The Loki series has successfully explored the emotional connection between Loki and Sylvie. The audience was emotionally invested in their connection; how they opened up to each other and developed a rapport between them contributed to the overall depth and complexity of the show.

Even in the episode’s edited version, Loki and Sylvie share heartfelt moments, believing it to be their last before the two-time door opens and separates them. But the recent clip shows Loki holding a knife to Sylvie’s throat, which undermines the growth that has been witnessed and questions the whole narrative of the show.

According to fans’ responses, the scene isn’t that convincing, and they expressed their gladness in removing the scene.

Therefore, removing the potential scenes was a wise approach from the Marvel Studio, likely contributing to the overall improvement of the series. While the first deleted scene is public, the forthcoming physical release will include the deleted scenes of Thor’s Throg.

The Loki season 1 physical version is set to hit shelves on September 26, and the season 2 is scheduled to stream on Disney Plus from October 5.
