    Calling it now.

    The reason nobody knows what happens at the end of time is because the Time Keepers are attempting to maintain the only timeline in which they come out in top.


    Also jesus how many times I gotta listen to that song this week. :lol

    So obvious reveal was obvious.

    Also, it looks like Lady Loki just restored the Multiverse at the end there.

    I agree.
    Though I'm not sure that the Time Keepers are anything more than an illusion at this point. They've already hinted at that a little in the show. I think this is all going to go back to Kang. Though that's just a workimg theory based on who Revonna Renslayer is and the fact that the show is pushing the narrative of questioning the Time Keepers existence. Even Mobius has apparently never met them.

    Its been pointed out by several people that she’s listed as Sylvie in the credits. Not Lady Loki.

    Sylvie works for Old King Loki in the comics!

    I wasn't expecting an Agatha Harkness cameo anytime soon at all, but I guess showing up at a 1985 renaissance faire makes more sense than anywhere else. I wonder if we're going to get other cameos like this.

    EDIT: so upon a rewatch, I can see it's not the same actor, so it's very likely *NOT* Agatha Harkness.

    The theory some people are posting online is the Molecule man, but it's very loose and they are just guessing based on very little information. If it was the other character it would be a school based on a feminist icon based on the universe she comes from. I'll wait for more clues.

    Sadly I saw the reveal of who the variant Loki was coming a mile away, and blond? They couldn't even take the time to dye their hair, give them a wig, or give them a more comic accurate appearance?
    Okay if it is the 2nd Enchantress that would make more sense, but so far I didn't get much out of the character or their performance which seemed phoned in Some of the possessed people did a better job than she did.
    Honestly it's very predictable so far and I was bored through most of the episode. With a character like loki you need a team that can actually write surprises and suspense. So far it's been cliche after predictable cliche. Only thing keeping me interested is the performances between Hiddleson and Wilson who are both doing a good job. But compared to Loki in the movies, so far it seems a step back for the character. Hiddlson is doing his best but they aren't giving him much material to work with.

    I agree this episode was slow and boring as fuck like the slow Netflix Castlevania episodes and that's hour #2 down and 4 more hours to go. The pacing and editing was just bad.

    This song has been getting a lot of play lately; 1st in the He-Man Revelations trailer and then in the Guardians of the Galaxy game trailer.

    Wasn’t really quite sure where it was going the first half, but Tom and Owen are doing good. The ending was really cool, I loved the super tense, epic feel I got. Especially from that gorgeous score and the lighting and color.

    This is still really intriguing and mysterious and I like that sort of surreal horror vibe like in WandaVision’s end credits.

    I mean if you're talking about a COUPLE of things like the other variant, okay I guess, but only in the most general of terms.

    Like yes, this series will in all likelihood end with the downfall of the TVA so that the multiverse can happen, but HOW that is going about is pretty ingenious, at least I think so. I mean did you predict that the variant was hiding out in apocalypses? The very concept of that I thought was brilliant. Also setting off all the charges at once but through the other way to blow through several areas all over the universe and create an incredible number of variant timelines at once was also brilliant and something I did not see coming especially in episode two, even if the end result was something I did. I really don't see how you can say you can say this is cliche in anything other than the broadest generalities like "Loki betrays people", but if you're going to be that general almost anything is cliche unless you're M. Night Shamalyan and you're just throwing in twists for the sake of throwing in twists.

    At least that's what I assume she did. One of those charges dropped in the lap of Hitler in 1940, another next to Gandhi, another at a summit of world leaders... something that would completely change timelines all over the place. Or did she send them all into the TVA? I guess we'll find out next ep.

    EDIT: Well nevermind, I guess Chopperface saw something I didn't.

    Some of the planets the Variant bombed were Titan, Knowhere, Vormir, Morag, Asgard, Hala, Xandar, and Ego(!)

    Might be Sylvie by name and looks, but I'm guessing she'll be an composite character of her comic-self and the Lady Loki era without the Enchantress or Sif connections and a lot of backstory unique to the MCU.

    Just something to think about before the speculation train gets too far from the station, Wandavision's credits didn't give the game away with Evan Peters character, and remember all the people absolutely certain that Alexander Pierce would be Red Skull in disguise just like the comics before Winter Soldier came out?

    I give almost no weight to "information" of that sort that comes entirely from the episodes credits.
