9 Unanswered Questions We Still Have About 'The Legend Of Korra'

Vote up the questions that make a fair point.

It's not uncommon for a story to end with a few loose ends left unresolved, and The Legend of Korra is no different in that regard. The series finished with its main narrative largely closed off in a definitive manner, but there still ended up being some lingering questions about the story and the wider world that went unaddressed. Here are a few of those we think should be answered at some point.

    What Happend To Suki?

    Another character from the original series whose fate was left unexplored is Suki, but unlike Sokka, Suki doesn't even get so much as a passing mention in The Legend of Korra. She might not have been as big a player as the rest of Team Avatar, but she was still a valued member and a popular character overall, so it comes off as a little bizarre that the sequel series wouldn't even so much as mention her.

    How Did Sokka Pass?

    Sokka is among the many characters of the original series to have passed by the time The Legend of Korra started, but the exact circumstances of his death are never given. There are a lot of theories behind it, but nothing is concrete, and while it's not incredibly important for the story, it would still be nice to know the definitive end of such an important character.

    Will The Avatar's Connection To Their Past Lives Be Restored?

    Another major change The Legend of Korra brought to the series was Korra losing her connection to her past lives in the fight against Unalaq and Vaatu. The series ended without the connection ever being restored, and while it was never stated that it could be restored, it was also never stated that it couldn't be. If it can be restored, is Korra going to be the one to do it, or will it be up to a future Avatar to make it happen? There's no way of knowing, but it's a question people want answered, either way.

    What Happened To Azula?

    A third character from the original series who got the short end of the stick is Azula who, just like Suki, is never so much as mentioned in The Legend of Korra. If you only watch the shows, then she's last seen in manic tears after Katara defeats her; if you read the comics, then she's last seen running off in Smoke and Shadow to come up with a new plan to mold Zuko into a tyrant, something we can assume she fails at; whatever the medium, Azula's final appearance doesn't give a clear indication of what will happen to her, and for whatever reason, the rest of the franchise doesn't seem concerned with addressing it, even if some people would feel differently.

    What’s The State Of The Fire Nation, Post-Hundred Year War?

    One of the best parts about The Legend of Korra was seeing how much the world had changed in the decades following the Hundred Year War and the new ways people both did and didn't get along, but the show fell flat in that regard with the Fire Nation. Despite all of the attention given to Republic City, the Water Tribes, and the Earth Kingdom, we never get to see or learn anything about present-day Fire Nation, its current status a complete and utter enigma. Considering how important the Fire Nation was for obvious reasons, it's a rather odd decision to have been made.

    How Has Air Nomad Culture Changed With Its Revival?

    A major change that The Legend of Korra brought to the series was how in Book 3, following the aftermath of Harmonic Convergence, people all over the world suddenly became airbenders, effectively reviving the race after they were exterminated for the foundation of the entire series. A large part of the book was devoted to building the foundations of the new Air Nation, but it never went further than setting up the foundations, and in Book 4, the current state of things is largely unaddressed. The main point was just to bring back the airbenders, but it doesn't change how the specifics of their revitalized culture aren't fully detailed.
