    Ah, this is really helpful. There was a lot of information I’d seen on wikis and such that I didn’t know where it came from that came from here. I’d heard quite a few references to Escape from the spirit world but didn’t know exactly what it was or what was in it until now. (Understanding this, I guess this does mean that the Avatar fancomic I’ve been working on is even more canonically inaccurate than I realized, but I’m not going to worry about that. x3)

    Regarding the listener question toward the beginning, about Tenzin’s eye twitch and Kelly’s comment about an anime where someone identifies the way someone casts their eye down to the lower left has some psychological significance—when I heard that I thought, ‘Oh gosh, I know I’ve seen that one.’ (It took me a little while, but that was from Naruto, wasn’t it? The Hinata-Neji fight, in which Neji analyzes Hinata’s eye movements and postures to know what she’s thinking. There was something about how, when her eye rolls to the upper right, she was remembering something painful in the past, and when her eye drops to the lower left, based on those past experiences, she’s formulating possibilities of pain in the future—or something like that, could have been the other way around. It’s been ages since I’ve seen that.)

    I have to agree with the conclusion you all made here, in that the way Tenzin moves his eyes there, it’s probably just he’s thinking about possibilities of who else could have that power and how. (Or actually—I’ve only seen the show once, so I’m not too familiar with all the events, and I know this podcast episode came out before the later seasons of Korra were released. Could it have ben related to something we find out in later seasons, such as concerning the Red Lotus? Or did Mike and Brian even have Korra planned out that far at that stage? Since I guess we know originally they were only planning one season. Not really sure at all there, my Korra knowledge is pretty shaky.)

    But anyway, I think it is true that both Korra and Avatar do some odd things as far as animation goes, in having characters have expressions or gestures that would make us expect them to have some significance, based on how these devices would generally be used in other animations. A quick look down and off to the side I think most often would hint a character is hiding something, or they know something they aren’t saying. I think there was something that gave me a similar reaction in one of the later seasons (I have no idea which episode, like I said, I’ve only seen Korra clear through once), I think an episode with Sue, after they discover that the earthbender who specializes in reading if people are lying is a traitor. If I’m remembering right, when they tell her he’s a traitor, she does something similar, with a quick look off to the side (or maybe she does it later on in the scene, when the others aren’t there), and I remember thinking at the time, ‘She isn’t in on it too, is she?!’ (It was hard to believe they’d make one of Toph’s kids into a bad guy, but you never know.)

    I think there’s a similar situation in the Avatar comics with the whole Zuko-Suki speculation from The Promise. The things Suki says and the situations—even though taking those scenes at face value there’s really nothing hinting at feelings on either side, the devices used in scenes between them are, admittedly, most often used in stories to build relationships in a romantic context. (For instance, Suki’s cutting herself off to change saying ‘I’m worried about you,’ to ‘We’re worried about you’ instead. Normally, this kind of mid-sentence change indicates some level of discomfort, most often from a character who likes/is beginning to like another, and, noticing that they are saying something that the other might take as too intimate, corrects themselves to put a little more distance between them. Of course, it is also used in situations where one of the character’s key personality traits is that s/he does not like to be identified as sensitive or caring—I think if Toph had been the one saying this ‘I—we were worried about you,’ there would have been less of a deal made about it, because we expect Toph to always try to play the tough guy. I think that’s probably what they were going for for Suki in that scene, but because Suki never really came across that way [that is, embarrassed to act too nice], it did come across a bit strange.)

    …Sorry, got off on a tangent there. (And, not sure if this counts as a spoiler, being on such an old video that came before the comics. I’m not exactly sure what the site rules are about that.)
