In which I detail my grand unified theory of this episode and the entire show up to now, hammer some more on that "Old vs. New" thing (and maybe it even makes sense), show why I think some of the throwaway moments in the episode are actually the most important things in it, and...
I'm not 100% convinced that's adult Sokka, but it sure looks a little like Hakoda, so it probably is.
She was chi-blocked at the time. No bending. I'm assuming it's the same effect as what happened when Aang was blocked and couldn't access the Avatar State during season 3.Amon and the Equalist capturing Korra so easily seemed a bit odd. I'm kind of wondering...why didn't the Avatar state trigger when they tied her up?
Other bit that I didn't get to in the recap -- I noticed that there's a hint on what that little fish/arrow thing is on Tenzin's robes because all the other senior council members are wearing one, too. There's one member from each Nation on the council, but Tarrlok doesn't have one because (I presume) he's the junior Water Tribe member.
Asami is also teh hotness. If she ends up in Korra's fabulous hat, I might get in real trouble . Though I have to also wonder how long it'll last between her and Mako if Mako had issues with Korra's casual comment about having people taking care of things for her.
