All the shows area transition to something else, setting up something for a future movie or show. WandaVision sets up The Marvels and Dr Strange 2. F&WS sets up the Fury series and Cap 4. Loki sets up the next Thanos, Quantumania, and at least one future Avengers movie (not the next one but the one after). For what If, they hinted that some of the alternate characters could make it into future movies. Killmonger Black Panther is the obvious pick, but they hinted at Captain Carter too (if they can make a Hulk-like CGI version of the actress, because I don't expect her to buff up like Chris Evans holding on to a helicopter)
For Loki and the time ravel rules, that show didn't break the Avengers rules, Avengers broke the Avengers rule. The question of how Steve remained hidden in his alt timeline with Peggy and then managed to come back was already a problem that they just didn't address at all. Loki just claimed that "the TVA allowed it precisely because Steve didn't make any wave", confirming that yes, Steve did remain hidden and left everything play out as we saw it.
The TV show was already a problem with Loki's personality when they decided to 1. pick him out of the timeline a while before his entire character arc, 2. show him all of his own character development arc to get him up to speed and pretend that he's at the same point as when he died. It wasn't really a character study of anything, just an excuse to keep having Tom Hiddleston be Loki even though they killed him off.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.
