** That terrifying man at the top of the page? Imagine that your dad is his arms dealer. Imagine that your dad's just as dedicated as him to thinking [[FantasticRacism your boyfriend and friends are scum who deserve to be literally wiped off the face of the Earth]] [[DisproportionateRetribution just for having the same innate skill as your mom's killers]]. Imagine that everything good you've done for your friends has actually been your dad using you like a puppet to divert suspicion away about how much he thinks they should die. Imagine that while you defended him and thought he was one of the good guys, your dad was out causing harm to other human beings without any remorse. That's basically the last five minutes of "The Aftermath" for poor Asami.

* [[spoiler: Tarrlok killing himself and Amon.]] Doubles as a Tearjerker, but as people mentioned watching it: Did we just see a murder-suicide on a kid's show?

** Here's another thing to consider. [[spoiler:Later on it's shown Raava can come back.... if that's true then wouldn't that mean Vaatu WASN'T just a hallucination?]]

** Particularly telling is that the show goes the full NeverSayDie routine afterwards, something the franchise usually doesn't have a problem with. The effect is similar to those times the camera loses focus in ''GameOfThrones'', like the creators are saying "Yeah, this is too disturbing even for us."

* Baatar forces Varrick to continue work on the spirit vine project. Varrick, knowing how dangerous this is, sets up a bomb so that it'll explode and destroy the train and everyone on it. He wasn't bluffing. Baatar and the train crew evacuate onto another train while essentially sentencing Bolin and Varrick to their own demise as they blow themselves up with the bomb. It explodes and creates a [[http://i.imgur.com/JVF6tCN.jpg huge crater]], blowing off the tracks as well. The blast was so severe that Baatar had to shield his eyes for a bit, with the blast looking very much like a [[CodeGeass FLEIJA]] detonation.

* Ming Hua gets knocked off a cliff and comes back up with multiple water arms, [[http://i.imgur.com/tvka2id.png giving off another]] PsychoticSmirk. 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.

* 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.]]
