* Despite having been royally screwed over by the higher-ups with an episode's worth of budget cut, Bryke and their team still managed to make the best of the situation with RecapEpisode "Remembrances.

** We can now throw in the numerous allusions to historic examples of oppression: the RedScare with [=McCarthy=]-like tactics, the internment camps for Japanese during WorldWarII, and Hitler's subjugation of the Jews.

* The third season finale, "Venom of the Red Lotus", is the 100th episode of the ''Avatar'' series, and while other Nickelodeon shows have hit that milestone before, they've only been the two-15-minute-episodes variety (Rugrats, Fairly Oddparents, and Spongebob come to mind first). ''Avatar'' is a serialized action-adventure epic, not the usual fare for the First Kid's Network, and certainly not something you'd expect to get a solid hundred episodes, with 13 more still yet to come!

And to top it all off? "Venom of the Red Lotus" has been praised by fans and critics as one of the best finales in the entire franchise, and the episode managed to win a prominent Annie Award in Outstanding Storyboarding.

* This [[http://www.vanityfair.com/vf-hollywood/2014/12/korra-series-finale-recap-gay-asami article]] gives an insightful and beautiful description of how and why ''The Legend of Korra'' is one of the first cartoons to show the things most TV shows, animated or live-action, don't always do, and even when done, usually not very well: Racial representation without diving into stereotypes and StockAesop; Accurate depictions of realistically body positive females; {{Badass}} women who can still be vulnerable, aren't over-sexualized, and aren't over-exaggerated for either being too girly or too tomboyish; The complexity of differing political views and religion; [[PositiveDiscrimination No agenda of showing that "only girls are awesome", but both genders can be equally as awesome]]. And probably the most significant impact: The portrayal, if subtle one, of two women (Korra and Asami) of different races becoming an OfficialCouple.

* The announcement that the creators are going to be working on a Korra comic series, which will feature explicit confirmation of Korrasami. Good luck keeping those AntiShippingGoggles in place now.

* AwesomeMusic: The show has ''nothing but''. Only the first season has had a soundtrack released, but fan demand for more was so great that [[DoingItForTheArt the composers released several sought-after tracks for free]].
** The finale takes this UpToEleven. The tracks that play during Korra and Kuvira's final confrontation, Mako's almost-sacrifice and the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pcxrdP3ums final scene]] are among the best in the entire series.
** Regardless of your [[LoveItOrHateIt opinions of season 2]], there's no denying the majestic serenity that is [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWT5uHzAFIg Jinora's Light.]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28YkftN9Lo8 On the Lam]], the main combat music for season 1. A blood-pumping, fast-paced jam that sounds like a Swing Jazz band got in a scrap with some Chinese street performers.
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwPCd1D2tZA Red Lotus Theme]]. Appropriate that the scariest antagonists get the most CreepyAwesome theme in the series. Starting out slow and menacing, building in intimidation, until the percussion kicks in and you know these psychos aren't messing around. And here's a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5_HH8_HT30 metal cover]] that preserves the scares in a different way.
** The finale music tracks really ramp up the urgency and threat that the Colossus poses. In particular, the almost savage-sounding fight track of Korra vs Kuvira accentuates the brutal no-holds-barred battle between the two.
