I am so behind on Legend of Korra, you guys, but here I am finally catching up. Let me share my feels with you.
:O <–My face when I realized this stonecold badass was grownup Sokka.
Episode 6: Boy am I glad that they got the relationship drama episode out of the way so that we can move on with our lives. This episode was obnoxiously plotty and I loved it. I was surprised they moved past the pro-bending finals and onto the Amon business so quickly, but hell, they really were asking for him to attack.
This episode’s Who Is Amon guess: Still stuck on Son of Cabbages Guy. CABBAGECORP, YOUGAIZ.
Episode 7: Thank you, Avatars past, for allowing Asami to finally be badass. She drives like a boss and has killer karate moves. And with her father’s coming to light as an Amon supporter and her rejection of him, we finally have a cohesive and trusting Team Avatar. Yay! Side notes: New LOK OTP is Korrasami. Dat look on Korra’s face when Asami whipped out her ka-ra-tay. Just sayin’. Also, dear Lin Bei Fong: I love you, never change.
This episode’s Who Is Amon guess: Not sure. CEO Cabbages Guy seems more like a backer in the way Hiroshi is (if he’s even involved and wasn’t framed.)
Great face or greatest face?
Episode 8: This episode was filled with some serious McCarthy-level shit. Tarrlock is way out of line. At this point I’m becoming a supporter of the idea of Team Avatar going underground and helping Lin Bei Fong take out Amon. Except for the whole Korra-still-needs-to-learn-airbending thing. That presents a problem. Although with Korra captured and the rest of Team Avatar imprisoned, who knows what is going to happen next? Side note: the personality-less other three council members are starting to grate on my nerves. They always agree with Tarrlock no matter what. Also, Korra is righteously angry all the time. Why hasn’t she gone Avatar-state yet? Maybe next episode.
This episode’s Who Is Amon guess: Tarrlock. What better way to turn unaligned non-benders against all benders than to have bender authority figures arbitrarily and indefinitely imprison great swathes of them? Also, this would make it easy for Korra to undermine his follower base in the end—by revealing him to be a bender as well. Or maybe I just hate Tarrlock a lot.
Episode 9: YAY Lin Bei Fong! You are the baddest of badasses. Also,Tarrlock is a skeezy, nastyfaced grossjerk and I’m not sad he can’t bend anymore. I’m proud of Korra for rescuing herself, and for finally getting through to the memories Aang wanted her to see. Also exciting: seeing the grown-up Gaang kicking ass and taking names. Still no Avatar state from Korra, but perhaps she’ll figure out energybending from Aang and fix the borked benders? We’ll see, I guess. Side note: Even all grown up, Sokka still can’t leave his boomerang out of conversation. Also, will we ever find out why Yakon and son can bloodbend all weirdly, or are we just gonna have to assume it’s a bending quirk?
This episode’s Who Is Amon guess: Well, I guess I just hate Tarrlock (nicknames suggested by my brother: Tarrpoop? Pooplock?) a lot because he can’t be Amon. New guess: Amon is a cyborg since the bloodbending only partly affected him. STEAMPUNK (PART-)ROBOT OVERLORD? You decide!
Your thoughts, Korra watchers?
