Loki has made its way to Disney+ and we’re all loving it, aren’t we? The show has already explained the concept of the Multiverse and how the Time Variance Authority came into being. We also got to see the Time Keepers maintaining the ‘Sacred Timeline.’ This Sacred Timeline helped us believe that all the events in Endgame happened because the Time Keepers said so. Loki confronting the time travel issues of Endgame, and it seemed as though they would finally get their answers. But we have finally got more answers to Loki‘s Sacred Timeline. And now, it makes no sense according to Endgame as explained by a Tik Tok user.
Endgame Proves That Loki’s Sacred Timeline Makes No Sense
Miss MInutes explained that the Sacred Timeline was made in order to prevent the Multiversal war that happens because of multiple branches. But now, a TikTok user recently noted, the explanation for the Time Variance Authority’s recriminations to Loki pointing at the Avengers’ interference with time. It just doesn’t make sense and only adds more questions to the theory.
Miss Minutes made it clear that the TVA is responsible for pruning unnatural variations to the timeline. This happens when branching realities that are not meant to exist come into existence. And we remember Endgame‘s plot. It largely revolved around the Avengers executing a Time Heist to collect the Infinity Stones to reverse Thanos’ destruction.
Loki points to the Avengers’ own interference with time. But, the TVA alleges that the heroes’ interferences were meant to happen. Whereas Loki’s were not. It is also said that if Loki had not stolen the Cosmic Cube, then Tony Stark and Steve Rogers wouldn’t have to head back to the 1970s to get the same. Agent Mobius said that the concept of right and wrong does not prevail in the TVA.
How The TVA Could Be Villainous
Throughout the two episodes, the show has established that the TVA is the strongest force in all of the Universe. Well, considering that they have the Infinity Stones lying around like paperweights. But Mobius’ comment implied something strong. Rather than being a continuity error, Loki’s actions be a hint that there is some radical business going on within the TVA.
Honestly, something bigger is lurking in the TVA and their explanation for the Endgame heist is simply baseless. Their decisions seem completely unpredictable and their methods are full of endless bureaucracy. Moreover, I might have something else to claim this fact. There have already been dark implications about the nature of the TVA agents, who live their entire lives within the offices of the TVA. So, could it be that all this is just a front to cover up the chaos created in Endgame? Could the Sacred Timeline not exist after all?
Why Loki’s Sacred Timeline Does Not make Sense
Endgame focused on a very elaborate Time Heist. Moreover, Steve had to go back in time after the Cosmic Cube was taken. That’s because Mobius stated that one cannot simply go back in time before the event as the flow of time is anyway disrupted. So, it’s nearly impossible for one to imagine that Steve going back to Peggy wouldn’t have created an alternate branch. And it does not fit well with the explanation that the Time Keepers approved of it. Such conflicts will need greater depth before they’re satisfactory.
Loki would have to dig deeper into the actions of the Avengers. Plus, the second episode has made it clear that the Time Keepers are actively interested in the actions of Loki. So, if they are destined to appear in the show at any point in time, then the question regarding the Endgame Time Heist should be asked. Getting the first-hand response of the creators of the Sacred Timeline would make more sense.
Loki 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+.
