So I think either there are no time lords and the judge/boss gal is filling in as a ruse. Or she is in fact one of the time lords.

Also, my theory on Kang the Conqueror is that he's a control freak who thinks he is ordained to 'tend' the timeline as a sort of gardener. Then Loki/shenanigans disrupt his happy time-garden and he snaps, and decides that its best to wipe out the timeline and restart fresh, which leads into him being a new big bad for the Avengers to have to deal with.

Everything is setting up for the multiverse. The Canon is becoming too limiting.

I can't wait to see Deadpool's surprise cameo in Doctor Strange 2.

If Deadpool has a surprise Cameo that would be incredible.  I would love it.  So many fun and silly jokes they could do with the multiverse.

So what's the over/under on Sylvie going back in time, pulling Loki back before he was "deleted" and then Loki saving Mobius....

hold up... I was in the middle of typing the above and then the mid Credit scene played...
nevermind. Carry on.

were there mid/post credits on any previous episodes? I don't remember see any.

Nope.  First one (in Loki)

If you go on the Marvel Studios subreddit, the mods always sticky a reply at the top of their spoiler topic that says if there's midcredits/end credits scenes without spoiling what they are.
Just some random guy on the internet who has a different opinion of games than you.

That's good to know!

I watched the last two episodes the other day, and something told me there'd be a post-credits scene on that last episode.  It figures that Marvel wouldn't just let the episode end with Loki being deleted.

I don't wonder what's up with wherever Loki Prime landed.  Is that someplace that all deleted variants go? Or is there some trickery at play?

Considering how much of a farce the TVA is turning out to be, I expected a twist like this.

I wonder if the time stones work again at the end of time? If only Sylvie had known what was in that drawer.

Latest episode was pretty funny. I think there's only 6 eps right?

Biggest Easter egg I can recall was the Thanos Copter, but there were certainly others in not recalling.
The war of the Loki's was pretty funny too.
Not Our Hiddleston Loki vs GatorLoki, and NOHLoki losing his hand just before the fighting started, and them all betraying each other. Good stuff.

Its another Loki at the end of the void. Calling it now.

Would be great if it was our original Loki that 'died' in Infinity War. They've teased it enough he either lived like I always believed, or at the end of all things Loki 'returns' to his proper time and ends up doing the trick to avoid getting killed by Thanos.

Lol. Just as long as the final 20 minutes are contract negotiations for future MCU appearances.

Well...it was something a bit more substantive in many ways, and we get a season 2 of Loki. Also rumors point to Tom Hiddleston/Loki being in Multiverse of Madness so things are definitely going to get super crazy there, though we knew that already.

Anyone else happy with Loki and the other MCU D+ offerings? They have been enjoyable but a bit frustrating at the same time for me. Like they have missed some opportunities and were more setting the stage for the big movies to take and run with.

The ending of Loki felt a little anti-climatic to me.  The setup for future content was great, but I felt that was all the finale was going for.  It feels almost like a prelude to either Dr. Strange or the second season.  Either way, the show was great overall.  Tom Hiddleston as Loki is just a pure delight, and I got about as much of it as I could've asked for.

Even though I enjoyed Loki and look forward to a 2nd season, for some reason it never really drew me in.
The door it left open in the end is interesting, and I look forward to seeing how that shapes the entry of all of everything recently acquired into the new MCU timeline, starting with Spider-Man and Doctor Strange. Alligator Loki and Throg being present were nice little things that I hope come back at some point (there was a deleted scene for Throg vs Loki when Loki was watching his life of losses reel <Loki lost to the frog>)



Having said that though.... I still haven't seen Black Widow.... and i'm usually an MCU opening weekend type, and have the ability to watch it from home. Not really sure what I'm waiting for, but event though I haven't seen it, it still seems like a movie that should've came out mid phase 3.
AM I trippin? should I watch it already and stop holding out for some lost motivation?

Eh, reviews of Black Widow say it is alright to good-ish, but the biggest complaint is how it should have come out earlier like you said. "Too little too late" was something I saw tossed around a bit. Truthfully Black Widow should have been released when Captain Marvel was as a prelude to Endgame or earlier. After knowing she perishes in Endgame it really took a lot of the thunder from her solo flick and really, Captain Marvel did very little to support the buildup for Endgame in hindsight. Especially considering how little she was involved in the core plots of the film. Black Widow as opposed to Marvel was an already established core character in the MCU and her solo film could have given a few nuggets that could hit harder when she gives her life in Endgame.

I've not seen it either and honestly if you haven't yet might be worth waiting for it to be free on D+. I'm actually not sure I want to go to the theater for half of the current MCU films, especially when I can wait a few months and see them on D+. Its what, three months at most? Why drop $30 on the silly Premier Access or that and more in a theater and risk mingling with clowns that are not vaccinated?

Loki was my favorite of the first three Marvel Disney+ shows. It wasted none of its runtime. Michael Waldron and Kate Herron (who will, unfortunately, not be returning for Season 2) made the extremely wise choice to not relegate He Who Remains as a post credit scene as originally planned.

A friend of a friend put Black Widow on his Plex server so that's how I watched it. The movie is fine. Everything Stratos said above rings true. Natasha's death in Endgame would have hit waaaaaaaaay harder had Black Widow released before it.
