Wow… that was a good episode. Things are making sense now. I’m actually following it now.

One question… at the end of the credits we hear this phrase:
Spoiler:
You died. Insert your coin loser.




What does it mean?

That seems like a reference to a video game

I know we usually hear some thing over the top of a production logo, or some thing like that at the end of the show… But it just played over the credits.

We see a Zaniac tie-in arcade game in a bar during the episode. That was the movie Brad was starring in when he was in the branched London timeline. The post credit voice is what players of the arcade game hear on the Game Over screen.

Note: It took a bit of digging to find the meaning of this. So now Loki’s producers and writers are turning the audience into Loki with the crazy rabbit hole chasing.

Probably the best episode of the series. I hope we get some real movement on the next MCU arc. But probably not.

Yeah that was awesome! I feel as excited about the show now as I did in S1. Tom Hiddleston just nails it in every scene.

OB’s room in the TVA is the same room that he was using in the branched Timeline.

Cool episode. The dying branches reminds me of The Snap.

The meaning or the explanation? I picked up on that right away . . . just have been trying to piece together exactly what "Zaniac" is since we saw the movie.

Or is it another Zartan Contingent where ... well, some things just are.

This episode really undermined End Game (and did it better).

Definitely a cool episode. Maybe the best of the season so far. Still need to watch the finale later on tonight.
