Chamberlain and Chance
No, you are not stuck in a time loop. This is a new episode and Chamberlain is still playing Assassins' Creed Valhalla. He is still killing the English in droves but now he is playing matchmaker and fending off the unwelcome advances of his brother's wife. Chance is also not stuck in a loop, he is just really enjoying Deathloop. It's not quite Dishonored but it is still a very good time. Good enough to be played again. And again. And Alex is not here because he simply had a better offer, one that no one in a sane mind would pass up.
