After the battle of New York, Loki was banished to Midgard as punishment. For four years Thor has been searching for him, and Loki has managed to evade him at every turn-- until now. What’s left of his magic is rapidly diminishing, and his new-found mortality is making itself painfully apparent. Evading Heimdall’s gaze takes every bit of energy he has left, so much so that Loki doesn’t dare waste his magic on finding food or securing shelter. Because he knows that if Heimdall gets so much as a glimpse at him, Thor will find him. What Thor would do exactly, Loki didn’t know. But whether his false brother wanted revenge of his own or not, Loki trusted that he wouldn't live to experience Thor's hatred.
Dying hadn’t been part of the plan, but it was the better option.
