had about enough of you, nick
not even the fans are dumb anymore, the the network that hosts the show is fucking dumb
way to objectify one of your only strong female character leads nickWhat is this exactly?
not to mention they call her “future avatar,” and say shit like “besides she can do better - like mako”
The end of an Era.
I can’t believe they did this. This wasn’t necessary for Korra to forge her own path in the new world. Just because these past lives hasn’t lived in modern time doesn’t mean that they are useless or can’t give timeless advice to Korra. Not to mention learn from their mistakes.
At first watch I didn’t realize the significant of this but now watching this scene, it made me cry. Is not just nostalgia. This was the draw for the Avatar and what that means to this franchise. We just learned about the first Avatar which added to the richness of The Avatar but all that seems wasted and undermined with this action just so Korra can have character growth she could easily have had without going down this route.
I guess its kind of appropriate and timely since I ended ties to the LOK series. I’m only going to take Tarrlok, Amon and the Legend of Wan from this series and forget about everything else.
what bothers me is that eventually all of those past lives will be forgotten entirely and their significance to the world they were born to is just gone
Exactly. Would anyone have learned the truth about Wan if there hadn’t been an avatar connection? No, it would’ve been lost and with that, you lose every avatars story in between. It’s just sad the writers felt like they had to erase all these fantastic myths that made Avatar such a beloved series just to make their current protagonist less flat as a character. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.
Maybe they’ll realize what they’ve done and somehow make it all come baack. Raava is the Avatar spirit and as ling she is present it makes sense for her ro remember all of Wan’s past lives and therefore Korra would remember them, too.
It would be a total chlishee and completely unrealistic but I could luve with that if it brought Aang back :)
I think we’re looking at this all wrong. I don’t think removing the memories of past avatars constitutes making Korra an individual. She still values the past avatars. In fact, it was her memories and the things she learned from Wan that helped her realize what kind of person she was. Having them wouldn’t take away from her individuality, and losing them won’t add to it either.
The choice to let Korra lose her connection to her past lives is NOT a statement about her individuality. It’s a mature writing choice. This happened because the spirit of light and balance - the avatar spirit itself - got pulled out of Korra. We’re talking about a ten-thousand-year connection being completely severed. And on top of that, she was attacked and destroyed. The spirit of light and peace was destroyed by the spirit of darkness. So there have to be major consequences to that. Irreversible consequences. Anything less is an insult to the emotional investment we’ve already put into this plotline. If Korra hadn’t lost her connection to her past lives, the fact that she and Raava were separated and defeated would not have meant as much. Watching the past avatars’ memories be destroyed helps us to feel the pain of that separation and the devastation of that destruction. Every time Korra is lost and alone and could really use another voice of counsel, she’s going to feel that loss. She’s going to remember how awful it felt to watch the spirit of darkness take over. She’s going to remember what she’s lost and why that battle was fought. She’s seen that keeping man and spirits separate did not improve the relationship they had together and how the resentment spirits have for man nearly led to the destruction of everything. So she has that much more motivation to make and keep the peace between them and be the avatar she was meant to be.
And besides, weren’t we complaining at the end of last season that having her powers given back to her was too easy of an ending? That we wanted to see her deal with the emotional loss? So now they’ve taken our advice and are making her deal with the loss of something major, and you’re complaining about that? Is there any way to make this fandom happy?
laughs because of people who expect every single lok character to be perfect and completely develop in a matter of episodes and get mad when they’re not (or are no longer) perfect despite the fact that we still have 2 books worth of development to go and having BOOM IMMEDIATE development/personality 180 would be completely boring for the rest of the show
