So I am starting an episodic review of the new season of Legend of Korra. As you know I like Avatar and there will be review of the Legend of Korra previous seasons in the future, but for now it is time to talk about season 4 of Legend of Korra. I am going to SPOIL the whole episode then give my thoughts on it so you have been WARNED.
(Also this is outside of SUPERHERO MONTH, unless you think of the Avatar like an amazing superhero, like I do.)
So this season takes place three years after the previous season, with the focus being on the inauguration of the new king of the earth kingdom, Prince Wu.
We cut to Kai and Opal taking down a group of bandits in a earth kingdom town, showing us the condition the earth kingdom still is after three years.
Meanwhile in the earth kingdom we see Kuriva from the previous season working with Bolin and and Opal’s brother, trying to reunite the earth kingdom territories and on the way take down some bandits and force them the join the cause.
After this Kuriva and her crew arrive at the same town that Opal and Kai are trying to protect and how they try to save the town, without making them pledge loyalty to Kuriva. They ultimately fail and the town pledges loyalty to Kuriva. Meanwhile we get everyone is waiting to see Korra, because she is coming to the coronation, especially Meelo.We then see that the Southern Water Tribe ship arrives and Korra is not on it. Tonraq tells us she has been gone for six months and she has been sending him letters telling him that she is here. We cut to Avatar Korra in a Earthbending match and losing horribly, she walks away after the match denying that she is the Avatar.
Overall, this was and awesome start to the season. We see how the world is different from before and we get hints as to who the villain is and what their goal is. It was bold to hold off showing Korra till the end of the episode, but it was worth it and it was awesome. We see how she is a shadow of herself and that she is lost. Anyway awesome start I can’t wait to see more.
