  • What I'm not entirely sure about is how exactly the apparition of Korra in the Avatar State kept the real Korra from returning to Republic City. Yes, it was unsettling, but it's not like Korra to just be scared off from the city and the people that she loves by what she thinks is a hallucination, even with the PTSD that she's going through. And even with that incident at that island, you'd think that she would want to get some mental and spiritual help from Tenzin and her friends. So what exactly about that vision made her change her mind?

    I mean, I figure that maybe she thought that the vision plus the action in Republic City would serve as a constant reminder of what happened to her that day or of the fact that she can't be the Avatar at that time. Or maybe she thought that she was going crazy and that her mental instability would endanger her friends. But I'd like someone else's thoughts on this.

    • I think the vision really just scared her that much - it's kind of implied that wherever it followed her to, she ended up leaving. When it finally showed up in the city, she decided it was time to stop running and finally face it head on for the first time. That and the fact that it compounded any apprehensions she may have had about not being ready to go back. Like she ends up saying in the Tree of Time, she's starting to feel like the rest of her recovery has to be brought about of her own will and self reflection. She feels that outside help won't be able to do anything anymore - people have been "saying that for years" - this is a personal journey that she feels can only be accomplished if she initiates and goes through with it.

      I don't know. Like I said, it's not like Korra to just be scared off from the people that she loves by what she thinks is a mere hallucination without there being a deeper reason, even with her PTSD. In the scenes between that scene and the earthbender fight, it looked more like she was just trying to ignore the apparition. And that "self-recovery" thing might be a factor, but I don't know. How would that vision make her think of that?

    • Anybody got any idea what that thing was? Or why it seemed to affect her like that?

    • I tought it was just a representation of her fears, like when Ryu fights Dark Ryu but he's not really there it is just a internal struggle.
