Welcome to the last LIVE Stream of the season, and quite possibly the last you’ll ever see The Legend of Korra on television. Now that Nickelodeon is convinced that the series will do better online, I expect the series to remain online – even into Book 4. On the bright side, we will be getting one episode a week until the season finale on August 22nd. Regardless the situation, we still have The Legend of Korra so I’m relatively happy.
Tonight, at 8/7c, Nickelodeon will premiere episode 8 “The Terror Within”. The episode was screened at Comic-Con earlier today, and has received good reviews thus far. Expect a whole lot of action, scenes contained the Red Lotus and a plot twist you probably didn’t see coming.
Enjoy “The Terror Within” and let me know if you have any technical issues with the LIVE Stream. Talk to you later.

Today’s the day – The Legend of Korra will be taking over San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) at 2:15 pm EST (11:15 pm PST). The hour-long panel will feature co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartinto, who will be joined by voice actors Janet Varney (Korra), David Faustino (Mako), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami), Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong) and John Michael Higgins (Varrick). PJ Byrne (Bolin) will not be in attendance as he’s shooting an HBO pilot today.
I’m in touch with a reader who is currently at the ‘Korra’ panel waiting for it to begin. She will text me news, pictures and possibly videos of what unfolds at today’s event. I will take whatever I receive and post it on this LIVE blog. If everything goes as according to plan, you’ll receive updates from the panel just seconds after they are announced live.
The format of the LIVE blog is simple: when I post news, it will automatically appear in the feed below. No need to refresh the page 500 times like last year. Enjoy the panel, and feel free to react to the news with raw emotion in the comments below.

Tomorrow at 2:15 pm EST (11:15 am PST), Korra is taking over San Diego Comic-Con with an official Book 3 panel. The hour-long panel will feature co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartinto, who will be joined by voice actors Janet Varney (Korra), David Faustino (Mako), Seychelle Gabriel (Asami), Mindy Sterling (Lin Beifong) and John Michael Higgins (Varrick). PJ Byrne (Bolin) will not be in attendance as he’s shooting an HBO pilot that day.
Update: Read the details on the Book 3 Comic-Con Panel here
Korra Nation has prompted fans to submit questions for the panelist via Tumblr, so expect tomorrow’s panel to feature some sort of Q&A segment. It’s been speculated for weeks now that the panel could feature an early screening of episode 8 “The Terror Within”. While this hasn’t been completely ruled out, it’s unlikely because it typically would’ve been announced by now. Update: Bryan has just confirmed that one episode of Book 3 will be screened – most likely “The Terror Within”.
The most anticipated segment from the panel is without-a-doubt the clarification we’ll receive regarding The Legend of Korra going “digital”. Yesterday afternoon, we learned that The Legend of Korra had been pulled from Nickelodeon’s schedule. Bryan Konietzko later informed us that the remainder of Book 3’s episodes would be released online through mediums such as Hulu, Amazon and Xbox.
Bryan assured us that we’d receive more details on this mess-of-a-situation at Comic-Con.
