This is one of my absolute favourite shots of the Krew in the whole show because it just proves how fucking dorky they all are. They totally choreographed this whole thing, waiting for Korra to sass Tarrlok until he storms off and then march into frame like her merry men and strike a pose, perfectly framed behind their commander and chief.
I could watch a whole book of the krew just doing this sort of dorky shit.
It is seriously amazing Asami didn’t have more trust issues, she’s had blow after blow in Book 1, first with her father and then with Mako. The thing is, other characters in her position would have taken this as a reason to jump into the dark side, it would be a flimsy reason and one more fueled by hurt and spite, and LBH that’s the catalyst for a some of ‘friends to enemy’ stories, but not Asami.
It just speaks to her moral strength that she didn’t allow herself to consider joining her father and that at the end of the day she was willing to let Mako go, forgive him, and still remain his friend.
