I feel that it’s only fair to give everyone a heads up: I was not amused or satisfied by the goings-on in this finale. There were a few bright spots, but overall? COMPLETE AND UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT.
So much for Korra being a “strong female character”.
Season 2’s gonna have to be full of diamonds, because wow. And then the Amon whitewashing. (Good grief, whitewashing is everywhere, isn’t it?) I love LoK, but that was disappointing. Gonna have to change my desktop image so I don’t collapse from disappoint. QQ sigh. I’m going to need for the things I love to stop stabbing me point-blank.
BRHood: Yeah, let’s talk about this. I mean, it wasn’t bad enough that Katara and Sokka were both whitewashed in LoK? Then THIS had to happen? How do you even explain this? You have this flashback AND MAKE HIM BROWN IN THE FLASHBACK (meaning they have the ability to do that, so there was no reason for Sokka being so whitewashed when he appeared in flashbacks), and then make his skin white when he’s finally shown? Brown people don’t become white when they get older. Even if they do spend some time behind a mask.
There is just too much wrong with this series. And they even had time to whitewash while doing it.
Amon, lay off the bleachbending. Shit not even cute.
ngl I loved this ep but I did NOT get that
I mean they are CLEARLY not the same skin color? Wut?
yeah that was really weird. i’m guessing plastic surgery maybe? but still whaaat
yeah. my initial guess was that he had plastic surgery but after that, that scarred face was clearly just makeup.
idk what is going on here
if the Avatar universe has plastic surgery now
do you think they have fucking Fair and Lovely skin lightening cream
CAN BROWN PEOPLE CATCH A BREAK ANYWHERE
EVEN IN A SHOW WITH ABSOLUTELY NO WHITE PEOPLE
LIKE SHIT, BRAH
OH I GET WHAT HAPPENED.
CHECK THIS OUT YO.
THE ONLY BROWN PEOPLE ON THIS SHOW ARE WATERBENDERS AND THEY STAY BROWN DOWN IN THE SNOW.
OKAY OKAY, CHECK IT, SO AS SOON AS AMON LEFT, THE BROWN ON HIS SKIN DECIDED TO DISAPPEAR BECAUSE HE’S NO LONGER IN THE SOUTH POLE NO MORE.
THE SOUTH POLE HAS BROWN SKINNING POWERS YAW.
THE SOUTH POLE ITSELF IS SKIN COLOR BENDING AND IT LOSES ITS EDGE WHEN THEY LEAVE ITS SOUTH POLEY REACHES.
THEN THEY HAVE A CONDITION SIMILAR TO—I fucking can’t.
I just can’t. I don’t get. What the fuck, Bryke? Like really dudebros? REALLY?
Can I endure more disappointment just because I loved AtLA? Can I?
^All my sentiments^
I just … can’t. I need to go work on my own things and stop relying on people to stop doing this and stop getting face-planted by things I love.
There be spoilers. Sort of.
Everybody (including me at some points) are freaking out about Amon not being controlled by blood bending. It’s because he doesn’t have blood.
He’s a robot.
With all this futuristic technology around, don’t you think someone would have come up with the idea of a robot by now?
I dunno. He “strained” against Tarrlok’s grip *shrug* But then again, parts of him could be prosthetic (like his legs) …. Ooohh. This could be the result of his injuries (one of which was losing his face).
Interesting observation! =D
