Yeah not gonna lie, this is basically a fan blog. If you can handle Game of Thrones, Legend of Korra, Attack on Titan, Harry Potter, etc. stick around.
The Coronation is the sort of episode that seems to offer more potential for future speculation than for speculating about the next few episodes. Very few clips appeared in it, so it mainly served to push ambiguous clips out an extra episode.
With that said, there are still a few new bits of information from other sources that could help put things into perspective. But there are still going to be significant parts of this that are hardly altered from last time, at least as far as the next couple of episodes are concerned.
Do you accept Kuvira as your lord and savior?
If not, YOU’LL BE CRUSHED.
Kuvira LOK still paint over. She looks a bit like Zelda Williams.
This. Is. AWESOME!
And yah, the producers and I had a laugh about how similar we looked when I came in and read in person for the first time. I hadn’t seen the character art until then! My mom even has a beauty mark on her cheek in a similar spot :)
Mako and Bolin hugs from Books 1-4
Mako: “Love you little bro.”
Bolin:"Love you back big bro."
Can you give us the room, please?
are we not gonna talk about this
Suyin: I met with the world leaders, and I’ve come as their representative.
Kuvira: So now you’re taking an interest in world affairs. A little late, isn’t it? When the queen fell, and everyone was asking you to keep the Earth Kingdom from falling apart, all you wanted to do was hide in Zaofu, and let others deal with the consequences.
Suyin: That’s hardly fair. I didn’t want to seize power for myself, which is what you’ve done. I’m telling you for the good of everyone, you have to step down.
Kuvira: I stepped up. I provide stability and equality. Tell your world leaders to stay out of Earth Empire business. We won’t accept their hand-picked dictator.
Suyin: What makes you so different? You’re just another tyrant. And don’t pretend the people put you where you are. I know what happens to cities who don’t want to hand over control to you.
Kuvira: Then you know what’s coming for Zaofu.
If you listen hard enough you can hear every living thing breathing together, you can feel everything growing. We’re all livin’ together, even if most folks don’t act like it. We all have the same roots, and we are all branches of the same tree.
There’s a lot to be said about this entire fight between Mako and Bolin
- They both think the other is in the wrong
- Mako thinks that Bolin is clouded by Kuvira’s finesse in ‘rhetoric’ and he’s not seeing the bigger picture
- Bolin is in denial about Kuvira and wants to believe that she’s really trying for the greater good
- And in defense, he uses Mako’s lackluster duties against him, making him sound like he’s done nothing for anyone
- AND IS JUST SOME SERVANT
- NEEDING A LOT OF ICE FOR THOSE FIRST DEGREE BURNS
