It was wild speculation, not confirmed. Sorry for being unclear.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

You know, I'm almost wondering if Amon is possessed by an evil spirit. I can't figure out how he would be able to overcome Tarrlok's blood-bending.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

A friend of mine has a theory that Amon is Ang's other son, Boomie. Far feached us viable as we have not seen his other two kids yet.

Just my wild guess, Yakone is Amon.

Let's see. He's practiced the illegal art of bloodbending; kidnapped the Avatar; vandalized the council hall; attacked Councillor Tenzin, several police officers, and several private citizens cooperating with them; and confessed to concealing his true identity and masterminding a plot to gain power. I'd say his political career, not to mention his freedom, is pretty much over.
But he's also a weasel. Somehow shift it to Amon, make himself out to be a martyr, rustle up support.....

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book One: Air

Too many witnesses. And I don't think you're considering just how horrific bloodbending is. It's the one form of bending that's actually outlawed. It's the Avatarverse equivalent of being a child molester or something. There's no way he can recover from this politically, even if it's just an accusation.

Not going to happen, Kya and Bumi haven't been mentioned in the show and there are only 3 episodes left this season, introducing them right before the finale and then revealing Bumi as Amon wouldn't work.

Yeah, that's the main thing that keeps doubts in my mind whether Bumi is Amon or not. But this latest episode was structured so we'd start drawing a parallel between Aang and Amon, in that Yakone has his bending taken away by Aang, and then his son suffers the same fate at the hands of Amon.

Also, the out-of-show information that Aang and Katara had three children, a water-bender, an air-bender and a non-bender, is just perfectly lined up to have it turn out that the non-bender actually inherited the third type of bending that's in the family line: spirit bending.

But yeah, if that's where it's going it's weird they haven't done much with Bumi in the show proper.

They were mentioned in episode 1.
Pema: Were Tenzin and his siblings this crazy when they were kids?
Katara: Kya and Bumi certainly were, but Tenzin has always been... rather serious.
Making a point of mentioning them like that may have just been an easter egg for the fans -- "Hey, Aang and Katara named their kids after Katara's mom and Aang's old friend!" -- but it could also have been to put Chekhov's Gun on the wall.

In this case, Chekhov's gun is a derringer, so fleeting it's easy to miss it.

Sincerely,

I'm curious. You must have a screen shot showing where it was written - on screen - that the name is spelled "Bumi," yes? Otherwise, you're pulling it out of your butt, and ASSuming you're right.

Well, it was spelled "Bumi" in the original show, and Aang clearly named his son after that character, so it stands to reason it would be spelled the same.

Was there a note, or a book, or banner, or something else, that was depicted on screen showing that spelling? I'm able to find five episode titles that have character names in them, but "Bumi" is not among them.

Jet, Zuko Alone, Appa's Lost Days, Sokka's Master, and Sozin's Coment Part 4: Avatar Aang.
