We’re more than halfway through the second season of ‘Loki,’ and the next two episodes are bound to be the best the show has ever seen, at least according to the hype generated around them. Loki’s first standalone project in the MCU has been a wild but beautiful ride of pseudo-science, redemption, and consequences. The grand mystery surrounding He Who Remains and his natural place in the order of things, however, remains unexplored.
Many speculations have been made regarding the last two episodes of the season, and according to MyTimeToShineHello, a reputable source of leaks on X Loki will, in fact, take over He Who Remains’ spot and hold the Multiverse together while ensuring that all timelines have their individuality and freedom.
Now, this seems like a pretty drastic spoiler to just announce without any kind of warning whatsoever, so take it with a massive grain of salt. What sounds far more intriguing is one other post made by Alex P. that simply says, “The Loom is a lie.”
As a reminder, the Temporal Loom and the danger it currently presents have been the focus of the series so far. Everything that Loki has done, along with Mobius and Sylvie, has been for the sake of repairing the Loom that came dangerously close to exploding due to being unable to handle all the additional timeline branches that have been created since TVA started lacking real leadership. At the end of episode 4, Loom seemingly exploded.
Alex’s tweet might indicate that Temporal Loom either didn’t explode or is not nearly as important of an element in keeping the timelines and Multiverse together as we thought. Perhaps fixing the Loom was just a way for He Who Remains to set Loki, Mobius, Sylvie, Ravonna, and everyone else on a certain path that they need to follow in order to ensure that his “backup plan” works.
The answer to these questions, and many more, we’re certainly going to find out soon as there are only two episodes remaining in the series. ‘Loki’ Episode 5 drops on Disney+ on November 2.
