Finally my question got answered!! Baatar Jr actually cares for his sister. But the fact that Kuvira got her hands on the weapon and that it does so much destructive damage leaves me worried for Republic City. The Fire Lord did say she would help with guarding the borders of Republic City, but if it is attacked in 2 weeks then I wonder if that will change her approach. In terms of the next episode, “Kuvira’s Gambit,” I kind of expect a huge turn of events to occur. Maybe she will attack Republic City in 1 week instead of two, or she will change her plans since she knows Zhu-Li is a traitor. On top of that, since she has the weapon, does she need Baatar Jr. around? Maybe she will get rid of him as an assistant, although I’m not too strong on that.
I hope Korra convinces the spirits to defend. Perhaps they don’t have to attack, but defending will definitely show the bond between the spirits and humans that has formed. And lol about the carrot guy. What I don’t want is Kuvira making more of those superweapons, and I don’t want this to become an arms race like in the Cold War. Flying mech suits though? Sounds really dope and I want to see them in action. I hope Asami gets credit for her work on it, since Varrick is hogging up so much of the spotlight.
The Earthbending brawl was pretty sweet. Even if your favorite element isn’t earthbending, you couldn’t help but enjoying the fight scenes (my element is fire btw). And when Su’s zoomed in fighting scene came in, it was really nice because of the intensity and quick pace of the fight. Then Mother Earth, aka Toph lol, came in and literally destroyed every mech and soldier attacking. I also love how Kuvira knew she couldn’t beat them by herself so she had to accept their retreat.
But I just got this thought while typing, what if Kuvira DOES get rid of Baatar Jr.? His loyalty did waver in that split second, and they didn’t get enough time to show her reaction. That leaves me with that thought. But anyways, I’m looking forward to the next episode and the review of this episode! It also makes me a bit sad that the series is coming to a final halt at last. :/
