Loki Episode 1 "Glorious Purpose" Synopsis

Episode Written by: Michael Waldron

Episode Directed By: Kate Herron

Following his battle with the Avengers in New York, Loki, God of Mischief was captured and awaiting transport back to Asgard to be punished for his crimes. But, in their search for the infinity stones to defeat Thanos in the future, the Avengers travelled back to 2012 to retrieve the Tesseract.

Fortunately for Loki, during the time heist the Tesseract was dropped at his feet allowing him to escape. Unfortunately this change in destiny altered the “sacred timeline” drawing the attention of the Time Variance Authority. Loki is captured by TVA Hunter B-15 and put on trial for his crimes in front of Juge Ravonna Renslayer.

Meanwhile TVA employee Mobius M. Mobius is investigating a series of murders in the timeline of other TVA agents. He saves Loki from his trial and explains the work of the Time Variance Authority is to uphold the events deemed sacred by three interdimensional beings known as the Timekeepers. As Loki diverged from this timeline he’s now a variant of the original Loki.

Mobius needs Loki’s help to capture the murderer as he believes it’s another Loki variant travelling through time. If Loki helps end the threat a meeting with the Timekeepers is on the table.
