8 EST Friday night people! The return of Studio Mir!

Lots of people within the production have been praising these episodes. I think we're in for a real treat.

2nd Halloween weekend (Halloween on a Thursday = parties on two weekends). Internet in general has been slow tonight.

I'll make a thread (you know, it's not against the rules if you Anons make the episode thread. I'm always late watching the episodes anyway)

I've half expecting all that we've heard about The Rift to be false and it's another trilogy about Zuko.
>> No. 115710

Considering that the story deals with a joint Earth Kingdom/Fire Nation factory or some shit, I'm sure Zuko will play some role, but it sounds like The Rift is mostly Aang.

SDCC EXCLUSIVE: Yang Takes "Avatar: The Last Airbender" To "The Rift"


Looks to be Toph centric. Maybe she'll reunite with her parents or start the police force.

Katara didn't keep her mouth shut, though, she just said she can see where the colonists are coming from in a less Zuko-like fashion.

Considering how the United Republic elected their first president marking the era of democracy for their world. Would it be possible that Avatar Korra or her father establishes the first Republic of Water? It just feels like this is where the story is leading to for the final resolution.
>> No. 115586
I always thought the Chief was elected through a democratic process. At least after they die/retire. I figured since Sokka was never next in line to be Chief of the SWT, and there's been no mention of Tonraq and Unalaq's family being related to Yue's.

Why did it seem like Korra was a completely new person at the end of the episode? Did she finally learn what it meant to be the Avatar? Has her ego finally gone away or will she still have some of it to drive her forward in some situations? Wan had a bit of an ego too, but eventually learned to not let it define him.

They weren't claiming she was, they were using hyperbole to make fun of people like >>115419 who exaggerate or invent flaws for Korra. Speaking of >>115419, are you really at this again? The previous two bans taught you nothing?
>> No. 115475
Why was he banned twice?
>> No. 115477

For this exact behavior. Again, recognizing the show's faults is fine, saying everything Korra ever did was out of spite, jealousy, or malice is nothing but starting shit.

Women who are sad are still more likely to cry than kiss their ex-boyfriend. They're also more likely to cry than kiss their current boyfriend. So Asami's actions are still out of place.

I didn't know they took a poll on what women are most likely to do when their company has been robbed, their mom is dead and their father is in jail because he was working for a terrorist group and their ex single boyfriend with whom they didn't have a satisfactory breakup with has just told them they weren't going to give up on them.

So this tumblr person is slowly uploading the NYCC panel. If you want to watch a recorded version of Beginnings pt 1 with some dude's head in the way, here you go:


The episode is on parts 2 and 3. And don't panic when the camera rises up to high, s/he fixes it pretty quick.

Anyone have a full version?

Clip from the first episode.

Really great they're finally touching down on the whole 'fire is life' bit ATLA had with that healing in the beginning.

Also I'm feeling ridiculous so I'm betting five bucks the old lady is Azula (jokingly).

Serena Williams made a return to Avatar as the voice of one of the Fire Sages in that scene.

What could they do if they were to do a series where the population of the world has expanded into the space age and now people reside in the heavens? How would this effect the spirit world when it's confirmed that a celestial body is a spirit? Would this mean other bodies also have a spirit or at least one in the spirit world? Would that realm be larger than one has previously thought? How would bending translate into an atmosphere with no oxygen? Will earthbenders resides on asteroids? Will waterbenders reside on icy planets and comets? Will firebenders reside on hot planets like Venus or Mustafar? Will airbenders be left behind on humanity's original planet?

What role will the Avatar play in this scenario?

Pic is unrelated.

You seem to forgot that the spirits actually exist in their world and may still have something to do with bending.

No, it makes sense, eventually they're going to enter a stage where they're going to want scientific answers to such phenomenons as bending and even the spirit world.

Actually, you know who should have helped them in the season finale? Bumi. How much better would his characterization be if we actually saw him being a commander instead of just hearing about it and then seeing him retired? Everything we know about his leadership skills comes exclusively from hear-say.
>> No. 114825
Bumi will be brought into this soon enough either being recalled to active status or enlisting in the SWT forces once the family air vacation comes to a close.
>> No. 114826
I'm sure he has a role in the coming conflict, but how much better would his characterization be if we actually got to know him before season 2 started?

Here's an idea. Write the final scene of the final season of TLOK.

What would you do to give a series like this a powerful capstone? Could be hopeful, could be tragic, could be funny, could be shocking could be the Sopranos. Don't put any limiters on your thoughts, just because it's a kids show.
I'm partly inspired by all the ending of Breaking Bad theories that were buzzing around. And partly by the following from /co/ proper:
>15 years later
>the world is plunged in perpetual war and chaos
>Asami Sato sits in her luxurious office at the top of the Future industries high rise which looms over Republic City
>Korra bursts in, the secretary failing to tell her off
>she looks squalid, limping her way to Asami's mahagony desk
>"Thought you might have time for an old friend."
>Asami puts on a placid smile
>"Korra, it's been too long. Did you get the flowers I sent you?"
>"Sure, didn't do much to ease the sting of having shrapnel picked out of my leg though."
>"I truly am sorry about all that. You need to be more careful out in public. I can't really govern how our products are used."
>"I'm not going to ask you to stop manufacturing, Asami. I'm not that stupid. I came to you for different reasons."

I just like endings that seem really grim until the very last moment, where the hero gets back up and says "Fuck it! This isn't over."

And then the rest is up to you.
More stuff should end that way.

Obviously they won't be taking any big risks, since this is Nick, but I was hoping for a scene similar to the one where Toph accidentally kisses Suki. Bolin is about to kiss "Eska", then discovers his mistake. Since this would be involving two guys instead of girls, I'm sure they wouldn't actually get to do it even by accident, but an attempt would be nice.

It could go either way whether the SWT had an engagement necklace tradition, given Katara's reaction back in "The Waterbending Master". The important exchange is...

* * *

KATARA: Thanks for the lesson.

YUGODA: So, who's the lucky boy?


YUGODA (pointing at her neck): Your betrothal necklace. You're getting married, right?

KATARA (smiling): No, I don't think I'm ready for that yet. My grandmother gave my mother this necklace, and my mother passed it down to me.

I didn't notice Senna wasn't wearing one, kind of odd considering her husband would have been chief of the NWT if Unalaq hadn't fucked it up. Tonraq must have abandoned those traditions to assimilate better into the South? Or something?

The betrothal necklace Eska gave to Bolin was an extreme example, but since it was still recognised as such, that still proves that not all necklaces must look exactly like Katara's. Furthermore, the important part of the necklace which designates it as a betrothal seems to be the dark fabric band, not the decorations. So just by looking at it, Kya is definitely wearing one, and it wasn't passed down to her by Katara.

We also know that, because Katara's grandmother decided to pass it down, it probably wasn't a tradition in the South when she was young. If it is now, it must have been introduced by Northern immigrants to helped to rebuild the South after the war. Since Senna isn't wearing one though I think this is unlikely and the South still doesn't give a fuck about necklaces.

Given all this, it's extremely likely Kya was married (or at least engaged) to a man from the North. I wonder where he is now?
>> No. 114596
I'm betting that in Korra's time, particularly in the South, it's just something you can do if you want to. Maybe when Senna and Tonraq were dating she mentioned not wanting a necklace or something.
