Thanos-copter is MCU canon!

I've been holding out for this show to get 15% weirder and I was not disappointed. This was the most fun and anarchic episode. The romantic moments between Loki and Sylvie seemed to drag on a bit though. And as in the Lamentis episode, it seemed the disasters from the outside abated just in time for our heroes to have their quiet moments.

It seems there's something almost hypnotic about having a completely outrageous character like Alligator Loki, once you start to accept something like that instead of making the whole show seem ridiculous, accepting all the other fantastic elements seems easy by comparison.

Last Stand of Old Man Loki was well done.

Oh, and Mobius in the pizza delivery car, while leaving maddening gaps for those who want some kind of plot continuity instead of the theater of the absurd we got, seems somehow fitting. His role was to ground in normality the high-flying claims of the variant Asgardian prince.

On the slow dive into the Loki lair, I couldn't identify the jumping figure under Mjolnir. (I can't watch it on a large screen at the moment, I'm stuck under a cat.)
The "pleasant music" in the Loki lair was a 1995 lounge cover of Wonderwall, by The Mike Flowers Pops. It might only be notable to me, as I heard it *before* the Oasis version.
The ship that dropped in was the USS Eldridge, which was cloaked in the Philadelphia Experiment story.
There's nothing extra after the credits.

Yes, that was a frog Thor. The jar has T365 written on it. I suppose Erik Voss of New Rockstars is right now pouring through his comic collection to find the meaning behind the number T365 :-)

Sylvie, when she first arrives in the void and flees the cloud monster, does an enchantment and she seems to have a vision of the castle that lays beyond at the end of the episode.

I like the idea that the Multiverse lets Marvel have all existing Marvel Universe continuities to be true, meaning they could have fun throwing in a ton of Easter eggs to this episode.
The Stark tower had QENG on.
There was the wreckage of a Focke-Wulf Triebflügel plane which the Red Skull used in Captain America: The First Avenger.
There's a Polybius arcade cabinet in the Loki lair.

Random observations:

Classic Loki, chilling in his shared lair, drinking the finest wines known to humanity.
And Kid Loki, chilling in his shared lair, drinking a juice box. :)

• For those who want a better look, animated GIF of Throg's scene

• The fact that the Void Lokis are perfectly fine with Alligator Loki, but a female variant "sounds terrifying" rather undercuts the supposed normalization of Loki's gender-fluidity.

• On the positive side, we did get several scenes passing Bechdel, including the WoC-only scene between Renslayer and B-15

"I betrayed everyone who ever loved me."
who else expected them to follow that revelation with fervent denials of any such feelings?

• Finally, how about that music? If there ever was a time for Wagnerian flourishes...

Classic Loki despising daggers and Kid King Loki giving our Loki a flaming sword makes me wonder if this is his new weapon. More heroic.

Speaking of Kid Loki I do want to know how/why he killed (Kid?) Thor. Accident? He doesn't seem to revel in evilness.

I like our Loki having to dodge through a battle of his other, ignoble and scheming selves, all like "Wow, you people are fucked up."

The sacred timeline would insist that he kill Baldur rather than Thor, or at least trick a blind archer into killing him.

Incidentally - it struck me that if Alligator Loki's Nexus Event was eating the wrong neighbour's cat, then there are an unspecified number of Alligator Lokis who eat the appropriate cat, so there's still some kind of multiverse, even under the TVA? I realise, at this point, the whole TVA/Sacred Timeline thing is to be considered hooie, but still.

Loved this episode a lot. This series shines when characters are sparring verbally and the Lokis just chilling in their bowling alley lair was another example. I also loved the blanket sequence but I get why some folks hated it.

Throg, the Thanos Copter, and the USS Eldridge. They’re accelerating the weirdness and I am here for it. Listing of some other details.

Also the music in this show continues to be excellent. The first part of the soundtrack dropped last week, the volume with episodes 4-6 is out later this month.

I kind of want this episode to be called "Sophie Vs. The Black Cloud."

While I don't think this uh, Sophie/Loki relationship has had enough time to bake into love or whatever, the blanket scene was cute.

Continue to be all "....alligator?...." but it's funny.

Aw, I rather liked Old Retiree Loki.

Did enjoy Mobius in a pizza truck. Pizza truck?

