Jinora's_spirit.png
140 KB, 444x250
After watching the last few weeks episodes, seeing Jinora utilizing spirit powers and the way she gets played by even Tenzen (during the tattoo scenes) make me think she is getting too powerful.

Anytime something important needs to happens, Jinora can handle it. She Mine as well replace Korra.
>>
>>63762898
maybe i havent been watching very carefully but is her airbending really all that spectacular? it seems to me no single airbender so far in this show has even once approached what Aang did on a regular basis.
As for her spirit powers, nah that's cool. think of her like scarlet witch. is she op? well technically.
>>
>>63763899
Zaheer's been doing some pretty cool stuff with his airbending
>>
>>63762898
Her only power is to get the plot moving. Unless they have her summon an army of spirits to fight for her, she's not very powerful. Meelo kicks more ass than she does, and he's only 6.

Her spirit powers just seem to be made up on the spot for whatever situation she's facing.

Need to search underground?
>Oh by the way, I can still astrally project my spirit.

Need to find Kai specifically?
Oh, and I can locate him because of our special connection.

Need to send a message to Lassie because the baby bisons fell down a well?
>Oh, I can summon spirit critters who can relay messages to other spirits that only Bumi can understand, even though spirits have been regularly shown to be capable of speaking with regular humans just fine but I chose to summon one who can't for some reason.

>>63762898
Not yet. Wait until she gets her tattoos.

What the fuck are you talking about OP. Last episode she got shoved in a box and couldn't get out. The kid with two twigs could though. Stop over reacting

So are we getting bald Jinora soon?

Gotta shave bare to get the ink. Might grow back after, so there is a chance they will cheat us with a time skip.

There is no way Nick will let a preteen get tattoo's. I imagine they only let it slide with aang because he already had them. If they show Jinora getting them of have gotten them then every soccer mom in the country will cry "muh imitable acts".

No, in fact she has to be saved by Kai so much that when she goes like "IM JUST AS GOOD AS YOU DAD" all I can do is roll my eyes.

They're doing a good job (imo) of balancing her being talented for her age with her still being a kid who still has room to grow. It's better than how they handled the Gaang's "we flawlessly win every fight until the plot demands we lose" thing anyway.

>>63764531
Right but they never showed him with out them. Nick could of thought kids were to stupid to make the connection but with Jinora that's not the case. Kids could she her without them and then with them. Not saying I agree with them but showing a kid getting tattoos with the course of the actual story will get to many people angry and crying about imitable acts.

IIRC they do in a couple of flashbacks. I remember he didn't have them when he first met Appa.

Nick will probably allow it because it's a cultural thing, Jinora's not getting the tattoos for shits and giggles. At the most we'll probably just see her shaved with bandages on her head and then her hair will start to grow back.

>>63764751

He's probably the strongest airbender around, until they decide to give Tenzin or his kids a boost.

Zaheer being so retardedly good at airbending is still the biggest bs so far.
>>
>>63766188
it's strongly implied that he has studied air nomad culture for quite a while before HERPDERPSPIRITS were giving air bending away like candy. It's entirely likely he went out and learned some air bender stances and forms just as a way of becoming a more agile fighter. If that were the case, he would really only need a short amount of practice once he actually gained the abilities.

Also, he really doesn't seem to be that good at bending. Sure, he is powerful, but he hasn't been shown to have that much control over it. He doesn't do any fancy techniques, like the air scooter, air sickles, or anything like that. He kinda just uses it as brute force to slap shit around, or dampen his falls.

The only reason no one has utilized Air Blades yet is because it's possibly the most overpowered ability in the show.
Everything can be solved with Air Blades.

Why can't she be the Avatar?

>>63769093
Because Raava fused with Korra again

Can you even imagine if it'd gone to Jinora instead, that shit would be hilarious

Jinora becomes the main character and Korra is relegated to bitter b-tier

the show improves tenfold

so the season is 13 episode long, right? And we are at the 7th one.

And what is exactly the plot? I feel like nothing has really happened
>>
>>63767958

Zaheer cut the water barrel in half with an air blade.
>>
>>63769609

Nothing happened.

Except well... Airbenders coming back, the Fantastic 4 escaping, and Korra making an enemy of the Earth Queen.
But other than that nothing.

We're going to help reconstruct the Air nation.

Lin's backstory, character development, Korra learned to Metalbend, Zaheer showed off a new skill, Kai and Jinora's budding romance, training of the new airbenders, learned of the death of an important character from the old show...

I guess that's fucking nothing.
>>
>>63769783
Apparently.

