The final episode of ‘Loki’ premiered today and featured a character who audiences believe is Lady Loki.
This is the fugitive who was being hunted down by agents of Temporal Variance, presented as a variant of Loki at the end of the first episode.
Played by Sophia Di Martino, the character reveals himself to the original god of cheating (Tom Hiddleston) after tricking AVT agents into a plan to break the sacred timeline.
Since the God of Cheating has a fluid genre, maybe that made it seem like this variant would be Lady Loki.
However, SlashFilm did point out that the credits for the international versions of the episode indicate that it may be a very different character than fans imagine, and not Lady Loki.
In fact, Di Martino is only credited as The Variant in the English versions, but in the Spanish version she is credited as Sylvie.
In the comic, Sylvie Lushton is a human from Oklahoma who gains magical powers after the Asgardians settle there, naming the town New Asgard.
With her powers, Sylvie assumes the mantle of Enchantress (identity that belonged to a witch named Amora) and moves to New York to join the Avengers.
But, unbeknownst to Sylvie, her powers were actually given to her by Loki, who loved the idea of creating a mortal who believed herself a goddess because he was bored.
In addition, Lady Loki has black hair like Loki’s, and Sylvie is blonde, just like Di Martino …
And Marvel wouldn’t change Lady Loki’s hair color, as most of the characters in MCu are faithfully adapted to the comics.
Another interesting detail, rumors indicated that the character of Cailey Fleming (‘The Walking Dead’) would be ‘young Sylvie’, which further reinforces this theory.
But what could that mean for the rest of the series?
If this variant turns out to be Enchanting, that means there is another variant of Loki, the one responsible for evading Sylvie and causing her to begin her quest to destroy the Sacred Timeline.
We still don’t know the identity of the character Richard E. Grant will play, but rumors also suggest he was an older version of Loki.
Ultimately, the series may reveal that Old Man Loki is behind the whole mystery, which could lead to a showdown where the original Loki will fight his older, more dangerous self.
We can only wait to know the answer.
Remember that the next episode will be released on June 23.
Created by Michael Waldron, the series is set after the events of the movie “Avengers: Ultimatum,” in which an alternate version of Loki creates a new timeline.
After stealing the Tesseract, an alternate version of Loki is brought to the mysterious Authority of Temporal Variation (AVT), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, and oversees the timeline. They give Loki a choice: to be erased from existence to be a “time variant” or to help set the timeline and deter a greater threat. Loki finds himself trapped in his own crime thriller, traveling through time and altering human history.
Tom Hiddleston stars in the production. The cast also includes Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant.
