It's certainly intended to seem that way, but by mid season of every single season, the "morally ambiguous" enemy turns out to be just as mustache twirlingly evil as Ozai.

Amon was the closest to morally ambiguous and his entire political ideal turned out to be invalid since it went away as an issue without any need for societal change the moment he became an uncomplicated fraud.

Korra is just as simple as the main plot of Avatar, but it's less upfront about that and it doesn't have anything else going on like TLA had Zuko's and Aang's spiritual journeys.

Oh thanks Korra, ya dumb bitch. I just decided this year to 'grow up' instead of during childhood where I was a fucking orphan and had to take care of my brother. It wasn't when I worked for the Triads or as the only competent detective in the whole damn city. Nope, it wasn't during the uprising or when the spirit world sharted all over the city, or fighting the Red Lotus. It was when I tipped over a robot that I grew up. Fuck you.

>>
>>70626033
Their relationships are so all over the place. S1 they seem pretty close but then all the relationship stuff happens. S2 they are basically all over the place, not a team at all. S3 they are all suddenly great friends but only seem to hang out when the plot needs them to be move forward by them, Asami kinda just disappears for episodes as she is so irrelevant. S4 makes them all feel isolated again but we are told they are such great friends and then they kinda stand around each other in some scenes

Also through all of it I don't think Asami and Bollin have more than 2 lines of dialogue together
>>
>>70626033
Yeah, Team Avatar didn't have much cohesion this time around. I mean Sokka and Katara were bro and sis and Sokka and Toph were pragmatists that were chill with each other. Hell even Zuko got some time to hang with each member.

This team Avatar, Asami always felt like the third wheel. Never really important enough and never hung out with Bolin or anything that much. Is Varrick considered a part of team Avatar?

They literally had to invent reasons for characters to show up in the episodes. Doesn't Asami have a company to run? A company that's been run into the ground three times already? I think she has more shit to do than to hang around filling out the headcount.
>>
>>70626495
She doesn't even really fight, or plan stuff. Her role could easily be filled by staying at home and doing more work
>>
>>70626621
She doesn't have a role, Varrick played the "wealthy industrialist" role way better than Asami ever did, her being the "driver" became pointless once they started using sky bison for travelling again, and she was also useless as the "token non-bender" since she was incapable of fighting anything other than random non-bender mooks.

There was no avoiding Harmonic Convergence. That was going to happen, and because of that Unalaq was going to get those fucking portals open one way or the other. Vaatu was helping him bring dark Spirits, which s2e1 straight up established were unstoppable by any means but spirit bending, into the equation, and the only way to stop that is with the Avatar.

Can we talk about this seriously for a second? How the fuck can you blame her for being fooled and then forced into opening the portals? She had no reason, whatsoever to distrust Unalaq, whereas her father and mentor straight up admitted to sheltering her and lying to her. And then later, it was Jinorra's life on the line....well soul I guess.
>Or properly mastered the elements, either would have worked
What exactly is that supposed to mean? She trains constantly, so you can't say she wasn't working for 6 straight months. And even if she did master the elements that doesn't mean jack shit against Spirits. Fucking shit, I probably sound like a huge korrafag right now but you can't just ignore everything and then pretend that Korra is utterly retarded and directly responsible for everything.
>>
>>70627564
But at the end of the season she decided to leave the portals open instead of closing them, thats her fault and you can blame her for it, just like the people of Republic city did
>>
>>70627564
>There was no avoiding Harmonic Convergence
don't open the portal?

>That was going to happen, and because of that Unalaq was going to get those fucking portals open one way or the other.
He had no other way. You can't say he probably could if you have no actual idea

>How the fuck can you blame her for being fooled and then forced into opening the portals?
Because she should have thought through the implications and also seen he was a massive dickwad. it was quite revenge of the sith Palpetine levels but it was pretty obvious to anyone with a brain

Also this >>70627634 . Even if you still defend her she could have closed them and stopped all of that or at least softened the effect
>>
>>70627634
But we don't actually know if that had any impact on the overall plot. They only say that Harmonic Convergance did something which brought back airbenders. It could have happened even with the portals closed in which case Korra had nothing to do with Zaheer getting bending and killing the queen.
>>
>>70620693
Korra grew up in a time when Aang would have been the ideal Avatar, just as Aang was active when Korra would have been the ideal Avatar.

>>70627705

Except that was shown to be an overwhelmingly good idea. Everyone was expecting Koh or some shit to waltz out and start stealing faces but no, having the portals open did nothing but benefit.

