And, we may only have a few episodes left, but we’ve still got lots of questions about what will unfold. This week we left the Time Variance Authority (TVA) and got some new scenery, and it wasn’t without tons of action of course. So, with another week until we can watch the next episode, we’re going through all the hidden details that you may have missed!
Thanks to the Marvel fans on the AllEars team and Screen Rant we’re bringing you a look at the biggest Easter eggs we spotted while watching the third episode of Loki!
🚨 Warning! 🚨 Spoilers Ahead!
The episode started off with a change of scenery right away and viewers were treated to a new song during the Marvel opening credit. Instead of the Marvel Studios intro music that played in the previous two episodes, it featured the song “Demons” by Hayley Kiyoko.
And, it wasn’t for just any reason — it was setting up the next scene. If you listen closely to the song lyrics you can hear “Please, forgive me, I’ve got demons in my head” which is exactly what’s happening to Muniteman Agent Hunger C-20.
The new Loki variant (aka Sylvie) was inside of her head looking for the answer to how to get to the Timekeepers at the TVA.
The Variant’s Identity is Revealed
Speaking of the Loki variant, we finally know the real identity of this new character. Last week, we noticed the name Sylvie written on some paperwork in the episode and one version of the credits even named the character played by Sophia Di Martino but now we know that she is in fact Sylvie…just not the one we were expecting.
Sylvie Lushton is a character from the Marvel comics that is also known as The Enchantress. And, it seems that this version of Sylvie is a little different — she is in fact a loki, but her power is enchanting. So, they’re going in a bit of a different direction from the comics for the character in the series.
Sylvie is Missing a Horn
Along with the many call-outs to Sylvie’s enchanting powers, there’s another interesting detail about her — if you look close, she’s missing the left horn on her Loki ears.
The series hasn’t revealed what caused the loss of the horn but Marvel fans will notice that this is a reference to the Loki: Agent of Asgard comic, where Loki and Lady Loki wear similar headpieces.
Reference to ‘Aliens’
While Loki and Sylvie are on the planet of Lamentis-1 in the episode, they have to find a way to hop aboard the train headed to the Ark (which is meant to transport people off of the planet that is being destroyed). And, in the process, they stumble upon two guards who have familiar names.
The names of the train guards, Private Hudson and Corporal Hicks are actually references to the movie Aliens.
Asgardians Request a Refill
And, they may have made it onto the train, but Loki was still stirring up trouble. Sylvie wakes up to find Loki rather intoxicated and singing a song. And, in the end, he requests another drink by smashing his empty glass into the counter.
This is a reference to Thor’s request for another coffee in the Marvel movie Thor.
Looks like that’s just how the Asgardians request a refill!
Familiar Daggar Flip
And, there’s another reference to Thor when Loki pulls out his signature daggers and flips them before heading into a fight with Sylvie at the TVA.
Thor did the same move during the Battle of Asgard in Thor: Ragnarok
The Meaning of Love
Loki and Sylvie have some time to kill when they’re traveling to the Ark, so they start talking about their love life. Loki ponders the meaning of love for a little and then comes to the conclusion that love is like an imaginary dagger.
Screen Rant points out that this description of love contradicts another version of love that we’ve heard during a Marvel series on Disney+. In WandaVision, Vision says “what is grief, if not love persevering?” which is almost the exact opposite of an invisible dagger.
Loki is Bisexual
One other major revelation that came during Loki and Sylvie’s discussion on love is the confirmation that Loki is bisexual — a characteristic that had only been given to Loki in the comics previously.
From the moment I joined @LokiOfficial it was very important to me, and my goal, to acknowledge Loki was bisexual. It is a part of who he is and who I am too. I know this is a small step but I’m happy, and heart is so full, to say that this is now Canon in #mcu #Loki 💗💜💙 pic.twitter.com/lz3KJbewx8

This joins the confirmation that Loki is also gender fluid, which was featured in the first episode of the series.
So, we’ve started to get a few answers to the big questions that the show has brought forward, but there is still much more looming. Of course, we’ll be back next week with more hidden details and easter eggs from the new episode, so stay tuned!
