Legend of Korra Finale

‘The Legend of Korra’ finale is over with, and it has been met with rave reviews. The two part special to close the follow up to ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ was full of surprises, drama, action, and suspense. With all that being said, there is one scene from the final half hour which stands out.

The final shot of ‘The Legend of Korra’ depicts Korra and Asami looking deeply into one another’s eyes, while heading off to the Spirit World holding hands. The scene is beautiful, and the Internet exploded with ‘Korrasami’ fans, people who wanted to see Korra and Asami together.

Creators of the show, Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, have confirmed ‘Korrasami’ in two different posts. They claim the ending of ‘The Legend of Korra’ finale is intentional, and Korra and Asami are in love.

DiMartino says:

Our intention with the last scene was to make it as clear as possible that yes, Korra and Asami have romantic feelings for each other. The moment where they enter the spirit portal symbolizes their evolution from being friends to being a couple.

He acknowledges the fact that some people might not be happy with the ending, but he’s happy with the reception of the finale.

I get that not everyone will be happy with the way that the show ended. Rarely does a series finale of any show satisfy that show’s fans, so I’ve been pleasantly surprised with the positive articles and posts I’ve seen about Korra’s finale.

I’ve already read some heartwarming and incredible posts about how this moment means so much for the LGBT community. Once again, the incredible outpouring of support for the show humbles me.

Konietzko says:

We approached the network and while they were supportive there was a limit to how far we could go with it, as just about every article I read accurately deduced. It was originally written in the script over a year ago that Korra and Asami held hands as they walked into the spirit portal.

He thinks the ‘Korrasami’ ending isn’t a monumental step for LGBT representation, but he hopes it’s significant in moving forward.

Was it a slam-dunk victory for queer representation? I think it falls short of that, but hopefully it is a somewhat significant inching forward.

Korra and Asami are in a relationship at the of ‘The Legend of Korra’ finale. Are you pleased with Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko confirming ‘Korrasami’?
