Loki's fifth episode is titled "Journey into Mystery," which is a tip to the ways it draws on the themes and ideas of classic works about, well, journeys into mystery! (Yes, it's also the name of the comic where Loki and Thor first appeared, but it's not *just* that!)

On Storycast, Maeve Adams and Amanda Marcotte explore how this episode and the series itself ties into the Divine Comedy, the Wizard of Oz, and Alice in Wonderland. But it doesn't just reference their ideas, it also updates them—particularly in regards to what it means to love someone. 

Grab your horned helm and join us beyond the veil of time for a ride on the wild side of literature and Loki!
