From Tumblr user rockets-and-raccoons:
The Kataang kids vs the Red Lotus fight scene just hits too hard. Tenzin has a whole nation resting on his shoulders, and he’s desperately attempting to protect these new, barely trained airbenders, his family, and Korra all at the same time. You’ve got Bumi and Kya helping him — and while Kya is clearly a bada**you can tell by watching her fight scenes that unlike her mum she’s much more of a healer than a fighter. She gives as good as she’s got, but she’s clearly not all that used to using her bending in a fight (although she is definitely skilled given how close she came to capturing Zaheer a few episodes prior). Bumi, while a retired military man is 1. Retired, and 2. A beginner airbender. The fact that he’s up against pros in their fields with zero weaponry and only beginner-level airbending moves, like holy cow.
We’ve seen repeatedly throughout the series that all Bumi wants is to connect truly to his airbending heritage. And now that he’s getting that, Zaheer and the Red Lotus are trying to take that away; and he doesn’t yet have the skill or training to properly defend it — and both he and Kya are willing to die to protect the Air Nation, and I just feel so many emotions right now.
I especially love the fact that the show consistently — yet often subtly — reminds you that Bumi is the big brother. Even in the face of death, with Kya telling him to just let go, he’s trying not just to protect his new people but his little sister.
And I love this family so much
