"Sorry, I just kind of lost myself in the moment. It just felt so right!" -Bolin
i felt like i was having an out of body experience watching this. and they didn’t even pick up on the lack of consent, it was the rather that ginger/character she was playing aren’t the same person. no shit.
honestly i dont even consider s2 bolin and s1 bolin the same character. this was really gross and god its so easy to address things in media, it doesnt take too much time, she shouldve slapped the shit out of him. this is gross. i never wanted to see the definition of rape culture in one of my favorite characters. i literally hate this show so much i cant believe how much time ive spent thinking about it.
best part is that he ends up cheating on her anyway
"What did you do? You can’t steal from the Lion Turtle!"
Wan’s acquisition of fire through deception fits with the thematic theft of fire (similar to Prometheus in Greek Mythology and other mythologies), in which an individual steals fire for the benefit of humanity. In this case, Wan’s acquirement of firebending indirectly helped bring balance to both the physical and spirit realms.
