Loki Season 01 Episode 06: For All Time. Always. Plot Summary and Synopsis
Loki and Sylvie enter the Citadel at the End of Time. There, Miss Minutes relays an offer from her master, “He Who Remains”, to return Loki and Sylvie to the Sacred Timeline, while offering Loki rulership and Sylvie happiness. The duo reject the offer and are greeted by He Who Remains.
At the TVA headquarters, Judge Ravonna Renslayer receives information sent by He Who Remains via Miss Minutes.
As Renslayer prepares for a mission, she is confronted by former analyst Mobius M. Mobius, and both accuse each other of betrayal. Mobius attempts to prune Renslayer to stop her from leaving but is overpowered. Renslayer leaves to search for “free will” while Hunter B-15 is pursued by other Troops in 2018 at Fremont, Ohio. Hunter B-15 reveals a variant version of Renslayer, a school vice principal, to prove that the TVA employees are variants.
Loki is shocked that He Who Remains is “just a man”. Sylvie attempts to kill He Who Remains, but he teleports away using a TemPad. He Who Remains tells them he has foreseen the past, present, and future and thus can anticipate their attempts to kill him. He Who Remains explains the TVA’s origins.
On Earth during the 31st century, variant versions of himself discovered alternative universes and contacted each other. Some variants of himself tried to conquer other universes, leading to a multiversal war. He Who Remains harnessed Alioth to end the war, isolated his timeline, and created the TVA to prevent further branches.
As he has grown weary, he offers Loki and Sylvie a choice — kill him, end the singular timeline and risk another multiversal war sparked by his variants, or succeed in leading the TVA and managing the timeline. He identified them as the best candidates to replace him and thus guided them to reach him.
He reveals that they have reached the point where he no longer knows the future, as the timeline begins to diverge.
Sylvie tries to kill him while Loki duels her to prevent a multiversal war. Loki pleads that he wants Sylvie to be safe, and they kiss. Sylvie uses the Time Pad to send Loki back to TVA headquarters. She kills He Who Remains, unleashing a multiverse with timelines that cannot be pruned.
