Kuvira’s Gambit

Season 2, Episode 224
- EARTH. FIRE. AIR. WATER. ONLY THE AVATAR CAN MASTER ALL FOUR ELEMENTS AND BRING BALANCE TO THE WORLD. - KUVIRA THREATENS TO TAKE ZAOFU BY FORCE. AFTER TENSIONS FLARED BETWEEN SU BEIFONG AND HER FORMER PROTEGE, KORRA BROKERED A TRUCE. BUT IT WAS TOO LATE. SU AND HER SONS WERE ALREADY ON THEIR WAY TO PUT AN END TO KUVIRA. MEANWHILE, BOLIN AND VARRICK LEARNED OF KUVIRA'S TRUE TYRANNICAL INTENT AND DESERTED HER ARMY. BUT THEY WERE CAPTURED AND BETRAYED BY ZHU LI. NOW THEY'RE BEING HELD AGAINST THEIR WILL. - [muffled grunting] - ARE YOU SURE THIS WILL WORK? EVEN WITHOUT KUVIRA, THEY COULD STILL CRUSH US. - MOST OF THIS ARMY HAS BEEN FORCED INTO SERVICE BY KUVIRA. IF WE TAKE HER OUT, THEY'LL HAVE NO REASON TO FIGHT. TONIGHT WE END HER REIGN OF TERROR. [heavy footsteps] SHE'S ALONE IN THERE. NOW'S OUR CHANCE. - DON'T HURT ME! - ZHU LI? [alarm blaring] - I KNEW YOU'D TRY A SNEAK ATTACK. YOU WERE AFRAID TO STEP UP AND LEAD THE EARTH KINGDOM WHEN YOU HAD THE CHANCE, YOU WERE AFRAID TO JOIN ME WHEN I BECAME THE LEADER, AND NOW YOU'RE AFRAID OF A FAIR FIGHT. YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN A COWARD. TAKE THEM. - KORRA, YOU HAVE TO GO STOP SU BEFORE SHE DOES SOMETHING TERRIBLE. - STOP HER? WE SHOULD BE HELPING HER! - WE HAVE NO IDEA WHERE YOUR MOM IS OR WHAT HER PLAN IS. IF WE GO CHARGING INTO KUVIRA'S CAMP, WE COULD GET THEM ALL CAPTURED OR WORSE. ALL WE CAN DO NOW IS WAIT. [loudspeaker feedback] - ATTENTION, CITIZENS OF ZAOFU. YOUR LEADER, SU BEIFONG, ATTEMPTED TO ATTACK ME TONIGHT WHILE I SLEPT, IGNORING THE TERMS OF OUR TRUCE. LUCKILY, I NOW HAVE HER AND HER ASSAULT TEAM IN CUSTODY. - NO. - REST ASSURED THAT I WILL NOT TAKE REVENGE ON THE PEACEFUL CITIZENS OF ZAOFU, AS LONG AS YOUR REMAINING REPRESENTATIVES MEET ME OUTSIDE THE CITY AT DAWN TO OFFER THE FULL AND UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDER OF YOUR CITY. THAT IS ALL. - KORRA, YOU CAN'T LET KUVIRA GET AWAY WITH THIS. WE HAVE TO GO BREAK OUT MOM AND MY BROTHERS. - YOU SWORE AN OATH OF NONAGGRESSION WHEN YOU BECAME AN AIRBENDER. YOU CAN'T JUST ATTACK KUVIRA. - I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE OATH. I HAVE TO SAVE MY FAMILY. - NO, JINORA IS RIGHT. YOUR MOM ATTACKED THE CAMP. KUVIRA WAS JUST DEFENDING HERSELF. - DEFENDING HERSELF? SHE WAS GOING TO ATTACK OUR CITY! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE REFUSING TO FIGHT. - WHY IS THAT LOUDSPEAKER LADY TALKING WHEN I'M TRYING TO SLEEP? - KORRA, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? - JINORA AND I WILL GO TALK TO KUVIRA AT DAWN, AND MAYBE WE CAN WORK SOMETHING OUT. I PROMISE I'LL DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO KEEP THE PEACE. - I'LL GO WITH YOU. - WE'LL GO, TOO. - NO. DAD TOLD US TO FIND KORRA, AND WE FOUND HER. NOW YOU NEED TO STAY SAFE. - COME ON, LET US HELP. - I CAN'T RISK ANYONE ELSE BEING CAPTURED. YOU CAN STAY WITH BAATAR AND HUAN WHILE I WORK THIS OUT WITH KUVIRA. MAKE SURE THEY GET BACK TO TENZIN SAFELY IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG. - AW, MAN. WHEN AM I GONNA SEE SOME ACTION? - COOKIE JAR EMPTY. NO HOT TOWELS. WAXY BUILDUP. ZHU LI! - [yawns] - AW, SHE REALLY IS GONE. - UP AND AT 'EM, VARRICK. TIME TO GO TO WORK. WE HAVE ANOTHER LAB SET UP FOR YOU. KUVIRA WANTS THE SPIRIT VINE WEAPON OPERATIONAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. - ZHU LI ALWAYS GREETED ME IN THE MORNING WITH A--A HOT CUP OF TEA. - YOU'LL GET YOUR TEA WHEN YOU START WORKING. - WELL, I'M REALLY ONLY PRODUCTIVE FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES A DAY, USUALLY IN THE AFTERNOON AROUND 3:45. [grunts] - YOU'LL WORK NOW. I WANT YOU TO SHOW ME HOW THE DEVICE WORKS. - [yawns] WHAT'S GOING ON? - GO BACK TO SLEEP. WE ONLY NEED VARRICK. YOU'LL NEED YOUR ENERGY WHEN YOU GET TO THE REEDUCATION CAMP. - I CAN'T BE EXPECTED TO WORK WITHOUT AN ASSISTANT. WITHOUT ZHU LI, I'M HELPLESS. - ONE OF THE GUARDS WILL BE YOUR ASSISTANT. I'LL BE SUPERVISING. - WELL, I GUESS HE'LL BE FINE, AS LONG AS HE DOESN'T NEED HIS HANDS AFTERWARDS. [laughs] - WHAT'S HE TALKING ABOUT, SIR? - THE LAST TIME WE WORKED WITH THE SPIRIT VINES, IT CREATED AN UNCONTROLLABLE BLAST THAT BURNED THROUGH A WALL AND COULD STILL BE BLOWING UP COMETS IN SPACE, AS FAR AS I KNOW. I WOULDN'T WANT TO ASSIST ME IF I WERE YOU. - MAYBE WE SHOULD JUST LET THE KID HELP HIM OUT. - FINE. BOLIN CAN ASSIST. - WAIT, WHAT? I NEED MY HANDS! UH, HOLD ON. CAN WE GET BREAKFAST FIRST? WHILE WE STILL HAVE HANDS? - RELEASE THEM NOW! - IF SU AGREES TO BOW TO ME AND TURN OVER ZAOFU, SHE AND THE REST OF YOUR FAMILY WILL NOT BE HARMED. - NEVER! I'LL NEVER BOW TO YOU! - THERE MUST BE SOME WAY FOR US TO RESOLVE THIS. - I'VE ALREADY LAID OUT MY TERMS, AND I THINK THEY'RE VERY REASONABLE. AFTER ALL, SU DID TRY TO TAKE ME OUT DURING OUR PEACEFUL NEGOTIATIONS. - YOU CALL BRINGING AN ARMY TO THREATEN OUR CITY PEACEFUL? - WHERE'S BOLIN? I KNOW HE WOULD NEVER GO ALONG WITH THIS! - BOLIN IS WITH MY FIANCE, WORKING ON SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT, BUT I ASSURE YOU HE'S ON BOARD WITH MY PLANS. YOU TWO HAVE BEEN APART FOR SOME TIME. I GUESS YOU DON'T REALIZE HOW MUCH BOLIN HAS GROWN UP. NOW TURN OVER ZAOFU. - I CAN'T JUST LET YOU TAKE THE CITY. - AVATAR KORRA, YOU ARE INTERFERING WITH INTERNAL EARTH EMPIRE BUSINESS AND LETTING YOUR PERSONAL FEELINGS GET IN THE WAY OF REASON. ZAOFU CANNOT CONTINUE TO RULE ITSELF. THEY HAVE BEEN HOARDING THEIR RICHES AND TECHNOLOGY TOO LONG. I'M HERE TO DISTRIBUTE THOSE RESOURCES FAIRLY THROUGHOUT THE NATION. THIS IS ABOUT EQUALITY. - YOU DON'T CARE ABOUT EQUALITY! THIS IS ABOUT CONTROL! JUST TAKE HER DOWN. YOU KNOW IT'S THE RIGHT THING TO DO. YOU HAVE TO STOP THIS! - THE ONLY WAY YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP ME FROM MARCHING INTO ZAOFU IS IF YOU PHYSICALLY STOP ME. NOW WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? - IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE NOT GIVING ME A CHOICE. - FINE. I WANT YOU ALL TO KNOW THAT I WOULD NEVER ASK ANY OF YOU TO DO SOMETHING THAT I'M NOT WILLING TO DO MYSELF. SO RATHER THAN RISK YOUR LIVES, I WILL FIGHT THE AVATAR ONE-ON-ONE. KORRA, IF YOU WIN, THEN YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH ZAOFU. BUT AFTER I BEAT YOU, I WANT YOU OUT OF MY BUSINESS FOR GOOD. I'M THE ONE WHO BROUGHT PEACE TO THE EARTH EMPIRE, NOT YOU. YOU'RE NOT RELEVANT HERE ANYMORE. - FINE. YOU WANT TO FIGHT THE