Loki’s head writer, Michael Waldron, has revealed that the Loki series currently airing on Disney Plus is really about a love story between Loki and Sylvie.
So, what that means is that the show is about Loki having a love affair with himself, which is very strange.
Waldron revealed this rather disturbing bit of information during a recent interview with Marvel.com.
During the interview, Waldron explained how and why they ended up coming up with this rather twisted romance between two versions of the same character.
Honestly, hearing him talk about it, it all starts to make perfect sense.
Loki will fall in love with Sylvie… aka, himself

Here’s what Michael Waldron had to say about Loki and Sylvie’s romance in the Loki series:
That was one of the cruxes of my pitch [for the series], that there was going to be a love story. We went back and forth for a little bit about, like do we really want to have this guy fall in love with another version of himself? Is that too crazy? But in a series that, to me, is ultimately about self-love, self-reflection, and forgiving yourself, it just felt right that that would be Loki’s first real love story.
Waldron then added:
The look that they share, that moment, [it started as] a blossoming friendship. Then for the first time, they both feel that twinge of, ‘Oh, could this be something more? What is this I’m feeling?’ These are two beings of pure chaos that are the same person falling in love with one another. That’s a straight-up and down branch, and exactly the sort of thing that would terrify the TVA.