Obvious to the audience. In universe you don't hear the musical stings or notice all the evil imagery.
>>
>>70627794
As i said we dont know if he would have gotten it back even if she chose to close the portals after beating Unavatuu.
>>
>>70627842
That's what we call lazy writing. If you have to make your characters stupid so you can spoon feed the audience then the script needs a reright

Also it is not the same as musicals
>>
>>70627850
We do know that is has a chance to and if she hadn't been a stupid bitch in the first place the portal would never be open and it would never be a problem at all

What you are saying is "I don't know if this fire is gonna burn my house down but leaving it is fine." Even if it is too late being proactive is the right choice
>>
>>70627836
The homes were already destroyed by Unalaq. Leaving the portals open didn't make the situation worse than Korra had already been manipulated into making it become.
>>
>>70627977
>The homes were already destroyed by Unalaq.

>All the homes over the world destroyed by those spirit vines in republic city were already destroyed
Are you actually mentally handicapped?
>>
>>70627469
But you can't blame her for multiple mistakes. She made just one. Plus if you aren't even considering the good part. Are you going to give her credit for reforming the Air Nomads or turning the Earth Kingdom into a federation of independent states?
>>
>>70627901
And that's part of what I'm getting at. The fault is in the writing, not Korra. And even then there are explanations available.
>>
>>70627972
Im not saying leaving the portals open were a good idea. Im saying that they may have had no impact on the Airbenders returning.

If it has no impact all you can really say is her fault is being tricked into opening the first portal, which since she was tricked you can't really blame her for. Or its her fault for wanting to save someone life, while believing it is possible to defeat the bad guy and save the world anyway.
>>
>>70628026
Uh the vines already grew during the attack they'd have possibly died or retracted if the portals closed but the remaining structures would have collapsed or at lead been condemned for having HUGE STONKIN VINE HOLES in erm.
>>
>>70628104
That's like saying no character is ever at fault in a story. She is a character in the story and does shit with the shitty writing, you can't separate that especially when being a useless tard is hardly out of character for her

She's not a useless tard though. She's a highly proactive Avatar.
>>
>>70627564
>no avoiding
Stay at home. She is the only person on the planet who could have opened either portal, she could wait out Convergence then handle Unalaq however she wanted.

>Vaatu was helping him
Vaatu was completely sealed away, he wasn't influencing anything and those dark spirits would have receded after Harmonic Convergence.

>unstoppable save by spirit bending
Which she has, and no, it isn't exclusive to the Avatar, given Unalaq taught it to her.

>how can you blame her for being fooled
For never questioning anything and turning her back to her friends and benefactors for someone she hardly knew.

>had no reason to distrust Unalaq
Except for the majority of the season when she started a civil war against him.

>her friends and mentors protected her
How shameful.

>Jinora's life
Isn't worth sacrificing humanity for.

>what does mastering the elements mean
Mastering them. What else?

>she trains constantly
She learns metal bending, some spirit manipulation, and gets beat up by Toph for a couple days. That is the extent of her training in the series. She never learns the advanced techniques nor invents her own. She doesn't attempt to learn anything in the three years she has off.

>doesn't mean jack to spirits
But it does against people. Bloodbending would trivialized everyone she met with a raised eyebrow. Lava bending and combustion are portrayed as unstoppable to those who lack them. She couldn't do half the shit Unalaq could with spirits. Flight would have made her useless legs irrelevant. She didn't even bother with the incredibly common lightning.

>utterly retarded
No, just incredibly stupid and unbelievably incompetent.

>directly responsible
Nothing from Book 1 would have happened if she stayed home. Vaatu is never released, Zaheer is never freed, Kuvira never comes to power, Republic City isn't leveled, there's no Dark Avatar sulking around and the spirits aren't terrorizing humanity. All because she got involved and didn't know her shit.
>>
>>70628219
They say in the show that Harmonic somehow brought back the Airbenders, Harmonic convergance happened before she decided to keep the portals open. This is not headcanon.
>>
>>70628261
Zaheer called it a gift from the spirits, who would have never gotten out if the portals weren't opened.
>>
>>70628261
It literally happens because of the portals, it needs the portals opening to amplify the energy, this is all very easily found information
>>
>>70628216
>Acting like a threesome with occasional swinging with the rest of the cast wasn't the ending for Digimon Adventure/02
>>
>>70628357
>>70628368
True but opening the first portal wasn't a concious choice since she didn't have the needed information to choose not to do it. Actually she was told it would only be beneficial. This all happens before she has any reason to distrust Unalaq.
The second portal being opened isn't her free choice either since they force her hand by having a hostage.
If you're tricked or forced into doing something it is not your fault when things happen. The fault lies with the one who tricked/forced you, in this case Unalaq.
And her choice to keep the portals open after Harmonic Convergance may not have had an impact on Zaheer getting airbending.
>>
>>70628238
>Vaatu was completely sealed away, he wasn't influencing anything and those dark spirits would have receded after Harmonic Convergence
To be fair, they could've torn up alot of shit before that point. If it ever came. Is that really preferable to just stopping Vaatu? One city or the entire planet?

