Description for Legend of Korra Book 2: Episode 6 ‘The Sting’ Released

The description for episode 6 ‘The Sting’ has been released and it looks like the writers have added a bit more shock value to this one. “When Triad activity threatens to put Future Industries out of business, Mako performs an investigation and uncovers a conspiracy.” Episode 6 promises to reveal some sort of triad-related conspiracy, which likely has something to do with the bombings. Instinct would tell you that the President is probably plotting against the Avatar, but that analysis would be too obvious of a plot twist.

The writers really set the stage during Friday’s episode to make the President look as shady as possible. When I saw the word “conspiracy”, my first thought was the President. But that’s what writers want you to think. They want to toy with your minds and make you believe things that are false in all actuality.

The President may seem like a future antagonist, but things are not always as they seem.

Besides the conspiracy, there’s an entirely different story arc focusing on Korra and her cousins. ‘Peacekeepers’ ended with Korra essentially being eaten by a Spirit. She obviously survives the attack, but it’ll be interesting to see how her cousins react.

Will they tell Unalaq that Korra is dead? Or will they just say that there was interference by the Dark Spirits? ‘Peacekeepers’ really set the stage for what looks to be a fantastic season. I expect ‘The Sting’ to branch off of that and continue to evolve the plot into something more complex.

What are your expectations for the next episode?

    I hope it’s not the president. I mean, it’s ridiculous that people are claiming that he’s evil because he didn’t want to go to war with the North- Korra had no evidence whatsoever that her uncle was not the real chief of the Watertribes, and as far I know, they hadn’t done anything to the citizens yet. From an outsider’s perspective, Korra’s father and people tried to murder Unalaq and then start a rebellion. Who wants to get involved in that?

    Also, if the president is evil, then I’ll be extremely disappointed. Too damn predictable, just like Unalaq. The writers aren’t trying to toy with out minds- they’re flat out putting mysterious characters on the table and making them villains asap.

    The animation is so bad, so I’m excited for Mir to come back. I lol’d at someone on tumblr saying that it would be the closest “second coming of Jesus” we’ll ever see in our lifetimes.

    • daniel yefru

      yea korra isnt good with politics……

    • lordoffantasy

      ………….. unalaq is not that predictable actually. you would think that after getting exposed by korra he would seek to kill his brother and end the rebellion… but instead he is ignoring it and focusing on protecting the portal………… and oddly enough he made korra think that he could open the northern portal without her for unknown reasons……… no unalaq…..i am having a hard time getting a bead on him. it looked as if he had just been exposed as a full on villa the episode prior, but now that is in doub.t true he is corrupt and manipulative, yet he is in fact focusing on the things he said he wanted to focus on. he is prioritizing the portal over anything else and ignoring his brother. and some reason he wanted korra to attack him at that prison……… and we sitll do not know WHY he is doing all of this.

      the president i think is a villain, but not in the typical corrutp sense. he is a villain because i have a strong sense that he wants nothing more than to ensure the avatar cannot tamper with the united nations……. it is not insurrection when the reincarnation of a bieng of a thousand life times wants to stop a civil war. especially when that beings’ prior life is the sole reason republic city stands. instead of just completely ignoring the conflict and korra, he should have negotiated. becuase ultimately it is the avatar that is the ultimate force on earth. the avtar is there to ensure the world does not fall to chaos and stagnation………….. and if korra some reason ends up destroying republic city and tis government to do so…… it would be far from the first time an avatar had to destroy what his or her past life created.

      • sveltesvengali

        Agreed on the former count – Unalaq’s motives, while still dark and possibly somewhat sinister, still seem to be in question – though I’m speculating that Varrick will be the one behind the bombings (ie. a surprise antagonist or at least a very, very morally dubious ally), due to Word of God that he may be willing to work with Triad-types and these screenshots from one of the trailers, where Mako and Asami appear to be fighting people in boats bearing the logo of Varrick’s company on them (http://forums.avatarspirit.net/index.php?topic=22723.msg2310262#msg2310262), not to mention his previous attempts to lobby for his business interests and spark a civil war by any means necessary, as well as even engage in war profiteering.

  • sako

    just thought id share that legend of korra is currently trending at number 1 on yahoo news. probably not for long but pretty exciting

  • Kailee

    Yea the president seems a bit shady….. but I doubt that he’s evil. It’s just 2 predictable. Anyways, there are two things that are bugging me…..
    1. Jinora hasn’t really been included in the past couple of episodes.
    2. Who the fuck is OPAL?? I literally have no idea of who she could possibly be!!!

