Loki, which is taken directly from the Vote Loki comic books from 2016.

    The comic book series followed Loki as he tries to run for president of the United States, and how reporter Nisa Contreras tries to stop him from winning.

    19. President Loki mentions that they prefer "snakes to wolves," which is a nod to Norse mythology, where Loki's children include a snake and wolf.

    20. Among President Loki's group, you can see a Loki that uses his hair as horns. We saw him in Episode 2 when Mobius was running through the Loki Variants the TVA has pruned from the timeline.

    21. President Loki's hand is ultimately bitten off by Alligator Loki, and in the past, Marvel has paid homage to Luke losing his hand in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, so this could be continuing that tradition.

    In Phase 2 of the MCU, Loki pretended to cut off Thor's hand, Bucky's lost his hand (and arm), and Groot also lost his hand.

    22. Inside Mobius's pizza car, you can spot a hula girl on the dashboard. A hula girl has previously been spotted in Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. and was linked to Coulson and the TAHITI program, and then in WandaVision when Darcy and Vision stole a truck.

    23. The USS Eldridge is suddenly dropped inside The Void and swallowed by Alioth. The USS Eldridge was part of the "Philadelphia Experiment," in which the ship was reportedly rendered "invisible" in 1983.

    24. The license plate on Mobius's pizza car reads, "GRN W1D." This is a reference to Mark Gruenwald, who inspired Mobius's likeness in the comics, and he also helped co-create Alioth.

    Mark was also referenced in Episode 2.

    25. Before Loki, Sylvie, Mobius, and the other Lokis go to fight Alioth, you can see what looks like Ronan's ship from Guardians of the Galaxy.

    26. When Alioth is approaching Sylvie and Loki, you can spot a statue of the Living Tribunal's head. In the Marvel comics, Living Tribunal's purpose is to protect and keep the balance in the Multiverse.

    27. I've watched enough MCU movies and shows to recognize a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier when I see one, so you can see one that's crashed in The Void too.

    28. While causing a distraction, Loki sets fire to the sword Kid Loki gave him. This is probably a nod to Lævateinn from Norse mythology, which is a sword created by Loki that sometimes has a burning blade.

    29. As your resident Wanda Maximoff fan, I have to point out that when Classic Loki creates Asgard using magic, it's very similar to when Wanda created Westview. Classic Loki wished he could go back to Asgard, while Wanda wished she could have a life with Vision.

    I feel like I tweet about this once a week, but I need Loki and Wanda to do magic together in the MCU.

    30. And finally, we catch a glimpse of a mysterious city after Sylvie and Loki enchant Alioth, and I am losing my mind that this is probably Chronopolis, which is the home to Kang the Conqueror in the comics.
