I watched this on the livestream. So glad they showed it. Good quality and I could hardly hear the audience too.

But OMFG TOPH! This episode hit me right in the feels. The flashbacks :( Can't wait for next week.

Excuse me while I go running around the neighborhood screaming at this episode. Naked.

Nah I'm kidding, but holy crap this was an awesome episode! I'll be posting a vlog of the episode once my hair dries, heh.

I KNOW! I watched this first at comicon (the livestream) and when Toph said something about knowing Korra from a past life, I'm like "OMG! She's gonna call Korra Twinkletoes!" Suuuuure enough! I hope Toph comes back to Republic City with Korra so she can see Lin. And Maybe Korra will tell her that Lin and Su made up (after fighting things out) AND maybe she tells Korra who Lin and Su's fathers are cause IT'S FRIGGIN KILLING ME!

*Coughs* sorry. :P

But I just wanna give Korra a hug!

OH! And one last thing, I swear. That picture of Aang spinning whatever the hell it was and that grin on his face. That was the best part in my opinion!

I'm pretty sure they were the seaweed rolls. XD I thought they were marbles at first, but there's only two, I think. But yes, that part was hilarious! I think the entire audience started clapping when that scene played. Or maybe it was just me and/or the people in my section. XD

Yeah, that was awesome. What I really liked about the livestreaming is that I didn't really hear too much of the audience reactions. When they showed Toph at the end, I could vaguely hear cheering, but not too much else.

Anyway, just watched the episode for the third time. Still hurts me in the feels. And my heart makes weird noises when Toph shows up. Dang, her hair's freakishly long in the back. I can't wait to see more Korra/Toph interaction!

Tears were shed at Korra's rehabilitation scene with Naga. That hit right at home.
<< Post Merge: October 10, 2014, 10:43:37 PM >>


I didn't mean to imply she was crippled permanently, I meant it as it being more of a giant cluster of every possible thing that could weigh down on Korra psychologically. Korra is incredibly active and headstrong. So not only is she feeling like her sense of purpose is withering away, she also is unable to really move at the exact same time. We've seen her bending in frustration before, but she can't even do that. All she can really do is sit there with her thoughts, and they're piling up on her back while she's near completely unable to shrug them off. She can't blow off any steam by bending at a post, she can't take a stroll around town, she can't even bring up the energy to speak all that much. Emotional and physical are more closely linked than people seem to think, and when a person is in a single place for a long time unable to really move around that can have an additional effect on their psyche. Not only does she feel useless as an Avatar, she also doesn't have freedom of mobility. That has adverse effects on people, believe me, I know.

Zaheer put Korra in possibly the worst position of her life, because outside of Asami's support, Korra has practically nothing to do to stave off emotional decay. She's not only trapped in her mind but her body as well, and when you're trapped in your body, your mind has the ability to go over every single thing wrong with your life without much distraction, and that's a terrible place for Korra to be right now.

I'm not saying Korra's physical condition is the cause of her emotional state, but what I am saying is that it does not help at all.

This episode hurt so bad.

As I have been saying, Korra's reason for being unable to walk indeed -was- from her mental trauma's. Poor,poor girl..

That said, I loved this episode soooo much! Funnily enough I also adored the Zuko Alone episode. Guess the episode title was a clear sign the episode was gonna rock to start with haha.

The things Korra went through in the last 3 years were very hard to watch. I felt for her so much throughout the episode, the only thing that made things better were Toph's epicness at the end. Can't wait to see more of her next week!

ALSO AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO LAUGHED OUT LOUD AT AANG'S PICTURE? IT WAS SO MUCH LIKE AANG TO DO THE 'MARBLE' ROLL WITH THE FOOD I CAN'T EVEN

This episode....oh gosh, this episode killed me.

It started when I saw the title. Korra Alone, I immediately went to Zuko Alone and I was so excited. I feel like Bryke is going to take us back to ATLA, back to the roots of the show. Instead of new and better bad guys, show Korra's growth. Every single one of the previous avatars have had to travel to find themselves and their own, individual avatar spirit. Wan, Koshi, Roku, Aang. Korra was the only one who hadn't. She's been sheltered and watched over. Her masters have been brought to her and she never had to be on her own. This will be extremely good for her. She can learn and grow like her predecessors. Toph knows. Even Tenzin knew. She's got to find her own way, and this is the only way its possible.

I....totally called the ending. Like ten minutes in, I called the ending and I was like, "I am going to be soooooooooo mad when that happens." When it did, I died laughing. So far, I am seriously loving this season. It promises to be amazing and hopefully answers a lot more of our questions about the past (I want to know more about Sokka's, Toph's and Zuko's life. But especially Sokka. We know next to nothing about it yet!) and I hope it answers our questions about where the series and Korra will be heading when it ends. I'm super excited and hope for the best.

And seriously, the best part of the episode (Besides Toph's Twinkletoes) was Aang's air trick picture. Oh god his face was priceless!!!! He was still that funny little air nomad kid who wanted to go penguin sledding deep inside. It makes me extremely happy for that.

I can't WAIT for next week...even though I won't be able to watch it until like two weeks from now XP it is just so great!
