Book4 is called balance and...

It didn't balance the other elements at all :c (also sorry for not coming on in a while)
Buff the other elements to match the overpowered bloodbending!!!

For me i would buff earthbending:

I would call it:  The Way Of The Medusa
Some evil earthbender found out he could turn the skin of living creatures to stone (although they would still be alive)

The title of the season was more about creating balance in the world than making the power of the elements on equal footing. However, I'd wager they actually did pull that off as well.

Waterbending has bloodbending that can work at any time in the moon's cycle, to the point it can take a person's bending away.

Airbending has shown it's capable of being used as a method of asphyxiation by removing the oxygen from a person's lungs.

Firebending has lightning and can also create explosive soundwaves using a third eye.

Earthbending has now been shown to possess the ability to create and control lava as well as metal.

That's pretty even.

What made you think the Book name had anything to do with balancing the elements? I mean season 3 was called Spirits but it certainly had nothing to do with bending spirits, instead the whole plot was about Spirits hence the name. Same with Book 4 Balance.

And great points there, Av.

In fact the previous seasons based around the elements were also focused around it's Nation because they spent a lot of time either in that Nation or learning about it.

Also, I think it has a lot to do with Korra's balance as a person, she overcame mental illness and physical disability and she grew because of it. She became balanced in her own self mentally, physically, her spirituality and she especially grew in her role as the avatar I think she finally understood that being the avatar is a part of her, but it's not all of her.

I will add that the balance theme has many aspects - Korra, between the elements and Kuvira's lack of it. But also between the new technological world as well as bending and this is where it ties in with book one. Effectively we should've known Korrasami was going to happen from the start of the book because it's called Balance for a reason - Korra and Asami literally represent two sides of a changing society. By showing them together you really see how two very different things can coexist and balance.
