Loki season 2 has finally come to an end with the final sixth episode and the ending of this season is as “glorious” as you can imagine. In this episode, we see Loki, after learning how to control his time, go back in time multiple times to protect the timelines’ demise. He literally goes back centuries to learn everything there is to learn so he can fix the temporary loom. However, all his efforts are in vain after he realizes that no matter what he does, the temporary loom cannot be repaired. He had two options: one to kill Sylvie and protect He Who Remains, or let Sylvie kill He Who Remains, resulting in the downfall of all time. So he does something no one could have imagined and finally achieves his glorious goal, but what is it? What is Loki’s glorious goal that he achieves in Loki Season 2, Episode 6? Find out in this article!
Loki becomes the center of the multiverse
At the end of this episode, we see that, after several attempts, Loki understands that he will have to take matters into his own hands, quite literally. Loki walks out of the blast doors as the temporal loom goes haywire and as his clothes burn off from the radiation, he puts on his Loki costume, which is very different from what we saw before.
Loki uses his magic to break the temporal loom and deliberately destroy all timelines. He then grabs all the dead branches and brings them together. We see him spot He Who Remains’ damaged mansion and walk towards it, holding on to the dead branches.
He sits on the throne of He Who Remains and brings all the dead branches back to life. We see that all the branches of time form a tree-like structure around him and that he is the center of it, holding together all the timelines and their growing branches. This is a huge reference to the Yggdrasil tree in Norse mythology, where the entire universe and all nine realms exist. In the Norse myths, Odin and his horse take care of this tree, but here we see that Loki is the master of all time.
When we talk about his “Glorious Purpose” Loki always wanted a throne and was looking for his glorious place in the cosmos and as far as I think, this is the best way we could have seen him achieve this. At the moment we don’t know what this could lead to, but it could be its origin upcoming Marvel projects like it Avengers: Secret Wars. Whichever way Marvel decides to do this, one thing is certain: Loki’s Glorious Purpose could extend to more than just being the master of all time, but only time will tell what happens next.
