another ridiculously long and complicated theory
Part one of a massive, far-reaching Homestuck theory I’ve been spending way too much time on under the cut! Seriously, this half alone is like 2000 words. What even is my life.
I ask myself three questions about the most recent flash and attempt to answer them. Topics range from Vriska to dream bubbles to hero classes. Also, there are pictures! Don’t read this if you haven’t read up to the most recent pages.
Guess what? It’s not just Korra that I theorize over.
Massive, far-reaching, outlandish ideas about the plot of Homestuck under the cut! Be warned: huge spoilers all the way up to the update posted a few hours ago.
Short “Turning the Tides” Theory
I wrote a theory on episodes ten through twelve last weekend, and based on the new clips we’ve gotten, I’d like to make a few minor revisions to it. Read that first if you want this to make sense, please!
I originally assumed that Korra would be heading to the Southern Water Tribe for some reason involving an information hunt, but now that we know Air Temple Island is getting raided by chiblockers in this episode, I’m going to revise that and say that she flees to her home to escape Amon’s initial attack at the urging of her friends, who may or may not come with her.
The battle in the finale, which I thought would be defensive on United Republic’s end and offensive on the Equalists’ end, is actually the opposite. Amon will take over the city in THIS episode, and the finale battle will be an attempt to reclaim it, with Korra aiding in the attack. The rest of my theory from that point on still stands, though the Air Temple Island scenes may be much earlier.
That’s all! Thanks for reading.
Breaking Free of Bloodbending: An Analysis on Amon
Thus far in ATLA and LOK, we’ve seen people escape from bloodbending three times - Katara in The Puppetmaster, and both Aang and Amon in Out of the Past. From these times, we can conclude that there are at least two confirmed ways to escape the hold of a bloodbender.
Note: this is written in support of the theory I wrote last night, so it’s probably a good idea to read that first.
Lok Theories after Episode Nine
So, we saw the first images from the finale today! You can find the trailer here.
Theories about “Turning the Tides”, “Skeletons in the Closet”, “Endgame”, bloodbending, Amon, and the Avatar Spirit itself under the cut.
An Analysis of the Flashbacks
As of this morning’s episode, I think I’ve been able to piece together what happened 42 years prior to the events of The Legend of Korra.
Amon and his Financial Backing
So it turned out I was at least partially wrong about episode seven, thanks to that second preview clip. Oh well!
Here, have an Amon theory post.
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.
Amon’s Master Plan
I’ve been doing some pretty intense thinking about what Amon’s potential goals are, lately - particularly during the times when I’m supposed to be doing work for school - and I think I might have come up with a reasonable theory.
The first time we saw Amon in the show, he was telling the Lieutenant that it was time to “accelerate [their] plans”. We know that he has a strategy, and as of “A Voice in the Night”, we know it ends with him personally taking down the Avatar. But while most people have guessed that he has some kind of massive plan to remove bending abilities from every person on the planet, my idea is different.
