This was without a doubt the most hearbreaking thing ever
I actually cried
The interesting part of this is that despite their differences, despite the expanding riff between them, Thor still knows his brother. He knows what their mother meant to him. And Thor knows Loki would not be fine with Frigga’s death. He knows his brother would not be pacing around his cell looking like her death didn’t affect him. Loki would be torn. Distraught. A wreck of himself.
Turns out Thor is right. And despite everything, this right here is why they are still brothers.
yeah this movie broke my heart many times over
THE SEXUAL TENSION IN DA LAST SCENE THO
I LOVED THE CAPTAIN AMERICA CAMEO. Like, whatever, okay, I know it’s because CA2 is the next movie coming out, so that’s the natural choice, which doesn’t have anything to do with the story on a narrative level.
AND YET IT’S PERFECT??? Because, like, Steve is so much of what I see as Loki’s issues with the people around him—big and giant and made of muscles (and blond even) and direct and honest and genuine and his way of fighting is beating things up directly. While Steve’s not the perfect Asgardian ideal, he’s certainly QUITE A LOT OF IT, so it makes sense that Loki casts his glamour over himself to look like the one Avenger that’s most like what he thinks Asgard wants/what he most has issues with.
He’s mocking the righteousness, the truth and honor, the loyalty of this character. AND YOU KNOW WHO ELSE IS RIGHTEOUS, TRUTHFUL, HONORABLE, AND LOYAL?
That guy who interupts Loki’s little shit theatrics and slams him up against a pillar, the moment he touches Loki’s skin, the glamour starts fading, THAT’S WHO.
