The biggest problem I’ve always had with Book 2 is the fact that it takes place 6 months after the events of Book 1. At the end of Book 1, the big picture of Amon and his tyranny were cleared up, but there were still a lot of loose ends in terms of the overall plot line.
The biggest loose end has to be whether or not the Equalist Regime ended completely or not. You can’t expect such a large rebellion to simply die out once their leader has been killed. But since Book 2 contains its own separate plot line, it’s doubtful that the regime will even be mentioned.
Thankfully for us, we have the creative minds of the fan base to help fill in the gaps that Mike and Bryan left for us. So what really did happen directly after Korra ended Amon’s wrath? Obviously, we all probably have our own theory, and we can probably tell it to as many people as we please. But the YouTube group known as The Republic Online has the unique ability to show it to us, and show it to us well.
The Republic Online has created a live-action YouTube show that essentially portrays their vision of what really happened after Amon and Tarrlock were killed (yes, they were killed). I don’t want to spoil anything because the shows are extremely well done and the special effects are surprisingly good, but I will say that they’re well worth watching.
So far they have two episodes uploaded, but they plan on doing several more in the future. Don’t forget to check them out on YouTube and you can watch their first episode right here:
Episode 2 is even better than the first in my opinion because the entire episode features a live action bending duel between the two characters. Check it out:
