One of the most popular scenes in the Disney+ series Loki was not the beginning of the multiverse, Sylvie’s entrance, or the scene with all of Loki’s variants. No, the one that made it to the top memes in 2022 was where TVA agent Mobius declared his love for jet skis. And now, Season 2 of Loki may finally present him with a chance to ride one.
One of the first MCU series to get a green light for a second season, Loki is currently filming Season 2, slated for a release in the first half of 2023. The series follows an alternate version of Loki being captured by the Time Variance Authority (TVA) after he stole the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. He is given the choice of being erased or helping the TVA in averting a multiversal threat that can destroy all sense of reality.
Season 2 will see the return of Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, Sophia DiMartino as Sylvie, Tara Strong as Miss Minutes, and Jonathon Majors as Kan/He Who Remains. Rafael Casal will join the MCU series in an undisclosed role.
An Instagram user, Echo Han, captured a video of Tom Hiddleston acting out a scene in London, the current filming location, thus suggesting more missions out of the TVA headquarters. The location, however, features an ad for “Piranha Jet Skis,” maybe confirming a scene where Mobius will finally accomplish his one true desire of riding a jet ski.
Though Owen Wilson was not spotted in this particular footage, he has likely accompanied Loki on behalf of the TVA to Earth and a specific timeline, just like he had in Season 1. But their close bond might not be the same in Season 2, since this is not the same Mobius Loki has come to trust by the end of Loki Season 1.
At the end of the Season 1 finale, we see He Who Remains’ death, and Sylvie and Loki return to the TVA, though in a different timeline where Kang is the superior of TVA and Mobius does not know Loki.
But since Mobius’ human life has been the key behind his love for jet skis, as he had suggested in a monologue to Renslayer, we can assume this version of Mobius will also share the same admiration of the one object that “is a beautiful union of form and function.”
Loki Season 1 director Kate Herron has made her wishes of including a jet ski scene clear for the upcoming season, but maybe Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have different plans. Maybe, the jet ski will be dangled in front of Mobius and the audience, only for the scene to never see the light of day.
Loki is an American TV series created by Michael Waldron for Disney+ and Marvel. It is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name and is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with events of the series taking place after Avengers: Endgame.
Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki along side new faces like Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Sophia Di Martino, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane, Eugene Cordero and Erika Coleman.
After stealing the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, Loki is apprehended by the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA) and their Time-Keepers. Loki is given a choice between fixing all the timelines he broke with the Tesseract and death at the hands of the TVA.