No because she had no fucking hand in either of those things intentionally. She didn't think, and there were consequences. She's to blame. She didn't think and there were benefits: she got fucking lucky. You don't reward someone for accidents, but you punish them for easily avoidable mistakes like Korra's.
>>
>>70628502
>True but opening the first portal wasn't a concious choice since she didn't have the needed information to choose not to do it.
That doesn't stop it being all her fault. If you don't realise a vase is behind you and knock it over you are still responsible for doing so

>This all happens before she has any reason to distrust Unalaq.
Apart from that little civil war thing, going against her friends and that he is very obviously evil.

>The second portal being opened isn't her free choice either since they force her hand by having a hostage.
It's okay she meant 4 maniacs were set free and a queen was murdered causing huge unrest cause there was a hostage. No

>And her choice to keep the portals open after Harmonic Convergance may not have had an impact on Zaheer getting airbending.
For the last time it did, you don't understand this thing and even if it didn't other negative effects came from it like the vines destroying a city
>>
>>70627564
>which s2e1 straight up established were unstoppable by any means but spirit bending
Totally, which is why the humans were able to eradicate the spirits and protect themselves with bending.

Legend of Korra, Season 2 especially, is horribly written.
>>
>>70628688
>Totally, which is why the humans were able to eradicate the spirits and protect themselves with bending
No they weren't. All of Wan's friends dying because they chose to fight spirits was a pretty big plot point. And before you even say it, they burnt the forest down, that doesn't mean they killed Spirits.
>>
>>70628502
>didn't know when she opened the first portal
She did afterwards, and nothing was stopping her from closing it.

>isn't her choice
It was. Jinora's life isn't worth sacrificing the entire, and if she knew the elements properly she could have easily struck down Unalaq while he was holding her captive.

>if your tricked or forced
>isn't your fault
It is when it is extremely obvious, your the reason it came to that point in the first point, and had a variety of methods to work around it.

>her choosing to keep the portals open
Is what gave Zaheer airbending.

>>70628600
>torn up a lot of shit
They're only ever shown at sea and near the poles. There is nothing suggesting they would have depopulated the planet in a matter of minutes.

>really preferable
Vaatu is far more dangerous than all the random dark spirits put together, and as an Avatar is a permanent problem unless killed in the State (which he wasn't).

Hell, if Korra had any brains she'd have just sealed the portal at the South Pole with Unalaq in the Spirit World and wait out Convergence there.
>>
>>70628648
I thought he holy started the civil war AFTER they got back from the portal?
>>
>>70628648
>That doesn't stop it being all her fault. If you don't realise a vase is behind you and knock it over you are still responsible for doing so.
If someone tricks you into doing something and you have no way of knowing its bad, they're at fault not you.

>That doesn't stop it being all her fault. If you don't realise a vase is behind you and knock it over you are still responsible for doing so
Which happens after the first portals is opened. So she has no reason to distrust Unalaq before portal 1.

>It's okay she meant 4 maniacs were set free and a queen was murdered causing huge unrest cause there was a hostage. No
She had no way of knowing this would happen. She chose to save a life, assuming she could fix the mistake (which she had time to do considering she did defeat Unavatu).

>For the last time it did, you don't understand this thing and even if it didn't other negative effects came from it like the vines destroying a city.
The show disagrees with you. The show doesn't know if the portals staying open meant anything. All they say is that harmonic convergance somehow gave some people airbending. The vines i would agree were bad, and i think there were other reason to close the portals, but these have no impact on Korra "causing" season 3 and 4.
>>
>>70628739
>that doesn't mean they killed Spirits.
>Aye-Aye never seen again
>not killed
Which by the by, they never fucking named his supposed best spirit pal in-canon. Even though Aye-Aye named Wan.

How about when Wan used firebending to separate Vaatu and Raava? Yeah, spirits are immune to bending except when it's the literal only defense against spirits before bending as an art is developed.

