Legend of Korra Episode 10 ‘Turning the Tides’ Recap

Episode 10 of The Legend of Korra titled ‘Turning the Tides’ was a bit more simplistic than past episodes – until the end. It contained the common theme of Good vs. Evil: Equalists attacked Republic City and it was up to the Avatar and her friends to help save the people. The theme was certainly present throughout the episode’s entirety, but what made the episode exciting was the element of surprise at the very end.

Episode 10 starts off by showing Korra eating with Mako, Bolin, Asami, Tenzin and his family. Korra tells the gang everything she encountered while being held captive: Tarrlock is the son of Yacone and Amon took Tarrlock’s bending away.

Afterwards, we see Tenzin asking Lin Bei Fong to stay and protect his family while he leaves Air Temple Island for a short excursion. Lin agrees and Tenzin travels to meet with the Chief Officer. Upon his arrival, Tenzin is informed that the Equalists have attacked and captured the rest of the Council Members. This essentially leaves Tenzin in control of Republic City.

When Tenzin leaves the vicinity along with the Chief Officer and his men, they are all attacked by Equalist Mech-Machines. The Chief Officer and his men are eventually captured, leaving Tenzin and a few others to fend for themselves. Tenzin fights off the Equalists for some time, but he is ultimately defeated in the end.

Legend of Korra Season Finale Title, Air Date and Trailer

Because the first season of The Legend of Korra is almost over, the air date and title of the last 2 remaining episodes have been revealed.

  • Episode 11 will be titled ‘Skeleton in the Closet’
  • Episode 12 will be titled ‘End Game’

Just to clarify, even though the season finale of The Legend of Korra will air in two weeks, Episode 10 will still air next week. For some reason, there was some confusion about that, but hopefully this clears everything up.

We don’t have a clip of Episode 10 just yet, but we do have a short trailer of the season finale. The season finale will be a one hour special that will air both Episode 11 ‘Skeleton in the Closet’ and Episode 12 ‘End Game’ together.

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.

Dry Spell Discussion & Funny ‘Legend of Korra’ Animation

Despite the fact that we haven’t had a new The Legend of Korra episode in more than a week, the massive load of recently leaked Korra news has served as a nice substitute. We learned the title of the 8th episode of The Legend of Korra. We analyzed a leaked picture and found the setting of the 8th episode. And we even dug up the title of the 9th episode of The Legend of Korra thanks to the XFinity television guide.

By the way, all of this news surfaced early last week.

It is now the Tuesday of our second week without The Legend of Korra and we have just hit a dry spell of relevant news. But I guess it makes sense when you find the title of, not one, but two future Korra episodes within a span of several days (That’s not normal).

However, a dry spell is not going to keep me from entertaining avid Korra fans. So I present to you the Avatar version of good old fashion humor. Please enjoy this animated clip I found that pokes fun at an already entertaining scene in The Legend of Korra (Hit ‘Read More’ to see it).

Dante Basco: Second Season of ‘Legend of Korra’ Currently in the Works

In an interview with Crave Online, Dante Basco (voice of Zuko) slipped some more details on the current production status of The Legend of Korra. When asked what was “going on” with The Legend of Korra, Basco was not shy to reveal the current status of the popular series:

We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.

Now this is very interesting because The Legend of Korra is currently at its cross roads of destiny. The second season only has 14 episodes planned, and with 2-3 episodes already finished, Mike and Bryan will need to decide whether they want to extend The Legend of Korra, or end the series at season two.

This is not the first time Mike and Bryan have had to decide whether or not to extend The Legend of Korra. The series was actually already extended once: It was initially only going to be a mini-series, but it was later extended to two seasons.

Ultimately, the fate of the show is in the hands of the creators. We’ll just have to wait and see what they decide to do and learn to live with it. But let’s just be happy that Dante Basco has confirmed season two’s production as well as his role in the season. And based on what Basco is saying, I can’t wait to see how this season ends.

‘The Legend of Korra’ Episode 3: ‘The Revelation’ Description Released

20120519-005957.jpg

We have officially confirmed that the 3rd episode of ‘The Legend of Korra’ will be know as ‘The Revelation’. Here is a brief synopsis of the episode:

Korra attempts to learn more about the Equalist movement through infiltration.

The first two episodes did an excellent job in introducing the characters and the new Avatar World. This episode will likely focus more on the season’s plot, and by the look of the trailers, I feel that Amon will be a focal point.
