Ikki: You're finally here! Welcome to Air Temple Island! Your new home. Meelo: Yes, welcome to my domain! Bolin: Well, aren't you sweet, little monk child. [sitting on Naga] Meelo: Yip yip! Fly sky bison! Fly! Korra: Oh, I thought you were only bringing a few things. Mako: Trust me, it could have been worse. Korra: No problem, everyone here wants you guys to feel welcome. [to Asami] Meelo: You're pretty! Can I have some of your hair? [to Asami] Meelo: We shall meet again soon beautiful woman! Ikki: Asami, did you know Korra likes Mako? [Korra freaks out and Asami seems confused] Asami Sato: Uh, no. I wasn't completely aware of that. Korra: Ikki! I swear if you don't leave us alone, I'm gonna-Oh! Hey Tenzin. Come right in. Tenzin: Good day, ladies. Asami, welcome to the island. Asami Sato: Thank you for having me. [Looks at Korra] Tenzin: Beifong's replacement, Saikhan, is going to be inducted as the new Chief of Police later. I think we should both be there. Bolin: Get ready, Republic City. You are about to be patrolled by Team Avatar. Korra: All right. Let's ride! Bolin: Naga away! [Naga throws them all off] Korra: Alright, scratch that, any other ideas? Asami Sato: Hmm. I think I have the answer. [drive a car up to them] Asami Sato: You think this'll do? Mako: I like the new Team Avatar's style. Bolin: Chi blockers! Mako: That's them! Korra: Let's get 'em! Tarrlok: Avatar Korra, what do you think you are doing? Korra: Oh, hey Tarrlok. Nice of you to show up finally. Here, we captured the escaped convicts for you. Tarrlok: What you did was tear up the city and impede the real authorities in their pursuit of these criminals. Korra: Hmm, that's funny. I didn't see your little task force or the cops the whole time. If it wasn't for Team Avatar, they would've gotten away. Tarrlok: This is your last warning. Stay out of my way! Korra: Why is the power out? Asami Sato: Wait a second, these people aren't armed or dangerous. Korra: Sure doesn't look that way. Little Girl: Mommy, look! It's the Avatar! Little Girls Mother: Please, help us! You're our Avatar, too! Korra: Everyone, please stay calm. I'm gonna put a stop to this. Asami Sato: Hey! Let me go! Tarrlok: You're under arrest! Mako: What? You can't do that! Tarrlok: Actually, I can. She's a non-bender out past curfew and her father is a known Equalist conspirator. Mako: Let her go! Tarrlok: Arrest him and his brother! Korra: TARRLOK! [raises huge earth blocks] Tarrlok: Unless you want to join your friends in prison, I suggest you put those down and go back to the Air Temple. Mako: Korra, listen to him. It's not worth it. Bolin: We'll be alright. Tarrlok: So sad to see your little Team Avatar broken up. You had a good run. Korra: This isn't over, Tarrlok. Tarrlok: Oh, I believe it is. Saikhan: You'll have to take that up with Councilman Tarrlok. Tenzin: Oh, I plan to. At the council meeting, first thing in the morning. Korra: You're officially the worst Chief of Police. Ever! Tenzin: Calm down, Korra. I'll get this sorted out, we just need to be patient. But you really are the worst. Ever! [to Naga] Korra: Wait for me here, girl. Don't worry, I'll be alright. Korra: Still think I'm a half baked Avatar? [Throws him off the balcony and lands below] Korra: What are you gonna do now? You're all out of water, pal. Meelo: What's that fuzzy creature? Jinora: That is a Fire Ferret. An arboreal mammal common to the bamboo forest of the central Earth Kingdom. Ikki: He's cuteeeeeee! [starts chasing Pabu] Ikki: And now for the grand tour! The flying bison sleep in those caves down there. And that's the temple Grandpa Aang built. And that's the greenhouse where we grow the vegetables we eat. Bolin: I have a couple of questions. Is this an all vegetarian island? Is that where you train airbending? Do we have to wear Air Acolyte clothes? Do we each get our own sky bison? And final question, how many trees are on this island? Ikki: Yes. Yes. No. No. Ten thousand five hundred and fifty two. Tarrlok: Well, Avatar Korra. Long time, no see. Now that your little pro-bending distractions are over, I look forward to your return to my task force. Korra: Ha! Forget it! There's no way I'm rejoining your vanity project. Tarrlok: That is unfortunate to hear but I'm sure you'll come to your senses as you have in the past. Korra: Don't hold your breath, bub. You know, Tenzin's been right about you all along. You