Does anyone besides me like this episode more than the 'The Last Stand'? I love action and it seems that everyone went all out throughout the episode, well besides Mako who seems to be forgotten... The actual finale was a little underwhelming to me and the only worthy bending scenes were Mako's dual lightning and stopping the spirit beam. I didn't expwct anyone to die and Hiroshi slapped me out of my seat.
There were still some things that could've been done better in this episode though...
-Have Mako remember that he can bend? He could've been blinding the Colossus with giant fire streams, come on man, offer some assistance.
Why take a fighting stance if you're just gonna watch? I seriously got a burst of happiness seeing this part for the first time and then I died once he ran into a building to silently observe
-Stop letting Korra steal all of the spotlight! Everybender should've been bending equivalently but nooo, everyone else forgot they were better earth/airbenders:
Lin was shown bending more than Korra but didn't utilize it this episode. Bolin literally held up a rooftop and sliced a building and it bugged me a little.
Tenzin should've been shown doing this, reducing him to a tiny airstream with the rest of the random airbenders was wrong.
- The United Forces should've battled against the Earth Empire. The giant mech that could blow you to oblivion was no where in sight, just attack the remaining soldiers.
-More assistance. If the group of water and firebenders that Bolin helped returned to help or even the Fire Nation for that matter, that would've been nice. Zuko on his dragon helping the airbenders would be noice!
Overall I gave this episode a 9 and it's still my favorite of all in book 4. I loved seeing the airbenders tossing around the Colossus and the Badger Moles. This episode got more hype from me than the final episode.
