The new series will take place seventy years after the end of the Avatar: The Last Airbender story arc, with new characters and settings. The protagonist of the new series, Korra, the Avatar after Aang, is a hot-headed and rebellious young woman from the Southern Water Tribe who is “ready to take on the world. “The series will follow Korra as she faces an anti-bender revolt while mastering the art of airbending from Aang and Katara’s son, Tenzin.
The first task force raid against The Legend of Korra Episode 8 an Equalist training facility is successful, and this leads Korra to publicly challenge Amon to a duel on Aang Memorial Island. Once there, however, Amon ambushes her, and while she is subdued, informs her that he will not take her bending away now because then she will become a martyr for all benders to rally up and fight. Instead, he says he plans to save her for last as he enacts his plan for the benders of the world. As Amon knocks her unconscious, Korra sees flashback moments from when Aang was alive around the time the city was founded. Amon disappears, and Tenzin arrives to help Korra, who ends up sobbing in his arms, fearful and traumatized.
The irony of this is that the Equalists claim they are oppressed by benders. Certainly, we’ve seen evidence to back that up: the Council is made up entirely of benders, as is the police force, and there are certain jobs or sports that benders can hold or compete in that non-benders have no access to. However, as we’ve learned in the real world, when we find ourselves faced with true oppression, the best way to combat it is to engage in an open dialogue and to get those in the group with power to check their privileges.
We finally have confirmation of the name of Legend of korra episode 8 which airs this Saturday, June 2nd, as has been rumoured it is indeed “When Extremes Meet” we still do not have an episode description, but as usual Nick have released a clip from the episode, here is the clip not region locked, so everyone can see.
