"Rebel Spirit" is the thirteenth episode of The Legend of Korra, and the first episode of the show's second season.


Six months after the previous episode, Korra believes she has mastered airbending, Mako works as a policeman, Bolin fares poorly in pro-bending with the new "Fire Ferrets", and Asami tries to keep Future Industries afloat.

With Tenzin and his brother Bumi, now retired from the military, the friends visit Korra's and Tenzin's family in the Southern Water Tribe. They reunite with Tenzin's mother Katara and his sister Kya, as well as Korra's parents Tonraq and Senna. Also arriving for the solstice festival is the Northern Water Tribe's chief Unalaq and his twin children Desna and Eska. Unalaq criticizes the Southern Tribe's loss of spirituality and seeks to tutor Korra in the ways of the spirits. Meanwhile, Asami sets up a business deal with the eccentric shipping magnate and movie producer Varrick, and Eska adopts Bolin as her boyfriend.

After an angry spirit attacks the festival, and Korra tries to fight it off to no avail, it is instantly calmed by Unalaq. Despite her father's warnings, Korra chooses Unalaq instead of Tenzin as her spiritual teacher.
