Legend of Korra Book 2: Episode 11 ‘Night of a Thousand Stars’ Prediction

This Friday, Nickelodeon will be hosting an hour long special that premieres episodes 11 & 12 which are titled ‘Night of a Thousand Stars’ and “Harmonic Convergence’, respectively. Today we will be taking a look at possible predictions for episode 11 ‘Night of a Thousand Stars’. Thanks to the descriptions provided by Zap2it we know that this episode will mostly be about the Republic City subplot. Because the subplot isn’t strong enough to hold on its own, I’m sure the writers will tie it into the main plot at some point in time.

The first thing I will address is Bolin’s situation in this episode; Bolin supposedly saves president Raiko when he is mysteriously attacked. Is it just me or does something sound fishy? I don’t doubt that Bolin will save president Raiko, but I think the attack on him might have been organized by Varrick. Bolin will most likely be oblivious to this fact and think he just saved the president’s life. For Varrick, Bolin saving the President would help his cause greatly. Being saved by, “Nuktuk,” the hero of the south, would prompt President Raiko to send troops to help fuel the fire that Varrick wants to keep burning.

So how does all of this tie into the plot? In “Civil Wars – Part 1,” Unalaq says, “If the Water Tribes are at war, the other nations would take sides, and the dark spirits would thrive off of this negative energy; it would be catastrophic.” From this, you can surmise that once the United Forces get involved and start an all-out war with the Northern Water Tribe, it will only give Vaatu more power.

Now onto Asami and Mako’s story line for this episode.

BolinAsami will be trying to free Mako from prison by finding out who framed him. She will probably run into many obstacles during her quest, but in the end Asami will figure everything out and release Mako from prison. Asami could even get some help from Lin Beifong and the police force.

We’ve all wondered why Lin has been such a pain this season: always getting in the way of Mako’s investigation, and creating countless obstacles for him. But have you ever stopped to think that maybe Mako is the one getting in the way? It’s possible that Lin and her detectives knew about Varrick all along, but they didn’t have enough evidence to make an arrest.

Remember how president Raiko was suspicious of Varricks plans in episode 5, “Peacekeepers?” Maybe he knew about Varrick as well?

With the help of Asami, Lin may finally get the evidence she needs. Even though Asami would be outing Varrick as an evil mastermind in the process of freeing Mako, this probably won’t be the last we see of him.

TonraqAside from the Republic City subplot, we will probably see some development in the Southern Water Tribe plot involving Tonraq. He has been absent from many episodes, so what better time to bring him back than now? Tonraq may even be the person who makes Desna and Eska finally realize their father’s true colors.

Even though it did not occur last episode, I’m sure it will happen in either one of the episodes shown this week. If not, I will be really surprised.

As for the events that transpired in last week’s episode between Tenzin and Korra, they’ll probably just be shown making their way to the northern Air Temple/ Water Tribe in order to close the portals and save Jinora. There could also be some major tension between Korra and Tenzin, being that he entrusted Korra with Jinora’s safety.

What are your thoughts on ‘Night of a Thousand Stars’? My prediction for ‘Harmonic Convergence’ will be published tomorrow before the LIVE Stream – that’s when things will get interesting.

  • Kakashi

    Hey Josh, just want to say good prediction. Cant wait for tomorrow.

    • Josh

      Thanks, and I can’t wait either!

      • Kailee

        Wait where is your prediction?

        • Kailee

          Oh just kidding. Haha. I thought that I saw the name Keval at the top. Sorry.

          Nice prediction btw! :D

      • Trent

        I thought you said that you weren’t an author on this blog anymore?

        By the way…… Great prediction! :)

  • smile

    What are you predictions on the whole masami thing, cause I feel like it’ll probably have a play in the episode and get in the way of the plot….

    • Josh

      If anything I think the whole masami thing will help drive the plot for this particular episode. Since Asami cares deeply for Mako she will go to great lengths to make sure that he is freed from his imprisonment. For this episode I don’t think it will be that bad, but it all depends what the whole masami dynamic is in episode 12, “Harmonic Convergence.”

      • Makorraaa<3

        Although I’m not a big fan of Asami, I will actually feel bad for her if she goes to great lengths in order to free Mako and then Mako tells her that he still loves Korra. I’m not saying that this will fo surez happen but it’ll be kinda sad if it does.

