Created by Michael Waldron, ‘Loki’ is an MCU superhero series that follows the eponymous character’s escape with the Tessaract, as depicted in ‘Avengers: Endgame.’ Thanos kills the original Loki in ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ and this one’s escape turns him into a Variant, an anomaly that causes the Sacred Timeline to branch out. This garners him the attention of the timeline-monitoring bureaucratic organization Time Variance Authority (TVA), which comes and arrests him. Loki then learns about the TimeKeepers, the entities that apparently control the flow of time itself, and becomes embroiled in the TVA’s pursuit of another Loki Variant.
In episode 4, Loki and Sylvie’s presence on Lamentis-1 causes an unprecedented Nexus Event until they are brought to the TVA headquarters. Loki tells Mobius that the TimeKeepers are lying to him and that he and all the other TVA employees are Variants. Although Mobius initially doesn’t believe him, the former eventually finds out the truth, forcing Ravonna to order his pruning.
Meanwhile, after being enchanted by Sylvie, Hunter B-15 has recognized the truth as well. When Loki and Sylvie are presented before the TimeKeepers, she helps them. Loki and Sylvie fight their way to the TimeKeepers, only to discover that they are mindless androids. Ravonna subsequently prunes Loki, but the post-credits scene reveals that he is still alive. He has been seemingly transported to another world, where he meets four other Loki Variants. If you are curious about what is in store for you in the next episode, this is what we know.

Loki Season 1 Episode 5 Spoilers
In the closing scenes of episode 4, Sylvie defeats Ravonna after the latter prunes Loki, but rather than killing the TVA judge, she decides to interrogate her. In episode 5, Sylvie will likely find out exactly who is running the TVA. Considering how everything is going in the show, it won’t be a surprise if the main antagonist also turns out to be a Loki Variant, who established the Sacred Timeline and created the TVA as a big joke on the entire creation.
Elsewhere, Loki will probably learn why and when the four Variants — Boastful Loki, Kid Loki, Classic Loki, and Crocodile Loki — were pruned. The next episode might shed some light on exactly what pruning is, and in turn, might also reveal Mobius’ fate. We might also learn the nature of the impending danger that one of the Variants is warning Loki about in episode 4’s post-credits scene.
