Legend of Korra has killing it this last season, and today's episode ("Long Live the Queen") was particularly outstanding. Spoilers below.
While I was expecting the Earth Queen to fall from power by the end of the season, I did not expect a Nickelodeon show (even if it's no longer on air) to go with asphyxiation. That was just brutal (though it couldn't have happened to a nicer person). I have no idea where this season is going to go from here, but I can't wait to see it.
Some other comments:
- Fort Bosco? I'm guessing it was named by the Earth Queen's father.
- Asami total competence continues to impress me.
- I'm taking bets on how long it will take SyFy to steal the monster of the week.
- I wonder if the violence of Earth Queen's death (even though they never actually said the word "die") was a factor in the timing of the shift to streaming?
- If the top image does not inspire at least gigabyte of fanfic, the internet is not doing its job.
