  • Watching YouTubers react to TLK, remembering YouTube comments when the entire TLK was on YouTube, old comments here, ect, there are so many theories about who was Amon and/or how he can take any bending that didn't pan out. Who had wrong theories at the time, on:

    1: Who Amon was. 2: How could Amon take away bending.

    With #1 I've seen people accuse Tarlock of being Amon, which is completely understandingly, but I have also been people accuse Aang, and Zuko of being Amon. Don't known how neither could work.

    With #2 I've seen predict that Amon is a bender, some believed what he was saying, some thing him taking away bending was staged, ect.

    Also, Asami and Ms.Sato.

    3: Asami's alliances. 4: Ms.Sato's alliances.

    I've seen people accuse Asami of being a spy. I've seen people flip flop ob whether Ms. Sato was a bad guy.

    • I figured:

      1. Amon was some nonbender connected to the original cast, having learned energybending on his own. In fairness, I still hold this makes way more sense than all of that nonsense about being Tarlock's brother.

      2. Hiroshi being an Equalist was too predictable, so it was actually going to be Asami who was masterminding the Equalists' weapons, embezzling from the company, & this was why she "just so happened" to get close to Team Avatar. By almost running over Mako, no less.

      Did you have a specific non-bender in mind ?

    • No, I was never able to arrive at a suspect.

    • I took Amon's original 'origin story' at face value, but guessing at which spirit(s) granted him his powers. I supposed that perhaps he struck a deal with Koh (probably the second most malevolent spirit we've encountered) and that would be the second reason he wore the mask... boy, how wrong I was. 

      Also when she first appeared I was certain Asami was gonna be a double-agent. She set off my too-pretty-not-to-be-evil-trope signal.

    • I favored the Koh theory myself as well and combined it with the concept of him being Yakone's son and Tarrlok's bro. In fact, here's the fanfic:

      The second part is more about Amon:}

      Feel free to comment.

    • I had no immediate reason to believe that Amon's backstory wasn't real.  Also, I had the horrible suspicion that either Asami was the Equalist agent, or that she was going to side with her dad when it turned out that it was him; that, after all, seemed like the most predictable route that they could take, what with pushing Makorra and all.  (Contrast with all of the Makorra 'shippers who desperately wanted Asami to be the mole, because how dare this "useless nonbender" and her eyeshadow...but I digress.)

      Also: I thought Asami was going to get air-n00b'd in Book 3 (which was apparently an idea they'd batted around), and was glad when she didn't (although I still kind of wish Pema had).
