Storycast: Loki Episode 3 Themes and Types of Love

Maybe there's more than one way to fall for someone.


They say you can't truly love someone else until you love yourself. But, uh, what if you combine those into one relationship? 

The third episode of Loki is an intimate examination of love, but not in any traditional way. Like Loki and Sylvie, it's subversive, chaotic, and interested in testing the boundaries of what's possible. 

It's also an episode that drives home the old adage that no plan survives first contact with the enemy, which happens to Loki and Sylvie at every turn, but also almost everyone else we meet (or watch blow up). 

Join Amanda Marcotte, Maeve Adams, and Marc Faletti for a judgment-free romp through the themes of "Lamentis" and what it means to love.
