Looping marginally outer trapped surfaces, MOTS, have been found and seem to be a key phenomenon in black hole interiors during binary black hole mergers. These looping surfaces have also been found in the much simpler (and static) Schwarzschild black holes. The results presented in this thesis include observations of looping MOTS in charged, Reissner-Nordström black holes, where we find looping, cusping, and wiggling MOTS behavior depending on the charge of the black hole and stability of its inner horizon.