>>63769805
Don't listen to him, he's just an idiot

The plot's centered around the aftermath of Korra's decisions in the Harmonic Convergence, specifically the return of the airbending and the resultant escape of a really fucking dangerous and knowledgeable criminals. They're being built up in the background while the efforts to rebuild the Air Nomads take center stage, which has gone from finding them to freeing them to training them. Also Mako/Bolin's, Lin's/her family's and some more of Tenzin and his family's issues all play out in surprisingly interesting and well executed ways.

I'm actually pretty impressed so far. I dropped Season 2 after Wan, but I'm back on board with this season now. Except for the first episode, Korra's been relegated mostly to the background, which I think has actually made a huge difference. She's still one of the weakest parts of her own show, so it's nice to have the rest of the cast fill in so nicely.
>>
>>63770119
Most of that is just shipping and teen angst.
>>
>>63769890
Anon, are we watching the same thing? The last two episodes were some of the best in the show so far. If you think "nothing" happened you either need to rewatch or reevaluate what you think "things happening" means.

I fully disagree, but I agree, Mako and Bolin and Lin getting development has been great. I no longer hate Mako, and while Bolin hasn't been useful or anything, he seems more likeable and developed this time around. I especially liked the little scene between Bumi and Tenzin at the end of Ep. 7.
>>
>>63770305

Wow, what a halfassed shitpost.
At least try to make it seem like you watched it or at least read a summary.
>>
>>63770192
You're a fucking idiot.

I'm sorry, but there's really no other way to put it. That's wrong.

There are two romantic sub-plots, both of which have have some character development and are nicely tied into the plot without being obtrusive. They're even brand new characters with smooth and logical introductions, and story reasons to exist outside of being shipped.

I don't even fucking know where you're getting teen angst from. The only one with angst so far is Lin, and she's not a teen. Jinora wanting her tattoos, maybe, but no-one made a particularly big deal out of it and it was resolved in an episode. Barely qualifies.

Look, I hate the shitty parts of LoK as much as the next guy, but this season is legitimately good so far, if still rough around the edges. Don't let previous disappointment wreck what good there is to pull out of this thing.

Lin is not a teen but she is surely acting like one.

they're still on their way to the fireworks factory just give it time

>>63770305
Toph was one of the few things I didn't like about that episode, actually, although really my only reason is she doesn't at all line up with her previous portrayal. It makes sense, even, I can see the character going that route, it just threw me off. If I hadn't seen the original I probably would have barely noticed her.

>Jinora new Avatar

Who would her team be?
Even though it doesn't make that much sense, I think Jinora, Lin, Varrick (w/ iron man suit), and Eska would be a cool team.

Jinora's the brainiac, Varrick's the idea guy, Lin's the muscle, and Eska is the delicious brown.

Bolin's learning to be more upfront about he wants and to not be 'weird' about it (awkwardly hitting on Opal, trying to bend metal when nobody's around).

>>63769251

I'm still upset that Vatu didn't possess Jinora. It would have worked quite well.

Unalaq wants to fuse with Vatu, only to be rejected because of Jinora has a superior connection that makes her a more suitable vessel

Meelo has always been alright except when fartbending.

Jinora seems a little too bookworm-y and serious for that. Ikki seems to be more Aang-ish.

>>63770877
The thing is, they taught a lot of the history through word of mouth before the fire nation fucked everything up, Jinora had to get all her information from books about air society.

>>63762898
I just saw E3 Episode 7 and while she is skilled, she isn't that powerful nor could she sense an attack. I'm not familiar with female airbenders, but do they shave their heads too? Bald airbending men could sense an oncoming attack with a clean shaven head, but what about women?

>>63770955
Someone should draw an older Meelo standing above a mountain of skulls with grin on his face.

>>63766981
He definitely seems to have a different style than the rest of the air benders. He throws a lot more of his body weight around it seems. Personally I like it.
>>
>>63770617
Opal decided to begin living for herself and doing what makes her happy instead of constantly worrying about her mother, a realization which Lin helped her reach after she herself came to terms with her feelings/anger toward her sister and mother, reconciled with/forgave them for their past wrongs, and entered back into her sister's life.

Although it was mostly retroactive, we saw/heard of how Lin's sister when from shithead Toph 2.0 to the matriarch is today.

Jinora's beginning to mature and chafe at her father's restrictions, and seek more freedom and responsibility (dating Kai, breaking rules, wanting her tattoos).

Like >>63770655 said, Bolin's beginning to learn that he doesn't need to keep a goofy facade up at all times and it's ok/beneficial to let his real self/desires show more

Tenzin realized that he's a crappy teacher and needs to pay more attention to his student's needs

Bumi realized he's a crappy lazy student and that what Tenzin is trying to teach him is worthwhile and has value, not to mention the whole can be/quit being/return to being an airbender, which I hope gets explored more because Bumi's awfully one-dimensional and this is a really interesting direction for him.

