The scene opens into a blazing yellow light, punctuated by flowing swirls of pale yellow and green. Two women emerge from the light, holding hands and glancing in the direction of the other, smiling. Once they leave the portal behind, they emerge into the clearing, with its dark sky streaked with purplish clouds above, its floor of pink, open-toothed flowers and gnarled, ancient trees, and its high sheer walls of ice with white-bluish spirits roaming around. The woman on the left, Asami, leaves her companion, Avatar Korra, behind, momentarily lost in amazement at the sight; she runs a short distance away as Korra speaks.
Korra Welcome to the Spirit World.
Asami [Still looking around, smiling widely.] I can't believe I'm actually here.
Korra [Walking to Asami's side and extending a hand, a bluish bird spirit landing gently on it.] The Spirit World is a pretty unpredictable place. You never know when the ground might drop right out from under you. So, stay close. I don't want us to get separated.
Asami [Glancing to Korra and the spirit, smiling.] Me either ...
As she pauses, the frame moves behind them for a spread of the scene before them. The world opens onto a wide valley. Its floor is dotted with rocks and smoothly flowing groves of trees and populated by a few spirits grazing on the valley floor. A path fenced in by standing stones leads into the woods on the right, while a river, complete with oversized mushrooms and an antlered serpent spirit, runs down the left side. Among the spirits flying in the sky, which becomes increasingly red toward the horizon, is the dragon bird spirit that Korra carried to its mountaintop nest three years prior, flying directly toward them.

Korra and Asami are silent for a moment, gazing at the view, before Asami breaks the silence.

Asami So ... where do we start our vacation?
The next few shots are presented as a montage. Korra and Asami, all smiles, climb onto the back of the yellow dragon bird spirit, which beats its wings as it takes to the air again; the two walk down a grassy path under the shadows of tall lily pads under the watchful eyes of several spirits; they hop from cap to cap over a forest of oversized mushrooms; they dive deep into the water of a spring, the light filtering around them into shades of pink, purple, and blue; they sit on a blanket, looking up at a waterfall in the fading light, the water twisting like a fluttering ribbon as it makes its way to the pond below.

Some time later, the two find themselves standing before a short, weathered cliff. After looking up at it, they glance at each other.

Asami You thinking what I'm thinking?
Korra Race you to the top!
The two set their packs on the ground and begin the competition. Two quick shots zoom on Asami's foot, pushing off a crumbling foothold as she climbs, and Korra's hand, grasping a handhold. Leading the race by a few feet, Asami looks to her right where Korra is a little bit below her.
Asami Looking a little slow, Avatar!
Korra I'm going easy on you!
In that moment, the cliff begins to shake. The unexpected motion catches them by surprise, and they hold tightly on to their precarious places on the rock.
Asami Wh-what's happening?
Korra [As it sways suddenly more violently.] Whoa!
The shot cuts to the opposite side of the rock itself; Korra and Asami have been climbing on the back of a spirit, whose body makes up the monolith itself. As it straightens itself, it opens its massive, jagged jaw and speaks.
Rock spirit Who dares climb upon me?
Korra I'm sorry, noble spirit! We didn't realize --
Rock spirit I should've known -- pesky humans!
The spirit's arms, not physically attached to the rest of its form, rotate around to its back, where its hands grab Korra and Asami between its thumbs and index fingers, lifting them off itself.
Korra [Annoyed.] I'm not pesky, I'm the Avatar!
Rock spirit Even worse! I didn't complain when you kept the Northern and Southern portals open -- [It brings the two around to its face, looking specifically at Korra.] But creating a new one has gone too far. The human and spirit worlds should have remained separate.
Korra [Awkwardly, smiling nervously.] The new portal was kind of an accident --
Apparently having heard enough, the spirit flings them away from him, sending them flying through the air, screaming.
Rock spirit Leave my realm and never return!
Asami [As both of them tumble.] Korra!
Korra Hang on! I got you!
As they begin to fall to the ground, Korra airbends herself around to face Asami and bending a cushion between Asami and the rapidly approaching ground. When the impact comes, Asami's back is to the air cushion, and the impact, while still a hard one, is lessened. As the dust settles, Korra, lying face-down on the ground, raises herself on her arms, looking at Asami.
Korra Asami! Are you okay? Talk to me!
In response, Asami sits up and spits the dirt from her mouth. Korra lets out a sigh of relief and sits up as well.
Korra [Downcast.] What a disaster ... I wanted our first big getaway to be perfect, not almost get us killed. I'm sorry.
Asami [Dusting herself off.] We've been through a lot worse together. And I'm not going to let one disgruntled spirit ruin all the fun we had. You shouldn't either.
Korra You're right.
Asami [Standing and helping Korra to her feet.] But unfortunately, we lost all our supplies, so we should probably think about heading back to the city.
Korra Sure ...
As a breeze begins to blow, Asami maintains her hold on Korra's hand. Korra looks up at Asami.
Asami Before we go, there's one last thing I want to do on our vacation.
As they look into each other's eyes, Korra's disappointed expression changes to a soft smile. As the breeze blows around them, carrying leaves tinted red in the pinkish light of sunset, they kiss. They separate after a few moments but stay close to each other, their noses resting on each other's with their eyes shut as they enjoy the moment, smiling contently.
Korra This has been a wonderful few days.
Asami The best.
Korra and Asami, on their way back to the spirit portal, are walking through a forest, as spirits fly around and above them.
Korra Remember when we first met, and you took me racecar driving?
Asami I remember how terrified you were.
Korra Was not! [They come to the edge of a river.] Anyway ... what I remember the most was how relieved I felt.
Asami Relieved?
Korra Yeah. My whole life, I was always told I was too wild, too emotional, too intense. But it turned out you could be just as intense as me. I've never had anyone in my life who got me the way you do.
Asami [Looking away, somber.] The three years you were gone were the longest of my life. I think that's when I realized how much you meant to me. I almost told you in one of my letters.
Korra Why didn't you?
Asami You'd already been away for so long ... I guess I was scared if you didn't feel the same way, then maybe you'd never come back. How about you? When did you know how you felt?
Korra After I was poisoned ... you were there for me when I couldn't even be there for myself. [Turns to face Asami.] But I was so messed up back then. My mind was in a million different places. I didn't know if how I felt about you was real or not. But it wasn't an accident that you were the only one I wrote to when I was gone.
Asami [Placing her hand on Korra's shoulder.] I'm glad you did.
A dragon-bird spirit approaches Korra and Asami through the sky.
Korra Looks like our ride's here.
Asami [As the spirit stops in the ground.] How does this dragon-bird keep knowing where to find us?
Korra I think it can sense where I am. Not every spirit hates me.
Asami [As she starts to ride the spirit.] I wish we could stay longer. Once we're back in the city, I doubt we'll have a moment to rest.
Korra [The spirit takes off.] Maybe our vacation doesn't have to end just yet ...
Korra whispers in the spirit's ear.
Asami What do you mean? Korra, where are we going?
Korra It's a surprise.
The spirit arrives to the North and South portals.
Asami Wait, these portals won't take us back to Republic City.
Korra [As she and Asami start to get off the spirit.] I thought we could visit my parents before we head back.
Asami Your parents? It's just ... I mean, they're great, but I don't know if --
Korra It'll be fine! They're going to be thrilled when we tell them about us. Come on!
The scene focuses on the Southern Water Tribe Royal Palace, where they received Tonraq and Senna.
Tonraq [As he hugs his daughter.] Korra, what a surprise! We didn't expect you. I thought you were still on vacation.
Senna [After hugging Asami.] What did you think of the Spirit World, Asami?
Asami It was quite an adventure -- but we had to cut our trip a little short.
Tonraq Why? Are you two all right?
Korra We're fine, dad. Nothing we couldn't handle togheter.
Senna [As she places the hand in her daughter's shoulder.] How about we talk over dinner? You girls must be starving.
Korra, Asami, Tonraq, and Senna enter the palace and start dinning in a room.
Korra It smell delicious, mom.
Senna Thanks, sweetie. So, I'm excited to hear all about your trip.
