The girl points to a stained glass window that features the devil, which seems like a very obvious reference to Mephisto.
"Don't worry, that devil's afraid of us," Wilson's Mobius says. "We're going to take care of him."

'Zoey's Playlist' Cast Reacts to 'Ridiculous' Cancellation, Urges Fans to Help
Nothing to sing about! NBC announced the cancelation of musical comedy-drama Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist on Wednesday, June 9, and it didn’t take long for the Twitter uproar to begin. The series, which was on the bubble for months, took home the Emmy award in 2020 for Outstanding Choreography For Scripted Programming and was the only network show to garner a Golden Globe nomination in 2021, with star Jane Levy landing the Best Actress – Television Series, Musical or Comedy nod. “Okay.

During the first season, this was extremely helpful because she couldn’t communicate with her father (played by Peter Gallagher) after he was diagnosed with a rare neurological disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), leaving him unable to move or speak. “It started from the fact that my father passed away several years ago from PSP, this degenerative neurological disease,” Winsberg told Entertainment Weekly when the series began.
While Herron's comments might not completely rule out Mephisto's involvement in the MCU - she could just be playing coy to keep the surprise under wraps - it seems pretty likely that this particular reference has nothing to do with Mephisto.
We'll have to wait and see if Mephisto pops up in "Loki" or any future MCU project down the line. But for now, Herron's show has bigger fish to fry:
