And I’ve finally come to a conclusion about something.
I didn’t really think Loki was in his right mind for most of the film, as incredible as he is, but there’s definitely a lot of power taking a hold of him there with the Tessaract and Thanos. And then I realized.
When Hawkeye is going around hunting Black Widow, his eyes, though blue, have the same weakened, sleepless look that Loki’s have at the beginning of the film. Hawkeye is brought back to being his normal self by being punched in the face repeatedly by Black Widow.
At the end of the film, or at least near it, Loki is beaten severely by The Hulk, and lays there, trauatized, in shock. But when we see him next, all of his actions, and movements, and placement of other characters suggest not only that he’s waking up, but almost like he’s staring to remember something. Like this whole time he’s been in a trance, or daze. Like this entire time he’s been controlled just as much as Hawkeye was by him. Which means Loki still isn’t the bad guy that everyone makes him out to be. Sure, he’s freaking bamf, but still.
I don’t really know what the whole purpose of this post is, aside to get my thoughts this afternoon all out there, but yeah…After 3 times, I finally found a logical way to figure out what was going on. Yay me!
