I’m watching the last episode of Avatar’s Season 3, and I have to question the Red Lotus’ “brilliant plan”
They want to end the Avatar’s line to create peace. No more “supreme” ruler! Yay! Let’s kidnap the Avatar, poison her and kill her in her Avatar state, since killing her in that state ends the Avatar permanently.
It might have worked when she was a little kid, with less control over her abilities. Still, though, that’s when she’s out of her Avatar state. Usually, when someone in Avatar state, he/she is ridiculously powerful.
When Korra’s Avatar state finally surfaces, the faces of Ming-Hua and especially Ghazan are hilarious. They’re literally saying, “Oh shit” and “Hmm…bad decision” as Korra breaks free of her chains and hurls that boulder chain around.
On a final note: why does Season Four have to be the final season?! ;(
