#Loki #Season2 #Breakdown
We have so much to break down in this trailer–small details you missed, theories about what the hell is going on here, and how all of this is leading to the culmination of the multiverse saga: Kang dynasty and secret wars.
Also, throughout this trailer, pay attention to the recurrence of circles and loops. During Loki season 1, we put out one of my favorite screencrush videos, about how Loki the character is stuck in circular loops. His own evil impulses keep playing him in this same situation [Raganrok Thor circles clip]. This was manifested in season 1, when Loki’s punishment was to relive his worst memory, over and over again [sif kneeing him a few times].
This is also like Loki in Norse mythology–because Loki ultimately starts off the chain of events that leads to Ragnarok, cueing the world to be reborn, so this whole proc ess starts again. And if you recall, this is exactly what happens in Loki season 1. So here’s a quick recap of what went down in season 1 and bits of Quantumania, just in case the memories are fuzzy.
After being pruned we saw Loki and his variant, Sylvie, enter the Void at the end of time.
There they defeat the time-eating beast, Alioth, and enter the Citadel at the End of Time where they meet the Kang Variant, He Who Remains. [clip]
Kang explains to Loki and Sylvie the ins and outs of the Sacred Timeline and the Multiversal War that preceded it. [clip]
This version of Kang went to war with his variants and won. He then used Alioth to prune trillions of realities from existence and create the Sacred Timeline. A circular flow of time only allows for certain realities to exist. If anyone veers from the pre-determined path, they’re arrested by the TVA, and their reality is pruned. That’s how this particular variant of Loki has found himself in this situation.
After the Avengers time heist in Avengers Endgame, we saw Loki escape with the Tesseract, causing a variant timeline to begin to branch. [clip]
We see Loki arrested by the TVA and that timeline gets pruned.
Anyway, He Who Remains explains to Loki and Sylvie that if variant timelines aren’t pruned, then variants of himself will rise and the multiverse war will happen again.
Sylvie doesn’t buy it and wants to kill He Who Remains for committing what she views as mass genocide. But Loki fears what will happen if the timeline is left unchecked.
They begin to duel and Sylvie gets the upper hand sending Loki back to the TVA. She then kills He Who Remains and the timeline devolves into madness. And He Who Remains says [clip, “See you soon.”]
Loki runs to find Mobius and explains what has happened but soon realizes that Mobius has no idea who he is. Implying that either time has been rewritten and Mobius and Loki never met, OR, Loki was pushed into a different TVA.
And then in Antman and The Wasp Quantumania we meet the Kang the Conqueror variant who we’ve theorized is likely destined to become He Who Remains. Both share the same goal of wiping out all of their variants and establishing a sacred timeline.
In the post-credits scene of Quantumania, we meet these other variants in what’s called the Council of Kang’s. And we can see what was once the Sacred Timeline now in complete chaos and referred to simply as “the multiverse” [clip]
So this opening shot of the trialer already tells us so much about the series. Notice how this doorway is a circle–but also looks like a keyhole- Because this season is about Loki and the others trying to unlock this mystery–to stop all the variants of Kang.
The poster on the right reads temperamental temp pad – don’t delay repair it today!
The one on the left is about the pneumatic tube etiquette, which we see in this repair shop.
Doug: Tubes like the ones at a bank drive-through?
Yes, that’s right. In the old days, office buildings used to send memos or mail using these tubes. So all around this repair office, we can see pneumatic tubes, where people have sent their repair requests to be processed.
