So, Loki season 2 wrapped up a while ago, and let's talk feelings. Overall, it's a wild ride, right? The finale gives us the warm and fuzzies, but there's a hint of, "Could it have been better?" lingering in the air.
First things first, Tom Hiddleston deserves a round of applause for Loki's final line. In an interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, he spills the beans on why it's so darn perfect. Drawing on Loki's earlier desperate plea to Odin, this time it's all about selflessness and growth. The fact that Hiddleston had only 40 minutes to come up with that gem is mind-blowing. The guy went for a jog, listened to some Thor score, and boom – brilliance.
Now, about the season – it's been a bit of a rollercoaster, hasn't it? We start with Loki trying to fix the timeline, only to realize he's just making things worse. Classic Loki move, really. The finale, titled "Glorious Purpose," ties up Loki's story in a bow but also sets the stage for more Marvel madness.
We move from a Loki character study to a TVA ensemble vibe. Some new characters enter the scene, like Victor Timely and Ouroboros, bringing a whole new level of complexity. The connections between them are there, but some plot twists feel like they hit the brakes too soon.
Visuals, though ,they nailed it. The finale's got Loki doing his magical thing against a backdrop of a dying multiverse. It's a feast for the eyes, even if you're scratching your head about what's actually going on. Loki becomes the new Time-Keeper, and the MCU is heading in a new direction.
But here's the kicker: There are some shade on the overall coherence of the season. It's like they were trying to do too much, you know? The tone jumps around, new characters pop in, and it dilutes the Loki flavor we all love.
In the end, the finale gives us the feels, and Tom Hiddleston's Loki bows out in style. But those earlier episodes might leave you thinking, "Could it have been more of a smooth ride?"
