Loki Episode 3 was incredible, but it seems like Marvel pulled out all the stops with this episode. Our minds are officially blown. Once again, this is another episode of “I told you so,” with several confirmations of theories we had early on. However, we’re still, “WOW,” to use one of Owen Wilson’s favorite phrases. Are you ready for this Loki episode 4 breakdown?

This is your spoiler warning. We aren’t kidding.

Loki Episode 4 Breakdown & Easter Eggs

Episode 4 of Loki begins with Sylvie as a child on Asgard, playing in the Throne Room, when the TVA shows up to arrest her for crimes against the sacred timeline.

Renslayer is the Hunter who brings her in. Sylvie escapes the TVA during her hearing by stealing Renslayer’s TemPad and disappearing to some other place on the timeline.

Renslayer reveals to Mobius that the hostage C-20 is dead and theTime-Keepers are upset at how close Sylvie got to them; she orders Mobius to find the variants ASAP.

Back on Lamentis-1, the world is ending. Sylvie tells Loki, “The universe wants to break free, so it manifests chaos. Like me being born the Goddess of Mischief.”

She tells him how the TVA took her as a child prisoner but she escaped. Everywhere she went, she created a Nexus Event that signaled the TVA.

Loki and Sylvie are comforting each other in the last moments before Lamentis is completely destroyed, and it creates a timeline branch so strong it not only shows up on the TVA monitor, but it practically shoots straight up. Mobius arrives on Lamentis and takes the duo into custody.

Just as Mobius is about to send Loki through a Time Cell, Loki tells him the TVA is lying. 

The Time Cell sends Loki to Asgard, where he sees Lady Sif, and he’s stuck in a time loop at a moment where he has apparently cut part of Sif’s hair in a prank. Because it’s a time loop, when Loki tries to reason with Sif and get her to help him, she just kicks his butt…repeatedly. 

This moment is based on a story in Norse Mythology, not based on a scene we have seen in the MCU. Lady Sif, the wife of Thor, has her hair cut off by Loki. Thor threatens him until he can fix it. However, in the MCU, Sif needs no help from Thor.

Mobius retrieves Loki out of the Time Cell to determine the cause of the Nexus Event on Lamentis. Loki denies everything before deciding to tell him an elaborate made-up story. Mobius casually mentions Sylvie is dead to see Loki’s reaction; he seems taken aback before he dons his uncaring Loki mask he wears so well.

That brief look was all it took for Mobius to figure out it was two variants falling for one another that caused the spike in the timeline. Sylvie and Loki have feelings for each other and that kind of thing can cause pure chaos that breaks reality.

Loki tries again to implore Mobius that the Time-Keepers kidnapped all the TVA peeps from the timeline, the entire TVA is comprised of Variants, and their memories have been erased–memories which Sylvie can access through enchantment. 

In Renslayer’s office, she signs off on Mobius’ paperwork and he asks why she wouldn’t let him interrogate Sylvie. She claims to be protecting him. She then asks him if he could go anywhere and anytime where would it be? He never answers. He continues to ask about Hunter C-20 and you can tell he doesn’t believe a word out of her mouth.

TL;DR

Hunter B-15 took Sylvie back to Roxxcart to find out more about the memories she has after being enchanted. She’s ready to take down the TVA, too.

Mobius swapped TemPads with Renslayer when she wasn’t looking at knows C-20 remembers her whole life previous to the TVA–and Renslayer does, too.

Mobius tells Loki that he knows he was telling the truth about the TVA, and he wants to help Loki and Sylvie bring it down.

WOW moment 1: Renslayer stops Mobius in the hallway and PRUNES MOBIUS. She takes the variants up the elevator to stand before the Time-Keepers.

Hunter B-15 releases both variants from their collars.

Mother forking shirtballs.

A cosmic fight ensues. Sylvie vs Renslayer, Loki vs the Hunters. Sylvie throws her sword, lobs off the head of a Time-Keeper to find it’s a robot. So very Wizard of Oz-like.

Loki attempts to tells Sylvie about his feelings for her…it’s Loki, this is new territory.

