I CANNOT HANDLE THIS! How can a show stir up so much emotion in my body! WHAT IS THIS EVEN!!!!
This season was soooooooo good! I’m so happy that this is turning out to be this good cas I was really skeptical about it in Book 1. But man, the writers DID NOT disappoint.
(Spoiler Alerts, Read No Further If You Haven’t Seen The Finale)
JINORA GETTING HER AIRBENDER MASTER TATTOO’S!!!! I LITERALLY TEARED UP AT THAT SCENE. Like, Tenzin’s speech was ridiculously well written and the fact that Korra was in the state that she was in while all this was happening was even more tear jerking.
And can we talk about these action scenes though?!? Like, you know shits getting real in TLOK cas people are actually being KILLED which literally was never shown in TLA. And can we talk about how ruthless these deaths were?! I stopped breathing when P’Li was killed. They didn’t show an explosion or anything but was that NOT the most shocking death to come to Avatar in the history of Avatar? And the fight scene between Korra and Zaheer?! I mean, I wouldn’t say it was on the same level as Firelord Ozai and Aang but maaannn, that scene was ridiculous.
Also, it’s crazy how such a simple concept of bending elements can go so far and have so many new abilities brought forth. In TLA we knew lava bending was a thing, but never really seen it done by any earth benders besides the Avatar. Honestly, when Ghazan first appeared it didn’t occur to me that he was lava bending when they broke him out. Like, I saw the rocks thrown in his cage but was thrown off with what he did with them. And when Mako killed Ming Hua with Lightning Bending I completely forgot about that technique since it hadn’t been used for awhile, the entire 3rd Season I know it hadn’t been used for sure. So definitely a shock when that came back up, I wonder if the writers did that on purpose?
Although, I do have one gripe. Why is it that they never took Korra to be healed, or even mentioned it for that matter? It’s been two weeks. I see no reason why a water bender with healing capabilities can’t have a couple sessions with Korra to AT THE VERY LEAST get her back up on her feet again, literally. She was only poisoned.
It’s hard to tell where Book 4 is going to go towards seeing the state that Korra is now. Her character development since Book 1 is insane. She went from this stubborn annoying bratty teenager that no viewer can TRULY say they liked to this amazing Avatar. But at the end of Book 3 she’s a completely different person. Broken, disabled, and I wonder how things are going to move forward from this. In conclusion, I am sooooo happy that TLOK is turning out to be so good. I was seriously afraid that it wasn’t going to turn out as good as TLA but slowly but surely the writers are proving that this is going to be just as good as the first. This finale was crazy. I cannot even.
Time to start from the beginning again and watch all the episodes over.
