In a surprising turn of events, the Season 2 finale of the Disney+ series Loki revealed the true purpose of the God of Mischief. Through centuries of studying and countless time-slips, Loki came to understand the importance of preventing the Sacred Timeline from branching. While attempting to stop Sylvie from slaying He Who Remains, Loki discovered that their interactions were not unique and that there had been multiple conversations between them.
He Who Remains unveiled the truth about the Loom, explaining that it was designed to delete all timelines except the Sacred one when overloaded. Breaking the Loom would lead to a brutal war where nothing would survive. Alternatively, killing Sylvie would protect what remained, sacrificing individual free will. Loki faced a difficult choice: to break the Loom and risk destruction or to eliminate Sylvie and maintain order.
In a bold move, Loki time-slipped back to a crucial moment and shattered the Loom using his godly powers. As branches of the timelines began to die, Loki gathered them and ascended a set of invisible steps. He merged the branches into the World Tree, Yggdrasill, which connects the Nine Realms. The Season 2 finale left viewers with a glimpse of the new TVA, now based on the tree loom, as O.B. rebooted a hopefully less dangerous Miss Minutes.
With He Who Remains variants unaware of the TVA’s existence, Mobius and B-15 contemplated the future. Mobius made the decision to leave the TVA, eager to explore the world they had been protecting for so long. The finale concluded with a note of intrigue, as Mobius discovered a folder on his desk alluding to an unknown request.
This thrilling conclusion to Loki’s second season demonstrates the immense power and responsibility that lies within the God of Mischief. It raises questions about the nature of free will, the consequences of altering time, and the possibilities that unfold when a new path is forged. As the World Tree stands tall, viewers eagerly await the next chapter in Loki’s journey and the impact it will have on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
