Zaheer has a message to send to Korra, and it's up to the Bending Bros to make like the Postal Service and deliver. But what is his message?! We'll find out in this penultimate week of Book 3 releases. Finale next week!
Check it 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).
For those with Amazon Video, they in fact did release last week's episode at 4AM EST again. So if any night owl east coasters want the ep it should be up by then if they hold to this pattern. West Coasters check out Amazon at 1AM local time. I was able to watch the last two episodes in High Def on my Wii U at 4AM and was able to avoid online spoilers :3
This episode was definitely Tenzin's to really show how much of a fucking badass he is. His whole fuck you to the Red Lotus and the fights afterward were spectacular. Tenzin was murking Zaheer 1 on 1 and it was satisfying. It took a fucking 4 on 1 assault to contain Tenzin and that closing shot of him getting pounded on was shudder worthy. As was his foreboding "As long as I have breath in me" line. Don't die Tenzin. D:
Mako and Bolin's grandmother was comedic gold this episode. I loved the rib where she suggested Mako date Korra or Asami. I love when the writers throw in little self-aware jokes like that.
This was the most distressed we've ever seen Jinora. Not even when she was in the midst of getting her Spirit threatened to get blown to smithereens was she as rattled as when Kai was shot out of the sky by Combustion Sniper Woman.
Speaking of her, I'm reporting her to the Admin for using autoaim hacks and spawn camping. What a fucking newb.
Lastly, 'sup Iroh! It would be great if he remains a recurring spirit world advice giver for Korra. I think everyone wants a Zuko and Iroh reunion in the Spirit World sometime in Book 4 now that Zuko knows he's there. My one gripe with Iroh telling Korra ask Zuko what Aang would have done is that, yeah sure Zuko and Aang were BFFs, but what about Aang's freakin' widow Katara? Sure it probably isn't practical to take a long trip to the South pole to ask her with Zuko being right there but a little lip service about Katara could have sufficed.
>>117781 The stakes are pretty damn high, but not apocalyptically so, and there are too many plates spinning to be resolved in two episodes. I think it's a fair bet that the events of this season are setting the show up for something seismic in the next season.
This sort of slow-burn pace seems to click more with Bryke's skillset, so I'm definitely looking forward to whatever they have planned these next couple of episodes.
Anyone know why this episode was called Little Brother? Was it meant to be about Tenzin, Bolin, or Kai (Bolin referred to Kai as his new little brother).
>>117782 Actually it's possible to resolve this in two episodes. In ep 12 have the Red Lotus leave the Air temple with the Avatar heading whenever they need to go to do whatever they're trying to do (unless for whatever reason they decide to use the Avatar to do whatever in the Air temple, rather than the airship). In ep 13 have everyone stop the Red Lotus in a big battle (this will be easier if the battle is in the northern air temple).
Is there any way to watch past the first commercial break on Nick? I have it whitelisted on my Adblock but even if I refresh and skip past the first commercial break line it just gives me a black screen. Also I don't see any volume controls on the site. Am I just not looking around properly or are they actually not there?
>>117800 They do but Netflix actually gives a flip to promote what they have since they know it wont get casual views elsewhere. Nick were dealing with a Network that just doesn't care anymore. Heck they likely won't do anything for Ninja Turtles even though its got a lot of power behind it right now.
