Obvious case of cousin rivalry.

I legitimately don't know if that's a thing or not, having no cousins myself.

Maybe Durkon just doesn't have as much dramatic sensitivity as Elan.

Really? Couldn't he at least waited until the guy finished his speech to make his actions unnecessary? Talking is a free action, so its not like there was any reason to steal his thunder in the middle of his heroic speech.
His actions were always unnecessary though.
I mean, I don't think you really deserve to make a heroic speech if the only reason you are making one is because you forgot a basic fact of the universe (clerics can dispel magic) or because you forget the basic composition of your team (aka, that you have magic users at all).
Neither of those are really good enough reasons to deserve a heroic speech in my opinion especially since (as talking is a free action) he could have just asked if anyone had a way to get through the barrier instead of just forcing himself through.

As this is obviously all Loki's doing, presumably Plan C is to send in Odin to grandfatherly visit every dwarf left in Hel's domain until he says something horribly ominous that distracts her.

I see - Either Hell gives up hundreds of thousands (or even millions) of dwarven souls, or she is unable to interfere with the events.

Or both. Unless she says that she gives up all of them right now, they are going to keep pestering her.  She might keep giving away souls, then find out that she is too late and the combat is over.

Or she ends up giving away so many souls that she becomes too weak to influence a high level cleric of another god.

Is there a reason she can't just delay talking about the souls, until after she influences the vote?

She can't influence the meeting if Thor/Loki is standing there right next to hear making smalltalk while waiting for her to finish watching the meeting so they can talk about those souls.

Thor and Loki have an established right to discuss the business of dwarf souls with Hel as a part of their original bargain. She can't send them away from her realm until the matter is resolved, but if she just delays then they'll be present to see her breaking divine law by directly interfering with mortal affairs and then be permitted to either stop her or else be permitted to counter her interference, such as by manifesting true sunlight inside the council chamber.
