However, don’t worry about being a completeist. Below I have tried to highlight a few highlights. Here’s a spoiler-free look Some of referrals, callbacks, and Easter eggs that you may have missed from Lokifirst episode. I don’t swear by a pile of Time Variance Authority manuals that they are all intentional, but they are fun to think about anyway.
