    Actually seeing the skeleton of Professor Sesame Street just begs the question of how and when he died. Did Professor Brent die when the library was pulled under or did some time pass? Knowing how much of a jerk Wan Shi Tong is, he probably left Professor Jiminy Cricket to rot.

    That's from years of gnawing off pieces of his own flesh to stay alive.

    So, what is Unalaq's plan?

    He seems to think that what Raava believes about Vaatu is wrong...

    or is he planning to double-cross Vaatu, and is actually aiming to be the Anti-Avatar we talked about earlier?

    He has definitely become a much creepier, more distinct villain in the last episode.


    And how did Unalaq learn how to calm (golden light) or destroy (purple light) Spirits using Water-bending??

    Also, great contrast between what a relationship with an Uncle should look like (Iroh-Zuko) and the exact opposite (Unalaq-Korra).



    Also, spoilerish titles of the last 4 episodes:
    November 15th: "Night of a Thousand Stars" & "Harmonic Convergence"
    November 22nd: "Darkness Falls" & "Light in the Dark"

    Everytime they say Harmonic Convergence or Vatu speaks it immediately takes me out of the moment and reminds me that I'm really watching a Kids show.

    Has anyone noticed that Jinora looks totally like young Aang? Well, a girl version of Aang with brown eyes. :p

    I'm pretty sure Bumi at least is an adult version of Aang but with hair and a gut. He really reminded me of him this episode with how whimsical he was.

    But yeah, I kinda see a resemblance.

    Jinora has so many Aang facial expressions, just like Kya has so many Katara faces.

    He doesn't "think." He knows. Probably because historically trustworthy sources within the show have verified it as being the case.

    Really? Really?

    How dare you. One has the thankless job of teaching a niece who hates him the special skills she'll need to engage against dark spirits, while harvesting all the knowledge of the Spirit Library to make sure that, against human prejudice, she fulfills her destiny and comes to the right side of the conflict.

    The other is doddering old man who actively advocated murdering his niece while switching sides so as to have as many chances as possible at pillaging a major metropolis, which he even admitted seeing as a life goal.

    In Ghost's defense he was saying the relationship of Iroh-Zuko (one of love and respect) was what a relationship with an uncle should look like, not that Iroh was more respectable than Unalaq.

    If Korra similarly loved and respected her uncle wouldn't you be more satisfied?

    Well in that sense, I suppose it is quite true. I certainly think Zuko's ultimate treatment of Iroh vs Ozai is the best model for Korra in dealing with Unalaq and Tonraq.

    Is anyone else hoping that all 3 of Aang's kids go into the Spirit World to get Jinora back, and come across Aang's Spirit?

    I thought Tenzin couldn't go into the spirit world, because it requires some special spiritual connection or something.

    They can enter through the tunnel, which is presumably the only route left to them now that Jinora's trapped. I assume they'll want their bending, too.

    This probably means the Varrick/RC/boring people plotline will coalesce with this one, with some big assault on at least one of the poles. Probably the south, if they'll want to include Tonraq's crew in it too and tie it all together. Probably means no Spirit World for a couple of eps. :(

    Bryan Konietzko just posted on tumblr that they finished mixing the final episode of Book 2, and he posted a couple of images:

    (Korra should wear her hair down more often, IMHO)

    I don't think so, since there are only 2 episodes left.

    And from the episode titles:
    episode titles discussion/speculation]it seems like both will heavily feature Spirits

    As I understand it, there are four half hour episodes left, that will air in two 1 hour blocks on consecutive weeks.

    Also, if they don't use Jello's method, how will they make Tonraq's rebellion, the occupation of the South, or the events of Republic City at all relevant to the rest of what's happening? It seems sort of a stretch even by his proposal. They don't really have time to give entirely separate resolutions to major plot lines like this. They'll have to converge at some point.

    Thanks to whomever pointed out that Jinora was voiced by Kiernan Shipka aka Sally Draper. I re-watched the latest episode and that's all I could hear, especially when she was semi whining.

    Of course, but I'm just saying that well definitely get Spirits in each of the remaining episodes.

    I've been wondering if some of these plots will carry over into the next season, to be honest.

    Yeah, its crazy to think Book 2 will already be over by tonight basically. Four episodes in one day, oh, not sure I can handle so much at once. Though hopefully its not a sign of bad ratings or something, airing those episodes on the Internet before the TV broadcast. Still, the sooner we find out how this season ends, the better. Just hope Nick's site doesn't crash too many times (I expect the number of viewers will probably overload it).