WOW moment 2: Renslayer PRUNES LOKI from behind while he’s professing his love to Sylvie.

Sylvie isn’t playing and wants to know ALL ABOUT THE TVA from Renslayer.

Bruh, That Loki Post Credit Scene in Loki Episode 4

Welcome to Hel? Loki awakens to see four Loki variants staring down at him. Avengers Tower is in the background. It’s reminiscent of Battleworld created by the Beyonder in the comics.

Is this where all the pruned variants go?

Loki Episode 3 Breakdown & Easter Eggs

Episode 3 of Loki starts off with Sylvie using her enchantment powers to get C-20 to reveal the location of the Time Keepers. Sylvie opened a door to the TVA using the stolen TemPad and attempts to locate the Time Keepers.

Renslayer finds both Sylvie (Lady Loki) and Loki by the golden elevators and before she can do anything, Loki opens another door and he and Sylvie escape. Sorta. They end up on Lamentis-1, which is about to be destroyed. Either they can work together to survive or they will both die.

It wouldn’t be Loki vs Loki if they didn’t try to trick each other. They get into some mischief with a widow before using their powers to get on board a train to safety. After a heart to heart which revealed Loki’s sexual orientation, Sylvie rests, and Loki drinks. A lot.

We didn’t know we needed to hear Tom Hiddleston singing a song in this episode but it was exactly what we needed. This is the kind of content that can heal the world.

Unfortunately, his performance draws too many eyes. A fight breaks out and despite their impressive fighting skills, they lose. Loki and Sylvie make their way to the Ark, a ship that will take them off-planet to safety. Unfortunately, it is destroyed.

They are now stuck on Lamentis. We have some theories on how they will make it off. What are yours?

Loki Episode 1 Breakdown & Easter Eggs

The episode started off right where we left Loki, escaping the Avengers in 2012 using the Tesseract. He leaves NYC and lands in the Gobi Desert, Unfortunately, the people living there don’t seem to care who he is but the TVA does.

Hunter B 15 and her Minute Men appear and arrest Loki for crimes against the sacred timeline. They use an interesting weapon against him, the Time Twister, which has some comic book origins. At the TVA Loki watches an instructional video featuring Miss Minutes that catches us all up on who the TVA is and what they do.

Long story short the Time Keepers created the TVA to guard the timeline after they saved it from a multiverse war. Throw in a few comic book Easter eggs and even a Disney Parks one and it was a very interesting video.

Related: Loki Episode 1 Easter Eggs and Breakdown

The Avengers botched Time Heist and their time traveling, which Loki figured out by the way, is dismissed by Judge Renslayer as something that was suppose to happen. Easy way out on that one Marvel but we aren’t mad about it. Time Travel is hard. For comic fans if Renslayer’s name sounds familiar it’s because Ravonna Renslayer just happened to be Kang The Conqueror’s lady love. Kang is the villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp Quantumania. Is Renslayer sus? We have some thoughts.

Related: WhiskynSunshine’s Loki Review

In order to show Loki the TVA is real, he sees events in his life that haven’t happened yet. We are forced to live through his saddest moments (rude) and cry as he cries. Loki escapes, naturally, and discovers a drawer full of… wait for it… INFINITY STONES. Excuse me TVA. We have some questions. Why didn’t you help the Avengers? Black Widow and Gamora died for nothing? And Vision? Wanda is going to want to have a chat with you.

Related: WithAshleyandCo’s Loki Review

It ends with confirmation that our original theory about the Variant was true. They need Loki’s help because the dangerous Variant IS Loki. We can’t share about Episode 2 yet but trust us, it just gets even wilder from here.

S2E27: The Weekly Bugle Vol 26 Mortal Kombat, Shadow & Bone, & More

the weekly bugle vol 26 Mortal Kombat scorpion

Welcome back to the Geek Girls’ Universe for The Weekly Bugle Vol 26. This week we are talking about Russell Crowe as Zeus, Mortal Kombat, Shadow and Bone, and more.

