Loki season 2 ended with a bang, with Tom Hiddleston’s god of mischief-making the ultimate sacrifice and proving himself to be every bit the hero that his big brother Thor is. Loki had already surpassed Josh Brolin’s Thanos as the best villain in the MCU prior to this episode. He may now be the best character in the MCU, period. No other MCU character has progressed or changed so fundamentally over the course of so many movies and TV episodes.
Loki’s Season 2 finale is all about completing the circle. It’s written right there in the name. The web series finale and finale are both titled “Glorious Purpose.” Loki even returns to the events of the series premiere when he visits his original meeting with Owen Wilson’s Mobius. This episode is all about going back in time to see where Loki was before he became who he was meant to be.
Loki season 2 hype:
One of the defining characteristics of Norse mythology is that great power necessitates great sacrifice. To achieve omniscience, Odin famously sacrificed his own flesh, throwing his eye into Mimir’s well, impaling himself on his spear, Gungnir, and finally hanging himself on Yggdrasil. That agonizing sacrifice unlocked complete knowledge of the nine realms as well as a slew of incredible powers.
Is there a Loki season 3?
Marvel has yet to confirm whether the Season 2 finale will also be Loki’s series finale. Having said that, it appears that the series has come to an end. Where do you go when your main character has evolved into a time god who rules over the entire multiverse? Loki can’t exactly return to solving time-travel mysteries with Mobius and the gang. This episode wraps up all loose ends for Loki, Mobius, and Sylvie with a sense of closure.
That being said, there are some loose ends that we assume will be addressed in future MCU projects. The TVA is still active, albeit with a different agenda than before. The TVA’s agents are no longer pruning timelines. Instead, they’re doing everything they can to help the multiverse thrive and put a stop to those who would disrupt the natural flow of time.
