Book 1 - Book 3
Oh how they’ve grown!
Jinora, come forward. Today we welcome the first airbending master in a generation, and I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter. When the existence of our people was threatened, when the avatar’s life hung in the balance, Jinora never gave up hope. Thanks to her leadership, I see a very bright future for the air nation. Of course there would be no air nation without avatar Korra. She opened the portals and somehow the world began anew for us, and she was even willing to lay down her own life in order to protect ours. There’s no way we can ever repay her for all she’s done, but we can follow her example of service and sacrifice. So while she recuperates, the air nation will reclaim its nomadic roots and roam the earth. But unlike our ancestors, we will serve people of all nations, working wherever there is corruption and discord, to restore balance and peace. Avatar Korra, I vow that we will do everything in our power to follow in your footsteps and bring harmony to the world. Now, let us anoint the master who will help lead us in our new path. Master Jinora.

There was this one scene that was incredibly heartbreaking to me. In the finale, Bryke includes one small shot of a terribly, beaten up Tenzin turning around to look at the wreckage of the Air Temple.
Everyone talks about Korra’s broken spirit, but at this moment, it is apparent that Tenzin’s spirit is broken as well. All his life he was taught to believe that he was the sole predecessor to his father’s culture and legacy.
During the season, he gained hope. He believed that he was finally rebuilding the Air Nation again. All he wanted to do was make his father proud.
But, this scene…when the castle falls apart in front of his eyes, you can just see the shame in his eyes, and the despair in his frown. He probably felt that he had failed his father.
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start
There is only one god and his name is death.
There are so many things I like about these few seconds of the conclusion of the finale. First, Korra is just so beat down and at the mention of the RL, you know she’s going to think back about all the terrible things that happened and she obviously has nightmares judging from the bags under her eyes. And when the MOST OBNOXIOUS PRESIDENT
IHATEYOURAIKO is all, ‘good job gold star welcome back after i BANISHED you and i don’t even apologize’, I just want to cut him. And then Korra looks down and you know she doesn’t want to respond. She doesn’t want the praise or pity. That hurts to see. Seriously. And then Asami looks down at her and I am just so happy that their friendship has gotten so strong after these past three seasons. You can tell that Asami is her best friend in ways that Mako and Bolin could never be. And she wants to be there for her and not let anyone hurt her. IT HURTS. She wants to be able to make her feel better and bring her out of this awful situation she’s in.
And then you have Ikki who has been immature and selfish in the past, but she’s grown so much even though we haven’t seen her development that much. I feel like children have a certain emotional connection to people in the sense that they can sense when someone needs a little boost and Ikki just wants to do whatever to help Korra happy and make things easier for her.
AND THEN MEELO. He just really makes me happy that he’s so eager to be with Korra. Obviously, each of the airbending babies have different connections with her, but Meelo’s moment with Korra was so sweet. I know a lot of people have commented on the way that Korra lights up and smiles for him and I feel like it’s genuine of her. Meelo’s the type of boy who will make you smile no matter if it’s intentional or not. Korra needs that little bit of sunshine and I’m so so extremely happy that Bryke included this.
Poor Jinora omg
I don’t know who makes me cry more - Korra or Tonraq
A woman’s strength isn’t just about how much she can handle before she breaks. It’s also about how much she must handle after she’s broken.
