Anyone else catch Bryke's trolling in the form of Toph being blunt? The way she so nonchalantly mentioned Lin's father and Katara not getting involved in the Civil War had me giggling like an idiot.
Spread the Katara angle!

YES! I'm a bit conflicted about that, because I love Katara and I want to see her in action like a lot of the fans do too, but the show is called the Legend of Korra for a reason, so...XD

Also, hats off to Zhu Li for standing up to Kuvira...even if it was only briefly. Also, I have no idea what to make of Bataar Jr.'s reaction to Opal being in the village that was going to be destroyed. It seemed like he was concerned, but I have a hard time believing that he'd have given her a hug or expressed some of that concern had he gotten her out of there. It seemed more like he was just concerned because she was family and if he'd gotten a hold of her and/or the rest of his family, they'd be sent back to the re-education camps.

I think Bataar Jr's gonna have second thoughts soon enough. I loved how Opal's like, "I think this is enough to get Bolin out of the pola bear dog house." They're cute together, even if they did have so little screen time.

If he does, I wonder how that will play out. XD I mean, Kuvira did say they were engaged so he'd have to choose between family and is fiancee and given his actions so far, I'm not sure that he'd make the right choice.

So we have a name for Lin's father, Kanta. I wonder why things didn't work out.

Awesome episode by the way.

Wow!! Toph just mentioned some very important info there, so carelessly as if they were mere details...
Lin's father and Katara not getting involved in the Civil Wars huh?
Well we haven't gotten much of the old generation in lok, but even that little, precious, something means...something at least for me! I recall Aunt Wu back in Atla saying that Katara would... pass out in her sleep sometime after her forth grand-child was born. So ever since Rohan was born, I'm with this agony. I hope we don't get to see that happening. Like with Uncle Iroh.
Toph is right; It's time for the new generation to take on. I so loved Toph in every moment of this episode and specially when she said: "You give metalbenders a bad name!" to Kuvira!!!
I think Bolin and Opal are really cute together! :3
Also, I was glad though unsurprised to see Zhu Li had a plan. Loyal to Varrick!! :)
Anyone noticed this super weapon recembles one used in the WWII? Yep! 0.0
Awesome episode btw!! :D

And Toph goes back into her swap life now, I guess, right? Oh well, I'd like to see her again till the finale, but I couldn't imagine her fit more anywhere else but there...

That whole "pass away in your sleep thing" was really just a throw away line, I doubt Aunt Wu was actually reading her fortune at that time.

And she said it would also be after her 3rd Great Grandchild. So. If Aunt Wu was correct, she's still got plenty if time left.

Agreed, if that fortune was actually true, Katara will go past 100 before she dies.

This episode was great all around. Toph is perfect as usual. And I'm glad they got Zhu Li away from Kuvira, I'll bet Varrick will be excited xD

Second that all the way round!  :D

You know, about that... I agree with what Toph said, I feel plenty achy myself right now at 47, but King Bumi was active, in the field, and leading the charge against the Fire Nation in Omashu and Ba Sing Se at over 100.  He certainly didn't just "leave things to the kids".  Albeit he also is one heck of an outlier, too.  :D

Also, about Baatar Jr., I don't know if he's ready to go down Zhu Li's path just yet (and how about that Zhu Li!  Wow!), but I see a clear line in his mind between locking his family up and blowing part of his family away.  I was very glad to see that line, too; he isn't completely dedicated to Kuvira's cause yet.

Well times were different and to be fair, Bumi was a king, he needed to be strong physically. Plus he's crazy so there's that too. I think Toph really just meant that she had her share of adventures and now she wanted to let the younger generation have their own too.

This was a pretty interesting episode:D It was awesome of Zhu Li to actually not be on Kuvira's side and try to have the super weapon blow itself up:D Su's fight with Kuvira was amazing:D Also,Toph's line to Kuvira was just awesome:D

Oh I totally agree with Fenix here. Toph is one badass old lady but she isn't -crazy- the way Bumi was. Bumi was called a mad genius for a good reason :P....

And he was one awesome mad genius. I love how we have two mad genius' in the series both completely different. I mean Varrick is nothing like King Bumi.
