Loki to Mobius: ‘You had a life, maybe a family!’
But seriously!!! LOOK HOW MUCH HE LOVES HIS FAMILY!
LOOK AT IT
SOAK IT IN
HE LOVES HIS FAMILY SO MUCH AND THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW
Hearing Odin say that he loves him.
Realizing that he and Thor are still together and talking. And that they watched Odin die together. For one small, incremental moment, he wasn’t alone in something awful.
The death of his parents is so painful that he has to look away from the screen. Then quickly looks back up upon hearing Thor talk.
Maybe you’re not so bad after all brother,
Loki laughs quietly, because Thor gets him. And Loki feels that for the first time in a very long time. Then Thor offers to hug him, and Loki smiles. And laughs. The first, genuine smile and laugh that we’ve gotten from him since Thor 1 (at this point in the timeline):
And by the Norns, they hugged. You can freakin see it in his face.
And then he goes forward, because surely, surely there is more good memories like these here. Of course there are, he and Thor are finally talking. Their parents may be dead, but Thor’s love means so much to him it’s the first thing that breaks Loki out of his stoic mask.
Look at him, still hopeful, still wanting.
And then Thanos makes an on-screen appearance.
And then Loki realizes, no. There are no more good memories here.

"To your knowledge, are you a robot?"
In an entire episode about pushing Loki's buttons and making him feel vulnerable, I like this one the most. Because it's the original problem. A year ago, to his knowledge, Loki wasn't a Frost Giant.
