He was angry at her for a long time during that movie but came over to her because Asgard was in trouble and she was a Valkyrie and technically also an Asgardian. Loki throughout the film was consistently getting the short stick as well, and people were (at times) seem to be a step ahead of him. Also, Valkyrie's character made way more sense and had a very important presence in the film while Deke is just a waste of screen time. Why is he in the past (other than to tell people who his grandparents are?), he has no purpose, he really has no knowledge of the event that is supposed to destroy the world, and when/if the future changes does this mean he just fades away/ceases to exist (like it is going to be like Back to the Future-esque?), etc...? Also, storywise he is worse than Valkyrie and Star-Lord (pre-Orb) combined. He works with alien overlords that are responsible for killing his mother, he almost gets the entire human race killed, he runs a Kree approve business, even now his character hasn't really changed and he only stills really cares about himself, etc... BJ Britt gave two interviews around the time he left and he claimed that the killing Trip came out of nowhere for him. He never said he was leaving because he got a new job, instead, he said that the producers called him into their office and told him that they were going to kill off his character soon. He said that he was pretty much saddened by it and eventually told the other cast about it and they were also saddened by it as well. Yeah, part of me wonders if they wanted to go and tell these "complex" stories with these "complex" characters but never fully committed to it and/o just gave up on it soon afterward. For me it's basically would be if the showrunner of Breaking Bad just decided that once Jesse learned that Walt poisoned a child he just forgot about and just continued to hang out with Walt- under his own free will or something. Because if that had happened I would be sure that many people would be upset that Jesse would just so easily forgive Walt for that kind of shit and honestly, I don't think that Jesse, at the end of the series, forgave Walt 100% either for it as well. Instead, in my opinion, the showrunners of this show (AoS) just want us to "move on" and/or forget about it because that seems to be what the characters are doing. There shouldn't be a 100% forgiveness or even trust in Fitz from Daisy. She was tortured and now Mack shouldn't trust Simmons and Yo-Yo shouldn't either because again, of what Simmons and Yo-Yo did him, etc... Not mentioned that Deke is a waste of a character and has no point being in the current story, storywise at all. Not to mention why should audiences/the main characters even accept him when he just sold one of them into slavery? WTF was that and WTF are people so okay with it? As with the plots, yes there is a constant hitting of the restart button but also retconning things so whatever they decided to pair up May/Coulson and/or Fitz/Simmons they now can say, "well the characters were always like that...." even though we know they weren't. It's like watching characters from a parallel universe or something and there isn't much explaining being done but just having a forced flashback trying to retconned past seasons worths of what we know of these characters (and I am not talking about turning Ward into a Hydra member. That was something different but last season of Coulson always being in love with May, etc....). Ward's evilness is what made him into a good villain, IMO, but also that he was competent villain (he gets really close and/or achieves his goals) Am I the only one seeing the bigger picture here saving billions is more important than how someone feels about being betray 1 Link to comment
