Also, methinks Korra kept it open for Southern Water Tribe tourism. Make some good money selling "spirit equipment" and souvenirs.
I feel like Korra is secretly biased. Or not-so-secretly, actually.
Personally, I don't really like her as an Avatar. Aang had flaws, but they made him interesting, made him struggle to find his place between worlds. Korra just acts like a massive jerk to everybody, and her insecurities make me pity her in the way I pity the school bullies: sad for their problems, but absolutely not justifying beating up on my anti-bending protesting rally. Can nobody see the oppression?!?
This comic is a play on the fact that Tenzin and Kya were temporarily trapped in the Spirit World and saw Zhao briefly.
Can't stop laughing at this... it's just so perfect!
You have to wonder how he didn't wander out of the place before.
LOL, good ol' Zhao. This should happen. It'd be so perfect.
That episode (actually the whole story arc) was a nice nod to fans of the original series, with Zhao and Iroh and the similarities between some of Korra's and Aang's Avatar "stuff" - like when she tried to bind Vatu with the elements and Aang did the same to Ozai. I have to watch it again and see what other similarities I can find.
