The season finale of Loki depicts Sylvie in a position where she may finally shape her own destiny, which could lead to her taking on a new title.

While most season finales provide some sense of closure for the characters, Loki’s season finale closes one door to unlock an infinite number of others. Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) finally finds and murders He Who Remains (Johnathan Majors), the man in control of the Time Variance Authority, in the film’s final scenes. This puts in motion a chain of events that leads to the creation of the multiverse and the release of his far more lethal variants. Sylvie is now in his position, with the opportunity to make a difference. This could lead to her renaming herself the Goddess of Stories instead of the Goddess of Mischief.

In the comics, Loki realizes that he has spent the majority of his life under the power of others. As the God of Mischief, his final act of disobedience was to change his name to the God of Stories. He is now free to show the world that he is his own person, free of others’ interference, and capable of authoring his own story, thanks to a new title. In some ways, this connects with Loki’s central subject, which revolves around the concept of free will and how genuinely free it is.

Sylvie spent the majority of her life on the run, so she never had the opportunity to write her own tale. She didn’t have many options after being kidnapped by the TVA at a young age because she always triggered a Nexus event wherever she went. As a result, she frequently sought refuge in apocalypses in order to evade detection. Surprisingly, this meant she was doomed to witness the conclusion of so many stories but never had the opportunity to write her own.

As a result, finding He Who Remains became an obsession for her, and when she does, she realizes that keeping innumerable realities safe means that her own story can’t exist. As a result, she kills him and allows freedom to reign. However, she alienates the one person who cared about her, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), and herself up alone in the Citadel at the End of Time. Sylvie, like He Who Remains, is now in the ideal position to curate the timelines in a way that has never been done before.

She can perform the opposite of leading an assault on the branched timelines, trimming variants, and cutting off new timelines. As the Goddess of Stories, Sylvie now has the power to allow each reality to develop, allowing everyone to tell a story. While the plan appears chaotic, it matches Sylvie’s personality wonderfully, as she feels chaos is an essential force of nature.
