Tenzin's arc in Book 2

It’s the Book where it’s Tenzin’s turn to be the student, and that is bloody brilliant!

Stay through until the end!


Tenzin seems to learn a slight lesson of sorts every episode he’s in this book.

K201 - He gives Korra the much needed space that Pema suggested he give her in K104. Even though she is acting up, he respects her wishes.

K203 and K204 -  Tenzin reconciles the past with his siblings and learns to value them more for who they are. He also learns about loving despite the shortcomings of others from Ikki when they have the baby bison tea party.

K205 - Tenzin shows Menlo how to train the lemurs Tenzin-style. This works wonders, but reminds Tenzin how unhappy this way of teaching makes himself, AND the student.

K209 - (speculation) Jinora will end up teaching Tenzin how to see the spirits. His mind will be opened up to the joy and innocence in seeing the unseen and imagination. Both are things Tenzin is seriously lacking in.


Tenzin will realize not only how much he has to learn from others, but that this whole time, Aang himself has been teaching him through his descendants!!

He is learning forgiveness, love, freedom, innocence, peace, imagination and eventually, BALANCE.

So the next time you hate on Book 2, Bryke, or Legend of Korra as a whole, look around. This is fan-fucking-tastic show!

It’s Bolin you guys, you GUYS it’s Bo, not Mako, I thought it was Mako, but then I looked over at the concept art for Book 2 and realized it’s so Bolin, look you can see the obvious Bo turtle duck hair and the jacket he’s wearing, the hood around his neck, omg please tell me I am not the only one who sees this?

EDIT: Makos jacket stops to high IMO to be him

I have officially jumped ship and left the S.S. Makorra. Now, I have built my own ship named the S.S. Korra, where Korra is the greatest single bitch ever and needs no man.

Feel free to come aboard. Thus is the unsinkable ship. Haters cannot hate because they know deep down that our ship will be more cannon than any other ship this world has ever known.


So, can we add this to the list of things that have been said in ATLA/LOK that eventually ended up becoming true, one way or another (whether it’s foreshadowing, or just a neat little coincidence)?

  • “You can’t fight firebenders with fun” –> they fight the Fire Nation with fun
  • “Well then, maybe you should have waterbended us out of the ice.” –> Kartara waterbends the Gaang away from rocks in “Bato of the Water Tribe
  • “And this is Katara, my flying sister.” –> Katara uses one of the Mechanist’s gliders in “The Northern Air Temple” to “fly” in a sense
  • “Like we’ll ever see Jeong Jeong again.” –> They see him during Sozin’s Comet

  • Sokka’s comment about knocking on the Firelord’s door to see if anyone’s home –> The day of Black Sun Part 1

  • Azula’s comment about the Dai Li’s tardiness, and the possibility of being assassinated –> the red Lotus assassinates the Earth Queen 
  • “ These hooligans are part of an anarchist cell that my agents have been tracking for weeks. “ –> The Red Lotus are an actual anarchist cell
  • “If you listen to them [the Gaang] you’re playing right into your own destruction.” –> The Earth Queen does exactly that in LOK Book 3, but with the Red Lotus
  • “Last time I checked, humans can’t fly.” –> Zaheer
