More mysteries abound at the temple as Tenzin’s daughter discovers something emanating from one of the former Avatar’s statues. From the scenes at the Air Temple, there looks to be multiple storylines and settings for us to explore as the season continues.
Both ‘Rebel Spritis’ and ‘The Southern Lights’ are exciting episodes to start off the new season of Korra. Amon and his group of Equalists may be a thing of the past, but as with any new adventure, a new evil must arise. Unalaq says that opening the portal was just one step in healing the South, but is that all Korra’s uncle is after? If peace was what Unalaq desired, then why didn’t he try to heal his relationship with his brother (Tonraq)? Korra is going to have to learn to control her pride and impatience before she pushes away everyone in her life who cares for her.
Even with all of the drama, DiMartino and Konietzko haven’t forgotten to make us laugh. Bolin knows how to soften a serious moment, while the addition of actress Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Rec) as Eska helps to lighten the mood in the most dire of scenarios.
Is it too much to ask of a young woman like Korra to balance being the Avatar, having a boyfriend, and learning what it means to be an adult all at the same time? Korra’s battle with her own emotions could be her most difficult challenge yet. She will most likely have to deal with her internal struggle before she can take on the dangers that threaten those she holds most dear.
The Legend of Korra continues next Friday with ‘Civil Wars: Part 1’ @7pm on Nickelodeon. Check out a preview below:
