Oh my gosh his crying face :’(

I really like how this is done. The movie makes is clear Loki wasn’t born evul. He’s a good kid here if kind of a brat (like little Loki in the comics omg I am so pleased i love little Loki so), and he and Thor are very close and he clearly loves both his dad and his brother. But he’s also just kind of volatile in that he’s pushed, when he’s hurt, he can’t really control himself. He’s just…really raw, I guess? Thor is able to deal with what’s happening, but Loki just sort of falls apart. And not in a malicious way, he’s completely freaked out over killing someone, but because someone he loves is hurt, he just loses it. So you can see how something really bad could just mess him up to such a bad degree as it later does.
