‘The Legend of Korra’ Season 2 Episode 7 Lead-in: ‘Beginnings Part 1′
Our second 2-part episode from The Legend of Korra season 2 airs Friday night, and it looks like we’ll be in for a bit of an origin story.
At the end of “The Sting,” Korra washed up on shore, apparently suffering from memory loss after her battle with the spirit monster. Thankfully, Unalaq and his wacky children both think that Korra is dead. So, perhaps, Korra can recover in time before Unalaq has a chance to unleash whatever wild scheme he’s up to.
As far as schemes go, I’m still curious to know what Varrick’s involvement in this whole civil war is? Is it purely financial? He’s played an interesting gambit since leaving the Southern Water Tribe, apparently staging a bombing in Republic City and now taking a controlling share in Asami’s family business. Varrick has also setup Bolin as the moving picture hero, Nuktuk.
Has Varrick been in league with Unalaq all along or is some other mastermind controlling this entire mystery cabal? Right now, he appears to simply be a capitalist puppeteer, profiting off of war. But after Mako’s revelation, I’ve got to believe now that his involvement in the greater plot is more than just financial… especially if you add on that evil smile he gave Mako at the end of “The Sting.”
Mako’s got a few other issues to deal with, besides exposing Varrick’s diabolical deeds. Asami kissed him so we may be in for a bit of a love triangle with Avatar Korra off in the land of lost memories. Once Korra gets her memory back, she’s going to have some choice words and bending rage for Mako when she finds out about the kiss. Mako may also have to answer to the police for staging his own sting operation. And if Make didn’t have enough to worry about with his professional and love life, he’s also got to worry about Bolin’s growing “Nuktuk” ego.
This new clip from The Legend of Korra Episode 2.7, shows a spiritual healer helping to cleanse the darkness from Korra’s spirit. The healer is a fire bender. I’m hoping if it’s someone related to Aang’s past.
