Warning: if you haven't seen the latest episode of Loki, this article contains spoilers so read at your own risk!

There's a lot to unpack in Episode 2 of Loki as it finally answered some of our burning questions. Arguably the most important of them all is the identity of the mysterious variant who has been wreaking havoc in the sacred timeline. The debut episode of the series pretty much confirmed that the notorious variant the Time Variance Authority was after is none other than Loki but a different iteration of the God of Mischief.

Episode 2, titled "The Variant" finally unveils the identity of the hooded enigma, and much to the surprise of Laufeyson himself, he doesn't stumble upon the exact same Loki who shares the same physical attributes as him. Instead, he meets a female version of himself. Long before the show started, Lady Loki has been heavily rumored to make her MCU debut in the show, and finally, she reveals herself during the climactic sequences of the episode set in 2050.

Reverting back to his old mischievous ways in an attempt to foil his doppelganger's plans, Loki makes an offer to "Loki" to join him in his mission to take over the TVA and potentially overthrow the Time-Keepers. Lady Loki rejects the offer and reveals that ruling the TVA isn't on her list of priorities. Apparently, she has a more diabolical plan that obviously has something to do with messing up with the sacred timeline.

I'm not gonna lie, as much as Loki is a treat to watch, things are getting a lot more confusing but hopefully, the succeeding episodes will bring clarity as to what exactly happens now that Lady Loki was successful in branching out the timelines.

Loki is now streaming on Disney+.
