Less action and more plot this week.
Here’s the poop, if there’s one thing all forms of visual media have taught me, it’s that hot chicks are usually evil. I’m betting a lot of money on Asami Sato here using Mako’s natural male hormones to trick Korra into enemy hands. In short, I think she’s an equalist and her daddy, Hiroshi Sato, owner of Sato Motors, is unaware of her treachery. Either that, or she’s a 3rd wheel to progress the obligatory romance between Korra and Mako. Please let it only be the former and not a combination of both.
Typical politician. It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if he’s also a villain. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and suspect him of only wanting to help the city by forming a task force against Amon’s Equalists for his own gain. That would be much simpler.
He tries his darndest to recruit Korra into his strike force and after giving into pressure, Korra eventually does. She looks pretty good for a tomboy. Then again, I’ve never doubted her sex appeal. Ah, if I were seven years younger.
Korra, trying hard to both deny and prove to the public of fearing Amon, publicly challenges him to a duel. However, Amon has other plans and instead brilliantly postpones their destined duel to avoid the people starting an uprising due to Korra becoming a martyr. Confident bastard. Oh, and after knocking her out, Korra gets flashback material visions before finally confessing her fears to Master Tenzin.
Well, the visions will obviously be answered later. So, final thoughts: I think Asami’s a double agent, the politician’s just a greedy bastard and Amon’s probably hiding a deeper secret than just being a war victim.
