** His absence is even more painful because Korra's expressions can often be similar to his, and their personalities make it seem as if they would have gotten along well, but they don't even meet.

* * One of the really sad consequences of this book, is that Kuvira, MauveShirt, and one of the Suyin's most trusted people, almost a daughter, makes a FaceHeelTurn later along with Baatar Jr. and many others, gets estranged with Su, and becomes a BigBad of the following season, all to reunite shattered EarthKingdom. It really shows that no matter how small or big evil you cause, the results can be catastrophic, and Earth Queen's death, ddespite being an AssholeVictim, is this.

* Toph's voice wavers ever-so-slightly in response to the above complaint. You can tell that, behind the stubborn and aloof attitude, it really got to her.
* The spirits denying Korra's request for their assistance in protecting Republic City. Even if her intentions were noble, they viewed it merely as Korra being NotSoDifferent from Kuvira in using spiritual power for war/her own benefit.

* Varrick proposing to Zhu Li. No one ever said they had to be sad tears, but the way he proposes is just so uniquely ''him'' that you can't help but tear up a little.



** She mentions that her parents cast her aside before she was taken in by Su; when she apologizes to Su while being led away by handcuffs, her reply is "You're going to answer for everything you've done." Minutes after recounting her parental abandonment, her maternal figure turns her back on her as well. Not getting any closure there today.
** Heck, it seems that her ControlFreak tendencies were derived from her unresolved issues about her parents.

* After the new spirit portal is created, Team Avatar (including Tenzin and kids, Mako, Bolin, Asami, Varrick and Zhu Li) enter the crater and search for Korra. Without their dear friend in sight, their faces clearly give away that they fear for the worst. [[RomanticInterest Asami]], [[ThousandYardStare in particular]], [[http://dongbufeng.net/media/gallery/displayimage.php?album=113&pos=1325 looks completely broken.]]
** This is referenced during Korra and Asami's talk in the example below. During those moments, Asami may very well have been just...[[DespairEventHorizon done]].
* Asami and Korra's talk after the wedding where Korra apologizes for her behavior in "Reunion" and Asami says she's just glad that she didn't lose her as well after her father's HeroicSacrifice, and she and Korra hug.
** The final shot of the series is of Korra and Asami going on a private vacation together, [[ShipTease holding hands and]] [[HeldGaze gazing into one another's eyes as they're teleported into the Spirit World]]. Cue the feels.

** While the series showed that there is the possibility of future Avatar sagas, and the opportunity to see Korra and co as old elderly mentors again, this series pretty much cemented that we will never see the Gaang again. The fact that none of them makes an appearance at the party drives the point home.

* Suyin's pained expression as she recounts her history of raising Kuvira like her own daughter, showing that however wide the gap may be between the two and however vehemently she believes in needing to stop Kuvira Su herself is still deeply hurt over the split.
** This is possibly shown in her wide-eyed expression of concern when it looks like Korra is about to crush Kuvira during their duel.

** And when he activates the timer on the superweapon, he sounds as if he is almost ''willing'' to die in the resulting explosion. [[spoiler:Bolin manages to snap him out of it and they barely make it out in time, and although it may have been a ruse, this is the first time we've seen Varrick so broken.]]
* Even after having the strength to get rid of all of the poison in her body, [[spoiler: Dark Avatar!Korra still appears to haunt her. And at the worst possible time at that.]]

* The entire Asami subplot. Hiroshi has become TheAtoner after years in prison and keeps writing her letters, until she finally visits him just to show that she hasn't opened any of them and wants him to stay out of her life. Hiroshi completely accepts this, not expecting her forgiveness at all since he can't even forgive himself. But after some serious soul searching, she decides to at least make some effort and brings a Pai Sho board so they can play it like when she was a kid. It's moments like this that you realize that while Asami is a successful businesswoman and a feared warrior of Team Avatar, she's still just a little girl who wanted her family back but can't have it.

* Baatar Sr. trying to persuade Baatar Jr. to come back to Zaofu's side, only to be rejected. He genuinely wants his son back, and somehow the bitterness in Baatar Jr.'s tone makes it worse.

* Kuvira's entire StartOfDarkness. When we last saw her in Book 3, she was a warm and friendly person who even rescued Tonraq from Zaheer. Then came the fateful fallout between her and Suyin that led her to lose faith in Suyin and leave Zaofu with the legitimate intent of restoring order in the Earth Kingdom. Come three years later in Book 4, she's become an even worse dictator than the Earth Queen. It is truly heartbreaking to see such a noble spirit so easily fall to villainy.
