I actually just finished Book 3 the other day, bought it on my Xbox One via the Xbox Video app, and oh boy do I have to agree with those who said this season got dark. I mean, especially those last few episodes. They really
did not shy away from the fact that they were killing people.
I gotta say though, I thought it was kinda funny that Mako finally electrocuted the evil water-bender, because right before he did it, I was wondering "Why hasn't he been lightning-bending? Have the writers actually forgotten he has that ability?" And then boom, blast of lightning straight into the water. Not only that, but Zaheer bending the air out of the Earth Queen's lungs and suffocating her like that? That was twisted even by my standards.
I know its been circulating around for a few weeks now, but there is a little quote that the internet has received in past weeks that i feel is very true and Nick may have realized. "Legend of Korra is not a kids show, it's a show for adults who first saw Avatar TLA ten years ago and cant get enough [of the universe]"
That seems very appropriate and I hope it's a trend that continues. I've enjoyed Legend of Korra immensely since Book 1, but Book 3 is the first time I've felt like it's truly lived up to the best of The Last Airbender.
Loved it. Wished the characters were a bit more mature, but the story and the mythology and all of that were great. Not sure how they're going to get her healed up. Maybe the air benders will be the big figures in Book 4 and Korra will be like Oracle from DC Comics?
doubt she's actually paralyzed. I think it's more that the poison took such a toll on her that she's still too weak to walk or stand on her own for very long. She'll recover with time.
My big hope for Books 4 & 5 is that the Red Lotus becomes the constant big bad, like the Fire Nation was in TLA. My one big gripe with Legend of Korra so far was the lack of a consistent villain through the seasons. That was my favorite thing about The Last Airbender, and I was really sad to see that change with Legend of Korra.
