Out of the Past
When Extremes Meet is the eighth season of season one of Legend of Korra. It aired on June 2, 2012 on Nickelodeon   in the United States.


At his induction as Beifong's replacement, Police Chief Saikhan vows to support Tarrlok's task force; but Korra quarrels with Tarrlok. As she expresses frustration with her inability to airbend, Tenzin asks her to obtain help from her past lives by meditating on brief visions of Aang. Asami, Mako, Bolin, and Korra patrol the city and capture escaping Equalists, to Tarrlok's disapproval. Soon after Tarrlok places all non-benders under a curfew, Korra tries to free unarmed civilians captured by police, and Tarrlok arrests her friends to stop her. Korra refuses to comply with his wishes to secure her friends' release, and compares him to Amon, whereupon Tarrlok attacks her; eventually to subdue her by revealing his blood-bending powers.
