Thor: The Dark World (liveblog) [x]
I had just finished writing this post and sharing it with thescentofwhiteroses, which is one that discusses Loki having a very concrete moment directly smacking him in the face of how Thor has changed and then Bree mentioned that that’s pretty much how Loki reacts to having mini-crises—by being a little shit.
Which then led us back to discussions of the prison breakout scene, which I’ve discussed before, in what I think is driving what seems almost like borderline mania there—basically, Loki’s got some real mood whiplash going on there because he’s forcing himself into the mood that he thinks he ought to have.
But another thing I’ve discussed recently is in how Loki reacts to when he wants something, which is to be an obnoxious little shit about it. That I think that’s how he got what he wanted, by being an adorable little shit, the whole “I’m a stinker, but you love me, right? :3” deal.
And the reason it occurred to me to put these three things together on this post here is because I think it suddenly explains a whole lot about Loki. Thor tells him that he no longer has any hope to protect Loki anymore, that he doesn’t recognize his brother in there anymore. Loki scoffs, but there’s likely a tiny little seed of doubt in there. Thor’s not raging at him, Thor’s not yelling at him, Thor’s just really tired of dealing with his shit. But, well, whatever, nobody really believes that Thor intends to kill Loki, I don’t think even Thor really meant it, just that it was the necessary thing to say to keep Loki on as much of a leash as possible.
It’s still enough that Loki goes into the same mode that he always goes into when he’s in trouble—joke joke joke, glib commentary, needling at the person he wants attention from (Thor), acting practically hyper because that’s what spoiled kids do when they’re in trouble and trying to charm their way out of it. They act like obnoxious little shits because that’s always what’s worked in the past. (Also, I think the mania comes from what I talked about in this post, it’s a combination of the two, as things often are with Loki.)
Then you have Loki getting smacked in the face with the very direct evidence that Thor lied to him, which means Thor is capable of lying to him and Loki didn’t recognize it. This is uncharted ground for them and Loki plays it up like it doesn’t matter, he grins with borderline mania and kicks up a spray to get them noticed (what a little stinker!) before making everyone wonder if he was going to crash them right into the side of the mountain (what a little stinker!) and then “Tadaaaaa!” as they pull through (what a little stinker!) and then more needling because Thor isn’t reacting to him like Loki expects.
Because Thor is so different now (not that different, Thor is still recognizably Thor, but for gods who have been unchanging for centuries, for a people as written in stone as the Assgardians are, this must feel like major shifting) and Loki feels that, feels Thor pulling away even further, that Loki can’t just rely on the old methods. And I think that’s a lot of what causes the all over the map behavior we see and why Loki suddenly is so angry about Jane and why he’s suddenly so much more genuine with Thor on Svartalfheim, that his help was genuine there.
It’s more complicated than that, of course, because Loki still sees himself as the victim of their story, that he sees himself as the monster who plays at being the victim. There’s also just pure, simple habit in much of the “typical brothers!” interaction with Thor.
But when I step back and look at the bigger picture, when I think of how Loki feels to have his foundations slipping even further away from him (no matter that he worked so hard to push them away, he’s a spoiled child who thinks everything will just always be there for him anyway), it makes perfect sense to me that he starts needling Thor for attention, by doing what Loki knows how to do best, what Thor always loved best about him—that Loki is a rotten little stinker.

FERGUSON, Missouri—Talk to anyone in Ferguson and you’ll hear a story about the police. “One of my friends had a son killed by the Ferguson Police Department, about 10 years ago,” said Carl Walker, a Vietnam veteran and former parole officer who came to show his support for demonstrators in Ferguson. “They wouldn’t release the name of the officer who killed him. Why wouldn’t you release the name?”
“The cops said he shot at them—case closed,” said Al Cole, referring to a cousin who was killed by Ferguson police in 2000. “Even as a teenager, 13 or 14 years old, I’ve been slammed on police cars … now I try to avoid riding through Ferguson.”
“Some police say they saw me at a house, pulled me, said I fit a description, locked me up, and found out I was on parole,” said Craig Beck, who was watching demonstrators under the shade of a burned-out QuikTrip convenience store. “They said I threw a plastic baggie, which they didn’t have when they took me into custody.” He continues: “I beat the case, but you know, this isn’t new. This happens every day.”
If you read one thing about what has been happening in Ferguson so far, it should be this piece.

Okay seriously, I’ve never seen this guy get any credit, but check this out. Steve had just given his speech that Hydra had infiltrated SHIELD and Project Insight was their means of taking total control. Project Insight, which must have taken hundreds of mislead SHIELD employees several months if not years to get this far, and suddenly all priorities are reversed with a few words from the Star Spangled Man With A Plan. So when Rumlow marches in and orders this kid to go through with it, he stares him down for a good 20 seconds, demanding “Is there a problem?” twice in the process. Everyone else is watching in tense silence. This guy is clearly terrified and probably in shock knowing everything he worked for was a Hydra crafted lie, but he sticks with his morals and finally works up the courage to say no, not happening. This is everyday heroism, on par with the man in the Avengers who stood up to Loki when he ordered everyone to kneel. It’s sticking up for what’s right, even in the face of repercussions and knowing your actions alone won’t stop what’s happening. At least you had the strength of character to do the right thing, when it would have been so much easier to follow along and not make yourself a target.
Give this kid a medal.
This guy is one of my favourite characters in the film, purely because of Aaron Himelstein’s performance. He is so, so wonderfully believably human, and it’s moments of realistic heroism that help stop Cap 2 from being just another film about people with highly specialised and/or superhuman abilities doing things that push the boundaries of plausability. This kid’s moment of defiance is such a small dramatic moment when compared to the epic battle that follows, but its enormity in terms of importance to the film as a whole should not be underestimated.
Also - Sharon Carter totally saves this character’s life a few seconds later. When she and Rumlow start fighting, she kicks the kid’s chair out from under him so he doesn’t get shot (because he’s rabbit-frozen), and he hits the floor and is able to hide under a desk.

❝ ‘I cannot make speeches, Emma:’ he soon resumed; and in a tone of such sincere, decided, intelligible tenderness as was tolerably convincing. - ‘If I loved you less, I might be able to talk about it more. But you know what I am. - You hear nothing but truth from me. - I have blamed you, and lectured you, and you have borne it as no other woman in England would have borne it. - Bear with the truths I would tell you now, dearest Emma, as well as you have borne with them. The manner, perhaps, may have as little to recommend them. God knows, I have been a very indifferent lover. - But you understand me. - Yes, you see, you understand my feelings - and will return them if you can. At present, I ask only to hear, once to hear your voice.’ ❞
