Warning: if you haven't seen the finale episode of Loki, this article contains spoilers so read at your own risk!
The Marvel Cinematic Universe's fourth phase started on a high note with WandaVision and it pretty much gave us our first true taste of what to expect in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
For months now, fans have been speculating that the disparity in the multiverse was caused by Wanda Maximoff herself after Agatha Harkness hinted in the finale episode that Wanda may have unleashed something when she finally transformed into the Scarlet Witch.
Well, if you're a firm believer of that long-standing theory, Loki's finale episode pretty much cleared Wanda's name because as it turns out, she wasn't the one responsible for branching timelines and opening the portal to the multiverse despite her abilities to create her own reality through the hex.
In Episode 6, Sylvie and Loki find themselves inside the citadel where a mysterious man referred to as "He Who Remains" reveals himself as the true mastermind behind the Time Variance Authority. Sylvie is determined to kill him but is warned about the repercussions of her actions should she go that route.
Loki tries to talk some sense into her but Sylvie ends up sticking to her guns and stabs He Who Remains. Little does she know that he was actually telling the truth about several variant versions of himself that have been "reawakened" now that the multiverse portal is wide open.

If you may recall, Episode 2 already teased Sylvie branching the timelines to create a multiverse but it's safe to assume that the TVA was able to prevent something catastrophic from happening. Apparently, the real problems are just about to occur after following Sylvie's actions.
Loki's finale episode is now streaming on Disney+.
