Dive into the mind-bending conclusion of Loki Season 2 as time-traveling chaos unravels. Discover the unexpected twists and turns in this epic showdown at the end of time.
Prepare for a wild ride because the grand finale of Loki Season 2 is a total rollercoaster.
In Episode 5, there were still so many unanswered questions, with Tom Hiddleston’s Loki mastering his time-travel abilities and revisiting the moment right before Victor Timely’s untimely demise.
As Episode 6 unfolds, Loki watches Victor’s unfortunate fate repeat itself, wondering what went wrong. O.B. informs him they weren’t fast enough, leading Loki to believe that speed is the key.
Loki continuously returns to that crucial moment, attempting to speed up the process, but no matter how fast they move, Victor meets a gruesome end each time. Eventually, Loki realizes the solution isn’t speed but going back to an earlier moment.
He time-slips to the point when Victor and O.B. first meet, but O.B. is hesitant because they haven’t brainstormed with Victor yet. Despite Loki’s best efforts, he’s not an expert in theoretical physics.
After learning it would take decades or even centuries to absorb O.B.’s knowledge, Loki invests centuries in mastering theoretical physics. He returns with a plan, enabling Victor to successfully launch the multiplier into the temporal loom.
However, their victory is short-lived, as the loom overloads due to branching timelines. Sylvie realizes this was inevitable when timelines started diverging.
This realization prompts Loki to return to his and Sylvie’s encounter with He Who Remains at the end of time. He attempts to convince Sylvie not to kill him, but she remains resolute.
After numerous attempts, He Who Remains pauses time and reveals he knew this moment was inevitable. He unpauses Sylvie, who pauses her again, indicating Loki’s newfound control over time.
He Who Remains explains that the loom is a failsafe, and the Sacred Timeline will always remain, but the TVA will be collateral damage. Loki refuses to accept this fate.
Loki time-slips back to the very beginning, where he’s being interrogated by Agent Mobius. They discuss the burden of making life-and-death choices, and Mobius recalls a challenging decision he had to make in the past.
Loki returns to A.G. Doug’s workshop and discusses the situation with Sylvie. She realizes Loki’s plan to kill her to preserve He Who Remains and warns about the consequences.
Loki executes his plan by destroying the temporal loom and gathers the dying branches, bringing them to the end of time. He takes a seat on the citadel’s throne and becomes the new keeper of time.
The TVA is up and running with new timelines coexisting, resembling the World Tree. Mobius is tracking He Who Remains variants, and he decides to return to his timeline. Sylvie and Mobius have an emotional farewell.
O.B. is in the 19th century, and Renslayer wakes up in the presence of Alioth. The episode ends with the camera panning through countless timeline branches, showing Loki’s face, hinting at his contentment with the solution.
