Loki Season 2’s producer Michael Waldron in an interview with The Playlist, recently revealed that one fan-favorite character from the first season wouldn’t be returning for the second season. The character in question is Sylvie Laufeydottir, played by Sophia Di Martino.

Since the time Majors’ character was killed by Laufeydottir in the finale, the fans were left wondering what would become of her. After the finale aired, Martino even teased that the character would be left questioning all and harboring some guilt. However, the mystery surrounding what’s next got cleared through the new clip that revealed Tom Hiddleston’s character reunited with Laufeydottir at a 1980s McDonald’s.

Kevin Wright, the executive producer of Loki Season 2, in one of the recent interviews, revealed a conversation he had with actress Sophia Di Martino when they were filming the 6th episode. Talking about Laufeydottir’s mission, he said he told Martino, 

“This character had been on a decades-long, maybe centuries-long revenge mission and the classic trope of those stories is that it’s all-consuming and she’s not thinking about what comes next… Now she has this moment of opportunity, where is she going to go?”

Martino’s response was, “She’d probably be pretty hungry.” Wright further said they were looking for something Sylvie “would never have experienced,” so her walking into McDonald’s in the 1980s seemed to be the best move after killing He Who Remains.

The executive producer expressed initial concerns playfully, saying Mcdonald’s might misconstrue their intentions as mocking or ironic. Later he clarified that the aim was to tell the genuine story—the nostalgic love letter portrayed through the character’s perspective, capturing the novelty and delight.

Sylvie’s Response to Guilt is Pretty Logical

After the elimination of He Who Remains, it would be logical that Sylvie feels adrift. The question of if her decision was correct or whether the opposition of Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki to end an enigmatic figure was valid, can be overwhelming. Probably she found her solace in the ordinary amidst all those cosmic consequences. Now, the biggest challenge here is The God of Mischief’s ability to reignite her resolve.

It is evident that He Who Remains is not the sole Kang Variant they are going to encounter. The confirmed presence of Victor Timely in Season 2, as it was seen in the post-credit scenes of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, hints at more revelations. Either way, Marvel Studios’ approach to Jonathan Majors’s off-screen potential adjustments and controversy remains quite unclear before the premiere of the new season.
