The threat of Amon and The Equalists has become apparent to the Republic City Council. Councilman Tarrlok puts forward the motion to create a special task force to combat this new threat, and wishes to recruit Korra to help lead it. Initially, Korra declines, but is eventually persuaded into joining, much to Tenzin’s dismay. With the young Avatar joining the task force, Tarrlok will create an even larger divide between benders and non-benders. After a raid on a Equalist training facility, Korra publicly challenges Amon to a duel, in an attempt to bring him out and bring him to justice.
