I really enjoyed this episode. And I’m sorry he’s a women beater and that truly devalues him as a person to me, but Jonathan Majors is damn fun to watch.

So Ms. Minutes is a rogue AI with a crush? That was weird. I wonder that the secret was for Rennslayer.

Majors is damn good in this.

I'm not keen on Majors. Last season I found him showy and annoying. More tolerable in the last Ant Man but even though he changed it up, all the stammering and accent all feel like an attempt at a character, like something for a skit. A bit repetitive with the chasing but the World's Fair setting was great. Looked like they spent a lot on it.

I feel like straight forward time travel akin to Biff and BTTF 2 would be much simpler than these variant Kangs who look like but don't talk like Kang but could grow up to be Kang even though they're the same age and a normal human. It's not grabbing me.

Thought it was a cool episode because of the era it was set in. Majors is good as Kang and his variant(s). Best Marvel output in a while.

Great episode. Love the grandfather paradox - having Loki and Mobius bring He Who Remains to the time loom to fix, which will probably lead to him wanting unlimited power, etc.

I loved it when Miss Minutes popped out at the end and said “love you”, realized it was Renslayer, and then played it off.

And correct me if I’m wrong, but his latest prototype he went back to get was his ship from Ant-Man 3?


Did anyone else get the Goosebumps “commercial” at the beginning of this episode? I skipped it, but I have the no ads subscription. Not cool.

I was thinking that the secret was Renslayer and HWR were once together and partners, but he wiped her memory to take everything over for himself.

The other theory is that she is a variant of Kang.

Finally watched this and it was by far my least favorite episode of Loki. Majors has always struck me as an over-acting theater student who had no business getting as big as he did. I did like them featuring the world's first Ferris Wheel but then they quickly torpedoed the story with their questionable nautical navigation -- Somehow they needed to head west across Lake Michigan to reach Wisconsin and then showed the boat going south along the Chicago shorefront.

I'm binging now. My first guess -- and a way for Disney to possibly move forward -- is that she is a Kang variant. Second guess: daughter. On the topic of Majors, it seemed as if the stuttering and stammering were a character Timely Kang played in his own life. It went away to a large degree when he wasn't "performing" for investors or conning people.

Really liked the first two episodes, wasn't lost "in between" as some people seemed to be. As was mentioned, the set pieces for this one were amazing, but it is starting to feel a little "MacGuffin of the week." The story was a bit drawn out.

Alternate proposal:
Spoiler:
Make Ouroboros the real He Who Remains. It explains his paradoxical knowledge of the TVA.
