I would have assumed Zuko would have more of his mother's features.

I've read some of "The Search" and...



All that being said, sometimes siblings look like different family members. It'd be fun if Zuko bore some resemblance to the man who truly acted like a father to him.

I enjoyed that episode. Nice to finally see Unalaq's motives.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

"The Guide"...

I liked it too. We got some answers to Jinora being called to the avatar carving and subsequent vision. She has the ability to slip into the state necessary to connect with the more subtle spirit world, something that can help Korra. I was also pretty amused by Tenzin and Korra's early attempts at meditation, complete with all the tinkering around and getting nowhere that often plagues those who don't know what they're doing. The only thing I didn't quite like about the episode was the constant cuts to the Mako/Varrick stuff. It felt a bit jarring when played against the spiritual quest.

The season is picking up and once again I'm excited for more.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Nice to see Jinora being so important to the plot now!

I was disappointed that the Unaloq / Dark Spirit connection was revealed so matter of factly to us. I would have liked a more shocking revelation, even though most of us guessed it last episode.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

^ It's still yet to be seen if this "dark avatar" bit will come to pass.

Also, I just read that Book 2 will end this month.

Nov. 8: Episode 10
Nov. 15: Episodes 11 & 12 as a one-hour block
Nov. 22: Episodes 13 & 14 as a one-hour block

I hope that those two episode bundle nights are because they're two part episodes or thematically related and not because the network is burning off the remainder of the season due to poor ratings.

This was also the last episode animated by Studio Pierrot, Studio Mir is doing the rest of the season and Book 3.

For reference it was Mir for all of Book 1 and the Beginnings two-parter.

The episodes have different titles so they probably aren't two-parters, but given the serialized nature of the show, I'm sure they'll blend together. And yeah, my first thought was that they're burning off the episodes due to ratings.

If I remember correctly, Book 3 has already been written, voiced, and storyboarded.

They're not titled as 2-parters, but they might be thematically related. Episode 10 is "A New Spiritual Age," 11 is "Night of a Thousand Stars," 12 is "Harmonic Convergence, 13 is "Darkness Falls," and 14 is "Light in the Dark."

And as I've mentioned before, reportedly the online viewings and iTunes purchases are still doing very well even if the on-air ratings are disappointing. Still, it's possible they're packaging the last four as hourlong specials so they can make a big deal out of promoting them and try to boost ratings that way.

Those were ordered back in 2012. They've already done voice recordings for Book 3 and were in the process of recording Book 4 as of the latest update a few weeks ago at New York Comic-Con.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

That's a relief. Judging by the titles of episodes 13 and 14, it'll have to deal with Raava and Vaatu having their face-off.

I love seeing Jinora as the spiritual leader in this. I feel bad for Tenzin. He had so much pressure on him from the beginning. I'm sure Aang didn't intend to do it, but he pushed his younger boy too hard. And now Tenzin feels like a failure. Parents put pressure on their kids without intending to. I'm also sure that Aang would be heartbroken to know that he caused damage to his kids.

And through Korra, Aang could actually find out what happened to his kids.

Actually, his kids could talk to him if he "possessed" Korra, couldn't they? Interesting twist about having your father be the avatar, they should totally do that.
