Disney+ has been killing it with their Marvel series. I knew Loki would be the same and, boy, are they proving me RIGHT! I started theorizing after episode one but, after watching Loki Episode 2, I made sure we worked that in as well. What is going on with the Time Keepers? What does the BIG reveal of episode 2 mean for the future of the Sacred Timeline and the multiverse? I think I know how all of this madness will END! Let's go!

    was the ending of ep: 2 ever resolved? I’m pretty sure it went no where and was just a lazy way of building a cliffhanger.

    Yeah, the "Sacred Timeline" is kinda on the nose of calling out the more continuity-demanding fans. Also, on the topic of the Darkhold, Ghost Rider Robby Reyes literally says it's from a different dimension and should stay there. Maybe the one from agents of shield isn't our darkhold.

    So I guess we are all glad that the TVA didn't consider the Avengers "unsnap" as a nexus event or a significant alteration to the timeline. It all worked out wonderfully well!

    Let’s be honest, if all this is/were true then Disney and marvel is just mocking us fans again. Simply because some fans want to keep things consistent. Nobody is against some of the ideas they want to do. We fans just would prefer they keep it separate from the main universe so it doesn’t ruin already established characters. But marvel already shows they don’t care about that.

    yeah a lot of literature is about how authors want to write a secret message that doesn't go anywhere only smart people really get the message if you write to send a message your better off being a politician or just be literal in your media of choice

    let''s be honest ... Ired similiar stories , But for HTTYD , If Hiccup is Hicca Hika is more gentle understanding open mindedthan Hiccup . If Astrid is the role she is more clumbsy If is The dragon or even reverse role even more clumbsy even better in mind than peers .

    Ok.. I have questions. Are the timelines and multiverses separate? And if they aren’t, how would a timeline become a separate universe? I noticed during the clock ladys speech that the timelines (or universe) clash. Does that mean that at that specific time both timelines that clash did the same thing or they clashed in a way like in Spiderman into the spider-verse? Also, if timelines and universes are different, do the branched timelines eventually comeback to the original and then branch back out like a wave? Or do they just never come back? And if they never come back, then would that mean that there would never be a “sacred timeline” or main timeline. This really is complicated.

    Another reason TVA is probably bad: they're not using their powers to simply keep different universes from fighting each other. Wouldn't that be the more heroic thing to do?

    The time keepers are Disney. They are telling us what stories are true. They have wiped unwanted timelines before. Stars legends didn't fit in their sacred timeline either.

    The thing that pisses me is that Miss Minute is animated on twos, they should’ve put just a bit more money into that character, the technology is there.

    • lolz

      @Xavier Woodard it’s stylized like a 80’s cartoon character, yet unlike the intro animation of TVA it’s animated in 24 frames a second instead of 12, a minor detail sure but it still annoys me nonetheless.

    Obviously. You're kinda slow, aren't you? The TVA (TV Audience) being a giant indication...they beat us over the head with it in the very first episode. No subtlety, at all. Not to mention "the sacred timeline" and Loki's purpose in it.

    there is a multiverse, but there is one timeline for the whole multiverse, they said that but it is easy to miss, and doctor strange already proved that the marvel multiverse currently exists, but the whole multiverse follows a strict timeline edit: oh and it was also proved in agents ofshield a thousand times

    doctor strange 1 actually mentions the multiverse, they use it to refer to the collection of various dimensions in the single universe, IE, where dormamu came from, and the line "news of the ancient ones death will spread through the multiverse" at the end of the movie. MoM will most likely deal with this kind of multiverse, considering what we know of the plot is its another dormamu-like being trying to invade, rather than dealing with multiple timelines of the same events

      Not quite. In the comics Thanos had a helicopter that he used to get around.

    I feel like the timekeepers answer to why they have to protect the timeline is the ultimate “Because I said so”
