- 'The Legend of Korra' series finale recap: Ending on its own terms
- Korra may have had the raw power, but Kuvira strategy, and so it was nice to see all that collide
- I hope that Korra will get her own comic where it will be explicit that her and Asami are dating
- They all wake up and Korra tells everyone that Raava is dead and that she’s the last Avatar
- So here are my three big beef sandwiches with the finale of Legend of Korra

- Katara cracked the iceberg open, which allowed Aang to end his time in the Avatar State
- Korra & Kuvira's Final Fight
- Korra consoles him as Asami, Iroh and Bolin ride Naga, heading for the mountains and the Equalist airbase
- Korra says they can’t wait to attack him but there is another way to beat him
Korra makes the decision to go back to Republic City, but on her way there, she poses for this dudes Wall of Avatar (who only includes Aang by the way). She even getting dusted by some petty thieves, y’all. Cats ain’t scared of her at all like she rockin the number 2 headband in Afro Samurai.
I don't think I fully got it, but I'm still generally happy where things ended up for Korra's sense of self
The WPA-style opening was a quick and fun way to catch up on some of the improvements made in Republic City. One such improvement was the completion of Varrick's magnet-powered rail system, which was alluded to in Book Three's Zaofu arc and later backed by Asami's Future Industries.
After climbing her way to the head of the mecha, Korra makes quick work of Kuvira's co-pilots and focuses all of her attention on the conqueror herself. Unlike their past battles, this was a very even match as Korra was able to hold her own and gain the upper hand against the bender who had merely toyed with her in the past. The battle stopped momentarily as the head of the mecha came crashing back down to earth. It started up again inside the spirit wilds but didn't last much longer after that.
Watching Korra and the team go Skywalker and Dak against the AT-AT of Kuvira’s Colossus was so great. For a moment there I really thought they were going to bring it down with Bolin’s lavabending, Airbenders doing stunts,Meelo coming through in the clutch with the paint bomb plan, Korra pelting it with chunks of masonry, and the Beifongs and Bolin dropping a building on it. Everyone just going, as they say, HAM.

A sequel to Avatar: the Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after Aang's original journey and follows the Avatar after Aang, a 17 year old girl from the Water Tribe named Korra. Set in a steam punk-style universe, the show's aesthetic beguiles viewers while the mature storytelling helps audiences feel heard. Considering the show also boasts magic-infused martial arts, The Legend of Korra series is ripe for video-game adaptation.
If you replace Asami with a male character, not only is there not any ambiguity about the intention of the scene, but there's not any need for ambiguity either, since a kiss would've gotten through standards and practices in that context. So I was giddy about this, not only as someone who really loved the relationship between these two and found myself thinking, "Yes. I like this development" but that the show chose to (almost) end itself with that image. It's a bold, progressive closing note that I hope other shows that target a child and teen demographic take note of.
For those of you worried about the gay agenda, welcome to hell. Children’s programming is starting to explicitly recognise the existence of nonheterosexual people, and ‘people’ is definitely the operative word here. Not caricatures where their sexuality defines their personality, but real, fleshedout characters, with interesting storyarcs and relationships, who aren’t straight.
As much as I enjoyed the story, I didn’t enjoy how the show handled the restoration of Korra’s powers
That’s right, I’m one of those greedy bisexuals you keep hearing about. Maybe it’s okay if this is the best representation we’ve gotten to this point (Roth Cornet at IGN called it a “hugely significant moment of television”), but my Christmas wish is for this to be the “this is the new bare minimum” stepping stone instead of the “this is as close as we can get” wall.
I understand a big part of the writers’ goals with Legend of Korra was to make it a distinct show from the Last Airbender – and it is. But I think they went too far. One of the things I was most looking forward to in Legend of Korra was seeing an older, wiser (yet still incurably goofy) Aang offering sage wisdom and humorous quips to an eye-rolling Korra. We were teased with this possibility with the visions of Yakone in season one, and it seemed like Korra was going to come into a new state of spiritual understanding in which the audience would be rewarded with occasional appearances of Advisor Aang. Instead, Aang makes a brief appearance to Tenzin, not Korra, in season two, before vanishing forever into the annals of Avatar history. The perfect segue to naturally integrate Aang into the story, while still having it be Korra’s story, was never employed.
She connects with herself, and remembers Wan asking Raava why the dark and light hadn’t killed each other. Raava tells him that neither can be destroyed. Korra connects with her spirit, which then walks out of her body and becomes a giant spirit version of herself. She travels to Republic City just like Unalaq did, and fights him.
Will never forget watching the end of The Legend of Korra (helpful hints) and then immediately calling my friends to talk about it. Such a beautiful final scene. I was obsessed with finding fanart and uh fan fiction after that. The follow-up comics were alright. I definitely YouTube ripped this track into my iTunes.
Korra and Tenzin's relationship has really been settled at the end of Book 2, and the series never found more of them to really do, and I am forever sad about that. Apart from Asami and Korra, Tenzin and Korra was my favorite relationship on the show.
There is a pretense to see Varrick and Zhu Li ending up together. Their relationship, in some ways, mirrors Tony Stark’s and Pepper Potts’s – the genius prima donna and the normally cool but sometimes flustered “assistant” he couldn’t live without. Yet, I’m not sure ending the show with their marriage was fully justified.
Unfortunately, not all political plot lines can be as enjoyable as that. In Republic City, we were introduced to Prince Wu (Sunil Malhotra), the soon-to-be Earth King. Obviously, this is a character we're supposed to hate, but even in that context, I wasn't that amused by him here.
Alex Hirsch (Gravity Falls) said in a reddit thread that he wanted to include queer characters in the show, but was forbidden by the network. Greg Weisman made various statements about how he was forbidden from including queer characters (such as Kaldur on Young Justice) on his shows forcing him and his team to rely solely on subtext. Dwayne McDuffie made a statement that Ritchie from Static Shock was gay, but they weren’t allowed to acknowledged it in show so he too was forced to rely on subtext. Maggie Sawyer (who is a lesbian in the DC comics) made an appearance in Superman: The Animated Series, but the writers weren’t allowed to formally acknowledge her sexuality, so they slipped in a scene where she’s visiting her girlfriend in the hospital. Even the famous Marceline/Princess Bubblegum pairing have faced down the censorship block. While the creators have acknowledge they dated, as far as I know in show any mentions of a romantic relationship have been stringently cut.
It's been hinted throughout Book Four that Korra and Kuvira have a lot in common, and I liked how that idea tied into the Spirit World scenes, as Korra compared Kuvira's fears to her own. It made a lot of sense that Kuvira would go to such lengths to protect and serve her people after going through the hardships she'd faced as a child. But while her surrender at that point was understandable, I do kind of wish she'd stayed true to her convictions instead of admitting defeat. I certainly wasn't expecting her last words to be a meek apology to Su. Regardless, Kuvira's arrest was a fitting end to her reign of terror and the Earth Empire.
Not surprisingly, the Beifong sisters made quick work of the laser cannon, which was pretty much their last big fight scene. Short as it was, I liked how Lin was able to sneak in one last "Nice work" to her sister after Su destroyed the spirit vine canisters. Not a bad contribution for the pair.
First, I love the idea of a brash, military enforcer as an antagonist, especially coming off of Zaheer's egalitarian ex-convict. But also, I'm always impressed with the creators' ability to create new and inventive fighting styles for their characters - in Kuvira's case, using metal bands to incapacitate her enemies.

In The Legend of Korra, this is a constant problem for Korra, whom none of the authority figures of the world respect for being the Avatar. This is initially due to her habit of bad first impressions, where she tended to do more harm than good, combined with being secluded from the world for her entire adolescence and the world's changing views on politics and opinion of needing an Avatar. Despite her best efforts however, most leaders continue to outright look down on Korra, dismiss her requests for aid, and sometimes outright work against her throughout the course of the series. Even during the final season, if Korra can't immediately solve a problem, she'll be ignored. This is most egregious in the episode "Beyond the Wilds" where a conference of world leaders included Prince Wu who was invited although he had literally nothing at all to contribute aside from his claim to the throne, but they left out Korra, the Avatar and the Keeper of Balance. Even her mentor Tenzin accidentally treats her rather poorly. Apparently, Prince Wu was the only one who actually thought Korra should have been invited.

Desiree: This is a tough question because while I think there’s some merit in subtext, especially given censorship, it can be increasingly frustrating to have things so ambiguous. Plus subtext gets you Dumbledore, which was just insulting.
Legend of Korra finale
When The Legend of Korra first began production, it was intended as a single season spin-off of the incredibly popular ATLA. Sometime before the last episode aired, Nickelodeon decided to extend the series, which left creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino in a bit of a difficult position. ATLA began with an established antagonist and plans for Aang’s development (along with his friends), enough to carry the show for multiple seasons. With Korra (https://aprel-vologda.ru/hack/?patch=8494), from the beginning the show restricted itself to a Big Bad each season, and as such its finale (see this here) doesn’t have the impact on the universe ATLA’s did. This has been a problem the show has faced since its first season, so if Korra’s finale (you could try here) feels a little underwhelming, it’s not something we didn’t see coming.