The Weekly Bugle Vol 26

The Weekly Bugle Vol 26

Russell Crowe in Thor Love and Thunder

Not to be upstaged by Alfred Molina spilling secrets, Russell Crowe seemed to confirm he would be playing Zeus in the upcoming Thor Love and Thunder Movie. This shouldn’t be too big of a shock if you have been looking at fan theories but to have him share it was surprising.

If you don’t know Zeus in the comics is similar to his mythological counterpart. In this film, he is likely to be at war with the Asgardians, which happens in the comics. He and Odin eventually make peace, however, MCU Odin is dead. Zeus also has ties to the Eternals, which have their own upcoming film in the MCU. This connection could tie both films together.

Mortal Kombat Review

We might be critics but we like to pride ourselves on the fact we aren’t like others. Basically, we don’t set out to hate (or love) a movie simply because we think it will get us clicks or points.

the weekly bugle vol 26 Mortal Kombat scorpion

Will Mortal Kombat win an Oscar for Best Screenplay? Nope. Is that the point of this movie? Also nope. It’s a video game movie. If you’re looking for some carnage and flawless victories, this is your movie. The script isn’t the best, and no, there is no Mortal Kombat tournament, but they are trying to set up a series, so if you view it as one it makes more sense.

Shadow and Bone

One of us hasn’t watched it yet and the other has seen 2 episodes. But her daughter has binged the entire series twice. That takes dedication.

Shadow and Bone is hot right now on Netflix and for good reason. This best-selling book series has been brought to life. Shadow and Bone finds us in a war-torn world where lowly soldier and orphan Alina Starkov has just unleashed an extraordinary power that could be the key to setting her country free. With the monstrous threat of the Shadow Fold looming, Alina is torn from everything she knows to train as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha. But as she struggles to hone her power, she finds that allies and enemies can be one and the same and that nothing in this lavish world is what it seems. There are dangerous forces at play, including a crew of charismatic criminals, and it will take more than magic to survive.

Captain America 4

Marvel Studios is bringing back The Falcon and the Winter Soldier head writer Malcolm Spellman to write the screenplay for Captain America 4 which will feature Sam Wilson as Captain America.

After that ending of Falcon and Winter Soldier (we break the finale down right here) we cannot wait to see more of Sam as Cap and hopefully Bucky too.

We get into some other Dory moments.. or maybe Dug… Squirrel!! But we appreciate you going down those rabbit holes as always! Give a listen. You’ll never believe what Ben Barnes and Tim Rozon have in common.

Interview with Jon Levine

One of the standout moments in the new Loki trailer was when Loki ended up in the TVA’s version of the DMV. Only instead of waiting forever for your number to be called, you have to verify everything you’ve ever said. Absurd. Yikes.

In the room we see an adorable cat, that may or may not be a Flerken, and the paperwork clerk in charge of getting Loki to sign off on an inordinate amount of papers. That clerk is none other than Jon Levine.

We couldn’t wait to talk with Jon about his time on the Loki set. Naturally, we wanted all the details but we know how those pesky NDAs work. However, he shared what he could including what it was like working with the god of mischief himself. From what he told us, that scene is going to be awesome.

As with all our guests, we asked him about his favorite fandoms, characters, and movies, which included a little tangent about Taika Waititi because how can you not. Jon also talked about Cobra Kai, Flerkens, and a lot more.

The Weekly Bugle Vol 23

This past week we got a new look at Black Widow, Loki, plus the Space Jam 2 trailer. Bruce Campbell continued to tease a cameo in Doctor Strange 2 and we got confirmation about another Sam Raimi favorite.

And although we talked a bit about Sharon Carter and how she relates to the Power Broker in our Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 3 Breakdown, we decided we should go into a little more detail. However, we want to hear your opinions. Who do you think the Power Broker is?

Black Widow Final Trailer

the weekly bugle vol 23 black widow podcast

The new Black Widow trailer was released to celebrate the set-in-stone release date of July 9. Finally, Widow is coming. We think it will feel like seeing a Marvel movie for the first time because it has been so long!

Related: Who Is The Taskmaster?

