By the way is the season correlation something made for the Franchise or does it come from a myth? (Speaking of which, are there any Chinese mythological systems of note that use a four element system?)

The season correlation is present in several franchise materials. I don't know if it's based on a Chinese system, the Chinese elements are different than the ones in the show which are more similar to Western and Hindu primary elements. The opening draws parallel between the seasons and the Avatar, "And like the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of the Avatar began anew."

(This observation isn't mine. It's relayed from something I saw on Tumblr, from user Korrawr. No link as there's copyrighted material involved in that post.)

Korra's mother? When we see her and her husband inside their home, she isn't wearing a betrothal necklace. So presumably that tradition didn't catch on in the South following the North's relief mission.

Nah, they just have yet to make it legal. No wonder Korra doesn't worry too much about rules.

Perhaps they aren't always worn during the marriage.  The only case we've seen is Kya and we can't be certain Hakoda proposed with it.

^Maybe he is the Lieutenant character. Lieutenant of the Metalbenders like how Toph's daughter is the chief.

I believe the Lieutenant character voiced by Lance Henriksen is this guy:

If what I heard in the vid was was the Lieutenant, then it could actually be Richard Epcar.

The Cheif and Tenzin definately have the same badge. Council badge? Will we get some sweet bureaucratic action? Oh wait, this isn't a prequel like the Star Wars prequels, it's a sequel. I think we're safe.

Also when Tenzin goes red in the face so does his arrow, lol.

Also Korra's shoulders (aside from being made of awesome) when she leaves the office she's squaring off, making herself look bigger, but when she's talking with Tenzin she's got a unconfident slouch. Body language, Korra speaks it.

Nah, the Lion Turtle's back was a hexagon.



I'll always remember that because I considered it the most awkward line in the finale.

I see the bullheaded snakes, personally. No wings to make them dragons.

Somehow the design's style makes me think of Harry Potter video games...

That means the season finale will have giant mecha. And lasers.

...I'm pretty sure I had a dream about this a while ago.

I'm not sure if someone mentioned this or not, but I loved how they dodged the question of Zuko's mother again.

Hi Shion! Welcome to ASN!
Yes it was pretty funny how they dodged the question. At this point I'm not sure if I even want to know. I like being trolled about this Smiley I think it's Stockholm Syndrome...

No.

And I'm merging this with the "Interesting things noticed in Korra Spoilers" thread since I don't think it warrants its own topic.

Exactly what I thought when I saw that blurry riding on Naga video awhile ago. She isn't anywhere near as badass as Jun though...yet. I still think she is a lion in lambs clothing though. Way too sweet and conveniently rich. There is something fishy there...

Did everyone see Bolin's gorilla impression when he hunched his shoulders? lol I think this will create tension because if Korra doesn't quit Tarrlock's task force, she's not gonna be ready for the tournament. I assume this is why Mako and Korra are annoyed with each other in later episodes.
