”Please don’t tell Mako and Bolin I wrote to you and not them; I don’t want to hurt their feelings, but it’s easier to tell you about this stuff. I don’t think they’d understand.”
I’ve been thinking about that single line a lot: I don’t think they’d understand. And I see two possible interpretations of it.
The first one is Korra saying that she doesn’t think Mako and Bolin will be able to understand what she’s going through. I’d say, though, that Mako and Bolin have gone through just as much as Asami. All have lost things, and felt lost themselves, and I don’t think there’s much reason for Asami to understand more than them, experience-wise (at least significantly). So that leads me to put more faith into the second interpretation.
Which is… Korra saying that she doesn’t think Mako and Bolin will be able to understand why she prefers to talk to Asami over them. If this interpretation is correct, it means that whatever reason she feels more comfortable talking to Asami, it’s probably a complicated one. If it was just because Asami is another woman, she could just say that outright, and the brothers would understand. It wouldn’t be that difficult for them to conceptualize. But Korra specifically says ‘I don’t think they’d understand’.
There’s something deeper there, there’s a trust she knows she has with Asami that she doesn’t have with them. Even though Bolin and Mako have been her friends for much longer, and even though you could say that Korra has been in closer relationship with Mako. It’s just something she has with Asami that she will never have with them.
And she doesn’t think Mako and Bolin will understand. I wonder if Korra understands it completely herself.
