Quick Thoughts on “The Calling”
Would it be out of line to call this episode “necessary filler?” I’m thinking about the three Airbending children having their little adventure to find Korra, and wondering why any of it needed to be there. I’ve got theories. I even have a few thoughts on how it could have been handled better. But as it is, it doesn’t seem to add anything of value to the story. Maybe a second viewing will clarify things, because right now, it felt like they already the Korra part figured out and still had half an episode with nothing in it, so they gave the kids some screentime.
Oh, and I guess Korra’s spiritual development is done now that the mercury has been taken out of her body. I’m not sure how to feel about that, especially with nine more episodes to go. Hmm…
In any case, what did you guys think about “The Calling?”
