ended on Wednesday with the sixth and final episode of beat . The season finale begins with Gods of Mischief Variants Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie ( ) after they are revealed of the mastermind behind the Time Variance Authority, leaving a post-credits scene that opens up a multiverse of Marvel possibilities.
Regardless, former TVA agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) returned to his old job, determined to reveal the truth that he and his former employees are all variants that it wasand had their memories erased. It is unclear whether TVA judge Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) will help or hinder Mobius in his search.
Keep your brain entertained with the coolest news from streaming to superheroes, memes to video games.
Let’s dodge the SPOILER Variance Authority and dive into the episode one last time, for an episode called For All Time, Always.
The villain is revealed
When entering the citadel at the end of time, Loki and Sylvie meet He who remains (), who appears to be a version of the time-hopping comic book villain Kang the Conqueror. We already knew this guy was going to make his MCU debut in film in February 2023 .
Since he’s never referred to as the kang in this episode, it seems like the kang has yet to appear. He Who Remains claims to be the last survivor of a multiverse war that broke out when several versions of him were found after the multiverse was discovered on Dec.
He who remains declares the 31st Multiverse War
He tamed and armed Alioth using the transtemporal being to end the war (presumably by devouring the other timelines). To prevent it from happening again, he formed the TVA to manage the Sacred Timeline.
In the comics, Kang is a 31st century villain who has faced the Avengers many times since his debut in the 60s.
Oh hey, the TVA has a new statue.
Loki and Sylvie argue about the fate of Er Who Remains, with the latter gaining the upper hand (after a little variant kissing time). She throws Loki back to the TVA and kills He Who Remains, which makes the timeline branch like crazy – apparently she’s got many versions of Kang running amok in the Multiverse.
Her influence soon becomes apparent in the TVA as Loki tries to warn top Bud agents Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku) of the threat. They can’t remember him and Loki turns to see a statue of Kang in his comic costume towering over the TVA – it appears that the god of mischief has been sent to another version of the agency that Kang openly controlled.
This presumably leads directly into, which should appear in March 2022 and to the where Wanda heard her prodigal sons call out from a plane of reality – their search will likely continue in the sequel to Doctor Strange.
It also probably opens the doors for most of the timeto be inserted into the canon. The animated series, which launches on Disney Plus on Wednesday, August 11th, explores alternate realities based on events that play out differently in the MCU. And maybe, just maybe, it will tear down the walls between realities for .
“Um, Mr. Laufeyson, your case file says you have another season to do. Good luck.”
Announcement after the credits
A postage stamp hits Loki’s TVA case file, revealing that “Loki will be back in Season 2” – the timeline tom fools and variant kisses continue.
