You’ll find people like this person who are like “I CANNOT WITH U PPL WHY R U SO IMMATURE GAWD GUYS GROW UP WHY CAN’T EVERYONE BE LIEK MEEEEEE”
You know, never mind the fact that they themselves are only good at dishing out half-assed insults with nothing to back it up with. Just ignore them. This maitsuwhatsit character won’t matter in a real, intelligent discussion.
Tell me about it. If you want to disagree with the above post then that’s fine, but if you have nothing to contribute other than “OMG EVERYONE IS SO IMMATURE AND I’M A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE” or randomly insulting people who disagree with you, then go away.
The breakup scene was ambiguous and if a good chunk of the fandom wasn’t aware that it was supposed to be a breakup, then it’s a case of bad writing, not someone “being immature”. My dad’s 60 and he wasn’t sure if that was supposed to be the breakup. After the finale someone asked Bill Rinaldi (who is on the LOK staff) about the Masami breakup and he thought it happened off-screen. Even some people who worked on the show weren’t entirely sure if that was the breakup.
(Whatever you do, don’t break up with someone like that in real life.)
Even if the Masami breakup was more clear, Korra still got character regression after episode 7. While she’s not actively trying to destroy Asami and Mako’s relationship anymore, she still flirts with Mako in episode 8 and lets Mako fawn over her in episodes 9, 10, and 11. Mako almost kisses Korra before he and Asami break up in episode 11 and the only reason why Korra doesn’t kiss back is “fear of getting hurt again” and not out of concern for how Asami might feel about it.
(I used to think that Korra did think about Asami’s feelings in that scene, but a script reading at Comic-Con confirmed that Korra basically didn’t give a crap about how Asami might feel about it.)
It was a mature and thoughtful thing for Korra to give up perusing Mako romantically at the end of episode 7, but it got undone right away when the writers had to make their pet OTP happen. Even if Korra isn’t actively trying to break up Asami and Mako, she still lets Mako hang all over her and doesn’t seem concerned at all that Mako isn’t looking out for Asami like he’s supposed to. Korra also isn’t that oblivious so she must be aware of the problems that are going on between them, but she just stands back at lets it happen. (And lets Mako hang all over her and never gets called out on for kissing someone else’s boyfriend.)
But at any rate, she didn’t gainsay him at all from 8 on. Their vaunted belligerent sexual tension seemed to just sort of evaporate.
