"Aside from that little detail, though… [Thor]’s not Loki’s enemy anymore. He’s Loki’s brother - Loki’s big, warm, good-hearted brother, who likes a drink and who’d fight to the death for his friends and family. And Loki, for the first time in a very long while, finds himself responding to that warmth. Loki can no longer find it in him to hate Thor, and they’re getting along better than they have in centuries. (It’s all based on a lie, of course, but it’s still nice to see.)"
