anyway i just caught up on the last 6 episodes of legend of korra and BOY DO I HAVE SOME FEELINGS
where do i start???? well first of all the show was finally getting to be good. korra not acting like a total dickhat to every person who crosses her path, apologizing to tenzin, taking her job seriously... i was pretty glad. and omg baby korra was so cute i couldn't stand it and i want my own dragonfly bunny omfg. and iroh OMG i wanted to cry. although his new voice actor makes him sound mexican?
and the twins finally started getting pretty cool too. i think it was really interesting how the evil group in the first show was the fire nation and the water nation was the super peaceful and spiritual one but now the water tribe is evil and the fire nation is practically no where. and the earth kingdom too, actually, which disappointed me because i was noticing how this season had a serious lack of cool earthbending :/
it was all going real smooth until the very end of the last episode. i am so on the fence about korra's decision to leave the portals open. like... the worlds are totally not ready to be merged?? the spirits are kinda bold and brash not to mention they hate humans and always have? and the humans in the material world don't have any reverence for spirits and would have no idea how to interact with them, which was true even in aang's time when there was more spiritual awareness but now in korra's time it's got to be even worse. god even in wan's time the humans from his lion turtle were using their bending to kill spirits COME ON KORRA ugh. i feel like she didn't think that through at all and tenzin was just like "lol yea cool" ugh. and how about the link to past avatars being broken?? they better fix it b/c aang/korra getting advice from past avatars was one of my favorite things
anyway that's probably what the future seasons will revolve around - korra solving disputes between spirits and humans and i can already feel the secondhand stress/embarrassment of watching korra blunder her way through that too. i hope they give some more backstory/history stuff about all that happened in aang's time
even though i'm finally feeling pretty satisfied with LoK, i'll still probably go on pretending this is some wacky spin-off and the original ATLA never got a sequel heh
