What is going on with Power Automate? It keeps breaking my compose.

What I'm trying to do is do a simple compose. And then try to do a compose on it again. This was originally set up so I could get around the "@odata.type" issue but now it's acting very strange. 

So I have this and all I really expect is that the compose below also shows "@odata.type" and it seems to be fine when I save.

But when I run the Flow, it gives me an error and says "Unable to process template language expressions in action 'Compose_4' inputs at line '1' and column '12219': 'The template language expression 'outputs('Compose_odata.type')?['$']' cannot be evaluated because property '$' cannot be selected."


And when I leave my Flow and come back it now looks like this:

And I don't get it. It's like the Flow is breaking itself. It goes from outputs('Compose_odata.type') to outputs('Compose_odata.type')?['$'] for no reason. Is Flow having issues today? I don't understand this. I just want to compose "@odata.type" because putting it directly into the body of an http requests gets me errors.
