In which I may actually like Borra more than Makorra now. Though I don’t really ship either to be honest.
“Mmm, this is the best tasting street gruel I’ve ever had! Seriously!”
Alright, now that all my Makorra shipper feelings are out of the way, I want to get to what is really important to me in these clips.
The brothers and by extension the living conditions of the people underground.
Now most of you, might look at this part and say “Oh Bolin you’re so precious.” “Oh Bolin, you’re so funny!”
No. This…this I believe that this is the least comical thing he’s said since episode four. Do any of you remember where the fabulous bending brothers were before they were fabulous? Right where Gommu is:
On the streets.
In fact I think that this year is the first year which they were not on the streets, if my assumption is correct then this scene is not unfamiliar to them in the least bit. I would be so impressed with Bryke if it was the bro’s who led the krew down here because that is where they used to live. I would even applaud them for this because it would be the only consistency the brothers have. Of course because I say this it probably wont happen and Gommu probably finds them shortly after episode 10’s ending and will be turned into a ”wtf GOMMU WHERE’D YOU COME FROM LOL” comedy scene…but wouldn’t it be nice?
Now lets look back at this quote. This is Bolin being polite of course, but there is such a layer of depth underneath it. They lived on the streets for most of their lives, meaning they probably had to eat food like this day in and day out with maybe some stale bread on good days. This isn’t just Bolin cracking a joke, this is him telling a bit of their story. He is being sincere. He continues to eat this while Asami throws it up because he knows.
He knows how little food there is to spare in the real world, and he would never in a million years pass it up. Mako probably taught him if he wanted to survive then that was what they had to eat so he did. That’s just how their life was. Heck even Pabu knows better, because he was used to it too!
I understand Asami had a cushy life with fancy chefs and in no way is this lifestyle wrong. But that sort of attitude is not a luxury Bolin or Mako can afford they never could. So of course they are going to continue eating, they knew what it was the second they sat down. They knew what they had to do to survive then and just because they lived a better life for a year doesn’t mean they threw their survival skills to the wind, they just adapted, and now they’re adapting back.
I really hope this is what Bryke had in mind when writing this down, and that I’m not looking too much into this. Because this little scene, though small and perhaps insignificant to shipping is important to me and all bromotional fans out there.
Long live the bro’s development and lifestyle.
Long live the bromotions.
Mako, don’t blame Bolin because you weren’t man enough to tell her yourself. D:<

There are two things to learn here:
1) Jinora wants some.
2) Bolin is a boy.
Remember when Korra was telling Tarrlok that she would not back down just so he would release her friends, and he said “you’re going to regret that.”
TARRLOK, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO TO MY BABIES?
