After recovering from her abduction, Korra tells her story, later Asami asked Mako about his feelings for 
Korra because of what sh heard from Bolin, and Tenzin asks Lin to protect his family while he attends the 
morning's council meeting. Tenzin is attacked at City Hall and learns that the other council members have 
been captured by Equalists. Amon's Zeppelins are bombing Republic City as Tenzin reaches police 
headquarters, where he wires the United Forces for help. Forced to evacuate headquarters, Equalist 
mecha-tanks attack and capture Chief Saikhan and many officers. Korra and her friends rescue Tenzin. 
Meanwhile, Pema gives birth to Rohan as Equalist airships arrive at Air Temple Island. Lin Beifong and the 
airbender children defeat the invaders. While Korra goes into hiding, Tenzin flees with his family to preserve 
the last airbenders. Lin destroys an airship which pursues them, allowing the airbenders to escape, but Lin 
is captured and has her bending taken by Amon when she refuses to reveal Korra’s whereabouts. The 
episode closes with Korra's team entering the city sewers and General Iroh, commanding a fleet of United 
Forces warships, answering Republic City's plea for help. 


It amazed me at the name that Pema and Tenzin gave their newborn son because that name, Rohan, was 
from Lord of the Rings. It was where a tribe of horsemen live in Middle Earth. The horsemen of Rohan saved 
Helm's Deep at the end of "The Two Towers" and turned the tides of war against Saruman.

Rohan is also a Sanskrit name meaning healing or medicine.

This episode was what got me excited the most because it let me want to watch the next episode. This was
 basically the episode where the climax had happened in
