I think it was Raava doing the reaching out. Because, after Korra "wakes up" that is when she recognizes and says "Dad...you're alive."

It could still have been Korra reaching out, actually.  She didn’t realize Tonraq was still alive until the poison’s out of her, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t see him — remember, she was hallucinating dead people before.  She might have thought he was a figment of her dying mind.  =(

It’s one of those things of this finale that has me wondering, actually. Was the poison somehow affecting Korra’s chi paths and physically forced the Avatar State out, or was it supposed to force AS out because she was in danger? I was sure it was the former at first, but after the rewatching (and reading some of the reactions on my dash) I’m not sure anymore. But wouldn’t it be strange for AS to react in such situation? It never happened before, and for a good reason… 

There’s no real reason to believe that the poison would have unusual effects on Korra’s chi — it basically just seems to be mercury — so I would assume that the latter was what was intended (especially since that fits better with Zaheer’s explanation).

As for why the AS would react, I think it’s implied that the AS can use its massive stores of chi to supercharge the Avatar’s body’s immune response and ability to heal itself.  With a normal organic poison, the AS would probably keep the Avatar alive until the poison broke down enough for the effects to wear off.  With a heavy metal, though, there wasn’t much Korra’s body could do to get rid of the poison, and the AS only had so much power it could give her when her body was dying.  And, unfortunately, the AS can’t really tell the difference.

Hm, this makes sense, AS made some pretty strange things with the Avatar before, like keeping him alive in an iceberg, so I guess it’s possible… I suppose the little thing that keeps bugging me a little about this is that coming out because of poison seems kind of… suicidal?

Unless this AS was an unconcious-defense-mechanism sort of AS. And unless Korra decided to end Zaheer no matter the cost when this madness came full-on. Hm, the latter seems quite possible to me. 

korrapuffs:

Right! Thats what I thought too. 

Also, I’m with you that Korra probably wasn’t aware of what’s really happening before Su removed the poison. I don’t exactly buy the “Korra was possessed by Raava” theory, if only because she lacked the typical Voice of a Legion, but I think she might have been hallucinating through the whole battle… and that would explain her fierceness! She thought she fought Amon, Unalaq and Vaatu (and possibly Zaheer) once again!

I think there would have been more indication of it if Korra was hallucinating throughout the entire battle, to be honest.  She did seem to know where she needed to attack most of the time, even if she didn’t have the fine muscle control to score accurate hit against a moving target.

It’s interesting how very little of Korra’s POV (so to speak) we get during this fight, and this makes me wonder whether we’ll get some flashbacks/nightmares about it early in Book 4. I guess hallucination would have been possible, but I’ll definately won’t insist on this. I will however insist on Korra being the one who fought Zaheer. It just doesn’t make sense to me otherwise.

I'm still confused about the Red Lotus goals. Was it ending the Avatar Cycle and Rebirth of the natural order via Apocalypse from the start, or raise and brainwash the Avatar into releasing Vaatu and taking out world leaders, and they just realized it wouldn't work with Korra now, so they decided to get rid of her because she would just be in their way? Also, why didn't they ever tell on Unalaq? To protect the Red Lotus? What do you think?

I kind of think that while the world will shift into not needing the Avatar to be the only person protecting it, I doubt we’ll go “Avatar is redundant”. At least because the Avatar is the embodiment of Peace and Balance and whatnot himself. =P Symbolically, it’s impossible for the world (and the writers) to reject Avatar’s functions, but… yeah, maybe said Avatar’s functions will get symbolical…

Considering that the writers chose to have the old Avatar Cycle end and a new one begin at the end of Book 2, I doubt they’re going to decide that the Avatar is actually redundant.  The Avatar can’t continue to exist in the form that it did before, but it doesn’t make much sense to destroy it, either.  The fusion between the Spirit of Light and a dedicated human is the sort of thing that seems like it will always have some place in making the world better, even if it’s not as world superhero.

