Another episode of “The Legend of Korra” premiered on Nick.com on Friday, Oct. 17. Episode 2 of the of "The Legend of Korra" Book 4 was a big one for the show's final season. The Korra-only episode ended with one of the biggest surprises of the entire series -- the return of Toph from “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” Episode 3, “The Coronation,” would see Toph (Philece Sampler) helping Korra (Janet Varney) recover and find her Avatar groove again.
Check out three reveals from episode 3, “The Coronation”:
1. Coronation Crashers
As its title would suggest, episode 3 was centered around Price Wu’s (Sunil Malhotra) coronation ceremony. However, after the new Earth Kingdom king was crowned (with much less fanfare than he wanted) Kuvira (Zelda Williams) had a big surprise for all the world leaders. The military leader was expected to turn over power to Wu after the coronation, but Kuvira revealed at the ceremony that she had no such plans. She instead plotted to continue ruling over her new “Earth Empire” herself, threatening to crush anyone who stood in her way. The end of the episode also revealed that Kuvira was having Varrick (John Michael Higgins) work on a mysterious experiment with spirit vines.
2. Bolin and Mako
Episode 3 was a tough one for Bolin (P.J. Byrne) and Mako (David Faustino). Bolin was having second thoughts about continuing to work for Kuvira after her big takeover, but she convinced him it was for good of the people. Meanwhile, Mako, though opposing Kuvira, was increasingly frustrated looking after the incompetent Prince Wu. After rescuing him from some Kuvira supporters, Mako bluntly challenged Wu to be a better leader to the people.
3. Korra and Toph
As for the storyline fans were most excited about, Toph began training Korra in episode 3. However, when the (particularly harsh) training didn't go so well, Toph revealed that Korra still had metal from the Red Lotus poison in her body. Korra begged Toph to try and bend it out, but when Toph had trouble she blamed Korra for fighting her treatment. When Korra protested, Toph lectured that Korra perhaps did not want to recover and bear the responsibilities of being the Avatar again. Fans will have to wait until episode 4 to see if Korra can find the strength to return.
