In this week’s installment of Ember Island Airwaves, J and I discuss the incredibly draining experience of watching “The Ultimatum.” We explore classism and how the protagonist/antagonist relationships in The Legend of Korra directly contrast with those in Avatar: The Last Airbender. J and I then speculate about the fate of Tenzin and the other airbenders as well as Kai’s newfound heroism. Finally, we talk about the cliffhanger ending and what it could mean for the upcoming finale.
Please note that this podcast will contain spoilers up through “The Ultimatum.” As always, you can subscribe to Ember Island Airwaves using iTunes. Alternatively, you can listen to the episode online or download it here. Happy listening!