And it’s a very wise decision. Just saying. :)

ikkinthekitsune:

It’s easy to get confused, because the Red Lotus’ plans seemed to shift multiple times.  So, let’s start from the beginning:

Opening the spirit portals and freeing Vaatu was always part of the plan.  Presumably, the initial idea would have been to force the Avatar to open the portals, then remove Raava from the Avatar so she and Vaatu could fight as they did before Wan came along.  That wouldn’t have required a willing Avatar or even a dead one, necessarily, depending on how they planned to get Raava out of the Avatar, because an Avatar without Raava is no Avatar at all.  After that, they’d start assassinating world leaders and create their “natural order.”

Unalaq came up with the idea of raising Korra to accomplish the Red Lotus’ goals.  Presumably, under this plan, Korra would willingly relinquish Raava, restarting the ancient Raava-Vaatu conflict, and then she’d use her still-considerable abilities to help the Red Lotus assassinate world leaders until her death as the last Avatar.

The attempt to kidnap Korra failed, of course, so Zaheer’s team got imprisoned and Unalaq rethought his plan.  When the time came to open the spirit portals, he decided that he’d rather become a Dark Avatar himself and destroy Raava (which makes a certain kind of sense for someone who feels like the natural order is chaos, really) rather than follow the original plan.  He still had a lot of Red Lotus-like goals, though — unseal the portals, create a world with no nations or separation between man and spirits, etc.

That… was a partial success, since Korra decided that Unalaq was right about the spirit portals, but Unalaq got himself killed in the process.  Meanwhile, Zaheer got airbending and broke out of prison.

I don’t think Zaheer was ever the biggest fan of the raise-the-Avatar plan, and even if he was, it wouldn’t work with a fully-grown Korra.  Since the portals were already open, removing the Avatar became their highest priority.

As for why they didn’t rat Unalaq out, I’m not convinced that they knew he was a traitor until he went Dark Avatar.  The Red Lotus are pretty hardcore about their goals; they might have thought that Unalaq’s apparent betrayal would be worthwhile if he managed to succeed at Harmonic Convergence, because they wouldn’t get another shot at that and Unalaq outing himself to save them probably wouldn’t have been the best way to succeed.  And, of course, by the time they realized that Unalaq betrayed them, there was very little time for them to say anything, and they’d probably be worried that knowing Unalaq’s goals would reveal too much about them to be worthwhile anyway.

Well, anyways, what I wanted to say is that I’d really like Korra to confront Zaheer at some point in Book 4, when she can go and tell him he was wrong. But, to be honest, Zaheer will probably never appear again.

I don’t know… this show’s been pretty bloodthirsty in dealing with enemies with the potential to escape from prison and cause more trouble.  That Zaheer — who already escaped from prison once — managed to survive Book 3 heavily suggests that he’s going to be relevant moving forward.

I agree that it might be hard… really hard to keep Zaheer locked up right now, but from writing point I doubt they’ll bring him back as a major villain, kind of like I doubt they’ll bring back Vaatu any time soon. Though I’d have liked for him to be somewhat relevant in Book 4 - as an information source maybe. But, yeah, I mostly want for a closure conversation with him, kind of what Zuko had with Ozai in The Day of the Black Sun.

I kinda want to be of the idea that Zaheer ends up explaining much of his plan to Korra in Book 4 (he’s still alive, right? Or maybe Bryke won’t bring him back…), but other than that, it seems like we might never really get the full story on this.

However, it does seem like the whole idea was laid out that they had to remove the Avatar, or make a world where the Avatar didn’t matter. I have a feeling this is going to be a major plot point in Book 4.

I’m not sure how much more there is to explain, but I’d definitely like to see Korra interrogate him for as much information as possible regardless.  XD;  He’s got to be alive for a reason, right?

The idea of removing the Avatar/the world not needing an Avatar is definitely going to be huge in Book 4, though.  It seems like it’s going to be a major part of Korra’s growth as a person.

I kind of think that while the world will shift into not needing the Avatar to be the only person protecting it, I doubt we’ll go “Avatar is redundant”. At least because the Avatar is the embodiment of Peace and Balance and whatnot himself. =P Symbolically, it’s impossible for the world (and the writers) to reject Avatar’s functions, but… yeah, maybe said Avatar’s functions will get symbolical…
