Chapter 7 – The Aftermath (review made on 5.20.2012)
1. Tarrlok at the beginning of the episode taking the place of Shiro. I seriously thought it was a flashback and that I somehow missed an episode or maybe Nick was showing the wrong one. I guess we all kind of expected him to blame Lin after he clarified in the last episode that she will take responsibility. Now that I think back, it might be that Tarrlok made sure she will fail just so the people would want to have a new leader for the police force and Tarrlok would be able to raid all reported chi-blocker hideouts. I still think that last raid in ep4 was staged, though.
2. Korra was thrilled at the idea of having Mako and Bolin live with her at Air Temple Island and I became sad for her when they told her Asami already offered the same. Look at Korra’s face. She felt rejected but tried not to dwell on it. And Bolin, what are you doing? I thought you would jump at the chance to spend more time with Korra. But no. He was so excited to live in the mansion. But I couldn’t help but love him and Pabu in that “puppeteer” scene.
3. Let’s take a moment to notice how people disregarded the “crime scene, no entry” sign outside. Well, I assume that’s what it says. I mean, Asami must have snuck in, too, right?
4. Lao Gan Long. Remember that name. The name of a man who never gave up his cabbages no matter how many times these were trampled upon. Yes, my fellow fans, he will forever be an icon and a good example for all of us. And so, we erected his own statue because his legacy will live on.
And did anybody catch it when Tenzin said the firebender #3 was part of the Agni Kai triad? Firebender #1 “mugged” and cut down Mako’s parents in front of him. Firebender #2 “extorted” Amon’s father. Hmmm… all of them seem like a gang thing to me.
Meh, I’ll go to bed now but I’ll write a review in the coming days and do other fan thing to try and calm myself while waiting TWO WHOLE WEEKS for the next episode.
After all the trolling you’ve done to us, your loyal fans, I believe it wouldn’t have mattered much to give us a shirtless Mako and Bolin. I don’t know if those were standard 1920’s swimming attires and I don’t care.
We want Mako and Bolin shirtless. In the pool. Now.
Pabu is perfect. Just leave him be.
Thank you for your consideration.
Your lowly fans
PS: Korra in a bikini doesn’t sound so bad, either. No? Okay. You can just have her in her water tribe bindings. Yeah, that’s better.
Posting this at 2 am because whatever. I’m going to be out of town this weekend. My only connection to the internet will probably just be on my phone.
I did this cover forever ago whenever I first heard mylifeisavatarthelastairbender’s lyrics for this which are completely GENIUS and her voice is just…. gorgeous. I don’t know why I’m even posting my crappy version, but I am. I couldn’t get it out of my head. It’s just that amazing.
And if you guys want to make my night/day you could give this Korra Nation link a click. <333
Yes that was very shameless, but I doubt this is going to get a lot of notes (if any).
Based on the Track Team’s melody.
I Lost My Heart In Republic City
I lost my heart, In republic city, The most booming city in bloom. Where at night all the world’s aglow.
I left my love, at ol’ air isle, When I was soaring, above the sky, I see its light from my window.
Guys leave with their dolls, As day fades and night falls, gentle and refined as a polished pearl.
But the city at night, Is why my heart took flight, And now I’m the city’s gal!
I lost my heart, In republic city, The most boomingest city in bloom. I see its light from my window.
