Lady Loki explained: How does Loki episode 2 end?
After tracking down ‘Version’ for a world-ending event in 2050, Loki, Mobius and a TVA squad split up to cover and explore more ground.
Loki is joined by Hunter B-15 (Wunami Mosaku) and the two soon encounter a single male who is needlessly shopping for plants as a big storm hits outside.
When Hunter B-15 comes closer to interrogate him further, however, the male grabs B-15’s arm and appears to transfer his consciousness to him.
Yes, the person hiding inside the man (who transfers himself to the Hunter B-15) is none other than the Loki ‘variant’.
The two versions of Loki verbally lock the horn (while the Loki ‘variant’ continues to transfer himself to other human ships to keep things interesting) before their plan is revealed.
After stealing TVA’s substantial time reset fee – the tools that destroy branch branches from the sacred timeline – Loki ‘Version’ plans to activate them all at once. Many timelines will split off from the sacred timeline, creating a massive spike in Nexus events, breaking reality and possibly leading to a new multiversal war, as described in Episode 1.
Before setting their plan in motion, however, the Loki ‘version’ eventually reveals who they are – Lady Loki. Yes, you read that right: a female version of Loki.
Lady Loki’s reset charges are activated, they travel to different dimensions in time and branch off several branches from the sacred timeline. Lady Loki escapes through her own time travel gate and despite Mobius’ last-ditch efforts to stop her, Loki follows her namesake through the portal, presumably to get to the bottom of who she really is. .
Which actress played the role of Lady Loki?
Sofia Di Martino. The British actress, who has appeared in TV shows including Silent Witness, was rumored to play Lady Loki in Marvel’s latest series, and now we have confirmation that she is.
As Loki’s TV show was being filmed, leaked images on the set showed Di Martino in a very Loki-like outfit. those days, we guessed That’s what Di Martino would be in the series for, and we were glad to see that we were right.
Lady Loki Explained: The Comic Book History of Lady Loki
Lady Loki is a brand new addition to Marvel Comics. Created for the 2008 Thor comic issue, moderated by J Michael Straczynski, Lady Loki is, well, Loki reincarnated in female form.
Lady Loki emerged after Marvel Comics’ version of Ragnarok, and became the primary version of Loki through several other comic stories, including Dark Reign, The New Avengers, and Original Sin.
As it turns out, Lady Loki did not replace the male Loki that comic readers had known since his first appearance in the October 1962 Journey in Mystery #85 comic. lady lokic is Loki and, rather than being one of his many moves, Lady Loki is one of the character’s many personalities.
In turn, it was revealed that Loki is genderfluid. Lady Loki retains Loki’s personality, mischievous ways, abilities, and other traits – the only difference is that this iteration of the character is female rather than male.
It’s part of the character that has been adopted into the MCU as well. as the ending title sequence of episode 1 (and the official Loki Twitter Account), TVA has a file on Loki confirming that the character is genderfluid.
Lady Loki Explained: How Episode 2 Could Set Up the Rest of Loki’s Plot
Judging by the events of Episode 2, we can safely assume that Loki will follow Lady Loki across multiple realities (as we’ve seen in the trailers) to find the reason behind her universe-ending plan.
Our guess is that TVA has betrayed Lady Loki and she is seeking revenge by destroying the so called sacred timeline.
After all, there’s something shady about TVA. Maybe he offered Lady Loki the same deal that Möbius offered to Loki (an audience with the Time Keepers) and then reneged on that deal when he used Lady Loki for his need. was.
If so – and this is purely speculation on our part – we could see a tug of war between Lady Loki and TVA, for Loki’s loyalty.
Loki will know that, if he crosses the TVA, he will likely lose the opportunity to speak with the Time Keepers. There’s also the fact that TVA would banish them from existence, so theoretically, it’s in their best interest to remain loyal to them.
However, Loki is a planner – so Lady Loki, by definition, must be too. Hiddleston’s Loki could later be persuaded to join his cause instead, enlist his help in creating multidimensional mayhem, and they could somehow rule the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse (MCM) together.
The trailer for Loki shows the pair having a (potentially idyllic) chat on an unknown planet. Of course, we don’t know when this conversation will happen in Loki’s TV show, but for all intents and purposes, it seems decent enough. If so, it could be when Loki joins forces with Lady Loki to take down TVA.
Lady Loki Explains: Is Di Martino Playing a Different Character?
Alternatively, it could be that Di Martino’s character is not actually Lady Loki.
As of the end credits of Episode 2, Di Martino is playing a character named Sylvie – and this person is completely different from Lady Loki in Marvel Comics.
How do we know that Di Martino’s character is called Sylvie? Take a look at the roster of voice actors dubbed Castellana at the end of Episode 2. You’ll see someone else (Alyssa Bouter) voicing Di Martino’s character, called Sylvie:
Wait, how do we know that the bouter voice actor is the dub for Di Martino? Take a look at the German-language dub image below, and you’ll see Sonja Spuhl voices a character named ‘Variant’. It must be a character similar to Sylvie, as both characters are second only to Loki in their cast order importance:
If Di Martino’s character is called Sylvie, there is only one Marvel Comic character that can be referred to: Sylvie Lashton, aka Enchantress.
In the comics, Sylvie is an average teenage girl living in Oklahoma, until the Asgardians move their Asgard home to the same state. Not long after, Sylvie awakens with magical powers and adopts the pseudonym Enchantress – a character who, like Loki, is an anti-hero/villain.
As it turns out, Sylvie derives her powers from Loki, which include sorcery, teleportation, and telekinesis. Watching the first two episodes of Loki, we’ve seen Di Martino’s character use similar abilities to keep people close to him and, well, make his hands go green.
It is highly plausible, that it is the sorceress and not Lady Loki, as we previously suspected. As far as we know, in the comics the Enchantress doesn’t wear a crown with two horns (a la Loki), but Di Martino Loki is playing such a major accessory in Episode 2.
It certainly muddy the waters about who Di Martino is actually playing. Whatever happens, or whoever Di Martino is portraying, it will be interesting to see how the rest of Loki’s TV series plays out. There are more twists on the way and we can’t wait to see what happens.
