Let’s follow up with Loki Year 2016! In this late episode, we’ll see that Loki lips are sealed! We’re reading the events of Book 1, lessons 9 & 10 from the Gospel of Loki. Loki starts having some fun with the Dwarves that make presents for the Asgardians (Odin and company). However, he happens to make a bet, and in doing so, he might discover something that’s going to be painful. The Dwarves are well known as great crafters, so asking from them some extra gifts (including a golden wig for Thor’s wife) is going to proof tricky for our beloved trickster. To belittle such Dwarves without any backup can be a mistake.
The Dwarves create awesome weapons for the Gods, including Mjolnir! And so, they go along with Loki back to Asgard and give all of them to the Gods. However, there’s a hunch. Remember the bet Loki made? Thanks to his trickery he seems to escape. However, Dwarves are pretty smart, and they too find a loophole in his speech so that they do seal Loki’s lips.
So, what does our beloved Loki learn? That you cannot trust anyone. Not even his blood brother Odin. Remember that Loki in Norse Mythology is the blood brother of Odin, not the brother of Thor as stated in Marvel movies and comics. What hurts Loki the most in The Gospel of Loki is that Odin does not support him. All the Gods of Asgard rejoice and laugh at Loki’s miseries. This event shows him that he is the outcast, that he will never fit it regardless of what Odin promised him. And so, Loki’s lips are sealed, and he starts planning something.
