Quote1.png Time is elusive, lovely Hela. And its rules may be bent but not broken. I cannot go back and change what has happened. But I can make what happened, happen. And spend the rest of my very, very long life wondering which came first. But ultimately...caring not a whit. Quote2.png

Hela helps to restore Loki to has he once was, a son of Laufey. Hela tells him that she finds his former body familiar, and then they combine their power and send him back into the past of Jotunheim. Once there, he greets the Frost Giants and tells them he has a plan.

They give him a cloak, and he casts a spell turning Bor into snow. He then begins to haunt Odin in the guise of Bor, telling him to adopt a child of a father he will kill in battle. He goes to visit his younger self and tells him how he can change his life forever, and get rid of his father Laufey in the bargain..[1]
