* {{Frameup}}: Tarrlok tries to pin Korra's disappearance on the Equalists, throwing a rope around one of the pillars, dropping a mask on the floor, and injuring himself with a taser glove (also left on-scene) to make the supposed attack more convincing.

* {{Frameup}}: Tarrlok tries to pin Korra's disappearance on the Equalists, throwing a rope around one of the pillars, dropping a mask on the floor, and injuring himself with a taser glove (also left on-scene) to make the supposed attack more convincing. The Equalists were not pleased about this, especially after Team Avatar broke into their lair.


Added DiffLines:

* JurisdictionFriction: Toph and Aang had shades of this when the latter came in to help deal with Yakone, as Toph believes crime bosses within Republic City are a police problem. Since Yakone is a super-dangerous criminal, that's where the Avatar has to step in, which Aang uses as reasoning to step in. Toph reluctantly agrees to let him join in.

* CallBack: After he's been revealed as a bloodbender, Tarrlok bloodbends everyone in the courtroom into unconsciousness, then runs away - exactly what his father did in the flashback. Tarrlok also meets a similar fate to that of his father: he's intercepted by Amon, who resists his bloodbending and debends him.
** To the original series. Mako's interrogation of the Equalist about where Korra is uses some very familiar lines.
---> '''Mako:''' "Avatar Korra! Where are you keeping her?" "Where is she?"
---> '''Sokka:''' "Where. Is. Suki." "Where are you keeping her?"
*** Both scenes even include the interrogator holding the questioned against a wall, but with Mako, he's the firebender, and it's the other way around for Sokka.

* WhamShot: Aang's first appearance in the series outside of brief glimpses can be seen as this. Then, in the present day, Amon's appearance in Tarrlok's shack and then ''resisting his bloodbending almost effortlessly''.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Amon personally handles the unconscious, de-powered Tarrlok and gives his grunts the far trickier task of securing Korra. [[spoiler: We learn why in the finale.]]
** Amon is shown to resist Tarrlok's bloodbending. The same thing happens in [[spoiler:the [[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender AtLA]] episode ''[[Recap/AvatarTheLastAirbenderThePuppetmaster The Puppetmaster]]'', where Katara is able to resist Hama's bloodbending.]] In both cases [[spoiler:the explanation is the same: Katara and Amon are stronger waterbenders than Hama and Tarrlok.]]
