I like how the last three strips have been something of a lesson for all the people who assumed that Durkon entering the Northern domain would instantly result in a Thor smackdown. Narratively, Thor can't solve this for the heroes; they're going to have to work it out on their own.
Not overtly, anyway. He could be secretly nudging Belkar, though Belkar's also been getting pretty savvy lately, so it's probably just that. Unless Thor set that up somehow. But I don't think he's sneaky like that.
