In Marvel Studios' Loki, the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Following his inadvertent escape from the time traveling Avengers, Loki winds up in the Gobi Desert, only to be captured by time agents known as the Time Variance Authority (TVA). He is brought to their headquarters, which is outside the "sacred timeline", and sentenced to "pruning" (e.g. getting erased). However he is saved by an agent named Mobius M. Mobius who asks that he interview him. After some back and forth, learning that he was to die at a later time, and realizing that the TVA is omnipotent, Loki admits to Mobius that his life is unending failure and that he is a villain because he feels that he has to be. Mobius, taking pity on Loki, decides to bring him on as an agent after telling him that another variant Loki has been disrupting timelines.
Loki quickly discovers that his other variant has been hiding in apocalyptic scenarios and he and the TVA chase him down, only to discover that the variant is a female version of him who goes by the name Sylvie. Loki learns that Sylvie was taken by the TVA as a child and has been trying to get revenge on them by dismantling them. She further reveals to Loki that the agents are all actually variants who have been taken from their lives and forced to work for the TVA. Loki begins to realize that he is falling in love with her and warns Mobius, who later tells Hunter B-15, that the TVA has been lying to them. Judge Ravonna Renslayer, Mobius' superior, realizes what is happening and has Mobius pruned and tries to have Loki and Sylvie pruned by the Time-Keepers. With B-15's help, they learn that the Time-Keepers are fake and Ravonna prunes Loki.
Loki winds up in the Void where he meets other versions of himself who have all been pruned at different points in time. Sylvie learns that Ravonna wants answers, but when she tries to backstab her, she prunes herself to find Loki. In the Void, Loki (along with Classic, Kid and Alligator versions of himself) meet up with Sylvie and Mobius. Mobius uses a TemPad to get back to the TVA while Loki, Sylvie and Classic Loki battle a giant cloud being called Alioth to find the person responsible for the TVA, though Classic Loki sacrifices himself. Mobius attempts to take on Ravonna, but she packs her things and leaves with the intent to find the actual person behind the TVA.
Loki and Sylvie find a castle and encounter a man simply named He Who Remains who reveals that not only did he create the TVA, but that he also plotted their every move for them to meet him. He explains that he is from a future where he discovered different versions of himself from different timelines, but learned that not all of them were good and so he has been trying to combat them. He offers them two choices: run the TVA for him and keep the other variants at bay, or kill him and face them themselves. While Loki wants to spare him, Sylvie refuses and sends Loki back to the TVA and kills He Who Remains, though she looks unfulfilled from her decision. Loki attempts to tell Mobius and B-15 what has transpired, but they do not remember him and realizes that the TVA is now run by one of He Who Remains' variants; just as he warned.
The clock is ticking in the season finale which finds Loki and Sylvie on a date with destiny.