Kai is maybe? learning to be less of a little shit, there's not been of much of that yet

Korra is (wrongly) learning to have more faith in her abilities and decisions as an Avatar to bring about change, maybe, not too sure about that

That's all that comes to mind, there's undoubtedly more I'm not seeing/thinking of
>>
eh I don't think she is. she's always been built up as a studious prodigy, it just so happens that she has a greater spiritual potential than even her father. i feel like the show is calling her a master a little too soon, but it's not that big a deal.

kai, on the other hand, is a complete sue. he's had about as much training as the other recruits (all of who were kidnapped by the Earth Queen) yet he seems to be able to beat everyone in combat already with very little build-up behind it. if the show is overpowering anyone it's him.

In Aang's time, the Air Nomad culture seemed pretty uniform. Water benders have foggy swamp tribe, Northern Water Tribe, and Southern Watertribe. Earth Kingdom have their various minor kings, Sandbenders, Kyoshi Island warriors, etc. Even Fire Nation had those Aztec looking firebenders.

But with the air nomads, I got the impression that whether you go to North, South, East, or West temple, the people there would generally be the same.

Tenzin did his best to make the air acolytes a carbon copy of Aang's culture, but it could be interesting to see Tenzin's kids each run in their own different direction for how to be air acolytes, and have their followers reflect their beliefs too.

She probably does, which is why she wants her tattoos. She didn't invent anything but if she's eligible by Tenzin's admission, then she's technically a master.
>>
>>63771107
Aang got the master's tattoo at age 12, Jinora is at the age where it is expected. Kai lived his life as a rouge thief, his fighting style (quick, avoidant, good balance and coordination) suits airbending compared to the others who have no combat experience or are unbalanced.

They've shown him to be the most talented new recruit a few times, but so far his notable exploits in combat have involved taking down a guy who was distracted with a hostage and beating up a poacher who was trying to surrender

Also suckerpunching Mako on a train, if you want to count that

He nearly got killed by a fucking Bison, for crying out loud, and he's a bit of a shithead of a kid besides. Why is everyone so eager to call Sue these days?

I think the tattoos is more of a thing for adults, and Aang got his early because he was an air nomad Avatar and thus naturally good at airbending.

She doesn't have to invent shit, she already hyper spiritual and can essentially transform into the wind via astral projection.

Aang can run so fast he creates tornadoes, blow on the ground to create massive instant dust clouds for escape, fly like a helicopter carrying a person heavier than him using his feet all by only twirling a stick, and ice breath so cold it instantly freezes metal.

Jinora needs her non-master boyfriend to save her and has a bullshit Astral Projection power that Zaheer already taught himself.

Her advise was perfectly sound, it's not her fault he decided to take Bumi's advice to the letter and ignore Jinora's protests.

Being an avatar doesn't make you naturally better with your element. I mean Korra wasn't naturally good with water, in fact she was better with fire at a young age,

That was good but for the most part Tenzin and Bumi seem like immature manchildren. I can't point exactly what it is. I think the Lin/Suyin conflict could've been done a little better but those two, despite their flaws, still act and seem like adults to me. Tenzin and Bumi don't.

It's odd how different she is this season. She was supposed to be the meek, understanding type which fits the whole spiritual thing she has. You'd think she wouldn't lash out over tats and sulk over it.
>>
>>63771531
Airbenders probably invented it but there's nothing stopping someone else from letting go of their earthly attachments. I wouldn't be surprised if Korra learns how to do it at one point.

That was just one guy. He said he wasn't an airbender, but he was a friend to them. He was more or less an air acolyte before air acolytes were a thing.
>>
>>63771659
He used it on Ozai and Amon's dad, I wouldn't be surprised if he did give like a really devout acolyte airbending in the hopes that he could restart the nation that way but became dismayed when he started fucking shit up as an airbender.

Then again, I'm a little tired of every other villain being created through spiritbending.

She wasn't, though. If she said something like screw the rules, I'm gonna hijack a bison and run away with Kai, THAT would be out of character.

She didn't say, "I want my tattoos NOW" she said, "according to our rules and traditions I'm more than qualified for my tattoos". There's a difference between the two.

Actually you're right, Tenzin was an idiot about the whole ting. The thing that surprises me most about Tenzin is how much he lacks empathy. For a guy who's a monk and worked in politics he sure is self centered and clueless about other people's feelings and motivations.

