Summary

  • Director Kasra Farahani explains that Miss Minutes’ villainous turn in Loki season 2 stems from her frustration with He Who Remains and feeling like he has never taken her seriously.
  • Miss Minutes’ ultimate goal is to be united with Victor Timely and have him build her own body, but she is betrayed by him and left abandoned at the End of Time.
  • It remains unclear what Miss Minutes’ next steps will be and whether her partnership with Ravonna will be beneficial for both of them or just for the AI. The stakes are raised as Loki and Mobius work with Victor to keep the multiverse alive.

Following the shocking reveal of her true intentions, director Kasra Farahani is breaking down Miss Minutes’ villainous turn in Loki season 2. Played by iconic voice actor Tara Strong, Miss Minutes is introduced in season 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe show as the sentient artificial intelligence behind the Time Variance Authority, later reveled to be working with He Who Remains and holding her own ulterior motives, Season 2 has largely seen Miss Minutes working with Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayer to help reinstate a variant of He Who Remains as the head of the TVA and restore order to the crumbling multiverse.

Episode 3, entitled “1893”, went on to reveal that Miss Minutes’ ultimate goal was to be united with Victor Timely and have him build her very own body, and now, Farahani is exclusively explaining to Screen Rant the motives behind her villainous turn in Loki season 2. Though acknowledging that it stems from “my opinion“, the director explained that Miss Minutes is frustrated with He Who Remains for having “never taken her seriously,” with her retaliation against Victor stemming as an unfortunate projection of these feelings. Check out what Farahani shared below:

Sure. I mean, what I can tell you is that, and this is just my opinion, that Ms. Minutes is maybe more human in some ways than those AIs. And that’s what we’re seeing here, is that she has desires, she has very troublingly, awkwardly, uncomfortably human desires and that she’s frustrated that she feels like she’s been with He Who Remains since the start, and she’s starting to get pretty pissed off at how he’s never taken her seriously. And she’s, unfortunately for Victor Timely, taking it out on him who has no context about what the hell she’s talking about.


What Will Miss Minutes Do After Victor’s Betrayal?

Despite her best efforts to convince him, Miss Minutes is similarly betrayed by Victor near the end of Loki season 2, episode 3, with the Kang variant shutting her off just as she’s professing her love for him. Ravonna similarly arrives too late to stop Victor from turning the AI off, instead threatening to prune him for leaving her abandoned in the middle of the ocean. Sylvie, Loki and Mobius arrive just in time to stop her, with the former allowing the two to take Victor back to the TVA while sending Ravonna to the Citadel at the End of Time, where they find He Who Remains’ body and Miss Minutes teases knowing a secret about the former TVA Judge.

With Miss Minutes now having failed to convince Victor to create a body for her and left abandoned at the End of Time, it remains unclear what her next steps will be for the rest of the season. She and Ravonna are likely to want revenge for their respective betrayals, especially if the secret the AI knows about the latter proves to be one regarding her original identity before she became a Judge. Though most of the TVA are in the midst of questioning the nature of their original lives, the impending collapse of the Temporal Loom has prevented them from taking the time to ponder whether they will look to leave the TVA behind and return to the Sacred Timeline.

Ravonna, on the other hand, seems keen to not only continue her TVA life, but without the help of a Kang variant, her only ally becomes Miss Minutes heading into the rest of Loki season 2. Given the AI was similarly keen on restoring the agency under the rule of Victor, it’s unclear whether this partnership between the pair will be for both of their benefits or just for her own, but Miss Minutes’ villainous turn is sure to raise the stakes even further as Loki and Mobius work with Victor to keep the multiverse alive.