        • crystalline

          That would be a little sad, but I have a strong feeling Asami or maybe even Korra will meet some other young men as good as Mako later in the series and everything will be fair and work itself out. Hey, she may even end up with Bolin too, although immature, he’s really caring and he’s still an option.

  • Katherine M.

    Romance doesn’t necessarily get in the way of the plot. It works to some extent to develop character dynamics. Nice prediction. I also think that attack on Raiko was probably planned by Varrick. It just seems like the perfect opportunity to force the UR in the war and promote Nuktuk. KorraSpirit posted a storyboard a few days ago. Lin was yelling at Gang and Lu to “stop stuffing your [their] mustaches and get back to your posts.” It could be from Night of a Thousand Stars. They are probably there for security while Raiko makes what I assume is a public appearance. With Raiko breathing down Lin’s neck, she wouldn’t want those idiots to screw up.

  • Makorraaa<3

    I have faith in Bolin! I REALLY hope that his character starts developing from now on! :D And for the Mako and Asami stuff…..im excited to see it end. This Nuktuk and Masami stuff has been going on for to long so I hope it ends in N.O.T.S.

    And lets hope that Korra meets up with the rest of Team Avatar either in N.O.T.S or HC.

  • Giovanne Calamba Revilla

    i wish they could get Jinora in which of these episodes… i really am concerned about her..

    • Makorraaa<3

      Ikr! I’m scared for Jinora. I have a bad feeling that something bad is going to happen to her.

  • ajames123

    Is it me, or Bolin and Asami are too Cute together?

    • Makorraaa<3

      Eh…..there okay. I feel like Bolin is to immature for Asami. But that’s just my opinion.

  • Name.

    Darn been waiting for the episode 12 prediction for a theory on how Korra reunites with the gang :) Also, an explanation on a comment you made about a foreshadowing from the beginning of the season for the inclusion of Mako’s subplot (you said it would be in your “episode 11 and 12 prediction”) .

    • Josh

      It’s in this prediction, it’s the third paragraph.

      • Name.

        ok.

      • Name.

        For some reason when I read that paragraph I thought it referred to Bolin’s subplot. I think its because you talked about Bolin’s part in the episode, then explained how it tied into the grand scheme. Afterwards you made an introduction for Mako and Asami’s role. (“Now onto Asami and Mako’s story line for this episode). So I dissociated that from Mako and Asami. On the whole I now better understand how the mako/asami/ Bolin subplots were foreshadowed to be included in the main plot. So thanks for your explanation.

  • Josh

    A new clip for the one hour special has just been released by nick! Here it is http://www.nick.com/videos/clip/digital-original-legend-of-korra-bts-creators-spots.html

    • Kailee

      Omg!! Team Avatar is back!!! And Bolin ripping off his sleeves was to funny!! Now I’m even more excited for tomorrow!! :D

    • Josh

      Here is a picture of Korra practicing her airbending. Notice the background is the same as the place that Tenzin is telling Korra that she’ll need all her avatar power to stop Unalaq.

      • LOKlover

        Can’t wait to see Korra airbending! I mean she used it a couple of times but never in an intense training like this pic. Go Korra!

        • crystalline

          Yea. I am excited to see some real epic bending. I feel like, in comparison to bending battle we have seen in ATLA, the bending in this series has not been nearly as thrilling and effective. I am really hoping to see some truly skilled bending abilities from both the good guys and the enemy. That would be a fight worth watching!

          • Trent

            I wanna see someone challenge Korra to an Agni Kai.

          • crystalline

            Haha. That would be one huge fight. I know Korra would not hold back.

      • Trent

        Damn… Korra’s got muscles!!

        • LOKlover

          Well she is the avatar! Haha

          • Trent

            Haha true. I really want to see Korra do that thing that Aang did….. you know when he was in the avatar state with all the four elements floating around him. That would be epic!

          • crystalline

            Yea me too. Wan also did something similar to what Aang did in Beginnings. Seeing Korra do that would be awesome!

          • Josh

            Wait are there two Trent’s.

            Edit: Never mind, for some reason your name popped up as Trent lol.

          • crystalline

            No haha. I think you’re seeing the same thing that has been happening to me. Sometimes for some reason lots of people will have the same username. Like there will be 2 or 3 LOKlovers or Kailees. It will look like they are talking to themselves. I don’t know why it does that but its very weird. But this is crystalline.