Actually it makes decent sense. Tenzin truly believes in his lifestyle, so much he doesn't understand people want to eat meat and don't care for long, boring stories about guys that don't eat.
>>
>>63771753
not taking advantage of the opportunity of being able to commune with her past avatars is going to screw over Korra somehow in the future, as well as all future airbenders because their lineage will only date back to her and she won't even be able to pass on their knowledge (save spiritbending from aang and wan's story)
>>
>>63771783
>For a guy who's a monk and worked in politics he sure is self centered and clueless about other people's feelings and motivations.

He didn't exactly have any competition for his position in the council, since he was the only adult air bender at the time.

Probably explains why Tarlockk was about to talk circles around Tenzin and always get the other councilmen to support what he wanted instead of what Tenzin wanted.

I'm actually convinced they had Korra break her ties from all her past lives so they could get rid of spirit bending. Aang was the only one who actually knew it.

Since when could spirit bending give people bending? And if Zaheer had airbending at one point we probably would've known by now.. He didn't say he got his airbending back, he said he got it from Harmonic Convergence.

Aang was able to use it to give Korra her bending back. Thing is we don't know if it can give a non-bender (like Asami for example) bending.

>>63771545
>>63771822

It's because they're brothers. If you've ever had to put up with family drama, even a grandpa/ma can act like a big baby when dealing with their family members.

If Bumi was just another random air guy like the rest of the new recruits, they'd have interacted differently.

See, I could understand if Aang thought because he grew up with airbenders that but Tenzin has two siblings and a parent who don't live as Air Nomads and he was a politician in Republic City. You would think he would have enough experience with different people to see that not everyone sees the good in the Air Nomad lifestyle.

Hell, he's ex-girlfriend and Korra(initially at least) are good examples of that. After that how can he be surprised when other people aren't as excited about it as he is?

>>63771853
Even if he wasn't the best councilmen the fact that his decisions affected other people should've had forced him to try and think about things from a different perspective.

She couldn't even mediate the conflict that was happening right in front of her. Also, did that line bother anyone else? It was just so...obvious. I get that its a kids show but does it have to
be spelled out that clearly?

>I got a bit of that too. I think Bryke and co. just have a hard time into adult personal drama/characters, honestly

But like I said beofre, the Lin/Suyin conflict was handled much better and neither looked like manchildren. Lin came off as too bitter and I think Suyin is a haughty slef centered diva but I could see people they're age acting like. I have a harder time imagining adults acting like Tenzin and Bumi, especially given the former is a monk and a person of influence in his city and the latter was an Admiral.

>If there were only 5, Kya probably still wouldn't have given enough of a fuck to remember them all.

That's true but clearly there is more than one. Plus Lahima lived 4000 years ago so the gurus have likely bee around for a long time. I think they're not unlike the avatar in that they're particularly rare individuals but across 4000 years there's got to be a few dozen of them at least.

I distinctly remember the scene being about how Korra had a power and strength all her own that had nothing to do with her being the Avatar.

How/why Korra manifests her spiritual energy as a giant blue version of herself, I have no idea, but it's pretty in-character for Korra.

>>63772671
They're at least there for each other. Remember when Desna got injured towards the end of Book 2 and Eska was right there by his side?

I think one of the main problems I have with Bolin Mako is that we were told Mako was protective of Bolin but never really saw it. However, I did like that he tried to push Bolin towards Opal. Regardless of how that relationship turns out it was a bro move to tell him to try and settle down with a nice girl.

I seriously doubt it. If any of the airbenders is going to turn its going to be that little shit Kai. Opal is too pure. Opal will likely become more assertive but I doubt she'll turn, she doesn't really have any reason to at this point and we've seen that she doesn't like conflict. Kai has been shown to be more violent and we know he's easily tempted by material gain.

>>63773108
If Bolin doesn't screw this up and actually ends up with a qt Airfu it'll almost be worth it to sit through the relationshit.

>>63773110
>Bolin wasn't even interested in starting anything or even aware until Mako told him.
Exactly, Mako showed that he wants his brother to actually have a stable relationship with someone who isn't crazy or shallow.

>Mako is a catalyst for romance shit.
True

>Also despite being so protective of Bolin, Mako brushes off Eska's treatment of Bolin.
See that's what I was talking about. We're told he's protective of Bolin but we rarely, if ever, saw it. Wasn't he more upset when Korra went missing than when Bolin went missing in S2? Serious question here, its been a while.

Either way he basically told Bolin to fuck off in S2 and he did a terrible job of protecting him in S1. Maybe know since he lost both Asami and Korra he'll actually give a shit about his own brother.
>>
>>63771753
are they in the right order?
>>
>>63773480

The first three rows are, including Aang.
>>
>>63773574
yeah but then the 4th row has 2 airbenders with only 2 people between them
>>
>>63773434
Mako flipped his shit like a light switch and immediately dropped everyone and everything else in his life (including his karmic past lives) once he heard that Korra went missing.

