If you haven’t watched the Loki finale yet, don’t go on social media because Wednesday’s Twitter trends have broadcasted the show’s major twist.
Warning: This post contains MAJOR spoilers for Loki episode 6.
Loki fans who ventured onto Twitter ahead of watching Wednesday’s finale might’ve seen more than they wanted to, as the trending topics spoiled the episode’s massive villain twist. Ever since the first episode of Disney+’s Loki arrived in June, there’s been a major question hanging over the entire series: Who created the TVA? Up until episode 4, the answer appeared to be the Time-Keepers, but they proved to be fakes. This led Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) to press on beyond the end of time to learn the truth behind the TVA.
As is per usual for any Marvel project these days, fans have been abuzz with theories over Loki‘s overarching villain. Leading contenders included everyone from TVA mascot Miss Minutes (Tara Strong) to a Variant of Loki himself. Both of those guesses would be wrong; the season 1 finale of Loki revealed Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) is the one behind the TVA. Or, at least, a Variant of him is. Majors was cast as Kang last fall, but it was reported he would make his debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
Like past weeks, it didn’t take long for fans to hop on social media to share their thoughts on the Loki finale. Early on Wednesday, Loki was the #1 trending topic on Twitter, which isn’t a spoiler in and of itself. However, two other major keywords ended up trending alongside it: “Jonathan Majors” and “Kang.” The same thing happened months ago with WandaVision and its fake Pietro (Evan Peters) twist.
Prior to Loki‘s premiere, Majors stated he had no involvement with the series. Of course, Marvel fans know by now that actors will often lie about their knowledge of certain projects in order to prevent spoilers from getting out, and having Kang debut on Loki is a pretty big one. There were a lot of theories about Kang having a hand in the TVA somehow, and now those have been proven correct – mostly, seeing as the Kang who created the TVA isn’t necessarily the villain who is guaranteed to dominate the MCU’s Phase 4.
Unlike previous Marvel Disney+ outings WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki didn’t have a definitive ending. Instead, the finale concluded with a jaw-dropping cliffhanger that saw Sylvie kill the Kang Variant and unleash a multiversal war. As a result, Loki will return for season 2, though Marvel has yet to confirm when it will premiere. Nevertheless, the final episode of season 1 has major repercussions for the rest of the MCU, and few things about the future are certain. The only thing that is clear now is that Kang has arrived, and he’s going to break the Marvel universe wide open.
Loki will return for season 2 on Disney+.
