Oh! My Gods!
This was... incredible.
I can't even begin to describe how happy and emotional I am about the finale.
The entire first half (Day of the Colossus was incredible! The fights, the different tactics used against the Mecha, Milo being a serious kick-ass instead of JUST a comic relief (which he still was, sufficiently), Sato Sr.'s sacrifice... Just wow
Kuvira's storyline ended somewhat anticlimactically for HER at least, but it was huge for Korra in many aspects - but the one thing that got me the most, well...
I'm a Korrasami shipper. I've been since I started watching. It wasn't even a crack-ship.
I just figured - like most implied same sex relationships on television, that they wouldn't have the guts to pull it off despite heavily hinting towards it for two seasons.
But oh boy did they deliver.
So yeah, no kiss, but dayum there was everything else you could have ever wanted and much more. It is, to me, unquestionable that they entered the spirit portal as lovers. The fact that Bryke had the guts - not to mention approval from Nick - to pull this off, means we're truly entering a new era of television where hetero-normativity is finally giving way even in what's supposed to be a children's show.
I'm in tears. Well done, Bryke. Well done.