He took Bolin's disappearance in Book 1 like it was Sunday in the park and Bolin's relationshit in Book 2 with similar stride.

Mako, Bolin, and Asami are just there because Aang had a group of people close to his age around him.

That's how I remembered it. Fuck S1 Mako.

True. I know the relationshit has been more miss than hit so far but I'm cautiously optimistic that Opal injects new life into team Avatar.

Mako is a pretty shitty brother come to think of it

At this point the best way to redeem Mako is to make him a better older brother to Bolin.

>>63774051
Nah it's not too far off from how my siblings would have acted if I had gotten in similar situations.
>>
>>63773864
In Mako's defense the situations were pretty different.
Bollin's kidnapping wasn't even assumed a kidnapping until it became obvious. Whereas Korra was in the middle of this huge thing.
The first is "my fuck up brother is gone for the night after saying he's off to run some dumb scheme. He's probably in no real danger just being stupid somewhere" whereas the second is "VIP (who I also want to fuck) goes missing after antagonizing brutally effective enemy with an MO for kidnapping people they don't like".
Not that Mako isn't a bad brother for not being more attentive or worried but one situation had much more obvious stakes.

I think there was a way to make it work if Book 2 had been longer so as to devote more time to her character. And it would've made sense with Jinora's spiritual connection.

My prediction has been that Zaheer will kidnap Opal and that's why the Krew goes to Si Wong. At least that's the way it kinda felt from the trailers. Depends on who Ghazan was carrying on his back, some say it looks like Korra, others say it looks like Opal.

But I have read some in the threads speculate it could be Opal. Both she and Korra practically have the same build.

The thing is they only have 6 episodes left. Are they really going to have another Korra gets captured plotline that'll waste two episodes? At first I thought Zaheer and the Red Lotus would kidnap Korra and take her to Si Wong, but the trailer has Korra looking out at the desert town during the sunset before it shows Asami carrying her away. So obviously Korra isn't a prisoner when the Si Wong episodes start, which will probably be after the next episode. So either they catch Korra in her pajamas just to fail and run away while Korra and friends go to the desert for whatever fucking reason, or Korra has to follow them to the desert.

She doesn't get captured.

>or Korra has to follow them to the desert.
Pretty obvious that's what happens, but she probably does it because they found her and she wants to put an end to things.

They COULD kidnap Opal as a hostage situation (none of this corruption bullshit) when they fail to grab Korra but it's obvious in that one cap it's her, not Opal.
>>
>>63778908
>They COULD kidnap Opal as a hostage situation

That's what I've been figuring might happen, could be a good setup for some exposition on the Red Lotus' motivations.

No they're not. they're korra.

Rava has NOTHING to do with the reincarnation. she says herself that she would "stay with you through your reincarnations"

Reincarnation is a thing in avatarverse, everyone does it. just most people can't remember their past lives. the avatar can because Rava acts like a library for them all.


The other avatars were never "spirits" inside korra, they literally ARE korra. the avatar is 1 person.


They themselves speak of it as such. When Roku took over aang's body to make him teach firebending, he said "I have mastered the elements a thousand times, and I shall do so again"

He makes no distinction between himself and aang.

Isn't it that you only receive your tattoos when you invent a new technique? Aang got his from inventing the air scooter.

>>63771853
Still, Tenzin was far smarter in the first season, where he was actually an intelligent mentor that despite some flaws, you could see being a son of Aang.

On that note does anyone else wish Tenzin would've talked at least a little bit about who Guru Lahima and possible reasons why Zaheer admires him so much? Maybe Kya could've mentioned his comment about Lahima being the wisest airbender who ever lived and then Tenzin elaborates on who Lahima was.

Plus the air acolytes, but they were probably a lot easier because they actually wanted to do all the airbender stuff. Prospective air acolytes were probably excited to go vegetarian and shave their heads and shit.

Plus, the airbenders are new and stuff, not diamond dozen non-bender windaboos like Tenzin usually gets. So it was probably a combination of Tenzin getting too excited about getting new airbender air nomads and pushing them too hard, with having students who weren't as motivated as the students he is used to having (for most of them their main alternate choice was going back to the Earth Kingdom to get conscripted again.)

Why do you think they are so good at bending? He's a tough teacher and his kids adapted to it because it's what they had to grow up with.

