Warning: This article contains SPOILERS for Loki Season 2 Episode 6, so read at your own risk!
The second season finale of Loki saw Loki finally finding his glorious purpose by becoming the God of Stories and taking over the place of He Who Remains as he is now holding all the branched timelines under his watch.
While it was wonderful to see his heroic turn, it also meant that he had to sacrifice himself as he is now sitting on the throne eternally without seeing his friends again although the final shot suggested that he is contented with his place.
There is no doubt that this is a massive turn and character development for Loki. While it is unknown yet whether that was the last time that we're seeing him in the MCU, at the very least, he will forever have an existence.
Fans React to Loki's Turn as God of Stories in the Season 2 Finale
As usual, MCU fans shared their reactions to Loki's fate as God of Stories in the second season finale of Loki on social media where they expressed their relief and happiness for the character's unexpected heroic turn.
A lot of them felt emotional as they never thought that Loki's character development from his MCU debut in Thor would come this far and he has now become a more important figure than ever before.
All throughout, most of the responses to the episode have been enthusiastic and fans praised the series for sticking to the landing.

There was no doubt that it was an exciting turn for the character since we never thought that he'd become one of the greatest heroes in the MCU coming from being one of its most memorable villains.
It also felt like a closure for the character's journey throughout the franchise. While we don't yet whether there will be a third season or not, it does feel like a series finale due to how it all unfolded and, if it was the show's actual ending, it was an appropriate one.
Now, all we can look forward to is what will happen next in the Multiverse Saga since it also led to the multiversal war which will be a pivotal story in the MCU in the coming years and it's interesting to see whether Loki will be able to assist on that.
All episodes of Loki are available to stream on Disney+.