Harry Potter was written from Harry’s point of view, and at what point would it have been appropriate for an adult teacher to discuss his sexual preferences with a minor student? If there had been some scenes not from Harry’s point of view, that would have been different.
Aang didn't enter the Avatar State at any point in season 3 except for Avatar: The Last Airbender's series finale. The fourth and final part of the Sozin's Comet arc saw Aang finally confront Fire Lord Ozai, who was more powerful than ever before thanks to the comet. Aang only enters the Avatar State near the end of the battle and the use of this power allows Aang to overpower Ozai. But, he doesn't want to kill Ozai and exits the Avatar State before delivering a deadly strike. Aang instead decides to use energybending to strip Ozai of his bending abilities.
During Kuvira's assault on Republic City, she searches high and low for Korra and Team Avatar to no avail. That changes when one of her soldiers is able to track Baatar's message back to the Future Industries building and wastes no time trying to destroy it along with everyone inside.
And what Korra is doing for sexuality, Steven Universe is doing for gender. There’s an episode where Steven, our pudgy young hero, fuses through magical gem powers with his friend Connie. They morph into a large womanly looking person with no defined gender, at least certainly not defined as either “male” or “female”. So kids today are looking at their TV screens (or laptop screens or ipads or tablets or whatever ten year olds have under their control these days) and seeing programming that is telling them “it’s okay to not be a guy or a girl.
Legend Of Korra's season 4 two-part finale ended the show on a high note. In “Day Of The Colossus”, Korra (click this link now) and Team Avatar have narrowly survived Kuvira’s attack and must come up with a plan to take down her practically invincible mecha. Hiroshi Sato – the estranged father of Korra’s love interest Asami – is freed from jail to help them defeat Kuvira and suggests destroying the mecha from the inside. Hiroshi bravely sacrifices himself so Team Avatar can gain access to the mecha, but not before he and Asami reconcile.
You’ve come a long way, Avatar Korra. And we’ve all come a long way together; thanks for being such a great community to discuss this show with! It’s been great having a built in group of friends who want to pick apart each episode each week.
Western society largely prides itself on being “inclusive” while oftentimes failing to define what is meant by the term. Should we criticize the Avatar universe for not being “inclusive” of all possible cultural backgrounds? Should we rage that there are no clearly Hispanic, African, or, gasp, European characters? The answer is no. The reason? The context of two syndicated TV series made it clear the Avatar world is Asian-inspired.
I’m happy for the strides that are being made for queer people in the media, and I hope as more changes politically and in the world at large that those strides will be reflected in children’s media and all media in general. There seems to always be backsliding though. For every piece of media we get that’s not centering around a cisgender, straight white guy we get five more that are. And it doesn’t help that the few that get through have such a pushback.
Mako has feelings for Korra but also has a girlfriend, Asami. Asami is the daughter of a wealthy man, Hiroshi Sato (who turns out to be evil and working with Amon) and joins Team Avatar using her martial arts knowledge and an electrified glove from Amon’s soldiers. The love drama could have been interesting but I don’t think it was handled well. It involves all of the main heroes liking each other, becoming unnecessarily complicated. The Last Airbender handled it better with Aang having a crush on Katara but it wasn’t the main focus of the characters.
Team Korra survives the attack, and scrambles to come up with a plan to stop Kuvira’s invulnerable mech. In a grand battle that unfolds across the entire city, Korra, the airbenders, and other members of the resistance, engage in a desperate, losing battle to stop Kuvira. Meanwhile, Asami and her father Hiroshi work with Varrick and Zhu Li to upgrade the last two hummingbird jets with plasma cutters capable of penetrating the mech’s armor, while Prince Wu works with Pema to help evacuate the remaining civilians. These scenes are filled with fantastic, quiet moments in the midst of all the action, as many of the characters display just how much they’ve grown in response to the crisis at hand. Asami and her father make amends, Varrick hilariously proposes to Zhu Li (using an adorable variation on their “do the thing” catchphrase), and Prince Wu suddenly proves himself to be an inspiring and noble protector of his people.
There are also characters like Tenzin and Lin who operate as sensible, serious adults. They’re smart and they’re talented benders, but they don’t go through much development. They start out serious, and they stay serious. They basically exist to tell the younger characters “You shouldn’t do this but now that you’re doing it, I’m going to help you”. Asami falls into this category too. She’s introduced in the fourth episode and we find out she’s rich, she’s trained in martial arts and she opposes what her father is doing when we find out he’s evil. But outside of the romantic conflict of the group, she doesn’t add anything significant to the story. It seems like she just exists to be a roadblock preventing Korra and Mako from getting together. Hopefully, she’ll get more development in later seasons.
You see, people need to have a reason to look at things differently. If you don’t give them a reason, they won’t.
All the new airbenders got to show off their training as they tried to knock over the mecha with gusts of wind after Bolin tried to unsteady it with lavabending. Varrick and Zhu Li took down some mecha suits and EMP. Siblings got to team up inside the mecha with Lin and Su taking out the cannon arm and Mako and Bolin working together to try and destroy the engine before the show half-heartedly teased a noble sacrifice from Mako. The show even paid off that brief subplot of Asami and her father reconciling as he helped bring the hummingbird suits up to snuff and then sacrificed himself for the sake of the mission.

