New Loki Episode Explains Where TVA Agents Really Come From

Episode 3 of Loki turns the tables on TVA Agents.


The Time Variance Authority, more commonly known to as the TVA, is in charge of making sure people stay in their lane and don't create multiple universes with their decisions. However, during Episode 3, Sylvie revealed to Loki where the TVA agents really come from, and it's a bit of a trip.

Warning: There are spoilers for Episode 3 of Disney+'s Loki below. If you don't want to be spoiled, turn away now.

While Loki and Sylvie were trying to escape a planet doomed to be destroyed by its orbiting moon, Sylvie revealed some interesting information about where the TVA agents come from. To this point, the audience was to believe the agents were created by the Time-Keepers. That's not the case. TVA agents are actually captured variants. We saw some flashbacks with Sylvie and Hunter C-20, as Sylvie was trying to find out more about the Time Keepers, and this is when Sylvie dropped the news that all TVA agents are variants.

That does bring up doubts about the reptilian Time Keepers now. If they didn't create the TVA agents, do they even exist at all? What's behind those gold elevators? Anyone else want to place bets that this has something to do with The Watchers--or more specifically Uatu--and because The Watchers don't interfere, they've simply plucked some variants from existence to right the timeline? We saw The Watchers very briefly in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so they're already established.

Anyway, that's not all Episode 3 of Loki revealed. During another conversation between Sylvie and Loki, we learned that Loki is bisexual. The series is halfway over believe it or not, and new episodes air on Disney+ on Wednesdays.