    • AAH MY CABBAGES

      Opal? Oh yea the one that Alyson Stoner is voicing. Have they even given any information about her at all? Before book 2 started I thought that opal was Eska, but now I have no clue. Maybe she’s Korra’s friend or something.

      • Cory

        I like your name. Haha (:

      • Trent

        That would totally suck if something happens to Korras parents. If something does happen to them…. O shiiit makos in trouble. Cuz honestly if he didn’t say anything to the president, irohs fleet would’ve been able to leave and deal with the swt and nwt problem.

        • Azula2.0

          Why did you reply twice that said the same thing?

          • Trent

            O because I thought the first one didn’t go through so I rewrote it again.

      • Trent

        That would suck if something happens to Korra’s parents. If something does happen to them….Oooh shiiiit Mako’s in trouble!!!! Cuz honestly if he didn’t say anything to the president, then irohs fleet would’ve been able to leave and deal with the SWT and nwt problem.

        • lordoffantasy

          ……….they could not deal with it i argue. they can definitely help the south, but that would only be iroh’s fleet, as badass as he is.

    • Kyle Edgecomb

      In wasnt specified which book Opal was going to be in, she might be in Book 3

    • Ako Si David

      i dont know who she is, but i’m sure she’s not an airbender…

    • PurplePlatypusBear

      My guess? Zuko’s daughter, the current fire lord.

  • MG

    When Sokka was abducted by the Panda Spirit Hei Bai, he ended up in the spirit world until when Aang managed to appease the spirit. Aang’s brush with Hei Bai in rescuing Sokka brought him to the spirit world.

    Similarly, I believe that Korra DID indeed survive the spirit attack, but was rather transported to the spirit world. I’m pretty sure Korra would be distressed at the loss of her bending (I think Keval has mentioned it in a previous post) and she has to find unlikely Spirit World allies to bring her back to the physical world. Might be where Korra encounters Avatars Roku and Kyoshi.

    On the topic of the bombings, I may suspect that Varrick is behind the works. Pre-season, Varrick’s bio rumoured that he has some brushes with the triads, though unconfirmed. The bombings further escalated distrust against the North, which Varrick has already been planning to through propaganda.

    Not to mention Varrick is more concerned about business. His opposition of Unalaq’s takeover was because his wealth was threatened, and thus he hired a bunch of rebels. The propaganda film also advertised his dye brand. It wouldn’t be far fetched of him to possibly undermine Future Industries, since once Future Industries has revived, Varrick’s shares would dwindle too.

    • Kyle Edgecomb

      Or she will come across the face stealer……he did say to aang they would meet again….possibly meant in another lifetime

  • james

    Republic city have both North and Southern population, so going war with North is not possible for Republic city. so Actions of president is acceptable.

    • Ace

      I would have to disagree. While it is true that Republic City is comprised of people of both tribes, that is of no consequence whatsoever. The facts are that the Southern Water Tribe is under attack by the Northern Water Tribe and so it is pretty much up to the President, as the Commander-in-Chief of the United Forces, to help the Southern Water Tribe. The reason Republic City was created was so that people of all nations could live in peace, and so it should guard that peace, wherever it is in the world it is being challenged. The President, however, is a good for nothing weakling who doesn’t want to get involved in a war just because it isn’t his own, even though the reason for the existence of the United Forces is to keep peace and unite. How can that be done if the South is being attacked by the North? Never mind attacking the North, what about defending the South? The Preisdent is wrong and he needs to take action to defend the people of the South and their rights.

      • Johnny

        Sorry, too simplistic an analysis. Think about the parallel in our world — UN cannot simply step in to take action. Would the Fire Nation or Earth Kingdom reps agree with this approach? Probably not, given the precedent it would set.
        Further, what you are arguing for basically makes the Avatar obsolete — which may be the case as the world evolves, but is a different issue.

