Things I Love About LoK

Goal: Write 1 thought every day re: why I love The Legend of Korra until I finish rewatching the series.

#18: Bolin assumes Korra is a waterbender in “A Leaf in the Wind.”

With all the heavy (but interesting) themes introduced in “Welcome to Republic City,” it’s a relief to see the humor injected back into the series in “A Leaf in the Wind.”  My favorite exchange in the episode is the one where Bolin assumes Korra is a waterbending gal, in part because P.J. Byrne’s delivery as Bolin has great comedic timing:

Bolin: Yeah, I could show you the basics. I’m just not sure how my Earthbending would translate to your Waterbending. But we’ll figure it out.

Korra: Won’t be a problem. I’m actually an Earthbender.

Korra’s posture here is all pride and swagger:

Bolin: I’m sorry, no, no. I didn’t mean to assume. Cause I, ya know, I was just figuring, with your Water Tribe getup… that you are… a water tribe… gal.

It’s a hilarious line because it highlights the absurdity of people from each nation wearing a certain style (and color) of clothing, and also mimics the real-life awkwardness of making assumptions.  Just smart writing, in my book.  It also further adds to Korra’s characterization:  she is a bender, and that’s who she is.

anonymous asked:

Is Boroh (Bolin/Iroh II) something to be considered?

We established that Iroh II is way, way, way, way, way, way older than those kids didn’t we
