Bloodbending was an ingenious move and the fact that there was actually another waterbender from Katara's tribe caught me completely offguard. Much like Azula however, her insanity made me feel for her, not find her crazy. I felt terrible for her, having to watch her tribe decimate in front of her own eyes and spend the majority of her life confined in a cage and then walk freely after decades of imprisonment, still being imprisoned in a way, forced to live amongst people whom she hated. I felt terrible for Hama, especially at the end when she just went back to prison, which had driven her to insanity in the first place Sad I felt almost as bad for Katara, since she was also a waterbender from Hama's tribe and had to listen to the tale of the horrendous genocide of her civilization and still make the right choice, despite an old master from her own tribe teaching her her own techniques and mothering her. The way that Hama actually played grandmother for the Gaang and nurtured Katara until the full moon was heartfelt, as were Katara's emotions and Hama's whole story  Cry

I don't like how Kitara learned Bloodbending within a few minutes. I mean, she's not a prodigy or anything, so does that mean if another waterbender saw her bloodbending would they learn just as fast?

And what is happening with Zuko, Iroh and gang?! I miss them ;_;

But really, this episode was as creepy as they were saying. I mean the whole, "People are under the mountain screaming!" scenario freaked me out.
I don't agree. She most certainly is a prodigy. She reached mastery of waterbending faster than Azula- the oh so renowned prodigy- reached mastery of firebending or Toph did of earthbending. She's a prodigy, through and through. Plus, she handed an old master her rear end at her own game (Hama at bloodbending).

Double post merged. ~ Icy

The thing with Katara was that she seemed to become a master so unexpectedly. Masters typically tend to have a history, or bloodline, for their advanced skills. But not Katara. It kinda left me wondering too.

Katara is known to have trained with Waterbending all her life. She probably made her own moves and techniques, even before could bend it properly. Once she learned how to control water from Pakku, it was a matter of creativity for her to apply all the experience she gained from learning it by herself...

I think this episode was originally going to be called "The Dark Side of the Moon". I can see why. I wish Hama would've showed up in "The Southern Raiders".

She had already been taken away by then.

I know she was taken away. I meant they could have found some way to incorporate her into the story. Whether in her prison revealing something crucial about the raids, or fighting Katara and Zuko.

Then again, I do realize that Hama being involved would slow down the plot and would require "The Southern Raiders" to be a 2-parter. Heck, this episode should have been a 2-parter. Eliminate "The Painted Lady" or "Nightmares and Daydreams" and there you go.

I just don't see how Hama being involved in TSR would serve any purpose. I mean, I guess if you liked her it'd be nice to see her again but otherwise what would be the point?

She could have been encouraging Katara to kill her enemy, and then her journey to the dark side would be complete!

I wish there was a scene where we could see the spirit of Mimi.

This was one of my all time favorite episodes of the series. Everything worked: the setting, the characters, and si on. Hama was a creepy, if not tragic villain, sure she is a female version of Jet, but her level of disturbing behavior made her surprisingly fresh.  I also like how the original series used fictional powers to tell a deeper story. I complained in the past about how Korra treats bloodbending, but here, I was invested. The rest of the gang took a backseat this episode, but I didn't mind. And as usual, the action was top notch.