        • lordoffantasy

          ….ufnrotuantely no, the avatar will never be so called ‘obsolete’. the avatar acts as the mitigator between not only the spirits and man, but man and man. the problem is that could mean a number of things. with aang it was to stop a hundred year long war. yet with the last airbender before aang, she created peace by slaying any who would dare upset the balance of the world, as the president is diong by sitting on his hands…………………………………………………… nwhat is giong on is not the avatar no longer being needed, it is the world desperately trying to shackle the most powerful being on earth. it is very, very obviuos to me that the president wants nothing more than to ensure korra has no poltiical say so, despite being the avatar. a young impulsive avatar, but sitll the next in the reincarnation cycle of the beign who protects the world. korra may well need to do nothing short of one day destroying republic city with her own hands should the president become more corrupt in his intentions…… it would not be the first time an avatar had to destroy the creation of a previous life. the Dai Lee from the first series were the creation of avatar Kyoshi after she dethroned the earth king for his warmongering. and if republic city will bind the avatar and prevent her from protecting the world, then the avatar must and iwll break it.

  • james

    I think the Spirit that attacked korra is a good spirit. it just wants to get korra to the spirit world.

    • crystalline

      Agreed.

  • m

    I don’t know, it really wouldn’t surprise me if the President was part of a conspiracy with Unalaq. I mean, when it comes to politics you either have to listen to your constituents or your biggest sponsor, and the President didn’t seem concerned with either. And don’t say it’s because he’s good or whatever that he didn’t go to war with water tribe, it wouldn’t surprise me if Unalaq bought him out also. Plus his adamant stance on the war is really telling. He doesn’t care about the Southerners, or that there’s a war going on, despite the fact that it’s tense enough even amongst the watertribe citizens of Republic city to cause trouble. Either he just doesn’t care at all which makes him a complete idiot and a terrible leader, is trying to undermine Korra’s authority, or he’s part of the conspiracy. Also, judging by Eska and Desna’s reactions to the giant dark spirit, and that Korra’s bending didn’t work on it, I think Unalaq is able to control the spirits themselves, or influence them either positively or negatively. It seems like they always show up at opportune times, and I seriously doubt Korra didn’t learn the technique to calming them down. Unalaq’s studied the spirits for years, and I’m guessing the conspiracy is that he can control the spirits, and might be planning to team up with the triads to take over either both the South and Republic city, or to take over the spirit portals and control the spirit world/enter it himself.

    • Hi

      Impossible, the Avatar is the bridge between the spirit world and the ‘material world (as Unalaq puts it) you can’t get in or out without the Avatar

      • Cdwoods

        Uncle iroh would beg to differ.

        • Hi

          Yeah that’s true but Unalaq is not like Iroh, he abuses his spiritual powers

    • PurplePlatypusBear

      Unalaq wasn’t controlling the spirit to eat Korra, though it is an interesting theory that my end up coming into play in further episodes. But if Unalaq was trying to get the spirit to kill or attack Korra, he wouldn’t have told Eska and Desna to bring Korra back alive. Also, if he could have used the spirit to bring Korra to him, he wouldn’t have needed to send Eska and Desna in the first place. This isn’t solid proof, but I really think that the spirit only transported Korra to the spirit world, and wasn’t trying to kill her.

  • jonas

    This is the first time that I cannot point out the ‘evil’ character. I mean:
    -> Unalaq is not ‘evil’ evil, he really thinks he’s doing the right thing and from his point of view he actually is. The south has become decadent and capitalistic. In the short time he’s there he stopped the everstorm and released the lights. Unfortunately he uses less than justifiable means to reach his goal….
    -> the president is doing what he’s supposed to do. Not meddling in foreign affairs. Especially with the lack of information he has. He knows that choosing sides would mean another uprising in RC and they’re still recovering from the previous one!
    -> The twins are just creepy and follow their fathers orders…

    • Kataangshipper

      I agree with you for the most part about the twins and the president. The twins were raised to follow their father’s orders, and the president doesn’t want to do anything too serious. But I think Unalaq is truly evil. I don’t think that he believes he is doing the right thing because he is hiding the truth about his rise to power (betraying his brother, hiring the barbarians, etc). If he truly thought his intentions were “right” then wouldn’t he proud of what he did? I feel that Unalaq will do ANYTHING to obtain power, even if that means betraying his brother, and going against the avatar. Now, isn’t that what makes a person truly evil, betraying those closest to them and lying to the majority of the world?

      • sveltesvengali

        I think it may be evil in practice, but, however unjustified his beliefs may be, he may have conceived of himself as the only philosopher-king enlightened enough to restore spirituality to the Water Tribes (and perhaps the world–sort of like Plato in his later authoritarian phase), and also bear in mind that the way he manipulated events was largely dependent on expecting others to act like they usually did (after all, he could have only strongly suspected that his brother would act impulsively and destroy the spirit forest in his rashness–he wasn’t the one directly goading him to do it, because Tonraq did it on his own).

