How Loki's Tom Hiddleston And The Filmmakers Approached That Big Death Scene In The Premiere

Fast forward to tonight’s premiere episode of the new Disney+ series Loki, and all of that pain has been brought back – albeit with a new angle: rather than it just being fans saddened to watch the villain’s death, Loki himself is now a part of that audience, as being in the Time Variance Authority gives the character the opportunity to witness the very real way that his story is supposed to end.

The moment makes for what is the best scene in the first chapter of Loki, and being so impressed by it, I felt compelled to ask star Tom Hiddleston, director Kate Herron, and head writer Michael Waldron all about it when I interviewed the three of them individually this past week during a virtual press day for the new show.
