The first episode of Book 4 has been released on Amazon. Please discuss about the episode in this thread instead.



Quote
Someone should make a thread about the name of the second book.

Ask and ye shall recieve.

So we all know that Book one of TLoK is called Air.
What would Book 2 be titled? All we have is speculation at this point.

Thoughts?


Book Titles:
Book 2 is called Spirits and the run of that book has recently ended
Book 3 will be titled "Change" and the show has recently ended
Book 4 will be called "Balance" but plot is still currently unknown.

Very possible. I actually can't imagine anything else.

I mean, unless Bei Fong decides she needs to know Metalbending..

Just in time. xD

Okay. So. We know that Book 1 is titled Air. And we also know that there are two seasons.

I made a guess somewhere, I don't remember, that Book 2 will be called "Spirit" as a reference to the fact that Korra has not learned much about the spiritual aspect of being the Avatar.

Here's my theory --

During the finale, or sometime during the second season, Korra loses her bending and her contact to the Spirit World for a long time (possibly several episodes). During the time without her bending, she's forced to (a) learn more about how the Equalist perspective, (b) figure out how to fix the problem without just beating people to a pulp, and (c) regain contact with the Avatar Spirit somehow (which, coincidentally means she'll need to learn about spirituality in general). During season 2, I can also see her getting into deeper contact with the past Avatars and the nature of bending itself -- not by simply looking within herself -- but by actual research in libraries and stuff. This will help in her reconnecting to her predecessors and ultimately the Avatar Spirit, I think. (And didn't Mike and Bryan mention lemurs making an appearance in the second season? This leads me to believe that Korra and her crew travel.) This will also reveal to the audience more about the nature of bending, Avatars, the Spirit World in general, and where it all came from in the first place, and bring the series full circle.

...I'm calling it.

I like Balance! But I think Spirit is the more plausable one. Many people are saying the same thing.

How about love? The whole season will focus on Korra and Mako LOL, jk Tongue

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I don't think I would enjoy it much if the second book was called Spirit. I mean, what kind of lame power is heart anyway? Whoops, wrong reference. Tongue

Though thinking about it, it seems very likely. I'm sad though, that they can't go through the whole cycle again. Cry

... I actually love the idea of calling it water again. That reinforces the idea of the cycle constantly going on!

Also, when we get another show with an Earth Avatar, it would be so easy to start it off as Book I : Earth. So easy.


If they don't continue the cycle though, I really think Balance makes sense. It summarizes the spiritual aspect of being an Avatar, the idea of why the United Republic exists, and references the Benders desires as well.

I dunno about the regular board, but I meant here. But, uh, nevermind.

Book 2: Avatar State?

Spirit seems likely.

In the last series, the names of the books were specifically said to be referencing the element that Aang was to be learning, so if they keep with that theme, what else does Korra have to learn/master?

The Avatar State. This could be its own thing, but it definitely ties in pretty well with the spiritual stuff (Though not the Spirit World specifically, more like Pathik and Hue's bag of tricks-- though it wouldn't be hard for them to tie those threads together).

Energybending. You could almost call it "Energy," though that sounds weird. "Origin" sounds neat, but it breaks the "mastering" rule. It's just spiritual enough that you could almost call the book "Spirit," but we know the Lion Turtle isn't a spirit, and we don't know if energybending is more than marginally more spiritual than any other type-- especially considering that other types are already pretty spiritual. Either way, if they go this route, you could switch out Aang for the first Avatar as Korra's mentor (for the season, anyway) and really get into that era that the Lion Turtle mentioned.

The next two seem pretty unlikely, but:

Maybe, in light of the Equalists' points, Korra decides to be the most well-rounded Avatar ever, and picks up some nonbending arts. Which, to me, leaves us with two options:

Weapons (or some variant). I doubt this will be the case.

Chi-blocking (Antibending, or whatever sounds like the best title to go with this concept). Especially works if the villains of the second season are benders. Though this could very well tie in to my second idea, as energybending (or the only use we've seen of it, anyway) is kind of the ultimate form of antibending.

That's all I can come up with with the information currently available. I do think Spirit is by far the most likely name.

I'd say it deserves it's own thread. You can make another one for speculation on plotlines if you like.

I do agree that Spirit is the most likely name, but man, would "Book 2: Anti" sound cool! Cheesy

I was about to say Energybending or something but Jimothy beat me to it Tongue Hmm...must think of another epic name...

Meh, can't think of anything. I need to go to sleep now. Good night forum!

Assuming there even is a second book, I doubt it would be called spirit. The spiritual side of bending is likely to be explored in this book, which is why she's meeting with Tenzin now, AKA Mr. Spiritual. So I don't see why the next one would be called spirit when it's probably going to be a major theme in this book.

I dunno, maybe we'll come across a fifth element they can use Tongue Which reminds me...will Korra learn how to metal bend?

Well, it says Book 1: Air. And there is a second season in the works.

Devoting a whole book to spiritual stuff would be a good way to keep Mr. Spiritual in the mix after Korra's mastered air.