Tenzin just needs to learn how to transition these new air benders into a monk life style, which pema made clear wasn't easy at first. Of course he's going to have issues when his new students don't really understand what it means to be a monk.

something to consider is that he was put in a super jail for being one of the most dangerous people on the planet. Before he could air bend. He had a high interest in air nomad philosophy and style beforehand. It is more than likely he could fight high level benders before just via martial arts badassery. He doesn't need to do a lot of advanced air bending, he just needs to use it to supliment his already (presumably) dangerous martial ability.

They're dropping hints at least. Amon was a hue secret up until the massive info dump that is episode 11.

That, and who knows how long he's been practicing while still being stuck in his jail biding his time.

This last episode was absolute shit. I was really liking the season up until then, too. Also they need to start actually developing the major conflict because they're running out of time.

The Original Airbenders is probably the worst episode of the season so far. Does anyone really give a fuck about Tenzin at this point? I know I don't

>Plus the air acolytes, but they were probably a lot easier because they actually wanted to do all the airbender stuff. Prospective air acolytes were probably excited to go vegetarian and shave their heads and shit.
Also they couldn't actually bend so Tenzin had no way to tell whether the things he was teaching them would actually work

If Zaheer was one of Aang's pupils on the island, he may have also just wanted to visit the old stomping grounds, but I think he was also waiting for Korra and Tenzin to show up. When he realized that wasn't gonna happen, he just took that necklace and bounced.

Agree that Tenzin should have dropped some exposition when Kya mentioned the necklace

It's not like she didn't have character growth before.
The show just tends to forget about it after a couple of episodes.
Granted season 3 had the longest stretch of Korra not being a nuisance.
Hopefully it will finally stick.
Hopefully.

Although she still loves taking credit for things that were beyond her control and just happened to work out okay. But whatever.
>>
>>63796729
She's a nuisance by butting into Lin's personal life and acting like she knows everything about it, and then fo course taking credit for their reconciliation when talking to Tenzin

>>63796784
The funny thing is that she's actually part of the reason the situation escalated in the first place.

But hey, she's done far worse. Far, far worse.

To the point where I've grown used to the fact that she's basically the brown, unfunny Sterling Archer of Avatars.

I think he went to Republic City to assassinate the President and was just hoping Korra and Tenzin would arrive so he could kill two birds with one stone

I think he was there for the glider and the necklace was a bonus.

the guy blew his cover for a necklace with some mystical poetry written on it. Wouldn't be surprised if after 13 years he wanted to visit the place where his master taught him everything he knows...assuming the Air Acolyte theory is true.

>the guy blew his cover for a necklace with some mystical poetry written on it.
Personally I think he was there to get a glider and only stole the necklace because he happened to notice it and get distracted, which is why Ikki could sneak up on him. He seems to have an obsession with Lahima but I don't think he's the type to come back to visit for fun.

Still, at this point either of us could be right. Event though I wish they would give us more hints I do like that they aren't spoon feeding us these villains motivations and thoughts at every turn like they are with the rest of the cast. I can't be the only one who feels most of the characters keep stating the obvious. That Korra line about conflict resolution was cringe worthy IMO.
>>
>>63796729
She's less of a nuisance because she's a side character now. She was a huge nuisance in the Lin/Mike's daddy issue venting story.
>>
>>63797629
>He seems to have an obsession with Lahima but I don't think he's the type to come back to visit for fun.

Well, I'm not saying he just came to visit for fun, but it'd make sense for a lot of reasons unrelated to his trying to catch Korra for him to want to return to Air Temple Island if he's an old acolyte. He admires Air Nomad culture and the wisdom of the past masters and if Aang was his actual master, he'd probably want to look around the temple Aang built where he may have been trained himself. His main reason for being there I think was that he was waiting for Korra and Tenzin to show up though.

These pouchers are just thugs. It's quicker to just cash them into right away to someone who wants to eat them on the black market instead of investing time and money to train them, which they might not even know how to do.
>>
Honestly Jinora is WAY too overpowered. Anytime someone is missing/kidnapped/in trouble and they are close to Jinora(so every main character) she can just meditate and find them, and if it's HER that's in trouble she can do that or send spirit animals to get help.

So at this point any time a character is seemingly fucked you know Jinora will get them out with medication
>>

Heck, you're lucky he didn't throw in a line about people in the Earth Kingdom wanting to eat their powdered bison wang for traditional medicine.

Mike didn't write Original Airbenders though, it was Tim

Plus, people act like ATLA wasn't already pro-vegan propaganda.
>>
>>63797805
I was implying that no one would do that, especially not the queen, you idiot. She kidnaps children to train as soldiers, those bison can be highly useful in war. It makes no sense for her character. It was literally just written that way to make meat eaters look like monsters

That's why the dialogue wasn't horrifying like it was in the oen Mike wrote(episode 5)

Mike still contributes to the overall plot, so he probably decided the queen wanted bison just to eat them instead of using them for something she'd actually care more about
>>
>>63797734
At this point we don't know and it could be any number of things. Honestly I like it like that, though I do want to eventually know more about Zaheer, his motivations, and his personality and thought process. With the way some of the dialogue has been written this season I'm worried it'll come out off though.