Not really. It helps if you have watched the Loki relevant MCU movies but you can understand the episode just fine if you have watched the previous episodes. Marvel is really good at catering to both the Marvel deep-dive fan and the casual MCU watcher.

Yes, learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all.

Thorzdad - I don't think so - what's going on is generally either explained or obvious. There's a bunch of Lokis, that's all you need to know. That one of them comes from the 1960s Kirby version of Thor is something that it's amusing to know about, but doesn't spoil the story.

Sylvie is so different from the other Lokis not just because she's a woman, but also because she's the only one who grew up away from Asgard. I wonder if that's the more important difference - Asgard requires Loki to be what he is, it's not an inherent failing.

I kinda feel like there hasn't been enough buildup or time for it to be Twue Wuv with Loki and Sylvie yet and they do not appear to be insta-love personalities who trust easily, and she doesn't seem that into the idea. I think Loki is intrigued by the whole idea, but Twue Wuv as a plot motivator here seems too soon for the parties involved.

I'm not against the idea, it makes me laugh like Mobius about it, but it isn't earned yet. Though the blanket bit was cute.

Why do people seem icky about a Loki-Sylvie romantic relationship? I kind of dig it.

Imagine a pair of twins separated at birth and raised completely differently. They encounter each other as adults and fall in love. The strength (or possible lack) of an incest taboo revulsion reaction that elicits probably maps pretty well to whether a person feels icky about Loki-Sylvie feeling romantic rather than familial love.

I'm more bothered by Sylvie coming to be another case of the Smurfette principle in action. We get "gender: fluid" on Loki's paperwork, but as far as what we see on the screen he is 100% cismale, all cis all the time. Exactly one out of potentially infinite variations presents as female and it's notable to all the versions of Loki that hear about it. Not one of them responds to being asked if they've seen a female Loki with "myself, in the mirror, from time to time" the way we got "a bit of both" to confirm Loki's bisexuality. Compare to:
Instead, we get:
TVA Loki: Have any of you met a woman Variant of us?
Classic Loki: Sounds terrifying.
(Lokis agreeing)
Seriously, an alligator variant is treated as less weird than a female-presenting variant -- how is that "fluid" in any way? I'm as chuffed as anyone that we got bisexual representation, but I wish it hadn't come at the cost of throwing genderfluid representation under the bus.

I will say, based on the promo shots alone, I was really hoping Electioneering Loki was “our” Loki, having gained leadership of the Loki discard pile.

The thing is, Loki and Sylvie aren't twins, they're variants of the same person. I don't think many people would say "Ew, incest" if a character traveled through time and had sex with themselves, or had sex with a clone duplicate. It's interesting how many people have an adverse reaction to Loki/Sylvie.

His parents were variants of her parents. Their parents would recognize each other as "themselves" from other timelines. People with the same parents are siblings. QED.

Loki and Sylvie do not have anything like a sibling relationship and I'm confused by people insisting they do. They're not siblings and their relationship is nothing like say, T'challa and Shuri's or even Loki and Thor's.

It would not weird me out, it’s very Loki, falling for itself.

They’re not siblings. More like clones.

If these Lokis are from separate time dimensions and not branches off a single one, they don't have any direct genetic relation at all to their variants, making any relations between them non-incestuous. The existence of non-white male Loki variants suggests that this is so - if they come from branches off the 'prime' timeline, the time 'branch' that created alligator Loki must have happened well before the TVA brought him in for eating the wrong cat and the TVA isn't supposed to tolerate branches from the ideal timeline.

Alligator Loki must have had an alligator Laufey dad. This means that, since alligator Loki and regular Loki clearly cannot be genetically related, Sylvie and regular Loki cannot be genetically related.

This also means that Loki, upon being shown the multitude of other forms of Loki by Mobius way back at the start, should have realized they story being fed to him doesn't make sense.

I can separate fact from fiction so it wouldn't bother me. Plus it's not like the comics haven't gone there before - look at Wanda and Pietro.

But Shuri is a different person than T'challa so I have no idea how that's the same as Loki and Sylvie being involved.

I feel like trying to reason this out is not going to go anywhere because this is very much an emotional thing, but yeah, Sylvie/Loki just feels enough like incest that I can't get into it (but also getting involved with your own clone also feels gross to me).

