In Loki S1E4
In Loki S1E4, Loki and Sylvie await death on Lamentis. But somehow, they create a Nexus event that alerts Agent Mobius and Hunter B15 to their location. On Ravonna Renslayer’s orders, Minutemen take Loki & Sylvie into TVA custody. But the TVA is beginning to show cracks. Sylvie eventually enchants Hunter B15 and shows her memories of her former life, which shake B15 to her core. Meanwhile, Mobius presses Renslayer for information about Hunter C20. Renslayer stonewalls Mobius, informing him that C20 is dead. Mobius then has another round of interrogation with Loki, who has been doing some important introspection in an unpleasant time loop. Mobius recognizes Loki’s feelings for Sylvie, and Loki is finally honest and forthcoming with Mobius, whom he’d considered a friend.
Loki tells Mobius he and the rest of the TVA employees are all prisoner variants, and Mobius immediately investigates this claim. After a tense confrontation with Renslayer, Mobius steals her TemPad and discovers the truth about Hunter C20 and the TVA. Mobius and Loki finally ally, but before they can work together, Renslayer has Mobius pruned. Unbeknownst to the judge, Hunter B15 partners with Sylvie. So when Renslayer presents Loki & Sylvie to the Timekeepers, but B15 intervenes. Together, Loki, Sylvie, and B15 take down Renslayer and her Minutemen, only to discover that the Timekeepers are just robots. As a devastated Sylvie and Loki try to come to terms with this revelation, Renslayer prunes Loki. Rather than prune Renslayer in kind, Sylvie keeps her alive for answers. In a mid-credit scene, Loki is alive somewhere, with four other Loki variants showing up to help him.
Loki is Marvel’s third Disney+ show, continuing Phase 4 of the MCU. Loki stars Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Sophia DiMartino, and Richard E. Grant.
