'Loki' finale: Fans really hate Loki and Sylvie kiss, say 'never wanna watch them kiss ever again'
This kiss was, of course, weird because of the simple fact that Sylvie is a variant of Loki himself
In the final episode of ‘Loki’, the Disney+ series created by Michael Waldron, starring Tom Hiddleston, the titular lead and Sylvie’s (Sophia Di Martino) kiss seems to have broken the internet. This kiss was, of course, weird because of the simple fact that Sylvie is a variant — a person who does something they are not supposed to in the so-called “Sacred Timeline” and thus branches away into an alternate version of events — of Loki.
‘Loki’, which premiered on June 9, concluded on July 14. Episode 6, the finale, titled ‘For All Time. Always’, written by Waldron and Eric Martin and directed by Kate Herron, saw Sylvie dare Loki to just kill her and take his throne, which he refused to do. Loki appeared in front of He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors) saving him from Sylvie’s blade. He dropped his sword, assuring her he knew what she was going through and what she was feeling.
Loki told her that he had been where she was and that he did not want to hurt her, and he did not want the throne — he just wanted her to be alright. Both were overwhelmed with emotions when Sylvie dropped her machete, and they pulled each other close for a passionate kiss.
When they finally let go, Sylvie looked into Loki’s eyes and told him that she was not him. She opened a Time Door behind Loki with He Who Remains’ TemPad and pushed him back as he tumbles through a Time Door into the TVA’s Time Theater. He sprinted for the Time Door but it closed on him.
Fans had some things to say about this whole business. “I just know Ragnarok Loki would never kiss Sylvie,” said one fan. Another fan tweeted, “Sylvie kissed Loki to make Loki vulnerable enough to get him away from her so she could k-word Kang, do u really think they wanted to kiss themselves? they did it so she could get to where she wanted to be. isn’t that what Loki's do, do the extreme to get what they want?”
One fan noted, “if it brings you any comfort Sylvie ONLY kissed Loki because she wanted to push him away, it was just a distraction, she knew what she was doing.” And another fan wished: “So…. I never wanna watch the Loki and Sylvie kiss ever again.” Yet another fan said, “not to be dramatic but the Sylvie Loki kiss is real steve’s ending level bad for me,” possibly referring to the end of ‘Avengers: Endgame’.

Following the finale, Di Martino told Marvel.com: “[Sylvie’s] been on her mission her whole life to get to whoever is behind the TVA, who robbed her life from her, and who took that little girl. The anger that she had as a little girl has just been growing and growing and growing her whole life, to this point, where the guy who caused it, in her eyes, is standing right in front of her. She thinks that killing him is going to make her feel better. That feeling in that moment is stronger than any feelings she has for Loki.”
“He says something really nice to her before they kiss,” Di Martino said. “Loki basically says, ‘I've always hurt everyone I've always been close to. I'm a horrible person, but you've changed me because I care about you, and I want you to be okay.’ And for someone to say, ‘I want you to be okay,’ it’s such a nice thing to hear, especially for someone who's damaged as Sylvie. It sort of breaks her heart a little bit because she just wants herself to be okay as well. For someone else to acknowledge that, and to see her in that way and to just see her, is so powerful.”
She added, “She still has to see her plan through to the end. The kiss, for me, was like a final sort of thank you and goodbye. It's been fun, dude, but at the end of the day, I'm not you and I've got a mission, and I'm going to see this through, on my own, to the end. So see ya.”
