The Legend of Korra recovers from it’s clip show fiasco with two fantastic, plot-relevant episodes. As Kuvira’s weapon comes closer to completion, Korra is finally able to put her trauma behind her with help from an unlikely source. Meanwhile, the Beifongs pull off a daring rescue with the help of Toph.
The Legend of Korra delivers an executive-mandated clip show this week. While “Remembrances” doesn’t do anything to further the plot, clever commentary and humor elevate the otherwise recycled moments into something that doesn’t detract too terribly from the series.
The Legend of Korra has hit midseason, which means there’s a lot of housekeeping to do before the final confrontation. “The Battle of Zaofu” swiftly ends the Zaofu conflict and paves the way for a more serious face-off between Kuvira’s army and Korra and her allies. “Reunion” is a bit less relevant, but does the important work of reuniting Korra with her loved ones. With almost everyone back together, Korra can start working on the problem of Kuvira in earnest.
The Legend of Korra is moving right along with both Korra’s personal development and the development of Kuvira’s increasingly totalitarian nation. While the airbending kids go on a rescue mission to save Korra, the dark side of Kuvira’s mission becomes ever more apparent to Bolin and Varrick.
The Legend of Korra focuses back in on the goings on in Republic City in it’s most recent episode, while also jumping back to Korra’s lessons with Toph. As Korra tries and fails to recover under Toph’s regimen, Mako and Bolin clash over political ideologies at Prince Wu’s coronation day. With Kuvira making her intentions for the Earth Kingdom clear, “The Coronation” serves to set up the varying conflicts that will define Season 4.
The Legend of Korra‘s second episode of the season crafts the poignant tale of Korra’s recovery and disappearance. “Korra Alone” demonstrates the despair Korra feels at being isolated and useless while the world changes around her, while also offering a potential source of hope for her future.
