As full of iconic moments as Avengers: Infinity War is, there's one scene that's always stuck out as feeling a little bit...off. In the opening moments of the movie, Thanos boards an Asgardian ship, where he faces down Thor and Loki in order to get his gauntleted hand on the Space Stone. To the surprise of everybody watching, and to the infinite grief of Tom Hiddleston fans, Thanos made quick work of Loki, seemingly killing the God of Mischief once and for all.
But what if there's more to the story than that? Maybe we're just spoiled having seen Loki come back from supposed death a handful of times before, but this new theory actually makes a ton of sense.
