fail For this week’s episode of Loki Follow.
Who is the cloaked figure at the end of Loki episode 1? Well, if you were paying attention to the first episode of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe show, you’d know the answer: It’s Loki! but which which One? That is the key question at the heart of this first episode. And thanks to all the casting news we’ve seen for the show, we think there are some possibilities of who it could be.
Loki is expected to largely follow our displaced god of mischief in Episode 2 as he helps TVA track down the second version. Self bottom. We think there are two main possibilities at the end of this episode — below, we’ll talk you through them.
Spoilers follow for Loki episode 1 — but we’ll also discuss arguably spoiler-y things like set photos from the show, so if you want to go episode 2 clean, we’d recommend skipping and just watching the episode.

What do we know about the runaway Loki variant?
Here’s important background information for you to know about this other loci. When we are introduced to Owen Wilson’s Möbius, we are in Aix-en-Provence, France in 1549. We learn that this TVA Minutemen Squad kill is the sixth in a week – at the end of the episode, we see a seventh.
When Möbius asks a living child who has committed the murder, they point to a stained-glass image of Satan dressed in green – our first clue is Loki. We also learn that this version of Loki gave the child some gum, which had ‘confession’ written on it.
At the end of the episode, Mobius gives Loki a task: this runaway ‘version’ — that is, someone who’s gone out of their proper way on the MCU’s “sacred timeline” — is killing TVA’s Minutemen. Mobius reveals the type of hunting they’re doing is bottle gourd
At the end of the episode, another TVA squad arrives in Salina, Oklahoma in 1858 and scans a futuristic-looking sword, explaining that it dates from the beginning of the third millennium. The group finds oil on the ground, and believes it to be a time traveler who wants to get rich.
Except, it’s not – a figure in a cloak drops a torch and sets fire to oil, burning TVA agents alive. The episode ends.
Possibility 1: It’s Lady Lokik
There are two actors who have been confirmed to be a part of Loki whose characters are yet to be revealed – Richard E. Grant and Sofia Di Martino. These mysterious cloaks provide our two main possibilities for Loki, other than the fact that this Hiddleston may play a different version of his character.
We think Lady Loki is the most obvious choice for cloaked figure identification. For one, Di Martino was spotted last year wearing a dark outfit that could possibly belong to Loki—she was on set in an outdoor setting at the same time as Owen Wilson and Tom Hiddleston. We won’t be posting the image here if you want to keep the dress revealed for future weeks.
In the comics, Lady Loki has a long history, but the modern incarnation was introduced only a decade ago, and is a fairly familiar element of modern Marvel iconography.
Another big clue: a teaser for the show that included Loki’s TVA file listed the god of mischief’s penis as ‘fluid’.

We think the set photos, combined with this description, mean that Lady Loki is likely the villain of the series — or at least, the antagonist of these early episodes, as our Loki and Mobius track down this figure.
Possibility 2: It’s Old Lokic
The other obvious substitute for this loci is an earlier version played by Richard E. Grant. While it’s entirely possible that Tom Hiddleston will play double duty in this series as both an antagonist and villainous version of himself, the more dramatically interesting possibility here is that the series’ villain is a distorted, aged version of Loki whom We know very well. Some have assumed that Grant may play the role of King Loki from the comics.
It has been suggested that this evil Loki has a long history, that he has been traveling through time while wreaking havoc, and that he has mastered an assassin enough to kill an entire squad of TVA agents at one time. can. Surely an old Loki would be a lethal one?
If that doesn’t happen here, we wouldn’t be surprised to see Grant as an older Loki in later episodes. The cheekbones and voice would make her a perfect older version of Hiddleston’s character.
Possibility 3: It’s Kid Loki
It is more remote. In more recent history of comics, Loki has aged to a mischievous brat for a series of storylines—and became a fan favorite. Kid Loki will be an interesting element to toss into this series, assuming we’re going to see multiple Loki ‘variants’ throughout this show.
But we think this can be refuted by the fact that the cloaked figure looked tall enough to be an adult — if it was a kid setting fire to the TVA Minutemen, we think it would have been a bit It would have been more clear.
