Warning: if you haven't seen the debut episode of Loki, this article contains spoilers so read at your own risk!
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were thrilled when they first learned that Tom Hiddleston will be returning to the franchise with his character Loki getting his own Disney+ series. Despite the fact that we all saw him die at the hands of Thanos in the opening sequences of Avengers: Infinity War, the character's status has remained a mystery to a lot of people considering he's had a history of faking his death. However, Episode 1 of Loki pretty much confirms that the God of Mischief no longer exists in the current MCU timeline.
One would think that with Loki inadvertently messing up with the timeline, he'd be able to change his future. As good as that sounds, apparently, that's not the case and as revealed in Episode 1, there's no way to reverse his death. According to the Time Variance Authority, Loki's demise in Infinity War was meant to happen as was the Avengers traveling back in time to retrieve the Infinity Stones.
Loki found out about his fate through Mobius M. Mobius who showed him his TVA file which pretty much serves as a retrospective of his life. As shocked as Loki is to learn about his eventual demise, he also found out that he was able to develop a good relationship with his stepbrother Thor whom he's always seen as a thorn in his side.
I think it's already safe to say that Marvel Studios nailed one out of the park yet again as the debut episode of Loki generated a lot of buzz online. I gotta say, I had low expectations for the series considering WandaVision set the bar real high but after seeing the premiere episode, I can even go as far as saying that Loki made WandaVision look and feel normal by comparison. There's a lot of intrigue surrounding the series and it's already leaving fans with a lot of questions.
Loki is now streaming on Disney+.
