    I'm struck by the irony of this all of a sudden

    there was a time when I would have argued that Sato was an idiot for investing in the fire ferrets at all, and they should have worked for it all themselves because bootstraps

    the entire point of sato's speech is that it's not enough to just be talented and hard-working, you also sometimes need luck and/or help from other people

    taken in context the story about the loan is anything but super pro-capitalism or whatever you wanna call it

    If it were just about intent to profit then the mysterious benefactor wouldn't have made a substantial loan to a kid that in all likelyhood would never be able to pay him back because his idea is a pipe-dream.

    Accepting that kind of risk is generous.

    I don't think Hiroshi is investing in the Fire Ferrets at all. I think he's just helping out his daughter's new boyfriend at her behest because he has more money than God and 30k yuans is probably pocket change.

    I am interested to see whether the Satos are running some ulterior motives, as Asami certainly needs to pick up a flaw or two, or a darker side, if she wants to be a truly compelling character. The rest of the group's not crazy enough for her to make it just by being the straight man.

    potentially.

    which, again, is why I said "I'm not sure how I feel about Sato" and not "Sato is a dick."

    Nobody in the Avatar universe has been as 1-dimensional as the Satos are at the moment. That's all I'm saying. We're used to dealing with more complex characters so two overly-friendly and helpful (and may I say they have impeccable timing as well) seem like they will probably be revealed to have more going-on.

    This episode was so good, you guys.

    The show is just so consistently awesome that It keeps feeling too short. It just speeds by in what feels like a few minutes. The pacing is flawless.

    ...okay. Okay. Going off in a new direction here, but this idea popped into my head a few hours after the show and now it won't go away.

    I can't stop thinking that Korra may have just pulled a remarkably epic feat of retroactive foreshadowing/symbolism that may, depending on how the season goes, wind up working on two levels. And I would be desperately curious to find out if Bryke did in fact actually plan this, because I would be really, really impressed if they have actually planned it out this deeply.

    What I find really hilarious about Korra borrowing the scarf is that Korra then used it to whiplash a 300-pound dude into a steam vent.
