// just because a character is a nonbender and doesn’t fight doesn’t make them useless

fighting isn’t the only redeeming character trait
bending isn’t the only redeeming character trait
a character isn’t less just because they’re a nonbender
a character isn’t less because they choose not to fight

drop that fucking misconception right at the fucking door

OOC: Wait. Seriously? Is this actually an issue?

*Points to Pema, a loving and devoted wife and mother*

*Points to Senna, mother of the Avatar*

*Points to Varrick and (possibly) Zhu Li, both non-benders who don’t fight that we’ve seen so far*

*Yin, Bolin’s grandmother*

*The Earth Queen*

*President Raiko*

Do I really need to go on? These characters are all wonderful, unique, well-written characters that bring something different to the table (even if there is one character here I don’t really like… The Earth Queen was clearly meant to be disliked, and she’s still a well-written and fun character)

I love your Korra analysis post so much. I'm crying holy shit.

OOC: Thank you! I’m sorry I made you cry. I felt the finale was very powerful, and the characterization of Korra leading up to this moment was too amazing not to speak about. I’m really looking forward to Book 4 and seeing what happens to her next.

Varrick in Book 4

Hmm this probably doesnt make much sense…
But since we are apparently getting Varrick backstory in book 4 (according to his voice actor), what if it turns out he is one of the hidden red lotus members?
Since book 4 will deal with the remaints of the red lotus, it would certainly make most sense…

OOC: Whoa. That didn’t even occur to me! It does make sense. Zaheer talked about how Unalaq went against the original plan the Red Lotus had…

So, of course a Red Lotus agent would try to take him out.

And then, there’s also the fact that Varrick tried to have the president kidnapped. (The Red Lotus had talked about doing that)

And then, Varrick seemed completely unsurprised by the giant Vaatu monster out in the Bay…

Also, remember Varrick’s first appearance? When he was trying to levitate? (Inspired by Zaheer / that stuff about Guru Laghima?)

Crazy water-bending ex-girlfriend… (Ming Hua?)

Perfectly timed explosions… (P’Li?)

Walking over a bed of hot coals… (Ghazan?)

… I wasn’t so sure about my Red Lotus Varrick theory before, but.., what if it is going in that direction? What if they’ve been giving us hints this whole time?

And like maybe Varrick wasn’t able to free anyone because the prisons were SECRET. Only Tonraq, Unalaq, and Lord Zuko really knew about them.

This would also explain why Varrick’s subplot was a focus in Season 2 this whole time. They’re setting him up for more baddie status.

// I like this theory, I really do, but at the same time another friend of mine brought up the fact that Varrick NEEDS some form of order and government to function and exploit. In a world of total anarchy (or “freedom” as Zaheer called it) he has nothing. It just seems so contrary to his goals in life.

OOC: True. Although, the Red Lotus aren’t so much about anarchy as destroying the old, then rebuilding the new.

And let’s face it. If he thought wartime would be a money-making enterprise, what about temporary anarchy?

People are going to want weapons, food…

Of course, it’s also possible that he’s just working things all on his own and putting a wrench in everybody’s plans (Red Lotus and Team Avatar) to maximize the benefit to himself, maybe. He is an opportunist, after all.

okay these “Suyin is evil” theories are getting into some pretty desperate and… weird territory now

let’s all take a deep breath, accept that the theories were wrong and Su isn’t some kind of Red Lotus spy, and focus on the more important issues.

who is Kuvira and why was she introduced at the last minute? What does it mean??????????

OOC: I fully admit my theory was wrong. Suyin is far too entrenched in good guy territory to be bad/part of the Red Lotus.

Also, while the focus on Kuvira is highly suspect, I feel like it might be a coin toss on whether she’s a Red Lotus spy.

On the one hand, it seems like the most logical and (obvious) conclusion. The focus on her, the fact that we don’t have a villain for Book 4 yet, the fact that there are way too many good guys already. Plus, we already kind of have some foreshadowing in that direction.

"The guards… It had to be one of them." - Korra… Avatar instinct???

But on the other hand, it seems TOO obvious. And there’s the fact that Kuvira saved Chief Tonraq. Wouldn’t it have been easier to let the world leader die and make with the crocodile tears act? “I’m so, so sorry I couldn’t save him.”

So, things seem uncertain for the moment.
