“Dad, I asked you to BABYSIT HIM FOR A DAY. WHAT PART OF ‘BABYSIT’ TRANSLATES TO ‘RIDE HIM INTO A POTENTIAL BATTLE’? YOU ARE NOT THE WORLD’S BEST GRANDPA. I’M TAKING THAT COFFEE MUG AWAY FROM YOU.”
You know, at work today I was having QUITE SENSIBLE THOUGHTS about the Asgardian royal family and Loki’s descent into madness, and then for some reason I got to thinking about this picture. Because I was remembering how Loki punts Thor through a wall with Gungnir and then races off to the Observatory, and there’s always been a timing issue there that’s bothered me, given we see Loki’s on horseback and Thor’s ridin’ Air Mjolnir; surely the hammer beats the horse? But then…we-ell, I had a terrible moment of fridge logic.
Now, I’ve seen discussion before re: WHERE THE FUCK DID SLEIPNIR GO when the gang all came back from Jotunheimr in the instance above; I seem to remember Taleya quoting someone (possibly goddamnhella) as having the best answer of POKEBALL! (To which I replied something like: “Well that Odin Allfather’s a cheating fuck all right; most people have to go through entire SEASONS of character development and poke-training and overcoming insurmontable odds of mental, physical, and emotional setbacks, whereas all Odin had to do to get an awesome Pokemon was trick his son into fucking a horse!”)
And it just occured to me — where the HELL did Loki’s horse go? Hell, I always wondered what the shit they all did with the horses they took down the Bifrost to go TO Jotunheimr, considering the Observatory doesn’t seem to have a stable attached. And even if it did…um. When Thor smashed the bridge, the Observatory blazed the trail into the abyss for Loki.
…SO WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HORSE?!
And now the Pokeball theory makes sense as to why Thor would walk into a hole in the wall pet-store and expect there to be horses stashed in there somewhere. BRINGS A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO THE WORD “HAMMERSPACE” DON’T IT.
“…But after her first vessel (played by Nicki Aycox) bit the big one, she debuted a new body (Rachel Miner) in season 5. But gone is the deceivingly sweet exterior that made the character a hit. The result? She’s gone from sinister to sinfully unnecessary.”
