The snake is swallowing its own tail. Loki season 2 has come to an end, does it satisfy the sci-fi nerds Jim and A.Ron? Does the emotion connect to the action? Is it a truly perfect parallel to the very first Thor movie? Whether or not this is where we leave the god of mischief, this season gave us a great story for one of our favorite Marvel characters.
Science fiction is a widely read and respected genre, ok?! And the show is excelling at embodying some of those sci-fi tropes you know and hopefully love. As the known universe gets spaghettified, this show becomes a meta commentary on the comic book genre. Catch up on this discussion of Marvel’s Loki for the Easter Eggs you missed, eerie character parallels, and more! And remember, it’s not about the why.
It’s not a bummer of an episode, but it should have been. Billions of people were wiped away and all we got were blank stares. Where’s the big budget going if not to another big SFX destruction sequence? Not to say the episode was bad, this episode of Marvel’s Loki has set up some things to look forward to. Loki is tempted to the dark side and we love to see it!
Was Clem just an idiot this whole time? Just like the rest of the season, this finale had its Elmore Leonard moments. The surprises at the end had Jim and A.Ron pointing at the screen like the Leo DiCaprio meme. Find out what moments were quick on the draw, and which fumbled.
Sandy’s life is in danger. The identity of the mole is revealed. Jim recants his opinion on the cop. Carolyn is messing with other people’s cool stuff. Some interesting observations in the feedback. Don’t you dare simp!
Is there a mastermind behind all of this? Clement remains one slippery SOB. Raylan and Carolyn’s relationship is in hot water. Are they all stumbling through this on blind luck? With only two episodes left, Jim and A.Ron are trying desperately to figure out the identity of the mole.
Eventually you’ll get what you want, and we know you want more Timothy Olyphant. How high would the moral stakes have to be for the audience to be ok with Raylan outright attacking Clement? See which predictions came true and find out what the Chicken Fat song has to do with it all.
Who will try to climb Mt. Raylan before the series is over and why will it be Carolyn? Does Sweety mean what we think it means? And how vengeful are the Albanians really? Join us for our discussion of Justified: City Primeval episode 4, Kokomo, and let us know what you think.
We need to face the music, Raylan is a bad dad. There, I said it! Even though there’s a goodbye, we do get to meet a couple of fun new characters. The mad man Clement is ready to hustle the Albanians. Some of the cops are getting squirrely. And the show itself starts to deconstruct the Raylan mythos.
Raylan is back with his daughter Willa in tow. In two sweeping episodes, J:CP effortlessly builds a rich setting in Detroit. We meet a cast of characters who are all more than what meets the eye. There’s a mysterious tunnel system. And various Chekov’s nouns are introduced for what we hope are going to be big payoffs. Will Raylan’s cowboy approach be enough to take on the criminals in the streets of Detroit?
