The concluding scenes, which include captivating people and surreal settings, pose important queries regarding the direction that the Marvel Cinematic Universe may go. As timelines clash, fates change, and the unexpected becomes the standard, let’s explore the complexities of Loki Season 2’s climax and solve the mystery.
Loki Season 2 Ending Explain3ed
Loki has the chance to try fixing the Temporal Loom as many times as necessary now that he’s back at the TVA before disaster strikes. The branching timelines that have been growing ever since Sylvia killed He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) now overrun the Loom.
Fortunately, O.B. and Victor Timely (Majors) invented a mechanism that ought to enable the Temporal Loom to grow and handle the excess timeline backlog that’s overwhelming it.
Victor Timely was torn by radiation as soon as he left the TVA’s blast doors during their initial attempt to launch the bomb at Loom. Now that Loki has returned to this exact moment, all they need to do is move more quickly to avoid radioactive overexposure.
He resets himself repeatedly by slipping through time, growing a little faster each time but never quite fast enough. Loki understands that they will not be able to save the Temporal Loom in time, no matter how fast and effectively they move.
He needs to delve further deeper. When Loki time-slips to the moment Victor Timely and O.B. devise their scheme, he finds that their construction of the gadget to preserve the Loom is taking significantly longer than expected.
He decides to create the device himself, but he has to absorb all of O.B.’s knowledge in engineering, physics, and mechanics, which he is informed will require “centuries.” A title card then says, “Centuries later.” After a hilariously protracted period, Loki can now construct the device on his own.
They successfully enhanced the Temporal Loom to extend its rings and control the backlog of branching timelines, and the procedure ultimately proceeded quickly enough to prevent radiation exposure.
But after all that time and effort, nothing changes. Victor Timely discovers that the branching timelines grow infinitely and exponentially. Because something cannot be scaled to infinity, scaling the Temporal Loom to handle the backlog of timelines is insufficient.
Then, in a turn that is surprisingly appropriate for a show full of allegories involving a Möbius strip, an ouroboros snake biting its tail, and the cyclical nature of Loki’s storyarc, the Loki Season 2 finale leaps back in time to the conclusion of the first season.
Loki travels back in time to the instant just before Sylvie killed He Who Remains and started the branching histories that would ultimately destroy the Loom in He Who Remains’ royal room at the End of Time.

Will We Ever See Loki in the MCU Again?
This was Loki’s dramatic conclusion, and it was appropriate for a figure who had gone through so much change. After such a dramatic ending, it would be kind of comical to see him show up in a movie filming one-liners once more.
At this point, Loki’s journey seems to have finally gone full circle. Thus, it makes sense that someone would wish to end it here. Still, this is Marvel, and Marvel television series and movies are based on comic books.
Not that anyone in comics ever remains dead or retired for very long. There’s a chance that this Loki will hold the TVA for all time, but eventually, we see another Loki get back together with Thor.
Given that he understands how to take down Kang, there’s a chance that this Loki will come in pretty helpful in Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or Avengers: Secret Wars, for example.
Additionally, there’s a chance they decide to end the novel here with a decisive outcome. All we can do is wait and see what transpires in the upcoming years.
