So Lin didn't seem to be too happy about Tenzin not moving to the South Pole.

I wonder what's going on there...

Taking from the description off the press site, I think Lin and her men might be a little bit too eager towards the idea of a police state...

The old woman looks like Ellie from UP:


Is it bad that I considered that one episode better than the entire first season of ATLA? (There were a few good episodes like the Deserter, Blue Spirit, but the first season didn't get me hooked.)

OH MAH GAWD THAT WAS AWESOME

That was legal, right? >.>

My favorite lines:
"What happened to Zuko's mom?"
"That doesn't even make sense!"
"Why don't you come and find out."
"We must accelerate our plans.
"DON'T BRING MY MOTHER INTO THIS!"
And basically everything Lin Beifong said. New favorite character? I think yes.

When Tenzin and family arrive at the South Pole, Jinora walks up to Katara and says something like "Gran Gran! I just finished reading about all your old adventures, it was wonderful! But I've been dying to ask you, what happened to Zuko's mom?" then Katara replies "It's a magnificent story--" and gets interrupted by Ikki.

(paraphrasing, can't remember the exact words)

^Jinora is reading a book about the adventures of the Gaang and the book didn't explain what had happened to Zuko's mom. So she asked Katara and Katara replied it was an interesting story and as she was about to say what happened, Ikki cut her off.

I love Lin, too. Her VA is perfect.

When Korra was talking to Lin, did she say those gangsters were going to kill the man? I couldn't understand what she said there because it was really quick.

I think it's sweet that Bryan's name appears first on the opening title. It's as though Mike is saying "This time, you get top billing."

And I am super glad I didn't watch any of the individually leaked clips, or follow the information as it became available. I literally had no expectations going into this show because I knew almost nothing about it.

I felt it was the opposite. Korra got owned in that debate.

I love Lin's voice, and Amon's and Ikki's and Meelo's and Pema's AND AND ASJKDBALUB;NAPDUBA !!

Still kinda feel 'eh' that Katara and Aang named their other kids Bumi and Kya, but from the looks of it they may be benders as well !

I felt it was the opposite. Korra got owned in that debate.

It wasn't that she got owned, it was more like the guy completely misrepresents the seriousness that is the Equalists. I thought the scene was just dumb in general.

Also, crack theory: Amon is Sokka's son.

Edit: Here's why.

Chi blocking - Equalists use chi blocking techniques to immobilize benders. As far we know the only people who know those techniques are Ty Lee and the Kyoshi Warriors (who learned them). Unless the warriors opened up some school for everyone in the world, one can only assume it was a closed school of the arts.

In other words, the only person that could possibly start up an organization of people who learn the secret art of chi blocking has to be someone who grew up in a Kyoshi warrior environment. Having the son of a Kyoshi warrior would be too boring and unappealing.

On the other hand, having someone like the son of Sokka, who grew to respect benders and understand the differences between him and benders, would be a lot more impactful and make the audience more prone to sympathize with his cause.

The crier was bad, but yes, Korra was worse. Seems, when it comes to public speaking she is like Sokka. Or Bryke. xD

I think Korra pretty much got owned in that debate as well, but considering she hasn't had much contact with the outside world, isn't surprising it was gonna happen.

Anywho, I made a few reaction gifs, and this seems like the only place to share them, as Tumblr's anti-episode at the moment and I kind of want to hold back on that, so I'm going to share with you guys. Smiley You're free to save/use, but if you're going to use them on Tumblr, wait until the first episode has aired either through Korra Nation or on Nick, please.

Ohhhh...
Oh oh oh...

Guys...I dunno if I'm gonna watch it. I've been so strong these past weeks, but reading through this thread, the episode is obviously so amazing that I JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Then Sifu Kisu's post on Tumblr brought me back a bit, and I was like "naw, it's okay to wait..."

THEN I CAME BACK TO THIS THREAD and I'm like "WHAT DO I DO."

This is one tough decision. Undecided

But the quotes are so hilarious. So funny. Cheesy

So, was anyone else very amused by the fact that Tenzin's bison was named Oogi? I thought for sure I misheard, but I checked the credits, and it is indeed Oogi.

Did Uncle Sokka name him/her?