          • LOKlover

            Wait that happens to you too? Cuz your username on your comment looks like your replying to yourself. This is weird.

          • crystalline

            Yup! haha. Strange stuff.

          • Josh

            Lol. I was like, OK this is really weird. I hate to be a hypocrite, but it’s just peculiar when people talk to themselves. Haha!

        • Josh

          I know right! All the characters in Lok seem to be very strong. I remember in the first episode when Korra picked up Tenzin and all of his children at once. And in the new clip released by Nick Bolin does the same thing! I’m just like; That should not be possible! Then again it is a tv show.

          • LOKlover

            Lol.

          • Trent

            Haha yea. So how do you think Kya and Bumi will be involved in the main plot?

          • crystalline

            They will probably help fight spirits with their bending, or Bumi would use his regular fighting skills. They will probably just serve as regular sidekicks.

          • Trent

            Yea… I really want to see Kya fight instead of seeing her just use her waterbending to fall down a waterfall.

          • Josh

            Haha!

          • Josh

            The answers are in my episode 12 prediction which will be posted tomorrow, or today depending on where you live.

          • Trent

            I live in California…. so does that mean you’ll post it today or tomorrow?

          • Josh

            It will be posted tomorrow. I believe there is a 3 hour time difference between the east coast and west coast. So right now it should be about 10:13 in California.

          • ajames123

            Bolin is a powerful earth bender, Pro bending player, on the other hand,
            Korra is the avatar, trained for fighting most of her life, also a powerful probending player.

            Its no wonder these guys lift everyone.

      • ezilopi

        I don’t like the way Korra airbends. Airbending is supposed to have smooth, swift,swirling movements. Here, Korra’s just punching the air in front of her, as if she’s firebending, and air comes out.

        • Josh

          That’s exactly why she should have stayed with Tenzin. If she had, instead of doing, “Korra style airbending,” she would be doing actual airbending.

    • boinkoi

      Seems that Lin in now back on Team Avatar’s side as well. Did anyone see her smile at the end? Wonder what happened to Varrick. And what’s Bolin’s purple jacket made of?

      • Josh

        Yeah, I caught the smile at the end too. Maybe it means that Lin did actually know about Varrick, and was on Team Avatars side this whole time. As for Bolin’s jacket, it kind of looks like that spirit goo that leaped onto Korra in, “A New Spiritual Age,” lol. I don’t know how Bolin would have gotten is hands on that, but he is a celebrity now, and they tend to have all the connections.

      • crystalline

        I didn’t Lin anywhere in the clip, where was she?

        • Josh

          You can see her when Team Avatar is reunited inside the prison.

          • crystalline

            Oh thanks!

    • LOKlover

      Josh, why are you so smart?!?! I mean your theories are like spot on all the time! Haha

      • Josh

        Haha, thanks for the flattery.

    • Sean Pirie

      i want to be able to watch this from New Zealand, is there another link, or can i be told how i can please, thanks

  • Sibis

    If Desna got hurt badly, that give the best healer in the world a chance to make an appearance. Seeing as how Katara has been absent for a while.

  • crystalline

    Omg I just watched the latest clip and wow! Im not sure how thrilled I am about Night of a Thousand stars being centered around Bolin, but I am very happy and excited to see Korra and Team Avatar finally reunited and back in action. I now super curious to see how Korra comes back into the picture and how they react to her return, especially Mako and Asami. Super excited now and cant wait for the predictions post for harmonic convergence. I think your predictions for NIght of a Thousand Stars are spot on and very plausible.

    • Josh

      Thanks, I appreciate it!

  • Emerrias

    And i’m here still waiting for future Zuko to show up :/

    • Chuck Norris

      IRK?!!?!?

  • Sibis

    It’s really a shame that the only way Bolin gets to do his own thing is when Mako has to forcibly be taken out of the picture.

    He gets his 15 minutes to shine then once Mako returns, it’s back to the banana suit for Bolin singing “It’s Peanut Butter Jelly Time!!!”

  • Josh

    Although The newest clip released by Nick is only 46 seconds, it raises many questions and helped me formulate a lot of new theories.

    When I first saw the clip I new the boat that Team Avatar was riding on looked familiar. After some research I found that it bears a resemblance to Varrick’s Rocket Boat! They may not be exactly the same, but the design and color palette is very similar. Who says Varrick doesn’t have more than one? And nothing else would be able to get them to the Southern Water Tribe faster!

