The Serie “Loki” It has come to an end leaving a huge cliffhanger not only to its second season but also to what very possibly are the future events that we see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it seems that not all of this was foreseen in the initial plans for the series.
In a new series of interviews, the director Kate herron, who not long ago confessed that he will not return for the second season because he always thought this as a kind of film that would last six episodes, has explained that these second season plans came up on the fly, while it has contributed some light to the events of the end of episode 6 of the series.
Sylvie’s genuine attitude
Herron has explained in a new interview why he thinks Sylvie’s betrayal of Loki in the ending doesn’t necessarily mean that her feelings for him aren’t authentic.
Sylvie is something like what our Loki was in Thor, ”says the director. She is driven by revenge, pain and anger, and that’s what he tells her.
The filmmaker adds that in their last moments together, Loki tried to connect with Sylvie and explain that he understands where he is on his journey.
He said, ‘I’ve been where you are, and I just want you to be okay. You’re not going to get what you want. ‘
Unfortunately for Loki, Sylvie hasn’t gotten to that part of her self-healing journey.

The TIE fighter is equipped with an opening cockpit for a LEGO minifigure and 2 spring-loaded shooters that promise plenty of action. Includes a TIE fighter pilot with a blaster pistol, a stormtrooper with a blaster, and an NI-L8 protocol droid.
So she’s not going to see it like that. There was a feeling that she was turning to get the TemPad, but I don’t think that means the kiss isn’t genuine. In my head, it was always a horrible goodbye, really, but the feelings were real.
At first I was not going to have two seasons
Despite the fact that practically from the beginning of filming the rumors of a second season already sounded, and that even the production company after the series pointed to the idea, Herron assures that the initial plan was to do a season.
In the same interview, Herron revealed that his departure before the series’ second season is not something recent. It was always his plan to shoot all six episodes of the first season and finish his time with the project at that point.
I’d say when I joined Loki, it was always going to be those six episodes. We treated it like a movie, and directed it like a movie. We weren’t doing it on the showrunner system. So it was a lot directing these six episodes, and I gave it all my energy and everything I had in my soul and in my heart. I put everything I loved about Marvel into it. So I always intended to do just these six.
For this reason, after the six episodes, he considers that his time with the series is over.
It was such a great compliment and such a delight that as we went through production, Marvel and Disney were like, ‘Oh man. This is excellent, and we want to move on. ‘ So I feel like my part is over, but I’m really excited to see where it’s going to go next.
So I gave everything I have, and it came from a place of love. I really enjoyed working on it, and I look forward to working with Marvel again in the future.. They changed my life, and I love Marvel, as I’m sure people can tell from the number of Easter eggs and references I made throughout it.
That doesn’t mean there wasn’t going to be an open ending. It just seems that everything has changed over time.
When the Multiverse was released, we always knew that there was going to end the story of ‘Loki’. It just came from the fact that everyone was really excited about the work that we had all done. Y it was clearly felt that there was much more way to go with the characters.
Kate Herron also revealed that a cliffhanger ending was developed that was warned of the second season when the story was approved to continue beyond these first six episodes:
As for the end, the one in the AVT, and it goes through, and it’s like, is it in the AVT that we know? We definitely worked on it once we knew the story was continuing. But I think we always intended to ask the characters questions.
The cliffhanger at the end
The season finale ended with a thrilling cliffhanger for the god of deception, revealing that Loki is in an alternate version of TVA in which Kang the Conqueror rules, while Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Huntress B-15 ( Wunmi Mosaku) do not recognize it. This scene has given rise to a lot of comment from fans, as it is not known exactly what interpretation to give it. Alternative timeline? Another dimension? Has reality changed?
Herron is asked about it, but he fails to confirm one way or the other.
The way I see it in my head is that AVT exists outside of space and time, but the reality and everything as we understood it has completely changed in the last minutes. With the ramification of the multiverse, How do we know that AVT still exists that way? We don’t know, and I suppose it’s a great question that will be answered as the series progresses.
But in my head, the intention is that Sylvie thinks she’s sending him back to the AVT, but due to the way time and branches intersect outside the window, Loki has unfortunately been sent to a very different place. So reality has changed just by the nature of what He Who Remains said, and the idea is that he is on this alternative TVA now.
As a curiosity about this ending, Herron revealed that Casey, the AVT receptionist played by actor Eugene Cordero was one of the hunters who head to the armory in the final scene, and is specifically credited as a K-5E Hunter
A Miss Minutes movie
Finally, out of curiosity, Herron has joked that he would love to make a movie about Miss Minutes.
I would love to! The director jokes. That would really be my dream.
