Loki’s Episode 6 had just completed airing a few minutes back. With the cliffhanger episode 6, there is a lot of confusion remains on the ending; most importantly, we didn’t get to see who is the real villain of the series and What lies ahead for Loki and Sylvie? So to answer all the queries. Today in this article, we will discuss the ending of Loki Episode 6.
In our previous article related to Loki Episode 5 recap, we discussed that at the end of episode 5, we witnessed both Loki and Sylvie finally going towards the Citadel End of Time. As per the comics, this is where He Who Remains resides, and he was responsible for creating the TVA, and past Time Twisters had also destroyed numerous realities, and guess what, our assumption was somehow correct.
In episode 6, as well we saw both Loki and Sylvie meeting ‘He Who Remains’ in the Citadel-The end of time. ‘He Who Remains’ explained to Loki and Sylvie that he created the TVA to protect and keep the timeline secure. And also said that there were many versions of himself. He is, in fact, a human and once was a scientist who discovered the theory that all the universe realities are bound together as one. He managed to do some experiments and found his other variants from different universes.
But his other variants weren’t so good after all, and because of greed and power, all of them fought to save their timeline. Still, in the end, The one variant of He Who Remains was able to defeat all of the other ones. Then he managed to stream all the timelines together and created TVA to maintain it. He then moved to Citadel at the end of time, from where he controlled everything for around a million years.
He Who Remains offers both Loki and Sylvie two options either to kill him, then multiple evil versions of He Who Remains will come for them and take over the timeline, or else they should go back to TVA and be the new leader and keep everything going as it is.
The decision was tough for both Loki and Sylvie, and for the first time, we witnessed both Sylvie and Loki disagreeing. Loki thinks that before making the decision, they should consider if He Who Remains is telling the truth or not. If he is telling the truth, then killing him will create a much bigger problem for them. But Sylvie thinks otherwise; she thinks He Who Remains is lying, and she wants to kill him, and with that, They both start fighting each other off.
Later at the ending moments of the fight, when Sylvie was about to kill ‘He Who Remains,’ Loki tries one last time to make Sylvie understand the situation; if she kills him, then that might cause a much bigger problem. Loki tells her that he knows how she is feeling right now but killing him might create a bigger problem. They both then share an emotional moment and kiss each other before Sylvie uses that opportunity to send back Loki to TVA and Kill ‘He Who Remains.’
After sending Loki back to TVA, Sylvie kills He Who Remains, and in the end moments of the finale, we heard He Who Remains saying he will see her again before Sylvie finally kills him.
The episode’s highlight was Jonathan Majors, who impressed everyone with his acting as He Who Remains and with the ending scene. We bet now we will see him back in season 2 of Loki.
Loki Episode 6 Ending Explained
At the end of Episode 6 of Loki, We see Sylvie sending Loki back to TVA and kills He Who Remain; then we see multiple timeline branches all spreading apart.
When Loki gets sent to TVA, he tries to find Mobius, and when he does, he tells Mobius about the whole stuff that has happened so far but interestingly, Mobius doesn’t recognize Loki. As soon as the camera moves, we witness a new timekeeper statue of He Who Remains; and episode 6 ends there. It means Loki is now on a different timeline of TVA.
As per our analysis as during the last moments of Loki Episode 6, when Sylvie kills He Who Remains, we briefly remember him saying that he will see her soon. So possibly, in the next season, we will witness some of the evil versions of He Who Remains we will going to come back for the war.
And with no one at the Citadel keeping the time branches stable, we don’t know how it will impact the timelines now. Plus, as of now, we don’t know who is the real villain of the series. Is it Kang, or is it an evil version of Loki himself? We don’t know for sure.
We will possibly have to wait for a season 2 of Loki to see if the God of Mischief manages to survive in the new timeline of TVA. Plus, will Sylvie and Loki ever meet now? Well, only season 2 can give all the answers to us.
As season 1 just ended on a cliffhanger note, all we can say is that there will be a Season 2 of Loki for sure.
