The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 All in all, this was a great episode that illustrated excellently the turbulent times of both the past, and the present for Korra and Aang. The flashbacks were fascinating as was the stories of the enemies, and it provided a strong return for Lin Beifong, showing that her role will continue to be a prominent one. We continue to be teased with snippets of information, only to have another big question to think over, and I love that the series is beginning to do this more and more. If you enjoyed last week's episode, this is going to make your day. Definitely check it out.
The action sequences for this episode are short, but still make you straighten up in your seat and take you back. The creativity still exists in every move that is done, and witnessing Aang in the past perform some of his trademark moves was great to see as well. The Bloodbending is what is primarily focussed upon here, and the power it holds is almost unsettling at times. Even the most experienced Benders cannot fight it off and it even has the power to take away life, not just restrain it. Even in the days after the Hundred Year War, times were still unbalanced and dangerous, and the flashbacks illustrate this very well.

The finale upon which the episode centres to is another shocker and turns the overall story in a new direction that I hadn't thought would happen. It's not a part I will spoil in this review, but it asks yet more fascinating questions about one particular character. The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 It had me glued to the screen, but the part afterwards sadly felt... rushed. They had to tie together the two stories of Korra and the team in the episode, and it felt like they cut corners to make it happen. (for example, where the heck did Naga come from??? You'll know what I mean when you see it) Which is a little disappointing, because it ended on a big point that deserved to have more focus. To be honest though, it was the only sticking point that stood out for me of the whole episode, and it could be the typical case that it was simply cut down for television. Maybe on the DVD we will see more footage; I'm crossing my fingers that we will.

The Legend of Korra episode 9 titled ‘Out of the Past’ was yet another fantastic episode. It further developed the characters, showed us the old ‘Team Avatar’ in numerous flashbacks, and thickened the plot to a point that all my speculations have been proven faulty. The episode starts off with Tarrlock essentially announcing that the Equalists had ambushed him and Avatar Korra the night before to take Korra captive. In case you may have forgotten, this isn’t what actually happened. In episode 8, we see that Tarrlock attacks Korra and takes her captive himself. The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 When Tenzin, Bei Fong, Mako, Bolin and Asami hear about this, they decide to break into an Equalist-run underground passage in hopes of finding Bei Fong’s lost men and Korra. Towards the end of the tunnel, Tenzin and company find Bei Fong’s lost men, but not Korra. The lost men confirm that Amon had taken away their bending once he took them hostage. Later, Tenzin and company find out from an Equalist member that the Equalists were not responsible for the attack that Tarrlock accused them of. Tenzin then uses this as evidence to convict Tarrlock of framing the Equalists for the attack and taking Korra hostage himself.

The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 Tenzin and the gang then confront Tarrlock about the matter afterwards. Tarrlock sees no other way to lie himself out of the mess so he conveniently blood bends Tenzin, Bei Fong, Mako, Bolin and Asami to the ground. Meanwhile, while all of this is happening, Korra is meditating in her chamber that Tarrlock contained her in. She focuses on connecting with Aang, and as a result, we see tons of flashbacks of the old ‘Team Avatar’. We essentially see ‘Team Avatar’ trying to bring a blood bender named Yakone to justice. Out of all this, Korra realizes that Avatar Aang was trying to warn her about Tarrlock the whole time because Tarrlock is in fact Yacone’s son.

When Tarrlock returns from his latest blood bending session, he confronts Korra and explains that they will be leaving the city so he can hold a new identity. Tarrlock’s master plan becomes short lived when Amon finally shows up and takes away his bending. But of course, Tarrlock didn’t back down without a fight: He tried to blood bend Amon, but it basically had no effect on him. Now I’m really confused: Amon can take away bending and he’s not affected by blood bending. He has traits that even the Avatar doesn’t have.
After Tarrlock loses his bending, Amon focuses his attention The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 on taking Korra hostage. Korra pulls a trick of her own and escapes the vicinity. She finds herself in the middle of nowhere, but Naga, her Polar Bear Dog, conveniently finds Korra and takes her safely back to Republic City were the rest of the gang awaits her. We’ll update all of you very soon on next week’s episode, ‘Turning the Tides’, which is followed up with a 1 hour season finale of The Legend of Korra.

The most recent episode of Nickelodeon's newest hit, "Avatar: The Legend of Korra," continues to move the first season forward at a torrid pace. Episode 9, entitled "Out of the Past," features Korra's capture at the hands of council member Tarrlok. Tenzin and the gang, led by former police chief Lin Beifong, hunt for Korra after receiving news the avatar was captured. After infiltrating a hidden Equalist prison, Beifong finds her officers captured from two episodes previously. Korra is nowhere to be found. The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 Fans of the original series such as myself loved the fact that Korra got in touch with her past lives for the first time. Upon meditation, Korra learns her previous life was trying to warn her about Tarrlok as a bloodbender. The ability allows him to control more than one person at a time by using the water in their blood to move muscles. The episode changes between the quest to find Korra and the avatar's flashback. In brilliant fashion, the storylines meld at the end.

The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 Two spoilers lie ahead, so if you've not seen "Out of the Past," it's time to turn back now. First, Tarrlok is the son of a previous criminal of Republic City called Yokune. There is a clue that might help in determining the identity of Amon. When Yokune's story is revealed, the prosecuting lawyer in the case says he ruled the underground. Underground Republic City is exactly where Amon's followers are in the present storyline. Second, Tarrlok attempts to bloodbend Amon when the Equalist leader confronts the council member. Amon also wants Korra in the mountain prison. The bloodbending takes down Amon's four lackies but not the leader. Tarrlok says "What are you?"

At this point, my wife and son are thinking Amon has some mechanical parts. There are two things in the "Avatar" world that lead me to believe Amon has cybernetic parts. In the third season of "Avatar: The Last Airbender," a bounty hunter known as Combustion Man had a metal arm and metal leg. That was set 70 years before the current series. Another aspect of a previous episode of "Korra" also bears out mechanical body parts. Hiroshi Sato invented mechanical armored suits that move like humans. The Legend Of Korra Episode 10 Made of pure platinum so metalbenders can't manipulate them, the armored suits are big and bulky. Yet there is no reason why Sato couldn't design a smaller model to fit for human limbs or human organs.
