I'm really glad they finally had the core four characters working together as a team this time around. Their initial chi blocker bust had some great imagery -- Korra and Bolin's dual earthbending was especially awesome. The way they formed those ramps was a perfect example of fully optimizing bender abilities.
It was also nice to see Asami using her dad's electricity glove again; they're doing a good job of making her seem not entirely useless. Who needs polar bear dogs when you've got wheels like that? It was also cool getting to see the Metalbending Police Force do some actual earthbending. I was beginning to wonder if they could even do it at all.
The way they handled that non-bender rally was pretty choice. But even more epic was Korra's face-off with Tarrlock afterwards. Korra kicked some serious butt! But perhaps the most jaw-dropping moment was when we got to see Tarrlock bloodbending Who knew the guy had it in him?
It'll be interesting to see if they address how he learned that in a future episode. Ikki Korra [From behind the door; just as angrily. Ikki looks down and moans sadly.

Inside the room, Korra sighs and scratches her head awkwardly.
Asami I think it's really charming [Walks to the window. I swear [Turns slightly to face and point at the door. Cut to Korra's blanched out face; slightly higher pitched tone. Tenzin [Side-shot as he walks toward them. Asami, welcome to the island. Asami [Bowing down at Tenzin. I think we should both be there. Cut to the outside of the Police Headquarters, a large crowd standing at the front with Saikhan at the podium.

It is with great humility that I take her place as the new Chief of Police. Republic City is facing a threat like none the world has ever seen but there is one man who's been effective against Amon's revolution, Councilman Tarrlok. They look at Tarrlok with disdain, and the camera cuts to a shot of the council chairman. Cut to an overview shot of the police headquarters, before focusing on Tarrlok again.
As the crowd disperses after the inauguration, he gives the Fire Nation councilwoman a hands, who leaves with the other council members; he bows after them in their direction.
Tenzin [To Tarrlok; accusingly. Did you ever consider Saikhan simply recognizes my talents and wants what is best for this city?

Long time, no see. Now that your little pro-bending distractions are over, I look forward to your return to my task force. 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.

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.

Places her hand on top and Meelo suddenly descends and airbends down, farting on top on their hands as they express their shock and disgust by widening their eyes.
Meelo [Raises his arm, grinning.

Bolin [In a deep, dramatic voice. Korra leads Naga next to Bolin and Mako stands on the other side. Mako [Asami approaches the team wielding an electrified glove. Asami I figure one way to fight Equalists is to use an Equalist weapon.
