Default Re: Tom Hiddleston: Loki Redux

I chalk up Loki's moment of grief in the Avengers as his realization that he's in too deep getting involved with a thug like Thanos and that what he did is irreversible. That part of Loki's soul that was just a misunderstood, lonely boy in effect died the day he let go of Gungnir and plunged into that portal. To me it's almost like Loki mourns for his loss of innocence and the physical distress that Thanos must have put him through to "harden" him and make him completely apathetic. I'm sure Thanos and his underlings have accosted Loki verbally as well as physically and chastised him for being so sentimental. I don't know a lot about Thanos but I wager any sign of mercy or emotion other than aggression is seen as a weakness to him. Even if Loki redeems himself, he'll be forever scarred by his experiences.
