When Mobius wakes up in the void his first thought goes back to Loki. He's not sure if Loki's got pruned as well but he doesn't want to take any chances. When he meets Sylvie there he knows for sure that his Loki is somewhere around. He never lets any negative thoughts about Loki's well-being settle inside his head. Even when Sylvie expresses her doubts, Mobius looks as determined as ever.
When Mobius sits down with the other Lokis and chats about various things he realises that he knows about a Loki more than he even thinks he does. His love for his Loki shows.
Parallel to that, Sylvie and Loki have a heart to heart about their familial bond and Mobius. Loki just smiles fondly when he thinks of Mobius. "He cares about you," Sylvie points out. And Loki, poor innocent Loki, who probably didn't dare to get his hopes up before to avoid heartbreak, remains silent. But his expressions and the way Sylvie smiles knowingly confess everything. He's in love with Mobius and Sylvie knows it too. Mobius is Loki's glorious purpose.
Loki gives Mobius the TemPad to ascertain his safety. He stays and is ready to do everything in his power to make sure that their plan works.
In a place full of pruned Lokis there's just one Mobius. They're meant to gravitate towards each other. They are and will always be each other's favourites.
The presence of the dagger, while they're hugging, is not a coincidence.

Mobius comes back to the TVA office with so much determination to stand by the promise he's made to Loki that no amount of threat from Ravonna makes him waver in the slightest. He tries his best to convince her. But he's alone in his battle. That, however, makes him more determined to get everything right. He's not willing to let his Loki down at any cost.
The way Ravonna tries to dismiss Mobius immediately is in sharp contrast to how easily and willingly Loki and Mobius trust each other. The hint of jealousy is also detected when Ravonna says that Mobius chose to trust "the variants" over everyone else, including her.
The fact that Mobius doesn't let years and years' worth of TVA conditioning cloud his judgement shows exactly how deep-rooted his trust and love for Loki is.
Loki does the same.
The way Loki gives his everything to persuade Sylvie, in vain of course, reminds us of Mobius's conversation with Ravonna. Both of them go through the same ordeal of failing to get the support of someone they consider their ally. The feeling of déjà vu hits us hard.
Mobius might not be physically present when Loki's fighting one of the most conflicting battles of his life, but he gets the courage and assurance from within his heart. Loki knows that his man is doing the same thing at that very moment.
Unfortunately, Sylvie is determined to eliminate everything barring her way to the only goal she's nurtured since she was taken by the TVA. She manages to successfully distract Loki enough to get him away from the scene when she becomes certain that they have entirely different perspectives on what to do about the task at hand.
Back at the TVA, Loki's barely registered the shock when he becomes conscious of where he is. We can pinpoint the moment realisation hits him that he is where his man is.
The way his expression changes to absolute resolution, the way he runs to get to Mobius and the relief he momentarily feels when he finally sees him show us how safe Loki feels in his presence.
Nonetheless, Loki's entire world turns upside down in mere seconds when Mobius fails to recognise him. The panic and desperation in Loki's voice as he utters Mobius's name, again and again, is heartbreaking.
Loki and Mobius are meant to meet and bond in every timeline. They're destined to be drawn to each other. There's a Mobius for each Loki. Just like a solved Rubik's cube, each of them will end up with their own Mobius at the end. For us, the best part of it is being able to witness them falling for each other for the first time, over and over again.