Look, from the first minute, Season 2 was a pile of retconning, asspulled bullshit. It's been 6 months since Amon, and now it's the winter solstice. So, Amon was beaten, in NYC, in the Earth Kingdom, on the goddamn equator, in fucking June, where it was snowing. Yeah, okay.
>>
>>70628888
>you have no way of knowing
She did.

>no way of knowing about Zaheer
But she did know what happened the last time the spirits were freed (that is, driving humanity to the edge of extinction).

>choose to save a life
And put everyone else's at terrible risk.

>assuming she could fix the mistake

>Korra would win a fight
Anon, pls. Stahp.

Says the spirits gave the airbenders their bending as a result of Harmonic Convergence.
>>
>>70629027
>>you have no way of knowing

Please tell me what evidence she had against Unalaq other than her dad's grudge that he never really explained all the way?


>choose to save a life
>And put everyone else's at terrible risk.
>assuming she could fix the mistake
That's what heroes DO. When there's a hostage who will certainly die if nothing is done you give in temporarily even if doing so raises the stakes and rushes the timetable.
>>
>>70628924
>firebending can harm 'All Powerful Spurrits'
>Wan seals away Vaatu as the first Avatar
>Korra with hundreds of past lives couldn't touch a random dark spirit

Isn't it great?
>>
>>70628819
>They're only ever shown at sea and near the poles. There is nothing suggesting they would have depopulated the planet in a matter of minutes
Spirits can move quickly, and there didn't seem to be any time limit. They could easily travel all over the world and exterminate humanity.
>Let Jinora die
The thing is, even if Vaatu was freed, she could beat him, not that there's no danger but there's a backup. That's why it's somewhat more beneficial to save Jinora, Jinora dying would destroy the Gaang's morale.
>Hell, if Korra had any brains she'd have just sealed the portal at the South Pole with Unalaq in the Spirit World and wait out Convergence there.
You just think you're so damn smart. How the hell would Korra know exactly when Unalaq would be away? Not to mention that it was pretty well established that the Southern Portal was heavily fortified. No one was getting anywhere near it.
>>
>>70629027
How would she know?

I agree she should have closed the portals, but she didnt have anything to do with Zaheer getting bending. So she didnt cause the EQ's death and Kuviras rise to power.

She chose to save a life because that is supposed to be the morally right thing to do. They seem to belive in objective universal morals so she had to do it or be a bad guy. Also utilitarianism sucks.

If the spirits gave people airbending it is even less Korras fault. Spirits seemingly don't need the portals and Korra doesn't control what spirits do.
>>
>>70625881
>Robots in general just didn't really fit in this show
Yeah, it's not like the show has been steampunk from the very beginning or anything. I mean making a giant drill and moving it a across the largest desert in the world just to get to Ba Sing Se in secret is totally reasonable, and creating a dozen war zeppelins in three months from capturing a broken blimp is not ridiculous at all. And it's not like the first season of the first series ended with a giant humanoid monster destroying the fire nation fleet.

No, mechanical robots are just too advanced for a steampunk world that has had 70 years of development and they're just too ridiculous for a world with steam powered jet skis.
>>
>>70629137
>what evidence she had against Unalaq
The consul of her friends and mentors, who know him better than she?

>that's what hero's do
Hero's minimize damage. Sacrificing themselves is one thing, sacrificing everyone else is another.

>when there's a hostage who will die
Never come close to him. What's he going to do if Korra is nowhere nearby? Kill Jinora for teh evulz? If she did nothing, Vaatu is guaranteed not to escape, and Jinora will probably die. If she freed Vaatu, everyone was probably going to die. Which is the smarter option?

Of course, none of this would have been necessary if she just tore Unalaq apart with bloodbending or drowned him in lava.
>>
>>70618449
>"And you truly have become the legend of, Korra."
>>
>>70629361
I swear to all that is holy I sincerely thought this show was going to end with Korra...dead and in spirit form saying something like "And now you know my legend."
>>
>>70627564
> There was no avoiding Harmonic Convergence. That was going to happen

the effects harmonic convergence had only happened because the portals were open. And there is no way to open them without the avatar, if he knew of one, he would have opened them without her.

> How the fuck can you blame her for being fooled and then forced into opening the portals?

