Loki: Mobius Loving Josta and Jet Skis Hints At His True Origins

The third original series of the MCU on Disney+ starts with Loki from the Battle of New York escaping the Avengers headquarters with the Tesseract during the time heist of Avengers: Endgame. But as he veers off the timeline, Loki is apprehended by the Time Variance Authority. The TVA is an organization created by the Time Keepers, sworn to protect the sacred timeline. Its members oversee the proper flow of time and dispose of variants to prevent new branches aka alternate universes being created. 

When the 2012 Loki is about to be disposed to rectify the timeline, Agent Mobius emerges on time and recruits him for a bigger purpose. He tries to understand the psyche of the God of Mischief and works with him to catch a more evil variant. During their research and brainstorming, Loki constantly tries to learn more about the origin of TVA and the Time Keepers. But he keeps failing to get access to the confidential records of the mysterious organization. It is indeed eyebrow-raising why the TVA is hiding its records of creation. Even Agent Mobius seems to be less informed about how everything started. He just knows it exists, but has no clue about how and when.

Things got more intriguing when the abducted TVA Hunter C-20 kept repeating “it’s real” and asked to go home. While the other TVA agents assumed that she was babbling from losing her mind, her words made a lot of sense to the viewers. It is clear that she isn’t referring to the TVA as her home. Could that imply that these agents were not created but stolen and mind-controlled?

Just like C-20, Agent Mobius could have suppressed memories that are manifesting through his habits and interests. His liking for jet skis and Josta could be navigated back to his life before becoming a TVA agent. Mobius drinking Josta, a cola from the ‘90s, every day and calling the jet skis“awesome” might have deeper layers underneath. 

If the TVA is abducting its agents and erasing their memories, some remaining elements of Mobius’ former life are still lingering. Perhaps, Loki’s suspicions do make sense, and there is more to the TVA than what they led on. If all this is true, then the TVA doesn’t have enough powers to “create” its members. The show is yet to reveal the mystery of the Time Keepers and the TVA, and why the Sacred Timeline is considered the original universe.