Not just a juice box. Ecto Cooler.

Also wine from the Walmart clone that Sylvie boobytrapped. And a Kree ship.

I felt some strong connections to Lost with the running from the smoke monster and the title card.

And the music and portal at the end of the Loki Battle Royale hit some Rick & Morty notes.

But the best? Alligator Loki reaction shots.
Definitely my favorite episode.

I'm not squicked by it but it seemed kind of one-sided and confused -- Loki having admiration for and attraction to Sylvie but knowing he's not good at relationships and maybe the whole thing makes no damn sense but he still wanted to take the leap of faith and open up about it.

In this episode where they're companionably huddled together, it felt a little more like a better starting point.

I suspect though that Sylvie is either going to get killed, or wind up betraying Loki or being irrevocably separated in some way. I think despite Loki's character arc here he's still going to lose this one in some meaningful way, while still surviving.

I sure do love when Richard E Grant shows up in a scifi role.

Needed more female Lokis, for sure. I don't love the idea that it's her gender that makes her different rather than, you know, all the other things in her life history.

That certainly took a turn!

I suspect though that Sylvie is either going to get killed, or wind up betraying Loki or being irrevocably separated in some way. I think despite Loki's character arc here he's still going to lose this one in some meaningful way, while still surviving.

I suspect this also. The MCU is all about having women die to help men fulfill their potential, see Black Widow, Gamora, Karli Morgenthau. I can argue myself out of it though, this show is written by women who might try to set up that expectation and then invert it.

I'm more bothered by Sylvie coming to be another case of the Smurfette principle in action. We get "gender: fluid" on Loki's paperwork, but as far as what we see on the screen he is 100% cismale, all cis all the time.

Yes, agree! At first it seemed like the show was going to interrogate gender and perhaps being trans, now it seems like they need a woman Loki as a romantic interest and to dramatically sacrifice herself at the end.

I guess we'll see what happens next week.

My favorite thing (besides just seeing Richard E. Grant and Alligator Loki) was the little shout-out to this image and the Loki quote from the comics, when Grant's Loki sprawled on the couch and said "do what you want."

Aside from the charm of all those Lokis backstabbing each other, I was left a little cold. There's always a point in the MCU where there's a slogging action scene that a) doesn't look great b) is presumably really expensive and c) never ends. That's how I felt about the smoke monster. Less is more, guys. Also, if two Lokis were good at enchanting together, how great would three Lokis have been? (I'm saying to hell with Classic Loki's dramatic arc, I wish they'd kept him around!)

While I did have fun watching the episode, I certainly didn't get any sense of urgency or danger. I also didn't understand why Sylvie believed Ravonna enough to self prune. The whole void/Loki stuck at end of time could have just been a ruse for all she knows. Also did Sylvie try to enchant Ravonna at all... given that enchanting is her thing and that would have given her a lot of answers if it worked?

In Schitt's Creek, there was a moment where David and Stevie were like "I think we're ... friends?! I've never done that before. I have zero experience with this." I think that might be what's up with Loki and Sylvie.

"There was one time when we were children, [Loki] transformed himself into a snake, and he knows that I love snakes. So, I went to pick up the snake to admire it and he transformed back into himself and he was like, “Yeah, it’s me!” And he stabbed me. We were eight at the time."
Maybe kid Loki-variant happened to stab Thor a little too good that day?

So there's probably nothing all that weird or timeline-breaking for Loki to turn himself into an snake or an alligator. It was eating the wrong cat that screwed everything up. (Maybe Nancy Whitehead's cat, Mewnir? That would be right out.) It sucks that Loki being female isn't just another common variation so unremarkable that it doesn't break the sacred timeline all by itself.

I get why this show can't be all about Thor, but I think this character would feel more like Loki if he showed some sign of preoccupation with or feelings about his brother. Thor & Loki has been one of the best and most interesting relationships in the entire MCU. Old Loki's comment about missing his brother was a great moment. And it would make a huge difference being able to accept Sylvie as a version of Loki if we had any sense of what kind of relationship she had with Thor or Odin or Asgard.

Oh and I agree Richard E Grant saying "I missed my brother" that was great, he was totally the MVP this episode.

