    This has more plot potential for Asami than anything...what if she has to win back the gang's trust in season 2?

    You mean like she is an Equalist, regrets it and has to win back their trust?

    Anything is better than the cliche of hot girl who takes main protagonists love interest is an evil bitch.

    She may be evil but it doesn't mean she's a bitch she may have a good reason to be evil, if she is

    Didn't Asami's mother die?

    Maybe it's a bender related death.

    She said "I lost my mother when I was very young" Dunno if she died/left, but assuming she died, that's a theory

    Maybe she thinks what she's doing for the Equalists is the right thing for everybody and doesn't realize Amon's true intentions, or maybe the Satos are being threatened to help Amon.

    I'm positive the writers will add more depth to her either way.

    Here's a nice tidbit of info...

    The Aftermath: Korra begins to suspect an ally is working for the Equalists.

    Gee I wonder who that might be?

    Pabu seems awfully suspicious to me :3

    Well, the "Asami is an Equalist" theory has now been officially debunked.


    Her FATHER was one, but she pretty blatantly isn't, as she turned on her father and left her home and riches behind in order to help the Benders.


    At this point, the only way she could be an Equalist is if all that was just an act, but really now, do you honestly think she'd be that skilled an actress, or that the story would take that convoluted a turn?

    Ah yes, the "I hate this female character because she dares to like a guy who I feel belongs with someone else" mentality.


    Mako, of course, isapparently blameless here even though he likes her back. UGH. Yell

    Admittedly, they've both been pissing me off in the recent episodes. It's all KorraxPabu now, baby!


    Also, I heard that Asami's character was made to be reminiscent of Lust from FMA? They do have a similar look.

    it's still possible. I mean, all the reasons we thought she was an equalist are still there, it's just clouded by the fact that she put down her father. Maybe Asami has a bigger role in the Equalist plot, Amon's right hand woman/maybe even Amon him/herself? Maybe she had to take out her father to prove to Korra and everyone else that she isn't one, but truly is. I mean, skilled in self-defense since a little girl, there are still possibilities for her to be a double agent, so to speak.

    Asami is not an Equalist. Deal with it. It is clear as day what direction the writers are going with her character, so just get over it if it is not what you were hoping for. Just like Zutara that was not the writers were going for. So Deal With It.

    And what "reasons" are those beyond shallow, stupid ones that frankly come across as prejudice?


    :

    Clouded? She put down her father after he tried to get her to JOIN the Equalists. Wouldn't he probablyKNOW if she already WAS one?


    :
    Amon's right hand woman/maybe even Amon him/herself?


    1.Amon has the Lieutenant as his right hand already. Y'know, the guy Asami knocked out alongside her father?


    2. Asami working for Amon would be a blatant, stupid rehash of Ozai and Azula. Is that what you want?


    3.Amon? Are you kidding? Amon, in voice and build, is 100% MALE.


    :
    I mean, skilled in self-defense since a little girl


    Which is more of an explanation as to how she'd be able to fight ON Korra's side, NOT against it.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.


    Asami is quite clearly meant to be the main non-bending ally of Korra, like Sokka and Suki from the last series. She's here to show that not every non-Bender are Equalists or Equalist supporters, there are non-Benders like her who are more that capable of coexisting with Benders peacefully.

    I think if she was going to be a double agent they would have had the last scene with her hugging Mako wearing a sinister grin on her face, they didn't so she's cool.

    I am against the double agent idea, but if the writers do want it to happen they want it to be a surprise and so not give us a sinister grin at the end of this episode.

    I see only two waysAsami joins the Equalists. She pretends to join the Equalists a plan to spy on them, but only she and Tenzin are in on the plan. Or she is captured by the Equalists and brainwashed to join them like the Dai Lee did to Jet. Though if that first scenero happened that would cause major strief between Tenzin and the Krew especially Tenzin and Korra. They would much easier forgiveAsami than they would Tenzin would be the master mind of the plan and putting them through the emotional rollicoaster of Asami seemingly betraying them.
