Loki episode 2, “The Variant,” revamped the entire MCU. Until the next episode, we can only theorize where things will go from here. I mean, in just 2 episodes, the Loki Disney+ series has given us so much to digest. The first episode told us about the Time Keepers and their Sacred Timeline. And in the second episode, Lady Loki bombed the Sacred Timeline and sent the TVA into utmost turmoil. This was a major event in the series. But where all did Lady Loki executed her plans? Here’s every place and year that Lady Loki bombed:
Vormir is a barren land that is the house of Soul Stone. In order to possess it, one must sacrifice a soul to get the Soul Stone. In the MCU, Vormir holds is important to the MCU. Two important characters, Gamora and Black Widow have died here and were introduced in Infinity War. According to the TVA’s screens, a reset charge hit Vormir on April 23, 2301. But that is long after Gamora and Black Widow were sacrificed here. So, the purpose of bombing Vormir’s timeline is still uncertain.
The planet Titan is really significant in the MCU because it’s the birthplace of Thanos. As the Mad Titan explained, it once had a thriving civilization but was decimated by overpopulation and left as a barren wasteland plagued by electrical storms. The reset charge by Lady Loki was sent on October 13, 1982. So this can mean that instead of targeting the Titans in general Lady Loki may have been specifically targeting Thanos.
This can fave a few effects in the MCU and erase some major events. So, if Lady Loki is able to take Thanos out of the occasion would create a timeline where the Snap never happened. Moreover, the Infinity Stone wouldn’t be destroyed, and would also save the main timeline’s Loki from being killed by Thanos. So, this can reverse a lot of events in the MCU.
Lady Loki has done something massive. Her action is somewhat equivalent to Thanos’ snap. She has possibly attacked the Nine Realms, including the realm of Niflheim. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Niflheim was for many years the abode of Thor: Ragnarok villain Hela. She was trapped there for millennia by Odin. Not soon after, her timeline was merged with Thor in Ragnarok. So perhaps Lady Loki has crossed paths with her as well and wants to take revenge.
Sakaar was introduced in Thor: Ragnarok. One of Lady Loki’s reset charges was sent to Sakaar on August 13, 1984. It is a trash planet that is ruled by the Grandmaster and is located in the Tayo star system. surrounded by wormholes, the one that takes the main place is “The Devil’s Anus.” It connects to various places in the Universe. So, if the reset charge accidentally got sucked into the Devil’s Anus there’s no telling where it might have ended up. More and more multiverses!
Xandar made its first MCU appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy and is the capital of the Nova Empire. The reset charge by Lady Loki hit Xandar on September 24, 1001, and may drastically change the course of the planet’s history. That’s because the population was decimated by Thanos, who tore Xandar apart in order to get the Infinity Stone that was in the Nova Corps’ custody.
Carol “Vers” Danvers lived on Hala for many years after losing her memories and being recruited to fight in the Kree-Skrull War. And as a result, Hala was heavily featured in Captain Marvel. Lady Loki’s reset charge hits Hala on January 3, 54 CE, a couple of millennia before Carol’s arrival, and about a thousand years before the Kree-Skrull War began.
7. Earth Locations
Most of the places that appear on the TVA’s screens are on Earth, and most of them are what we know. That’s because not many places on Earth are established in the MCU. There’s a preference for major cities like New York, Rome, and Tokyo, but there doesn’t appear to be any particular significance to the dates. Now, this points towards the fact that Lady Loki did this just to create random chaos. Here are the Earth-based locations that Lady Loki chose as her target:
- Rome, Italy – October 3rd, 1390
- Lisbon, Portugal – March 31, 1492
- Phong Nha, Vietnam – August 3, 1522
- Barcelona, Spain – 1540
- Thorton, USA – October 25, 1551
- Porvoo, Finland – July 14, 1708
- Barichara, Columbia – February 2, 1808
- Madrid, Spain – July 18, 1903
- New York, USA – September 21, 1947
- Tokyo, Japan – March 1, 1984
- Kingsport, USA – August 2, 1999
- Cookeville, USA – November 22, 1999
- Beijing, China – November 23, 2005
- Dartford, England – 2006
Jotunheim is Loki’s own birthplace. It is one of the Nine Realms and the home of the Frost Giants. So you know that it is of utmost importance to Loki’s future and history both. Episode 2 revealed that there are other Loki variants in the MCU. This reset charge could risk wiping all the Loki variants out of existence by preventing him from being born.
We all adore Star-Lord don’t we? Well, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 introduced it first, and Ego the Living Planet is the father of Star-Lord. He was determined to pass on his Celestial DNA to an heir and fathered thousands of children across the galaxy. Lady Loki sends a reset charge to Ego on December 27, 1832, which could create a timeline where Star-Lord was never born. Now, this is something that can affect the events in Guardians 3.
Lady Loki’s reset charge was sent to February 16, 2004. This means that Asgard still exists in the MCU. This is seven years before Loki learned that he’s actually a Frost Giant who was taken from Jotunheim as a baby. Before that, he was unaware. Hence, the reset charge in Asgard’s timeline may as well create a totally different Loki.
Knowhere is basically is the floating skull of a Celestial. It made its first MCU appearance in Thor: The Dark World‘s post-credits scene when Sif and Valstagg handed over the Reality Stone to the Collector. Lady Loki may have been targeting one of these Infinity Stones as she has also targetted Titan, the one with the utmost interest in them. Moreover, she could be interested in other stuff as well because it is home to a mining colony whose inhabitants have a rich trade in mining brain, bone, and spinal fluid from the dead Celestial.
So that’s every place and year that Lady Loki bombed in the Sacred Timeline. Her intentions and the outcome of her actions will be explored in episode 3. The Loki Disney+ series stars Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, and Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane, and Eugene Cordero in undisclosed roles. The series premieres on June 9 on Disney+.
