The Ending of Loki Episode 3 Explained
By the end of Episode 3, Lamentis, we see Loki and Sylvie/ Lady Loki team up in hopes of catching up aboard the ark and escape the doomed planet from an impending apocalypse as the moon crashes into it in more or less half a day. Earlier in the episode, they escaped to a random place and Sylvie calls it the worst of the worst of all the time and place they could end up in.
Making things worse, the TemPad or the device Sylvie uses to portal or travel through time and space is low on juice and they need enough power to charge it and escape the impending doom of the timeline they jumped into. As they look for a power source, they got to know each other more and by the end of the episode, it seems that they now formed some kind of bond or trust on each other.
When Loki was thrown out of the train, the device was shattered and their only means of escape is the ark which was destroyed right before their eyes. This leaves both of them trapped and stranded on a planet and on a timeline that is about to close. Loki stood in awe while Sylvie walks away in despair.
The ending of Episode 3 is definitely a cliffhanger, it sets up what happens next and how they would try to escape an apocalypse that is meant to happen. They, of course, would not just let it go as Sylvie took years planning whatever it is she had set throughout such time being a fugitive of the Time Variance Authority and it seems that she is also after the Time-Keepers.
While her real plan is yet to be revealed, we see both Loki and Sylvie having quite a display of their abilities, even expounding on it as they discuss more themselves with each other. The episode has unveiled a lot of new information like Loki being a bisexual and that the TVA agents are variants. With these, Episode 4 will surely be another exciting one.
And just like that, we're halfway through the season! What do you think will happen after? Will they find another way to escape? Find out in the next episode of Loki scheduled for release on Wednesday at 3 AM exclusively on Disney+.
