Although Mako can bend lightning, and it's shown others can too, it's not nearly as powerful in this season as it used to be. It seems like bending isn't very powerful anymore. Lightning was such a big deal, and so strong before. I don't want it to be like god mode, but towards the end of Ang's series, they emphasized about how dangerous it is. Also, how did Amon have the same power as Ang? Thought that was kind of ridiculous.
I do however, like the flashbacks that Korra sees when she passes out. I wonder if that was Ang or Tenzin with the short beard. I want to see more flashbacks.
the techniques in bending seem to have improved, which is why so many people can bend lightning and metal now compared to before. however the longevity/stamina of their bending seems to have decreased. i know they're going for a spiritual revival thing (most of the benders, like korra, have focused on the physical aspects and not the spiritual) and i think this will cause an increase in the length of time they can bend.
amon shares some sort of ties to aang, though i'm not sure what they will be. the flashbacks korra got when he knocked her out seem to indicate that he was around during the time of aang's adulthood.
the way aang took away bending required inner balance, if i recall the turtle episode correctly. i wonder if we're supposed to assume that amon has also achieved this or if his method of taking away bending is more related to chaos.
i can't wait to see what happens next
