    Wow, that Colossus seems even more dangerous than Vaatu. It’s like if UnaVaatu & a Mecha Tank had a baby hell-bent on destroying the world. (hello, more on-screen deaths!)
    Pretty cool they got Iroh Jr. some screentime but I doubt we will get any interaction between him and his mom. Too bad.
    Kuvira’s betrayal was pretty easy to predict, ambition’s more important than family to her. Interestingly, we got a pattern with the main villains. Amon did care about his brother in the end, Unalaq did not care about his kids, Zaheer did care about P’li and now Kuvira didn’t care about Bataar enough to stop her invasion.
    Now, obviously they didn’t die at the end but I still can’t wait to see the rest of the finale.
    And we’re gonna get 2 more episodes of this madness? Crazy.

    Whoa… I am in shock. That was probably the most shocking episode of the season!
    And the lengths Kuvira went to..!
    I’ll be back when more people have posted and my thoughts aren’t still going crazy and my heart beats back at its normal pace.

    Yea it was figured that Kuvira’s army would attack earlier than expected. However, what I think nobody predicted was the spirit weapon being on a jumbo ginormous mechatank and bypassing the terrain and all :o Seems kind of far-fetched that they were able to create something that epic and sophisticated under everyone’s radar and so fast..workers who worked on that must have been doing serious overtime lolol.

    I find it very sad that Kuvira decided to try and kill Bataar Jr. to get to Korra and the others as well..altho I’m not surprised she would do such a terrible thing. What is even sadder is Bataar Jr. seems to truly love Kuvira..while Kuvira doesn’t really return that love…rather she simply sees him as another lifeless object to manipulate to further her ambitions :( Will be interesting to see how Bataar Jr. will react in finale now that he pretty much got proof that Kuvira can’t be trusted and that she also doesn’t really love him (assuming Bataar Jr. lived).

    Aang: ..Well what do you think we should do??
    Zuko: …Think about our place in the universe?

    WOW :)

    The super-weapon is genuinely terrifying. I guess it makes sense that since they had giant monsters in book 2 they now need to have giant robots in book 4.

    I like this finale to the series, a full-scale war involving all our main characters and taking place in the central location. But of course there’s not going to be an epic battle between huge armies because Bryan hates that kind of stuff. Bummer.

    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!!

    Well with this episode out we have just 1 week until the end of Korra. 1 more time for us to speculate about what is to come.

    Overall I loved this episode, it had some great emotional character moments and also did a great job at turning things up to 11 going into the finale. We are in the final battle already, so this was a good set up episode.

    Cliffhanger was really interesting, I wonder if it is really asking us the question and making us think “Who survived?” or if it was just a dramatic way to end the episode. We will know in a week, but I kind of hope it is more of a case of at the very least some of these characters are injured.

    Loved the Zhu Li and Varrick scene, really hope we get that backstory at some stage in the finale.

    I loved how it seemed that Bolin was trying to ship Varrick and Zhu Li. That was a nice moment. I also liked that Prince Wu is becoming better at being a good leader. It’s like watching him grow up lol

    Well… That certainly was intense. I think I was most surprised to see that Kuvira appeared at least slightly upset about sacrificing Battar Jr. I truly thought she was just using him and had absolutely no romantic feelings for him. But then, can an insane dictator really have feelings for anyone…? (lol)

    I was very pleased with this episode. Wu stepping up to to the plate as a great King, Korra’s fantastic plan to use Battar against Kuvira, and of course, Kuvira proving herself to be a nut job with no concern for human life (gotta have a baddie!). Personally I didn’t abandon as much of my seat as I did in the final episodes of book 3, but I think this is a really good set up for the end of the series.

    Gotta say, I’m a little bothered by Toph’s statement from the last episode, considering the state of affairs… The whole “gotta let the kids take care of it” thing seems pretty lame when the future of the world is at stake. With this kind of threat I’d like to see every able bodied fighter out there trying to protect the world’s freedom! Screw your aching back, get your old boney butt back in gear! Water tribes, ice-surf down there and serve up some liquid justice! If Eska and Desna could could get down there in a day they can do it again. All the world leaders must know what’s going on and be holding back to defend their own territory if it comes down to that, but that was Raiko and Izumi’s mistake in the first place! Now Raiko’s lost his city, and Izumi’s probably lost a great chunk of her army, including her son.

    But I digress… Only something I am sincerely invested in could make my feel so much. I love this universe, the characters, the creators, and especially the fan community I’ve found in all of it. I’ll miss this experience when it’s all over… But at least we’ll still have the comics to talk about!! I can and can’t wait until they catch up with the LOK timeline. <3

    Yea if this truly remains to be the end of the Avatar series..will be very sad to see it go :(..after all we’ve been through and seen! >_< lol. However, remakes and continuations are sometimes done far in the future years later…so never know if this is truly the end of it :)

    I kind of hope we see an epic battle of the armies tho..I know they usually don't like to go down that road..but it's the end of the Avatar series, for crying out loud! (maybe) I just think they should go all out for the end :D Even if it is the end..we can always look back and reminisce fondly..maybe do episode contests and marathons and maybe point out things we mostly missed initially.

    WOW.

    That episode was amazing. My heart is beating so fast… adrenalin. I have never had a reaction to an episode like that.

    I totally didnt see the giant meca suit coming and Kuvira inside it controlling it with her bending!

    I havent read all the posts yet so forgive me if this is repetitiv e but…

    So now we know where all the metal went that was in Su Yin’s city! And metal benders would be able to build the suit easily, I would think, maybe even Kuvira did it. She is so precise. What she needed help with was the spirit weapon. But the suit seemed to be controlled by only her. A supped up version of what Toph did inside the airship and also in the comics to scare her students.
