Loki - Lamentis

After a brief stop at the TVA, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and his better looking variant self going by the name of Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) find themselves trapped on a world about to be destroyed in one of the apocalypses the female Loki had saved on her TemPad. "Lamentis," named after the doomed planet which the two Lokis have no way of escaping, offers an odd couple pairing as we see the various ways the pair are similar yet different from one another as they try one desperate plan after another to escape their fate. And in a reveal that shocks Loki, he learns that everyone (not just himself) who works for the TVA is a time variant (although most seem completely oblivious to the truth). "Lamentis" isn't the best episode of the series yet, but it does offer its share of fun moments involving Loki spending a little time with themselves. With the destruction of the world immenent, it's likely the series will shake things up yet again offering something new for its fourth episode.