AVATAR? - ARE YOU REALLY READY TO FIGHT HER? - JUST STAY BACK AND LET ME HANDLE THIS. IT'S BEEN A WHILE, BUT I GOT A LOT OF PENT-UP RAGE. - DON'T MESS AROUND. KUVIRA IS TOO GOOD. JUST GO INTO THE AVATAR STATE AND GET IT OVER WITH. - NO, I'M ONLY GOING TO USE THAT AS A LAST RESORT. - BE CAREFUL. [bones crack] - USE WHATEVER YOU WANT, ALL THE ELEMENTS, THE AVATAR STATE, ANYTHING YOU NEED. I KNOW YOU'RE A LITTLE RUSTY. - ENOUGH TALK. [groaning] [all cheering] - [laughs] LOOKS LIKE THE AVATAR IS A LITTLE OFF HER GAME. - [grunts] - DON'T LET HER GET YOU FRUSTRATED! SHE WANTS YOU TO MAKE A MISTAKE! [grunting] - BOLIN, DO THE THING. - WHAT THING? - THE THING! I NEVER HAD TO TELL ZHU LI WHAT THING! - I'M NOT ZHU LI, OKAY? PRETEND I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ANYTHING THAT'S HAPPENING HERE. ALSO PRETEND I DON'T WANT TO BUILD A SUPER WEAPON OR GET MY HANDS BLOWN OFF. - WALK ME THROUGH WHAT YOU'RE DOING. I WANT TO KNOW EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR WORK. - YOU KNOW, WHEN I STARTED WORKING WITH THE VINES, THE POINT WAS TO FIND A CLEAN, UNLIMITED SOURCE OF ENERGY, NOT DEVELOP SOME SPIRITY DEATH RAY. - CLEAN ENERGY, SOUNDS GREAT! WHO DOESN'T LIKE THAT STUFF? LET'S DO THAT INSTEAD. - QUIET. YOU'RE HERE TO HELP, NOT TALK. AND YOU OF ALL PEOPLE SHOULD REALIZE THAT ONCE A DISCOVERY IS MADE, IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AS SCIENTISTS TO PURSUE IT AS FAR AS WE CAN, WHEREVER IT LEADS. - HOW WOULD YOU KNOW? YOU COULDN'T DISCOVER A WOLF-BAT IF IT WAS BUILDING A NEST IN YOUR BUTT. - [laughs] OOH. - YOU'RE PATHETIC. WOLF-BATS DON'T BUILD NESTS. - OOH, YOU GOT ME THERE, DR. SCIENCE. YOU'LL NEVER KNOW HOW IT FEELS TO GIVE BIRTH TO GENIUS, ONLY TO HAVE IT KIDNAPPED AND RAISED BY FOOLS. - ARE YOU DONE WITH YOUR RAMBLING, OR DO THE GUARDS NEED TO ENCOURAGE YOU TO CONTINUE YOUR WORK? - OKAY, OKAY, OKAY. THE LAST TIME WE RAN THE CURRENT THROUGH THE VINE, WE COULDN'T CONTROL THE POWER. SO I'M TRYING SOMETHING NEW TO SEE IF I CAN DIRECT IT. - [grunting] [panting] - COME ON, AVATAR. GET UP. SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE GOT. - WE HAVE TO HELP HER. - NO. STAY BACK. I CAN HANDLE THIS. - SO I SEE HOW THE CURRENT INTERACTS WITH THE VINE, AND HERE IS A KIND OF DIRECTIONAL TUBE, BUT THIS BAFFLING HERE AT THE BASE... - [sniffs] - IT LOOKS LIKE THAT WOULD ONLY REDIRECT THE ENERGY RIGHT BACK WHERE IT CAME FROM. AND WHAT'S THAT PIECE OF EQUIPMENT YOU'RE FIDDLING WITH NOW ON THE POWER SOURCE? - HAND ME THE SCREW-TURN-THINGY, WOULD YA? - UGH, I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE HELPING THEM. YOU KNOW THIS ISN'T RIGHT. - FUNNY STORY, BOLIN. I FIRST GOT THE IDEA FOR HARNESSING SPIRIT POWER WHEN I WATCHED THAT GIANT UNALAQ MONSTER ATTACK THE CITY FROM MY JAIL CELL. THAT GIANT MONSTER SET ME FREE. TRUST ME, KID. I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING. [grunts] THAT OUGHT TO DO IT. HUH. OKAY, STAND BACK. [device beeping] THERE WE GO. - WHAT'S THAT TICKING? - THAT'S THE TIMER. - THE TIMER FOR WHAT? - FOR THE BOMB, OF COURSE! - WHAT? WHAT BOMB? - THE BOMB THAT'S GOING TO EXPLODE IN FIVE MINUTES AND DESTROY THIS ENTIRE TRAIN, ALL OF THE SPIRIT VINES, AND EVERYTHING ELSE WITHIN A FEW HUNDRED YARDS. YOU KNOW WHAT, I'D GET OUT OF HERE IF I WERE YOU. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE BUILT A TIMER, AND IT MIGHT RUN A LITTLE FAST. BOLIN AND I ARE READY TO GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP-- OR TRAIN IN THIS CASE-- BUT YOU SEEM LIKE YOU HAVE A LOT TO LIVE FOR. - NO, NO, NO, NO! I'M NOT READY TO GO DOWN WITH THE SHIP OR THE TRAIN! - YOU'RE BLUFFING. - STICK AROUND FIVE MINUTES, AND YOU'LL FIND OUT WHO'S BLUFFING. YOU'LL BE SORRY YOU LEFT ME, ZHU LI! WHEN THEY WRITE THE HISTORY BOOKS, YOUR NAME WILL BE SYNONYMOUS WITH BETRAYAL! PEOPLE WILL SAY, "HEY, WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT GUY?" "OH, DIDN'T YOU HEAR, HE VARRICK'D HIMSELF BECAUSE SOME GIRL ZHU LI'D HIM!" - ENOUGH. - [whimpers] - WHAT MAKES YOU THINK WE'D LET YOU BLOW YOURSELF UP? YOU'RE WORKING FOR KUVIRA. YOU DON'T GET TO QUIT. GRAB HIM. - YOU TRY TO PULL ME AWAY FROM THIS THING, AND I'LL HIT THIS REMOTE AND BLOW IT IMMEDIATELY. - WHY DO YOU HAVE A TIMER AND A REMOTE? - WELL, FIRST I BUILT THE TIMER, BUT THEN I THOUGHT YOU COULD DRAG ME OFF THE TRAIN, SO THEN I BUILT A REMOTE. BUT THEN I THOUGHT, "WELL, NOW, "DO I REALLY NEED THE TIMER ANYMORE? BECAUSE I GOT A REMOTE IN MY"-- WHATEVER! I'M COVERING ALL MY BASES! THE POINT IS, YOU'RE LEAVING. WE'RE STAYING. - [grunting] - YOU HAVE TO GO INTO THE AVATAR STATE! DO IT! - [groans] - I DON'T UNDERSTAND. WE GOT THE POISON OUT. WHAT'S WRONG WITH HER? - I KNEW YOU WERE WEAK. - [groaning] YOU BROKE OUR AGREEMENT! ATTACK! [all cheering] [men screaming] - KEEP THEM BACK! I'M CALLING FOR HELP. [soft jazz music] - STUNNING WORK, IKKI. IT HURTS MY EYES WITH ITS RAW EMOTIONAL POWER. AH, PEDESTRIAN. I ALREADY KNOW WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE ON THE OUTSIDE. I WANT YOU TO SHOW ME THE INNER MEELO. - HELP! YOU HAVE TO GET KORRA AND THE REST OF US OUT OF HERE NOW! HURRY! - FINALLY! LET'S GET IT ON! - THIS IS EVERYONE. OUR HALF OF THE TRAIN IS CLEAR. - THAT'S GOOD. WE'RE ALMOST OUT OF TIME. - YOU'RE INSANE. - YOU KNEW THAT WHEN YOU HIRED ME. BOLIN, DO THE THING. - UH... - UNHOOK THE CARS! OH, COME ON, THAT WAS AN EASY ONE! - MAN, THAT WAS GREAT. I GOTTA ADMIT, YOU HAD ME GOING THERE FOR A WHILE. I REALLY THOUGHT YOU WERE GOING TO BLOW US UP. NOW, HOW DO WE TURN THIS THING OFF? - OH, WE CAN'T TURN IT OFF. WE'RE GOING TO BLOW UP. BUT WE HAD A PRETTY GOOD RUN, RIGHT? - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, A GOOD RUN? I'M STILL RUNNING! I LIKE RUNNING! [whimpering] - I'LL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE, ZHU LI. - I WANT YOU TO KNOW, I HATE YOU. - [screams] - I CAN'T BELIEVE HE ACTUALLY BLEW HIMSELF UP. THAT MAN WAS CRAZIER THAN A SEWER-PIPE ELEPHANT RAT. LET'S GET BACK TO ZAOFU. [both coughing] - [laughs] YES! YOU DID IT, BOLIN. YOU DID THE THING. MWAH! - I CAN'T BELIEVE ZHU LI WORKED FOR YOU AS LONG AS SHE DID. - [groaning] - DIVE, PEPPER! DIVE! HERE COMES A HURRICANE! YOU CAN'T HANDLE ALL THIS MEELO! - WE'VE GOT HER! GO! - WE HAVE TO SAVE THEM! - OPAL, GET OUT OF HERE! WE'LL BE FINE! JUST GO! - I'LL BE BACK FOR YOU! I LOVE YOU! [Pepper groans] - ZAOFU IS OURS! [all cheering] - BRING THE CITIZENS OF ZAOFU TO KNEEL BEFORE THE GREAT UNITER. ALL WHO PLEDGE