There has already been very interesting discussions on 'If its possible" for korra to reconnect with her past lives ( I am of the opinion that she can) But I havnt come across a discussion on "if she should". I am of the opinion that this would be best. I have already mentioned that, as Roku explained to Aang in The Avatar State, one of the biggest strengths of the avatar is the all of the knowladge, and power that comes from all of the avatars past lives. Plus, no one can really teach an avatar how to be an avatar except for a past avatar (I used the word avatar way to many times there).

What did toph say when she saw here parents again? For me, since the new series jumps so far into the future wih only flash backs and katara to bridge the gap (comic books not with standing), the new series is really good, but its just missing a certian something that the first series had. I do love the how the creators infused the avatar world with technological and cu…Read more >
