Looking like Marvel Studios will be three for three with this one.

They don't miss.

But seriously, can someone help me.
I understand the pivotal part it plays to Loki's psyche to see infinite stones, multiple copies no less, just sitting in a drawer like paper weights. But why are there so many copies? Is it because they have been pulled out of the timeline at various points over and over again to restore the timeline? For my daughter and I, the impact of seeing infinity stones just sitting there like candy wrappers definitely hit home. The impact and realization was like a ton of bricks hitting the deck. Probably the biggest "wow" moment for us through all 3 series so far. Powerfully, masterfully done. I get the significance of it, just not the how of it.

so Loki is about the pursuit of power - at this point the Stones are about the most powerful thing Loki has ever seen. to see them used as paperweights by the TVA shows that their power is WAY beyond the stones and thus he is way way way less powerful than he thought (remember this is also 20 or so minutes after Hulk ragdolled him - he was dealing with limited psychic defensiveness as it was
also, while they don't say it - i assumed the stones were pulled from various timelimes. aside from the tesseract, all stones are still in 'our' timeline

I haven't gotten around to this one yet, but I'm hopeful. Does it look like it will be better than WV and FAWS?
i hesitate to compare the 3 - all are asked to do different things and WV and FAWS have additional cultural...responsibilities (for lack of a better word) that Loki does not

I like the word goals more than responsibilities. Either works tho.

I think it will easily be better but I was looking forward to this one the most out of any of the shows and movies.
I totally can see this as a clear bridge to Dr. Strange and Multiverse of Madness. The timeline explanation and what the TVA does really leans into that whole theme. I'm curious to see how it all plays out. And I like how they're threading the old and new. Cool stuff imo. I got a kick out of seeing the Endgame "snafu" causing Loki to escape with the Teserract only to get snagged by the TVA and become a Variant.

This show has so much potential! I'm already anxious to see episode 2, lol.