Not only have the original characters had their time, but some of them have grown so old, they’ve passed away, and even their kids are passing the torch. As of the end of the first season, the only original character confirmed to be alive is Katara. We know Aang has died because that’s the only way Korra can even be the Avatar, but it’s implied that Sokka and Zuko have both died as well. Toph is mentioned several times but we have no idea at this point whether or not she’s alive.
Tarrlok tells them he only found out after he’d been captured, and begins the story of how everything transpired. Amon’s real name is Noatok, and is from the Northern Water Tribe; he is a Waterbender and a Bloodbender. It started with Yakone, their father, escaping prison and changing his identity. Noatok was the elder sibling and always looked out for Tarrlok. Life was good, apparently, until they discovered they were Waterbenders.
It doesn't mean I'm blind to its faults, as I'm sure my frustrations with Book 2 proved. Korra could be a maddening show sometimes, especially as it seemed like Korra herself never really grew all that much until Book 4. The show's attempts at romance were never very convincing—THOUGH NOW WE KNOW WHY—and its Big Bads were arguably unevenly executed. Some folks didn't care for the technological advancements, and some just didn't care for Korra as a character.
The series finale finds Aang facing some of the greatest challenges of his life. This episode provides a satisfying ending to the animated series. The sequel series, “The Legend of Korra,” would air from 2021 to 2021.
All Avatars have the power to enter into what is known as the Avatar State. The Avatar State gives the Avatar access to cosmic energy and grants them a connection to past Avatars, which can increase their bending capabilities. In some instances, the use of the Avatar State allows the Avatar to take on the appearance of previous iterations.

Rebecca: There’s few I can remember right now, beyond obvious historical stuff like the Mystique/Destiny relationship being hidden from readers in the X-Men comics of the silver and bronze age. I think most of the history of the media has been a back and forth between network restrictions and creators wanting to get stuff in under the radar (remember when I Love Lucy thought “pregnant” was too offensive for television).
The extended Team Avatar (now including a bunch of Airbenders and almost all the Beifongs) fails after every attempt to take down the colossus. Things steadily escalate from dropping paint on the windows to lavabending under the feet to dropping buildings on it. Each plan seems like it might work, but Kuvira’s machine shrugs off every attempt. The team only comes up with a successful plan when Asami’s sad dad arrives with a plan to help the team infiltrate the machine. Of course, he dies in the process, but everyone saw that coming, right?
Aside from the examples Desiree mentions above, Batwoman’s gayness has been downplayed significantly in the comics. While Northstar still appears monthly in Amazing X-Men, his husband is almost never present. I was shocked to see the Anole story get an entire issue to itself, because Anole, as it turns out, is gay as well. Storm’s bisexuality as relates to Yukio was not even touched on in her recent solo title.
Previous seasons of ATLA and LoK have had the benefit of being named after whatever element (or theme, in the case of “Change”) dominated the story. The problem with Book Four’s title, “Balance,” is both series have been about balance. While the concept is definitely explored throughout this season, it isn’t really done much more than in the past.
Some fans have called the ending with Korra and Asami queerbaiting, akin to the documented queerbaiting in shows such as Supernatural. Would anyone say, given the lack of confirmation, that it’s similar? And if it’s different what specifically makes it different?
Not the non-functional for decoration only armband Korra! That’s like Carmelo Anthony getting rid of his shooting sleeve.

At least, that was what was available in adult movies. As a child, I had nothing except the heavily censored characters in Sailor Moon. But now children have something. Not only children, but young girls of color have something. While the show can certainly appeal to a larger audience, it’s still so important to have more media that focuses outside of the straight, white, cis male point of view. Avatar and Korra have both brought that to the table and have now included another point of view that will help so many people, both children and adults, so much.
But then the thing about Anthony Goldstein? That could’ve been mentioned with no ripple whatsoever. I’ve seen people criticize this as wanting to get the credit for being progressive without doing the hard part. I have to agree that this complaint is not entirely without merit.

The theme for the last month has been how Korra, as an animated television show aired on a children’s network (namely Nickelodeon), has pushed boundaries with representation. Korra and Asami, the two girls who were in a relationship with the same guy (Mako) during series one and two, walk off into a sunsetlike background hand in hand, staring deeply into each others eyes. So yeah, bisexuals exist in children’s television now.
Your Favorite Nerd’s Favorite Highlights of E3
In season 1 (Book One: Air), Korra honed her airbending abilities with the help of Aang’s son Tenzin and took on villain Amon, the leader of an anti-bender group called the Equalists. In Legend Of Korra’s second season, Book Two: Spirits, Korra came under the tutelage of her shady uncle Unalaq resulting in a civil war and a portal to the Spirit World being opened. Season 3 (Book Three: Change) was the show’s best yet and saw Korra come up against her most formidable foe to date – Zaheer, the leader of the anarchist group Red Lotus.
Korra apologizes, and eventually Katara gets her back on the beams to finally hit that two step. By the way, all accomplishments should be crystallized by hugging a big ass polar bear dog at the end of them.
Ignoring these people, whether they’re people of colour, LGBTQIA+, disabled, or any number of oppressed groups, is saying that it’s better if they don’t exist. It’s saying that in the perfect world of children’s programmes, anomalies of humanity don’t have a place. That’s wrong, and it’s what we’re told everyday from the minute we understand language.

