* Though Amon was defeated, Tarrlok inadvertently [[ConsolationPrize helped him score just one victory against the Avatar]]; [[spoiler: Korra only saw his boat escaping, and no-one witnessed Tarrlok blowing up the boat. Korra and the rest of the world still think he's at large. Amon will be haunting Korra's nightmares probably for the rest of her days, and she'll be constantly looking over her shoulder for him.]]

** Well, the reason why he left her at the altar was because she suggested that they get married when Bolin was trying to break up with her. He had no say in it whatsoever; she made the choice ''for'' him. She was willing to make him marry her without hearing him out, especially since she threatened him if he tried to end the relationship.

** Amon had Korra on the ropes and could have subdued her if he really wanted to, but saved her for last since he didn't want to make her a martyr. Korra, our [[HotBlooded headstrong]] [[{{Badass}} hero]], was utterly terrified of this man, and had nightmares about him. And in one episode, it nearly came true! Their first confrontation took place on Aang Memorial Island, in the middle of the night. Korra, being as brash as she was, thought that he would honorably face her in a duel. Instead, she gets ambushed and held down by Equalists, while Amon appears in the darkness to hold up her face and taunt her, saying he'd leave her for last. The aftermath of this scene, with Tenzin trying to comfort Korra as she bursts into tears, makes this whole scene a very uncomfortable allusion to a rape scene.

* The look that benders have on their faces when Amon is about to try and take their bending powers away. The situation is bad enough, but it's even worse when the benders have this look of absolute, pure terror on their faces that is just so unsettling. Even worse when Korra, of all people, has this terrified look as well. [[{{Badass}} Knowing her]] [[BoisterousBruiser character]], it takes a lot to make her so visibly scared.

** An even more scary thought: Kuvira had intended to kill the Avatar, likely knowing full well that the Earth Empire would be the next nation in the cycle. This means that she had likely not only intended to kill Avatar Korra, but find and take her successor too. Imagine an Avatar, the being who's purpose is to keep balance between the 4 nations and stop dictators like Kuvira, being born into and raised in a nation run by a brutal dictator with no problem invading and conquering other nations, and instead of following their original purpose, would be indoctrinated and forced by Kuvira to do just the opposite. The world's only hope, turned against them. Kuvira would have become unstoppable. Kuvira suddenly makes Fire Lord Ozai look like Long Feng.

* The very last scene of ''The Southern Lights''. The Southern Portal has been reopened, Korra and Mako have reconciled, and everybody's heading home. An ending like that so early in the series will already have GenreSavvy viewers worrying; it's almost too perfect. Then, when the Krew comes into view of the harbor, the background music turns hair-raisingly discordant, and we see the Northern Water Tribe's war fleet, unloading troops. [[OhCrap Uh-oh.]]

* Ming Hua gets knocked off a cliff and comes back up with multiple water arms, [[http://i.imgur.com/tvka2id.png giving off another]] SlasherSmile. The cinematography in that scene is particularly effective, clearly showcasing her to be a comparable to an[[http://i.imgur.com/ShRcyi3.png inhuman monster]]. The look in her dark eyes when she holds Opal hostage is practically demonic.

** It's not quick, either. He leaves a ball of air to keep her on the brink of death while he gives another [[CreepyMonotone speech]] before finishing the job.

* The sight of Tenzin and his children tied up on stage during the rally, about to be debended by Amon. Amon's earlier public debending was already shown as eerily similar to public executions. Now he's about to do it to a father [[WouldHurtAChild and his children.]] Making it worse? [[WhatTheHellTownsPeople There's a crowd cheering him on.]] Making it even worse? They're the very last airbenders in the entire world, making it [[FinalSolution complete genocide.]]
