I vaguely remembered that you weren't able to use your bending powers inside the spirit world, is that incorrect?
Prior to this season, we had only ever seen benders enter the spirit world via meditation. They could never use their powers because they weren't actually, physically there. Now, with the spirit portals open, benders can walk right into the spirit world and take their bodies and bending along for the ride.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Which reminds me when we see Middle Aged Aang for the first time, was that supposed to be Aang's ghost/spirit speaking to Tenzin or was he hallucinating it?

You mean in the Fog? I kind of wondered the same. I liked the idea of that scene (Tenzin coming into his own, realizing he doesn't need to be exactly like his father), but the execution of it was a little unclear.

Which also also reminds me... maybe in Book Three we can finally learn how Aang died!

Perhaps.

I do wonder why Avatar spirits look the way they do? For example, Roku's spirit is an old man. Aang is a middle-aged man. Kyoshi seems like a relatively young woman.

Are these the ages they died, or do they choose how they want to appear?

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Remember how Tenzin said that the Fog brought out a person's worst memories?

Aang looked a bit older in the Fog than he did in Korra's flashback. I think it was Aang right before he died. Aang died relatively young and I'm sure that always haunted Tenzin... And so he saw his father in his worst memory...

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

Avatar Kyoshi lived something like 250 years. So maybe it is about how they see themselves.

What's telling is that when Aang appeared to Korra in Book 1, he looked like he was in his 30s or so, but Tenzin saw him as an older man. That suggests that Tenzin was hallucinating, seeing his father as he remembered him. Although I wouldn't put it past Aang's spirit to have been influencing the vision somehow.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

^ 230, and she looked pretty good. I too have wondered if avatars appear at the age they died or if they appear in some other form, either how they choose or how the current avatar "remembers" them.

Do Kya and Bumi have their own family, children, loved ones?
It doesn't look like it. Kya seems to be more of a new agey free spirit who doesn't want to be tied down and Bumi doesn't appear to have anyone. Looks like Tenzin is the only one with a wife and kids, and he had them late. That must have been another source of concern for Aang. First he has two kids who aren't airbenders, then he finally has one who isn't married with kids at 30.

Bumi still has time for kids. But dang... he'd have to have a very strong woman to keep him in line. Like his namesake (and possibly past self), he's nuts!
ETA: Well, some of the time. I can see that Katara's side of the family balances him a bit. He's got some influence from his Uncle Sokka. So there's hope for him yet.
I'd like to know who Lin's father was.

Did anyone else find the music overbearingly obnoxious by the end?

I have noticed the soundtrack was seriously drowning out the dialogue at times.

Re: The Legend of Korra - Book Two: Spirits

An interesting article about Book 2's ratings...

Behind the scenes, Nickelodeon never really had the intentions of cancelling the series. Instead, they were looking for a quick fix to suppress the unexpected issues. They changed Book 2’s time slot several times until they were satisfied with the results. The impact was fairly negative in the beginning, but the improvement over the course of the second half of the season showed that the time slot change had worked:
