We see him with Loki in Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and as a good and bad character in Thor: The Dark World and Ragnarok.
Loki MCU Recap
When we last saw Loki, he had lost his sister, Hela. So, to get his revenge on Odin, he went through the barrier and took the Tesseract and a big chunk of Asgard. As a result, Odin was banished and Thor was left at home. As everyone expected, Thor was completely powerless and that’s the reason for Loki’s success.
He went back to his home and made Thor into a slave. Even though he was against him, Thor finally got back to his senses. He told Loki that he would not accept him as an equal. So, they worked together to find the real enemy. A few days later, they got on the side together as a team. But then, Loki said that he had to leave and the two bickered a lot.

Loki Episode 2 Review & Plot
The Loki episode 2 starts off at a portal in the Renaissance fair. It is the 1985 timeline where the minuteman gets killer by the other Loki variant. The minutemen from the Time Variance Authority (TVA) are looking for variance energy. It is the same energy that is produced by variants which in this case is an old Loki Variant. The TVA’s minuteman team is lead by C-20 and other agents. What the TVA doesn’t know is that this Loki is the strongest and smartest. It somehow finds a catch in the nexus events to escape.
In the episode, the variant Loki manages to kill the entire group. It then steals the reset charges and takes their leader C-20 hostage. This hostage is going to pave a road for future episodes. Also, the variant Loki has not revealed his face yet. We hope in the coming episodes they would.
All of this leads Mobius and Loki to work together. They both spend their time looking through all of the different Loki variant’s files. This is all in the attempt to find any clues to catch the dangerous variant.
Opinions & Impressions of Episode 2
First things first. This review won’t give you a detailed rundown of what happened on the show. No, this is a spoiler-free review of Loki Episode 2. I won’t give out any key points. The Episode is something one would have never seen.
The second episode has broken the mold for what we think a web series should do. It’s doing it better than most movies made web series. He’s angrier and hungrier than ever. He’s also smiling, laughing, and being himself. Hiddleston has completely won us over with his performance as Loki in the series. Sure, they might not have this much action or a whole story. But it looks like a character-driven and cinematic story. All because of this Loki.
The first episode of Loki was about the TVA. In the second episode, we got to know more about Loki and TVA plans. This gives an indication that the show is going to surprise you every now and then. To put our Loki Episode 2 Review in one sentence, Loki has hyped us for the next episodes.
A lot of things are in queue to be unveiled. For all those who haven’t watched the first episode, go ahead and do it first. Then watch this, it’s a must-watch! The Animation Loki shows us different sides of Loki. The show is one of the best-interesting shows. The characters are designed in a way that one can recognize. And while that may not be a highlight for most people, the makers have tried their best to make the whole show look appealing. Everything is top-notch.