Lokis just chilling in their bowling alley lair


I feel I must correct the record on this. They enter the underground lair through a very solidly spinny lock metal door set in a concrete roof with stairs. This was a mid century esthetic/era private nuclear fallout shelter with a built in bowling alley.
Why did Sylvie ask Loki about Mobius' theory regarding Loki's nexus event.


I assumed it was because she realized if they could make a nexus event (friendship start) in an apocalyptic point where historically no nexus points could be made, that by joining together they could again. “Maybe we’re more powerful than we realize,” or something like that was her line near the end.
posted by tilde at 5:27 AM on July 8 [6 favorites]


Not sure whether it's been mentioned or not, but I've started wondering if Sylvie's learning she was adopted was her nexus event. If we believe Mobius' claim at the start, that far from his own belief that being a benevolent ruler is his glorious purpose, Loki's actual purpose is to lose, over and over, in order for others to reach their full potential, then it's necessary for Loki to feel the anger and disenfranchisement of only learning he's Laufey's son in adulthood, after having been lied to for ages.

Sylvie's learning of her adoption in childhood could have set her on a path away from the megalomania and sense of betrayal that characterised our Loki, and (in the opinion of the TVA) required her erasure. A secure, well-adujsted Loki has no place in the Timekeepers' Asgard.

Sylvie and Loki's blanket chat is allowing me to hold out a shred more hope for an aromantic relationship between these two (though Loki's gushing over her to the alts undercuts this a bit). To me, at least, these two feel more like one of those rare friendships between two people who really get one another on a fundamental level. I guess I feel like their connection -- or at least our Loki's connection to Sylvie -- is deeper than a kissy romance. More like their understanding and acceptance of each other will be what helps them both to heal and move forward.

Failing that, I could probably live with a reprisal of Tom Hiddleston's 'Only Lovers Left Alive' relationship, with Sophia di Martino standing in for Tilda Swinton.

Would melding the two into a reintegrated and stronger whole count? I can kind of see Sylvie as Loki's missing female side and the only way they can win is to truly become one.

Great episode, really inverted the usual story arc. Usually the penultimate episode would be the one with the Big Battle and the setup for the finale. Here we had a Big Battle but it was a farce, all the Loki variants squabbling and brawling. I did think the actual story dragged more than a bit but it was mostly redeemed by Richard E. Grant hamming it up and then summoning a truly beautiful and grand illusion.

The Loki/Sylvie romance is delicious for me because it's so transgressive. Incest? Narcissism? I was going to post something about the theory of genetic sexual attraction, but Wikipedia says that theory has no evidence supporting it. Not sure human psychology would apply to Asgardians anyway.

I think Loki/Sylvie is creepy because we know deep down Loki is a bad person. Like I'd never let a friend of mine date him, he's gonna break your heart. But these two Lokis are sort of on even footing there so maybe they could make it work? No, two raging narcissists who compulsive lying doesn't sound like a very good setup.

But that's the Loki in my head and the Lokis we're seeing on screen are not that. Instead both our Loki and Sylvie seem to have been fully redeemed and are just boring ordinary characters now. I'm with everyone above in thinking if Sylvie sacrifices herself so that Loki can be the hero and fulfill his destiny I'm gonna be really disappointed. This show has a chance to turn that kind of trope upside down, I hope they don't blow it.

I’d be curious to know a bit of the backstory of all the alt-Lokis. I definitely got the feeling that Hiddleston’s other Loki (the one who shows up in some promo shots) was meant to be a Trumplike figure, and headdress-guy on the left really seemed to be a reference to that guy from the 6 January uprising in the US Capitol. Probably just a coincidence that this episode aired one day after the six-month anniversary …

Loved the sly insertion of the USS Eldridge, which I'd not heard of, and led me down quite the Philadelphia Experiment rabbit-hole.

Having a classically trained Actor don a pajama suit with horns and bellow with theatrical flourish

I so want to see more of REG’s Classic Loki. Monologuing about his exile and wanting to see his brother again, hamming up his conjuring-of-Asgard scene, sipping the finest wines known to humanity, he was pitch-perfect in every moment. He had a glorious death but I almost hope it was some sort of trickery so we could see him again in future.

I also didn't understand why Sylvie believed Ravonna enough to self prune.

