Legend of Korra Book 2 Episode Speculation: The Festival

This is a series in which I speculate episodes of Book 2 of The Legend of Korra based on the Comic-Con pictures. I will do separate articles that intertwine chronologically to create my own, speculative story.

It’s already been confirmed that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will open up with a festival scene in the Southern Watertribe. But when you first lay eyes on the Watertibe, you’ll notice that it’ll look exceptionally different from when we last fully saw it in The Last Airbender. The fact is that the Avatar World has changed quite a bit in the last 70 years, and the Southern Watertribe isn’t an exception.

On with the speculation:

In the first picture, we see some sort of carnival game-booth that basically confirms the event to be some sort of festival or celebration. Book 2 takes place 6 months after the conclusion of Book 1, and Avatar Korra has likely returned to the Southern Watertribe for the first time in a while provided that her new home is indeed Republic City. This leads me to believe that the festival will most likely be something of a “welcome home” party for Korra.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Release Date Prediction

As the title says, this article is merely a prediction piece. This is simply how I would perceive the Nickelodeon Network to act when it comes to strategically airing The Legend of Korra. None of these assumptions are necessarily confirmed.

Update: Possible Legend of Korra Book 2 release date found.

In case you are unaware, Networks base their Television Schedules on one thing: money. They research trends and data to find the best shows for specific times of the year. The Legend of Korra is a special show for Nickelodeon because it’s one of the Network’s biggest series’, and thus, their biggest source of profit. When The Legend of Korra airs, Nickelodeon has a massive spike in viewers, many of which are not necessarily avid Nick fans. And because of this, Nickelodeon’s ratings as a whole sky rocket causing an influx of potential advertisers who are willing to pay a lot of money to have their commercial aired.

That’s why Nickelodeon ordered 2 more Books of The Legend of Korra, they know how valuable the series is to the Network. And now that DirecTV has dropped the Network (causing a 20% dip in ratings), Nickelodeon will need to ensure that their highest rated series, The Legend of Korra, is aired strategically to boost the Network’s ratings to the highest degree.

That being said, the only way to efficiently predict when Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will air is to research and find the best times for Nickelodeon to have a massive influx in viewers as a whole. Once we find the appropriate time slot, we find a potential air date.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Speculation: Flashbacks

This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. We have currently covered speculation on the book’s setting, character development and villain. Today we focus on the book’s flashbacks.

One of my favorite things about Book 1 of The Legend of Korra was the multitude of flashbacks throughout the season. Not only did they develop the plot line in ways I’ve never seen before, but they also reintroduced the Old Team Avatar in a way that simply felt nostalgic. Flashbacks have proven to be both entertaining and informative thus far, so when I read that Mike and Bryan plan on having them in Book 2, I was ecstatic.

The reading I referred to was an IGN interview with the cast and creators. In that interview, Mike DiMartino confirmed the use of flashbacks in Book 2 and gave a little insight on them too:

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Speculation: The Villain

This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. We have currently covered speculation on the book’s setting and character development. Today we focus on the book’s villain.

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Mike and Bryan revealed a lot of information regarding Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. One of the major reveals was the identity of the book’s villain: The Dark Spirit, who will be voiced by Grey DeLisle, the voice actress of Azula.

Despite the fact that we know little about this future antagonist, we can certainly speculate (and most likely confirm) that this new antagonist will be a spirit residing in the Spirit World. One important factor we cannot confirm, however, is the threat level of this new villain. In case you are unfamiliar, the threat level is essentially how threatening or dangerous a villain is to society.

So far, every villain created by Mike and Bryan has been a threat to society. Ex-Fire Lord Ozai had an entire Nation fighting with him while he tried to take over the entire Avatar World. Amon used his power of taking bending away as leverage in order to gain support as he tried to eliminate benders in Republic City.

So how exactly is The Dark Spirit a threat to society?

Why Toph’s Husband could be The Duke

One of the major plot points not answered in the season finale of The Legend of Korra: Book 1 was the identity of Lin Bei Fong’s father or Toph’s husband. We knew how Aang and Katara got together and we assumed that Sokka and Suki got together, but what about poor Toph? Surely she must have at least had some sort of relationship, right?

Well she did, and we have reason to believe that her (lone?) relationship was with The Duke. Before I get into that whole thing called “evidence”, I wanted to provide just a tad bit of background information on The Duke in case you may have forgotten about him.

The Duke is of Earth Kingdom nationality and he joined the Freedom Fighters when he was caught stealing food from them. According to Jet, The Duke never had a home so it is assumed that he is an orphan. So how does an Earth Kingdom Orphan end up with a wealthy, Earth Bending prodigy? I’ll show you.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Speculation: The Setting

This is a series where we speculate everything there is to know about Book 2 of The Legend of Korra. Today we focus on the stories setting.

So how will Book 2 of The Legend of Korra pan out? I personally feel that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra won’t be as much focused in Republic City as Book 1 was. And if this is the case, I’ll be ecstatic. It’s not that I have something against Republic City, I personally though that the idea of a steam-punked city in the Avatar World was fantastic. But Mike and Bryan have shown us a lot of the new city, and in case you may have forgotten, there is much more to the Avatar World than Republic City.

Whatever happened to Ba Sing Se and the Earth Kingdom? Or the Western Air Temple? Only Mike and Bryan know how the rest of the Avatar World has changed in so many years, and I’d be pretty intrigued to see it for myself.

I have pretty much made up my mind that The Last Airbender is a better series than The Legend of Korra (In my opinion of course). The one thing The Legend of Korra lacked that The Last Airbender had was the element of adventure. In The Last Airbender, Team Avatar went on so many different adventures, literally traveling the entire world. I personally felt that the constantly changing setting was quite refreshing. Unfortunately, in Book 1 of The Legend of Korra, Korra traveled to Republic City, then…no where else.
