Did anyone NOT see that breakup coming?
Fuck Korra, all of season 2 (and near the end of Seaso 1) she’s been a pain. Shes thinks everyone is against her but the only person who is truly against her is herself. She takes everything personal and really hurts everyone who loves her. She is too immature to deserve a boyfriend, let alone be the avatar. On the same note, Mako ruined the mission, Team avatar’s only intention to returning to Republic City…so I can understand her anger. While we are on the subject of Mako..he is a terrible person. Falling in love with Asami because of her good looks and then breaking her heart and his brothers by stealing Korra from Bolin after he fell in love with her because of her personality. He doesn’t deserve her just as much and she doesn’t deserve him.
First off, have you ever been a teenage girl before? You think the world’s against you A LOT of the time. Everyone’s the bad guy and you get mad at the drop of a hat while struggling to understand your place in the world and how you affect it. Korra is in the same exact boat right now. She’s trying to find her place, and on top of that she’s the Avatar. That will make things worse. The Avatar has to be the bridge between the spirit world and the living world, has to master all four bending techniques, and act as a mediator between clashing parties, using the tools best suited to bring peace. Aside from that, the people that love her have kept her from becoming her own person because they feel they’ve been doing what they think is best for her.
Being a budding adult it’s hard to prove that you make a difference, that you’re mature enough to handle adult situations without parental supervision or guidance. At 17, you think you can do everything and no one should be there to hold your hand. You’re independent. At the same time, Korra still has a lot to learn and experiences to be had. She needs to take the time to grow up some. As a native from the Southern Water tribe, Korra has the spirit of a warrior. She attacks things head-on and doesn’t prefer to take a more passive approach, like Aang. The two are vastly different people and their personalities reflect that. Those surrounding her want her to be more like Aang and what they’re doing is impossible. Filling someone’s shoes is completely different than making the person be exactly like their predecessor. You might as well make a clone. Keeping the Avatar shielded while raising her and training her will only work for so long, and even then will sow seeds of resentment.
As for Mako, Mako is doing the absolute best he can and feels overwhelmed by the power of being so close to the Avatar. He probably feels helpless because he doesn’t know what to do or how to help. Plus girlfriends are very complex creatures. Period. That never helps. He needs time to grow up as well. Aside from Asami, Korra is Mako’s first girlfriend, as he is her first boyfriend. Not all first relationships work out well. He is not necessarily a bad person. There is a lack of development, yes, but that doesn’t make him bad. As things stand right now, a relationship might not be a good idea.
Oh, and for the record, since it seems you can’t stand Korra or Mako, or anything else that’s been going on, make it easier on yourself and stop watching.
Holy shit, you guys just created a new level of intellectual debates about Korra.
Who cares if he/she is a teenage girl C.T…that doesn’t matter. Your making it seem like Korra’s actions are justified because she is a teenage girl, and that is how they all teenage girls act . Not every teenage girl behaves like Korra. And judging from your comment, I infer that you are one of those teenage girls that do.
Oh, and for the record.. just because he/she doesn’t like the way Korra and Mako’s relationship is being developed, doesn’t mean he/she has to stop watching the show.
When someone’s review of the way a show is being developed doesn’t match with yours, you jump on the opportunity to attack. Just chill out and realize that not everyone is a teenage girl who watches this show, so there is bound to be people who dislike certain aspects of this show.
The whole damn plot of this is really Korra is against Herself.
Is this a essay? It’s a CARTOON, bloody hell.
i think everyone saw it coming……
I’ll be honest: i thought they’d drag it out for a few more episodes. At least pretend like it wasn’t a foregone conclusion that they’re gonna reset Korra’s entire character…
i regret reading comments first

when does the next episode come out?
when do you think that episode 6 will be on the internet like according to the clock. if you dont know just say right out you dont know
cant wait for the next episode, just hope its more epic than this. this was like its just an answer to up how things will end up…… i guess (sorry if u did not understand a sh!!!t about that…. it tends to happen that people dont understand me)
I hate the voice of Zuko being used for his own son. Its so trivial ….
Good for you, no one cares.
Oh My God!!!!!! Why Why Why !!! Of course I didn´t wanted to see that one coming…it was sooo obvious but I hoped that they lasted at least a little longer ;(
everyone worrying about their relationship but seriously did korra just die?
if she did then there would be a new avatar and they would just end the season in 5 episodes so im guessing no
of course not, they wouldn’t end it like that.
I cant believe this show is still so terrible after the first season. i supported this shit, bought the dvd because i was sure it will get better after season 1.
And even though some storybits and this funny rich dudes make this kind of entertaining, it still sucks as a whole. Korra and mako are terrible characters. they get anti character development lol.
its just shit bring back aang i can rewatch that shit endlessly but korra..nope
i just love korra for me i just enjoy the drama as it unfolds
omg finaly someone i can agree with
Zuko’s voice actor!
I hate the voice of Zuko being used for his own son. Its so trivial
It’s his grandson…
There is a difference.
Iroh is Zuko’s grandson. Keep up.
ah … ok, thanks … i guess … I’m italian, maybe i dont get everything right
OMG ZUKO’S VOICE
DAMN I MISS THAT BADASS
She kicked over a table at his job and is constantly questioning him then is shocked he’s breaking up with her?!
Tenzin: I created a monster!!!!! ROFL!!!
Does anybody else think Korra is a little on the bipolar side?
okay. For the record im a teenage girl too. There’s a lot of teenage girls made into cartoons who act obnoxious. I mean who doesn’t remember the show “my life as a teenage robot?” the main character was a girl who had boy problems and boy did she think the world was against her. She even yelled at her parents and didn’t always trust them.
STILL! She wasn’t just straight-up hateful and she didn’t lash out and never say sorry. (she did lash out tho). She learned from her mistakes, and she didn’t always think about herself. So no, people don’t dislike her for her normal teenage girl self, they dislike her cause she a pain in the rump.
Is it really that shocking she got broken up with? He always listens to her and tries to be calm and then she storms in his job, blows his desk away, and causes a big scene. If I were in a situation like that (and a guy), I would break up with her too.
I loved Lin’s response to that breakup. She makes me miss Toph! Although this is a wonderful show, I can’t help but miss and feel entirely nostalgic over The Last Airbender and all of the lovely characters. It is not fair, however, to give this show negative ratings just because of that. The show itself is wonderful, has awesome characters, an epic storyline and a very, I repeat, VERY complex Avatar. P.S. If you miss ATA, read the comics! They continue the story and say what happens to Zuko’s mom! I won’t give any spoilers, but the comics are SO good. Here is a scan of The Search: Part 1, to get you started. http://www.mangahere.com/manga/avatar_the_last_airbender_the_search/c001/
i hate that they broke up..
