The Dai Li Before & The Dai Li Now
I did it Mako, I saved the company!
To me, this was the saddest moment in this episode.
Asami was born without bending powers.
Her mother was killed by firebenders.
Her father decided to become an Equalist to avenge her mother, and she had to fight him and put him in jail.
She dated a Firebender, until he broke up with her by cheating on the Avatar.
She’s still friends with both that Firebender and the Avatar.She is around 17 years old like Korra, But she has no one in her life anymore, was thrusted into managing a company, got screwed over by her partner Varrick, and ended up in the middle of a war she never wanted to be a part of.
And through it all, she hasn’t shown a sign of turning dark.
She is single-handedly the most selfless character in the entire series.If Asami becomes a villain or tragic fallen hero in the next season, it would be completely justified, because she was -no, she is- treated like garbage.
Team Avatar + Sand-sailer
LoK twins bending in unison.
Sokka once had a sexist attitude (The Water Tribe were traditional with gender roles because it was “the natural order of things”) but after being humbled by Suki and her fellow Kyoshi Warriors, he began to see women as equals and developed a newfound respect for them.
A++++ Character Development
# OH MAN I CAN GO ON AND ON WITH THIS ONE # but this is my favorite character arc # the first five minutes of this show already mentioned the word ‘sexist’ # I knew it was going to be special # and its a girl calling out her brother that he’s an idiot # his sexism stems from ignorance # and the viewers get to understand WHY he was sexist # he grew up in a environment where the men were warriors # but he never (and the series never showed) female water tribe warriors # his father entrusted him to look after the tribe and his sister # he doesn’t think men are better than women #but rather he believed there are certain things women at good at (feminine activities like sewing and men are good at (masculine activities # imagine katara had to go put up with this bullshit # she calls him out but does he listen? no # because he’s stubborn and people tend to not listen to their family members # so he needed someone very special to smack that sexism out his system # Suki made him a better person # after being outmatched by this superior warrior # he HUMBLES himself and took his humiliation an opportunity to learn from someone who is clearly more skilled # and then he APOLOGIZES his behavior # again Suki teaches him another lesson when he said ‘I treated you like a girl when I should have treated you like a warrior’
Yeah I mean I couldn’t agree more when it comes to this…that the WORD “SEXIST” APPEARS IN THIS SHOW AT ALL let alone in THE FIRST MINUTE of in-narrative dialogue is exceptional.
I firmly believe that Katara’s instant, prodigious mastery of Waterbending reaffirms this development, as does Sokka’s unerring friendship with the incomparable Toph Beifong.
You think freedom is something that you can give or take on a whim. But to your people, freedom is just as essential as air. And without it there is no life. There is only darkness.
