Always”, when Loki and Sylvie reach the Citadel at the end of time, there is a fourth Time Keeper statue smashed to the floor. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Farahani was asked to elaborate on this detail. “Unfortunately, I can not say anything about it, but the answers are coming,” Farahani said.
Along with the release of concept art from the series, Farahani explained his inspiration for Citadel at the End of Time, the massive castle that housed the season’s big bad, He Who Remains (played by Jonathan Majors). “I think whoever stays built it,” Farahani said. “The biggest influence was probably Xanadu from Citizen Kane and Hearst Castle [the real-life inspiration for Xanadu] as a result. This eccentric person rattles around this great citadel. “Director Kate Herron has also recently stated that the Majors’ character was directly inspired by the man behind the curtain in The Wizard of Oz.
The fourth Time Keeper statue is not the only one in disrepair in the Citadel. Instead, according to Farahani, the intention behind the design of the Citadel was to look forged, while He, who remains office, was the only part of the castle in pristine condition.
“I threw this idea that he had retired to the office at the time. The atrium, [where] you see the 13 meter high Sentinels of Time statues and the hall with the giant clock and the Timekeeper statues … there would be a feeling that he had withdrawn from these places and they are in decay, “said Farahani .

However, it was revealed that they were nothing but androids created by He who remains (expressed by Majors).

In the cartoon, he has been banished to Egypt in 2950 BC for an unknown reason. of the three main Time Keepers and warns the Fantastic Four about Kang the Conqueror’s son, Ramades.
