I not certain what the plan was behind the recap episode.

It's unnecessary, out of place in the narrative, and serves as a reminder of the core faults of the show. Mako reviewed the shows overemphasis on shipping and how the romantic relationships are superficial audience pleasures that ultimately lead nowhere. Korra reviewed her her faults in fulfilling her role as protagonist by often causing the conflicts within the show not because it was a natural mistake for her character but due to the need to drive the plot forward. Bolin reviewed how the showed is often one-dimensional, absurd, and equally ridiculous in actuality to the proposed hyperbole.

If it weren't for Varrick's recap slash movie mover pitch I'd have probably dropped the show entirely with this one episode.

Varrick calling it a "mover" just makes you realize how silly the word "movies" really is.

I didn't care for the recap episode. And am not sure why they did it. Maybe they just wanted a reason to use the chibi-portraits? I don't think any of the Korra episodes had the super deformed like the little extras from the first series.

Oh, if you haven't seen the extras from the Aang series, they are pretty good. I like the one where they are all in school.

There is no justification for clip episodes.

So apparently Nick decided to put Korra back on TV for the final episodes.

Yea, that sucks about the budget. Of course, I couldn't even watch the 2nd half of the ep because Nick.com's player wasn't working properly. Oh well.

I just burned through the last episodes.

The pacing felt better this season. Probably because relatively speaking it was a smaller story, which worked out. Of course, it may have been better had they not made Kuvira so straight out evil.

Also Korra x Asami... the best type of Lesbians.

What did the two Chinese(?) characters mean at the end?

"Zhu Li Moon, will you do the thing for the rest of our lives?" Smiley: cry

Season could have been much better if they didn't treat Kuvira so hamfistedly. Not to mention the Narutoian Lecture no Jutsu end.
"I BECAME SAD AFTER BEING POISONED!"
"OMG U TOTALLY GET ME I LOSE"
At least we have a theme song for her *. The final scene was cute, neither adding or taking away anything from the show. Overall every relationship involving Korra seemed pointless and forced. Instead of trying to cultivate a single relationship like with Aang, they just kind of threw Korra at everyone in hopes of appealing to every 'ship faction.

Bolin's Magma Frisbee was pretty badass. The next avatar is an Earthbender, unless they skip, and I hope they play with that a bit more.

* : The Earth Kingdom was having trouble
What a sad, sad story
Needed a new leader to restore
Its former glory

Where oh where was she?
Where could that gal be?
We look around
And then we found
The dame for you and me!

And now it's ...
Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom
Si Wong is happy and gay!
We've got no need for Royalty
Take this, the storm of our Loyalty!
Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom
Gaoling is smiling once more
Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom
Watch out, Yu Dao
We're going on tour!

Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom
(Yes, it's springtime!)
Winter for Laofu and Yi
Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom!
Metal benders,
Come and dance with me!

I was born in Ba Sing Se and that is why I'm called Kuei.
Don't be stupid be a smarty, pledge loyalty to Kuvira's party!


The Uniter is coming! The Uniter is coming! The Uniter is coming!

Heil Kuvira!

Heil Kuvira!

Heil Kuvira!
Springtime for Kuvira and the Earth Kingdom!

Heil Kuvira!

Heil myself ...
Heil to me ...
I'll conquer Yu Dao and change our history!
Heil myself
Raise your hand
There's no greater dictator in the land!

Everything I do, I do for you!
(Yes you do!)
If you're looking for order, pledge your loyalty too!
Heil myself
Raise your beer!
(YES SIR!)
Ev'ry hotsy-totsy Nazi stand and cheer!
-wait, shit!

Hooray!
Ev'ry hotsy-totsy Nazi ...
(Wait, that's wrong)
Ev'ry hotsy-totsy Nazi ...
(I'm not actually Hitler!)
Ev'ry hotsy-totsy Nazi ...
(Forget it ...)
Stand and cheer!

There are rumors that due to the **** up that is "The Last Airbender" and the low ratings for Korra that this is the last Avatar series, period.

The monstrosity of a Movie aside, even with its flaws, the Korra series was decent enough that it could have been more successful if handled correctly by the network schedule.

Yea, Nick tried their hardest to run the show into the ground, and I also don't know that there will ever be another one. I thought the episode was good up until the spirit realm part. Then it just went downhill from there Smiley: frown.

Pretty sure it's just the equivalent of "The End". The 2nd character means "End", not sure about the 1st character though.

You beat me to it, but since your link is Kotaku, here's a different one.

That's kinda cool. Guess I'll have to check it out on DVD when the full series is available.

I guess some people were still hoping that Korra would be straight so that she can continue to be their waifu.