THEIR LOYALTY TO ME WILL KEEP THEIR FREEDOM AND BE DEALT WITH FAIRLY AS FULL CITIZENS OF THE EARTH EMPIRE. THE REST WILL BE IMPRISONED AS TRAITORS, LIKE SU BEIFONG AND HER SONS. NOW BOW. - [groans] BOW TO HER! DO IT! SHE IS YOUR RIGHTFUL LEADER! - I'M SO DISAPPOINTED IN YOU, JUNIOR. - TAKE THEM AWAY! - GET YOUR HANDS OFF ME. YOU'RE CRUSHING MY INDIVIDUALITY. - ALL HAIL THE GREAT UNITER! [all cheering] - ARE YOU SURE THERE'S NO WAY THEY SURVIVED? - POSITIVE, BUT I THINK I CAN REPLICATE HIS WORK WITH THE SPIRIT VINES AND GET US BACK ON TRACK. I'LL JUST NEED AN ASSISTANT. - HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP BAATAR BUILD THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN? - IT WOULD BE MY HONOR, GREAT UNITER. - EARTH. FIRE. AIR. WATER. ONLY THE AVATAR CAN MASTER ALL FOUR ELEMENTS AND BRING BALANCE TO THE WORLD. - THE EARTH EMPIRE HAS INVADED THE UNITED REPUBLIC! AFTER KUVIRA DEMONSTRATED THE POWER OF HER SPIRIT ENERGY WEAPON, PRESIDENT RAIKO SURRENDERED THE CITY, BUT THE AVATAR REFUSED TO GIVE UP WITHOUT A FIGHT. KORRA HELD BAATAR JR. HOSTAGE, HOPING TO FORCE KUVIRA TO BACK DOWN, BUT THE PLAN FAILED, AND SHE FIRED ON TEAM AVATAR'S HIDEOUT. CAN ANYTHING OR ANYONE STOP KUVIRA AND HER MECHA-GIANT? - [grunting] GO AHEAD. TAKE YOUR TIME. JUST BENDING A GIANT WALL. MAN, WE GOT A LOT OF PEOPLE HERE. IS THAT EVERYBODY? [grunts] [suspenseful music] ♪ [electronic grinding] - [gasps] KUVIRA'S HEADING OUR WAY WITH A PLATOON OF MECHA-SUITS. - WHAT SHOULD WE DO? THIS IS MY HOMETOWN, AND I HATE TO SAY IT, BUT THERE'S NO USE RISKING ALL OUR LIVES TO FIGHT THAT GIANT THING. LET HER TAKE THE CITY FOR NOW. WE'LL THINK OF SOME WAY TO COME BACK AND BEAT HER. - WHAT ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO HAVEN'T BEEN EVACUATED YET? IF KUVIRA FINDS OUT WU IS WITH THEM, SHE MIGHT FIRE THAT SPIRIT CANNON AT HIM AND TAKE THEM ALL OUT. - I COULDN'T STOP KUVIRA FROM TAKING ZAOFU. I'M NOT LETTING HER CONQUER REPUBLIC CITY. THE WORLD ISN'T SAFE AS LONG AS SHE HAS THAT WEAPON. - I AGREE. WE TAKE DOWN THAT GIANT TODAY. - LIN! - GLAD TO SEE YOU ALL MADE IT OUT. YOU HAD ME WORRIED. - WELL, YOU BENDERS ARE GONNA HAVE TO FIGHT HER ALONE. SHE JUST BLEW UP OUR FACTORY WITH ALL OUR HUMMINGBIRD SUITS. - NOT ALL OF THEM. THERE ARE THE PROTOTYPES BACK AT MY OFFICE. IF WE CAN GET THOSE READY TO FLY, WE'LL AT LEAST BE ABLE TO OFFER A LITTLE AIR SUPPORT. - SU, YOU TAKE BAATAR JR. AND THE REST OF THE WOUNDED BACK TO ASAMI'S OFFICE. GET THOSE SUITS WORKING AS SOON AS YOU CAN. THE REST OF US WILL JUST HAVE TO FACE KUVIRA ON OUR OWN. [crowd chattering] - EVERYONE, PLEASE SETTLE DOWN. THE TRAINS SHOULD BE RETURNING TO PICK US UP SOON. - TELL THAT MECHA-JERK TO SETTLE DOWN.

WE'RE NOT GETTING OUT OF THE CITY BY RAIL. - EVERYONE, I WAS JUST UP ON THE OBSERVATION DECK AND SAW A BUNCH OF MECHA-SUIT SOLDIERS HEADING THIS WAY! - OH, GREAT! THE GIANT ONE WASN'T ENOUGH?

[electrical buzzing] [electrical booming] SHUT IT DOWN! - I CAN'T! AH! [grunting] [gasps] [dramatic music] ♪ [booming] - [gasps] LOOK! - A NEW SPIRIT PORTAL. [clanking] - SPREAD OUT AND FIND KUVIRA. - KORRA! [somber music] ♪ TENZIN, THERE'S NO SIGN OF HER. - KEEP LOOKING. KORRA! KORRA! [soft music] ♪ - UH-AHH! WHAT HAPPENED? ARE WE DEAD? - NO. WE'RE OKAY, BUT WE'RE IN THE SPIRIT WORLD. ALL THE ENERGY FROM YOUR WEAPON TORE OPEN A NEW PORTAL AND BLASTED US IN HERE. - WHY WOULD YOU SAVE MY LIFE? AFTER EVERYTHING I DID TO YOU. - I GUESS I SEE A LOT OF MYSELF IN YOU. - WE ARE NOTHING ALIKE. - YES, WE ARE. WE'RE BOTH FIERCE AND DETERMINED TO SUCCEED, SOMETIMES WITHOUT THINKING THINGS THROUGH. - THIS WASN'T HOW I WANTED THINGS TO END. IF YOU HAD ALL JUST SURRENDERED, NONE OF THIS WOULD'VE HAPPENED. - YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF. MESSING WITH THE SPIRIT VINES, ACTING LIKE A DICTATOR OVER YOUR PEOPLE-- YOU HAD TO KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING WASN'T RIGHT. - I WAS TRYING TO HELP MY PEOPLE. SU TURNED HER BACK ON THE EARTH KINGDOM. YOU WERE GONE. I HAD TO DO SOMETHING. - I THINK I GET IT NOW. - YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND ANYTHING ABOUT ME. - I DO. SU TOLD ME HOW SHE TOOK YOU IN WHEN YOU WERE YOUNGER. IT MUST HAVE BEEN SO HARD BEING AN ORPHAN. - DON'T PRETEND YOU KNOW WHAT IT FELT LIKE. THE AVATAR IS ADORED BY MILLIONS! I WAS CAST ASIDE BY MY OWN PARENTS, LIKE I MEANT NOTHING TO THEM! HOW COULD I JUST STAND BY AND WATCH THE SAME THING HAPPEN TO MY NATION WHEN IT NEEDED SOMEONE TO GUIDE IT? - YOU WANTED TO CREATE A PLACE WHERE YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE WOULD NEVER BE VULNERABLE AGAIN. I MAY NOT HAVE BEEN AN ORPHAN, BUT BELIEVE ME, I UNDERSTAND WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE AFRAID. AFTER I WAS POISONED, I WOULD'VE DONE ANYTHING TO FEEL IN CONTROL. - THE SPIRITS HAVE RETURNED. - AND SO HAS KORRA! - HA-HA! YOU'RE OKAY! - RELEASE KUVIRA, OR WE WILL ATTACK. - STAND DOWN. THIS BATTLE IS OVER. I OWE THE AVATAR MY LIFE. HER POWER IS BEYOND ANYTHING I COULD EVER HOPE TO ACHIEVE. I'LL ACCEPT WHATEVER PUNISHMENT THE WORLD SEES FIT. AND SU, I'M SORRY FOR ALL THE ANGUISH I'VE CAUSED YOU AND YOUR FAMILY. - YOU'RE GOING TO ANSWER FOR EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE. - HA-HA! - AND THOUGH THE BATTLE TOOK A SEVERE TOLL ON OUR BELOVED CITY, OUT OF THE DESTRUCTION, LOVE DID BLOOM. SO THAT IS WHY, DEAREST FRIENDS AND FAMILY, WE GATHER TODAY TO CELEBRATE THE WONDROUS AND AT TIMES INEXPLICABLE BOND BETWEEN SIR VARRICK AND THE LADY ZHU LI! - HEY, PAL. CAMERA ON ME. THIS IS MY BIG DAY! - TRUE LOVE IS A FICKLE CREATURE, DIFFICULT TO FIND, NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO TAME, BUT VARRICK AND ZHU LI HAVE PROVEN THAT EVEN THE LONGEST OF LONG SHOTS CAN HAVE A CHANCE AT HAPPINESS TOGETHER. NOW FOR THE VOWS! [chirping] THANK YOU, MASTER PABU. DO YOU, SIR IKNIK BLACKSTONE VARRICK OF THE SOUTHERN WATER TRIBE, MASTER OF THE HIGH SEAS, TAKE THE LADY ZHU LI MOON TO BE YOUR LAWFULLY WEDDED WIFE? WILL YOU PROMISE TO TREAT HER NOT AS YOUR ASSISTANT BUT AS YOUR HONORED AND CHERISHED PARTNER? - YOU'RE DARN TOOTIN' I DO! - AND DO YOU, ZHU LI, TAKE VARRICK TO BE YOUR LAWFULLY WEDDED HUSBAND? DO YOU PROMISE TO CARE FOR HIM IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH, AND--AND ALSO SCRUB HIS CALLUSES ON A BI-WEEKLY BASIS, WHICH ISN'T REALLY THAT MUCH TO ASK-- OKAY, I'M NOT READING ALL THIS. - I DO TAKE VARRICK, CALLUSES AND ALL. - YOU MAY NOW DO THE THING. - OH! [cheering and whistling] - [whimpering] - ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? - YOU JUST MAKE ME SO DANG HAPPY. [crying] [whistling] [popping] [lively music] ♪ - [laughing] - MY COUSIN TOLD ME HOW LEVEL-HEADED YOU WERE DURING THE WHOLE EVACUATION. I GOT TO ADMIT, I'M IMPRESSED. I THINK YOU'RE GONNA MAKE A GREAT LEADER, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I'M GONNA SET YOU UP WITH KORRA, SO DON'T ASK. - THAT'S OKAY, MAKO. SOMETIMES, A GOOD EVACUATION IS ITS OWN REWARD. - GOOD TO SEE YOU, PRINCE WU-- OR SHOULD I SAY KING WU? YOU READY TO GET BACK TO BA SING SE AND FINALLY TAKE THE THRONE? - YEAH... ABOUT THAT. I WAS ACTUALLY THINKING OF STEPPING DOWN AS KING AND GETTING RID OF THE MONARCHY ALTOGETHER. - ARE YOU JOKING? - FOR ONCE, I'M NOT. NOW, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE GONNA SAY: I'M BEING LAZY, I'M AFRAID OF RESPONSIBILITY, I'M PUTTING MY SINGING CAREER BEFORE MY PEOPLE, BUT IT'S NONE OF THOSE THINGS. I REALLY THINK THE EARTH KINGDOM WOULD BE BETTER OFF IF THE STATES WERE INDEPENDENT AND HAD ELECTED LEADERS LIKE THE UNITED REPUBLIC. - THAT'S ACTUALLY PRETTY WISE AND MATURE OF YOU. - I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA. THE EARTH KINGDOM SHOULD EVOLVE, AND I'LL DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO HELP YOU MAKE THAT HAPPEN. - LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU, BUT FOR NOW, THE DANCE FLOOR CALLS! - HOW'S THE ARM? - MUCH BETTER. - THE WORDS "THANK YOU" DON'T FEEL BIG ENOUGH FOR WHAT YOU DID, BUT I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO SAY. - YOU DON'T NEED TO SAY ANYTHING. I WANT YOU TO KNOW I'LL FOLLOW YOU INTO BATTLE NO MATTER HOW CRAZY THINGS GET. I'VE GOT YOUR BACK AND I ALWAYS WILL. - I SPOKE TO PRESIDENT RAIKO. TOMORROW, HE'S ANNOUNCING A PLAN TO EXPAND THE CITY RATHER THAN REBUILD DOWNTOWN. - I BET AANG NEVER COULD'VE IMAGINED THERE'D BE A SPIRIT PORTAL RIGHT IN THE HEART OF REPUBLIC CITY. - KORRA, YOU'VE TRANSFORMED THE WORLD MORE IN A FEW YEARS THAN MOST AVATARS DID DURING THEIR LIFETIMES. - BUT I FEEL LIKE I'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN. THERE'S SO MUCH MORE I WANT TO LEARN AND DO. - YOU DON'T KNOW HOW HAPPY I AM TO HEAR YOU SO FULL OF HOPE AGAIN. - IT'S BEEN A BIT OF A BUMPY RIDE, HUH? - I'VE COME TO REALIZE LIFE IS ONE BIG BUMPY RIDE. - I KNOW I WAS IN A PRETTY DARK PLACE AFTER I WAS POISONED, BUT I FINALLY UNDERSTAND WHY I HAD TO GO THROUGH ALL THAT. I NEEDED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT TRUE SUFFERING WAS SO I COULD BECOME MORE COMPASSIONATE TO OTHERS, EVEN TO PEOPLE LIKE KUVIRA. - EXCUSE ME, TENZIN. VARRICK IS LOOKING FOR YOU. SOMETHING ABOUT WANTING TO BORROW A GLIDER SUIT TO FLY OFF THE TOWER. - THAT DOESN'T SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA. - WANT TO SIT WITH ME FOR A MINUTE? I'M NOT READY TO GET BACK TO THE PARTY JUST YET. I DON'T THINK I EVER REALLY APOLOGIZED. - FOR WHAT? - FOR BEING GONE ALL THAT TIME. FOR NOT COMING BACK SOONER. - YOU DON'T NEED TO APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING. I'M JUST SO HAPPY YOU'RE HERE NOW. I DON'T THINK I COULD HAVE HANDLED LOSING YOU AND MY FATHER IN THE SAME DAY. - I AM SO SORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. - THANK YOU. I'M JUST GLAD I WAS ABLE TO FORGIVE HIM. - SO WHAT NOW? BACK TO THE DANCE FLOOR? - I'M KIND OF ALL DANCED OUT. HONESTLY, AFTER EVERYTHING THAT'S HAPPENED THE PAST FEW MONTHS, I COULD USE A VACATION. - LET'S DO IT. LET'S GO ON A VACATION, JUST THE TWO OF US, ANYWHERE YOU WANT. - REALLY? OKAY. I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE WHAT THE SPIRIT WORLD'S LIKE. - SOUNDS PERFECT. - EARTH. FIRE. AIR. WATER. ONLY THE AVATAR CAN MASTER ALL FOUR ELEMENTS AND BRING BALANCE TO THE WORLD. - AFTER KUVIRA HARVESTED SPIRIT VINES FROM THE SWAMP, THE VINES IN REPUBLIC CITY REACTED BY ABDUCTING PEOPLE. KORRA SAVED EVERYONE, BUT ALL IS NOT WELL. VARRICK AND BOLIN RETURNED TO WARN EVERYONE ABOUT KUVIRA'S SPIRIT VINE SUPER WEAPON. NOW RAIKO WANTS TO MOUNT A DEFENSE AGAINST THE EARTH EMPIRE. MEANWHILE, BOLIN, OPAL, AND LIN ARE ON A MISSION TO RESCUE SU BEIFONG AND HER FAMILY, WHO ARE BEING HELD CAPTIVE BY KUVIRA. [Juicy groans] [Juicy panting] - ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO THIS. SAVING THE BEIFONGS AND SAVING OUR LOVE BECAUSE I VOW TO REPAIR THE RIFT THAT HAS GROWN BETWIXT US AND MAKE US WHOLE AGAIN! - YOU, ZIP IT NOW. I HAD ENOUGH OF YOUR BABBLE ON THE RIDE IN. - YES, MA'AM. - KUVIRA TORE DOWN ALL THE DOMES. WHY WOULD SHE DO THAT? - SHE'S GOT A WHOLE BATTALION OF TROOPS STATIONED THERE. THERE'S NO WAY WE'LL BE ABLE TO SPOT ANYTHING USEFUL FROM HERE. WE'LL HAVE TO GO IN FOR A CLOSER LOOK. - DON'T BOTHER. ALL THE PRISONERS HAVE BEEN MOVED. - UH, HEY, CHIEF. - HEY, CHIEF. - GRANDMA TOPH! - YOU WERE ONLY UP TO MY WAIST THE LAST TIME WE WERE TOGETHER. - OH, MAN! OH, I CAN'T! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING! - WHAT? DO YOU HAVE TO PEE OR SOMETHING? - NO, WELL, NOW MAYBE. YOU'RE MY HERO! MY NAME IS BOLIN. I'M DATING YOUR GRANDDAUGHTER, I MEAN, KIND OF. I MAY HAVE SCREWED THAT UP, BUT THAT'S WHY I'M HERE, AND YOU'RE MY HERO! OH, I SAID THAT. CAN I HAVE A HUG TOO? - WHAT'S UP WITH HIM? - HE'S AN ACTOR. SO YOU ALREADY CHECKED THE CITY FOR SU? HOW DID YOU KNOW SHE WAS CAPTURED? - I'VE BEEN LIVING IN THE SWAMP AND KEEPING WATCH ON ZAOFU THROUGH THE VINES. - SURE, OKAY, MAKES SENSE. - BY THE TIME I GOT HERE, THEY WERE GONE. I SNOOPED AROUND TOWN AND HEARD THAT THEY WERE TAKEN AWAY TO SOME NEARBY PRISON CAMP. - WHERE WOULD THAT BE? - THERE'S A FACTORY AND REEDUCATION FACILITY NOT TOO FAR AWAY. - HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT? - BOLIN USED TO WORK FOR KUVIRA. - HOW DID YOU END UP DATING THE KIND OF DIPSTICK WHO WORKS FOR KUVIRA? - USED TO! - IT'S NOT HIS SILVER TONGUE, I CAN TELL YOU THAT. - PLEASE TELL ME THIS ATTITUDE ISN'T HEREDITARY. [Juicy panting] - GRANDMA, THIS IS JUICY. - AND I THOUGHT APPA WAS SMELLY. WHY WOULD YOU CHOOSE THIS LEAKY, NASTY THING? - YOU DON'T CHOOSE YOUR BISON. HE CHOOSES YOU. AND ONCE HE CHOOSES YOU, YOU CAN'T CHANGE. BELIEVE ME. I CHECKED. - THE BORDERS ARE SECURE, AND TROOPS ARE GUARDING THE RAIL LINES INTO THE CITY. SO WHAT HAVE YOU TWO GENIUSES COME UP WITH TO FEND OFF KUVIRA? - IT'S A FLYING MECHA-SUIT. ASAMI GOT THE IDEA FROM WATCHING DRAGONFLY-HUMMINGBIRDS. YOU CAN TAKE OFF STRAIGHT UP, FLY IN ANY DIRECTION. - WHERE DOES THE SPIRIT RAY COME OUT? - IT DOESN'T HAVE A SPIRIT RAY. I'M TELLING YOU WHAT I TOLD KUVIRA: THAT TECHNOLOGY SHOULD NOT BE USED. - IT'S ALREADY BEING USED BY KUVIRA! I NEED SPIRIT VINE WEAPONS, AND I NEED THEM NOW! - NO. IT WAS KUVIRA'S HARVESTING OF THE VINES IN THE SWAMP THAT CAUSED THE REPUBLIC CITY VINES TO GO CRAZY AND GRAB ALL THOSE PEOPLE. - YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE THE BRIDGE BETWEEN THE TWO WORLDS. WHY CAN'T YOU HARVEST THE VINES? - I WON'T DO THAT, BUT MAYBE SINCE THE SPIRITS LOVE REPUBLIC CITY SO MUCH, I CAN CONVINCE THEM TO HELP US DEFEND IT SOMEHOW. - HMM. - OKAY, MAYBE WHILE THE WEAPON GENIUSES AND THE SPIRIT BRIDGE ARE GETTING READY FOR BATTLE, WE SHOULD BE EVACUATING THE ORDINARY CITIZENS SO THAT IF KUVIRA ATTACKS, THEY WON'T BE HURT. - THAT'S ACTUALLY A GOOD IDEA. PRINCE WU, YOU WORK WITH THE POLICE TO COORDINATE GETTING PEOPLE OUT OF THE CITY. NOW EVERYONE GET TO IT. I WANT DAILY UPDATES. - NICE JOB IN THERE. I'M PROUD OF YOU. YOU'RE STARTING TO ACT LIKE THE KIND OF KING I'D LIKE TO WORK FOR. - THANKS. AND IF KORRA BUYS THIS "MAN OF THE PEOPLE" THING, I STILL MIGHT GET TO DATE HER. - YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO RUIN IT. - WHAT? COME ON! WHY DO YOU THINK GUYS DO ANYTHING GREAT? TO PICK UP GIRLS. EVERY WORK OF ART, EVERY SONG, EVERY CITY EVACUATION ALL FOR THE LADIES. - ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY, LET'S TEST THE POWER CORE. I WANT EVERYTHING IN ORDER FOR THE FULL DEMONSTRATION FOR KUVIRA TOMORROW. LOAD THE ENERGY CAPSULE. ZHU LI, INITIALIZE PHASE ONE. - THERE'S A PROBLEM WITH THE CONDENSER. IT'S BACKING UP. - SHUT IT DOWN. - I CAN'T. THE OVERRIDE ISN'T WORKING. EVERYONE NEEDS TO EVACUATE. THIS THING IS GOING TO BLOW! - EVERYONE GET OUT! NOW! - COME ON, BAATAR! IT'S TOO LATE! - THIS CHANNELING RING WAS CRACKED. THAT'S WHAT CAUSED THE REACTION TO OVERLOAD. NOW WE'RE TAKING THIS WHOLE THING APART TONIGHT AND CHECKING EVERYTHING. NOTHING IS TOO SMALL. THIS HAS TO BE READY BY TOMORROW. [Juicy groaning] - SO HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE YOU TWO HAVE SEEN EACH OTHER? - LITTLE WHILE NOW. COUPLE OF YEARS. - TRY 20. - AH, TIME FLIES WHEN YOU GET TO BE MY AGE. I'M SURPRISED YOU CAME TO SAVE SU. I THOUGHT YOU GUYS DIDN'T GET ALONG. - SU AND I FINALLY WORKED OUT OUR OLD GRIEVANCES. - GOOD, GLAD WE CAN PUT ALL THAT BEHIND US. - RIGHT. "WE." - OKAY, THERE'S THE FACTORY. - WHOA, THAT'S ONE BIG... THING. - I THINK I KNOW WHERE THEY ARE. FEEL THAT CAVERN A FEW STORIES DOWN? IT SEEMS EMPTY, BUT IT'S GUARDED BY AN AWFUL LOT OF MECH. - RIGHT. WHY WOULD YOU NEED SOLDIERS GUARDING AN EMPTY CAVERN? THEY MUST HAVE THEM IN SOME KIND OF SUSPENDED PRISON, SO THEY CAN'T USE THEIR EARTHBENDING. [door opens] - SOMEONE'S COMING. HIDE! - I DIDN'T EXPECT YOU UNTIL TOMORROW. - I JUST WANTED TO CHECK IN TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING WAS ON TRACK. IT LOOKS WONDERFUL. - WE'VE HAD A FEW MINOR MALFUNCTIONS, BUT WE SHOULD BE READY FOR THE TEST TOMORROW. - YOU'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS THE ENTIRE TIME, ZHU LI. WHAT DO YOU THINK THE PROBLEM IS? - IT'S A VERY COMPLEX MACHINE. THERE ARE BOUND TO BE SOME BUGS TO WORK OUT. - BUT YOU'RE DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO FIX THOSE, CORRECT? - OF COURSE, YOUR EMINENCE. - SHE'S LYING. - TELL THE TROOPS AND FACTORY WORKERS TO ATTEND TOMORROW'S DEMONSTRATION. I WANT THEM ALL TO WITNESS THIS INCREDIBLE NEW WEAPON IN ACTION. - WE SHOULD BE THINKING OF A WAY TO TAKE OUT KUVIRA WHILE WE HAVE THE CHANCE. - OR AT LEAST DESTROY THE CANNON. IF SHE TAKES THAT TO REPUBLIC CITY, IT COULD OBLITERATE EVERYTHING. - I DIDN'T COME TO FIGHT WITH KUVIRA OR DESTROY A CANNON. I'M HERE TO SAVE MY FAMILY. IT WILL TAKE EVERYTHING WE HAVE JUST TO GET OUT ALIVE. - HMM. KUVIRA WANTS EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HER PEOPLE TO SEE THE WEAPON TEST TOMORROW, SO THE FACTORY WILL BE MOSTLY EMPTY THEN. THAT'S OUR BEST CHANCE TO SNEAK IN AND FREE SU WITHOUT BEING SPOTTED. - GOOD THINKING, BOLIN. - THANKS. I KIND OF HAVE A HEADACHE NOW. - EXCUSE ME, SPIRIT? CAN I TALK TO-- AND YOU'RE GONE. JUST LIKE ALL THE OTHER SPIRITS. THEY'RE ABANDONING THE CITY. - SO LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT METALBENDING. SU TRIED TO TEACH ME, BUT I COULDN'T GET THE HANG OF IT. - I USED TO HAVE AN ACADEMY TO TRAIN METALBENDING. EVEN BLOCKHEADS LIKE YOU CAN FIGURE IT OUT WITH THE RIGHT INSTRUCTION. - YEAH, YOU'RE A REAL SENSITIVE INSTRUCTOR. - I DID LEARN HOW TO LAVABEND. - REALLY? IT'S A VERY RARE ABILITY. MAYBE YOU DO HAVE SOME TALENT. - I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU THINK I'M TALENTED. THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME COMING FROM MY HERO. - YEAH, SHE'S REAL ENCOURAGING. - HEY, I'M BLIND, NOT DEAF. - SO HERE'S SOMETHING I'VE ALWAYS BEEN CURIOUS ABOUT. WHO'S LIN'S DAD? - HE WAS A GUY NAMED KANTO. NICE MAN, BUT IT DIDN'T REALLY WORK OUT BETWEEN US. - AND... OKAY. - LIN, I CAN FEEL YOUR ENRAGED BREATHING FROM HERE. JUST SAY WHAT YOU HAVE TO SAY, AND LET'S GET IT OVER WITH. - JUST GET IT OVER WITH? YEAH, LET'S NOT LINGER ON THE FACT THAT I GREW UP WITHOUT A DAD. NO NEED TO GET ALL TOUCHY-FEELY ABOUT IT. JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS, RIGHT? - HEY, I FORGAVE YOU FOR ALL YOUR GARBAGE A LONG TIME AGO, AND SU AND I WORKED THINGS OUT. YOU'RE THE ONLY ONE WHO WANTS TO HOLD ON TO THIS FAMILY DRAMA NONSENSE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. - FORGAVE ME FOR WHAT? AND NOT KNOWING MY DAD IS NONSENSE TO YOU? IT WAS PRETTY IMPORTANT TO ME. AND UNTIL NOW, YOU WOULD NEVER EVEN DISCUSS IT. YOU KNOW, AFTER SU AND I PATCHED THINGS UP, I THOUGHT, "MAYBE I SHOULD TRY TO REACH OUT TO MOM." BUT NOW THAT WE'RE TOGETHER AGAIN, I REMEMBER WHY WE STOPPED TALKING. YOU MAKE ME FURIOUS, AND YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY. AND WHEN I TELL YOU, YOU DON'T CARE. ONCE WE SAVE SU, YOU AND I ARE FINISHED. - [sighs] IF THAT'S YOUR DECISION AND IT MAKES YOU HAPPY, THEN FINE. - THE TEST IS ABOUT TO START. THEY'RE GOING TO BLOW UP THAT EMPTY TOWN WE FLEW OVER YESTERDAY. YOU'RE CLEAR TO GO. - COPY THAT. WE'RE GOING IN. - THE GUARDS ARE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT DOOR. WE'LL HAVE TO BE QUIET. - SHOOT ME OVER TO THE CAGE, AND I CAN SWING THEM BACK ON MY CABLE. BOLIN, YOU'LL HAVE TO CATCH THEM SINCE MOM WON'T BE ABLE TO SEE THEM. READY? [all grunting] [metallic clang] - WE'LL GET YOU OUT ONE AT A TIME. COME ON. - I GOT YOU! [grunts] - CONGRATULATIONS ON ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK. THIS WEAPON IS PROOF THAT THE EARTH EMPIRE IS THE STRONGEST NATION IN THE WORLD. AND BELIEVE ME, THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING! [crowd cheering] FIRE THE WEAPON. [alarm beeping] WHAT'S WRONG? - PROBABLY SOMETHING MINOR. I SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THE PROBLEM. [machine powers down] THE DISTRIBUTOR PIN IS GONE. I SWEAR I LOCKED IT IN PLACE YESTERDAY. THERE'S NO WAY IT COULD HAVE JUST FALLEN OUT. - AND THIS COULD CAUSE THE ENTIRE WEAPON TO FAIL? - IT COULD CAUSE IT TO EXPLODE. - WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS? - NOTHING. - YOU SWORE YOUR LOYALTY TO ME, AND I GAVE YOU A CHANCE AT GREATNESS. THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY ME? - YOU'RE A MONSTER. I REGRET NOTHING. - CHAIN HER UP IN THE TARGET TOWN. SHE CAN SEE HOW THE WEAPON WORKS UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL. - OH, NO. - SWEETIE, IT'LL BE FINE. LIN WON'T DROP YOU, AND BOLIN WILL CATCH YOU. - NO, NO. JUST GO. JUST LEAVE ME. I'LL STAY HERE. - SORRY, BUT I HAVE TO DO THIS. - AAH! [shouts] - HUH? [alarm blaring] - [whimpering] - THE PRISON. GET THERE NOW. - SHOULD WE POSTPONE THE TEST? - I DIDN'T COME ALL THIS WAY TO STOP NOW. FIRE WHEN READY. I WANT TO SEE THAT TOWN DESTROYED. [cage crashes] - WE GOT 'EM. WE'RE COMING OUT. - [blows] [Juicy grumbles] - MOM! DAD! THANK YOU. - LET'S MOVE. - KUVIRA CAUGHT ZHU LI AND THREW HER IN THE TOWN. - WHAT? NO, I HAVE TO GO SAVE HER. - YOU CAN'T GO IN THERE, KID. IT'S SUICIDE. KUVIRA'S ONTO US. - WE'VE BEEN THROUGH TOO MUCH TOGETHER. I CAN'T LEAVE HER. TOPH, YOU SAID ZHU LI WAS LYING ABOUT FIXING THE CANNON. SHE MUST HAVE BEEN TRYING TO STOP IT. - FOR ALL YOU KNOW, SHE COULD JUST HAVE BEEN COVERING HER BUTT BECAUSE SHE MADE A MISTAKE. - NO. ZHU LI DOESN'T MAKE MISTAKES. YOU GUYS LEAVE. IF WE MAKE IT OUT, WE'LL GET TO THE CITY SOMEHOW. - BOLIN, NO! - YOU GUYS GET OUT OF HERE. I HAVE TO GO WITH BOLIN. - COULD BE OUR BEST CHANCE TO STOP KUVIRA. - MAYBE TAKE OUT THAT WEAPON. - WE CAN'T LET OPAL BE THE COOLEST. - IF YOU ALL WANT TO GET YOURSELVES CAPTURED AGAIN OR WORSE, THAT'S YOUR BUSINESS. I'M THROUGH. - WATCH OUT FOR BAATAR SR. AND HUAN. - SO HOW HAVE YOU BEEN, MOTHER? - I TOLD YOU NEVER TO CALL ME THAT. - SPIRITS, THIS IS THE AVATAR. PLEASE LISTEN TO ME. SINCE I OPENED THE PORTALS, SPIRITS AND HUMANS HAVE LIVED HAPPILY TOGETHER IN REPUBLIC CITY. IT'S ALL I COULD HAVE HOPED FOR. I KNOW YOU FELT THE EFFECTS OF KUVIRA CUTTING DOWN SPIRIT VINES. BUT NOW ISN'T THE TIME FOR YOU TO FLEE THE CITY. IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO HELP ME SAVE IT FROM KUVIRA, WHO WAS PERVERTING SPIRIT POWER TO USE AS A WEAPON AGAINST OTHER HUMANS. - WE DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH HUMAN WARS. - SPIRITS WORKED WITH UNALAQ. - HE WAS MISUSING VAATU'S POWER DURING HARMONIC CONVERGENCE TO FORCE SPIRITS TO FIGHT YOU. IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT? - NO, BUT AS THE AVATAR, I'M HOPING THAT YOU WILL COME TO MY AID TO SAVE THE NEW WORLD WE ALL SHARE. - WHAT YOU WANT IS EXACTLY WHAT KUVIRA WANTS: TO USE SPIRITS AS A WEAPON IN A HUMAN WAR. THE ANSWER IS NO. - WAIT! PLEASE, LISTEN. IF SPIRITS AND HUMANS ARE GONNA LIVE TOGETHER, WE HAVE TO WORK WITH EACH OTHER. [sighs] [machinery slides into place] - OPAL? NO. WE HAVE TO STOP THE TEST. [all grunt] - [gasps] - WHOA. [rocks clattering] - AAH! [all scream] - [grunts] - [grunting] [all shout] [rumbling] [all shouting] [Juicy grunting] - YOU GIVE METALBENDERS A BAD NAME! [whoosh] [Juicy grumbling] - THANKS FOR COMING TO SAVE US, MOM. - YEAH, THANKS, CHIEF. I'M SORRY FOR WHAT I SAID LAST NIGHT. I WAS JUST... YOU KNOW. - LOOK, I KNOW I WASN'T A GREAT MOTHER, BUT ONE WAY OR ANOTHER, I ENDED UP WITH TWO GREAT KIDS. GOOD ENOUGH TO RISK MY BONY OLD BUTT FOR, ANYWAY. IF YOU CAN JUST FIND SOME WAY NOT TO HATE ME, MAYBE THAT'S ENOUGH, AT LEAST FOR ME. - ME TOO. - YOU KNOW, I NEVER HAD ANY FAMILY EXCEPT FOR MY BROTHER UNTIL A FEW YEARS AGO, AND REUNITING WITH THEM MADE ME REALIZE HOW SPECIAL IT IS-- - ARGH, ENOUGH. ENJOY THE RIDE BACK TO THE CITY WITH THE GUM FLAPPER HERE. - AREN'T YOU COMING BACK TO REPUBLIC CITY WITH US, GRANDMA? - NO, MY FIGHTING DAYS ARE OVER. DON'T TELL KORRA, BUT MY BACK IS KILLING ME NOW. THIS IS WHY YOU DIDN'T SEE KATARA MESSING WITH THAT CIVIL WAR NONSENSE. AT SOME POINT, YOU GOTTA LEAVE IT TO THE KIDS. - I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK TO SAVE ME. AND DON'T BE TOO HARD ON BOLIN FOR WORKING WITH KUVIRA. HIS HEART WAS IN THE RIGHT PLACE. - I THINK BOLIN HAS WORKED HIS WAY OUT OF THE POLAR BEAR-DOGHOUSE. MWAH. - YES! HA-HA! - WE SHOULD GET GOING. I'M AFRAID I HAVE BAD NEWS TO DELIVER TO REPUBLIC CITY. KUVIRA IS GOING TO ATTACK IN TWO WEEKS. - EARTH. FIRE. AIR. WATER. ONLY THE AVATAR CAN MASTER ALL FOUR ELEMENTS AND BRING BALANCE TO THE WORLD. - BOLIN, OPAL, AND LIN RESCUED THE BEIFONGS AND ZHU LI FROM KUVIRA. NOW THEY'RE RACING TO REPUBLIC CITY TO ALERT EVERYONE ABOUT THE EARTH EMPIRE'S IMMINENT ATTACK. MEANWHILE, KORRA AND TEAM AVATAR HAVE BEEN PREPARING FOR JUST SUCH AN EVENT. PRINCE WU IS LEADING AN EVACUATION EFFORT WHILE ASAMI AND VARRICK ARE CREATING FLYING MECHA-SUITS. BUT WITH KUVIRA PLANNING TO STRIKE IN ONLY TWO WEEKS, WILL THEY BE READY IN TIME? - TODAY WE STAND ON THE PRECIPICE OF HISTORY. FOR THE PAST THREE YEARS, WE'VE FOUGHT SIDE BY SIDE TO UNITE THE EARTH EMPIRE AND WE'VE PROVEN THAT NO ONE CAN STAND IN OUR WAY. NOT EVEN THE AVATAR. BUT OUR MISSION IS NOT YET COMPLETE. THERE IS A GRAVE INJUSTICE THAT MUST BE CORRECTED. AS YOU ALL KNOW, AFTER THE HUNDRED YEAR WAR, AVATAR AANG, ALONG WITH FIRE LORD ZUKO STOLE EARTH EMPIRE LAND AND FORMED THE UNITED REPUBLIC. THIS LAND BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH EMPIRE AND IT'S TIME TO TAKE IT BACK. REPUBLIC CITY WILL BE OURS! all: ALL HAIL THE GREAT UNITER! - ARE YOU READY TO SHOW THE WORLD WHAT A TRUE SUPER POWER LOOKS LIKE? - YES. I'M HONORED TO MARCH INTO THE CITY BY YOUR SIDE. I LOVE YOU, KUVIRA. - I NEVER COULD'VE DONE THIS WITHOUT YOUR HELP. AFTER WE CLAIM VICTORY, WE CAN FINALLY GET MARRIED AND RULE OUR EMPIRE TOGETHER. - HOW'S THE EVACUATION COMING? - COULD BE BETTER. AT THIS POINT WE'VE EVACUATED ALMOST...18 FAMILIES. - ONLY 18? THERE