        • Kataangshipper

          I never really thought that he just planned on others acting as they usually did (I.e. Tonraq). And yes, I agree that he himself believes that he is, in fact, the only one who can save the world, and keep the spirits happy. However, I also must say that he is very clever and and deceiving. I don’t like him, but he surely makes a great antagonist. :)

    • Ace

      The whole point of the United Forces is to keep peace. As the Commander-in-Chief of the united Forces, it is the President’s job to order the fleet to defend innocent people from invaders. What the Borth is doing is wrong and he is choosing to ignore it. There wouldn’t really be any uprising in Reoublic City because, unless they impeach him, he is In office and they should respect his decision if he makes the right one, which he has not as of yet. Just as the Northerners in Republic City could revolt, so could the Southerners so your pint is invalid. The President is wrong and he should help the South because they and their rights are under attack by the aggressors, the North.

      • jonas

        don’t forget that the president doesn’t have any clear information about the “invasion”. they don’t have internet or twitter :p
        Sending the United Forces might spark a global war. He’s awaiting further news. (also don’t forget that Unalaq is the chief of both tribes so it’s not an invasion in theory ;) )

        • lordoffantasy

          no it is an invasion all right. korra’s dad lead the southern tribe. and i highly doubt that they do not have clear information on what is going on down there. they know what is going on and are ignoring it………………. this isn’t the same scenario as, say, not getting involved in a middle eastern conflict. the united nations was created from the union of the three other nations. to allow one nation to harm itself is not them avoiding a foreign affair, it is them choosing not to act.

      • Johnny

        Disagree. The President see the North and South as one tribe, so this is an intra-tribal issue, not something for the Republic or the United Forces to deal with. Now, if the North attacked the United Forces, the Fire Nation, or the Earth Kingdom, then it becomes a broader issue. The interesting question is what happens if the Fire Nation intervenes to help one side or the other. I’m sure that’s why the writers are taking the story in that direction. Then Unalaq can go the President and actually request help against the Fire Lord…

    • lordoffantasy

      unfortunately the president’s reasoning is bullshit. this isn’t the same as our world. the united nations is the child of all three nations, and right now it is refusing to help one of its parents. this is not a foreign affair, the south and repbulic city and directly linked to one another as it is for the fire nation and earth kingdom. it would be one thing if the north was threatening the south, but this is not a threat. they have landed teh ships and taken over.
      that is the difference. the nations are not divided anymore, this is not a foreign affair.

  • Kyle Edgecomb

    Why isnt Katara doing something? I know shes old but i cant help thinking ahe can still be a good fighter, its like she is staying out of the whole thing

    Also since this episode takes place before Beginnings, is there a chance in the end will lead into the episode?

  • Eliminator

    Some thoughts:
    - Korra of course survived the attack (or it would be pointless to continue the story), she might be in the spirit world meeting past avatars…
    - I’m excited about Varricks and Bolins friendship – and about the movie they are shooting.
    - The President must choose a “side” – Helping Korra or turning against her. I want to see Korra visiting Zuko!
    - Jinora and Tenzin might share a subplot.

    Anyway, I just discovered this site and I love it. Keep up the good work, Keval and Co.
    Maybe you should add something like a prediction forum. would be nice to discuss the future (and past) episodes of Legend of Korra.

    • crystalline

      I agree. A prediction forum would be awesome and make this site that much better!

  • gaia

    yeah. time for mako to make a move. the other team avatar being stupid lately letting themself being used by Varrick.

  • Jason

    Varrick?

  • Coleman

    Im calling it, Varrick paid the Triad to bomb the building so he can make money off of the conflict. He is too likeable to not be an evil genius.

  • big fan

    I m a big fan of this series . I just want it to never end .thereso many fans I have met till now . AWSOME :-) LOVE IY

  • Sibis

    I’m going with Varrick on this one.

    He did suggest Korra get around the President.

    So far the show has already hinted that he will use his money for underhanded and to get around the law.

    He already has his own reasons for getting Unalaq out of the SWT.

    Finally, Varrick was making a anti-NWT propaganda film.

