I'm currently binge watching the third season and ready to discuss things whenever you feel like it. :D
wHERE DO I BEGIN
ANYTHING IS FAIR GAME AT THIS POINT.
Mainly I have the Fearsome Four (aka Zaheer, P’Li, Ghazan, and Ming Hua), the death of Tenzin maybe?!?!, and the possible betrayal of Suyin.
Well I mean with Suyin they seem like they haven’t finished with Lin and her… I don’t know if that’s just a gut feeling of mine or whether it’s true or not. There’s something off about her. She sent the Avatar, who is a teenager, and three other teenagers to look for powerful master benders who are looking for her, who nearly managed to kidnap her, and who snuck into Zaofu. She risked the wrath of her sister, whom she only just reconciled with after 30 years.
It just smells trouble or idiocy. I don’t take her for an idiot.
It’s obvious she cares for her family and regards family over anything else, but I really wonder whether her second priority is to the Red Lotus. I wouldn’t necessarily be surprised though if she was. I feel like it would’ve been just the thing that allows her to forgive and forget and have everyone in her city as she does. Like the pirate as her chef - he had to destroy the past to redeem himself, and then, only then, was she able to allow him to begin fresh and allow change.
If she is a member of the Red Lotus, I can’t say whether or not Aiwei would know. She’s Toph’s daughter, and though Toph let them go their own ways, I would bet my life that both her and Lin had the best earthbending training. Which means being able to detect truth. Which I wonder if she would be able to tell if Aiwei would be lying or not.
And the fact that she commented about a queen being outdated is really suspicious. Writers, musicians, artists always use every word/mark to their advantage. Sometimes even regular chatter can be a guide for something else. So it’s extremely suspicious about that comment.
But we’ll find out soon, THREE DAYS AHHH.
You’ve seen my one post about Tenzin, I don’t have many other reasons… just I really hope if they killed him off, they didn’t bring him back in the spirit world. It would be such a waste of a story that I’d be really disappointed.
I’m kinda hoping they did….ONLY FOR THE TALE THEY WOULD BRING IN BOOK 4. Assuming there’s a Book 4.
Like I said, I would love if they had the Five stages of Grief as five episode titles. They would so play into the hand of dealing with all that has happened. Or at least there would be one episode with everyone mourning. Well, scratch that, I trust that it wouldn’t just be one episode, but in terms of episode purposes it would be specified on in only one episode.
We haven’t even finished this season and I’m already speculating on Book 4.
Well, depending on the finale I have a feeling that Book 4 would either be titled “Peace” or “Chaos”. Or the first episode would be named Chaos. Hm.
I JUST REALIZED TENZIN HAD A REALLY TOUCHING MOMENT WITH HIS KIDS IN THE FIRST EPISODE
HE’S A GONER
THERE’S NO HOPE NOW.
A TOUCHING SCENE WITH THE KIDS AUTOMATICALLY PUTS YOU ON DEATH’S LIST
Anyway… I was thinking about how despicable Zaheer is…and I thought back to when he was breaking out of prison. And how he’s in love with P’Li and her right back. And how he’s still a horrible person. And how she loves that, and is a despicable woman as well. There is no redemption arc for them. There’s no way. They both believe in their cause too much, and their actions have totally thrown redemption out the window.
And it’s….weird. They’re in love. They’re murderers. Do they have family somewhere? Do Ming Hua and Ghazan have family somewhere? Have they tried dating before? How has their fanaticism interfered with there lives? How did they become terrorists?
You don’t usually think these things about terrorists, y’know? You shrug it off to crazy or bad childhood or something. But the writers took specific methods to show that they could be the everyday couple that’s your neighbor. They showed them as human, rather than a random horrible person who’s crazy. That kinda takes guts.
what was Nick thinking when they took them off air??????????
This is way above the quality of a lot of adult shows. This is way above the quality of almost every kids/family show I know of.
This show has always tried to give you the respect you deserve as a viewer, when they’ve been given ample time to work.
I cannot comprehend the executives at Nick. I literally can’t. Were they doing this to boost ratings? I don’t understand at all. There was no warning for this. This season wasn’t at all advertised. I learned about this season a week before it aired. There were posts saying “No! Legend of Korra is NOT cancelled!!!”
What the fuck is Nick doing?
Book 2 was a product of suddenly being drafted for a second and third season. It was sloppy in certain areas…….. but I still have no clue why they released two of the episodes at two in the morning. Like seriously????? Nothing warranted this??? And at two in the morning?????
Well this turned into a different topic. Nick pisses me off though, especially with the quality (to me) of this season.
Airbenders are kinda terrifying
They can warm themselves up from any temperature
They are very spiritual
They can bend air from your lungs
They can fly
If bald they can detect air around their head
They have gigantic flying bison as pets
They have tattoos
They can make killer cream cakes
I feel like if Toph found enlightenment anywhere, it would be with the badgermoles
This is a night of revelation because heres my third discovery:
Air is the element of freedom ~~~~Aang free’s everyone from Fire Lord Zuko’s tyrrany
Water is the element of change~~~~~Book 3 Korra
OH OH OH
OH MY GOD
ENTER THE VOID
OH MY GOD THATS IN THE QUOTE ZAHEER SAID FROM THE GURU
OH MY GOD MAKO JUST FUCKING STYLED HIS OWN EYEBROWS OH MY GOD
Damn i miss Toph
