‘Loki’: The Unanswered Questions the Finale Didn’t Resolve
The following post contains SPOILERS for the finale of Loki. Once you read it, there’s no altering the timeline to unread it.
In the final episode of Loki, the truth about the “Sacred Timeline” was revealed — it was all a hoax! — as was the identity of the man behind the Time Variance Authority. It was He Who Remains, as played by Jonathan Majors, who will return again in future Marvel movies and shows as different versions of the same character, including as the villainous Kang the Conqueror in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Beyond resolving those fundamental mysteries, though, the ending of Loki wasn’t much of an ending at all. Instead, it set up an entire multiverse of storylines to come in Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In doing so, it raised new questions about Loki and Sylvie’s future. And it gave so much screen time to He Who Remains and his explanation for the TVA, that it left very little time to bring the show’s other storylines and mysteries to a satisfying conclusion. As we sit here waiting patiently for Loki Season 2, here are the questions we’ll be wondering about that never got answered in Season 1.
