Loki 206 Glorious Purpose Podcast
Head Writer: Michael Waldron
Episode Written by: Eric Martin
Loki time slips to the moment before the Temporal Loom's explosion. Despite his attempts, the Loom always fails as it cannot scale up to accommodate the infinite branches.
Loki slips again, this time to the moment before Sylvie kills He Who Remains, who tells Loki that the Loom is a fail-safe; overloading it protects the Sacred Timeline by deleting the branches along with the TVA.
Loki tries to stop Sylvie from killing He Who Remains over and over again but to no avail. As he attempts to stop Sylvie again, He Who Remains freezes her and tells Loki there is only one way to save the Loom is to kill Sylvie, which Loki rejects.
After speaking with Mobius and Sylvie at different moments in time, Loki replaces Victor Timely and goes out into the temporal radiation to destroy the Loom. As the timelines begin to wither Loki uses his magic to revive the dying timelines. Pulling the branches together as he makes his way to He Who Remains’ throne, he arranges them into a branching structure resembling the Worlds Tree. Sitting atop of time on the throne of He Who Remains he commits himself to overseeing the branches in solitude at the End of Time.
The TVA accepts the growing branches and now tracks He Who Remains' variants, with Mobius reporting one of them has been stopped at Earth-616's "adjacent realm". B-15 becomes one of the TVA's leaders. Ouroboros reactivates a now-friendly Miss Minutes and writes a new TVA Guidebook with Timely as co-author.
In 1863, Victor Timely does not receive the TVA Guidebook. Renslayer awakens in the Void and encounters Alioth. Mobius retires from the TVA. He meets Sylvie at his home and observe Don and his children for a few moments. As Sylvie leaves him behind, Mobius says he’s going to stay a little while longer.
