Synopsis for "Tales From Asgard: Balder Must Die"Edit
Jealous of Balder being in favor of Odin next to Thor, Loki decides that he will attempt to kill Balder. Knowing that Odin gifted Balder with immortality, Loki surmises that Balder must have some sort of weakness. He seeks out the Norn Queen in his attempt to find Balder's weakness.
At first the Norn Queen refuses to aid Loki, telling him that all things in Asgard obey Odin's law to protect Balder, but eventually gives into Loki's demands and tells him that the only item in all of Asgard that did not pledge to protect Balder was mistletoe. With this knowledge in hand, Loki travels out and obtains a small amount of mistletoe and has one of his slave trolls fashion the mistletoe into a dart and construct him a blow gun.
The next day Loki spies Balder in jousting practice in the combat fields waiting for the right moment to strike. Balder ends up tripping in an attempt to avoid stepping on a caterpillar and Loki uses it as an opportunity to fire the dart at him. Just as he is about to fire the dart, the blow gun bursts into flames in his hands. Loki is then contacted by the Norn Queen via her crystal ball where she informs Loki that although mistletoe did not pledge to protect Balder, she did, and thus thwarted his attempt to kill Balder. Loki pledges revenge, however the Norn Queen has one of her witches prepare for any attempt as such.
Balder, meanwhile regains his feet, little knowing how close he was to losing his life.
