Okay so what's new with Legend of Korra Season 2? It seems Twitter user @nickandmore has leaked the first EIGHT titles of Book 2! This is the same guy who leaked the earlier titles we knew about already and so it's pretty sure he's right about these too. Embedded below is a video clip from KorraSpirit with the names of the eight upcoming titles for the Legend of Korra Season 2 episodes, but we'll also list them for you here in case you don't want to watch the video to catch them all.

@nickandmore One of the Nick peeps over at the scheduling department told me Korra will be taking a break the week of Halloween.

If this is the case then some around the web speculate that the season will likely end with an our long finale on November 29, 2013
@NickStarsTV Makes sense, so that'll be Nov. 1 - giving the last eps of the series the rest of Nov with a likely 1-hour finale on Nov. 29. — NICK AND MORE (@nickandmore) September 16, 2013
Seems hard to believe after waiting so long for the release of Legend of Korra Book 2 that the season will pass that quickly but hey, we're not complaining. After getting us caught up on what the Avatar team had been up to the last 6 months, episode one then launched into the meat of the storyline, where we see Unalaq, Eska, and making their appearances and complicating matters of course. The rest of the episode pretty much focused on the complex relationship between the characters, showcasing Tonraq's incredible stubbornness and Unalaq's somewhat manipulative personality. Meanwhile, Korra is found uncomfortably in the middle.
Korra is changing some too and I even read a few folks around the web saying they weren't exactly sure they were as fond of the female heroine as they had been in the past. Though Tensin is trying to act as a mentor for Korra, the young airbender pushes back not wanting to have another adult trying to control her. The season is definitely showing that there will be vast changes as well as man decisions ahead for Korra and the rest of the characters in Nickelodeon's Legend of Korra Book 2.
Though we could go on for days about all the new characters introduced and complexity of the plot, we'll save the judgment about the latest season for you. However, if you are looking for some thoughtful commentary on Legend of Korra, Season 2 episodes this site has some excellent bloggers who do a great job of recapping and reviewing each episode.
Below we've posted a podcast from the site, which features the site's admin along with Marshall Turner (owner of a Legend of Korra YouTube channel) as they discuss the premiere. Be sure to check it out!

So... Northern Water Tribe. What do you think they want? — Rachel Nabors (@rachelnabors) September 16, 2013
@rachelnabors I can't decide if Korra's uncle is completely evil and using her, slightly misguided, or the spiritual key to the universe.

@sarahauvil http://t.co/qV6fg1bPed But the authors are good at giving us twists. Remember Amon/Tarrlok? — Rachel Nabors (@rachelnabors) September 16, 2013

Just wanna thank @JeremyZuckerman for making the Legend of Korra soundtrack AMAZING. I especially appreciate it. — Korra (@Legend_of_Korra) September 16, 2013
The Legend of Korra is pretty cool but I really wish they would shut up about their fictional sport.
