All of our heroes are in custody of separate forces! Everyone's making a bee-line back to Ba Sing Se, shit's about to get super fucking real!

What's in store this week? Find out at 12 Noon EST on Nick.com (free with ads), the Nick mobile App (free with ads), Hulu Plus, Amazon Video, Google Play, and Xbox ($1.99 per episode).

Amazon put up last week's episode at 4AM EST. I'm going to keep an eye out for another early release.

So what Zaheer did to the Earth Queen, was that the air bending equivalent of blood bending?

It might be the equivalent in that it's the super deadly taboo move, but I don't think it's the same as bending metal or lightning.

Good thing the Earth Queen was a villain, rather than just inept, or it would have made what Zaheer did to her seem morally questionable.

Still, he was executing a helpless woman. And she was just so clueless until a minute before dying.
The bloody eyes, the sounds she made... ugh.

Doubtful since this is a kid's show, but I wonder if they're going to be dealing with the poor people looting from the rich places and killing/torturing them for vengeance. Obviously rape is out of the question, even though that has traditionally happened with such uprisings.

Uh at the most they'll likely only do looting.

Keep forgetting this place exists. This rather impressive method of killing made people ask all sorts of questions. Well, here are my 2 cents.

The way bending is presented in-universe, is that you use your body's chi to manipulate things outside yourself. In order to bend anything inside someone else's body, be it blood or air, you will have to overpower that person's own chi. So it's not a simple matter of killing someone with a flick of a finger; it takes the highest level of skill, and lots of power and concentration.

Makes sense he put a good amount of effort into that move. Not something one could do flippantly.

Pretty impressive that someone who was a non-bender until a few weeks ago is able to do this. Even Amon could initially only use blood bending during a full moon.

I feel like the Red Lotus members' backstories are still kinda underwhelming, though maybe later episodes will focus on that.

It was nice to see Asami actually contribute for a change. So frequently it seems like the show's writers just don't know what to do with her. I was a bit bummed to see how easily the Di Lee agents were dispatched by the Red Lotus. It would have been neat to see two "bad guy" groups butt heads and actually provide an even match (or at least not a landslide victory).

Keep in mind that Zaheer was pretty much the airbending equivalent of a weaboo and mostly already knew what he was doing when his powers first manifested.

He got those deluxe edition Air Bending Scrolls, that and likely talked to a few spirits in the spirit world as well before Korra opened the portals.

Yeah, worth remembering: if the majority of bending strength/skill is in learning, performing, and mixing the somatic components (which seems to be the case), then there's no reason someone couldn't become a master airbender without ever actually having the ability to bend.

Yea he's incredibly attuned to the Spirit World and has clearly traversed it for a while being able just to instant transmission to the fog and back. I wouldn't be surprised if he'd conversed with Iroh a couple of times about his goals and such.

The Dai Li have never been tremendously good in a stand-up fight. They're trained to be secret police, striking from the shadows and restraining targets before they even know they're there. Without the element of surprise, they're just kind of okay. That's why, when they did get involved in a stand-up fight in the original series, they would spend so much time shooting themselves around on pillars and deforming the arena and otherwise moving around - by focusing on mobility, they hope to restore some of that element of surprise by attacking from unexpected angles.
