Synopsis for "Sunlight and Shadows"

Thor finds Asgard in ruins, overrun by Trolls and Ice Giants fighting for control of the city. Going on, he finds the human Aesir enslaved along with Doctor Strange. Thor frees them and tells Thor that the Loki he saw was really a robot controlled by the Mad Thinker, whose brain was fried when they were transported to Wagnerland. Elsewhere, the Enchantress has been captured by the Ice Giants and is helping them to try and take Asgard. Inside the city, Annie helps Silvia escape from the prison where she was being held, and Kim fights off some Ice Giants. They all make their separate ways to the palace, where Strange tells Thor that since Yggdrasil believes that there are no more gods, it cast them all down to Earth as mortals. At the palace, Thor finds the sword embedded in the wall. Thor grabs the sword, which turns to dust, and his full power is restored. Thor sends the Ice Giants running, and he and Strange both agree that they must return to Earth, sensing something more menacing there.
