Loki Season 1 finale ending explained: Who is in charge?

If there is one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that Loki lived up to its expectations. How did the first season come to an end?

Let’s talk the Loki Season 1 finale. There are spoilers in this post with that in mind, so if you haven’t watched the finale yet step away. Step far away. That finale is one you need to watch first.

The finale picked up off the back of the previous episode. Loki and Sylvie had made it past the creature in the wasteland. It was time to see the man behind the curtain, the wizard controlling it all. And with that came a major MCU villain played by Jonathan Majors.

Who was the man behind the TVA?

Our two Variants found out that Kang’s (okay, not mentioned by name but we know Majors is playing Kang the Conquerer in the new Ant-Man movie) ancestor had realized there were multiverses stacked up on top of each other. There were versions of himself across them all, and not all of them were as good as the others. So, he decided to combine the universes, and he is known as He Who Remains.

It seems like we got the story that had been told but with He Who Remains instead of the lizard creatures that turned out to be robots. However, He Who Remains said that if he was killed, all of his variants would return. The multiverses would have returned.

Uh oh!

Did Loki and Sylvie kill He Who Remains?

Our favorite trickster didn’t want to kill the man. However, Sylvie opted to do the deed, sending Loki back to the TVA, where Mobius and B-15 looked at the multiverses branching out. He Who Remains was right. His variants will return.

It looks like a lot more is happening, too. Mobius and B-15 have no idea who Loki is.

That’s where we end the series. But there’s a second season, right? This is where there’s some excellent news. Disney Plus has renewed Loki for a second season.