ARE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE IN THIS CITY! - I SAID IT COULD BE BETTER. - THE PROBLEM IS IT'S A VOLUNTARY EVACUATION AND THERE AREN'T MANY VOLUNTEERS. THEY JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE THEY'RE IN ANY IMMEDIATE DANGER. [door opens] - GUYS! GOOD! YOU'RE ALL HERE. - WHAT'S WITH YOU INTERRUPTING MY IMPORTANT MEETINGS ALL THE TIME? - SU! WHAT ARE YOU--YOU'RE OKAY! I'M SO SORRY ABOUT ZAOFU. HOW DID YOU ESCAPE? - OPAL, BEIFONG, AND I RESCUED EVERYONE BUT WE HAD A RUN IN WITH KUVIRA. WE SAW HER SUPER SPIRIT WEAPON UP CLOSE. LIKE, REALLY CLOSE. WAY TOO CLOSE. - IS SHE GOING TO USE IT AGAINST REPUBLIC CITY? - YES. I FOUND OUT SHE'S GOING TO ATTACK IN TWO WEEKS. - OH! AND ZHU LI IS ON OUR SIDE NOW. ACTUALLY, SHE NEVER REALLY SWITCHED SIDES. AND I'M JUST GONNA LET HER EXPLAIN THE WHOLE THING, ZHU LI? - I PRETENDED TO BE LOYAL TO KUVIRA SO I COULD SABOTAGE HER WEAPON. IT DIDN'T WORK, BUT I DID OVERHEAR HER PLANS TO ATTACK. - I KNEW SHE WOULDN'T STOP AT ZAOFU. - MY GUESS IS, SHE'S COMING BY RAIL. IT'S THE ONLY WAY SHE CAN TRANSPORT THAT WEAPON. - THEN WE'LL CUT THE RAIL LINES. - I AGREE. BUT LET'S GET AS MANY CITIZENS EVACUATED BEFORE WE DO. PUT OUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT. THE EVACUATION IS NOW MANDATORY. - WE'RE ON IT. - DON'T WORRY, MR. PRESIDENT. I WON'T LET KUVIRA TAKE OUR CITY. - WELD HOTTER! TIGHTEN TIGHTER! THE PRESIDENT SAID WE ONLY HAVE TWO WEEKS TO GET THESE HUMMINGBIRDS HUMMING! [humming] - VARRICK, GOOD, YOU'RE HERE. CAN I TALK TO YOU FOR A MINUTE? - WHAT IS IT? I'M BUSY INSPIRING MY WORKERS. - WELL, I WENT TO ZAOFU AND SAVED SU AND HER FAMILY... AND GUESS WHO ELSE WE FOUND... HA! - ZHU LI. - NOW, ISN'T THERE SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO SAY TO HER? HMM? - PLEASE, LET ME GO FIRST. I KNOW I SAID A LOT OF TERRIBLE THINGS ABOUT YOU IN FRONT OF KUVIRA, BUT I NEED YOU TO KNOW, I DIDN'T MEAN ONE WORD. WHEN YOU WERE BEING TAKEN AWAY, I THOUGHT MY ONLY CHANCE TO SAVE YOU WAS TO JOIN HER. BUT EVERYDAY I HOPED FOR THE CHANCE TO SEE YOU AGAIN AND TELL YOU THE TRUTH. VARRICK, YOU MEAN THE WORLD TO ME, AND I'M SORRY IF I HURT YOU IN ANY WAY. - DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF. APOLOGY ACCEPTED! NOW BE A GOOD ASSISTANT AND MAN THE ASSEMBLY LINE! - NO! I AM NOT YOUR ASSISTANT ANYMORE! IF YOU WANT ME AROUND, YOU NEED TO START TREATING ME LIKE AN EQUAL. - [sound of indifference] - [frustrated smack to head] - WE'RE PATCHED IN ON THE EMERGENCY BROADCAST LINE. YOU'RE GOING OUT TO EVERY RADIO IN THE CITY. - ATTENTION CITIZENS OF REPUBLIC CITY, THIS IS NOT A TEST. AN ATTACK ON OUR CITY IS IMMINENT. PRESIDENT RAIKO HAS ORDERED A MANDATORY EVACUATION FOR ALL CITIZENS. PLEASE FIND YOUR EVACUATION HANDBOOKS AND TURN TO SUB-SECTION ONE DASH TWO SIX. THERE YOU WILL FIND INITIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR AREA. FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU LIVE IN NORTHWEST-VECTOR-ONE REPORT TO YOUR PRIMARY MEETING LOCATION WHICH WOULD BE AT THE EASTERN ENTRANCE OF THE SOUTHERN WATER TRIBE LIBRARY. THERE, YOU WILL CHOOSE A LEADER AS SPECIFIED IN SECTION ONE DASH TWO EIGHT. [phones ringing like crazy] - UH, CHIEF, WE'RE GETTING CONFUSED CALLS FROM ALL OVER THE CITY. I THINK MAKO'S STARTING A PANIC. - WHAT'S CONFUSING? I'M GIVING VERY SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS. - GREAT, THIS IS JUST WHAT WE NEED. - I GOT THIS. HELLO, EVERYONE. THIS IS PRINCE WU. NOW I KNOW YOU'RE ALL A LITTLE SCARED. BELIEVE ME, I KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE AFRAID. I USED TO NOT BE ABLE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM BY MYSELF. BUT IF WE LET THAT FEAR CONTROL US, NONE OF US WILL EVER BE ABLE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM, AND THEN WE ALL LOSE. BUT THE PEOPLE OF REPUBLIC CITY AREN'T LOSERS, WE'RE WINNERS! WINNERS THAT ARE GOING TO GET OUT OF THIS CITY IN A CALM AND ORDERLY FASHION. SO I WANT YOU TO GRAB YOUR FAMILY, GRAB YOUR NEIGHBOR, GRAB THAT GUY DOWN THE STREET YOU DON'T KNOW VERY WELL AND HEAD TO THE NEAREST BUS, TRAIN, OR FERRY STATION. WE'RE GOING TO GET YOU OUT OF HERE, SAFE AND SOUND. - GOOD JOB, KID. YOU MIGHT NOT MAKE SUCH A BAD KING AFTER ALL. - ROHAN'S WITH THE ACOLYTES. THEY HAVE THE BOAT READY TO LEAVE. WHY AREN'T YOU ALL PACKED YET? - THE KIDS AND I HAVE BEEN TALKING AND WE DECIDED WE WANNA STAY. THIS IS OUR CITY, AND IT'S GOING TO NEED ALL THE HELP IT CAN GET. - YEAH! ONLY A COWARD FLEES HIS FATE. - THANK YOU. I'M SURE PRINCE WU COULD USE YOUR HELP WITH THE EVACUATION. AND YOU THREE CAN HELP THE OTHER AIRBENDERS KEEP AN EYE ON THE EARTH EMPIRE TROOPS FROM ABOVE. - KUVIRA WILL RUE THE DAY SHE MESSED WITH MEELO! - I STILL DON'T LIKE HAVING TO ABANDON MY OFFICE AND THE CITY. - AIR TEMPLE ISLAND IS THE IDEAL LOCATION FOR YOUR BASE OF OPERATIONS. AND YOU'LL BE SAFE HERE. - THERE'S SOMETHING WE NEED TO DISCUSS WITH YOU. - WHAT IS IT? - THE FOUR OF US HAVE BEEN TALKING AND... WE WANT TO TAKE OUT KUVIRA'S SPIRIT WEAPON BEFORE IT GETS TOO CLOSE TO THE CITY. - THAT SOUNDS LIKE A RISK WE DON'T NEED TO TAKE. THE EVACUATION IS ON SCHEDULE AND GENERAL IROH IS GETTING HIS ARMY IN PLACE. - I KNOW IROH CAN GO TOE TO TOE WITH KUVIRA'S ARMY, BUT THAT WEAPON-- - IT'S TOO POWERFUL! IT CAN DESTROY THE CITY! - WE CAN'T LET IT GET TO OUR DOORSTEP. - WE'LL SNEAK BEHIND ENEMY LINES AND DISABLE THE WEAPON. - IF IT WORKS, IT'LL EVEN THE PLAYING FIELD. - BUT IF YOU GET CAUGHT... - IT'S WORTH THE RISK. - I AGREE, AND IT MIGHT BE OUR ONLY SHOT AT PREVENTING AN ALL OUT WAR. GOOD LUCK. - WE'LL HEAD OUT TONIGHT. - THERE'S SOMETHING OUT THERE. IT'S KUVIRA'S ARMY! THEY'RE A WEEK EARLY! GET THE COMMANDER IMMEDIATELY, AND RADIO REPUBLIC CITY! [thunderous thud] - [gasp] [thud] [mechanized whirring] [bass tone] [mechanized whirring] - [gasps] GUYS, I SEE SOMETHING. DOWN THERE! - IS THAT? - KUVIRA. SHE'S ALREADY CROSSED INTO UNITED REPUBLIC TERRITORY. SHE'S A WEEK EARLY. - THIS DOESN'T MAKE SENSE. THERE AREN'T ANY TRAIN TRACKS THIS WAY. HOW ARE THEY TRANSPORTING THAT SUPER WEAPON OF THEIRS? - APPARENTLY ON A GIANT MECHA-SUIT. - DID YOU KNOW KUVIRA WAS BUILDING THAT THING? - OH, DID I FORGET TO MENTION IT? NO! OF COURSE I DIDN'T KNOW! - THERE'S A FLYING BISON UP AHEAD. - THE AVATAR... - I KNOW WHAT HAPPENS NEXT! WE GOTTA GET OUTTA HERE NOW! NOW! [all screaming] - SHOULD WE GO AFTER THEM? THEY'RE GOING TO WARN REPUBLIC CITY. - LET THEM. NO ONE CAN STOP US. - KORRA, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? WHY