    • Sergio

      But why!??? Just because of money?? I also thinks Varrick is not good at all, but I wonder about his real plans…It’s so suspicious…

      • Sibis

        The NWT blockade hurts his business. He also shown to have the mentality to go around the law when needed.

        • crystalline

          Wow good point. It never really occurred to me that Varrick could be an antagonist but now that I think about it he really could be. That would be a good surprise.

          • Sergio

            I know! but the question here is WHY? I’d say it’s not because of money or something related with his shipping empire. There has to be something else…I feel it!

      • lordoffantasy

        …….money i would say. i do not think varrick is evil persay, jsut amoral.

    • Kakashi

      This may sound a bit stupid, but maybe Varrick paid the triads to bombed the Southern water tribe cultural center to make it seem the North did it.

      • Sibis

        It could be. Now here is the real stinger. If Varrick is exposed, where does that leave Bolin and Asami who are heavily tied in with this guy? Some fans might not like a good character like Varrick being fed to Mako.

  • Sergio

    Remember this Varrick’s bio?: “It is rumored that Varrick is willing to deal with underworld characters and triads if he believes that the company’s involvement in their affairs will turn a profit.”
    Could he be the real antagonist of the series? But why? I mean, he’s rich enough! he was rich without war! he could simply have denied help to Asami if he wanted to see Future Industries ruined, and he didn’t have to bomb the Southern Water Tribe cultural center to convince Korra to talk with Iroh and/or Asami to sell mecha-tanks to the south…OMG! I’m so excited!! I’m really looking forward to see what is going to happen in ep. 6!!!

    • Mfeliz

      Oo interesting….I hadn’t seen that Bio (I am late and caring up ) Definitely makes him more interesting. if he is the antagonist or at least one of them, maybe he’s helping Asami and doing all those things to cover his tracks /look good? This way he knows what his opposition is doing and can quietly control and get rid of them.

    • Ako Si David

      I heard somewhere Ju Lee, may be the main antagonist of book 2

      • disqus_e0XtJDMPfo

        she secretly has her own side company and is mad at her boss because of the way he treats her. So she made her own company and is building it by using her inside info and wars. “?”

  • Muggle

    I don’t know. Maybe I’m just basing this theory off my real-world political bias, but I can’t see Raiko being an antagonist just for not sending troops to help the Southern Water Tribe. I can think of a few good reasons why he would do that, the first being that Republic City isn’t a shiny happy paradise of social and political stability. They’re 6 months into trying out a new type of government after 70 years of the old, very flawed one. Gangs and terrorists are still a problem. On top of that, there’s more to the United Republic of Nations than just Republic City (right?) that has to be taken care of, and a government that’s been focused so much on one city has likely been ignoring the problems in the rest of the country. Raiko may be an isolationist who would prefer to make sure everything is stable at home before diving into a conflict between the Water Tribes. Yes, that conflict is leading to social unrest in Republic City, but Republic City isn’t just Water Tribes, it’s the Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation as well.

    • lordoffantasy

      strong point, but this is not the same as a foreign affair. they ahve the information, the intent is obvious, and the avatar herself asks for aid…………. i do not htink he is evil, but an antagonist easily because he is becoming an obstacle with his apathy of the situation. if anythign his refusal to act is the same as a son not stopping their paretn from hurting themselves. teh united nations were born from the other nations, and now one is at war with itself. there is obviously no negotiation in this situation, as the northerners have dug in and made it clear they will not listen.

      …….i so want to see mako pulverized. i like the guy but dear fucking god, he needs a good shot of perspective here. it is true that yes, korra is being impuslive, but it is also true that the south is going to be wiped out if no aid is sent. basically he chose his ‘duty’ over the lives of hundreds of people.

  • daniel yefru

    maybe the gang had something to do with asami’s mother

    • PurplePlatypusBear

      You mean the Gaang, or the triads? Or the current Team Avatar? I don’t really think it was any, because they were just firebenders that killed asami’s mother. I really don’t think that there is a deeper plot.

      • Muggle

        He meant the Triads, not the Gaang.

        • PurplePlatypusBear

          That’s what I figured.

      • daniel yefru

        whoops yea thanks for the correction

      • daniel yefru

        well in the teaser there was a scene where asami was emotional that could be this episode

        • PurplePlatypusBear

          Hm, I guess that’s a possibility. But if we were going to find out who killed Asami’s mother, I think it would be a bigger deal, like a character that we know. If it was just some random triad goon, it wouldn’t be that big of a shock, since it was kind of implied in the first place. Unless there was a filler episode where they went to look for the killer like in ‘The Southern Raiders’.

