Just as I mentioned in my last post regarding the Book 3 offseason, Bryan Konietzko has taken to Tumblr to update us fans on the current status of Book 3. As stated numerous times, Book 3 will focus much more on Lin Beifong and her family. To demonstrate the importance of Lin in Book 3, Bryan uploaded a picture from Book 3 depicting Lin Beifong with sweat running down her face. I’ve already heard numerous jokes regarding the “sweat” this morning, and if you can’t find anything funny about it, disregard the joke.
The picture depicts a seemingly fearful Lin Beifong awaking from her sleep in middle of the night. This type of expression would typically only paint the face of one who’s jolted out of bed from a nightmare. Perhaps she’s having nightmares about the Spirit-inhabited Republic City? Or perhaps her nightmares have more to do with her mysterious past?
Since the first 4 episodes of the season have been animated, I assume this scene is from one of those four episodes.