The only way out is through.
She’d run out of options. Even if she made it past Ravonna and her backup, all that's left is to go on the run again, having lost her one advantage of hiding out in apocalypses undetected. And so she decided to take the chance that there had been some truth in Ravonna’s lies, and even if not, she still gets to go out on her own terms.

Have we definitely been told what either Sylvie or Loki's nexus events are? Maybe it's their teaming together to take-down the TVA and whatever power created it? Seems like locking them up might be a good way to stop that happening, from the viewpoint of the power in-control.

One thing I thought about this morning: this reconfigures things back to practically the first scene of the series, for the second time really. But at least when we found out about pruning, it seemed near instantaneous deaths. But instead, those people in the desert, the little kid in France, presumably a bunch of Renfair attendees, were all dropped into a post-apocalyptic future to run for their lives from a demonic cloud, and those that survived to live out however long scrabbling for survival in the wreckage.

I think the erasing/resetting an entire timeline (as the hunters do when they catch a variant) is probably more permanent than the pruning of individuals. In the former, it will be as if that entire universe never happened. The pruning is merely tossing individuals into a pocket universe. The kid in France never existed, after the timeline was reset.
posted by Thorzdad at 9:54 AM on July 8


No, that's the whole point of the void and why there is all that debris there. It was explained by Renslayer and we even saw it, with the battleship from the pruned timeline being dropped in. Apparently whatever material objects and people that are in the radius that diverged from the 'sacred timeline' gets dumped there when they reset timelines. So certainly the desert people who spoke to Loki, presumably the whole cathedral and the kid, and whatever RenFest people that had were in the interaction chain there.
posted by tavella at 10:02 AM on July 8 [6 favorites]


I still think that there's some magnification effect from Loki and Sylvie working together (or, theoretically, any variants of the same person who are able to sync properly.) By the show's logic, a sharp timeline divergence in the middle of an apocalypse implies that something is going to happen that will either have enough impact to not get annihilated by the impending destruction or to avert some or all of that destruction entirely. My best guess, given that Loki was able to learn and boost enchanting by channeling Sylvie, is that Sylvie was about to learn and boost either Loki's telekinesis or his teleportation.

We saw the Eldridge show up with a full crew on board, so it seems likely that all sorts of collateral civilians must have turned up at the wreckage at the end of the universe during pruning. What are the odds all those buildings were empty when they got sent forward?

Maybe a REG Loki who survived and finally got their kingdom (per the exchange between Sylvie and Classic Loki) and realized they were destined to meet another Loki from another timeline who would take it from them, so created this as a series of ruses to protect their throne.

It would explain why they kept pruning so many Loki’s - any that were destined to survive or avoid their death at the hands of Thanos were subject to pruning.

In the spirit of the What If…? Promo that dropped, I’m assuming that there’s an “acceptable” series of timelines that don’t deviate too drastically that are allowed - so one with a female Loki who is killed by Thanos does exist - but maybe not ones that could risk deviating to the point of jeopardizing the Kingdom of the one true Loki. Or if not Loki, some paranoid powerful entity beyond the void.

By the show's logic, a sharp timeline divergence in the middle of an apocalypse implies that something is going to happen that will either have enough impact to not get annihilated by the impending destruction or to avert some or all of that destruction entirely.

This is how I saw it as well. The fact their divergence on Lamentis-1 not only was detectable by the TVA, but was a spike of a magnitude not previously seen (at least by Mobius) seemed to indicate that whatever was happening in the link between them would either divert the apocalypse itself or allow them to survive the event. Even if the TVA had somehow found them, absent that spike Loki and Sylvie likely would have been left to their deaths; the fact they were scooped up at the last moment means they needed to be caught, because their timelines would continue after the apocalypse.

I'd read complaints somewhere that the TVA grabbing them right before they were killed in an unsurvivable disaster was lazy, or a plot hole, but instead it seems to be saying that the two of them working together are exponentially more powerful, which supports their ability to enchant the smoke monster together this episode.

Sylvie pruning herself is an act of faith in herself. Loki survive, they survive, they always survive.

Unless Thanos snaps their neck, then they either die or hide and then survive.

At this point I feel like having anyone other than a Loki running the show would be an actual letdown even though it seems so obvious.

