So can we talk about Loki’s cell in the dungeon for a minute?
While the guy has got zero privacy (except what he creates for himself with magic), this is a pretty posh space. He’s got a beautiful bed with layers of pillows and linens, a carved and gilded chair covered in what looks to be a velvet and a matching ottoman, there’s a free-standing wash basin (similar if not identical to the on you see in Thor’s quarters when he washes up after battle). His table has some very nice appointments including that cup he tosses in the air. And I didn’t notice anyone bringing fresh fruit to the other prisoners.
Thor and Odin didn’t come to see Loki after he got locked up. Loki’s dialogue after Frigga’s death makes that pretty clear. So why does Loki have such a nice home down in the dungeon? One on the corner near the stairs where he will have as little contact as possible with other prisoners while still being able to see daylight?
I think it’s pretty obvious that Frigga’s trying to make life as comfortable for Loki as possible. I’d bet good money that all the furniture (with the green and gold color scheme no less) are from his old bedroom. And the books — those are from his mother too. Are they favorites from his own collection, ones she knows he enjoys, or is she trying to slip him a few magic texts on the sly to ensure he keeps up his skills?
The more I look at this room the sadder I become. Frigga so clearly loved this young man she raised as her own. How cruel is it that they can’t even be bothered to put Loki in the shackles and have guards bring him out to witness Frigga’s ascension to Valhalla?
SRSLY. ALL THE FEELS.
