The Legend of Korra drew to a close last week with a series finale chock-full of drama, suspense, sacrifice, and last-ditch heroics. And then, when the dust had settled, something truly wonderful happened. Of all the things that happened during the final half-hour of The Legend of Korra , one thing stands apart: That final shot of Korra and Asami holding hands, heading off together to the Spirit World, clearly in love. Did that really just happen? Was it intentional? According to the show's creators, it was indeed intentional, and the pairing of Korra and Asami was something they'd been working on for a while now.
Throughout The Legend of Korra , the series seemed to be setting up Avatar Korra with her on again-off again boyfriend, Mako. Though he had communication issues and could be a little stoic, he had a protective and gentle heart. After several break-ups and even more hurt feelings, the pair finally called it quits for good. They loved each other, but it just wasn't working out. Over the next few years, a dark horse romance came out of that heartbreak: Korra and Asami.
As a child living in the Southern Water Tribe, Korra finds a polar bear dog cub which has become separated from its pack in a storm. After Korra names it Naga, Katara convinces Korra's parents, Tonraq and Senna, to allow her to keep Naga, believing that Korra has found her animal guide. Katara trains Korra in waterbending outside of her family's hut in the Southern Water Tribe. In the Southern Water Tribe , Tonraq and Senna watch as Katara teaches Korra the importance of slow and calm movements in waterbending during a training session. Eager to demonstrate her abilities, Korra covers Katara in a blanket of snow, prompting Senna to apologize and remark that her daughter does not understand her strength. Katara reassures Senna that she is fine, noting that she has battled more dangerous waterbenders and that the Avatar will learn to control her abilities in time.
Like, seconds after, because the first thing you see is Korra and Asami stepping through the newly-created portal into the spirit world for their well-deserved vacation. The creation of a new portal to the spirit world in the heart of Republic City leads to anger from both spirits who are sick of humans trying to encroach on their world and the city including shady businessmen, who see the portal as a new way to exploit people for money. While it falls into the larger themes Korra covered in the past—specifically the ones starring Amon and Zaheer—the new story DiMartino establishes in Turf Wars feels like a logical continuation of where the show left off, rather than a shoehorned expansion of a story that had reached a solid conclusion. But while it also spends a lot of time establishing a new arc for Korra and her friends to go on, it spends just as much time examining the relationship between Korra and Asami that fans have been dying to see ever since the show came to an end. Another thing that feels wonderfully familiar about Turf War is its art. Irene Koh strikes an excellent balance between feeling familiar to the style of the TV show while also being a bit more relaxed and loose, giving the book its own sense of style.
