and they tyically include Lin and Asami and Tenzin which is great but don’t include Korra
I mean what exactly did she do wrong? She hasn’t really responded to Mako except for saying she’s glad he’s here, and she really hasn’t gotten a chance to talk to Asami on her own, so.
idk it just make it…
It’s not that she’s done anything wrong. Personally for me, it’s that despite being a really hotheated, active lady she’d wound up being really passive in the storyline. It’s like the last time she went and did something big was going to confront Tarrlok two episodes ago. She’s not bad, but when you’ve got Lin and Tenzin and even Asami (hell, even the airbabies!) going around having character development and being all proactive and stuff it makes Korra fall into the background. I don’t even feel I really know Korra at all, and she’s meant to be the main character! It’s not dislike, it’s wasted potential. Up to this episode, AMON had been more effective and proactive than Korra when it comes to effecting change and actually resolving a bunch of conflicts (Tarrlok, the Triad leaders, Ferrets vs Wolfbats).
For what it’s worth, I feel the same about Bolin, a character who made a really good first impression on me. There’s just not currently enough depth to either of them for me to really care about them on more than a superficial level at the moment.
Well, she confronted Tarlokk, then she got kidnapped, then she broke out on her own and she went to save Tenzin (which is the same thing Asami did in this episode). I don’t really get the passivity there?
IDK I think her character has more depth that anyone elses by virtue of being the main character. They’ve been pretty consistent that she feels really inadequate as the Avatar and she’s struggling with a lot of responsibility and can’t handle the idea of failing, that she grew up isolated and is naive as a result, so she’s really new to the confusing feelings regarding Mako and doesn’t really do well handling them, that she thinks her entire worth rests in her ability as a bender and she’s terrified of losing that and by extension is terrified of Amon. She usually covers her own fear with aggression and forced happiness, and she can completely lose herself in anger and desperation to prove herself (see the reaction to Tarlokk). But she also has an ability to do well under pressure and think logically, and that might be her path to actually controlling herself.
