After watching LOK finale:I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS why am i crying i wanna hug korra
Studio MIR blows my mind
I feel like this entire scene had really good moments. They were small and unnoticeable if you were paying attention to the whole arc of the episode rather than the small moments. We’ve been doing commentaries all day of the small moments and I really wanted to touch base on this one. We’ve seen so much interaction between these two from their intimate talk before going off to fight, their father-daughter fighting tag team, and then him watching her battle Zaheer. What pains me to think about is how much I think Tonraq thinks he’s let down Korra as well. Whether she’s the Avatar or not, she’s still his child. She’s still his one and only pride and joy. He’s almost lost her on several life-threatening occasions but all those times before have never beat her down so far. And now, I would imagine that he wants to be there for her. It kills me to think about his scene with her when he was trying to wake her up. And when she does, he tells her he’s never going to let her go again. What Tonraq must be thinking is that he’s let her down. And she probably thinks she’s let him down after he’s told her how proud he is.
I love this part because he comes over to her and kneels in front of her, telling her how beautiful she is. We can see that she’s got the bags under her eyes - that she’s suffering from her poisoning, from depressing, or from nightmares. Whatever the case, she is his shining little girl no matter what. And in the frame before this, she doesn’t have that inkling of a smile on her face. But here…she has a smile. They both do. And for a moment, they look at each other and have this incredibly endearing relationship that kills me.
I imagine that when she thinks about home, she thinks about him most especially (not that I don’t give Senna credit as well, I just wish her relationship with Korra was more intimate than what is shown).
I JUST REALIZED
THIS IS WHY BOOK 3 IS CALLED “CHANGE”
NOPE. I AM NOT OKAY.
i feel you dashboard
To anyone who really needed to hear this melody after the finale
(I know I did)
Jinora, come forward. Today we welcome the first airbending master in a generation, and I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter. When the existence of our people was threatened, when the avatar’s life hung in the balance, Jinora never gave up hope. Thanks to her leadership, I see a very bright future for the air nation. Of course there would be no air nation without avatar Korra. She opened the portals and somehow the world began anew for us, and she was even willing to lay down her own life in order to protect ours. There’s no way we can ever repay her for all she’s done, but we can follow her example of service and sacrifice. So while she recuperates, the air nation will reclaim its nomadic roots and roam the earth. But unlike our ancestors, we will serve people of all nations, working wherever there is corruption and discord, to restore balance and peace. Avatar Korra, I vow that we will do everything in our power to follow in your footsteps and bring harmony to the world. Now, let us anoint the master who will help lead us in our new path. Master Jinora.