I enjoyed the majority of the season’s main story, focusing on the rising threat of Amon against benders. He reminds me of political leaders you see in the real world who disguise their evil intentions behind righteous-sounding rhetoric. He’s dangerous because he’s trying to create a divide between people with an “us vs. them” mentality rather than trying to bring people together. It’s something we see in real-world politics all the time and it never leads to anything but more anger and more fighting. As much as I enjoyed the story, I didn’t enjoy how the show handled the restoration of Korra’s powers. The spirit of Aang gives her back her abilities because she’s in deep despair. It feels too clean and too quick. I would have liked to see her have to go through some sort of trial or journey first. The second season could have been her looking for a way to regain her powers. It’s already been established that she struggles with connecting to the spirit world, so why not spend time making her focus on that so when she does connect with Aang, it feels like something she’s earned?
The Legend Of Korra's fourth and final season Book Four: Balance is set three years later and sees Korra (why not check here) still weakened from her battle with Zaheer, traumatized by her past and doubting herself as the Avatar. She must get it together to face former ally Kuvira who is trying to establish a totalitarian Earth Empire. An initial confrontation between the two leaves Korra defeated though she finds unlikely help in the form of Zaheer who agrees to help her overcome her past trauma, including their own battle. Meanwhile, Kuvira has built a spirit energy super-cannon attached to a mecha suit she’s planning to use to attack Republic City.
While the direction they took isn’t surprising, the entire subplot is flavored with Varrick’s personality, making it far more entertaining that it would be with any other characters. Although, if one more person said a variation of, “Do the thing,” the joke would officially be dead.
The Legend of Korra has Kuvira, the Big Bad of the final season. Originally Suyin's protege who helped save Korra's father, she leaves to attempt to help stabilize and unite the weakened Earth Kingdom following the events of Zaheer's anarchist uprising. Over the next three years, she rose from her position as a city's guard captain to a highly respected and feared public figure. Desiring to keep the Earth Kingdom safe and united, and seeing the monarchy as obsolete, she usurped the Prince and reestablished the Earth Kingdom as the Earth Empire, which she ruled with an iron fist. Once Korra saved her life, she was able to make Kuvira see just how far she'd fallen from her previously noble intentions, convincing her to surrender willingly.
Rockefeller just got a contract to redesign Republic City’s infrastructure. Mako going on big stakeouts when he isn’t opening his letter sounding like the automated weather channel. Bolin of course writing his letters like the personified Alfred Prufrock. I half expected him to drop some Perloined Letter references in them joints to Korra. He’s joined up with Kuvira (Bolin Incorporated #1) to help stabilize the Earth Kingdom.
I’ve written about sexuality in children’s programming, specifically Korra, before. It’s actually pretty much exclusively all I’ve written about because, hey, I can do that if I want. I also do it because I genuinely believe it to be the most important tool we have in fighting to be recognised. It shows kids that it’s okay to be incredibly, wildly different. It makes it powerful to be incredibly, wildly different.
The Lieutenant sees them and tells them, believing them to be Equalists, that they’ve been reassigned to the rally at the Pro Bending arena. When he leaves, Korra says she knows a secret way into the Temple. They climb into the attic but Mako notices they’re not along.
Unlike most previous finales, the most prominent use of the Avatar State is defensive, with Korra protecting herself and Kuvira from explosion caused by Kuvira using the weapon (powered by spirit energy) in the Republic City spirit wilds. It’s a deviation from the standard formula of getting the hero to go Super Saiyan to stop the bad guy, and given Korra’s change over the series, it’s appropriate that her final moment of action is protecting someone. The explosion tears through reality, creating a new portal to the spirit world in the ruins of Republic City.
I love Avatar: The Last Airbender. Binging on the whole series during the summer of 2009 was what finally convinced me to start writing my own book, An Autumn Veil, in October of that year. I consider myself a student of Avatar. I have studied the martial arts and philosophical roots of the show, the intricate backstories and relationships between the characters, and the perfectly plotted thematic structure (I am, of course, ignoring the ill-conceived “Great Divide”). Anyone who wants to learn to tell stories well should study Avatar: The Last Airbender.
Bottom Line: A fantastic end to everything that has happened in Book Four, but it also works as a finale to the series. It’s sad to see the world of Avatar go, but the last two episodes are beautiful and exciting. And a huge shout out to the showrunners for putting Korra and Asami together romantically. It’s a big step for media and brings much needed representation to children’s television.

