We’re still anticipating any news on what the second season of Loki has in store for us. Tom Hiddleston will return as the trickster god after landing in what may be a new version of the Time Variance Authority, as no one seems to remember him. He was forced to leave his multiversal Variant Sylvie, played amazingly by Sophia Di Martino, behind who ended up unleashing the multiverse. During a panel hosted by the Royal Television Society, he and the rest of the Disney+ series cast got a chance to look back at the series, where Hiddleston briefly talked about being “a temporary torchbearer” for the role, as he went on to say:
I’ve always thought that. It’s a great role. It’s an archetype, the trickster god, the agent of chaos. I’m just here interpreting that for the time being. Loki has been here for centuries and will be here for centuries more and I’m just stepping into that silhouette for now.Tom Hiddleston
Even if he talked about the temporary time with the character, he did offer a little tease of why they decided to leave viewers with that cliffhanger and what the direction may be going into the second season.
This idea of somehow the [Time Variance Authority] confronting Loki with the shape-shifting nature of his identity and asking him ‘Who are you?’ I found it a new avenue to explore with this character I’ve been playing for a while. It felt original. It didn’t feel like we were repeating.Tom Hiddleston
The ending certainly kept people on their toes and probably left quite the impression with viewers. Everyone he had built a connection with over time has now forgotten who he is. Sylvie is also left in a dark spot after stabbing He Who Remains, and we don’t know if she’ll find a way back to the TVA or remain there. It certainly is going to be a new direction for the series and here’s hoping the wait isn’t too much longer.
