Season 2 Episode 2. Continuing our series on “Loki – The cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.” Loki gets himself in a pickle and the only solution is to sell out the goddess Idunn to the giant Thjazi. The only problem is, all of the Aesir are dependent on Idunn to supply them with magic apples that give the gift of eternal youth.
Under threat of torture and execution, Loki once again has to finish what he started.
Shawn has some background on the “Norse Trinity” of gods, the confusion about Thjazi the Giant / Dwarf / Dark Elf, and fan-theory on the relationship between Thjazi and Idunn.
David has some interpretations on the significance of Idunn, her apples, and Loki’s relationship to the repressed inner feminine in a man’s life.