There are levels where I think the two pairings are similar and are different. I think Uranus and Neptune’s relationship, while not overtly stated, was more explicit and also more obviously present. On the other hand, they’re still something of a side couple. Sailor Moon remains a show about the straight-aligned lead (although her relationship with Seiya could be interpreted as having queer elements) and her group of straight friends. All of the “Outer Senshi” were side characters in a way. Korra and Asami benefit from one of the characters being the lead. So, in terms of representation that’s an advantage Haruka and Michiru don’t have.
A couple of weeks ago, Nickelodeon dropped the Book Four trailer, revealing that the final season would take place three years after the fall of Zaheer. Since then, fans have been wondering what Korra's been doing to recuperate in that time, given her demoralized state at the end of Book Three. In a bold but intriguing move, the Book Four premiere was decidedly not focused on Korra, but rather the rest of Team Avatar and what they'd been up to in the last three years.
Desperately fighting for her freedom, Kuvira escapes into the spirit wilds to avoid another direct confrontation with Korra. After spotting the Spirit Cannon, she makes one last attempt to take down the Avatar using her superweapon, only for it to start absorbing energy and spinning out of control. Showing her enemy what it means to be the Avatar, Korra jumps in front of Kuvira and blocks the cannon's blast with her energybending, creating an entirely new spirit portal in the process.
After almost losing Asami to the vengeful leader of the Triple Threat Triads, Korra pulled Asami aside during a political campaign. That’s when she told her girlfriend that she loved her. Asami quickly returned the sentiment, and it’s as adorable as you think it is.
The series takes place about seventy years after The Last Airbender. The four nations are living under relative peace now that Zuko and Aang ended the hundred-year war. The Legend of Korra feels like an authentic follow-up to The Last Airbender despite being structured very differently from the original series. In The Last Airbender, Aang and his friends had to travel the world to take down an evil nation bent on world domination. In The Legend of Korra, there’s no need to travel the world like this. Instead, the series focuses on Korra living in Republic City, trying to help the city with its crime and corruption. The stakes aren’t as high, but they still feel important.

As with Avatar, Korra's story would continue after the show in graphic novel form. The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars would pick up right after the ending of the series, with Avatar co-creator Michael DiMartino penning the story. Turf Wars would also be published in three parts, with the first debuting in 2021 and the latter two in 2021, while all three were released in collected form in 2021.
You grow up thinking there is no place in the world for you, that you’re utterly alone, that you’re different the way that spiders and centipedes are dif erent. You grow up alone when you’re not straight and not cis. And kids still waiting to discover Korra, or the mountain of programming it’ll hopefully inspire, they won’t. They’ll have Korra and Asami, they’ll have Steven and Connie, they’ll have people to relate to in ways that straight people have always taken for granted.
I recount all of this madness to remind all of us that Korra likely shouldn't have been as good as it was given everything that the show's teams had to experience, but that it likely could've been better at times as well had the show not been under such intense production pressure. Aesthetically, it's a small wonder that Books 3 and 4 looked as good as they given how painful Book 2 often looked, and that kind of a rebound is to be commended. Structurally, Book 1 ended up feeling like a stand alone novel while Books 2, 3, and 4 comprised their own trilogy. It may be why Book 1 remains my favorite of all the seasons.
- For example, in the first episode of Book 3, Asami flipped her hair at Korra
- And a huge shout out to the showrunners for putting Korra and Asami together romantically
- Sheeeyet, I almost wanted to go Detroit Red on Korra when she did that shit
- Legend of Korra: Mythology
- Legend of Korra: The Revelation

- In contrast, Korra was a hot-headed, energetic young woman who relished fighting and adventure

