Chapter Nine: The Stakeout

Team Avatar follows Aiwei to the Misty Palms Oasis, and Korra enters the Spirit World to find Aiwei and Zaheer meeting there. Zaheer throws Aiwei into the Fog of Lost Souls and explains the goals of his secret society, the Red Lotus, to Korra: an offshoot of the Order of the White Lotus, they want to overthrow governments, in service of the ideological belief that chaos is the natural state of the world. While Zaheer stalls for time, his allies close in on Korra’s inanimate body. Bolin and Mako are overpowered, while Asami, fleeing on Naga with Korra’s body, is captured by the Earth Queen’s forces. The Red Lotus follows in pursuit.
