No but seriously, this is not the same girl we saw in season one.

Korra was arrogant, loud, always willing to fight. She was proud to be the Avatar and she wanted everyone to know it. In this first picture we see her testing the Triple Threat Triad. She knows she’s going to win. She always believed she was going to win because well, she’s the mutha freaking Avatar!

But then we have the shot from this last episode. She’s humbled, quiet, tired of fighting. She feels like she’d failed in some way. Here is the birth of a new generation of air nomads willing to take on the responsibilities of bringing the world balance and peace while she recovers yet she looks so broken. Why? Because that’s her job. I think Korra’s biggest character development is her realizing what being the Avatar is all about.

It’s as if her attitude went from, “Fuck yeah I’m the Avatar!” to “Fuck. Yeah, I’m the Avatar.”

We’ve seen this girl grow from an arrogant bender to a humbled Avatar. If you think Korra is the same as she was in season one, you need to reevaluate your life.

Isn’t it funny how the elements that brought them freedom led to their ultimate demise?

Not knowing if his family is alive or dead, Tenzin looks back to see one of the last few remnants of his culture collapse.  Having spent his life trying to preserve everything the Air Nomads represent, he can only watch as the temple succumbs to the same beating his body and soul have felt. His students and love ones could easily be gone, and with it every reason he has to continue living.  At this moment he is completely and utterly alone.    

Hey Bob, was wondering if you could have a go at explaining Korra's situation at the end of Book 3. I'm a little confused in trying to understand the place she's in right now; emotions aren't my strong suit. She won, she survived, and so did everyone important to her, but she looked...well, broken, I guess? I don't quite get it.

The cues they give us are very subtle. I’ll do my best.

I think this is a case of Korra winning but at an immense cost. She is clearly physically debilitated in some way, either from the effects of the poison or the beating she took or both. She underwent what looked like excruciatingly painful torture during which she hallucinated her previous enemies taunting her about her impending obsolescence. While those visions were chemically induced, the fact that they were still products of her own sub-conscious tells us something about what her greatest fears are. We sort of know this already, but Korra’s sense of identity comes from her role as the Avatar. And truthfully, I think the Avatar Spirit is even more important to her than her life. She was willing to give herself up to Zaheer knowing what it might mean, but she really started to freak out when she found out they wanted to end the Avatar Cycle. 

So basically, she has undergone an immense trauma that took everything out of her physically and emotionally. And what’s worse, this is the third major battle she’s had to fight in a year of show time. I can only speculate on some of the feelings she might be dealing with: physical pain, exhaustion, fear that she won’t be able to carry on her mission (and maybe even fear that she’ll never be free of people wanting to kill her?), that she’ll never feel “normal” again. She may also feel detached from everything that’s going on around her and have difficulty connecting to the positive emotions that other people are feeling and want her to feel.

That whole sequence had a “soldier home from war” feel to it. I don’t know if we’re meant to read it as straightforward PTSD, but it appears to be something similar. It isn’t easy to function in regular life once you’ve been through something like that, even if that’s what you are trained for. And that’s especially true if you walk away from it physically scarred, feeling like less than yourself.

I really, really love how the villains die ironically though. In some fashion, it’s all by their own hand in their own element. P’li blows herself up when Su cages her skull in as she’s attacking. Ming-Hua is electrocuted to death when Mako turns her water against her. Ghazan boils alive and is crushed, preferring to die instead of be locked up yet again. They all suffer the consequences of their own actions. Fantastic parallels beautifully executed. Literally.
