    • I assume it's just easier and faster to travel to the United Republic from the Fire Nation than it is from either Water Tribe.

    • Tenzin was ready to phone Korra's father in this latest episode, so why didn't they just try to conference call the meeting?

      But in Varrick's tale: Zaheer, Vaatu and Amon are doing a conerence call.

    • That's a good question. I was wondering the same thing. Mahybe they couldn't get away?

    • They can all meditate and meet in the spirit world.

    • Yeah, I was wondering where they were aswell. I'm thinking that Tonraq went back to the SW to find Korra, maybe, and that Desna and Eska went back to the NW because Desna got sick of sleeping in the tub ;).

    • I really don't know. At first, I was a little pissed beacuse Water Tribe are my favorite nation. I want to see more scenes of the Tribal Chiefs. I guess they couldn't go to RC because they have other bussiness to attend. (I guess that means Kuvira issue isn't that important to WTs.)


      Fire Lord Izumi was pretty awesome in that episode even though she has like 20 secs of screentime lol.

    • I hope it to be fine  explained.

    • I actually don't see why Fire Lord Izumi was there. It was at least a few weeks since the coronation, so it seems like she'd have gone back to the Fire Nation and it would make even less sense for her to have gone home and come back for this.

      Why aren't embassadors from Fire Nation and the Water Tribes there? Fire Lord is overkill, whereas no one from the Water Tribes being there is also stupid. The more I see of the UR, the less I understand its purpose. Why does it even exist?

      Did he actually say "phone"? Maybe he's just going to telegraph the message.

      But I think it's more a matter of practicality:

      - Raiko is the one that called the meeting, so he's going to be there.

      - Tenzin is influential enough in Capital City that Raiko can't just exclude him.

      - Izumi probably has the world's largest non-Earth Empire military force in the world, Raiko needs her help.

      If we assume that the Fire Nation military is much larger than the Water Tribes' combined military force (quite probable), then there is no real incentive for Raiko to call their representatives.

      That makes sense

      That's just stupid.

      Raiko: "Hey, let's not call the Water Tribes because they're not strong, and influential nation."

    • Couldn't Iroh just represent Izumi too?

      It's not, really. Whenever there's a significant global crisis in real life, usually the first nations called up are the permanent five of the UN Security Council, as well as nations that can actually contribute - that's generally how the world works. That being said, they're really the only other nation left in the world, so their absence was very weird (I expected to see at least some random ambassador, even if Tonraq was too busy...)

      It hasn't been that long since the Water Tribes had their (pseudo?) Civil War, and I doubt that the WTs have a military as strong as the Fire Nation. The FN - though they've probably reduced its size - will probably have a military as advanced as Republic City's. I don't see them willing to lose that technological edge, even in a time of peace. 

      Do we know if Iroh II is the Crown Prince? Or is he just a normal prince?

    • I wasn't that suprised to not see the WT chiefs at the meeting. The URN and the EE were the main nations involved in the conflict. The FN and AN were there to provide backup. I geuss the WT couldnt help because something else was going on. Who knows.

    • The WT still has citizens in RC though. So their interest in Kuvira running their citizens out of town (with military force) should've at least been shown in some form of representation in the meeting. As CommanderZeta says, any random WT ambassador would've sufficed. To not show up at all is just disrespectful to the WT citizens living or visiting RC.

    • to be honest the Kuvira cricis doesn't really effect them in any way and are in no immediate danger unlike the united republic who shares a border with the EE, the fire nation being a boat ride or airship ride away. The air nation is a bunch of global peacekeepers who might get involved in most if not all global problems now, The water tribes don't really have a political reason to get involved. The south may have economic reasons but thats what shipping is for.

      It directly affects RC, since Kuvira was attempting to recover the EK territory on which RC was founded. She was threatening the safety and livelihoods of WT people living throughout the URN.

      But why should the Water Tribes care for them? If they lived in the United Republic, they probably weren't citzens of the Northern or Southern Water Tribes.
