What does the alternate finale ending of Season Two of ‘Loki’ mean?

Loki saved Multiverse

So in the recently released ‘Assembled: The Making of Loki Season 2’, the director Aaron Moorhead actually revealed an alternate ending for the finale. Get this, in the alternate draft, Loki didn’t destroy the Time Loom. Instead, he saved it from imploding and then went on to ascend the throne. Moorhead said, “We all knew something was up, we just didn’t know what. Cause it was like, well he’s trying to save the Loom, he gets the throne, all of this.”

But the team felt like it was the right call for Loki to actually destroy the Time Loom, you know, so that his character arc is complete. The director even went on to explain:“But the problem was, is that he didn’t have the sacrifice and we realized, why doesn’t he destroy the Loom and then have to take over the Loom’s massive responsibility? He doesn’t get anything out of it. It seems so obvious now, it seems like exactly the right choice. But that was a watershed moment in the development of it, when we realized Loki needs to destroy and become the Loom.”
