Can I just say something.
Did you notice how Korra didn’t stop, not even for a minute? She was attacking him non-stop, and even when Tarrlok was clearly down, she kept. Going. At him. He was hanging onto that cane to keep from falling (quite a distance, too), and what does Korra do? She doesn’t give a single fuck. She crushes the cane, the floor, every fucking thing that kept him safe. Tarrlok falls, and she jumps and breaks the floor AGAIN, as if once wasn’t enough to express how much she actually intends to hurt that guy.
Korra didn’t stop to give a “do you give up now?” speech, she didn’t even think about that. All she knew was that this guy had arrested her friends, her Team Avatar, and she was so fucking pissed.
People, if Tarrlok hadn’t stop her with his bloodbending, she would’ve burned his face.
Would she regret that later? Probably. But at that moment, rage was everything that she knew. She was possessed by this incredible anger, and Tarrlok would have been so, so screwed.
Korra’s angry side is quite horrifying.
