She's played by Anne Heche? That's sort of surprising casting.

The Earth Queen is a stubborn old micromangaing hag, which makes sense since she's based off of Cixi (THANKS FOR THE LINK MARITOVA) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empress_Dowager_Cixi

Jinora using her spirit projection was a chilling moment, especially when she explored the old Lake Laogi from Book 2 of ATLA, including the spot Jet died

The jailbreak was incredible, as was the stand-off with the Dai Li. Airbending bombed them the fuck out. The puppy love between Jinora and Kai is adorable as well as daddy Tenzin's reaction to them.

Zaofu is a breathtaking setting, Suyin is a very fascinating character. Anne Heche did a fine job. I wonder what skeletons she and Lin have that drove them so far apart

TOPH IS ALIVE AND ROAMING THE EARTH. If we get a Toph cameo in Book 3 I will flip my shit.

Zaheer is a motherfucking badass. As is the rest of his gang. It's fitting that after 13 years of not seeing his girl they immediately try to get in each others' pants. I find it hard to hate him yet until we discover his motive

Opal is a sweetie, the scene where she and Korra are airbending together drew me into a trance. Korra's people skills have definitely leveled up in Book 3. Though she still has that hotblooded edge when she gets pissed off. That last line she said to Lin was ICE COLD.

Regarding the jailbreak part I thought it was odd that they split into two teams (one to save Kai and one for everyone else). There could have been multiple people imprisoned in the cells or Kai could have been returned to this group at night; yet for some reason they acted according to what the viewer knew, not what they knew. I guess this scene needed more of Jinora doing night reconnaissance.

It will be interesting to see what effect annoying the Earth Queen has on the overall plot.

I'm confused by Tumblr. How does Toph leaving her kids' fathers out of their lives and being a single mom make her a super feminist icon and symbol of women's empowering? I mean, it's her choice and depending on the circumstances that might have been the better decision, or she may truly have been an irresponsible parent and lover, but we don't even fucking know yet.

And purposefully treating men as little more than breeding stock and shutting them off from the children they helped to create isn't exactly what I consider good feminist ideals either. I'm no MRA but willfully downplaying the role that men play in the family is kind of shitty considering stay-at-home dads and the like already get shat on enough by other men. And way to diminish the struggles most single mothers go through. You don't absolutely need a father/second mother in the family but at the same time not having one isn't desirable or enviable either and shouldn't be promoted for the sake of feminist liberation or whatever the SJW are trying to pass it off as these days.

I think that it was either a plan to artificially inflate the ratings by forcing people to all watch it online initially, rather than catching it on repeats or on legit places online, at least until they started balancing out how people could watch them.

That or the lack of notice meant they couldn't tell iTunes in time, whichever.

My guess it was less a "breeding stock" idea, and more that Toph might not have felt the actual need to get married, due to her enormous level of power, wealth and independant streak.

Like, she was probably in a relationship with the two dads, but it fell apart for reasons as time progressed, either due to Toph's personality, or a "disagreement" or something.

Can't say that her parenting style was unsuccessful though, as there doesn't appear to be actual resentment there aimed at her, and both of her kids did really, REALLY well for themselves. What with Lin being the head cop in one the world's new superpower, and with Suyin apparently being a billionaire genius who founded her own country/commune before she even hit middle age.

I am curious as to what happened to cause Lin to dislike Suyin and that entire half of the family though, considering it happened 30 years ago, her sister would have only been 15 at the time, and holding a grudge for THAT long over something a teenager did is... kind of messed up.

Maybe she felt that Toph, despite what Suyin said, preferred her young sibling and her family to her or something? That or Toph sensed that Suyin had built and entire city decided to her (complete with giant statues) and decided to play favourites.

Speaking of Toph, since she's alive, wouldn't she have taught Korra earthbending, possibly? I mean, she is/was the Greatest Earthbender In The World, you'd think that that her teaching Aang might have made Katara ask her friend over to do some tutoring. Though, considering the South Pole is frozen tundra and ice, maybe Toph wouldn't have been able to see where she was going with her footvision and had to decline, I don't know.

Guess we'll have to wait till next week to get more info on that bit of stuff. As for Teacher Toph, maybe the idea of teaching another Avatar was too much for her after Aang passing. Or maybe that was after she'd started here wandering and nobody knows how to contact her.

Well Nick have revealed the name of Zahneer and his group,

http://espanolbot.tumblr.com/post/91935149028/confirmed-zaheer-and-gang-are-called-the-red-lotus

Makes sense in the context of them trying to kidnap babby Korra, and with how Zahneer appeared to study airbending at a level that he probably could have taught Korra airbending even if he wasn't given superpowers...

I'm cautiously putting money on Aang teaching Zahneer but his misinterpretation of Aang's message lead to him killing Aang, though though would kind of retcon the previously established explanation of "the 100 years of suspended animation just caught up with him".

Plus if Aang was murdered... that's kind of a huge deal they'd surely have mentioned earlier. Even if it would justify the extreme prison that they stuck him in, even before he got superpowers.
