Due to an unfortunate leaking incident, Nickelodeon was forced to start airing the latest season of the hit teen-fantasy early - the season's dates were announced less than two weeks in advance of the three-part premier that aired Friday. While this may not be ideal from a network standpoint, fans of the series have been waiting months for information and were thrilled to be getting their fix so soon.
Many fans feel the Korra series pales in comparison to the original Avatar: The Last Airbender. Regardless of your opinion of the first two Korra seasons, here is a GIF-based recap of the beginning of Book 3 to get you pumped for a summer in Ba Sing Se:
First, we have Korra not caring about the president and his petty problems
Bolin making fun of Mako
Mako shows up, is awkward
So Tenzin is like, I'm out
Proceed to more Mako mocking.
Also, BUMI CAN AIRBEND
Time to look for them IN OUR AWESOME AIRSHIP THAT WE HAVE
F*k yeah airship!!!!!!
La la laaaa finding airbenders
not everyone wants to join their merry band of airbenders... so Korra made this cute upset face
THIS GUY DOES THO
Ok he's kind of a sneaky little rascal...
Airbenders in the earth kingdom, eh?
wooo so beautiful and urban
OK so the Earth Queen is kind of a you-know-what
Meanwhile, Mako and Bolin meet grams, who shows them this adorable photo
He's still a badass, obvi. Despite being at least... 80?
Also, he just casually HAS A DRAGON
Zuko shows the twins something cool...
Yes, the twins are back.
And in this secret prison lies....
...and most importantly, making fun of Mako.
In sum, it will be perfect.
