Speculation for “The Aftermath” and beyond
Based on the events of “And the Winner Is…”, the new clip, and the TV Guide summary; as well as the six unexplained scenes left from the trailers and the Republic City game.
Given that the title of the episode is “The Aftermath”, it’s almost certain that the primary plot will concern the main characters reacting to Amon’s attack on the arena, in various ways.
I can’t wait for the next episode of LOK.
Because most of the things people were unhappy about in this one - Korra being jealous of Asami, Bolin and Mako not noticing she wasn’t okay, Mako going on a nice little taxi ride while Korra was risking her life - are going to be followed by an episode that we now know is going to be about internal conflict among the Fire Ferrets.
They aren’t a proper team yet, guys! They only just met… we’re working with completely undeveloped characters here. Bolin and Mako are not nearly as good friends to Korra as Sokka and Katara were to Aang. Not even close. Next episode, we’re going to see all three of them grow and learn as people and teammates. I have absolutely no doubt that they’re going to be stressed over a match and one of the brothers is going to yell at Korra about how she’s stopped coming to practices, causing her to snap and yell at them for not noticing what she’s going through. And they’ll work things out by the end.
It’s going to be great.
