Tonight at 8:30 pm EST, Nickelodeon will premiere episode 12 ‘Harmonic Convergence’ as the second half of their 1 hour Legend of Korra event. The description of the episode is as followed, “With the help of her closest friends, Korra must close both spirit portals before Harmonic Convergence occurs and rescue Jinora’s spirit from captivity with Unalaq and Vaatu. Meanwhile, Tenzin must learn how to overcome his own innermost demons as the only airbender born to the previous Avatar.” In the description it says that Korra will be accompanied by her closest friends when trying to close both spirit portals who are presumably Mako, Bolin and Asami.
When Korra and Tenzin’s make their way to the Northern spirit portal, they could make a quick stop in Republic City to get some extra man power. With all her friends by her side, Korra will make her way to the Northern spirit portal to enter the spirit world, close the portals, and save Jinora.
Unalaq won’t be oblivious to the fact that Korra is alive, and that she will do anything in her power to close the spirit portals. The being said, Unalaq will most likely vamp up his security at both portals. He may use spirits as security, or possibly his children, Eska and Desna. He may even use both! If the twins have not made their change by the end of episode 11, I have faith that it will happen in episode 12.
Once the, “Krew,” arrives at the Northern portal, they will be confronted by Unalaq’s security force. What gives me reason to believe that this security force will be Eska and Desna is the fact that during the SDCC Book 2 trailer, ice is seen flying towards an unknown person. It could be Eska and Desna, or it could be Korra. But the ice is seen flying in the same place that Bolin and Mako are fighting at. So that could mean that the ice is being shot by their enemy who could be Eska and Desna.
Instead of Mako and Bolin defeating the bending duo, they could possibly end the fight by reasoning with them. Eska would be delighted to hear anything her “dear” Bolin has to say. Also, given the events of episode 9, I’m sure they would agree with Bolin when he tells them that their father is an evil jerk. After Mako and Bolin are finished with the twins, they will go through the spirit portal to aid Korra in her mission to close the portals.
Korra, being the amazing fighter that she is, will put up a good fight against Unalaq and his spirit friends. In the end, I don’t think Korra will be strong enough to get passed Unalaq and close the portals.
This will cause Harmonic Convergence to begin.
The battle during the “Harmonic Convergence” probably won’t be shown until next week’s Finale. Even though episode 12 is titled “Harmonic Convergence,” it may only showcase the events leading up to it; just as Civil Wars Part 1 and Part 2 did.
In the description for episode 12 it says that Tenzin will finally face his demons. The demons are most likely Tenzin’s inability to enter the spirit world through meditation. Tenzin probably won’t enter the spirit world through meditation being that he doesn’t have the spiritual connection. He’ll probably end up entering the Spirit World through the portal so he has the ability to bend.
In the trailer, we see a scene depicting Tenzin, Bumi and Kya in the Spirit World. During their journey through the spirit world, Tenzin and his siblings may get a visit from their father, Avatar Aang. That would explain their shocked facial expressions in a screenshot released by Bryan Konietzko.
Other than Tenzin and his siblings and Korra and her friends, we will probably see some interaction between Unalaq and Jinora. Unalaq did say that if Jinora came with him she could do some firsthand research. Maybe this will be when Jinora finds out a way to defeat Vaatu once and for all.
By the end of the episode, I expect Korra to be reunited with her friends, Eska and Desna to have made their long awaited change to, “good guys,” Tenzin to enter the spirit world, and, “Harmonic Convergence,” to commence.
