Yeah, she’s a natural at it.
See, THIS scene (and this episode) were awesome because they were great at setting up the idea that people learn in different ways; it also showed plainly that Korra does not have the mindset needed for proper airbending. Yet she was able to do fine in learning probending, which was about force and fighting and aggression. It was all consistent and logical and by the end of the episode, she actually APPLIED something she had learned, and both her and Tenzin apologized to each other for their mistakes, and it was all just brilliant — theming via symbolism/metaphor, character development, application of theming/’lesson’, reflection, and rounded interactions where no one looks like the ‘bad guy’ or ‘good guy’ but everyone’s just human.
THIS was brilliant, this was good stuff. Loved it, still do.
The finale? Not so much. The finale flopped where LoK’s opening episodes excelled.
Here’s hoping season 2 will have a more balanced setup with more episodes like this one.