Forced? forced how? there is no way to force her to do it. She willingly did it to "try and save a little girl", which is stupid. Sacrifice the world for a girl? not only that one that would have died even if she opened the portals (she only not died there because of plot armor).

it happened before and they didn't get sudden benders when the portals were closed.
>>
>>70627800
not showing the shit does not mean it is not happening. What we know is that evil spirits exists, and there are a lot of them, powerful or not. And now they can just pass through. Believing not even one of them did it is stupid.

>>70629488

She then inhabits the body of a Tumblrite Quadriplegic Trans Male to Female Muslim Irish Quandroon in modern day Avatar Earth or whatever planet they call it.

>spirits can move quickly
And never show a desire to.

>no time limit
Harmonic Convergence.

>travel all over the world
Why would they? The dark spirits appear rabid and there aren't that many of them at any point.

>if Vaatu was freed
>she could beat him
She failed to. Twice. With huge power advantages over him.

>there's a backup
You mean when Raava is reborn in ten thousand years and humanity is extinct?

>why it's beneficial to save Jinora
It wasn't.

>Jinora dying would have destroyed their morale
Who gives a fuck about morale when they're not being ass raped by spirits?

>how would Korra know when Unalaq was away
She knew he was in the spirit world. The camp was overrun. All she had to do was close the portal from the outside, sealing him in.

>South Pole was fortified
And she was the Avatar. Yakone could shut down a courtroom with the Avatar and Toph with a wink of the eye. Imagine what a native waterbending Avatar could accomplish with it in the State.

>>70629258
>saving a life
And damning millions in the process, including people who were already dead.

>she had to do it
Or strike down Unalaq. But she didn't, because she is an idiot who never studied up.

Like when she threatened a judge with bodily harm, asked an officer of the law to lie, freed assassins, didn't help people in need, etc?

>if spirits gave people airbending
It's her fault for releasing them in the first place.
>>
by the way, to the people saying that harmonic convergence alone could have give bending to people with the portals closed

1- it didn't happened before when the portals were closed on the other harmonic convergence

2- Korra acually states that it was her fault in the show.
>>
>>70629566
we are never told exactly from when to when it happens, but the thing is, they were open and let open and this is what influenced the whole thing; this is what went different. Korra herself says that it was her fault.
>>
Remember how Vaatu revealed that he opened the portals the first time, which lead to the near destruction of Human civilization to the point where they had to live on Gamera's back because every spirit was trying kill humans.
>>
>>70629317
You save the life in immediate danger and then work to fix the situation.
>>
>>70629725
There was no guarantee whatsoever that Jinora would survive Vaatu being freed, and a chance the Dark Avatar kills her in adulthood anyway. You go with what you know.
>>
>>70629592
>saving a life. And damning millions in the process, including people who were already dead.
Its not a choice, she has to do it or be in the wrong morally.

>Or strike down Unalaq. But she didn't, because she is an idiot who never studied up.
Im assuming this is when He has jinora hostage. Korra cant use bending right there because her body didn't enter the spirit world.

>Like when she threatened a judge with bodily harm, asked an officer of the law to lie, freed assassins, didn't help people in need, etc?
The judge was "evil", asked him to say nothing, which assassins? If you mean Zaheers crew that was all Zaheer (possibly spirits).

>It's her fault for releasing them in the first place.
She didn't have to release the spirits since they were outside the spirit world before any portals were opened. examples are the dark spirits and Heibai from Atla.
>>
>>70629725
you mean jinora? you do realize she didn't save her, right? she only lives because of plot armor. She should have died either way.
>>
>>70620693

Korea was written to be an opposite of Aang the problem was that they didn't work with that idea and failed in the execution.
>>
>>70629858
>It's not a choice
It is a choice.

>she has to do it or be in the wrong morally
The morally right thing to do is guarantee everyone else doesn't die.

>Korra couldn't use bending
She was in the spirit world bodily when she opened the portals, she had full access to bending and the State.

>judge was evil
Based on what? He passed a legitimate verdict she had no reason to believe was untrue.

>asked him to say nothing
About what he knew was unlawful activity which he had power to stop (which he swore he would). That is illegal and morally repugnant.

>which assassins
Unalaq's.

>she didn't release the spirits
She did. Only a few spirits manifested outside the spirit world prior to Convergence, afterwards they could freely move between worlds.
>>
>>70621221

Wasn't the second season literally good versus bad? Literally the power of food fighting the power of evil?
>>
>>70626490
We all know Mike is a closet Avatarfag.
Wish he would do a Plinkett review for Korra.
>>
>>70630031
>It is a choice.
In a world with objective morality it is not a choice.

