Asami was spot on in this conversation. As soon as the kiss is brought up Mako immediately tries to back peddle and find a way out. He wonders how she found out and becomes pissed off it was Bolin. Instead of apologizing, or even admitting it was true and grovelling for forgiveness, Mako gets annoyed. The dude is fucking work of art. How we are supposed to support him I will never know.
Asami rightly points out that he should not be trying to shift the moral blame of the convo onto his brother. He was the one who was kissing Korra and yet he won’t even admit it, let alone apologize. Mako was trying to deflect blame at this point and Asami stopped him right there. I thought this was the worst he could get in this episode, I was wrong.
The last scene confirmed everything I dislike about Mako. He is no longer being oblivious to leading these two girls on, he knows what is at stake and shows no qualms in putting his arm around Korra and leading her away in front of a disappointed Asami. The guy is a douche, plain and simple. It’s a shame that Korra isn’t like ‘what the fuck are you doing, aren’t you with Asami’, but she probably is just a bit distracted what with the bloody war. Mako on the other hand knows exactly what is going on now, and he’s made his choice. No apologies, no explanations, nothing. He wants Korra this week and he doesn’t even have the decency to break up with his girlfriend. Nice one, dude!
OP you’re awesome
#Look at your life #Look at your choices #don’t be a douche
I mostly agree with this 100%, but I still think it was ridiculous for Asami to nitpick about ANYONE being worried about the Avatar being kidnapped Equalists (which is what they thought at the time.)
Besides the fact that they’re all SUPPOSED to be friends now (“supposed to” being the key phrase here) everyone in the world should be worried about the Avatar losing their bending. .
…I feel like Mike and Bryan made her nitpick this ridiculous point JUST to try to give Mako some credibility in this argument when he rightly points that out. =/
Every single one of them should have been super worried, but especially Tenzin, the only one we’ve seen who seems to care for Korra in a really genuine, protective way. But even he didn’t move a muscle to check on or help Korra when they found her. Apparently all other characters have to be put on “hold” for Mako to be the ONLY ONE ALLOWED to care about Korra. It’s just… terrible. It’s so frustrating to see all the characterization just fly out the window like that.
ALLLLL OF THIS. Asami has SO MUCH potential, but aside from the badass fight scenes, she is just The Girlfriend. Aaaaargh.