          • daniel yefru

            well yes there right about that since this episode wont be a filler for sure but if its not this epiosde it wont be any other episode in book 2 since the epiosde’s titles obivously show it has nothing to do with this

    • MG

      The Agni Kai triad killed Mrs. Sato when Asami was 6. It’s mentioned in “The Aftermath”. Perhaps “The Sting” is when it goes full circle.

  • chewgum

    Is book 3 finished? If bryke wanted released it, it would be finish?

  • chewgum

    It’s hot in southern water tribe if there’s Bolin…

    • Luther

      DAYUM…

      • niznet

        NNNUCKTUK!

  • daniel yefru

    i noticed in peace keepers whoever is the leader of repulic city commands the untied forces but in book 1 when tenzin was the remaining leader he sent a ‘request’ to the untited forces and it was iroh’s decision what the army did

    • PurplePlatypusBear

      Well there was no president in Book 1, and Tenzin was a councilman, the main position of power in Republic City.

      • daniel yefru

        but how can the UF go from being controlled by iroh to being controllled by the president?

  • BUM-I

    I love Varrick – he is hilarious! Great addition to Team Avatar!!! And I know a lot of people were complaining how Bolin didn’t seem to have a purpose – I think that was what the writers had intended!! He is trying to find that purpose. Great job LOK producers!

    • Amber

      Bolin is new Sokka.

  • GoLEAFSGo

    Korra is a jerk and is getting a little annoying. And why in the world is Lin mean to Korra? I thought they were in good terms?

    • Joe

      I think Lin is just like that

  • Freedom Fighter

    wasnt the fire lord a chick now, i renember seeing a girl representing the fire nation in book 1

    • MG

      That’s the representative of the Fire Nation in the United Republic, and one of the leaders.

      The Fire Lord is the leader of the Fire Nation. You’re right to say it’s a she, since Zuko abdicated in favour of his daughter.

      • Freedom Fighter

        i am so lost right now, who is Zukos daughter and wife? im guessing that Search Part 3 coming out next month will clear this up.

        • MG

          Zuko’s daughter (she’s named Honora by the fandom) is yet to be revealed, but she took over the Fire Nation 3 years before the main plot after Zuko abdicated. She may have some plot relevance since Korra apparently reached the Fire Nation.

          His wife, on the other hand, was rumored to be Mai, but it’s unconfirmed. Mai broke up with Zuko in The Promise Part 2, though Rebound seem to suggest that she is still thinking of her boyfriend.

  • Aang35426

    I can’t wait for this episode! That Makorra stuff is out of the way for a while and I hope Korra gets to face the Dark spirit that is voiced by Grey DeLisle.

  • Kakashi

    my thought is that is not evil or an antagonist. i bet he is just trying to prevent the war spreading into Republic city, cause if he helps the south the north may attack the united republic

    • Kakashi

      im talking about the president

  • Kailee

    Yupp… Mako ripped off that blood sucking leech. Hahaha

  • Holly

    I was getting so excited when general iroh said ” my mother and my grandfather were good friends with the avatar” I was like ‘ oh my god, are we gonna see them?’ And then she never went! Stupid spirit * grumble grumble*

  • chewgum

    Keep smiling…:’)

  • Anonymous Avatar Fan

    I definitely think there will be some Korra/Mako trouble… This should be fun!

    Someone on Tumblr actually mentioned that they thought Varrick was behind the bombing. I like Varrick, but before book 2 aired, I thought he looked a little shady, especially since his Avatar wiki trivia said that it’s rumored in the Avatar world that Varrick has no qualms about working with criminals should it turn in a profit. I think he payed the Agni Kais to bomb the Peace Center to instigate a war between both Water Tribes. Honestly, I can see that happening. Varrick’s just looking to make money. He can’t ship with the northerners occupying the South and he wants them out. Also, all the profit from propaganda and Asami’s mecha tanks? Yeaaaah, Varrick’s looking more suspicious to me than President Raiko.

    I believe that whoever is leading this conspiracy is using the northern backstabbing chief uncle. I believe it is the person who is trying to make the look like the antagonist, which is the rich dude making the movies. I think he bought those fire-benders to blow up the republic so everyone will blame the northern water tribe and the evil chief. But I’m assuming a lot. What do you guys think?