The show never really slows down as the team works to stop her. They dodge blasts from the massive gun and buildings explode beautifully in the background (once again, great animation and sound work). Once inside the machine, the battles are smaller, but still high risk. Mako has a dramatic moment which actually serves as one of his best scenes in the series and Korra’s fight with Kuvira is stunning.
I mean, yeah, sure, they didn't actually kiss, but the creators literally ended the show with them holding hands and staring longingly into each others' eyes. I'd say that's pretty irrefutable.
Episode 11, Skeletons in the Closet, started by showing Amon and his Equalists in charge of Republic City; he even put an Amon mask on the statue of Aang. Mr Sato is talking at a rally for Equalists, saying that they must fight against the United Forces, who are on their way.
Asami and Korra eventually convinced him to build new homes for these misplaced people, but he only did so as a political move. The real hero and leader of this story was Zhu Li. She became the de facto authority when it came to helping the refugees. All of that good will paired with her dizzying efficiency and the help of one special docu-mover made her the perfect candidate for president. She won over Raiko in a landslide. And before you ask, yes, Varrick was thrilled about his wife’s new career path.
Season 1, episode 20 of Avatar: The Last Airbender featured the greatest showcase of Aang's ability up to that point when using the Avatar State. It happens when the Fire Nation are invading the Northern Water Tribe and after Admiral Zhao kills the Moon Spirit's mortal koi fish form. Aang then enters the Avatar State and combines himself with the Ocean Spirit, forming a giant koi fish made of water. Aang uses his increased power to wipe out the Fire Nation army and save the Northern Water Tribe. His connection to the Ocean Spirit ends once the Moon Spirit is restored by Yue.
The Legend of Korra was the very first show I wrote about for TV.com, a wrap-up post that Jen suggested when she and I first discussed me joining the site. As a result, the show has a degree of freelancer sentiment attached to it for me, and due to that, it will always be a little bit special to me.
I’m disappointed to say that this aspect of the finale is a lazy portrayal of real things real people deal with, and tacking it on to the last few moments of the show without making it feel like a narratively-justified revelation should be called what it is: half-baked. Artists shouldn’t get a free pass just for doing something popular, either socially or within their fanbase. The storyteller’s job is to make me believe that this is a logical, natural step in the story’s progression. Nobody should have walked with Korra into that spirit portal.
There are some technical issues we could pick at regarding the machine – for instance, the heroes travel through its limbs while it moves, yet everything looks motionless from their perspective. Overall though, every moment of the fight against Kuvira and her weapon is exciting.
Tarrlok and Yakone searched for Noatok for days, but couldn’t find him. They believed him to have perished in the storm. Their mother was never the same and Yakone stopped teaching Bloodbending, as with Noatok gone, so were his plans for revenge.
The Legend of Korra is good, but it’s not as amazing as The Last Airbender. The writers, in their efforts to distinguish the show from its predecessor, made a lot of choices that were deliberately opposite from The Last Airbender. Since Aang traveled all over the world, Korra stays in one city. Aang only knew air bending, so Korra knows everything except air bending. Aang was reluctant to be the Avatar so Korra fully embraces it. It’s not that these choices are bad, but after a while, they become predictable. While the show has a lot of elements that try to be a counter to the original, it also has some very obvious callbacks. Like Aang, Korra’s closest two companions are siblings, one who serves as a comic relief character, and one who is more mature and serious. Where Aang had his flying bison as a pet, Korra has Naga, who is a cross between a dog and a polar bear. Aang’s group also had the small money, Momo, and Bolin has a ferret, Pabu.
This infuriates Aang and he enters the Avatar State again
Aang entered the Avatar State on multiple occasions during Avatar: The Last Airbender, and every time it happened, Aang demonstrated what made his powers so unique. Once Aang returned after a 100-year hibernation, the last living Airbender didn't have any time to waste in order to save the world. Aang had to quickly master the arts of Waterbending, Earthbending, and Firebending so that he would be powerful enough to defeat the Fire Nation. With each new bending ability he learned, Aang gained more powers, but being the Avatar gave him another special ability.
To recap, throughout the series, Korra’s romantic interests haven’t remained in the spotlight as much as Aang’s did in ATLA, especially after Book Two of Korra. She was in a relationship with Mako early on, who has been similarly involved with Asami Sato. Some fans have interpreted romantic undertones in the interactions between Korra and Asami since the first season (disclaimer: this reviewer is among them). However, as the series approached its end, the common expectation was that Korra and Mako would end up together. After all, the hero has to end up with someone, right? And neither Nick nor the showrunners would be brave enough to pair up Korra and Asami.
When trying to force information from Baatar Jr. on Kuvira's plans, it was looking as though someone was going to draw the short straw and have to resort to violence. Korra, however, chose a very different option with stellar results. Instead of threatening to hurt Baatar physically, she promised that, for as long as she was on the run from Kuvira, she would drag Baatar along for the ride, ensuring he would never see his fiance again. Needless to say, this, along with Kuvira almost killing him to get to Korra, worked a lot better in forcing Baatar to work for Team Avatar.
- Korra finally getting together with Asami
- She sees herself in Kuvira, not just because it is true, but because Korra has learned empathy
- Just look at their titles: Spirits, Change, and Balance—Korra is all about internal growth and maturation
- So, them being able to get on with life without her, is a bit devastating for Korra
- Korra heals him as Team Avatar explains that Amon always seems to be one step ahead
- When Katara can’t do it, Korra goes off on her own to contemplate her future
- Scarlet Witch in WandaVision Finale Post-Credits Scene
- Two tracks in particular stand out – one for Mako and another to close out the finale

Same with BBC’s Sherlock, though there have been plenty of instances where other characters comment on Sherlock and John’s relationship. It’s repeatedly treated as a joke, or John will quickly assert the fact that he’s straight like in the episode “Scandal” where quite literally John says to Irene, “If anyone still cares, I’m not gay,” even though throughout the same episode Irene comments on their close relationship.

