    I did feel a bit cheated, even though it was entertaining.

    I enjoyed the flashback episode. That said, I was disappointed when I realized it was going to be one-especially after just watching the previous episode. The dramatic change in tone wasn't very appreciated. I thought it was done well though. It will probably be the episode I skip when watching the dvds. Much like "Ember Island Players".

    I enjoyed the 4 way conference call.
    "Hey It's Zaheer, glad I caught you at home"

    This last episode is leading into some good shit. I am glad Zaheer still has a role to play.

    When Korra was in the spirit world with Zaheer in the physical next to her body, I really thought he was up to something

    I was a little suspicious at first. Even if stopping a tyrant is his first priority, he's a cunning bastard.

    And he does say something along the lines of "for now our goals align...". I feel like we haven't seen the last of him yet. Maybe korra is going to have to face her fears in earnest at some point.

    yeah, really good episode today.

    Have you guys noticed Bolin's lava bending? The animation on it just seems so smooth and realistic, just the best bending animation that I've seen on any of the episodes.

    like, his stomp looks cartoonish, but that lava bending

    oh man that new episode was awesome! I've always loved Earth bending the most since when they first showed Toph and when they added Metal bending it became even more awesome!

    So, I am loving all these earth/metal/lava bending fights!!

    Theo, three episodes left.

    Then it's OVER FOR GOOD *sobs*

    At least we have the comics that take place between the two series. I just bought my girlfriend the first two collections of the Promise and The Search, and I preordered the Rift for her. Of course a 4th one would be announced right afterwards

    I got them at the local Barnes & Noble, and preordered the third through them - it'll arrive at the start end of February

    I'm in Australia. Highly unlikely I'll find it in any shop here.

    Is season 3 anywhere online for free (legally obviously). I've been catching up. So far I've seen season 1 and 2. 2 was absolutely awesome from start to finish. Nicks got season 4 up, but that's it.

    Joisus... Kuvira is definitely mental.

    I thought she'd turn out to just be using Baatar Jnr. Guess I was a little wrong but on the right track. I'm guessing he's going to suddenly realise the error of his ways, teach them a weak point in the giant mech suit (Legs or knees for sure) and they'll smash it.

    Anyone else noticed the tech has really stepped up recently in the avatar universe? Makes me wonder if benders would eventually become redundant
