I just realized something shocking and profound about the Korra finale: By leaving the spirit portals open Korra created her own crucible by giving Zaheer his powers and the ability to come after and destroy her! I don’t know if that was purposeful or if anyone else feels that way. If it was on purpose then that puts season 4 in a different perspective of how and where they will go. I think they should spend the season rebuilding Korra’s strength confidence and ability to hope. She’s at her lowest point at this moment even more so than at the end of season 1, and she needs to grow and learn from all the experiences that led up to it. Zaheer isn’t dead and there are WAY more red lotus cronies than everyone originally thought. Season 4 has the potential to be the most profound moving and uplifting season if done right, they can’t sweep what happened under the rug like season 2 did with the book 1 storylines, but they can’t be too heavy and overbearing with the seriousness either, humor and love helps people the most. This journey will be as much a spiritual as physical by reflecting upon herself and her avatar journey, Korra can reconnecte with the past avatars and hopefully make herself whole again. I hope that Zuko sticks around too cause if anyone can help its him, he knows firsthand what its like to have everything ripped from you and have to fight your way back. Mako, Bolin and Asami should help too they all love her for different reasons, whether its romantic or familial. Tenzin and Katara too. Everyone needs to be there for her now.
The more I’m watching and rewatching legend of korra book 3 the less I’m trusting Su but since she’s Toph’s daughter I’ll hold out hope she’s not evil but don’t you get a bit of an uncle scar vibe from her?
Avatar fandom we need to change nick’s mind and get our show back!!! We are not dead we need to make a ruckus prove that we love our show and we want it more! And I’ll leave you with WHAT THE FLAMEO NICK?!
Makorra done forever?! I read on a forum today that according to commentary from an advance copy Bryke is saying that makorra is done put a nail in that coffin. As much as I didn’t agree with a few of the decisions including korra’s attitude way too brash and one-sided and not open to others opinions, I still love makorra as a couple. In the first season they brought the best out in each other during the tournament and their fight with the equalists. Yes mako was with asami but korra convinced mako to comfort her even after mako had basically told her he was done with korra for accusing asami’s dad but they still rallied together. When korra was kidnapped and mako was faced with the possibility that korra was gone feelings that had been bubbling all along came to the surface, but notice mako goes to asami’s side when tarrlok knocks them out because they’re still a couple and he cares about her. And yes over the next couple of episodes he’s more attentive to korra then asami but both of them did comforting. Speaking of masami my theory is that the broke up between turning of the tides and skeletons in the closet and he then he apologized for everything and told he cares about her (btw notice he says “cares” not loves). When korra’s world crashed around her mako tried to be there for her but she pushed him away because she wasn’t ready to deal with a love declaration and loss of her bending. I wish they had known in advance there would be more then one season because I think the season 1 & 2 arcs could’ve been merged together and made more cohesive. I said in a earlier blog post I thought korra was suffering from having season arcs instead of the series arc like avatar. I have faith in the creators and I know that korra will eventually end with an awesome storyline and I hope leading up to it all the characters are going to learn more about each other and if makorra doesn’t get back together then I hope she gets someone who will help grow as a person and the avatar.
