If that's the scenario then Loki is chopping off the hand to stop the infection spreading, to save mjolnir from getting lost to the baddies, and he gets to satisfy his evil side by inflicting bodily harm on Thor!
Yeah I heard someone say that before, itīs possible. But I am 100% sure that he will get the hand back.
Isnīt it more likely that itīs some kind of illusion that Loki uses to fool someone?
