Korra S01E04, "The Voice in the Night"

Quick reactions:

Asami looking like Lust is probably a coincidence. She needs to be not-evil for story balance; I would be mildly pleased to see a MFF love triangle for novelty's sake, but otherwise I don't really care about shipping on this show. (Well, Bolin is adorable, but I kinda like him and Korra as platonic jock BFFs. Huh, I guess that is an opinion.)

Apparently the Southern & Northern Water Tribes each get a council seat?

I could have done without effeminate = evil. We knew councilor guy was skeevy without middle-child highlighting his grooming standards.

(The merits of their dispute are an interesting question. I would like to know what Tenzin was going to counter-propose; obviously they can't do nothing about Amon, but I can imagine that the public reaction to the raids might well be divisive.)

Grownup Sokka, Toph, and Aang! Hi, hi, hi!!!

My first reaction was that this episode did less than I wanted it to, but on reflection I think it's setting up some important stuff, and it's really necessary to show how freaked out Korra is and how lost she feels. I guess we'll see when the shape of the whole season becomes clearer.
