"Loki" Episode 4 Is Here, Which Means Here Are 23 Details That We Need To Talk About Now

·8 min read

🚨Warning: There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead for Episode 4 of Loki on Disney+!🚨

Hi, hello, I hope you recovered from Loki Episode 3 and are ready to dive into the next episode. So, here are all the details I noticed in Episode 4:

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, this is just an interesting parallel I noticed, but whenever Asgard is shown in a Thor movie, we see it as if we're standing on the rainbow bridge, looking at the front — but for Sylvie's backstory, we approached Asgard from the mountains and saw the back of the palace.

2.When kid Sylvie is playing inside the palace, she's telling a story about how the Valkyrie swooped in and saved Asgard, and, like Sylvie, Thor admired the Valkyrie growing up too.

Sylvie saying, "The Valkyrie flies over, defeats the dragon, and saves Asgard" vs Thor saying, "I used to wanna be a Valkyrie when I was younger"

Also, now I just want Sylvie and Valkyrie to interact in the future.

3.You can also see that one of kid Sylvie's toys is a wolf, and we've previously seen Fenris, a giant Asgardian wolf, in Thor: Ragnarok.

In Loki Episode 2, Loki talks about an old Asgardian saying involving wolves, and in Norse mythology, Fenrir, a giant wolf, is Loki's son.

4.When Ravonna is apprehending kid Sylvie, her hunter number is "A-23." This is a nod to Avengers Issue #23, aka the first time Ravonna appeared in the comics.

The issue also featured Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and more battling Kang the Conqueror, who is set to make his first appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

5.When Mobius and Hunter B-15 are looking for a Nexus event, you can see "Morag" at the top of the monitor. Morag is where Peter Quill found the Orb, which contained the Power Stone, in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Then, in Avengers: Endgame, Nebula and Rhodey were dropped off on Morag to get the Power Stone.

6.This isn't really a detail, but I absolutely loved this conversation between Loki and Sylvie about how Lokis always survive. I just think it's a great parallel to how we've seen Loki die several times in the MCU, but he always comes back.

Sylvie asking Loki, "Do you think that what makes a Loki a Loki is the fact that we're destined to lose?"

7.The theater Mobius takes Loki into is "Time Theater 25," and yes, I love Marvel numbers, so 25 could reference Journey Into Mystery Issue #25, which deals with aliens erasing a man's memory so he doesn't tell anyone where they are.

In Time Theater 25, Loki tells Mobius that everyone at the TVA are Variants, which is something Ravonna doesn't want to get out, and the episode deals with Ravonna trying to hide that, namely by killing C-20. Also, in case you don't know, the Journey Into Mystery comics are where Thor and Loki first appeared.

8.When Loki is put in a time loop by Mobius, he's reliving a moment where Sif attacks him after he cuts her hair. This is a moment taken from Norse mythology where Loki cut Lady Sif's gorgeous hair, which she was very proud of.

The story says, "It was Loki, the god of fire and mischief, who cast this sleeping spell on Sif. He found her dozing with her gorgeous hair flowing all around her, and his evil mouth smiled at this chance to make trouble in the Thunder God’s household."

Marvel / Disney+

9.Also, not a hidden detail, but shoutout to Jaimie Alexander for making her first appearance as Sif since Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 in 2015.

Loki saying he remembers the moment with Sif, but got over it very quickly

Jaimie appeared in Thor, Thor: The Dark World, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and she'll be playing Sif again in Thor: Love and Thunder.

10.Sylvie is taken by the TVA to "Time Theater 47," yes another number I'm gonna yell about. So, 47 could be a nod to What If? Issue #47, which actually follows what would've happened if Loki had Thor's hammer, not Thor.

What If... is also an upcoming Disney+ animated series.

11.Mobius mentions the other types of Variants the TVA has encountered. We've seen Kree in Captain Marvel and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Titans refers to Thanos's race, but this is the first mention of vampires, which links to the upcoming Blade movie.

Mobius saying, "You know, we brought in Kree, Titans, vampires. Why is it the two orphan demigods are such a pain in the ass?"

Mahershala Ali will be playing Blade, a notable vampire hunter from the comics, in the upcoming movie.

12.When Mobius says that Loki only does partners if he's planning to betray them or if they help in some way, it's a nod to Loki's work with Thanos, especially in The Avengers.

Mobius telling Loki, "I guess you don't do partners. Unless, of course, it benefits you, and you intend to betray them at some point"

13.When Mobius signs the paperwork in Ravonna's office, he glances down at the Franklin D. Roosevelt High School pen again. I'm starting to think this might be a trophy from Mobius's real life before he was captured by the TVA.

14.When Ravonna places Sylvie's sword with her other trophies, she puts it near her old TVA helmet and staff, and in the beginning of the episode, we learned that Sylvie was the Variant that got away from Ravonna.

15.When Mobius looks at C-20's file on Ravonna's TemPad, you can see three dates. One of them being "03.15.2050," which corresponds to the Roxxcart disaster in 2050.

16.I just really love the attention to detail the production designers put into these Marvel shows, so I'm going to point out that above the Time-Keepers' elevator, you can spot the TVA's motto.

A sign reading, "For all time. Always"

Later on, when B-15 frees Sylvie and Loki, she says the motto.

17.Okay, while we find out these Time-Keepers are androids, their designs do match the Time-Keepers from the comic books, which is honestly so cool.

Also, idk, while we are here, I feel like it's important to note that in the comics, the Time-Keepers clash with Scarlet Witch A LOT. They try to stop her from bearing children because they realize how powerful she is because she's a Nexus Being. Basically, Loki and WandaVision are much more related than you might realize, and I'd assume they are REALLY setting up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Marvel / Disney+

18.And when Sylvie decapitates one of the Time-Keepers and realizes it's an android, I started cackling because in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Sam listed androids as one of the "big three" beings they always fight.

Sylvie saying, "Fake. Mindless androids" vs. Sam saying, "Androids, aliens, and wizards. Every time we fight, it's one of the three"

19.When Ravonna gets rid of Loki, she stabs him in the back, which is exactly how Loki killed Coulson in The Avengers.

This also looked a lot like when Vision disappeared at the end of WandaVision, and yes, I am still fragile.

20.It's our first post-credits scene for Loki and wow, oh wow, it's a big one. Loki meets four other Lokis, and it's amazing. We see Classic Loki, which is an homage to Jack Kirby's original design for the character, Kid Loki, Alligator Loki (lol), and a Loki that looks like he wields a hammer, like Thor.

Remember, earlier I mentioned that What If? comic where Loki wields Mjolnir.

21.I feel like it's important to point out that Kid Loki shows up in the Young Avengers comic books, which means we've just added yet another key member to that story in the MCU.

The four Lokis vs. Billy and Tommy from WandaVision

In terms of members of the Young Avengers, we met Billy and Tommy in WandaVision, Eli Bradley in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Cassie Lang in Ant-Man. Meanwhile, Kate Bishop will appear in Hawkeye and America Chavez will be in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Y'all, IT'S HAPPENING. In the comics, Kid Loki takes Wiccan, aka Billy Maximoff's powers, for a little while.

Marvel / Disney+

22.Also, behind the four Lokis, you can spot the ruins of Avengers Tower in whatever this world is.

23.And finally, the song that plays after the post-credits scene is "I'll Take That Drink Now" by Alan Silvestri, which also played when the Avengers apprehended Loki in The Avengers.
