“The Legend of Korra” is coming to an end fast with only one episode left in the series after Friday’s release of episode 11 of Book 4 on Nick.com. In episode 10, Korra (Janet Varney) learned that Kuvira (Zelda Williams) was planning an imminent attack on Republic City. Would she be able to come up with a way to save the city in “Kuvira’s Gambit?”

Check out three reveals from “The Legend of Korra” Season 4, episode 11:


With Kuvira on her way, President Raiko (Spencer Garrett) ordered the mandatory evacuation of the citizens of Republic City. Shockingly, Prince Wu (Sunil Malhotra) finally stepped up, giving an impassioned speech to the city to keep everyone calm and orderly during the evacuation. Perhaps, he would not make such a bad ruler after all.

Meanwhile, Varrick (John Michael Higgins) was reunited with Zhu Li (Stephanie Sheh), but he blew the happy reunion after responding to her kind apology with a quip about her being a good assistant. Varrick had bigger problems, though, as he struggled to finish the flying mecha- suits before Kuvira’s arrival.

The Early Bird

Korra set out with Mako (David Faustino) and Bolin (P.J. Byrne) to disable Kuvira’s spirit weapon before the dictator arrived with her army, but they instead found that Kuvira had left a week early and would be at the city any day. They rushed back to tell everyone, but it made no use.

When Kuvira arrived, Korra and Republic City had no counter for the spirit weapon, which Kuvira had mounted on a giant, 25-story tall mecha-suit that she controlled herself. Republic City was forced to surrender and Kuvira sent Bataar Jr. (Todd Haberkorn) to give President Raiko the terms.

Love Hurts

Korra was not content to let the city go down without a fight. She went with Tenzin (J.K. Simmons) and some of the other airbenders to kidnap Bataar Jr., hoping he would be able to give them information on how to stop the spirit weapon. After Bataar Jr. did not believe Korra’s threats of violence and was not swayed by Lin’s (Min Sterling) emotional appeal to come back home, Korra realized the only thing she could threaten him with was the possibility of never seeing Kuvira again.

Determined not to lose his fiancé, he agreed to call Kuvira and try to convince her to leave Republic City and be content with marrying him and ruling the Earth Kingdom. However, to Bataar Jr’s horror, when Kuvira learned his location she fired on the building with the spirit weapon hoping to kill everyone inside – Korra, Bolin, Mako, Lin, Tenzin, and Bataar Jr (among others). Fans will have to wait until the series finale next week to see if everyone survived the ruthless attack.