played me, you played Beifong and now you're playing the new Chief too. Well, I got news for you. You need me, but I don't need you. I'm the Avatar. Tarrlok: You're not, in fact, the Avatar. You are merely a half-baked Avatar in training, which reminds me, how is your airbending going? Made any significant progress with that? I didn't think so. If you will not be part of my task force, then you had best stay out of my way. Korra: I don't understand what's wrong with me. I've memorized nearly all of the practice forms, but I still can't produce a single measly puff of air! I'm a failure. Tenzin: No, you're not. You just need to work through this airbending block. Korra: Amazing advice. I'll get right on that. Tenzin: I wasn't finished yet. You see, Aang not only had his bending teachers, but also his past lives to call upon for guidance. Have you ever made contact with your past lives? Korra: No, of course I haven't. Didn't you get the memo from the White Lotus? I'm a spiritual failure, too. Tenzin: You may have made a connection without realizing it. Perhaps something you mistook as a dream? Korra: Maybe. I had a few weird hallucinations, but I hardly even remember them. Tenzin: And did you see any previous Avatars in these visions? Korra: I saw Aang. It seemed like he was in trouble. What do you think it means? Tenzin: Hmm, I don't know. But I urge you to meditate on these visions. I believe Aang's spirit must be trying to tell you something. Mako: Korra? You out here? Bolin: Korrrrrraaaaaaaa! There you are. Are you okay? Korra: I'm fine. Mako: Come on, what's wrong? You can tell us. Korra: How am I suppose to save this city when I can't even learn airbending? I'm the worst Avatar ever! I just feel... alone. Asami Sato: No, that's nonsense! You're amazing! Mako: Yeah and remember. Aang hadn't mastered all the elements when he was battling the Fire Nation. He was just a little kid. Bolin: And he wasn't alone. He had his friends to help him. Look, the arena might be shut down but we're still a team. The new Team Avatar! Mako: We got your back Korra and we can save this city. Together. Korra: Yeah! Let's do it! Asami Sato: They're not Equalists, they're just normal people who want their rights back. Tarrlok: They are the enemy! Round up all these Equalists! [Metal benders start raising blocks off the ground with the people on them] Korra: STOP! [Korra brings them down with earthbending] Korra: Don't you see? You're doing exactly what Amon says is wrong with benders. You're using your power to oppress and intimidate people. Tarrlok: And you don't? Korra: Of-Of course not! Tarrlok: Isn't that what you came here to do? Intimidate me into releasing your friends. See, that's what I admire about you, Korra. Your willingness to go to extremes in order to get what you want. It is a quality we both share. Korra: You and I are nothing alike! Tarrlok: Look, I'll make you a deal. You fall in line and do what I say and I'll release your friends. Korra: That's why you arrested them? To get to me? Tarrlok: I need your answer. Korra: No. You might be able to manipulate Chief Saikhan into following you but it won't work on me. Tarrlok: You will regret that decision. Korra: You need to be stopped. You're just as bad as Amon. Tarrlok: I've tried to work with you, Korra, but you've made it impossible. [Tarrlok attacks Korra and they fight, with Korra getting the upper hand] [Bloodbends Korra before she can attack him] Tarrlok: You're in my way Avatar, and you need to be removed. Korra: You're, you're a bloodbender? Tarrlok: Very observant. Korra: It's-not a full moon. How- how are you doing this? Tarrlok: There are a lot of things you don't know about me. Korra: Where are you taking me? Tarrlok: Somewhere no one will find you. Say goodbye to Republic City, Avatar Korra. You'll never see it again! Korra: You can't do this! Let me out! Ahhhh! [Tarrlok drives her out of the city] Ikki: And now for the grand tour. The flying bison sleep in those caves down there. And that's the temple Grandpa Aang built. And that's the greenhouse where we grow the vegetables we eat. Bolin: I have a couple of questions. Is this an all vegetarian island? Is that where you train airbending? Do we have to wear Air Acolyte clothes? Do we each get our own sky bison? And final question, how many trees are on this island? Ikki: Yes. Yes. No. No. Ten thousand five hundred and fifty two.
