A nice piece, with many character developing vignettes, along with actually seeing some things hinted at or promised earlier (such as ice dodging). All in all, it gave me the feel of setting things up for a big payoff in the next part, promised to be S5M5 Taken by Storm. (I've been wildly wrong about things like that before - 11 years ago I thought S4's Interlude at Vortigern's Lake No. 2 in C (For Today) was going to be the end of the Symphony because of everything that went on in it and the way it ended.)
I want Minami's "little boat". A broom indicates "victory at sea"? I thought it indicated a series sweep. Well, they were ice dodging, and curling is on ice too, and they use brooms and sweeps there, so it's logical. Sort of. Korra's not denying she has a "new team", which has truly become "new family". Wondering what Utena's going to come up with for Korra's problem with Corwin tho. Wonder if Corwin's really taken on board what Nall told him about him (Nall) being around humans too much, wrt Garnet's upbringing. I was half-expecting Emily to show up at the celebration, but we got a new cub-photographer instead. And Nyima maybe got a boyfriend! What are the implications when a straight-on bear shows up? And finally, that was probably the wildest rose duel seen yet.
Oh, and who won the season opener?
