Asami tells Korra she kissed Mako when Korra was gone and apologizes while Korra confesses she kissed him when Asami was going out with him.
Korra eventually tells Asami she's glad that whatever happened with Mako it hasn't come between them and how she's never had a girlfriend to hang out with and talk to. Then their heartfelt conversation almost ends with them crashing into a vine! It's an important moment where the two bond while having fun and being truthful about things.
The conversation seems to strengthen their relationship as something separate from a connection to Mako. Without him, they're still friends. Luckily Asami knows the airship they're in was cheaply made and she manages to escape the railing she's chained to! Putting a plan into motion, she frees herself and Korra, but in their escape attempt they damage the ship and it crashes into the desert.
It takes working together with the crew to repair it and for a creature to even more easily destroy all their hard work! The only way they can escape is by Asami constructing a sandsailer from the wreckage and Korra using her air bending to get them to the nearby city. As a duo they can accomplish anything they put their minds to and trust each other enough that they know they can get the job done. They free the airbenders and soon are trying to figure out how they can help Korra as she fights Zaheer.
Korra almost loses but ultimately gains the upper hand with the airbenders' help. When the episode flashes forward in time next, we see that Korra is still not recovered from the battle.
She shares a quiet moment with Asami, who is preparing her for an appearance at a ceremony for Jinora becoming a master airbender. Korra seems depressed and unenthusiastic, leading to Asami stating that no one expects her to bounce back after just two weeks and that she needs time to heal.
When Korra doesn't respond, Asami squeezes the Avatar's hand and lets Korra know she's there for her if she wants to talk or anything. It's only when she says they should try to enjoy the day for Jinora that Korra says okay. This quiet discussion shows how close the two have become and is perhaps the first hint that Asami feels more for Korra than just friendship. Between the hand squeeze, offer to be there for anything and just how Asami is continually there for Korra when the two do finally go out in public, it's all extremely touching and displays a new level of intimacy in their relationship.
We see that when she initially leaves her friends Asami offers to go with her for company. Korra responds with a no and that she'll only be away for a few weeks, but we know that becomes much longer. As she tries to deal with her traumatic experience while away, we see how Korra and Asami remained close even despite the distance.
Korra reads Asami's letter in which Asami writes that she misses her and updates her on news. She reads Mako and Bolin's letters as well, but only writes back eventually to Asami. The Avatar admits she doesn't know what to say and that the past two years have been the hardest of her life. She tells Asami about not being able to go into the Avatar state and how she has flashbacks of her fight with Zaheer. Korra also asks Asami not to tell Mako and Bolin that she wrote to her, not wanting to hurt their feelings.
While she feels she can tell Asami about all this, she doesn't think the other two would understand. All of this shows how Korra feels she can be completely herself with Asami and let her in on her feelings in a way that she can't with Mako and Bolin.
You can tell things are different between Asami and Korra when they first see each other after so much time. They hug and when Asami compliments Korra's new haircut, the Avatar blushes and says Asami is looking "snazzy as always.
The two then join Mako and over the course of the conversation it's revealed that Asami and Korra kept in touch. The script was reworked sometime before the confirmation of the second season.
Konietzko wrote that Asami's resemblance to the character Lust from the anime series Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood was coincidental, as he had not seen the series at the time of Asami's design in After it was revealed that she was not an Equalist spy, The A.
Club noted that "it turns out that Asami's not bad—she's just drawn that way. In her introductory episode "The Voice in the Night", Asami is also seen wearing formal attire, two different dresses, one while on her initial date with Mako and the other while attending a gala with him.
Her coat, which debuted in the season two episode " Rebel Spirit ", was based off one Konietzko saw on a Japanese fashion website. Asami Sato as she appeared in season four; three years older, a bit taller, and with a changed hairstyle.
The character was given a slightly different design in the fourth and final season of the series, which was revealed via a trailer for the season in September Asami was shown to have a different hairstyle, different clothing and grown in height. Her design went through a series of revisions, which included appearances with a hat and different hairstyles.
DiMartino wrote that he loved the final version of her fourth season appearance, finding it to be a "nice balance of formal business attire and fashion forward elegance.
Club found her clothing to be more business-oriented than her previous attire and her hair to be worn in a similar manner to her mother. She especially liked that they were two girls who did not let "a guy get between them", feeling that they were stronger together as well.
Recognizing the captain of the pro-bending team "Fire Ferrets", she invites him out to dinner by way of apology. A fan of pro-bending, she offers to become the team's sponsor. She meets Korra at a gala thrown in her honor by Tarrlok, commenting that Mako had told her much about her and making Korra jealous.
On a date with Mako in Republic City Park, she expresses her trust in him while resting against him. Asami takes the brothers and Korra to a racetrack to watch the test-driving of the Satomobiles. Noticing Korra's excitement over seeing them, she takes her on a ride while at the same time racing against one of the drivers, encouraging her to "mix it up sometimes. Her father, Hiroshi Sato, maintained a hatred of all benders thereafter - this is his motivation for joining the Equalists, an anti-bending movement that served as the antagonistic group of season one.
Upon discovering her father's role, Asami joins with Korra, Bolin, and Mako, to form Team Avatar, turning against her father. With Bolin's help, she defeats and captures Hiroshi. She questions Bolin about it and presses the evasive earthbender about his brother, who he reveals previously shared a kiss with Korra.
