There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Those jerks plucked the petals off of the city!
10 episodes into the season and this is the first time we see any real affection between these two. It's been too long, and I am seriously doubting her commitment to Percy's Batar Jr's sparkle motion.
No One Respects President Raiko
Raiko: You guys, I'm the president, you can't just WALK in here whenever you want!
Everyone Else: No one cares because SUPER WEAPON.
Zhu Li Returns
Aww, she's so cute! Loved Bolin's not so subtle hints to Varrick here. Of course, Varrick blows it.
You Better Respect
BOW DOWN TO ZHU LI. I loved her outburst here. Super satisfying to see her finally let Varrick have it.
Mako, You're Scaring People
I love Lin's face in this whole scene. You can just see her going, " You're supposed to calm people, Mako. That's just gonna freak em out! I knew this was a bad idea."
Now everyone is brave enough to go to the bathroom by themselves. I know a few toddlers that could use this speech. It was good to see Wu step in like that. Wudo's to you Wu!
You haven't aged a day...
It's always comforting when you have family willing to go to bat for you. Even the kids are behind you Tenzin! But...is Rohan a bender? Will we ever know!?
Iroh's here too!
It's like a reunion from season 1, except Zombie Amon wasn't invited.
The city streets are almost always populated in this series. I loved how unsettling the quiet abandoned scenery felt in these scenes.
When did this become Pacific Rim?
Well, that was unexpected. Were you surprised? Because I'm REALLY surprised.
My jaw dropped okay? I mean this mecha thing came out of the left field for me! Frankly, I have a lot of questions, but mostly I wanna know where the Guard says,
"Now all of China The United Republic knows you're here."
Of course with a machine like that the only one who can drive it would be Kuvira. Can't hate on that, if it were my army I'd like to drive it too. Really loving the controls here as well!
Honestly, I'm surprised Korra and company didn't just internally nope out. Okay, well, we all know Asami's sitting there thinking, "If I could get my hands on that!"
I just loved how awesome all the airbenders looked. I was really rooting for the airbenders to start protecting the city and seeing awesome airbender battle in action. Too bad Kuvira had to go all over powered and ruin that. Jerk.
Kuvira is OP
I actually cackled at this point. Everything is so laughably unfair for the United Forces.
Kuvira blasted those ships and probably killed hundreds. Does she care? Probably not.
This guy just can't catch a break.
Obligatory Fart Joke
"Things are getting too heavy. Put a fart joke on it." Can we also talk about how Ikki was snubbed and didn't whine?
Capturing Batar Jr
I loved this sequence not only because it was a win, but because all I can think of when I see Tenzin and Bumi in their suits are those onesie pajamas. For some reason it's cool with the younger kids, but these two older dudes? HILARIOUS.
A bluff it may be, but it still impressed me.
No One Respects Raiko - Part 2
Raiko: The negotiator isn't here?
Guards: Uh, we can't find him.
Raiko: This is so unprofessional. I'm embarrassed for them, really.
Heart to Heart
A one sided heart to heart really, but what can you do. You didn't fail your son, Su. He's just a jerk. Remember Toph's dad? That dude was a jerk too. Run's in the family.
I thought Korra's threat to keep
Percy Batar Jr away from Kuvira forever was a pretty clever one. Though the logistics of it would be kind of insane when you think about it.
No One Respects Raiko - Part 3
I kept waiting for Raiko to yell at Kuvira like he was some kind of high school principal.
Three Way Phone Call
Batar Jr is obviously really broken up by Korra's threat, but Kuvira doesn't really seem to care. I really wish we got to see Kuvira some what emotional during this call, even if it was anger or happiness. Kuvira, just show me you feel something!
Seriously, Kuvira? Really? You can't just break up with him?
Out Run the Gun
Can I just say how beautifully shot and animated this was? Can I also say I'm gonna be really pissed if someone is dead/dies because of this?
A lot of people are going around calling Kuvira a bitch for this move, but you know what?
Bitches get stuff done.

I’m not sure if Korra jumped the shark this week or not. However, I am sure that “Kuvira’s Gambit” definitely blew my mind and I loved every second!
Percy Batar Jr finally show some affection for one another (and it’s short lived)! Zhu Li returned! Tenzin and Bumi doing secret missions in Airbender pajamas! And that MechSuit?! With so much going on and so many things blown apart, wrapping the series up could be a challenge. There’s a lot to settle in the course of two episodes! It’s hard to believe there’s only one week left of Korra before it’s all over. I’m gonna miss ya’ll so much. *sniff*
