Loki Episode 4 may yet be the best episode especially in terms of the revelations that happened and one of the biggest and possibly the one really changing the game is that the Time-Keepers of the Time Variance Authority are just mere mindless androids, a bunch of fakes. With that, who really created the TVA and what is the real intention behind the organization?
Who is Really Behind the TVA in Loki?
There are various candidates as to who is really behind the creation and function of the TVA and we may or may not have seen the character yet. Whoever that might be is definitely one with so much power to have hatched a plan so grand, it spans across time and space itself, and "for all time, always" has been really thought through that their agents are all variants as well.
Is Kang the Conqueror behind the TVA?
This has been one of the earliest theories that have been buzzing around just before the show officially went into production. The casting of Lovecraft Country's Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror was a questionable move considering that the big bad will be in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania which is scheduled for release in 2023. Such a deal has been made early on and that made everyone speculate that he would make an appearance on Loki.
Considering that a character so powerful has never made his debut yet he is already considered as the person behind the mess, it is telling of how strong this villain is. In support of this theory, in the comics, Kang is heavily connected to Ravonna Renslayer and with her being a judge in the series, it's not far that this theory may actually be true. But for what purpose, that is something beyond what we saw.
Is Miss Minutes behind the TVA?
Absent on two consecutive episodes, Miss Minutes has been an adorable character and she looks harmless and fine in her appearances. However, most of the time, it is the quiet ones or the least usual which causes the biggest troubles. But why suspect her? Here are the reasons.
First, she is basically the one to introduce the whole backstory of the TVA. That's much to fabricate and she delivered it all convincingly. Second, it may or may not be connected to Marvel at all but it seems to be, she has an account on Twitter that shows her sketchy tweets especially one which says she said she would burn everything to the ground once she escapes the TVA in Nordic runes.
While that seems to show that she is a prisoner, having said that, Miss Minutes may really be the one manning the wheel. She can exist in both holograms and computers and as much as we have seen at the TVA, people work behind the screens. Could she be controlling all of it?
Is Another Loki Variant behind the TVA?
This one is quite possible considering that this version of Loki aims to be the superior one and therefore, he creates the TVA to eliminate all those of his kind. It is such an elaborate plan but it could make sense considering that Loki is definitely narcissistic and power-hungry. It also justifies the time-hopping scheme and the Time-Keepers are basically androids.
Who do you think is behind the TVA's function and creation? Let s know your thoughts!
