The pictures finally came out in HQ, and what do I notice in the background.\
Thor, on his knees, unable to stand the sight of his brother imprisoned like this. ZOMG.
ALL THE FEELS

Oh Joss - you clever man you! I LOVE BUFFY!!! - Sorry, just had to get that out there considering I only post Hiddley Diddley Piddley (or not so Piddley) stuff ;)!
Okay, I am not very good at articulating my feelings but here it goes. The bottom picture: that scene has us all on our hands and knees sobbing, begging to be shot because we just can’t handle it. Loki is like a little child again — he had found out he was never Odin’s son; he was never a prince, truly, and he was always going to be second best no matter what. Growing up he didn’t know, he just saw how everyone always favored Thor and he was left in the background. All he EVER wanted was to be treated as Thor was, but he was never treated the same. Then he finds out why — because he is Laufey’s son. He’s the very thing people have despised in Asgard. He is the thing even HE grew up hating because of what he was taught. Now that he knows what he is, he HATES himself. He feels like being a monster calls for acting like one, because why should he ever act normal again? Why should he pretend to be a good person when inside he’s disgusting?
And he finds out the whole purpose of being taken by Odin was to bring out a truce between the two. He was always just a weapon to use in the future. He was locked up in Asgard, always waiting and not knowing it. When Odin would look at him — he saw the thing that he would use to bring together Jotunheim and Asgard. Loki’s thoughts go as Odin never cared for him; never saw him as his own son because he was taken as a plan. Throughout Loki’s life, Odin just kept planning how this truce would come about. Loki was no more than a pawn in Odin’s game.
Throughout Thor, after he sends The Destroyer to kill Thor and his friends, after he brings in Laufey to kill Odin, we realize he just wanted to be King. He just wanted people to see he was a good man, and he showed us by doing bad things. The bottom picture is the top picture. A little boy never knowing why he wasn’t good enough; why he tried SO HARD to be, but was shot down from the beginning. All he ever wanted was to make his father proud. He never wanted to be a monster.
