Created by Michael Waldron, ‘Loki’ is an MCU superhero series that follows the escape of the eponymous character with the Tessaract, as depicted in ‘Avengers: Endgame’. Thanos killed the original Loki in “Avengers: Infinity War,” and the latter’s escape turns him into a Variant, an anomaly that causes the sacred timeline to fork. This caught the attention of the bureaucratic surveillance organization of the Time Variance Authority (TVA), which came to arrest him. Later, Loki learns of the existence of the TimeKeepers, entities that apparently control the flow of time, and becomes involved in the search for another variant of Loki through TVA.
In Episode 4, Loki and Sylvie’s presence on Lamentis-1 triggers an unprecedented Nexus event until they are brought to VAT headquarters. Loki tells Mobius that the Time Keepers are lying to him and that he and all the other TVA employees are Variants. Although Mobius doesn’t believe him at first, he eventually discovers the truth, forcing Ravonna to order his removal.
Meanwhile, after being charmed by Sylvie, the B-15 fighter has also recognized the truth. When Loki and Sylvie meet the Timekeepers, she helps them. Loki and Sylvie struggle to catch up with the Time Keepers, only to discover that they are mindless androids. Ravonna then prunes Loki, but the post-credits scene reveals that he is still alive. Apparently, he has been transported to another world, where he encounters four other variants of Loki. If you’re curious what to expect in the next episode, here’s what we know.

Loki Season 1 Episode 5 Spoilers
In the last scenes of episode 4, Sylvie defeats Ravonna after the latter cuts Loki, but instead of killing the TVA judge, she decides to question him. In episode 5, Sylvie will likely find out who runs TVA. Considering how everything plays out in the series, it wouldn’t be surprising if the main antagonist also turned out to be a variant of Loki, who established the sacred timeline and created the TVA to make a great joke on all of creation.
Elsewhere, Loki will likely learn why and when all four variants were removed: Loki the swordsman, Loki the kid, Loki the classic, and Loki the crocodile. The next episode could shed some light on what exactly pruning is and could also reveal Mobius’s fate. We could also learn the nature of the impending danger that one of the variations warns Loki of in the post-credits scene from Episode 4.
