Minute Seventy-Eight: From Loki Watching the Bifrost to Thor Delivering Breakfast

Joining us to discuss a busy minute with Loki, the Warriors Three & Sif, and Agent Coulson & his SHIELD agents, all while Thor and Jane make breakfast, are Miles Stokes and Elisabeth Allie from the podcast Thor: The Lightning and the Storm.

In the seventy-eighth minute of Kenneth Branagh’s 2011 film Thor

  • So the Warriors Three and Sif take the Bifrost to Midgard, and lo and behold! Loki’s watching. But that begs the question – how long has Loki been standing on his balcony waiting to see Bifrost open up?
  • Is Heimdall watching Loki watch the Bifrost?

The Warriors Three and Sif arrive on Midgard

  • It looks like the same spot where Thor arrived, so is this really the local Bifrost junction?
  • Turns out SHIELD notices them arrive, and they now have handy computer modeling programs to show it. So do they know it’s some form of wormhole travel happening here?
  • Agent Coulson sure doesn’t have many questions. He’s raring to go out to the desert to investigate.

With everyone else is so busy, Thor and Jane make breakfast.

  • It’s a very quiet moment – maybe the quietest in the film? – as Thor and Jane make breakfast for a hung over Erik and smiling Darcy.
  • When did Thor learn to make breakfast?
  • What do we think of the deleted scene where Thor delivers a new mug to Isabela to replace the one he broke?

So many things are put into action in this minute – must be nearing act three – and Miles Stokes and Elisabeth Allie are here for it. Tune in!