Not only did Marvel share a peek at young Natasha and a young Red Guardian but they revealed the best look yet of Taskmaster. Taskmaster is a very interesting villain and will prove to be a massive challenge for Nat. Not to mention we know some other Widows are running around. Good thing she has her family by her side.

Seriously though, Budapest needs to feature here. Somewhere…

New Loki Trailer

Marvel dropped the new Loki trailer and in case you haven’t watched it do yourselves a favor and do that now.

Is that a Flerken we spy? Who knows but when we see a cat hanging out outside of Earth we automatically think Flerken. Loki is as charming as ever and clearly, has a thing or two up his sleeves. But you can TOTALLY trust him Mobius.

Bruce Campbell Cameo in Doctor Strange 2

A few months back Bruce Campbell tweeted about working on a movie in a city with some people and that it was great. The image he shared was of London where Doctor Strange 2 just happened to be filming. 

Then on April 1st (yes April Fools), he tweeted a piece of the supposed script where his character, the disheveled man speaks to Dr. Strange. He has been known to troll fans before, like last April when he teased a return of Brisco County Jr. However, with his other tweet and the fact Sam Raimi is working on this film…perhaps Bruce might actually be in the movie.

Another Sam Raimi connection also may feature in the film. The Oldsmobile Delta first appeared in the Evil Dead along with other films of his such as Drag Me to Hell, The Gift, and naturally the Spider-Man trilogy. Raimi somewhat confirmed the car would be in Doctor Strange as well saying “It is currently considering a small cameo. It Auto!”

Space Jam The New Legacy Trailer

Welcome to the Jam! The new Space Jam trailer dropped, and we had some thoughts. As fans of the original, this one looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. At the end of the day, Zendaya (who is voicing Lola Bunny) better get to sing! We need another anthem like I Believe I Can Fly but you know sung by someone who isn’t that one person.

Last week, we broke down episode 2 of Falcon and Winter Soldier, and episode 3, “Power Broker” is now streaming on Disney+. It gave us a lot of callbacks to previous MCU films, comics, and the team-up we didn’t know we needed. Yes, that’s right Zemo is now teaming up with our guys to find out the deal behind the super-soldier serum.

Of course, we have some new theories about where this series might be headed and what future MCU properties it ties into.

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 3 Breakdown

The show starts off with a commercial commending the virtues of the Global Repatriation Council, but as we know from experience, these types of organizations are rarely as saintly as they appear. Walker and Hoskins are attempting to capture Karli Morgenthau and failing. In another nod to #NotMyCap, Walker loses it on a prisoner yelling in his face screaming, “Do you know who I am?” Bless this random guy because he says what we are all thinking. “Yes. I do. And I don’t care.” It’s true, we don’t care about you. Moving on.

Bucky manages to break Zemo out of a high max security facility a la Ocean’s 11 style. Zemo reveals that he is wealthy, ahem, he is a Baron in case you don’t read the comics like Sam.

In Madripoor, a frequent haunt in the X-Men comics we see nods to that franchise and get a few more comic Easter eggs including Sam’s disguise as the Smiling Tiger. That disguise has ties to a certain upcoming MCU property… just saying. In the city, they search for the doctor responsible for the creation of the new super serum. Before they can find him, trouble comes round, because of course, it does.

Sharon Carter returns to help save their butts. She is more cynical than ever and for good reason. They manage to find Dr. Nagel and learn that the Flag Smashers have stolen all the Super Soldier Serum he was able to create.

A new lead has the three co-workers traveling to Riga where Bucky leaves Sam and Zemo to take a walk. Turns out he has called in a friend who you may recognize and who definitely wants Zemo in jail.

The episode is called Power Broker, yet he is never revealed. Some theories point to Sharon being the Power Broker, perhaps it is Zemo, or maybe it’s someone we haven’t seen in a while. What do you think?

Falcon and Winter Soldier Episode 2 Breakdown

The show begins with John Walker reliving his glory days at his old high school before taking the field to show off his new title of Captain America. His partner Hoskins who reveals his alias later as Battlestar is also there.

