I thought it was ridiculous. It just made it too easy for her. I didn't feel sorry for her when she got it taken away either......based on her previous behavior, I was like karma's a bitch. But then she gets it back by crying......Aang was a little too helpful in my opinion.
They should have drawn it out more.......I just thought it was a dumb ending and very pathetic rewarding her like that. I just feel it made her look like she couldn't survive without bending. Better it should have been prolonged.....she would actually have to learn how to bend, and it wouldn't be like it used to where the bending just came naturally.
A tad to much is quite a frickin' understatement. It is plain garbage. She cried. That's it. She cried, and for some reason this was enough to make Aang come back from the dead and give her her bending back. She did not have to do much sincere work to get it back. I though it was quite cheap and lazy on the creators' part. Aang had to work so hard to achieve his goals but Korra, everything is handed to her on a silver platter. No sacrifice, no development. And it sucks because they had the perfect opportunity to give her that but they just for some reason did not take it and just left her as the bland ungrateful character she is.
It felt like a cop-out to me. I was actually pretty disappointed with how easy it was. I was also a little annoyed with Lin getting her bending back (hear me out)- we didn't see how she was dealing with it, we never really even saw her until the near end and when Korra gave it back.
It feels too simple. I wanted it to leave a mark, I wanted to see how people cope with the loss of their bending and learning new skills. It makes it look like benders can't live without their bending- therefore makes them look completely dependent on it (like I said, I just want to see character development evolve out of this.) Plus, having Korra receive this large amount of power without really working for it really bothers me- she only meditated once, and she didn't work at her spirituality like she could have. And when she went into the Avatar State she was in control, while Aang didn't have control. It was just a weak ending. ..It feels like the entire point of season 1 was lost. Why lose your bending only to get it back a few episodes or, in Korra's case, minutes later?
Call me a nit-pick, I just feel a little cheated when it comes to that.
Well original Korra was only going to have one season so the fastness of the whole season was because of that, so getting it taken away and getting it back all in one wasn’t that much. Think about it this way say the show didn’t get good ratings (I know hard to believe) and having the show end with her cry, having lost three of the elements, no resolution what so ever with all the relationships, and we still didn’t know who Amon was and then Nick didn’t give them a second season and we would have never know what would have happen, that is why it seems like it went so fast and was tad too much.
