No because they put the rest of the episodes up online and I couldn't watch it. And maybe that's why Nick took it off of TV and put it online instead.

How? Please explain this to me. I can see this as a fan pairing or liking the concept of them being a pair, but what have either done that screams romantic pair that can't be written off as friendship?

There are subtle clues written in here and there, the subtle ways they interaction and the way Shinigami always rests her hand on Karai's shoulder. Plus the show is written by men, you know what they are thinking.

I actually agree with him. It's not so much in the dialogue as it is in their exchanged glances and subtle body language.

The writers might not have it in mind, but the storyboard artists or animators do.

With Korra and Asami's becoming lesbians, it was left really subtle in a take it as you will scene that involved the two of them going off to visit the Spirit World together. And depending on how you viewed it looked like two people just going off on a journey as friends, or as lovers.

And afterward the producers did explain that scene was meant to imply they had become lovers.

There are also implied same-sex relationships in Friendship is magic namely between the background characters Lyra and Bonbon. Except the closest thing they could say is that their 'Best Friends'.

With Karai and Shini, it will probably be similar to Korra and Asami in that they would have some hints. But it's largely taking things as you interpret them rather then coming out and saying it.

Not to judge a book by its cover, but yeah. Totally.

Remember Karai's street clothes in "Karai's Vendetta"? She gay.

Two reasons:

1. I have Internet minutes and watching videos uses up a lot of data.

2. I'm taking care of my father and I don't have a lot of time to sit down and watch a bunch of episodes. I'm lucky I get to do much of anything because taking care of him takes up a lot of time and can get very stressful.

Edit: As for Karai and Shinigami, I think they are just good friends. Plus, I'm a Leorai and Shiniangelo shipper so you know who I'd love to see them with.

Great episode, love the setup for this season and I adore Kavaxas' design (not to mention his voice actor).

Leo nursing Mikey was adorable, as well as the way Leo's face lit up when he saw Karai.

Agreed on both counts.

I was honestly surprised to see that Rahzar was actually dead.

I doubt that, Loud House has a side character who has two dads and Nick is giving that show a theatrical movie.

You just nitpick my posts because you have a hate-boner for me. Shini is literally dressed up as a sexy witch. More likely than not, she's into chicks.

I fail to understand the logic here. The way a person dresses shouldn't be an indicator of what a person's orientation is.

Shini dresses like a witch and uses illusionary almost "magic" like skills. Seems appropriate to me.

Shouldn't be, but sometimes it is.

I kinda see where you guys are getting the whole lesbians things. While I haven't seen the episodes, the designs kind of evoke that mindset, especially Shinigami. If I say someone dressed like that in real life, I'd assume something's up. (I'd also fall head-over-heels for her, but that's besides the point. )

Its less of a hate boner and more of an annoyance turn on also I don't get the connection between sexy witch and being into girls, last time I checked lots of guys liked sexy witches so its not like its exclusive to lesbians.