Unlike Steve who hated the pomp and circumstance that surrounded his forced stage shows as Captain America, Walker is reveling in them, taking selfies, signing autographs like a gloried comic con newb. Sam and Bucky watch as this clown parades around with the shield.

They leave to confront the Flag Smashers in Germany where after a battle, Bucky realizes exactly what they are dealing with. Like we mentioned last week these people are strong and now we know why.

This episode did a few things. One, it made us hate John Walker more. Two, it revealed how the Flag Smashers are so powerful. Three, it tackled race in such a poignant and honest way. Four, it made us even more hyped for next week.

John Walker and his buddy Hoskins both have ties to the criminal organization the Power Brokers. The Power Brokers are after the Flag Smashers for stealing what belongs to them, which would be the super-soldier serum that they developed.

Related: Best Quotes from The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

We also met Isaiah Bradley, the black Captain America, this week. In the comics and on the show it seems, Isaiah was mercilessly experimented on by both the government and Hydra. Sam also dealt with discrimination for simply being a black man on a street in Maryland.

Our favorite therapist was back and forced our two unlikely friends into a couples’ therapy session. What followed was the most hilarious moment of the show while also being a very heartfelt, tender one as well. After they have a staring contest the heart of their problem is revealed which as often happens in therapy brings them closer together.

Hey friends! Welcome back to The Weekly Bugle Vol 8.

The Believer saw fan favorite Migs Mayfield and Mando teaming up to gain the info needed to track down Moff Gideon. Things never go as planned though and improvising is a must. Poor Mando even breaks the creed all for the love of Baby Yoda.

We, too, would also break sacred oaths to save the baby, tbh.

This episode saw some callbacks to Rogue One and a hilarious Office Space quote. It ends with Mando telling Gideon in a hologram that he’s coming for the kid and Moff has no idea what he is up against. All we can imagine is Din is assembling the Star Wars Avengers to get Grogu back.

Loki Trailer

Disney Investor Day came and it was like the holidays came early for us geeks. You get a trailer, you get a trailer, you get a trailer! One of the most highly anticipated shows coming to Disney Plus is Loki and we finally have more than a seconds glimpse at our favorite god of mischief.

It started out simple enough, 2012 Loki in Avengers Endgame stealing the tesseract and going about his business. Typical Loki. Then we see he has been captured by the TVA. The Time Variance Authority, try to govern a significant number of realities in the multiverse.

Blink and you might miss it but someone who looks an awful lot like Natasha aka Black Widow is seen sitting on a rock. We all know Loki can shape-shift and he’s not the only one with that power, but who knows, maybe he ends up in the past or in the future with Nat.

Throughout the trailer we see different versions of Loki and a mysterious hooded figure. We have some thoughts as to who that might be. It ends with a callback to the 2016 comic series Vote Loki.

Falcon and The Winter Soldier Trailer

After the Disney+ TV spot that seemed forever ago we finally got to see what Sam and Bucky are getting into in the new series.

The banter, the side-eye, and respect is still there. Classic Marvel humor check, killer action check, Bucky Barnes and Same looking good double-check. They are chasing after Flag-Smasher (aka one of the worst villain names ever) and might even have to team up with Zemo to take her down.

It appears based on this trailer Stark Industries is still funding superhero adventures, US Agent is definitely a bad guy (no shocker there), and Isaiah Bradley, the first black Captain America from the 2003 comic miniseries Truth: Red, White, and Black might also be shown or at the very least mentioned.

WandaVision Trailer

WandaVision’s second trailer answered some questions while creating others. And after that shot of the mysterious beekeeper and radio message, we don’t think it is Wanda who is controlling the chaos and trapping everyone in suburban hell.

Some other interesting takeaways were further confirmation Agnes is indeed Agatha Harkness, Monica Rambeau is also trapped in the neighborhood, and Wanda’s children’s superpowers will be featured. The butterfly effect COULD have been Wanda’s doing but most likely was Wiccan.

We are a little over a month away from the premiere of WandaVision and we cannot wait. Let Marvel Phase 4 begin!

