By making Mako the only person in the whole episode going OMG KORRA KORRA WHERE IS KORRA YOU YOU KNOW WHERE THEY’RE KEEPING HER WHERE IS SHE HEY CHIEF DID YOU SENSE KORRA KORRA OMG GIVE HER SOME SPACE KORRA OMG I WAS SO WORRIED while everyone else is stone-faced and even cracking jokes and talking about relationship woes,
YOU MAKE IT SO EVERYONE ELSE’S RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT WITH KORRA AND GENERAL CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT ARE COMPLETELY UNDERMINED AND TOSSED OUT THE DAMN WINDOW.
Disclaimer: Last week’s episode was pretty awesome in many respects. I love the living hell out of this series for so many reasons. But I’m also the type of person who also picks apart the things she loves, because I’m critical and I like to love the things I do not just in squeemode but in analytical-how-could-this-be-better mode. So here we go. My big, huge, stupid beef with “Out of the Past.” Ragemode activated.