Except it actually does happen in real life. Lots of species have been endangered by people killing them just to sell ivory, fur or meat to rich faggots or the superstitious middle class who believes they'll get sexual powers.

Mike didn't force his daddy issues the way he does now back during TLA. What's your point? That he was better back then because they had a huge team of people contributing and hadn't lost their minds? I agree.

Don't forget Korra's little cook out at the park.

Mike & Bryan certainly favor vegetarianism, but they've never had any problem with characters from other nations besides their nation of Mary Sue Nomads being meat eaters, which is why the point was stressed about Earth Kingdom nobles just wanting rare meat to look fancy rather than eating meat. Heck, the Water Tribes have a shit ton of pelts from animals they've hunted and killed.
>>
>>63797979
I meant that Sokka was a good guy who was unapologetic about eating meat so its not like meat eating is shown as bad across the board, though to be fair its been a really long time since I've seen ATLA so I could be remembering this wrong.

Also there was plenty of daddy issues in ATLA. Toph's dad was overprotective, Zuko's dad was abusive, and didn't Sokka and/or Katara give their dad shit for abandoning them to fight against the Fire Nation
>>
>>63797978
>Lots of species have been endangered by people killing them just to sell ivory, fur or meat to rich faggots or the superstitious middle class who believes they'll get sexual powers.
but they aren't fucking SKY BISON

>>
>>63797873

It's more meant to villianize the Earth Queen. In real life poachers don't kidnap elephants or rhinos to train them or anything, they just kill them and take what's profitable because they give zero fucks. In real life, these poachers tend to be desperately poor, but this never seems to be brought up in any media with poachers, not just Avatar.

It'd be interesting to see what would happen if some Earth Kingdom or Fire Nation people actually did find a herd of air bison, managed to tame them, and then started using them as beasts of burden or ranching them for meat (or maybe milk?) since I'm sure Tenzin and Jinora would get butthurt about it, but I think would have to wind up accepting it.
>>
>>63798120

That's just bad writing, it's not a case of the liberal kike media trying to brainwash people.
>>
>>63798157
Keep your head in the sand goy
>>
>>63798127

I guess it is possible that the poachers just kill the bison and sell the meat and the Earth Queen's just like "hey, good eats."

For all we know, she actually does have plans to catch live air bison, but was waiting until she finished training her Airbender regiment.
>>
>>63798120
Rich people will eat something just because it's exotic or endangered. Seems more like it was a jab at the higher classes than it was people who eat meat.
>>
>>63798120

I'm not sure that'd be too practical. Let's say she gets an air bison.

Absolutely no one in the earth kingdom knows how to train one. Or how to fly one.

It's like if you stole an airplane, but had no one to teach you to ride it or a book on how to fly it. Plus, you're a villain and maltreating the plane, so it hates the fuck out of you.

Do you really want to try to fly it using trial and error?

All the kids in The Last Airbender were pretty over powered.

So it's only natural that Jinora be overpowered, especially since she's the granddaughter of the Avatar.

Azula and Zuko also had genes from an Avatar and they were very powerful too.
>>
>>63798262
>so it hates the fuck out of you.
They kidnapped the babies that were able to be tamed. It's like training animals in a zoo, you train elephants when they're babbies, chain them up, and when they're strong enough to break the chains and gain freedom they don't because it's been ingrained into them that they can't. the poachers were kidnapping baby bison because it's not like they could fuck with the adult ones, or they'd just kill those because it's way more meat and fur anyway. So it only shows how powerful the bison could be to someone who wants weapons like the queen. get them when they're babies and have loyal adults
>>
Why were they kidnapping the bison alive anyway? Why not just kill them? Wouldn't that make transporting them easier?

I guess maybe the meat would go bad?
>>
>>63798236

Yeah, when Jinora was chewing out the pouchers, she was made because the bison were endangered. If they were just some deer or some common animal, they'd just be hunters, not pouchers and there wouldn't be anything wrong with what they were doing.

>>63798195

Maybe. The pouchers probably don't butcher them, they just sell it to whoever is buying, who happens to be cooks who want to please an evil queen.

>>63798355

True enough. But the Queen isn't a great thinker or a military mastermind, she's just a bully. If anyone in the Earth Kingdom does think of using the bison as war weapons, it'll be one of her generals, not that overgrown brat on the throne.