Korra [She looks at Asami.] Well ... [She looks at her parents.] it was ... fun. Really fun.
Tonraq and Senna look each other, with strange faces.
Tonraq [Looking at the girls.] Sounds ... fun.
Korra [Nervous.] I'm just going to come out and say it ... wow, I didn't think I'd be this nervous.
Senna Whatever it is, you can tell us.
Korra So, as you know, Asami and I have been friends for a long time ... and, well ... [Asami puts her over Korra's.] ... I mean, I'm just surprised as anyone ...
Korra and Asami look each other in happy glow, while their hands are still together.
Asami Your daughter is incredible. And I'm so thankful she feels the same way about me.
Korra What we're trying to say is ...
Korra and Asami We're together.
Tonraq and Senna look at them with surprise as they take in the news, but a few seconds later, they are delighted.
Tonraq [Leaning forward.] That's not what I expected to hear, but I couldn't be more pleased!
Senna [Clasping her hands together.] It's wonderful! [Hugging Korra.] I'm so happy for you two.
Korra [Hugging back her mother.] Thanks, mom.
Senna also hugs Asami while Tonraq stands up of the table.
Tonraq So, who else have you told?
Korra You two are the first. But I guess once we get back to Republic City, everyone will know.
Tonraq Just be careful, Korra. It's best to keep your personal life private.
Korra [With an angry face.] What's that supposed to mean?
Senna I think what your father is trying to say is: not everyone will be so accepting.
Korra So? That's their problem. I don't care what they think. I'll tell whoever I want.
Tonraq Just don't get ahead of yourself, Korra. Sometimes you get a little too excited and --
Korra I've dealt with a lot of narrow-minded people. I just didn't realize you were one of them.
Senna Korra ...
Asami [Linking with Korra's arm, trying to comfort her.] Maybe we should go.
Korra Good idea.
Korra takes Asami by her hand and leaves the place. However, Tonraq and Senna follow them to the door.
Senna But you just got here.
Tonraq Korra, please. I didn't mean to upset you.
Korra Too late for that!
The scene moves ahead to later in the evening. Korra and Asami are driving a snowmobile away from the Royal Palace and toward the Southern Spirit Portal.
Korra I'm sorry about my parents. Sometimes they can be so ... insensitive.
Asami They were just being overcautious. And I kind of understand where they're coming from.
Korra You do?
Asami Listen -- I'm not embarrassed or ashamed to be with you at all. So if you wanted to tell the world about us, I'd be right behind you.
Korra parks the snowmobile near the grove of trees surrounding the portal, before the two women dismount and start walking toward it.
Asami But there's a selfish part of me that wants you all to myself ... at least for a little while longer. I guess that's why I was hesitant to tell your parents in the first place.
Korra [Now looking guilty.] I'm such an idiot. You were trying to tell me you didn't want to go and I just steamrolled over your feelings. My dad's right, I do get overexcited. I'm sorry.
Asami [Turning to look at her, smiling.] It's all right. I'm excited too. But what we have, it's kind of like the Spirit World -- it's special and rare. And not everyone is going to see it that way.
Korra Asami, no matter what anyone says about us, I'll have your back. You can count on that.
Asami Same here.
Korra and Asami enter the portal. Cut to the new portal in Republic City, daytime. Korra and Asami emerge from the portal to hear someone yelling somewhere to their left, and glance in the direction of the voice.
Wonyong Keum You have ten seconds to vacate this area, or I'll call the police!
The frame moves to the edge of the crater containing the portal to reveal the speaker, Wonyong Keum, and a small group of Air Nomads, including Jinora, Kai and Opal. Both Keum and the Air Nomads glare at each other. Behind Keum, a trio of builders are surveying the land, while a group of spirits, including the dragon eel spirit, hover near the Air Nomads.
Wonyong Ten ... nine ... eight ...
Jinora You can keep counting, but we're not going anywhere!
Kai Yeah!
Opal You tell him, Jinora!
Wonyong [Walking toward Jinora.] Listen, young lady, you and your air associates need to go back to your island. This is my property!
