!!Chapter 39: Crystal Catacombs
* The massive {{Downer Ending}} we are left with: [[spoiler: Amon is killed and the Equalists are stopped, but Ba Sing Se is in chaos, Mako (and possibly Bolin) are dead, Korra has lost her bending, Asami has just about lost everything she once had, and Kuvira is shaping up to be the main antagonist of Book 3, playing everyone for fools and tools like the {{Well Intentioned Extremist}} she is in canon.]]







to:

\n\n\n!!Prologue: Katara's Story
* Aang's Death
* Katara's conversations with Korra's friends are a mixture of this and Heartwarming.
* Korra is suffering a HeroicBSOD following the events of Book One.


Added DiffLines:

* Earlier Senna expressed horror at the idea of her daughter becoming a killer. While she killed several members of the Red Lotus in self-defense, it does not change the fact Korra became what her mother feared.


* While Korra's reunion with her parents was heartwarming, there is a strong sense of awkwardness along with how they all blame themselves for what happened. Tonraq even sadly admits they can never get the time they lost back.

to:

--> ''Narration'': Korra was not sure how to react to this. After a delay she lifted her arms and let them settle around Asami. That seemed to be okay.

arrival.

* Asami feeling powerless as [[spoiler:Korra is being kidnapped right in front of her.]]

* Korra's farewell to her friends.

* Asami's ItsAllMyFault moment after [[spoiler:Korra Korra is taken away by the Red Lotus.]]
Lotus.
--> '''Mako''': Asami? Do you know something? Did Korra say something about this to you?
--> '''Asami''': No, but... (sighs) I never wanted to be right. If I was right, then I never told anyone, and then... all this would be my fault. (bitterly smiles) So, I guess it really is my fault in the end. I could have stopped it years ago.



to:

* Korra at first being unsure of how to respond to Asami's hug due to having no memory of ever being hugged before.

to:

\n* Zaheer paralyzes Korra and was going to leave her alone in the snow had it not been for Ghazan and P'Li intervening.
--> "Zaheer, I'm...cold. Don't leave me out here. Please?"


--> [[spoiler:'''Mako''': Water really was the death of me, huh? Pretty unremarkable way to go. Not quite what I would have had in mind. Least of all having it happen with you. You're supposed to outlive me...Sorry I couldn't protect you. I love you.
--> '''Bolin''': I love you too, Mako.]]

---> '''Mako''': You don't get it at all, do you? Me and my brother, we've been orphaned for years, and there was nobody willing to look after us. We had to survive on our own, doing whatever we could to survive. Sure we can both bend, but no company wants to hire kids. The gangs aren't so picky; some of them can use kids with those talents. And not for anything good. But it was a choice: Work for the gangs or starve in the gutter. At least our gang gave us protection from my parent's killers. The police lost interest real quick. And I can't just walk away from it now. Not while my brother still needs me.
