    LOKI: This is nonsense. More tricks. This never even happened.

    MOBIUS: Not to you. Not yet. Look, the TVA doesn't just know your whole past. We know your whole life, how it's all meant to be. Think of it as comforting.

    It shouldn't...otherwise, there wouldn't be a variant timeline; there would just be a "wrong" one.
    Of course they're assuming that what they know is the "right" timeline really IS the right one! :D

    (I :D, but I suspect that will be a major part of the story...)

    So far this looks to be another winner for Marvel and D+. Looking forward to seeing where this mini series takes us.

    Why does Loki go off to the Gobi desert? He can't control where he goes when he grabs the Tesseract?

    Reading some reviews the reason seems to be unknown for now.

    I'm guessing it doesn't matter. All that matters is he left New York and went off on a new branch and the TVA found him and captured him. But we'll see if the where he went first comes back into play.

    I think this is what is happening too. There's a multiverse already happening, the TVA is just bending them all to be parallel or be the same to what they call "The Sacred Timeline" and maybe the little purple grenade thing destroys the whole timeline.

    So that could be Peggy Carter, just from another timeline that we haven't seen so we wouldn't be aware of what decision made her a variant.

    Of course this leads to the TVA going out and cleaning up all the variants that the Avengers caused by messing with time, but not the Avengers themselves since them messing with time is part of the Sacred Timeline.

    At least this explains why there weren’t a bunch of forked timelines after Endgame.


    On a side note, I find that it amusing that the all powerful Mcguffin stones, which drove the plot for the last few phases of the MCU, are simply powerless trinkets in a drawer.

    Infinity stones are just powerless within the TVA.

    I really like that 1970s retro-future aesthetic of the TVA office.

    I would have liked to see a few other of these Loki-Thor bets.

    Agreed. The production design, with futuristic tech controlled by devices that look like they were built 50 years ago, is very cool.

    Was Loki the second gunman on the grassy knoll?

    Did Loki cause Ameila Earhart to crash?

    It has a MiB sort of feel set wise.

    Cap returned the stones, so wouldn't there be no variants? And the TVA knows this, so they didn't interfere.

    I feel like they only clean up major problems. Sure Tony Stark shouldn't be visiting his dad in the 70's, but it didn't cause any problems, so they leave it alone.

    If somebody in the normal timeline was carrying the briefcase, and Hulk smashed him and the tessaract spilled out near Loki, that wouldn't be a variance.

    Because the briefcase was snatched by future Tony, who shouldn't have been there, than it is a variance.

    I'm going solely by the cartoon that Loki watched. When the yellow dude created a fork, he left the sacred timeline and followed the fork. The TVA agents showed up and took him away. The yellow dude then reappeared in the sacred timeline, just past the point of the fork, and continued on his happy way. I think that's the "reset" part of what they do. No explanation is given about exactly what that means.

    I think the TVA is located outside of the universe, and the stones have no power there.

    Yes, but that means the TVA has the power to negate the power of all 6 stones.
