Legend of Korra S4E12+13: “You May Now Do The Thing”

Of the two series finales I watched this week, there’s really no question about which one provided the more satisfying ending. “The Newsroom” had kind of a blah finale, which I already wrote about in detail. “Legend of Korra,” on the other hand, closed out Book Four on a strong and kind of shocking note.

Hopefully they FINALLY tell us what happened to Zuko’s mother before Book Four closes.
