** Zaheer is in NeverMyFault for poisoning Korra and destroying the Avatar. Technically TheBadGuysWins because while he didn't kill Korra, he destroyed her ability to enter the spirit world and the Avatar State, as well as her reputation.

to:

** Korra thinks that if she just looks him in the eye and affirms she's no longer afraid then she can overcome her block. Things don't go according to plan. Zaheer pulls a JumpScare on her, revealing that the fear won't go away that easily.
** Zaheer in the PetTheDog moment ''calls back'' Korra when she tries to walk away after the JumpScare. At this point he has no reason to: he's in prison, and she's no longer considered important as the Avatar. He knows something is wrong, however, because Korra hasn't been in the spirit world for three years, and she must be desperate if she's come to see ''him''. He has to tell her that she shouldn't have survived having that much poison in her body, and that he can sense how much power she has.
** Zaheer is in NeverMyFault for poisoning Korra and destroying the Avatar. Technically TheBadGuysWins TheBadGuyWins because while he didn't kill Korra, he destroyed her ability to enter the spirit world and the Avatar State, as well as her reputation. The Avatar is no longer considered important or useful.


Added DiffLines:

** Zaheer offers to help Korra return to the spirit world. She says she can't trust him. He agrees, but points out she has no other options. When Korra accepts his help, he forces her to relive her near-death experience.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Toph's stubbornness and {{Jerkass}} attitude was cute when she was a kid and her friends were able to handle it, but to her children it just comes off as plain brusqueness. Toph would never admit it, but she knows that she comes close to driving Lin away again, after being estranged from her for decades.

** Lin also still has the scar as an adult, though her mother was friends with one of the most powerful Waterbenders and Healers. It's highly likely that Lin refused to let the scar be healed, as a reminder of what happened that day.
* Toph's reaction to Lin arresting Suyin is to yell at both of them, while Lin has bandages on her scar. Lin calmly points out that she was just doing her job, and that Suyin put her in an impossible situation. Toph then decides to tear up the arrest warrant and exile Suyin to her parents. To Lin, this looks like Suyin is a KarmaHoudini, especially since Toph's reasons are that as a police chief she can't have a daughter in jail. Suyin also spends the whole time glaring at Lin, totally in NeverMyFault mode.
* Also the fact that as far as we see onscreen, Suyin never apologized to Lin for the scarring or the arrest, or took any responsibility for her actions. Suyin as an adult just acts like an entitled {{Jerkass}} who thinks that because she had all her character growth after being exiled from Republic City, that she and Lin can be cool. While Lin is supposed to be painted in the wrong, she comes off as UnintentionallySympathetic in how unrepentant Su is for being a juvenile delinquent. It also makes things sadly cathartic when Suyin, like Toph, finds her son and adoptive daughter turn against her later when she offered them all that she could.



* Zaheer seems genuinely sad that his attempts at bringing freedom to the world only led to the rise of a powerful dictator.
** Even sadder is that he is probably realizing that his friends died, hurt for nothing. Or worse, died for helping create the very thing they were all fighting against.

** The so far unnamed soundtrack that plays in Mako's redirection of the spirit vine energy is easily one of the most beautiful in the entire frnachise.

* The death of Robin Williams occurred around the same time Kuvira, voiced by his daughter Zelda, was introduced to the series.

* A Meta-example. Kuvira is voiced by Zelda Williams, the daughter of Creator/RobinWilliams, who tragically committed suicide less than two weeks before this episode was released. We see Kuvira introduced as she helps someone's father (Tonraq). It's truly a heartbreaking moment when you think about the grief Zelda was going through at the time of the episode's release.

* The relationship between Korra and Mako is not healthy. Both were constantly fighting with each other even before they became a couple and always seem to bring out the worst in each other. This is sadly a very realistic portrayal of what happens when two people rush into a relationship without getting to know one another first. While there are notable difference between the two they are also very alike in other areas, such as both being rather short tempered. Another problem Mako and Korra had was that they were unwilling to work together to solve problems as they would both think that their way was the the best way, the only way, and neither one of them where willing to compromise and listen to the others opinion. The scene where they decided to end their relationship is the inevitable result because of their conflicting personalities.

** 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.
