Amon is Much More Powerful than Previously Thought

In yesterday’s episode of The Legend of Korra, Amon had confirmed himself to be the main antagonist of the season. Over the course of the past few weeks, Amon and his role as the villain did come into question when Tarrlock captured Korra and revealed his illegal ability to blood bend.

But all this talk of Tarrlock being the ‘real villain’ came to a halting stop when Amon proved that he was much more than a ‘non-bending’ Equalist leader.

In episode 9 ‘Out of the Past’, we confirmed two things about Amon: He actually has the ability to take away bending and he is unaffected by blood bending.

The first ability is not unheard of; Tenzin confirmed that Avatars’ generally have this ability, but what doesn’t make sense is how Amon acquired this ability. The latter ability, however, is unheard of. As far as we know, Amon is neither affected nor bothered by blood bending.

‘The Legend of Korra’ Episode 9 ‘Out of the Past’ Recap

The Legend of Korra episode 9 titled ‘Out of the Past’ was yet another fantastic episode. It further developed the characters, showed us the old ‘Team Avatar’ in numerous flashbacks, and thickened the plot to a point that all my speculations have been proven faulty.

The episode starts off with Tarrlock essentially announcing that the Equalists had ambushed him and Avatar Korra the night before to take Korra captive. In case you may have forgotten, this isn’t what actually happened. In episode 8, we see that Tarrlock attacks Korra and takes her captive himself.

When Tenzin, Bei Fong, Mako, Bolin and Asami hear about this, they decide to break into an Equalist-run underground passage in hopes of finding Bei Fong’s lost men and Korra. Towards the end of the tunnel, Tenzin and company find Bei Fong’s lost men, but not Korra. The lost men confirm that Amon had taken away their bending once he took them hostage.

Later, Tenzin and company find out from an Equalist member that the Equalists were not responsible for the attack that Tarrlock accused them of. Tenzin then uses this as evidence to convict Tarrlock of framing the Equalists for the attack and taking Korra hostage himself.

‘Legend of Korra’ Episode 9 ‘Out of the Past’ Description Revealed

20120603-071040.jpg

Episode 9 of The Legend of Korra titled ‘Out of the Past’ has finally received an official description.

Korra tries to understand her visions; Tenzin and Beifong search for Equalist hostages.

Based on the title and description, I feel that we’ll likely see past characters from The Last Airbender within Korra’s visions, specifically Avatar Aang.

Episode 9 could also show Tenzin and Bei Fong search for the non-bending citizens arrested unjustly by Tarlock.

And then there’s Tarlock, who can blood bend whenever he desires. Episode 9 could shape up to include a lot of different plot points.

‘Legend of Korra’ Episode 9 to be Titled ‘Out of the Past’

Update: ‘Out of the Past’ has officially aired. Check out our recap here.

According to the Xfinity episode guide for The Legend of Korra, the 9th episode in the series will be titled ‘Out of the Past’. It is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, June 9th, exactly one week after the 8th episode airs.

If you check the Xfinity guide yourself, you’ll notice that the 9th episode is not exactly displayed very clearly. When you click the link for The Legend of Korra episodes, a page that displays episodes 1-9 initially flashes, but it then disappears and a new page that only shows episodes 1-7 is displayed.

Luckily we have the technology of ‘Print Screen”, which gives us the ability to capture an image of the displayed page on our computer. I used this feature to quickly capture an image of the initial page that shows the 9th Legend of Korra episode. The image that I captured is shown at the top of this post.

Based solely on the episodes title, I have a hunch that we may see a past character from The Last Airbender. Maybe Aang in the Spirit World? Zuko as an old man? This episode has to do with the past, so if we don’t get to see a previous character, I expect the episode to possibly focus on Korra’s “past”.
