A general Slitherlink tactic that helps in this puzzle several times is to consider any 2 square in a "corner" - which includes a 2 square with both exits from one of its corners blocked off. In these cases it must either 'flex in' or 'flex out' from the 2 points adjacent to the corner point. Sometimes this observation solves the 2 square; other times it at least tells you where the loop enters and exits these squares.
