“After All These Years”
Three years after the defeat of Zaheer, the vain Prince Wu is about to be crowned Earth King, and Mako is assigned as his bodyguard. In the Earth Kingdom, Opal and Kai try to protect a community from bandits with limited success. Kuvira, who now styles herself the “Great Uniter”, appears at the head of an army that includes Bolin, Varrick and his assistant Zhu Li. She offers the governor supplies and protection – if he submits his state to her sovereignty, which he reluctantly does. Elsewhere, a despondent Korra is fighting and losing earthbending cage matches, having apparently renounced her identity as the Avatar.

In a flashback, Korra is slowly recovering with Katara at the South Pole, but remains weak and unable to enter the Avatar State. Instead of returning to Republic City, she travels the world alone. However, she fails to find solace and is haunted by a dark vision of herself as she appeared in the fight with Zaheer. A spirit leads her to the swamp, where she succumbs to the dark apparition’s attacks but regains consciousness in the abode of Toph Beifong (Philece Sampler).

In the swamp, Toph agrees to help Korra regain her strength, primarily by beating her up with earthbending.
