Loki has literally set the base for everything that is waiting for us ahead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The show not just gave us Marvel’s second-biggest villain but also a love trajectory between the God of Mischief and Sylvie. Now while it all looked visually stunning and plot-wise intriguing, wasn’t that the Trickster in a way making out with himself? Well, a lot feel so and are pointing out the incest theory. Kate Herron now chooses to react about it.

Loki introduced us to the TVA and also delved into the world of variants. The God Of Mischief has many, and Sylvie is just one of them. In this case, when Loki locked lips with her on a crucial turn in a story it was technically him making out with himself. Well, the man is completely capable of doing that, just look at how self-obsessed the trickster is. But a section of fans could not digest that and called it out. Kate Herron, the director of the successful Marvel-Disney show, has now reacted to it. Below is all you need to know about the same.


Loki director Kate Herron took the puzzling route of answering the said incest angle in the show. She said art must be up for some debate. Herron said, “I follow all the conversations on Twitter. I don’t always weigh in on them, because I made the show, so they don’t want me weighing in like, ‘Actually, guys…’. I think that’s the whole point of art, it should be up for debate and discussion.”

She added, “My interpretation of it is that they’re both Lokis, but they aren’t the same person. I don’t see them as being like brother and sister. They have completely different backgrounds, and I think that’s really important to her character. They sort of have the same role in terms of the universe and destiny, but they won’t make the same decisions.”

  1. Well, as Sylvie said to Loki, “I was pruned beofre you even existed..” so that pretty much nails it as Loki and Sylvie being two separate beings who BOTH happened to have the title of God of Mischeif.

    The folks that see the incesty stuff need to learn to understand *context*. But then again, you can excuse kids on Twitter for not getting the more subtle points of the writing (which so far, has been top-notch).

  2. I see nothing wrong with the Loki/ Sylvie romance, he’s Loki after all. A norse god that is to complicated to be contained in one variant, Sylvie isn’t Loki……She is a PART of Loki and when they are togather they complete each other. Its like saying that your arm and your leg are the same… their not, they are both part of the same body, have some of the same functions, but in the end…your arm and leg are different, and they complement eachother. One helps you walk, and one helps you grab things. Sylvie isn’t a clone of loki, she just has a lot of the same tastes and on a minor level SOME of the same emotions. If she were an exact clone of Loki then she wouldn’t disagree with him.

  3. You can say its not incest by claiming them as separate people and that would work, if it wasn’t for the fact that Sylvie is labelled as the daughter of Laufey on the TVA’s official file on her. Just like Loki is the son of Laufey. This means the only difference in the universes they hail from is that in one universe Loki was born female (Sylvie). Otherwise, that universe is so much the same as the one we know that both of these characters have the same parents. Their families are the same. Son of Laufey and daughter of Laufey. This is what the fans are pointing out. I think Kate’s answer to this is strange because her and the writing team made the decision to cite Sylvie as Laufey’s daughter in the first place, hence giving her a genetic relation to Loki, when they really didn’t have to do that and moreover we’ve had two characters in the show claim that Loki and Sylvie’s romance is “Sick. Twisted. Demented. Unnatural”. Yet here Kate talks about it as if she’s not aware of the fact she gave them the same parents and not aware that lines were directly written into the show to point out how “gross/wrong” the romance is suppose to be perceived by others.

    I don’t think this is a case of Twitter kids not understanding context. I think its a case of lazy writing and maybe even the producers of the show themselves not understanding context, or at least forgetting their own established canon. If a romance is all and what they always had in mind for Loki and Sylive’s relationship, and according to Mark it is/was, I don’t know why they didn’t just give them different parents. It would have worked out so much better and would have been a perfectly plausible, easy thing to do without ever messing with or taking away from anything else in the show. If not only adding something, because it would have negated the incestuous vibe. But I mean. Whatever.
