Loki's episode 4 streaming on Disney+ brings out new revelations about the nature of the Time-Keepers, Loki and the Time Variance Authority.
With all the excitement building up around the Disney plus Hotstar’s “Loki” series, the internet has been flooded with all kinds of memes on Loki’s 4th episode: The Nexus Event, giving out a bunch of spoilers. According to the viewers, this episode has been a rollercoaster ride and it’s hands down the best episode of the series. So what’s this Loki Episode 4 and post-credits scene hype all about? There are a few scenes that were completely unexpected and which sparked plenty of questions amongst its viewers and we have listed down a few iconic ones down here.
Episode 4 and Thanos (Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
In this episode, we can see TVA in a flashback capturing and arresting the young Sylvie because they think that she’s a variant, while Sylvie was just trying to play with her toy Viking ship like a good Asgardian. In the episode: 01 of this series, the TVA is shown as a good organization, doing its best to safeguard the sacred timeline. But as the series unfolds, the darker side of TVA is revealed. The TVA might be an evil organization.
In another scene, we can see Mobius listing down some of the creatures which were arrested by the TVA. Some of them are Kree, Titans, vampires, etc. Fans couldn’t hold their excitement after the series mentioned “Vampires”, as it has not been mentioned ever in MCU before. We already saw Kree, in Captain Marvel, the shape-shifting extraterrestrials. Titans as the inhabitants of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, and Thanos who was a titan. The introduction of Blade could be on hold and possible, as Halloween season is on its way. It is also giving us major hints about Loki setting up Blade. Not to overshadow the fact that Mobius also mentioned “Titans”, which could be a reference to all the different characters in the Endgame. But who knows if MCU is planning to bring back Mad Titan “Thanos” himself or introduce his new variants?
From the other point of view, it can be possible that Time Variance Authority has already captured one of the Thanos’ variants. Some fans also think that, maybe Thanos was already aware of TVA in Avengers Endgame and that at some point Thanos deviates off of the “Sacred Timelines,” using his powers. Another mysterious part of this series is the Time Keepers. Many viewers suspect that Time Keepers are not real and they are just androids. Ravonna Renslayer has been suspected of the creation of Timekeepers.
MCU Introducing Thanos Variants ?
In the post-credits scene, we can see Loki waking up loudly, while he struggles to figure out if he is Dead or alive. As shown in the scene, it looks like he woke up in a post-apocalyptic New York City. On waking up he saw many other variants of himself. The Loki variants include young Loki, older Loki, and even an alligator Loki.
Now because they introduced so many variants of Loki and also mentioned TVA arresting different variants of titans, there might be different variants of Mad Titan hanging around in the same timeline or the different ones. Which makes its fans think about all the weird variants of Thanos like classic Thanos or young Thanos maybe. There’s also a possibility of Loki Introducing these variants, which is going to be as hilarious as it seems. Also, we can see something which seems like the Avengers Tower on the right side of the screen, at the end of the post-credits scene, which hints towards Earth.
We will have to wait for the other two episodes to find out what exactly happens next.