Here's the thing though; creating a bureaucratic agency like the TVA seems very un-Loki-like. It's not his/her style.

Manipulating someone else to run the TVA sounds very Loki like, especially if it’s about destroying other timelines that could become more powerful than this one.

Given Kang is already cast for another movie, I can't see it being him. Though I guess they could use one of his many variants and alternates? Still, Marvel likes these TV shows to be self-contained, so King Loki at the end of time seems the most likely option. I'd agree, though, that bureaucracy doesn't seem to be his thing. Maybe he had an ally?
posted by tavella at 1:53 PM on July 8


Except maybe it's Queen Sylvie at the end of time. The TVA was created by the Time Keepers who were real until Sylvie killed them and subverted the TVA's mission to keeping other Loki variants from messing with her future kingdom, which is not at The End of Time, but just farther in the future than the fake "End of Time" the TVA maintains as a barrier to keep the past from interfering with it.

Kang and Immortus rule ages further still into the future.

I'm on team TVA NOT run by a Loki. The conflict in this show has been between the normality and order preserving mundanity of the TVA and the anarchic inspired freedom of Loki (and the Lokis). It's implied that by keeping down the Lokis, the TVA has been stultifying the sacred timeline. I think that works great as a big theme, the danger of over-control, applicable to personal psychology or organizational psychology.

Then... who IS at the top? The Wizard of Oz parallel suggests something or someone mundane, as at the bottom of the organization, just another pencil-pusher. Maybe it is Ravonna, maybe there's a side to her we don't know. I've been imagining maybe it'll be CGI Stan Lee. Or a team of pruned variants who just inherited the structure from previous generations of pruned variants, and it evolved organically.

If Disney wants to run with same playbook as the first 10 years of the MCU, Kang ought to make a brief appearance in this and in Multiverse of Madness, and maybe in Eternals and/or Spider-Man: No Way Home before stepping out as the main villain in the next Ant-Man and the Wasp movie.

They might reference Kang, probably obliquely, but any actual teasers for him will be in the movies, going by the way Disney has handled things so far. So there has to be a real character for them to meet. Pillboi would be amusing, but to the extent the show has had a theme it's about Loki confronting himself.

I disagree on Loki confronting himself being the theme of the show. Loki changes through confronting his opposite, the TVA. And the TVA (such people as Mobius and Hunter B-15) changes through confronting Loki and the Variants.

If a Loki is ALREADY at the top of the heap, that begs a few questions.

Why would having our Loki and Sylvie supplant Loki On Top change anything?

If Loki On Top "outsourced" the control of the TVA to someone less anarchy-minded, that shifts away the focus on the TVA and its mentality of control by making it just another tool that the mischief maker on the top uses, even if it's contrary to his own psychology.

Having a Loki on top of the TVA doesn't make much organizational sense. Look how the US was run under mischief-maker Trump. Personnel decisions were made capriciously. We joked about how short Scaramucci intervals were.

Loki On Top would basically HIRE someone, because rule-following organizations aren't his thing, but who has this power and technology when we know Loki doesn't? How did Loki On Top get there in the first place?

Maybe keeping the Big Bad faceless would be best. Maybe the real issue isn't the "leaders" of the TVA, but that so many found it more comfortable to be followers. That the workers had their memories wiped--known to only a few like Ravonna--would make that a difficult sell.

AV Club review:
Maybe the core of a Loki is a desire to betray, as DeObia Oparei’s “Boastful Loki” does to hilarious results this week. (It turns out he isn’t the only Loki with a fondness for backstabbing). Or maybe it’s a desire to assert his dominance and rule, like Jack Veal’s Kid Loki, who murdered Thor and has now fashioned himself King of The Void—the space at the end of the Sacred Timeline where variants are sent when they’re pruned. Or maybe it’s just a certain touchy sensitivity, which Alligator Loki seems to have in spades.
But the purest distillation of Loki comes from Richard E. Grant’s Old Man Loki, who offers a glimpse of a path our Loki easily could’ve taken. Instead of trying to defeat Thanos in Infinity War, Old Man Loki faked his own death and set up shop on a deserted planet as the self-styled “God of the Outcasts.” But after centuries alone, he started to get lonely. He missed his brother, as he specifically notes in one heartbreaking moment. So he set out to reconnect with his family only to be pruned by the TVA. Maybe what makes a Loki a Loki is the fact that they’re doomed to never get what they want.

