Loki's relationship with Odin
Spoilers for Ragnarok are below, so scroll on by if you haven’t seen it yet. :)
So while I have a bajillion feelings about this movie and want to get them out there I have to first comment about this loser* and how things just fit into place in Ragnarok regarding him and his family.
I know that other’s have probably said this more eloquently, but for me, I gotta say that the revelation about Hela and her and Odin’s background made everything just click in terms of Loki and the way he was raised, treated, and the family dynamic. It especially explains so damn much about the dynamic between Odin and Loki.
Everyone has been saying how much Hela and Loki look alike, even a blind man can see that. It was no mistake how Odin’s magic made Loki’s glamour follow Hela’s overall complexion and love of the colour green. Hela was imprisoned before Thor and Loki were born, so we know that this all happened after her banishment. How long from her banishment to their birth is a bit of a mystery, but I think it was still close enough that Odin chose (or maybe not fully consciously chose) how Loki would look as an Aesir. He still missed his daughter and obviously felt the pain and guilt of that loss and what she had become. Loki and Thor are Odin and Asgard’s redemption for the atrocities that he and Hela committed together.