Marvel’s What If?

The weekly bugle vol 8 didn’t focus too much on this one because honestly we could’ve kept talking and talking and talking about all the marvel news. However, we are super excited about this one.

Which What If? story are you looking forward to the most?

Spider-Man 3 Casting News

Can we even keep track at this point who is returning?? Even Tom Holland is getting in on the jokes, laughing at rumors of Mark Hamill reprising his role as Luke Skywalker in the film.

Charlie Cox will return as Daredevil which makes us happy. Several times our #MarvelMondays Twitter chats have talked about this possibility. Peter needs a lawyer, Matt is a lawyer, Charlie Cox was awesome on the show–win-win.

the weekly bugle vol 8

The other exciting announcement is that Alfred Molina will be back as Doc Ock. He was last seen in the Maguire led films of the early 2000s.  Kirsten Dunst and Andrew Garfield are reportedly reprising roles with Maguire is still in talks with Marvel/Sony.

Sources say MOST of these returning characters will be quick fan service and that it’s still Holland’s movie, which is relief. If this was any other studio other than Marvel Studios handling this many characters in a film we would be worried.

Warner Bros Streaming Plans For 2021 Not Everyone Is Happy

Last week we talked about Warner Bros making the move to release everything in 2021 on HBO Max. At the time, one studio–Legendary–was not happy. Turns out everyone is kinda pissed off at WB. And it is a whole mess.

True Blood Reboot

In this week’s what is making a comeback whether it needs to or not is True Blood. Variety has confirmed a reboot is in the early stages at HBO. And again we want to know why?

Thor’s Phase 4 Arc

According to an opinion piece from Screenrant and chatter online, fans have been debating what Thor’s phase 4 arc should be. Some argue that Thor should become the leader of The Avengers while others are leaning towards Captain Marvel.

Thor Phase 4

There are pros and cons to Thor taking the lead and while it makes sense in his story, it also doesn’t. The man, er God, has spent a lot of time and dialogue not being a ruler. But as long as it doesn’t mean Natalie Portman’s Jane takes over we are okay with whatever direction Taika and the MCU is taking Thor.

Shang-Chi Filming Wrapped 

Shang-Chi and The Eternals are two films we heard announced, got little tidbits for, and then thanks to 2020 it has been radio silence ever since. However, Shang-Chi has wrapped on filming which has everyone speculating when we could see Simu make his debut in costume.

Our theory:

Shang-Chi Teaser in January with a full trailer to come with Black Widow. That of course is if everything stays the course and we have no further derailments to our precious timeline.

WandaVision

Although we have been wandering the desert of no Marvel, there is an oasis on the horizon. WandaVision is coming this December and the trailer offered so many clues as to what maybe coming down the line for Phase 4.

Including a possible hint at the future of a character in Falcon and The Winter Soldier.

Falcon and The Winter Soldier: US Agent will be called Captain America 

Minor spoiler for those who have no read the comics or watched any interviews, US Agent will be using the title Captain America at the start of Falcon and The Winter Soldier. In the comics Wyatt takes the mantle when the government deemed Fury to old and Sam Wilson not the right color. Wyatt was already a government agent and begrudgingly took over as Cap for awhile.

US Agent Falcon and The Winter Soldier

US Agent eventually joins up with other superhero teams including the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers. Which is interesting due to the Dark Avengers Easter egg in the WandaVision trailer.

“LITTLE BABY JUNE’S FIRST WORD TICKLES MOTHER”

This is the headline on the newspaper Vision is holding. In the comic books  June Covington is a part of the Dark Avengers, using the alias Scarlet Witch. 

If you’re curious to see more of Ashley’s trailer breakdown go here:

Uncharted

Finally, the Uncharted film is being made and Tom Holland shared a photo of him as Drake on set. We haven’t played the game before but all video game adaptations make us nervous.

The problem with video game adaptations is they are either excellent or garbage. We are hoping for the former for Tom. One thing that is never garbage? Tom Holland.

Tom Holland Uncharted
