I’ve only seen the raws so I have very little idea what’s going on BUT—
MY OTP IS NEXT TO EACH OTHER SCREAMS
WHEN’S THE WEDDING?
like….. ….. idk man. idk. this was the weirdest most random shit ever. ???? i can’t be only one that think this ????
You most definitely aren’t the only one.
I just… can’t even begin to wrap my head around the reasoning behind any and all of Bolin’s actions this season. It’s just… mind-boggling to me how anyone thinks of such a plotline for him in the first place and then decides that it’s an awesome idea to stick with to the final result.
SO SHE STARTED A NEW AVATAR CYCLE
She is the last avatar and the first.
THERE’S NO MORE ROOM FOR STATUES. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW.
It was all planned. OMG.
SO I WAS ACTUALLY THINKING ABOUT THIS SINCE I SAW THIS SCENE? LIKE, IT ALWAYS BUGGED ME THAT THE SPIRAL WAS SO CLOSE TO AN END.
THIS ACTUALLY MAKES A BUNCH OF SENSE. LIKE, HOLY SHIT.
have u accepted jinora as ur lord and savior
Okay I’m going to try and translate my feelings into something coherent.
It broke my heart to see the connection with the past Avatars severed. I think a part of me died inside when I saw Vaatu tear away Korra’s connection to my baby Aang. AANG.
But this is so important to Korra’s character development. In fact it had to happen.
Because all her life Korra defined herself as being the Avatar, and all she could see in herself was disappointment for not being able to live up to her past lives’ legacies.
But in the finale it was HER spirit that held the power, not Raava’s. It was HER spirit that won the battle, not the spirits or wisdom of the past Avatars. She made an unprecedented decision at the end to leave the portals open. She is her own person. She isn’t just Korra, the Avatar after Aang, she’s Korra, a spiritual leader and strong young woman. She finally connected to her inner spirit and found herself.
She’s independent. She’s strong.
The past does not define her.
Aang’s statue being torn down was a necessary symbolic gesture. As much as it pains me to say this, this series isn’t about Aang. It’s about Korra.
Baby I’m so proud of you.
I agree…but I still think that the scene of Raava’s execution was probably the most emotionally traumatizing thing I’ve ever seen.
who else had a mini heart attack bc they thought that jinora might not have been able to return to the real world bc i legit thought she had sacrificed herself or something like that
I can’t stop replaying this over and over and laughing
OMG THAT’S GREY DELISLE?
IT’S THE FRIENDLY MUSHROOM!
OH MY GOSH.
I don’t understand why she can reconnect and fuse with Raava, but lose the connection with her past lives. Raava never died.
But the past lives did, I guess? The connection was made anew; just as Wan was the endpoint for Korra, now Korra is the endpoint for everyWAN else. We didn’t see Wan’s past lives; so now we won’t see Korra’s.
AND I WILL NEVER BE OKAY.
..Swan.. we didn’t see Wan’s past lives because Wan was the FIRST AVATAR. THERE WAS NO PAST AVATAR LIVES TO LOOK AT.
Not how reincarnation works, I’m afraid. Wan DID have past lives. Again, Raava doesn’t say “Now you will be reincarnated into a new life”; she said that she would be with him in all the rest of his lives, as if this was perfectly natural for anyone. So there was Po and Bradley and Lala and Tinky-Winky and Clarence and whatever other names before Wan, but Wan was the first Avatar. Then they went through a hundred lifetimes together with Raava…but then they reset with Korra. So Korra marked the end of the Avatar line, but then, things restarted. So she still has Aang and the others as her past lives—that’s unchanged. She’s just not going to be able to communicate with them, because the Avatar cycle has restarted.
so you’re saying everyone is in a constant loop of reincarnation here. And Raava just leaves the Avatar’s body and goes into a different baby when her past Avatar host body dies?
So, the cycle isn’t broken? It’s just started over again? Like Korra is the first Avatar 2.0?
The cycle is broken from what I understand. It’s a new Avatar cycle 2.0
what I kind of got from it was that Raava getting all beat up put her at her weakest to where she absorbed into Vaatu, so it severed her connection to Korra. When Jinora came in, she strengthened Raava enough for her to be recognizable to Korra who then pulled her out and re-fused with her, but her connection with her past lives was completely lost.
that’s how I reason anyway.
Jinora seems to be sensitive to the Cosmic Energy… I mean, right away she was able to tell that something had happened to Raava, and then she disappears somewhere only to pop up Jesus style and save the day. Maybe she’s a new SOMETHING, kind of like how the avatar came about.
I wasn’t just talking about black vs white, though? And I wasn’t saying the lack of diversity was a bad thing. I was just “lol”ing because they called it diverse, when it isn’t. It’s fine if it’s not, but don’t say it is something that it isn’t, you know? That was it.
As for everyone else dying out, I think that’s problematic to think because it’s like saying other cultures aren’t smart enough. ALSO, SPOILERS, but the walls weren’t built by man! They were stumbled upon and they hid behind them! It’s my firm headcanon that these walls were all over the world, and there are pockets of people hiding behind them.
Shit almost got real…
