On the heels of his escape in the botched New York leg of Avengers: Endgame's time heist, Loki finds himself eventually captured by the Time Variance Authority/TVA — an organization that safeguards the Sacred Timeline. Desperate, Agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) tapped his help to hunt down a female variant of himself, Sylvie (Sophia di Martino), who had been wreaking havoc. In the end, the Lokis came together to get to the bottom of the organization after the show revealed that it was built on lies. The Time-Keepers, who supposedly created it, do not exist. Instead, it was started by He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), a version of Kang the Conqueror. At the end of Loki season 1, the multiverse has been unleashed which effectively sets up the MCU's collective future.
Before the reveal, however, Loki episode 6 titled "For All Time. Always" started a little bit differently than previous episodes. Instead of the usual theme or song over the Marvel Studios logo, a string of MCU quotes, among others can be heard. That includes Sam Wilson applauding Ant-Man for being Giant-Man in Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther revving up the Wakandan Army with "Wakanda Forever," Thor's "he's a friend from work" quip from Thor: Ragnarok, Captain Marvel's tagline: "higher, further, faster, baby," and Doctor Strange's "I've come to bargain" plea to Dormammu in the original film. Even Loki's "we have a Hulk" from Avengers: Infinity War was also included. Marvel fan from Reddit with the handle u/SicariusReal tracked down all the spoken words in the bit and edited the scenes they came from over Loki's actual intro for a clear visual. Watch it below:
Marvel Studios opting to open the Loki finale with a reference to the bigger MCU was a clever way to foreshadow how its subsequent events will change the franchise moving forward. As He Who Remains is killed by Sylvie, the multiverse is now in full chaos with no one to ensure that the Sacred Timeline remains untampered with. This sets up multiple projects in the universe's upcoming slate such as Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and even the animated show, What If...? among others. As for the bigger MCU, it effectively establishes Kang the Conqueror as its next big crossover villain.
At this point, it's uncertain if there's any logic to the selection of quotes chosen by Marvel Studios to feature in the Loki episode 6 intro video. They appear to be from random events and projects with no rhyme or reason behind them. The decision, however, to choose Harry James and Kitty Kallen's song "It's Been A Long, Long Time" to kick off the title card could be a hint that the lingering mystery about Captain America's final Endgame fate would finally be resolved.
