The third Marvel Studios show to see the light of day, Loki, ended its inaugural season on Wednesday with a revelatory, explosive episode. The Tom Hiddleston-led series’ finale did not satisfy everybody and a few fans were morose that it didn’t neatly wrap up the plot threads and instead ended with a cliffhanger. The show’s director Kate Herron explained to The Hollywood Reporter, “So the way I see it in my head is that the TVA exists outside of space and time, but reality and everything as we understood it has completely changed in the last few minutes. With the multiverse branching, how do we know the TVA still exists in that way? We don’t know, and I suppose that’s a big question that will be answered as the show goes on.” READ MORE
