We are just a few days away from the explosive finale of the Disney+ series ‘Loki’ and fans cannot wait to see who is behind all the chaos. Episode 5 gave us some really amazing moments and introduced us to many other variants of the master manipulator.

However, we just do not know who is running the Time Variance Authority (TVA). Is it Kang? Or is there someone else who always wanted to keep a Sacred Timeline because he hates when the timeline gets affected? However, a fan of the Disney+ show has come out with a theory that will completely change the MCU forever and it is related to the real baddie on the series.

A shocking theory about the show comes from a TikTok user named @lyanamacaluso, who reveals the likely person behind the diabolical TVA. According to the theory, the real bad guy on the show might be BARON MORDO. Yes, you heard it right.

Mordo is a character played by Chiwetel Ejiofor in the ‘Doctor Strange’ movie and turned heel at the end of the first movie when he got to know that The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) tampered with time travel. He leaves his sorcerer friends because he feels that whatever they did was a crime against reality. So, creating and running TVA won’t be really out of character for him.

Meanwhile, in the film’s post-credits scene, he says that the world has “too many sorcerers” and vows to correct that problem. With everything that he vowed at the end of the movie, it won’t come as a shock that he created an organization like TVA to control the timeline and maintain strict order throughout the multiverse.

The user also suggested Mordo, with access to all kinds of magic books and sorcery information, could have easily made TVA with the intention of making all the things right what he believes has gone wrong. Another thing that makes this theory interesting is TVA’s motto. Throughout ‘Loki’, we have heard that TVA’s ultimate motto is “For all time. Always.” If you remember the events of the first ‘Doctor Strange’ movie, Mordo says a line which is really similar to TVA’s motto and the line is, “The bill comes due. Always.”

Although it would be really random to just introduce him in the finale, we know that Mordo will be back in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ and it will be really interesting to see an amazing actor like Ejiofor grace the Disney+ show. One thing is for sure, people should never forget an MCU character because you don't know if or when they will be back.

‘Loki’ returns for the season finale on Disney+ on Wednesday, July 14, at 3 am ET.
