i think for me, its the sudden radical change to the mythos. too many changes in only one episode. but makorra and boleska are dead, so there’s those two silver linings.
you’re definitely right about that. as much as i enjoyed the changes, there were certainly too many for only 2 episodes. the avatarverse rules were bent because of harmonic convergence. korra is now the last avatar that we are familiar with and the new avatar that we will come to know in books 3 and 4. but these changes might have been too radical; it’s almost as if we are no longer watching avatar anymore.

Decided shortage of Asami was part of it, and kind of a predictable plot, too.
asami not being there really bothers me, but not enough to detract from everything else. i’m too used to this by now.
maybe it is the predictable plot. i sort of expected the deus ex machinas and, when they came, i couldn’t even be happy for them. yeah, it’s great that korra managed to defeat vaatu, but she did so in a way that cannot be explained. this inner spirit bull shit, while it certainly did wonders for korra’s character, was totally an asspull. why must every season finale be subjected to these things?? can’t we have a finale that makes sense for once??

Cuz the overall series was meh? No matter how good some parts were, I can’t forget how awful the bad parts were. I built up little to no excitement, so I just whatever by the end.
but, as i said earlier, i was able to forgive the series after episode 10. that was a fantastically written episode, personally. it made me forget how bad everything else was.
the finale couldn’t do the same. maybe it’s because all the problems were amplified and then excused? many loose ends were left unattended. korra got her character development, but at the price of everyone else besides tenzin.
moreover, jinora really had a chance to shine in this finale. instead, we got her pulling mORE deus ex machinas so that korra could save the day. and the reason for such is NEVER EXPLAINED.
i am not satisfied.
