Jinora holding Wan's Tea Pot in the finale as she descended down from the Spirit Lights.

I really REALLY think this was an animation error or just an oversight. They alluded to the importance of the Tea Pot during Iroh's Tea party in the Spirit World and it would have tied up almost all the confusion there was in the finale.

edited: "Came ascended down"...What was I smoking? Undecided

That would have been absolutley perfect. And it would confirm that what Jinora did was collect the fractured peices of Raava and presented them to Vaatunalaq. I thought the scene was beautiful to begin with but adding the teapot would have definitley made it seem less like a Deux Ex Machina and more like a Chekhov's Gun.

I'd add Korra talking with her past lives. Even if it was something like the others are doing something and we cut to Korra sitting all happy in a meditative pose. She blinks out of it and smiles and runs up to Tenzin.

"Yangchen said my approach to airbending isn't that much different from some of her techniques. And Kyoshi approves."

Show that she regrets losing her "selves" not just as her duty but as something she "achieved" through Book 1. She might not be able to manifest as them like Aang with Roku and Kyoshi, but she enjoys their company and loves to chat with them.

I would've added a scene in The Southern Lights where Unalaq teaches Korra how to do his spirit bending, but she can't seem to do it properly. He says that one must channel their positive spiritual energy using water as a catalyst, much the same as healing, and that by doing so you effectively destroy a spirit, but the light that it shatters into is reborn as new life in the form of a light spirit. That way the whole "Go in peace" thing would make sense.

^Oh yes. They should have showcased Unalaq's wisdom more. He should have at first been portrayed as a good man for the later reveal to be more surprising than it ended up being. Unalaq shouldn't have been Ozai-type evil, but well-intentioned, perhaps even slowly driven to the dark side by Vaatu's influence. If such a thing had been their intention, they should have made that clearer. It would also make Korra's decision to leave the portals open a lot more bearable.

I also agree that Korra should have spent more time with her past lives. She was supposed to have connected with them, but no truly personal interactions occurred as with Aang and Roku. There was no real connection and no guidance (apart from warning about Yakone's descendants and granting Korra her Avatar powers). It would also, paradoxically, soothe the reactions to Korra's loss of her connections, because the reactions mostly stem from the need to see TLOK like A:TLA and the denunciation of that was more rooted in rules and the pressure of the past than it was rooted in the internal consistency of TLOK. If the show established its own personal connection with the past Avatars, it would be more in control of the characters and people would see that not as an injustice toward A:TLA but as a tragedy inside the show itself. They wouldn't criticize it and deem it bad for the story, but bad inside the story. But then again, Crossroads of Destiny.

I gave up and asked Sifu.

Maybe if this Noatak guy is real, he is the last Water avatar before Kuruk (and the unmentioned Avatar Sifu likes.)

I bet that unmentioned Avatar was Wan.

It probably doesn't matter as much now, but if Pema's advice in "The Spirit of Competition" was just worded differently it wouldn't have sounded as terrible to a lot of people (it wasn't very good advice anyway, but still). Like maybe instead of "seeing my soulmate spend his life with the wrong woman became too painful" it should've been "seeing Tenzin in a relationship he wasn't happy in became too painful." The latter sounds less possessive and/or presumptuous, or at least it doesn't really demonize Lin at all. And of course if the kiss in that episode never happened I think the relationships among the Krew from then on would have gone very differently.

As for Unalaq, I think a flashback scene of how and when he stumbled upon Vaatu in the first place or how Vaatu's influence might've played into him being such a powerful spiritbender could have made a huge difference.

Somewhere in "Turning the Tides":

Mako: Listen, Asami... the thing is, I have feelings for Korra, I know she has feelings for me, and I can't just go on pretending they don't exist. It wouldn't be fair to anyone, least of all you. I'm really sorry to hurt you like this, you're an amazing woman and you'll find someone for you, someone who loves you like you deserve, but my heart lies with Korra. I hope you understand and I hope we can still be friends.

And just like that, he becomes a likable character!

When Korra returns to RC and asks where Mako is to Bolin and Asami? The scene just skips to them going to free him. Would have at least liked to see Bolin say, "Uh...he's in jail." and then get Korra's reaction to it.

I'd like to have seen a small flashback showing how Unalaq became so heavily involved with spirits.

Also, I wish that they'd hinted at Jinora's ability to see spirits earlier in the show, even if it was just a small line/ moment (like showing Jinora playing with an animal, somebody calls over to her, and it has vanished).

It's not really something that could've been added to last episode as it would've distracted from the plot, but it t would've been really nice and cool to see how Desna and Eska explained to their mother what the hell happened to their father/her husband.

*However*, perhaps somewhere they could have found a way to mention what Mrs. Unalaq thought of her husband and his actions?

Me too, just have her reading up on spirits or she mentions in passing want to visit the spirit world. Just somethin'

I just want proof Eska and Desna's mother is human, we all know Unalaq's spiritsexual.

Eska and Desna will turn out to be the children of the Mother of Faces. And then someone will capture them and harm them, and their half-brother will come rescue them.

Yeah, I wish they had actually shown her at some point (maybe she'll get to appear later). Or at least had her be dead, it would raise less questions.

Actually, it would be kind of interesting if she was dead. She gave birth to the twins, and dies at some point after. So Unalaq goes to the spirit world to try to bring her back, and ends up striking a deal with Vaatu. Though it would be another absent mother/ bad father combo for the series.

Haha!

But seriously, I wish we'd gotten to learn a little more about Unalaq in general. Just why he is the way he is.

I know he was a minor character in the grand scheme of things, but in hindsight I wish we had gotten a little more characterization on the Lieutenant. We know he's completely dedicated to Amon and the Equalists, but why? Couldn't there have been a a short scene or couple of lines explaining the guy's motives? A hint at his past? I mean, Sparkly Sparkly Bush Man has a first name and more detailed back-story for Wan's sake!

^ Seconded. Hell, I think a little more characterization on the Equalists in general would've been great, or at least some indication that they're still active in some capacity. For example, in that first scene with Mako in Book 2 instead of chasing down some Triple Threat Triad members it could've been an Equalist truck.

^ Exactly this. I know Bryke mentioned the remaining Equalists have an "Underground bookstore" but still...Just some sort of clue or cameo that lets us know the Equalists are still around on the show would've been great.

A scene in which Lin arrest some Equalists in their "Underground Bookstores" would be good enough for me.

But the Equalists are evil! Giving them character and motivation would just be confusing the whole issue.

How? Where did people get these crazy ideas Cheesy Because of his line? "I dedicated my life for you." ?

I mean, what motives does he need. He thinks the same as everyone else. He wants equality and Amon was the person who could make his ideals a reality. So he "dedicated" his life for him.

No offense to anyone, but are we simply looking at things the wrong way because Homosexual couple "seems interesting" to us?