Jinora This land is sacred now! It belongs to the spirits.
Korra Looks like our vacation's officially over.
Korra and Asami start walking up the slopes of the crater towards where Wonyong and Jinora are arguing, Korra soon pulling ahead of Asami. As they do so, Jinora takes notice of them and runs over.
Jinora Korra, you're back!
Korra What's going on?
Jinora We were having a nice, quiet meditation session around the portal when that guy showed up, yelling at us to leave.
Korra Who is he?
Wonyong [Stepping forward.] Wonyong Keum. Pleased to make your acquaintance, Avatar Korra.
Asami [Distastefully.] What are you doing here?
Wonyong Miss Sato? Why, I almost didn't recognise you. The last time I saw you--
Asami I was fourteen and you'd just walked out on an important deal with my father.
Wonyong That was business, nothing personal. And I'm very sorry to hear what happened to your father.
Asami I don't want your condolences.
Unnoticed by anyone, the dragon eel spirit starts flying towards where Korra, Asami and Wonyong are talking, as Wonyong turns towards Korra.
Wonyong Anyway--Avatar Korra, if you would be so kind as to escort these interlopers off my land.
Jinora Korra, don't listen to him. He's trying to turn this whole area into an amusement park! He wants to build a road so he can drive truckloads of tourists into the Spirit World!
Wonyong [Amused.]She makes it sound so crass. This will be a state-of-the-art experience for the discerning traveller! The Spirit World is a wondrous and beautiful place--everyone should have the opportunity and access to experience it, don't you think?
Korra [Unsure.] Well...
Asami [Angry.] The Spirit World is a beautiful place. And that's why people like you shouldn't be allowed anywhere near it!
Wonyong [Takes out the land deeds and brandishes them in her face.] You can yell at me all you like, but it won't do any good. Keum Enterprises owns this land. And these deeds give me the right to do whatever I want with it.
Dragon eel spirit [Suddenly appearing right in front of Wonyong, who yelps and recoils in shock as the spirit glares at him.] You're just another human who refuses to respect the sacred. You think a piece of paper gives you the right to ravage and plunder the Spirit World?
Wonyong does not reply, and the Dragon eel spirit turns towards Korra.
Dragon eel spirit I urge you to close the portal, Avatar. It was never meant to be here and humans like this man will only exploit it.
Korra Not long ago I came to you for help and you said spirits wouldn't get involved in human conflicts--why are you so interested now?
Dragon eel spirit [Turns to look at the new portal.] Because now there is a portal to the Spirit World in the middle of a metropolis. I have no choice but to protect my kind.
Korra I understand you want to keep the spirits safe. We all do. But shutting the portal isn't the answer.[Addressing the assembled Air Nomads and spirits.] And I'm not just saying that because I almost died when this portal was created. I truly believe that this new spiritual energy will have a harmonious effect on the people of Republic City.
Having heard her decision, the Dragon eel spirit flies a short distance away from Korra towards the Spirit Portal, before turning around to look at her.
Dragon eel spirit Very well, Avatar. I can't force you to close the portal. But I will hold you responsible for keeping it safe.
The spirit then dissipates. As Korra watches it go, Asami walks up and places a hand on her shoulder, causing Korra to turn and look at her with a smile.
Asami You won't have to protect it alone.
Opal Yeah. We're all here to help.
Wonyong [Walking up to Korra and angrily raising a finger at her.] This still doesn't change the fact that you are all trespassing on my land! I want you out of here immediately!
Korra Oh yeah?
Korra closes her eyes and enters the Avatar State. Opening her now glowing eyes, she uses airbending to ascend a few meters off the ground atop a swirling vortex of air, before looking down at Wonyong, the developer covering his face with his arms.
Korra Leave. NOW!
Wonyong Let's get out of here!
Wonyong and his building crew jump into their vehicles and hurriedly flee from the scene. With them gone, Korra leaves the Avatar State and descends gently back to the ground as the vortex dissipates.
Jinora [Impressed.] I doubt he'll be back anytime soon.
Korra [Closing her eyes and smiling.] Sometimes a little Avatar intimidation goes a long way.
