In hopes of finding civilization, people, answers, the group journeys to the city whose lights they’ve been able to see from miles away. But group dynamics can be just as hard to navigate as a new city – especially when death and dragons are involved.

Oh, that might be the vaguest episode blurb so far! So I'll be more explicit - this ReMade episode brings us back to Loki's story, which is about as crushing as we were led to expect. In the present, Loki explores the strange city, giving appropriate names to things that look a lot like dragons. 

Accompanying him is Holden, who actually becomes a more interesting character when we get to see him interacting with anyone who isn't Seyah, about things that aren't Seyah. It's refreshing.

This is one of my favourite episodes so far! Probably because I just really like creepy, abandoned cities.  This one doesn't immediately feel like a set (like where Inez and Teddy came from), but there's definitely a sense that we can't take anything for granted, just yet.  My brain keeps coming up with wacky explanations for the whole situation, but none that matches all of the known facts. 

Like, when Inez thought she figured out that everyone died at the same time, did anyone take Umta into account? Or are there more secrets regarding her background too, perhaps?

We're getting close to the end now, and I'm definitely feeling the tension!
