* And in the end, the reveal of the OfficialCouple had to be rendered as this--evidently, the world still isn't ready for same-sex couples in a kid's show. There's no BigDamnKiss or other open acknowledgment, but the moment hits all the same beats as the final moments between Aang and Katara in the original show. To their credit, Nickelodeon expressed wholehearted support of the relationship, but their hands were tied by the network's S&P.

* Varrick and Zhu Li go to prison together, and both share a cell -- [[ThereIsOnlyOneBed with only one bed]].

* The ending comes as close to confirming a romance between Korra and Asami as possible without an actual kiss. While the wedding is still going on, Korra and Asami have a heart-to-heart talk with Asami admitting that she wants a vacation. Korra then offers to take Asami anywhere she wants and it'll only be the two of them, and Asami suggests that they visit the Spirit World because she always wanted to see what it is like. At the portal site, in the final scene of the show, they hold hands, walk into the new Spirit Portal, and then put all four of their hands together, turn to face each other, and [[HeldGaze lovingly gaze at each other]] as they teleport away.
** The fact that the scene is a major InternalHomage to the end of the previous series, where Katara and Aang had their BigDamnKiss, probably isn't a coincidence either.
** [[http://bryankonietzko.tumblr.com/post/105916338157/korrasami-is-canon-you-can-celebrate-it-embrace It's not ambiguous]] [[WordOfGay anymore]].
** As Korra and Asami are watching the Spirit Portal after the wedding, the mountains in the background [[http://ilovekorrasami.tumblr.com/post/105615855842/flag-of-bisexuality-you-see-that-the appear as dark pink, violet and dark blue]], the colors of the bisexual pride flag.
** Interestingly, as per Bryan's post above, it wasn't so much "getting crap past the radar" as it was "[[MundaneSolution politely asking the radar's operators for permission and getting it]]."

* Varrick says Zhu Li's name will be synonymous with betrayal. But the way he says the first syllable in "betrayal" is so loud it seems like he's about to say the B-word.

to:

* Korra talks one of the new airbenders down off of a bridge in a scene that functions identically to her talking down someone who is on the verge of [[DrivenToSuicide attempting suicide.]] It's possible that he got up there by accident, given the context of the scene, but it doesn't really come across that way given the actual dialogue.



** He actually used the phrase "Varrick'd himself" as a euphemism for "killed himself." And it's not entirely clear that he didn't actually intend to blow himself up.

to:

** "Take out" is the standard euphemism for "kill" in the series -- it's as closed to confirmed as they could get.



* Lin tells Bolin "It's suicide" in reference to [[spoiler:saving Zhu Li basically being a SuicideMission]]. It averts NeverSayDie and such language is pretty unknown in a TV-Y7 kid's cartoon.

** This isn't actually the first time such language has been used in the series -- Bolin called Team Avatar's attempt to get to the southern portal during Harmonic Convergence a "suicide mission" back in Book 2.



* Kuvira is all but explicitly stated to have killed the soldiers in a UR outpost when she fired the spirit vine cannon on it.

** It ''is'' explicitly stated that she killed them in the commentary track for the episode. There's also a bit of back-and-forth between the co-creators about how many casualties each thought occurred when she blasted the UF ships in Yue Bay.

** P'li is shown lounging around with what looks like a martini.

** In the commentary, one of the co-creators jokes that it was just tea, lampshading the plausible deniability.

martini.
* According to the commentary track for Book 3, the Earth Queen's death required a bit of radar-dodging... not because of the graphic on-screen suffocation, but because the censors were unwilling to let anyone say she was actually dead. The solution? Have the radio broadcaster say that her "reign has come to an abrupt and violent end" and show Mako's grandmother saying, "may she rest in peace."


Added DiffLines:

** A storyboard artist claimed that Mako wasn't intended to have killed Ming-Hua, but one of the co-creators heavily implied in a commentary track that we actually saw her die on-screen.
