'Loki' Episode 6 Theory Solves a Major Mystery in the Finale

Mischief managed

“The birthplace of all that was… all that is… and all that can still be…”

With only one more episode in its first season, Marvel’s Loki still has big questions to answer.

Few mysteries feel so urgent, on the way to the show Season 1 Finale, like the one with that strange castle that was introduced late this year Loki Episode 5.

Hidden behind Alioth, the castle in question sits atop a giant cosmic asteroid, and may or may not be true the secret leader of the Time Variance Authority has been hiding all the time. Loki‘s fifth episode concluded with Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) uncovering the castle and embarking on a journey towards it, promising that the finale will reveal who is waiting inside.

Now, just before the Loki finale on Wednesday premiere, a fan theory may have already revealed the truth about the show’s strange new location.

The other side of Alioth — There have been a lot of of fan theories about the castle shown at the end of Loki Episode 5. Some Leading Theories Claim It Could Be Castle Doom or Castle Limbo, while others speculate it could be an original creation.

Assuming that last option is wrong and the castle is based on a pre-existing Marvel comic location, chances are Loki Episode 5’s castle could even be a place Loki himself visited in the comics.

What if it’s the House of Ideas?

Welcome to the House of Ideas — In the comics, the House of Ideas is essentially the birthplace of the multiverse. It functions as the core of all reality and is where the One-Above-All – the creator of all – resides. It contains a library of numerous books archiving the actions and adventures of every hero that ever existed in the multiverse, which is managed by two abstract entities known as Now and Then.

The pair have a history of personally striking deals with various Marvel heroes to ensure their collection continues to grow – giving them longer and more eventful lives, which in turn results in more pages and books being made in the library. This kind of interaction happened with Loki once.

Sensing the boredom and desire for adventure of the God of Mischief, the twins brought Loki to the House of Ideas and struck a deal. They rewrote the “Books of Loki” to give him a hero’s life (and a hero’s death), while simultaneously creating more books in the archive. Meanwhile, another tale related to the House of Ideas saw none other than Vision and Scarlet Witch fight to ensure that Nyx, the Olympian goddess of the night, did not take over the House and claim it for herself.

That last fact is remarkable considering it has already been said that Loki will somehow tie in with next year’s one Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, starring Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) a big part. With that in mind, the Loki Season 1 finale introduces the House of Ideas, only for the location to revisit in Multiverse of madness? It’s certainly not out of reach.

The Inverse Analysis – Until Loki Episode 6 has been released, there is no way to know for sure what the castle seen at the end of last week’s episode really is. That said, it would make sense to portray the House of Ideas as a castle on the side of an asteroid; it would make even more sense if this location serves as a home base for anyone who runs the TVA. After all, what better place to rule the time stream than from the starting point of the multivere?

As for how the House of Ideas might work in the context of: Lokithe story, that’s hard to say. It seems unlikely that Marvel will introduce a deity like the One-Above-All anytime soon, but there’s no reason to believe that writers won’t tweak the backstory of the location to fit the series. It wouldn’t be the first time Marvel has remixed its own comics to serve the larger vision of its cinematic universe.

Loki is now streaming on Disney+.