    Also when they show Bolin wearing his new purple coat, he is holding a Varri-cake. Could this mean that Varrick isn’t thrown in prison for his involvement in the bombings, or does it mean that he had nothing to do with them in the first place. Although it’s implied, Varrick hasn’t actually said that he was the one behind the bombings, and Asami’s company almost going bankrupt. It will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow.

    Another thing I noticed was that the creators said Team Avatar was going to the Southern water tribe. In the Book 2 Trailer Mako and Bolin are shown in front of the Northern portal. So does this mean that Team Avatar will split up once again? The only other thing that would explain why the spirit portal is yellow, is,”Harmonic Convergence.” Remember how both spirit portals turned yellow during, “Harmonic Convergence,” in the Wan hour special? This could mean that team avatar fails at their attempt to close the portals before then.

    The last thing I thought was interesting was the scene with Unalaq. Is it just me or does he seem to have an inhumanly possible ability to jump high. I mean, it looks like he’s about 20 ft off the ground! Maybe he has some new abilities that we don’t know about.

    Here are some pictures to go along with my theories.

    • crystalline

      Yea they definitely are not able to close the Spirit Portals in time. Also, it would be very interesting if Varrick really wasn’t behind the bombings or Asami’s company going bankrupt, but I honestly highly doubt he wont be. Mako has some pretty solid theories to support that Varrick is behind the problems. Also, in his character description it did say he would do some sneaky crazy things in order to get his company ahead, or something like that so I really do think he is probably behind it. Although, I don’t think that it is that big of a deal. He just wants money, not to destroy the world.

      • Josh

        The Asami thing isn’t really that big of a deal, but the bombings are. If he does turn out to be behind all of it, I will be really mad if he isn’t arrested. I would be delighted to have him in more of the show, but I don’t wan’t things to be unrealistic.

        • crystalline

          Yea he is an interesting character. I guess him being arrested would be kinda bad. I don’t know we will have to see. It would catch me completely off guard though if he was not behind this though. Thanks for the predictions I get so super excited to read them!

    • chewgum

      mako seems a princess in the screenshot!AHAHAHA

  • Guest

    Lin smiles!

  • Reiko

    Lin smiles! lol

    • zk

      Team Avatar all look so happy in this shot, Asami included. She must be feeling pretty at peace at the moment. I can’t wait to see how they all bond together again.

      And, Mako’s in his duds again. I wonder if Bolin brought him his scarf and stuff when they went to break him out or if Mako had already been home and came to the jail again to help incarcerate Varrick.

      (Thanks for the great prediction post, Josh!)

    • LOKlover

      So do you think that the Masami stuff will live on or die in the next episode?

  • Reiko

    No Dark Spirit is a match for Bumi’s Boot

      • LOKlover

        So does that mean that it’ll premiere tonight? Sorry if I keep asking you all these questions…… I’m just super excited because the last two are the episodes that I’m looking forward to the most.

        • m

          The post itself has over 10,000 notes, but I’m sure a lot of those are likes (I really hope Nick has an app or something that counts those, otherwise it sucks to be the person that has count all those reblogs) but the post itself now has over 12,000 in just 3 hours, so I’m sure it’ll hit the 10,000 reblog by then (since there’s probably a lot of kids in school who haven’t seen the post yet)

  • chewgum

    JANET VARNEY AND BIGH NEWS!!!!!!
    IF YOU REBLOG KORRANATION TUMBLR PAGE THEY WILL PUT ON NICK.COM ALL 4 EPISODES OF BOOK 2 TONIGHT. BUT THIS IS UNTIL MIDNIGHT. WE HAVE TO BE QUICK. WATCH THE VIDEO AND READ IN THE DESCPRIPTION.

And unless they’re really about to make someone count all the reblogs (it will take over 12 hours to do that alone), we get the finale tonight! It’s gonna air on nick.com according to KorraSpiritat Midnight EST!

  • Lance
  • Lance

    lol lots of peeps beat me to it! xD

  • KorraFan

    I’m psyched for this! :D Can’t wait to find out what happens with Bolin, Mako, Asami, and Varrick. I hope Korra at least has some role in this episode, but I think it will mainly be about the Republic City and serve to close this plot and rejoin Bolin, Mako, and Asami with Varrick. 4 more minutes! :D
