As predicted the pro-bending tournament ended with an appearance by Amon. He not only steals the show but he also proves a good point about how three bullies are praised as the winners of the bending tournament even though they cheated. Having Amon beat them personally was a nice touch but it might actaully scare off some of his supporters.
Korra did get to kick the leader of the wolfbat’s ass in a one on one which was done in classy Avatar style but appear from that she had little success this episode. She carelessly falls after her victory at the end which causes Bei Fong to lose her chance at facing Amon. Before now I would have suspected Bei Fong to get mad at Korra but it seems they are buddies now.
The past is bought up a lot lot this episode too which is the benifit of having older characters but it’s a tease because we don’t get to see any flashbacks. Persoanlly I’d love to see Tenzin and Bei Fong as children but if they were children it also means that you’d see their parents which in this case is Toph and Aang. We already know who Tenzin’s mother is but we still haven’t been filled in on who is Bei Fong’s father which I feel will never be explained.
Korra does have a flash to the past after she takes a lightning bath but it still doesn’t explain much. A mysterious evil man appear a few times but until Korra has a proper flashback or enters the spirit world to talk to Aang we aren’t going to learn much.
There is no indication as to what will happen next episode so I’d assume it’s something to do with an uprising. That’s what I want to see anyway but we’ll probably just get some filler explaining so new minor characters or something along those lines.