Mako's relationships | Avatar Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia
Following the group finding her, she confronted Mako over their kiss and when he tried to schedule their conversation for another time, she alluded to the possibility of breaking up with him before they could do so. Mako and Korra irritated with one another after their argument over Mako's feelings for Korra.
After the end of Korra and Bolin's date, Mako confronted Korra and accused her of playing games with Bolin only to get back at him. Both of them glared at one another and stormed away. After a particularly rocky match due to their uneasiness with each other, he went out to talk to Korra and confessed his true feelings by saying while she was "infuriating and drove him crazy", he still thought she was "pretty amazing".
However, despite admitting that he had deep feelings for Korra, he also had such feelings for Asami, leaving him confused and unsure of how to handle this. Korra immediately followed this statement by impulsively kissing him; he was stunned, but kissed her back with equal enjoyment.
This moment was disrupted by a heartbroken Bolin, who fled from the scene crying. This led to a quick, heated argument between Korra and Mako. After the pro-bending match, they acknowledged that taking their relationship further was causing friction between them and everyone else, agreeing to for now just maintain a casual friendship, despite their mutual affection for each other. After being saved by Chief Beifong from falling to her death from the arena ceiling, he was the first to run over to hug her and told her he was "so glad" she was okay.
Mako and Korra's relationship hit another snag when Korra began suspecting Asami's father, Hiroshi Satoof working with the Equalists. Mako threatened to break off his friendship with Korra if she did not drop her investigation against the Satos. When Korra refused to drop her claim and stated that she was sorry, Mako gave her an angry look and walked away with Asami.
When Korra went with TenzinLin Beifong, and members of the Metalbending Police Force to look for Hiroshi's secret factoryhe wanted to go with her, but was told to remain with Bolin and Asami, and was watched by a metalbending officer.
Before Korra disappeared down the tunnel, she cast a sad look back at Mako. He looked down out of guilt and shame because of accusing her of formulating lies and threatening to end their friendship earlier. Mako heard the platinum wall close, and with Bolin, he cleverly tricked the metalbender cop watching the three of them by sneezing out fire.
The three made their way underground to save the investigating party. Mako and Bolin found Korra and the others unconscious, about to be taken to Amon on Hiroshi's orders. The brothers attempt to get them to safety.
While Bolin went to get Tenzin, Mako made his way to Korra, hoisted her onto his back, and started to help his brother drag Chief Beifong, but they were discovered by Hiroshi and some Equalists. It was only when Asami intervened, electrocuting her father with a glove which allowed them to escape to the police airship.
On board the airship, making their way to the Republic City coast, Mako apologized to Korra and admitted that she was right. Korra accepted the apology and invited Mako, Bolin, and Asami to live on Air Temple Island in addition to advising him to comfort his girlfriend in her time of need, despite her feelings for him.
Mako tried to comfort her by telling her, Aang did not learn all the elements right away and that he, Bolin, and Asami had her back. The four later formed Team Avatar and started to patrol Republic City's streets in order to fight crime. Before getting into the car when another police report aired from the Satomobile radio, Mako let Korra in first and smiled at each other in the car, much to Asami's displeasure.
Later, when Mako, Bolin, and Asami were put into the police vehicle after defying Tarrlok; Mako darted Korra a sad look, which Korra returned with a sad expression, saying, "Tenzin will get you out".
Immediately upon finding her, Mako beginning to express his concern for Korra and her safety. When Mako learned that Korra was missing, he grew angry and refused to believe that she was gone and led the expedition to find her. After coming to his senses, he became very determined to find her, almost beating up an Equalist in order to obtain a lead to Korra's whereabouts.
When Naga returned with Korra on her back, Mako pushed Lin and Tenzin out of the way, demanding that they should "give her some space". Asami watched with a sad look as Mako carried Korra in his arms and told her how worried he was about her and how relieved he was that she was okay. Korra responded by telling him that she was okay, smiled, and rested her head against his chest while he carefully carried her atop Oogi.
He laid her down, and gently brushed her face and the mark on her cheek to reassure her that she was safe.
Korra responded to Mako's touch by relaxing and closing her eyes. He held her hand and curled his fingers around it softly, waiting for her to wake up. Asami witnessed this with an angry and hurt expression, though her presence was unknown to Mako. He later asked Asami to boil some water for Korra and she responded to Mako by telling him to heat it up himself because he was a firebender. This led to an argument and Asami storming out of the kitchen.
He told her that they had to keep moving, and wrapped his arm around her. They walked together into the water pipeline, seeming oblivious to Asami, who appeared to have little emotion showing, and left her trailing behind everyone else. Mako and Korra sharing a moment.
After attending an Equalist rally disguised as chi blockers, Korra, frustrated by one of Hiroshi Sato 's accusations, stated that they should "go back up there and knock some heads! Later that night, Korra was sitting awake by Naga when Mako sat down next to her, asking if she could not sleep either. She replied by telling him that she had a pit in her stomach, presumably from nervousness.
The two continued to talk, and after Korra reminisced on the past, contemplating that a few months earlier she was in the South Pole practicing for her firebending test, and now she was in the middle of an "all-out war".