>She was in the spirit world bodily when she opened the portals, she had full access to bending and the State.
When jinora is a hostage and Unalaq threatens Korra into opening the second portal Korras body is not in the spirit world.

>Based on what? He passed a legitimate verdict she had no reason to believe was untrue.
He sentenced an innocent man first to death, then to life in prison.

>Unalaq's Assassins
Only after she found out Unalaq was also evil. Which means the assassins are good people.

>About what he knew was unlawful activity which he had power to stop (which he swore he would). That is illegal and morally repugnant.
It was unlawful to try and get URC to war with Unalaq, but it was the morally right decision.

>She did. Only a few spirits manifested outside the spirit world prior to Convergence, afterwards they could freely move between worlds.
This is all about someone saying the spirits granted people airbending in which case Korra cannot be blamed for "giving" Zaheer airbending.
>>
...when i posted saying that season 2-3-4 were her fault, i didn't think i would need to explain that, but anyway...

1. she could Not open the second portal, killing jinora (who should have died either way) but saving the world

2. she could have waited until after harmonic convergence to close the first portal. It is debatable if anything would happen with one portal open, but this seems to be a better plan than going into the spirit world with nothing to protect yourself. In their defense, they didn't know that unalaq was there, but still waiting is a better plan, even considering that unalaq needed Both portals for his plan to work and they knew there, and at the time no one could even think of a problem of letting one portal open just until harmonic convergence is over to close it later.

3. airbending back is her fault >>70629620

you can also add. that people were tortured by the earth queen because of that airbending and forced into her army.

4. season 4 happened because of season 3 that happened because of season 2 that happened because of Korra.

the main problem is not that shit happened. The problem is that she didn't do anything to try and minimize the damage. Closing the portals, trying to get rid of the vines for more than two weeks in which she was lazying around, riding with her friend, solving problems with spirits, etc. In season 4 she had no idea even who Kuvira was until the airbender kids find her, it's like she doesn't give a shit about what happened to the world after season 3.
>>
>>70627722
I could see that, though Aang's story how it is I feel would be far more interesting than if he was in Korras position.
>>
>>70627722
> just as Aang was active when Korra would have been the ideal Avatar

you're kidding, right? she received formal training as an avatar and still got her butt kicked by nonbenders. She lost to the 'dark avatar' who had 1 bending. She lost to zaheer (poisoned, but whatever; she is the avatar, should be able to just smash him even like that), and she lost to Kuvira.

she is older than aang, let us remember that.
>>
>>70630237
....by the way, there is a bigger problem in the plot of season 2

why.... in god's name... did unalaq started a civil war knowing that the avatar wouldn't stand at his side?
seriously... couldn't that have waited until she opened both portals? is he just that dumb?
>>
>>70630387
>lost to nonbenders
So I guess no one remembers that time Aang got his ass beat by a bunch of archers. At least Korra lost to Chi blockers
>>
>>70630449
> a bunch of archers

you mean the most trained archers in the world? (plural)

against....

1 unarmed chi blocker
>>
>>70630220
>world with objective morality
The moral thing to do is save everyone. By the way, were was this morality confirmed? I don't recall Raava doing so nor having the authority to (nor sanctioning the action).

>when Unalaq threatens Korra into the opening the second portal
She does, Vaatu gets out and she immediately enters the State to fight him, because walked in bodily. You're thinking the first time when she astral projected inside. Korra had full access to her bending and no excuse for not striking down Unalaq.

>sent an innocent man to death
>innocent
>was aware of a plot to kill the sovereign/his brother
>high treason
wut.

>found out Unalaq was bad
You mean from the man she was threatening with bodily harm who would have said anything to prevent it, that we are never shown a flashback of Unalaq actually tempting the spirits to attack, and was never proven in a court of law? Sounds legit.

>people trying to kill sovereigns
>who have only lawfully exercised their power and harmed no one
>good people
...you were saying something about objective morality?

>it was morally right
>to directly disobey a democratically elected leader
>and instigate insubordination in the military
>to an ally nation
>who is her rightful sovereign
A jest can be taken too far, Anon.

>the spirits granted airbending
Which they couldn't have done without Harmonic Convergence having occurred with the portals open.
>>
>>70630449
She lost to chi blockers twice with three elements and a lifetime of training at an older age as a girl, who mature faster, in direct combat, whereas Aang was trying to collect frogs for his friends and was a pacifist.
>>
>>70630673
> Which they couldn't have done without Harmonic Convergence having occurred with the portals open.

as i said in another post, Korra states that airbending coming back was her fault in S04.