Old Man Loki and Kid Loki agree that the one thing that’s guaranteed to get a Loki pruned is when they try to fix themselves—to grow beyond their backstabbing ways and evolve as a person. But maybe that fundamental desire to change is what makes a Loki a Loki too. After all, Old Man Loki ultimately goes out in a blaze of selfless glory this week, setting aside his desire to survive for a greater glorious purpose.

Still, I’m trying my best to get onboard with the Loki/Sylvie pairing in the way the show clearly wants me too. And it certainly helps that Hiddleston was born to play an outwardly brash but secretly insecure romantic leading man. (Someone cast him as Cyrano stat.) Loki and Sylvie’s big, romantic blanket-sharing sequence offers another intriguing riff on what makes a Loki a Loki. Like a classic rom-com protagonist who keeps putting work above her love life, Loki’s dedication to his “glorious purpose” is really just an excuse to put off forming human connections. If he dedicates his life to striving for power, he can ignore the fact that he’s terrified of being alone and terrible at making friends. It’s a workaholic coping mechanism he seems to share with Sylvie, who’s also as committed to her “professional” life as she is stunted in her personal one.

Loki x Sylvie isn't lighting a burning fire in my soul like I usually get with ships but I will continue to carry the torch forward because I like the concept so much.

I still think he's confusing genuine love/trust for romance, but it's nice to see him stop running from his emotions for once. They held haaaands

Alright, we've already had guesses that our Loki, Sylvie, some other Loki variant, Renslayer, and Miss Minutes are going to be the ones really in charge beyond the void at the end of time. I'm going to throw one more name into the hat: Mobius.

Maybe as a consequence of his going back to the TVA to burn it all down, he finds he needs to take charge of the timeline up to that point to ensure that it stays burned down. Now that I'm typing this out I realize that it'd end up being an echo of some of the major themes from Nolan's Tenet, but Marvel doesn't shy away from borrowing ideas from elsewhere.

Yea, this. Loki is inexperienced at emotional connection, and often in that situation deeper feelings are automatically assumed to be romantic in nature, when in reality they can be much subtler. Having him realise this, or having her reject him romantically but they then go on to have a strong, enduring friendship would IMO be much more satisfying than "now we're a couple/now we're gonna fuck each other's brains out". I guess I'm okay with him crushing on her a bit -- he's found this other (arguably better) version of himself, who is strong and self-sufficient and has a purpose that goes beyond personal glory, so it's not unsurprising he's taken with her -- but will be disappointed if this goes in the textbook rom-com relationship territory.

It was weird to me that the void at the end of time was populated by several flocks of levitating-sphere-headed birds, several flocks of Lokis, and precisely one Mobius.

Well, they explained that Lokis are survivors. So maybe most Mobiuses who arrive in the Void get eaten by Alioth? They are not survivors as much.

Though it begs the question of how the OverMobius got to his position.

Pointless conjecture time:
  • The resident of the castle is most likely to be a Loki, or poss. a Sylvie.
  • Alternatively, it would be most likely be a Mobius. But not the same Mobius.
  • There will be many Mobiuses, back at the office. Or Mobii, I'm not sure.
  • Kang will debut in a mid-credits sequence, as Valentina did in F&WS, and Thanos did in... whichever film that was.
  • Yes, two completely different things are both most likely. That's why we have to keep the Multiverse under control, dammit, or sensible likelihood goes out of the window.

I'm vaguely curious how the timeline in the void is supposed to work. Mobius, Loki, and Sylvie all appear at what at least could be the same relative time to each other as the time of their pruning, which makes a fair amount of sense since they were all pruned in the same place. But the battleship that dropped in was far back in Loki's timeline at least, and quite possibly Mobius', if we assume the jet ski fixation is a bit of old memory seeping in. Which could be solved by the relevant timeline always being the TVA's, i.e., some agent went back to trim a timeline while stuff was happening at the TVA.

Except... in that case the whole place should be covered with very recent debris from the time-line bombing that was just hours ago TVA time. Instead it's mostly well-worn stuff and a lot of grass.
