Non-Spoiler Review

It’s the end of the world as we know it

Last weeks episode seemed to drag its feet through what felt like a very self-contained narrative, leaving our variant protagonists stranded, doomed to their fate on the debris battered Lamentis.

The Nexus Event was written by Waldrons fellow Rick & Morty/Community alumni, Eric Martin and was again directed by Kate Herron. We see a return of many of the things we are used to in the show by now, a perfectly complementary soundtrack, attempts of sarcasm and whit at any given moment from Hiddleston, and most importantly - two people sitting at a desk having a conversation.

The show so far has done a good job of picking apart the titular Loki, but mainly through long form conversation varying in degrees of engagement. Its hard not to assume this is a result of the pandemic affecting production after seeing reports of the same for The Falcon and The Winter Solider and Wandavision.

Picking up the pace

This episode successfully fills in some of the blanks last week’s episode failed to do and although this addition has shown us a lot of the things we have seen before in the show, there are still many points of discussion around this episode that are difficult to tip toe around without spoiling anything.

The Nexus Event manages to give us what last weeks Lamentis left us waiting for, pushing the shows trajectory back up over the hill with more engaging dialogue, a good look at some new faces and more importantly, a reason to strap in for the final few episodes.
