Since the first episode of of Loki, fans have been wondering why Mobius likes Jet Ski’s? Well in Episode 3 of Loki, just aired today, we found out. It goes without saying that we will be getting into SPOILERS for Loki Episode 3, so!
**Warning! Loki Episode 3 SPOILERS Below**
If you’re still with me then you’ve either seen Episode 3 or don’t care about spoilers. Why Mobius likes Jet Ski’s? Right from the start many fans have speculated that this could be Mobius’ character from his previous life coming through. What if the TVA were not creating by the Timekeepers, but drafted by them? Perhaps this is a memory from Mobius’ life when he either loved riding Jet Ski’s or maybe taught people how to use them.
Mobius seems unwilling to ask the questions about the TVA that Loki naturally was curious about, why? Well, this week we found out. Sylvie revealed to Loki that the TVA were all just variants like the two of them. Somehow we must presume they have had their mind wiped to believe they always worked for the TVA. As Loki exclaims, that means they don’t know they’re variants.
Let’s be fair, I think most fans had begin to doubt the good intentions of the TVA right from the start. It seems, in the absence of further revealing information, that the TVA were created using variants. That means that the TVA was already up and running pruning timelines when they decided to recruit the variants into the TVA itself. This of course is not unlike what happened to Loki. However since Mobius or most of the TVA did not know they’ve had their minds wiped, the idea of recruiting Loki in this way actually felt new to Mobius. One would suspect that Renslayer may be a little more aware, and was perhaps of the original ‘operatives’?
Given the fact we know Kang is coming to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, it seems to easy to place the villain at the center of the TVA conspiracy. Making sure any other timelines bar the one he rules are pruned, Kang is removing potential threats before they happen. But time is funny and the actions of Sylvie last week may be causing that ‘sacred timeline’ to fracture.
It could be that Loki is ultimately responsible for giving the rest of the Universe a chance against Kang finally. This is purely speculation on my part you understand, it remains to be seen if and when Kang becomes a threat. But how cool would it be, if the only reason the Avengers can defeat Kang is because of one mistake in the Endgame time heist that created a ripple effect which also defeated Kang further down the line? Or alternatively, there may really be Timekeepers who were trying to stop Kang existing in the first place?
What do you think of all this. Are you satisfied with why Mobius likes Jet Ski’s pretty much getting answered exactly as fans had speculated? What did you think of Loki Episode 3 overall? Thoughts below if you can.
