The series finale of Loki Season 2, indeed, left a lot of room for speculation. The ending gave its viewers more puzzles to solve than a conclusion. The Disney+ series is yet to get a confirmation for a third installment, but with the success of the franchise, there might be hope.

As usual, many fans discussed and postulated their own theories about the latest happenings in the previously concluded season. With He Who Remains now gone and Loki finally getting his much-coveted throne, what happens next?

MCU Loki Theory Suggests Giant Time Loop

A fan from Reddit postulated a theory that the space-time control is just a giant loop and that Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Jonathan Majors’ Kang are trapped inside it. The user shared:

We see Renslayer at the end of time or whatever that place is called where pruned stuff goes. We don’t see it on camera, but we can assume that thing she sees is Alioth. But this time, we see it as purple flashes on her face. Purple being He Who Remains’ signature color on his robes.”

Fans first witnessed Alioth in green hues, symbolizing the god of mischief’s color. At the end of the second season, he finally gets his wish: to be burdened with a glorious purpose. The theory continued:

We first meet Alioth when Loki is pruned in season 1. Alioth is GREEN. Loki’s signature color. And now Loki has become the successor of He Who Remains he watches over the timelines even though it’s in a different capacity.”

The user concluded that it is an endless cycle that could take place within eons and that both of them are basically stuck in the loop.

It’s a giant time loop. Who knows when it’s gonna happen could take billions of years, but eventually, a Kang from one of the Universes will take control of time again, and Loki will become Alioth like we first saw.”

Only time will tell if this theory can be validated, perhaps when the third season finally gets the green light. For now, many Marvel fans have been sharing their own theories on social media.

The most asked question now that Season 2 has wrapped up is what the future of the series looks like. Head writer Eric Martin said in his interview with Cinemablend:

We approached this as like two halves of a book. Season one, first half. Season two, we close the book on Loki and the TVA. Where it goes beyond that, I don’t know. I just wanted to tell a full and complete story across those two seasons.”

The road to that bittersweet ending was not an easy tread. Season 2 had a lot of roadblocks before it got the go signal. With that statement from the show’s writer, it means that the third installment is still a long way to go.