The Legend of Korra Episode 11 and 12 Review: Korra’s Season Finale
Desiree: For me, personally, it feels amazing. I realized I was attracted to both men and women romantically after I graduated high school. Like many other queer people, I always had that inkling in the back of my mind that I was different. I wasn’t the same as other girls who only seemed to show interest in boys.
The series’ final image of Korra and Asami going hand-in-hand into the Spirit World for a much-needed vacation is perfect in this regard. These are two women who have wrestled with their legacies and the roles the world wanted them to fulfill, and rejected them in favor of a destiny of their own making. When they return, it’ll be to take part in the world they helped shape in their struggle to find themselves.
I’m going to go ahead and consider “Korasami” confirmed and canon. There is part of me that says: “oh, this is the Modern Family issue, give us the kiss, we got a kiss with Mako, didn’t we?
The next time Aang enters the Avatar State is in season 1, episode 3, when he visits the Southern Air Temple with Katara and Sokka. It is here that he learns Firebenders killed his former teacher, Monk Gyatso, while Aang was in the iceberg. Aang's emotions cause him to enter the Avatar State again, but Katara manages to calm him down with the reassurance that Aang isn't alone anymore.
Most of the show’s characters are enjoyable. Korra is a strong, stubborn protagonist. She takes her duty as the Avatar very seriously, but she’s also not very disciplined. She struggles with certain abilities like air bending and connecting with the spirit world, so she shrugs them off, focusing on things she excels at. One thing I noticed about her is her fighting style. She comes from the Water Tribe, but when she’s in battle, her go-to element is actually fire. She tends to use fire offensively, earth defensively, and water as a mixture of both. This is in stark contrast to Aang, who, even after learning different elements, always turned to air, his natural ability, first.
He showed up last week in a quick scene during the evacuation order, but now he's playing the trombone. I'm glad his hair is all better.
Flashback to the Southern Water Tribe where it gets up to 18 degrees in the summer and Tenzin comes to visit Korra and check her progress. We gonna do this shit frame by frame for maximum feels.
Zhu Li’s first official order as president was a wise one, which is fitting for such a wise woman. She gave the Air Nation the rights to Republic City’s portal to the Spirit World and its surrounding wilds. This decision came after former President Raiko attacked the Air Nation over the rights to the portal while they were peacefully protesting.
Korra actually sitting down to talk with Kuvira in the spirit world was a huge step for her. It was different from sitting down to talk to Zaheer in Book 3 in the spirit world as Zaheer was interested only in lecturing and stalling for time. Here, it was about relating to Kuvira, not coming down to her level but meeting her at it and acknowledging Kuvira as a person with an emotional inner-world and trying to find the similarities between the two of them. I had never much thought of Kuvira as a mirror of Korra since my concept of Kuvira largely hinged on how she melded different aspects of her villainous predecessors, but the conceit worked. While I still think that Korra's journey to this point hasn't been the smoothest from a writing and plotting standpoint across the entire series, Book 4 is easily the soundest installment in this regard, and I'm very grateful for it.

But I think having more queer representation in children’s shows is very important. I’m not lesbian/bisexual, but as a Jewish woman I’ve always wanted to see more people like me on television and been frustrated that most children’s media seems aimed at little boys expected to grow up to be straight men. Furthermore, my father is gay, and with greater acceptance of LGBT people having and adopting children while being out, I think it’s important for children of both orientations who have LGBT parents to see more characters and families who look like their parents on television.
Legend Of Korra Season 4 Finale Recap
How do up the stakes when topping out in the last installment? You can’t, and this is what The Legend of Korra did best. It only ever upped the stakes – both on a micro and macro level – incrementally over the course of the last two years, thus leading to the final, ultimate battle in Republic City against a giant robot.
Barring the advances of modern medicine, same-sex couples are incapable of producing biological children. Do you think this doesn’t weigh on those same-sex couples who desire to start families? Do you not think there are a whole host of complex issues surrounding this burning, contemporary question?

Alright Pema, you’re right, if you raised that little fart machine, you can wrangle the crowds with Wu. Everyone gets in on the action this episode, even Tahno. Hiroshi Sato is back as predicted, and well, you didn’t really see him getting out of this alive, did you?
Meanwhile, Mako and Bolin are imprisoned in blocks of ice, being watched over by the twins. Mako first tries reasoning with Desna, who starts to come around. But Eska cuts him off, and encourages him to stay true to their father, at which point Bolin bursts into tears and tells Eska he loves her, and that he wishes the world wasn’t about to end so that they could give it another chance.
Honestly, I could probably write a whole other review just going over those last couple shots, but needless to say this was a bold move for co-creators Mike and Bryan. My hope is that fans will embrace their decision, especially since, in my opinion, they developed Asami and Korra's relationship in a convincing and compelling way - not just in Books Three and Four, but the first two as well. Also, on a personal level, I kind of love the idea of Korrasami traveling the Spirit World together, at least until the world needs the Avatar again - which, as we all know, is bound to happen eventually.
Desiree: There’s still a lot of negative stereotypes surrounding queerness that need to be addressed and corrected. One of the reasons for the lack of queer characters in children’s media is the hypersexualization of non-straight sexualities. While Mako and Korra could kiss on-screen or Aang and Katara, Asami and Korra aren’t afforded that same privilege due to the fact they’re two women. Reminds me of how As the World Turns used to censor their gay couple Luke and Noah by cutting out kisses or panning off screen during intimate moments.
