Alternatively, another viewer argued: “I don’t get why everyone is up in arms about the kiss.
“1) It’s not incest. 2) It was literally a distraction for Sylvie. That makes it all the more painful for Loki. 3) Loki is showing genuine emotion.”
For now, it isn’t clear if Sylvie has genuine feelings for her male variant, although their touching moment in the previous episode certainly suggests this could be the case.
Reactions to the episode were still positive overall, especially following the introduction of Jonathan Major’s as Marvel’s new baddie, He Who Remains aka Kang the Conqueror.
Loki season 1 is available to stream on Disney+.
