Jinora got her tattoos and it was the most amazing scene in the whole book
If you really look at the storyline as a whole so far, it’s really no surprise that Korra is so broken by the end of the finale. It’s been about 7-8 months since book 1 started and the following has happened:
- 170 AD: Amon terrorizes RC and Korra deals with him.
- 171 AD: 6 months later, Unavaatu destroys Raava and resets the entire cycle.
- TWO WEEKS AFTER HARMONIC CONVERGENCE KORRA HAS TO DEAL WITH THIS NEW THREAT ON TOP OF ESTABLISHING THE NEW AIR NATION.
With each villain, they bring a new taxing issue that sucks everything out of Korra: her emotions, her energy…it takes everything from her. And it’s amazing that she’s held out for so long because that’s three times this has happened.
Three times you have a world threat and it hasn’t even been a year since the start of Korra’s journey.
Not even Aang had to deal with this bullshit within 7-8 months.
3x13’s ending is another reminder to us that Korra’s ultimately just a person. She is just as susceptible to weakness and vulnerability as anyone else, and I think this is a necessary step for her growth not just as the Avatar, but as a person.
The fact that Korra has stuck through all of this absolutely makes her my favorite Avatar, and I will defend her to the death.
let’s just say it was a mind blowing scene
Remember how Janet Varney said that she recorded a scene with Eva Marie Saint (the voice actress of Katara) for book 4? Remember how she said that scene was so powerful that she felt that she could even use the advice Katara gave Korra in her own life?
Guys, do you realize what this means? Katara is going to talk to Korra about recovering. She’s going to tell her that she’s important. She’s going to tell her how much she means to everyone. She’s going to tell her to never give up because Aang, the person she loves more than anyone else, didn’t.
And do you realize how much I will sob when this happens?
A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle after she’s broken.
Just watched the finale of Korra. Absolutely heartbreaking on all accounts. Some happy things though. Not getting into spoilers too much, that final battle really reminded me of between Aang and Ozai’s battle in the original series. I’m actually really excited for this next season! I haven’t been able to say that in preparation for the previous seasons, but I just fell in love with Avatar all over again with this one.
