Loki season 2 episode 1 fans react to potential Kang & Ravonna Renslayer romance, God of Mischief time slipping to past, present & future, OB & Mobius’ comedic moments & more

Who pruned the God of Mischief in the future? that’s the question on fans’ minds since streaming Loki season 2 episode 1. The debut episode quickly reels in viewers to the stakes at hand, the aftermath of killing He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) has changed the past as the scared timeline continues to branch. Can Kang be dealt with and is Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) romantic involved with the big bad? How did Sylvie appear in the future and why is there a telephone ringing at the TVA? here’s a recap of the puzzling moments being discussed by fans on social media.

The stunning visuals during the temporal loom scene, the critically acclaimed fast-paced narrative as General Dox leads TVA’s hunt for Sylvie & the moving performance of the main cast altogether helped Loki season 2’s premiere turn out to best entry since Moon Knight. Episode 1 is all about a harrowing time slipping Loki (Tom Hiddleston) on the search for Sylvie. But there are more problems at hand for Loki, Mobius,  Ouroboros a.k.a OB and Hunter B-15 as they race against time to grapple with the situation at hand.

The truth shall set you free and that begins with Loki shattering the lie centered around the existence of Time Keepers. Tom Hiddleston’s frantic portrayal of Loki comes in the clutch in reminding viewers of the aftermath of season 1’s finale. Moreover, watching Loki’s time slip throughout the episode not only depicts the gravity of the situation but also balances out with humor thanks to Mobius & OB.

Staying in tune with season 1’s tone, The friendly banter between Loki & Mobius is one of the highlights of Episode 1. In fact, watching Mobius put his trust in Loki during the Temporal Loom sequence goes to show the growth of their relationship stands at the point of bromance.

Loki season 2 episode 1 also parallels with season 1’s debut segment. The premiere season’s episode showed Sylvie appearing in a gloomy field at Salina, Oklahoma in 1858 while the follow-up season’s first episode shows her appearing on a field in Broxton, Oklahoma in 1982.

Speaking of references, there is a nod to Moon Knight in the premiere segment. During Loki’s first interaction with Casey, the TVA agent can be heard listening to the ‘Staying Awake’ Podcast that Steven Grant listened to in Moon Knight.

Loki season 2 episode 1 also adds more weight to theories suggesting Kang could be romantically inclined toward Renslayer. In the comics, The Conqueror variant sought her as his love interest to the point of sparing her although Ravonna stood against him with the Avengers.

The taping played by Loki in the past indicates Kang’s potential desire for Ravonna Renslayer, “For us, For All Time”, says Kang and the TVA Judge responds, “Always”. “Ravonna Renslayer, you are quite a Marvel. I will be proud to lead with you.”

Interestingly, the newcomers of the series – General Dox and Judge Gamble of the TVA council do not seem to be on the same page after hearing out Loki’s revelation in the War Room. Kang has been erasing memories of all the variants working at TVA agents. While General Dox acknowledges the Time Keepers are fake but continues to believe their warnings were real. Moreover, her close relationship with Hunter X-5 (Rafael Casal) also adds more mystery and Hunter B-15’s reaction says it all.

Let’s hope Loki season 2 episode 2 offers more answers on the consequences of killing the Kang variant, He Who Remains when it arrives next Thursday on Disney Plus.