I liked the Lin/Suyin story line. It was a perfect reversal of Toph's issues with her parents and even though I wish Lin didn't get screwed over the way she did I still thought it was entertaining and I was satisfied with it.

Definitely agree with that but I still didn't like the story, at least teh way Lin was portrayed as the bad guy.

I thought they were in the Northern Air Temple? I'm sure its close to the Earth Kingdom given how big it is but you would think they could find one water bender to make things a little easier. If they don't kill them they would have to keep them alive until they arrived in Ba Sing Se.

It's just things like the scene where Lin confronts Su, Sterling's voice made her sound like she was almost scoffing at Lin's feelings. The Spanish VA didn't give me that impression.

In fact, I liked a lot of the voices better or just as much in Spanish, except for Korra's.

Kai's too balanced. He may be a little thieving dick, but it's because of that that he is likely not to be seduced by strangers to the darkside. Plus, he's got Jinora who offers extra protections against evil influences.

Opal's naive, knows nothing of the world outside her home, wants to become a better airbender and wants adventure. And she's too adorable and pure for the show to not ruin her life.

>>63798806
>It's just things like the scene where Lin confronts Su, Sterling's voice made her sound like she was almost scoffing at Lin's feelings.
I think that's in character for Suyin. Lin's problem is that she has a hard time letting things go and moving on but Suyin's is that she does so too easily so from her perspective Lin is being unreasonable.

Wasn't the overarching plot of LoK the journey of Korra from impulsive idiot to spiritual being? Because I feel like she's already matured and developed enough as a character to the point where there's really no point to the show any more, they're literally just throwing random villains at us to create a new plot.

And they haven't even addressed this new plot very much, the exbendables have just been a side thing in every episode and have had little to no effect on anything else that goes on in the show.
>>
>>63799288
>Eating bear doesn't make you evil, hunters do it every day and humanity has done it for its entire existence.
It wasn't just any bear, it was a highly endangered bear that was also her father's pet.

I think its wrong but I liked it when Bumi interjected with the fact that the Earth Queen has a right to conscript her citizens. Instead of allowing that to affect their actions they all just said fuck it and broke them out anyway though. If the airbenders have a right to choose their life what about the other non-airbending Earth Kingdom citizens who get conscripted?

No the show just keeps telling us she has. Pretty much everything she has done but save that guy and rescue the prisoners has been a huge fuck up where she has got stuff wrong from fighting the police to trying to take Kai to completely not understanding the Su lin situation and giving up on it. But according to the show she is a problem solver now so likely won't actually develop

This is the main issue with Korra. Each season has a seperate storyline and it means that each season feels disconnected and sort of pointless. LAB was a three volume epic, with plenty of time for great pacing and well plotted storylines.

Korra is going to be starting BOOK FOUR soon. Aang only got three books but he felt like so much bigger a story
>>
>>63799441
they should have adressed the political consequences.
"i thought you said there were no airbenders here? well, we're not taking them away on this blimp."

or tenzin declares all new airbenders also possess air nation citizenship. or just korra going 'well, earth queen has the right to do that, but i'm the avatar and rescuing them is the right thing to do so i'll just have to face the consequences'

It's not the fact that the villains aren't all morally wrong, lots of shows have villains who are actually sort of in the right if you stop and think about it, it's the fact that the writers seem to think that if they have characters point if out then they don't need to address it furhter

Tenzin is a fuck up. He never does anything right

I sort of liked how they're showing Tenzin try to rebuild the Air Nation, but I also sort of wish they'd go more into Airbenders who don't want to be part of Tenzin's nation but still want to develop their talents. I just don't see Opal going full nomad.

And those blacks then proceeded to create a race based aristocracy where they lorded it over the natives for centuries, so get off your high horse

Those are all better than what actually happened.

That makes it worse IMO

Each season being it's own separate storyline isn't necessarily a problem. The Toy Story movies, for example, each had their own plots that were both great standalone and as part of a bigger narrative.

But even within each season Korra doesn't really have a core plot. The direction keeps changing and the characters mostly dick around until the villain does something.

Yeah that's pretty much how I feel too. With Korra being portrayed (however unrealistically) as a mature developed adult there's little room for them to develop her further, which is a bit of a turn-off for me since I enjoyed the aspect of character development the previous seasons focused on. Even though Korra was a massive annoying cunt.

Well to be fair, Aang's books were much longer.

Instead of forcing a romance have him act like the protective older brother he was supposed to be in the first place. I thought his pushing of Bolin towards Opal was a nice start.

Just because they did bad things two doesn't mean that Lincoln did not take morally questionable positions. Sure, he was against slavery, but he wanted to kick everybody out.
