Legend of Korra Book 2 – Episode 6 ‘The Sting’ Review

The Legend of Korra is back, but without Korra? Except for the last minute or so of the episode, Korra is fully absent. Whether you will enjoy such a bold move on the writer’s part is up to how invested you were in Korra’s side of the story. Personally, I think this week’s episode was handled fine without its lead character, letting the sub-plots take over for what is a mostly good outing for Korra, or should I say Mako?

Whereas, “Peacekeepers” focused equally on Korra and Mako, “The Sting” puts Mako in the central role and almost entirely excludes Korra. Fortunately, we are treated to an exciting, noire-style crime-thriller, as Mako and Asami, who is always fun to see involved, attempt to unveil the truth behind a conspiracy. Needless to say, problems unfold.

Having been denied the use of the police by Cheif Beifong, Mako decides to take matters into his own hands, enlisting the help of the Triple Threat Triads to support a sting operation. However, things don’t go according to plan when Mako discovers that the Triple Threat members are only stalling so that the rest of the triads can steal Asami’s whole inventory. The discovery leads to a boat chase and a possibly revived Mako-Asami romance story arc (What?). Hopefully, it will be more bearable to see their relationship pan out than in Book 1, as long as it doesn’t evolve into the two getting back together. We wouldn’t want another love-triangle, now would we?

Monday Morning Round Up: ‘Episode 6: The Sting’ Edition

While ‘The Sting’ was most definitely another good episode in the series, it was marred with several flaws that made the episode less enjoyable, in my opinion. Despite the slip up, ‘The Sting’ is still getting generally positive feedback around the fandom. Wyatt’s review of the episode will be posted tomorrow morning, but until then, here’s your Monday Morning Round Up (even though it’s not morning because I was late this week) of all things related to Korra from this past weekend:

Legend of Korra Book 2: Episode 6 ‘The Sting’ LIVE Stream

Tonight at 8:30 pm EST, Nickelodeon will be premiering Book 2’s 6th episode titled ‘The Sting’. The description of tonight’s episode is as followed: “When Triad activity threatens to put Future Industries out of business, Mako performs an investigation and uncovers a conspiracy.” We’ve known for about a week now that Mako would have a larger role in’ The Sting’, but it looks like Asami will get her fair share of screen time too thanks to the involvement of Future Industries.

In case you missed the post, Nickelodeon released a clip of tonight’s episode that shows a scene between Bolin and Varrick. I’m anxious see their friendship progress in tonight’s episode, and I can’t wait to see how “The Adventures of Nuktuk: Hero of the South” turns out. I’ll have my thoughts on tonight’s episode posted later tonight.

Until then, enjoy this discussion thread for tonight’s episode. The LIVE Stream is embedded below. Wait about 60 seconds and the stream will go live once all the advertisements disappear. Episode 6 will be shown at 8:30 pm EST.
