Justique notes that characters are driven by obligation in The Legend of Korra, while destiny was the dominant motivator in Avatar: The Last Airbender. How this leads us to a Courtney Stodden shoutout is unclear, but it does.
Both Nick and Fawn desperately want to know the identities of the mother and grandfather General Iroh mentions to Korra in Peacekeepers. Will they be Zuko and his daughter? Or Uncle Iroh and Mei? Or some totally different combination?!? Also, Fawn thinks the painterly backgrounds in The Legend of Korra rock.
We tried to watch Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure for this episode, but promptly gave up after a couple of annoying songs. Still, we briefly discuss the film’s themes and animation style before we turn our attention back to The Legend of Korra and Eska’s runny makeup.
After the end theme, we name the winners of our From Up On Poppy Hill giveaway. And we’ve got a surprise — we’re giving away two copies of the DVD! One copy goes to Angela Capel for her thoughtful interpretation of the themes in Spirited Away. The other one goes to Link, who chose My Neighbor Totoro but really won for his hilarious descriptions of other anime films.
NEXT: The Legend of Korra: Book 2 episodes 6-8 (The Sting, Beginnings Pt. 1, and Beginnings Pt. 2) and the spooky Mexican folktale, La Leyenda de la Llorona.
