On October 5th, Loki Season 2 premiered on Disney+! Five episodes are available for viewing, with the finale releasing tomorrow, Thursday, November 9th. 

Despite not having watched any Marvel content since the release of Ms. Marvel, we decided to watch the second season of Loki pretty much blind to anything else happening in the rest of Marvel Universe (MCU) phase four and five. 

But if you haven’t kept up with the MCU entirely, definitely make sure to watch Multiverse of Madness and Quantumania. While you can watch Loki without these two films, they provide a lot more context for those interested in the MCU as a whole. However, if you just enjoy Loki’s story, then we suggest steering clear, as the entirety of the Marvel multiversal plot can get pretty confusing.

The first episode of the season takes place immediately after the finale of season 1, not wasting any time. If you haven’t seen season 1 in a while, it follows Loki, the infamous god of mischief, as he escapes from the main MCU timeline by stealing the Tesseract in 2012. This was during the time of the first Avengers, and was shown in Avengers: Endgame. Now, if you think too much, the timeline will become confusing, but in short, Loki ends up being caught by the keepers of time for leaving his set timeline (Earth-616), known as the TVA (Time Variance Authority).

This brings our beloved Loki to the TVA, where he is set to stand trial by Judge Ravonna Renslayer for crimes against the “sacred timeline.” Season 1 is packed with action and drama, as it follows Loki’s attempts to escape and discover the powers behind the “timeless” TVA, and his adventures in meeting all of his “variants.” 

Season two parallels season one of Loki, so the plot structure pretty much remains the same. So if you didn’t like the pacing of season one, then be prepared to feel conflicted about season two. 

However, this season is quite enjoyable to watch; many of the more toned-down moments have comedic aspects within them. These moments have been so nice to watch since season two of Loki expands more on the friendships Loki has made in his time at the TVA from season 1, like our favorite TVA analyst Mobius. 

So far, having watched five out of six episodes, I truly enjoyed this new season. Loki has a lot of relevant context and lore that I love seeing in audiovisual media. MCU shows and movies usually have world-building aspects in them, each one is released to expand the MCU. While some like Thor: Love and Thunder are very brief in their world-building of the MCU, Loki does not disappoint, even with the TVA being outside of the jurisdiction of time. 

The mystery behind the TVA is very enticing and readily greets you as you enter the second season. The season finale releases tomorrow, after a major cliffhanger; we highly recommend Loki (and its new season) to anyone and everyone!
