Welcome back to another thrilling episode of Loki Season 2 Episode 4, where we dive into the mind-bending world of Loki! Today, we’re going to unravel the mysteries and theories surrounding the latest developments in the series, particularly the enigmatic characters of Obi and Victor Timely. If you’re a fan of the series and love unraveling its complex plot twists, you’re in for a treat. So, buckle up, and let’s explore the twists and turns of Loki’s journey as we try to piece together the clues and understand the bigger picture.
Loki and Sylvie’s Plan
At the end of episode 4 of Loki, it seems like everything is about to explode, and everybody is about to die. However, we know that this is not going to be the case because we have two episodes left. In our last video, we covered how Loki and Sylvie are probably going to use the tin pad of He Who Remains to go back in time and try again.
Time Travel in Loki Season 2
We’ve seen a few different TV spots and trailers for Loki season 2 that show us Loki saying, “Alright, let’s try to do this again.” This basically tells us that yes, they are going to go back in time and try to get it right. And it seems like they’re going to do this more than once.
The Role of He Who Remains
The question is, what exactly is going to happen when they get it right? Well, if you’ve been following the channel, we still believe that He Who Remains is orchestrating this entire thing. Everything, including Victor Timley being spaghettified at the end of episode 4 and Loki then having to go back in time in episodes five and six, is a part of He Who Remains’s plan.
Is Obi Working with the Villain?
Obi could be working with He Who Remains and might be helping him return. It’s a theory we hate to say, but it could be true. There’s even a scene in episode 4 where Obi was possibly lying to everybody.
He Who Remains’s Plan
So in this video, we’re going to break down why we think He Who Remains is orchestrating the entire thing and why Obi could be working with him, trying to help him return.
The Return of He Who Remains
Before Loki season 2 even started, we had a few insiders tell us that He Who Remains is going to return and be like a “He Who Returns.” In fact, an insider tweeted, “The writing of Loki season 2 continues to impress. The theme of this season seems to be how cyclical stories and even time can be.”
The Orboros Nature of Relationships
Obi and Victor are cementing the orboros nature of their relationship by meeting each other, and Loki is realizing that he pruned himself in the future. Everything is working in a circle, almost as if it’s all being orchestrated by someone who will return. This brings us back to the concept of the orboros, which is a snake eating its own tail.
He Who Remains’s Orchestration
This is what we’ve been thinking since episode 1. In the Loki season 1 finale, He Who Remains said that he orchestrated everything leading up to where Loki and Sylvie met him at the end of time in the Citadel. He made it all happen, from Loki and Sylvie falling in love to them killing the fake timekeepers and arriving at the end of time.
The Multiversal War
He Who Remains’s plan also involved the multiversal war and the creation of the TVA. He told Sylvie, “See you soon,” which we initially thought referred to his variants. But what if he was referring to himself, and this is all part of his plan to return?
He Who Remains’s Abilities
In the comics, Kang has the ability to transfer his consciousness into another variant before he dies. We believe that this could be what he’s doing or what he has already done before dying in the season 1 finale. The timeline had already started to branch out, creating other variants of him in other timelines.
The Role of Obi
So when he died, he could have transferred his consciousness to one of these variants, and this variant could be trying to return. This variant could be who the insiders are referring to as “He Who Returns.” However, there’s a problem: the TVA might explode. But that’s where we believe Obi could come into play.
Obi’s Relationship with He Who Remains
We know that Obi created the TVA handbook and was with He Who Remains since the very beginning. They have known each other for a very long time, and it’s unlikely that Obi would betray He Who Remains. There’s also a particular scene in episode 4 that could hint at Obi and Victor Timley working together with He Who Remains.
The Handshake Scene
When Obi and Victor Timley are talking about integrating the device Victor created into Obi’s device, they shake hands. The camera focuses on this handshake, which could be foreshadowing that they are working together. It may not be this exact variant of Victor Timley working with Obi, but it hints at a variant of Kang and Obi working together.
Obi’s Possible Betrayal
Why would Obi betray someone he created the TVA with? We don’t think he would. In episode 4, Obi might have lied. He told Victor Timley that he learned everything from a 19th-century inventor named Victor Timley, but we know that He Who Remains created the TVA, not Victor Timley.
The Role of Victor Timley
He Who Remains existed in the 31st century, not the 19th century. So why is Obi telling Victor that he learned everything from a 19th-century scholar? One possibility is that he’s lying as part of He Who Remains’s plan. Another possibility is that his memory was erased, and He Who Remains planted Victor Timley into his life as part of his plan.
The Mystery of Victor Timley
It’s interesting to note that we don’t know how Victor Timley taught Obi. The TVA was created in the 31st century or later, so how did Obi, who was working with the TVA in the 31st century, get influenced by a 19th-century inventor? This doesn’t make sense unless He Who Remains put that information into him after erasing his memory.
Is Obi a Variant of He Who Remains?
Some people think that Obi could be a variant of He Who Remains. While this is an interesting theory, we don’t think it’s true. If Obi were a variant of He Who Remains, then his temporal aura should work for the TVA, but it doesn’t.
The Possibility of Victor Timley Faking Everything
There’s also the possibility that Victor Timley could be faking everything and could be He Who Remains pretending to be a variant. He dies at the end of episode 4, but we know they’re going to go back in time and try again.
The Scene with Loki and the Time Loom
We’ve also seen a promo scene where Loki is the one walking out onto the bridge going towards the time loom, just as he is, with no sudon. Maybe he can survive the temporal energy. This scene doesn’t show Victor Timley, so there’s a scenario where Victor Timley lives.
So there you have it. Our theory on how He Who Remains is orchestrating everything, and how Obi and Victor Timley might be working together to help him return. We’ve looked at various scenes and dialogues that hint at their collaboration and the plans of He Who Remains. Whether or not our theory is true, we’ll have to wait and see how the rest of Loki season 2 unfolds. Don’t forget to like the video, subscribe, and leave a comment with your thoughts and theories.
