HOLY-

How the heck did Kuvira hide that HUGE GIANT ROBOT from any of our heroes?

I really doubt that Korra would go spirit giant and battle it out Pacific rim, but it's a fun thought.

Also...Lin......literally everybody she loves is caught in that explosion. and he face was like, no emotion, and she was like "I'm gonna go check for survivors."

First of all, my reaction to the mech: "...Ohhhhh crap."  I'd like to go through the season again just to make sure that there weren't any foreshadowing moments, because that was a genuine surprise right there.

Second of all, I have to say, I disliked Kuvira in different levels throughout this season.  But once she aimed that thing where they were keeping Bataar Jr....Well, let's just say I don't think I ever cursed a show's villain out loud before.  Not even Azula.

This is gonna be one heck of a finale.

Kuvira is Hitler and her empire is nazi Germany. Pretty clear now. This giant mecha was a bit over the top and the canon way to powerful.

Also, it seems like every show is getting more "brutal" the longer it lasts. Back in season one when an airplane was destroyed you saw the parachute every time and now they just blow away an entire castle without any chance that those people survived it.

I agree that the show has gotten more brutal, but at the same time you gotta remember that Tarlokk blew himself and Amon up.

When I first heard "Colossus" in the title of the next episode, I had a feeling that this was going to be some huge mech. I swear, it reminded me of a giant and oversized Megatron.





I unofficially/officially have named it, "Kuviratron"! xD

HOLY-

How the heck did Kuvira hide that HUGE GIANT ROBOT from any of our heroes?

In a Secret Tunnel.  One that ran through the mountain.  :D

First of all, my reaction to the mech: "...Ohhhhh crap."  I'd like to go through the season again just to make sure that there weren't any foreshadowing moments, because that was a genuine surprise right there.

Second of all, I have to say, I disliked Kuvira in different levels throughout this season.  But once she aimed that thing where they were keeping Bataar Jr....Well, let's just say I don't think I ever cursed a show's villain out loud before.  Not even Azula.

This is gonna be one heck of a finale.

In hindsight, I'm not too surprised that she turned the gun on Bataar, Jr., but I was surprised she did it after seeing the expression on her face when she hugged Junior at the beginning of the episode.  She had me fooled.  I honestly felt like he meant something to her at that point.

Me too! It seemed like she took the old saying "no pain, no gain" a little too far. It's possible that she genuinely loves Baatar, but it seems like she's already married to her work (for lack of a better term) so...I wonder how much this wedding really meant to her.

So at first I wanted to "like" your post and then I was like, oh silly Blue, this isn't Facebook.

Then I realized I could give you a yuan. I'm not quite sure what that means, but I did it anyway.

Also: HNNNNNGGG the Zhurrick in this episode! It's going to happen. It's so going to happen. Zhu Li is so boss. She literally wears the pants now.

I can't wait for Friday.

Yes, totally dug the Zhurrick, nice to see Zhu Li standing up for herself, it's the only way he'll eventually notice her as more than just an assistant. Somehow this ship reminds me of a another ship, but I don't remember what.

Zhu Li yelling at Varrick and Bolin's facepalm were so funny. It's as if Varrick is one of those people who is smart enough to comprehend the most complex things, but cannot process anything simple, even if it's spelled out for him. XD

This was a great episode, and I'm so glad that I finally got caught up. But...am I the only one who doesn't feel like this is leading up to a true series finale? Other than the large difference in Korra's personality from season one to now, I still feel like THAT was more of a series finale type lead up than this...I don't know maybe its because I wish there could have been a better, more in depth lead up to Makorra or even just a better relationship between the Krew but I just feel like the entire season is still too spread out I don't FEEL the relationships between the Krew anymore (unlike how we were seriously feeling Gaang feels through the end of season three of AtLA). They don't seem very close to each other and its just all sort of thrown together. Meh, maybe I'll feel better after the finale but still. I'm excited but nervous and not really happy just yet.

EDIT: Also, I feel like if they were going to do such a huge time gap like three years, it should have been when we had more time to adjust to it and get back into things, because this...this just sort of, again, feels REALLY thrown together.

Thanks! I think the Yuan is like a forum reputation thing... (?) I gave one, too. xD

I mentioned about Megatron in the Kuvira's Gambit thread on the ASN forums. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed this. There were a few other comparisons from other shows, but I don't watch those.

The cameo of Tahno stuffing his face with noodles and the part where Zhu Li wants Varrick to "Do The Thing!" but he's still too damn clueless to figure out that she likes him...



LOL!
