It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

I would also accept Kid Loki and/or Classic Loki.

Also known as "Lokigator." One of the variants from Loki season 1.

There are different versions of Loki (the character), referred to in-universe as "variants." (The simple, though not 100% accurate, explanation is that it's a multiverse thing.) And in the show, one of the variants was an alligator version of Loki rather than a human.

Thank you for the Loki explainer. We watched the 1st episode, but then got distracted and haven't picked it back up. I think we're a little Marvelled out, right now.

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.
