The second season of “Loki” has proven to be a treasure trove and kept MCU fans on the edge of their seats with its thrilling and twist-filled storylines.

As the story in Loki season 2 takes unexpected turns, a new theory has emerged, suggesting that Ke Huy Quan’s character, Ouroboros, might have a hidden evil agenda.

Ouroboros, also known as OB, is a quirky personality introduced in an unknown department within the Time Variance Authority. Mobius brings Loki to OB with the hope of resolving the God of Mischief’s time-related issues.

A theory presented by Heavy Spoilers explores the intriguing possibility that OB holds undiscovered, secret, and potentially malevolent intentions.

Central to this theory is the notion that OB is the sole employee in the TVA’s Research & Advancement Department, a role that entails fixing the messes created by others within the organization for countless lifetimes.

This unique position may have cultivated a desire in OB to exact revenge on the TVA, especially now that he has an opportunity amid the Temporal Loom’s ongoing crisis.

There is even speculation that OB might have deliberately placed Mobius’ life in danger in the show’s premiere episode.

The theory also suggests that OB’s interactions with other characters are minimal unless they need something from him, raising suspicion about his true intentions.

Moreover, it explores the idea of exploring the impact of isolation and loneliness on a person, which has been a recurring theme in characters like Loki, Sylvie, and He Who Remains in Season 1.

A curious link is drawn between the term “Ouroboros” and its thematic and visual similarities to the Sacred Timeline and the Time Loom, possibly hinting at OB’s pivotal role in the series.

The theory presented by Heavy Spoilers also speculates that OB could be a hidden Kang Variant known as “Mr. Gryphon.”

In this scenario, Mr. Gryphon became trapped in the 21st century, two thousand years before his time a unique twist on time travel.

Eagle-eyed viewers may recall a brief Easter egg in Loki Season 1, Episode 5, when Qeng Enterprises made a fleeting appearance, possibly alluding to Mr. Gryphon.

The question that looms large is whether OB is truly as friendly as he appears, or if he conceals a villainous persona beneath his jovial exterior.

While the theory presented raises interesting possibilities, some of the conjectures appear to be a stretch and do not entirely align with OB’s on-screen character thus far.

Moreover, the idea of OB being another Kang Variant raises questions, as the TVA team still requires He Who Remains’ temporal aura, which, in theory, should have immediately reacted to OB if he were indeed another Variant of Kang.

One intriguing possibility proposed is that OB might have been working closely with Kang but had his memories wiped, similar to other TVA employees, allowing room for unexpected character developments in future episodes.

Previously Wright shed light on the concept of “Ouroboros” and provided hints at multiverse saga developments.

If Marvel Studios fails to pursue the theory of OB being Mr. Gryphon the Kang Variant, this would provide the flexibility to replace the Jonathan Majors, allowing the MCU to adapt to evolving storylines and casting needs in the future.

This theory surrounding OB in “Loki” Season 2 continues to intrigue viewers and as the series progresses, audiences can expect further surprises and revelations in new episodes.
