Well I called that she would attack early and she did, but its not good news for Republic City. I had a feeling they did something with the weapon because the episode was titled “Kuvira’s Gambit,” which basically means her secret chess move was going to come out. I didn’t expect a huge mecha-tank though. I felt like that was so overpowered!!! (in a good way or bad way idk). I’m just curious as to how much workload that must’ve been to build that mecha-tank-suit-of-armor-weapon thing, get it functioning, and then transport it all the way to Republic City. On a side note, I thought the episode was gonna end there, but then I realized there was still about 14 minutes left lolol.
Kinda having mixed feelings of Kuvira’s betrayal on Baatar Jr. I was hoping she would use the radar to save Baatar, but then again, seeing her character is totally the tyrannous dictator type, I felt like it suited her. It was also the first time that someone used the radio signals to locate people, especially from a mech suit. I could be wrong though, but it’s the first time that a radio locating device actually caught my attention. Baatar is probably going to help Team Avatar, but I’m still not sure whether he would want her spared or not. Maybe he feels he could change her?
I’ve also been wondering, after Team Avatar and Republic City stop the Earth Empire, assuming it’s a happy ending, what are they going to do with this new technology? There’s flying mech suits, railguns, overpowered laser cannons, overpowered mech suits equipped with laser cannons, radar locating sensors, etc. It seems that the current Avatar world is really dangerous, because these weapons aren’t natural. I also wonder if the spirits will help in the fight, because using those spirit vines is wrong. I hope they just destroy the weapons and hide any kind of evidence that they even existed.
Just another random thought: since cars were recently invented in the Avatar world in season 1, would that make the current time in the Avatar world 1800ish?(correlating with our real life time period of course). So that brings me to the question, if the avatar world progressed to modern era without destroying itself, would the Avatar even be a prominent figure? I mean all this advanced technology is really making the Avatar undersized. When Avatar Aang was around, he was treated like the hope of survival. Now it’s progressively diminishing, especially when people from cities disrespect Korra. Well anyway, it was just a thought.
Excited for the 2 episodes next week!!! Although I’m kinda sad to see the series finally leave us :/ It was an enjoyable series and it somewhat helped me lift of the saddening fact that ATLA was over. Now that Korra is over, it’s gone for good and I’m definitely gonna miss this show forever. They’re probably not making a 3rd series cause they don’t want to drag it, and there’s probably not that many good ideas left. So after those 2 episodes, we’re gonna have to stick with the comics that are coming afterwards, but those are in 2015 D: Well, I just wrote more than I’ll ever probably write in my life, and waiting to see how the story unfolds in the next 2 episodes!!
