Loki Season 01 Episode 02: The Variant Plot Summary and Synopsis

The episode opens with an ambush by the fugitive variant of Loki in 1985, in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The variant posses the TVA group Commander, kills all the others with her help, and drags her into the time portal.

2012 Loki joins a TVA mission to track and capture the rogue variant. He wants assurance that the TVA will let him meet the Time Keepers instead of disintegrating him but Agent Mobius figures out that he is stalling.

Back at the TVA headquarters, Mobius convinces Renslayer to give Loki another chance. Together they begin researching.

Loki figures out that the fugitive variant is hiding in an apocalyptic event like Ragnarok where they can go undetected because nothing they do can change the timeline.

Mobius and Loki go to Pompeii, Italy right before its destruction to prove the theory. It is proved, and they try to find out other events that can be used by the variant.

They use Kablooie candies to narrow it down to a hurricane in Alabama in 2050. TVA agents travel to Alabama, and Loki is paired with Hunter B-15.

The fugitive variant uses mind control to talk to Loki through Hunter B-15 and two men before eventually revealing herself as a female version of Loki.

Mobius with the team finds the TVA commander kidnapped by the Loki variant. She tells them that she gave away the details on how to find the Time Keepers.

Female Loki has a countdown clock connected to the time-reset devices she has been stealing from the TVA. As the clock runs out, the time-reset devices disappear, bombing the Sacred Timeline. This creates a bunch of new timeline branches at different points in time.
