The longer I sit with this Loki finale, the more it grows on me. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first. There was so much to process.
It’s an overall promising start for a new series. Loki doesn’t look or sound like anything else on TV right now, streaming or otherwise, and the series is all the better for it.
So it turns out that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is ultimately a story about the use of might for right, and who gets to decide the meaning of either.
In the penultimate episode of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, titled “Truth,” we find out that the truth will set you free, if you can get past it pissing you off.
This episode lays everything out on the table, with a gripping story about how great power can corrupt greatly, at any turn, revealing the strengths and vulnerabilities of each character.
The exposition is very heavy in this one, because it has to be—there are only three episodes (!) left. It’s worth it just to see Zemo dancing, though.
