Well, that was a doozy! Everyone was right when they assumed Kuvira would sacrifice Baatar if she had to. I just don't know why he was so surprised by that. XD Seemed more like she was married to her "work" than engaged to him.

Wow! What an episode! We get to see Kai, the Wolfbats (though I think someone's missing), Gommu, and Dante Basco Iroh!

The Varrick and Zhu Li (with an awesome new outfit and hairstyle) reunion! (OMG VARRICK! YOU'RE SUCH AN IDIOT! KISS HER ALREADY! DO THE THING!)

If Bataar Jr survived the blast, I don't think he'll like Kuvira all that much anymore... Does anyone think someone died? I sure hope not. AND WE HAVE TO WAIT A FRIGGIN WEEK! How the hell am I gonna survive my 11-7:30 shift?! *Sobs*

And on that day, humanity recieved a grim reminder.

That reveal of the mech was easily one of the biggest "Oh s**t" moments in the entire show.

Firing at Korra and the krew even though they had Baatar Jr. XD There were a lot of theories floating around on tumblr about his sacrifice being Kuvira's gambit, and it looks like that's what happened.

Holy giant mecha that was awesome!!When that thing came out I was so surprised but then I spazzed a little too much as a huge mecha fan. I so need to enlist Bryke's help when I decide to create my own mecha show.

Just finished watching and OMG, what do we have here?!?!? A giant Mecha Tank?!? Firing the Avatar (okay, for her and the rest, Kuvira couldn't care less), and Baatar Jr?!?!? See, people?! That's why cursing Baatar when he said "I love you, Kuvira"!! Why would you even say that?!? I hope that once they face each other again (oh, how much I'd like to see him slapping Kuvira while she's at Korra's mercy after some major butt-kicking fight), he realizes that she's a true MONSTER!!! See, man? That's your family, aiming right at you with a super-powerful spirit weapon!!
And let's not forget that Varrick/Zhu Li moment!Come on, Varrick, you know you like her, don't let her down like that!! But I guess hope we'll see them together in the last episode.

And yes, right after that much astonishment, we have to wait one whole week (that's gonna be super-slow) for the last episodes...

Just watched it! Ooooh... It was good.. That mecha tank is HUGE! Kuvira is insane.... Why would you do that to Baatar Jr? Unless, it was unrequited love... I feel bad for the dude.... She was just using him... Altogether, great ep! :D

She probably tricked him into falling in love with her. So what he feels might not be real love at all, he just thinks it is.

I think Kuvira just made her first mistake.  Kinda glad, too.  This "villain's always one step ahead" thing has gotten very old in this series.

And good gravy, a freakin' Jägermech.  There goes the "transport big gun by rails" theory.

Although its firing stance kinda reminds me of Buzz Lightyear.  XD

what did I just watch

Kuvira has lost her frickin mind.

They're gonna need to take that mecha thing down the way the Gaang took down the Drill. From the inside. Get in there and start ripping it apart at the joints or something. I doubt they're gonna be able to blow it up

That would be really cool if they could take it down from the inside, but that'd be tricky.

I have to say, though, I really like the design of the mecha tank and the way it moves and is controlled.

Just insert one Meelo.  Between his battle rage and his gas attack, Kuvira won't know what hit her.  XD  For that matter, how about Korra taking her off her strike team to pick up Bataar Jr. for that same reason?  Geez.

For that matter (again), how about Korra finding a way to really threaten Bataar Jr. by using her head?  Admittedly it didn't work because Kuvira blew up the place, but I still like her doing that.

Me too! I loved that scene! And oh gosh, unleashing Meel on on Kuvira might just do her in. XD

You know, I wonder if Korra might confront Kuvira's spirit-vine gun with something along the lines of what Po did at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2--you know, somehow bend and redirect the energy back at Kuvira?  I know it's a stretch, as Korra would have to learn how to do that in the space of two episodes.

Yeah. Or maybe use her giant blue spirit form to take Kuvira down. I'd love to see the look on Kuvira's face if that happened!

Okay... WOW!!
Let's start from the begining. The Colossus first shot... My! We have seen deaths in both Atla and Lok, and many creepy-scary stuff. But this?! This is what shocked me more than anything. Seeing those guards who were just standing there a second earlier, fall as the first victims of this monstrous weapon. In a split second! 0.0

I don't think I understand Kuvira... At first I thought; 'Okay, she's a cold-hearted tyrant, she won't care for Bataar, she might not even love him truly'.  But she pauses, and says: "No! I love you Bataar!", and I'm thinking maybe she will step back, and just then, she fires at him!!!! What? Why? Who? When? She sacrifises her dreams, her "love"... in the name of her cause! Unity...
I wonder what poor Bataar has to say to all this.

Aw, and the Zhurrick moment! :)
Awwwww-what? Varrick? You never change?! I thought...
I'm hoping he has some real feelings inside.

One week... for this finale... is...IMPOSSIBLE!!
But I'll survive! :P
