I remember early on the creators had mentioned that Amon was linked to Zuko. On the Wiki's list of upcoming episodes "Skeletons in the Closet" seems this link is mentioned again.

Haven't seen latest episode. That's going to be an interesting link.
No clue how that fits into the equation unless it was Zuko's family that caused his burns and issues. Zuko obviously had a son which we haven't seen anything of until now. This son (or daughter) is probably the current fire lord. (if Zuko is even dead)

Finally saw the latest episode and good lord. That is the most broken mutation of bending ever. To control literally groups of people at will.
Now I REALLY have no clue what the hell Amon is.
No clue.... ... At all.... ..... Stumped......
Not related to Yakon most likely, dealt with Tarlok so there's no connection there at all.
Could possibly be another son. But no clue.
Could be an energy bender if it relates to him being able to affect his own body.
Some people say he's a spirit or something like Koh the face stealer from the spirit world but that's a stretch.
A spirit wouldn't be in the human world. Unless it's something like possession and then it just gets convoluted.
Some say it was just pure willpower how he could move but that makes zero sense at all. That's just pure 'dumb anime' logic.

^ The above.
It's mirroring actual society and advances in tech but based in a world where people have abilities. Would be quite the tech boom once the world is globalized in their world.
I don't think he's anything close to a cyborg or with prosthetics. Fans would rage at the ridiculousness.
and yeah it's a random picture I drew one day bored in a hospital and it looked like Aang in his 20's so figured it looked neat for an avatar.... and .... the irony of the avatar as an avatar.

I guess he could be one of those unique benders Sokka was referring to.
We do know who Amon is though.
He is the solution!

In all honesty I can't imagine who Amon is in the slightest anymore. Every theory is out the window. He's from the spirit world is stupid and convoluted. He said the spirits spoke to him. It might DEAL WITH the spirit world in some form. Maybe.
Energy Bender is a slight possibility in that he can take away bending, and if Energy bending deals with controlling energy if he can control his own then it might override blood bending. Maybe even why he's so strong in general.
But beyond those 2 simple thoughts I have no clue.
And with the way things were left off the big hour finale is without a doubt revealing who Amon is now that Tarlok is clearly not a threat or villain anymore.

im guessing korra will lose her bending given the type of character she is it will probably do the most to build her character moving forward particularly in that whole lack of being able to air bending/spirituality thing.
as far as amon i dont have a clue who he is.
June 15th, 2012 #163
Korra won't lose her bending unless Amons method truly deals with the spirit world. In which Korra will then have to overcome her spiritual weakness. Travel to the spirit world and get it back.

I laughed when Tenzen sensed the electricity with his beard. Finally he's also kicking ass. Though he should have lost if they electrocuted those bolas at the beginning. Like he did every other time lol.
At least most of them are learning. The mechs didn't clean up because they knew what to expect. Was surprised at Mako's channeling the electricity when hooked.
Legend of Korra has one thing the other Avatar didn't. Intense drama every episode. The original avatar was about a journey, lots of misadventures that didn't have to do with much. Every episode of Korra has purpose. (Except maybe the starting pro bending league episode, but even that had a bit of purpose). Tons of action. I guess.... less kiddie.
That and damn..... Lin...... Noooooooooooooooooooo.....
At the very end I was like "Wait.... Zuko's pretty young"
But they used the same voice actor for his son. who is named well.
June 16th, 2012 #166
I was trying to hold back on some spoilers..................
I don't think that's his son ...most likely his grandson. Zuko had a daughter according to the Republic City thing.
These episodes are indeed very intense. I did feel this episode was kinda...well going a bit too fast in this sense....it was like whoa...slow down a bit. Kinda like watching a play in a sense where everyone is rushing to the next scene and you can still see the stage hands rushing over to put the next set together kind of way. Still I enjoyed it.
Tenzin is definitely the man in this episode. It's really nice to see what a fully realized adult Airbender is like. We only got bits and pieces in the previous series.
Meelo is the most disturbing character in the show.
Least they actually got to ride on Naga right this time XD
June 16th, 2012 #167
Going into a thread about a show spoilers are expected lol
People are going to talk about what they saw.
I love Meelo. He's hysterically weird. Funny thing is I know kids like that. They would be just like that if they had Airbending.
I think the finale is when we finally learn about Amons abilities since it showed Korra in the pose of getting her bending taken away. My guess it may trigger her avatar state for the first time. You know it's going to happen with her some time.
I thought the pacing fit in the sense that it was supposed to feel rushed. The equalists are attacking no one has time to react. People are being taken out left and right.
and yeah I wouldn't be surprised if it was the grandson.
He was a bit young.

Adds drama. If something bad can go wrong, it will. They keep it out of sight and mind then later in the plot. BAM.
June 18th, 2012 #170
Yeah well she was pretty much ready to burst at any moment XD
It would have been pretty funny if that real elderly woman midwife was ...named "Hope"

Lol I was on the edge of my seat with today's episode, haven't had that kind of thrill over a cartoon since the X-men animated series back in the mid-90's. I wonder what book two will be about, the original avatar was what 6 books total?

I don't think everything was fixed so quick. There are still some outstanding issues to be addressed.

Although I admit it's a bit strange to hear that voice out of Iron (lol even though his voice actor is an adult too!) I will say they were really good about the voice actor choices. Specially Tarlokk and Amon....now that the season was over, it's kinda like "yeah that worked really well". Guess some of my earlier predictions or guesses were right though parts really had me fooled for a bit - never thought it would develop to that.
Glad it wasn't something stupid as "Energy Bending" though.
Philosophically really makes you think about firebending and waterbending.
Firebending seems to get the blame and obvious reasons about being the most destructive of all the bending elements. Look how many times a Firebender was blamed for or was the cause of casualties.
Waterbending is seen more as a healing type bending. Yet now we really see how far waterbending can go to blood bending.
Seems that each element besides air also has some branch of advanced bending too it would be interesting if there's something to develop for Season 2.
Firebending - Lightning
Earthbending - Metal
Waterbending - Blood
What would Advanced Air Bending bring? (Not just "fartbending" lol)

I agree for Asami's part during that whole mess. She got stiffed as the whole thing went on and i guess their conversation during the last ep was probably meant to be taken as breakup.
Iroh II's voice threw me off a little, I couldn't place his age with it. Amon & Tarrloks's story and and end were the best parts to me. I knew that Korra's unbending-ness wouldn't last long, even though I wished it could've lead into the 2nd season but alas..
I'm also glad that it wasn't legit energy bending either and was getting tired of Flame-Shaming tbh lol. Instead of the romance, I would have liked to see more evidence of oppression instead of being told about it. Maybe that'll happen in the last part of The Promise comic since that's an inbetween for the series.
Maybe Advanced Air is the weather? I read/kinda remember that Aang wished he could make a hurricane somewhere.