ARE YOU BACK SO SOON? - IT'S KUVIRA. OUR INTEL WAS WRONG. SHE MUST'VE KNOW ZHU LI HAD THE INFORMATION. - WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY? - KUVIRA'S ARMY IS ONLY A FEW HOURS AWAY. - NO, THEY CAN'T BE... WE'RE NOT READY. - AND THAT SPIRIT WEAPON OF HERS IS ATTACHED TO A GIANT MECHA-SUIT. IT'S OVER 25 STORIES TALL. - GET GENERAL IROH ON THE LINE AND TELL HIM THE ATTACK IS HAPPENING TODAY. WE NEED TO LOCK DOWN THIS CITY. - PEMA, FIND WU AND GET THE REMAINING CITIZENS TO SAFETY IMMEDIATELY. WE CAN'T HAVE INNOCENT LIVES IN JEOPARDY. - WHAT SHOULD WE DO? - LET'S GO TO MY FACTORY. MAYBE WE CAN GET A FEW OF THOSE HUMMINGBIRD SUITS UP AND RUNNING. - WE'RE COMING WITH YOU. - I'LL HEAD TO THE FRONT LINES AND HELP GENERAL IROH. - KUVIRA THIS IS PRESIDENT RAIKO. I ORDER YOU TO STAND DOWN. TURN YOU ARMY AROUND AND LEAVE. - YOU'RE IN NO POSITION TO GIVE ORDERS. - STAND DOWN OR WE WILL ATTACK. - I DON'T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND THE POWER I POSSESS. LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR. - THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I DIDN'T WANT TO BUILD THAT WEAPON! - MR. PRESIDENT, DO I HAVE YOUR ORDER TO ENGAGE? - YOU HAVE THREE SECONDS OR I WIPE OUT YOUR ARMY. - I HAVE NO CHOICE. - TIME'S UP. - STOP. WE SURRENDER. REPUBLIC CITY IS YOURS. - GOOD. TURN YOUR ARMY AND THE AVATAR OVER TO ME AND GIVE BAATAR YOUR LOCATION. HE'LL PRESENT YOU WITH OUR TERMS. - I'M NOT SURRENDERING! - GET BACK TO THE CITY BEFORE SHE SEES YOU. AND KORRA, FIND A WAY TO BEAT THAT THING. - I WILL. - WE'VE DONE IT KUVIRA. AND I JUST GOT WORD THAT PRESIDENT RAIKO IS ON AIR TEMPLE ISLAND. I'M HEADING THERE NOW. - RAIKO SURRENDERED. IT'S DOWN TO US NOW. - HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO FIGHT AN ENTIRE ARMY, A MECHA-GIANT, AND THAT CRAZY WEAPON? - WE CAN'T FIGHT IT, BUT MAYBE WE CAN CRIPPLE IT. ZHU LI, WHEN YOU WERE SPYING ON KUVIRA, DID YOU LEARN ANYTHING ABOUT THAT METAL MONSTER. - I HAD NO IDEA THEY WERE EVEN BUILDING IT. - GUESS BAATAR JR. IS A BETTER INVENTOR THAN I THOUGHT. DON'T TELL HIM I SAID THAT. - [gasp] THAT'S IT! BAATAR JR. BUILT IT-- HE'LL KNOW HOW TO TAKE IT DOWN. I SAY WE CAPTURE HIM AND GET HIM TO TALK. - HMM... - I KNOW IT'S A LONG SHOT, BUT IT'S THE ONLY CHANCE WE HAVE AND IF WE DON'T-- - KORRA. I'M IN. - WE'LL NEED A STEALTH TEAM OF AIRBENDERS TO GET IN AND OUT OF BAATAR'S AIRSHIP UNNOTICED. TENZIN, BUMI, JINORA, KAI-- LET'S GET MOVING. - WHAT ABOUT ME? - SORRY BUDDY, BUT THIS MISSION COUNTS ON EVERYONE BEING AS SILENT AS POSSIBLE. AND YOUR FARTS ARE JUST TOO MUCH OF A WILD CARD. - I CAN BE QUIET! [farts] OKAY. POINT TAKEN. - IS EVERYONE READY? [muffled struggling sounds] - YOU'VE MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE. ONCE KUVIRA FINDS OUT I'M MISSING, YOU'RE ALL DONE FOR. - THAT'S WHY BEFORE SHE FINDS OUT, YOU'RE GOING TO TELL US HOW TO STOP THAT MECHA-GIANT, OR ELSE... - OR ELSE WHAT? YOU WON'T HURT ME. I KNOW AN EMPTY THREAT WHEN I SEE ONE. - [frustrated groan] - WAS THIS YOU BEST IDEA? YOU'VE LOST, ONLY YOU HAVEN'T ACCEPTED IT YET. - LET ME TALK TO HIM. - ARE YOU SURE? - CHECK THE ENGINE ROOM. - WHAT'S GOING ON? IS EVERYTHING ALL RIGHT? - JUST A MINUTE, SIR. I'M TELLING YOU, I LOOKED EVERYWHERE. - ALL RIGHT, ENOUGH WHISPERING. - I'M READY TO DISCUSS THE TERMS OF THE SURRENDER WITH BAATAR JR. WHERE IS HE? - UH... I'M NOT REALLY SURE. - BAATAR... - IF YOU THINK I'M GOING TO SPILL ALL MY SECRETS TO YOU, MOTHER, YOU'RE SADLY MISTAKEN. - WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS? I KNOW YOU SET OUT TO HELP BETTER THE WORLD BUT THIS IS MADNESS! - IT'S MADNESS TO LET OTHERS TAKE WHAT'S YOURS AND ACCEPT IT BLINDLY. THE UNITED REPUBLIC BELONGS TO US. AND WE'RE TAKING IT BACK. - BUT AT WHAT COST? HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO LOSE THEIR LIVES BEFORE KUVIRA IS SATISFIED? - IT DOESN'T HAVE TO COST ANY LIVES IF YOU WOULD ALL JUST SURRENDER. ALL THAT KUVIRA AND I WANT IS A UNITED EARTH EMPIRE. - I DON'T KNOW WHAT I DID TO HURT YOU, BUT WHATEVER IT WAS, I'M SORRY. WHEN YOU LEFT ZAOFU, IT BROKE MY HEART. AND OUR FAMILY HAS NEVER BEEN THE SAME SINCE. PLEASE, BAATAR. STOP ALL OF THIS AND COME HOME. WE WANT YOU BACK WITH US. - KUVIRA IS MY FAMILY NOW. - WE'RE GOING ABOUT THIS ALL WRONG. YOU'RE RIGHT, I'M NOT GOING TO PHYSICALLY HURT YOU IF YOU DON'T TALK. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING I CAN DO THAT WILL BE EVEN MORE PAINFUL. I WILL TAKE AWAY THE ONE THING YOU CARE FOR THE MOST-- KUVIRA. - WHAT DO YOU MEAN? - KUVIRA MIGHT WIN. SHE MIGHT CHASE US OUT OF THE CITY. BUT YOU WON'T BE AROUND TO ENJOY THE VICTORY. BECAUSE WHEREVER I RUN, I'LL TAKE YOU. I'M GOING TO MAKE IT MY LIFE'S MISSION TO NEVER LET YOU SEE THE ONE YOU LOVE AGAIN. IS TAKING THE CITY WORTH LOSING KUVIRA FOREVER? - YOU CAN'T. - I WILL. UNLESS YOU CONVINCE KUVIRA TO BACK OFF. YOU TWO WILL STILL HAVE THE EARTH EMPIRE, JUST LEAVE THE UNITED REPUBLIC ALONE. - IT'S KUVIRA. SHE WANTS TO TALK TO BAATAR. WHAT SHOULD I TELL HER? - FOR GOODNESS SAKE, GIVE ME THAT RADIO. LET ME TALK TO HER. KUVIRA, THIS IS RAIKO. WHAT KIND OF GAME ARE YOU PLAYING? YOU TOLD ME YOU WOULD SEND BAATAR OVER WITH YOUR TERMS, AND THEN HE DOESN'T SHOW. - WHAT DO YOU MEAN HE DIDN'T SHOW? - ACCORDING TO YOUR PEOPLE, HE'S NOT ON THE AIRSHIP. - IF HE'S NOT ON THE AIRSHIP THEN WHERE IS HE? - [radio transmission] KUVIRA, IT'S BAATAR. I'VE BEEN CAPTURED. MY AIRSHIP WAS AMBUSHED AND I WAS TAKEN BY FORCE. KORRA REFUSES TO RELEASE ME UNLESS WE BACK DOWN AND LEAVE THE CITY. - ARE YOU INJURED? - I'M FINE. - IS THE AVATAR THERE WITH YOU NOW? - YES. EVERYONE IS HERE. - FIND OUT WHERE THAT RADIO SIGNAL'S COMING FROM. - LISTEN TO ME. IF YOU TRY TO TAKE REPUBLIC CITY, THE AVATAR WILL NEVER LET ME SEE YOU AGAIN AND I REFUSE TO LIVE THAT WAY. FORGET THE UNITED REPUBLIC. WE HAVE OUR EMPIRE. WE HAVE EACH OTHER. LET'S GO BACK HOME AND GET MARRIED. THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS IS THAT WE'RE TOGETHER FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES. - WE'VE IDENTIFIED THEIR POSITION. - YOU'RE RIGHT, THIS CITY ISN'T WORTH SACRIFICING OUR LIFE TOGETHER. I LOVE YOU, BAATAR. - AS SOON AS WE WORK OUT TERMS WITH KUVIRA, WE'LL LET YOU OUT OF HERE. - GUYS! SHE MUST HAVE OUR LOCATION! SHE'S POINT THAT WEAPON RIGHT AT US. - NO, SHE WOULDN'T-- - EVERYONE OUT! NOW! NOW! - NO. - KEEP THE PRESIDENT SAFE. I'M GOING TO CHECK FOR SURVIVORS.
