I really liked the episode, seeing how things changed over the years. I liked Kuvira in the finale. Not so much now. Prince Wu... yeah, not too crazy about him either.

BOLIN! Stop being an ass and BEG for Opal's forgiveness! I don't care what it takes! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T LOSE HER! *Coughs* Erm... sorry... :P

And Bataar Jr and Kuvira engaged... Yyyyeah. I'm sure that's gonna happen...

But the end! The whole episode I'm like "WHERE'S KORRA?!?!?" Then we see her getting her ass kicked (Korra! What happened to you bby? Wait. Don't answer that. I know) and that dude saying she kinda reminds him of the Avatar and wonders what happened to her and she's like "I wouldn't know" AND IT FRIGGIN ENDS RIGHT THERE!! *sobs* KOOOOORRRRRRRAAAAAA!

I hope we see more of her next WEEK'S episode. Ugh. Why do we have to wait a WEEK? Stupid one episode premiere...

Also, was it just the lighting, or does Tonraq have a hell of a lotta grey hair? He aged...

One last thing, poor Mako. Having to deal with Prince Wu.

Someone should talk to Mike about writing these killer episodes. XD I dunno how I'm going to function for the rest of the day after that ending. But man, what a great first episode!

The writing and dialogue in this episode were fantastic. There were no "trying too hard to be funny" moments with Bolin and the moments with spoiled rich prince Wu didn't seem forced and genuinely made me giggle. I also liked how the passage of time was shown and not just told... all the characters just seem a bit more wise and grounded through their interactions.
As for Kuvira, man... she's cold as ice. Zelda Williams is doing an amazing job with the voice acting, also. I'm really excited to see where her character arc goes. That scene with her and the governor gave me chills - her ability to manipulate is on key or greater than even what we saw with Amon. and whats worse is what is at stake: food and security for citizens.
Bravo, Brychael. This was a great episode!

This was an interesting episode:) I can't believe someone is conquering the Earth Kingdom.

Also,I wonder why Korra is pretending to not be the Avatar.

What I think it cause Korra's been gone three years recovering. She hasn't really been doing much and maybe she doesn't feel like she's a good Avatar. Doesn't wanna draw attention to herself. I think that's why she cut her hair and has new clothes. Wants to travel the world without people like "OMG! Avatar Korra!"

Probably still in the Fire Nation. Maybe we'll see her during Wu's coronation.

Urgh, I need more! That surely wasn't enough Korra for one day, especially considering she was barely in it.

Some tension with Opal and Bolin's relationship. I like where this is going. It should give them both some good development.

And I agree with you, Autumn. Korra's laying low probably because she's not feeling very Avatar worthy and wants to escape that identity.

That's what I'm hoping for! I'm pretty single-minded this way.

I'm really excited to see where the storyline with Kuvira goes too! I'm also really curious to see what Su thinks of this. It seems like only the conquered EK leaders know what Kuvira really does and the rest of the world sees her as a Great Uniter. Based on today's episode, it seems as if Kuvira wouldn't be pleased with having  Wu take the throne.

This episode was great, and definitely keeping in the darker themes that we got from last season. I was really hoping that we'd get to dive further into Bolin's motives for being with Kuvira. I get the feeling it's not very black and white, like he's going to have a lot of depth this season, but it makes me wonder if he sees the darker sides of Kuvira and what she is doing, or if he just sees the good sides (a lot like he did with Varrick at first). Its definitely a thought.

I love seeing how the main cast has changed and evolved. Of course there are the big changes like the changes in the kids (who are adorable!) but you could tell that Bolin, Mako, and Asami have changed too. I think this will be a great season and I'm super excited to be watching it!

Meelo the man was great lol. I'm lovin what I see so far! Though I agree not nearly enough korra for one day. I actually like where korra is right now, though we weren't shown much. Seems relatable though. Kuvira is definitely an interesting character, I can't wait to see how her story unfolds.

I think even if he saw Kuvira's dark side, there's not much he can do without risking his job. Or maybe he really thinks he's helping people and has found his calling, like Kai said. Maybe Kuvira just kept him around as part of the act. There's so many possibilities! I'm wondering how Bolin got the job in the first place; was it something he wanted to do or did Su perhaps put him up to it, hoping to have someone keep her updated on Kuvira's dealings and stuff, or did Kuvira just ask him for help, fully intending to reuinte the Earth Kingdom and then go power hungry? XD

I did a vlog of my thoughts on this episode. I've never done a vlog, so bear with me here. I just give some basic thoughts on the episode.

I was wondering how they are going to outdo last season, and if this episode was any indicator of what's to come... I'm going to be an emotional wreck again.

I'm still not sure how they'll do it. I just know they'll do it though and it'll successfully rip the fandom to pieces I'm sure.

To be perfectly honest, I'm still not ready for it. I haven't recovered from last season yet!
